So, speaking of being bored…last weekend I got INSPIRED instead.
Oh man, I felt ON FIRE with inspiration during this trip we took with our awesome friends. Their kids MOVE. And CRY. And jump & run & feed themselves & explore & throw things & so so much more. They are so great. And exactly what I was in need of.
It was challenging & fun. It was difficult to be photographer, as well as mom, wife & friend, but I was happy to try & find a balance. Had I been just playing the role of photographer on this trip, I would definitely have some regrets of moments I missed or things I could have framed better (if I weren’t pushing a stroller or carrying a baby). My biggest regret would have been not making more pictures of the kids with mom. Thankfully I did get a few good ones right at the end of the trip, and in those the framing was SO difficult as we were in close quarters with a table & chairs that were bolted to the ground.
Anyway, I’m really proud of how these turned out & I am especially proud that these were all captured 100% undirected. Now I just cannot wait until I get another opportunity to shoot like this…
