Bunny Rene

Apologies again for being rather quiet, while I have been rather busy taking photos the time to edit and upload them eludes me! But I will make more of an effort over the December holidays! For now here are some of the photos I took of little Rene. These were for her invitation to her birthday party. For some I used my new studio lights which I am absolutely loving to bits – well worth the arm and the leg they cost!

The essence of life

Today I had the opportunity to take some pictures of some children. I found it was difficult for me to get down to the right angle to photograph them nicely. However, when I looked at the resulting photos I realised that the freedom that a child has oozes out of them in leaps and bounds and no matter what angle you photograph them from they still look so free and so alive and so happy.

And so, the name of this post, The essence of life, is in truth everything that a child embodies. As a child everything is fascinating, and even the smallest things can put a smile on your face. Why do so many of us lose this freedom in adulthood? I challenge you today to feel like a kid again. Be free. Be happy. And feel the joy of life radiate through your soul!
