I am trying to become more spontaneous in my photography, to capture more candid shots and less posed smiles. I think the secret is to just to keep clicking. When my daughter was an infant, I took pictures of her constantly. But now I find myself lazier with the camera, or maybe it is just because we are busy doing other things. I am grateful for this project because it challenges me to capture these moments, reflect on them, and remember the little moments of our day.
The hardest part about this week’s photo was choosing the right one to post. As any mom of a toddler knows, they are always on the move, oftentimes two or three steps ahead of us with their energy. So my photos capture movement, spirit, energy. They are candid, not posed, of a little girl exploring nature and the world around her.
