As a child photographer, and especially as a mom myself, I always try to be ready for those perfect, candid moments of children just being themselves. Having fun. Giggling. Playing. Reflecting. Having a serious moment. And even having those meltdowns we all are familiar with! Remember this image I posted a few months ago? It is of my daughter. We had been playing at the park and enjoying a warm fall evening. She just LOVES the swings. I’m so happy I had my camera with me and was able to capture this image of her. She is loving life! I submitted this image a few months ago to the I Heart Faces blog for their monthly photo challenge. There were over 500 entries and mine was chosen as one of their top ten. I cannot tell you how excited I was and still am to have been chosen among so many amazing photographers! To see the rest of the winners, visit I Heart Faces here!!! Columbia, SC Child Photographer.
