Pure Joy! Catching Water Drops

June 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

During a recent family reunion session I was delighted to see a bunch of cousins who were so excited to be with one another.  As soon as I saw them spill out of their cars and run to the playground I knew it would be a fun experience.   Once all of the formal poses were completed I began to capture the candid shots. The kids got to play and those smiles of joy started gushing forth.  A few of my favorites from that session include the one below that I call "Catching Water Drops."

Little "C" was just so much fun to watch.  She radiated pure joy whenever there was an opportunity such as the water spewing from the fountain. IMG_2307

In another series, "C" was playing with her cousin and brother on a sit-down see-saw.  I had to switch my camera settings to a fast shutter speed to catch all of that action.   I caught a series of those fun shots and put them in a triptych that I got from TheCoffeeShopBlog.  I rotated the original storyboard since my images were in landscape.  I wanted to capture this series in succession the way you get them from a photo booth.

 

Triptych fun Lastly, there was this one particular shot that caught my eye.  The little boy, "J" was looking at his mother with so much wonder and love.  These are the moments that are so elusive.  Before you know it, those newborn days melt into toddlers and then suddenly they don't want to hold your hand anymore.  Those are the moments that I love to capture.  Before they are gone, far too soon.
