A Delight in Light

I truly had a wonderful time this Sunday capturing our 5 yr old princess.   Everything about our mini session was delightful.  We did lots of giggling.

And I had the most amazing time playing with the light all around her.

I wanted to take out the background and make the next two photos just about her and how the light was playing on the side of her face.   {1/640 f/2.8 ISO 100}

I switched up my settings just a little bit to bring back in some of the background colors while still allowing some of the shadows to remain.  {1/400 f/2.8 ISO 125}

Sometimes my favorite shots are the ones when my subject looks away and their true emotion comes out.

I think the next three are my favorites from our time near the river.  I just love how the light on the water created such magical bokeh.

OK, the last photo just does me in.  

Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!

  1. Her personality shines through loud and clear! She is a delight in light Jill. This week I am in a mood for laughter and seeking what is good and pure and lovely. So glad I was able to see this sweet child's smile this morning.

    Love you,
    Debbie
