When I saw this picture download this weekend, out of the 700+ I took since Friday, it instantly became one of my favorites. We celebrate my niece’s second birthday this weekend. While I was there, I was talking with one of the other guests about photography. She said she could tell it was more than just a hobby for me by watching me decide what pictures to take, and asked me what my favorite style was. For me, it’s all about the candids. I much prefer taking those over posed shots. I’d rather take my kids to a park, let them do their thing, while I sit back and take a million snaps. It’s real. It’s life. And for me (and my subjects), the most fun. In the above picture, Sadie was watching for party guests to arrive.
