 photo IMG_0025edit.jpg  photo IMG_0042edit.jpgI wanted to share this quote from Kelle's instagram this week because I feel the exact same way when I sit down to edit pictures from the week:

" One of my favorite things about photography: that moment of "church" at my desk when I am editing photos- given the chance to stare at a moment for much longer than it actually lasted. Noticing things that might have been ignored. Seeing the people and things I love with a different perspective. The art of picture-taking has truly made me a more observant, grateful, life-loving human."

I love this so much and I feel the same way about photography and even blogging. I love revisiting a moment, reading back on a feeling or staring at a picture and what it means to me. It gives you the beautiful chance to appreciate the little things in life and see the beauty in it all.
I love seeing the details and an expression on a little one's face that in "real time" might have only lasted for a second. 

It's all so lovely.   photo IMG_0255edit.jpg  photo IMG_0286edit.jpg  photo IMG_0201edit.jpg  photo photoedit.jpg  photo IMG_0044edit.jpg  photo IMG_0024edit.jpg  photo IMG_0245edit.jpg  photo IMG_0283edit.jpg  photo IMG_0213edit.jpg  photo IMG_0226edit.jpg

  19. LOVE that. Yes, I think anything that makes us see the world through new eyes is so wonderful. It can be many things. Taking photos, writing, acting, a language...there is so much in our daily moments isn't there.
