I really love this picture of my daughter Emma, it was taken at the altar at our church. I really like it because it looks like she is praying, she's actually just trying to climb the steps trying to get to daddy, (hes a drummer). BUT it does look like she's praying, and it makes me kinda emotional. I have the responsibility to be an example to my daughter. To be a woman of prayer, and a woman who trusts in God. I have to show her and teach her to love God with all her heart, to worship him in spirit and truth, to live for Him.

and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
I have been reading many blog posts about using natural light indoors, and how to properly take these photos especially if you have a dark home and not a lot of window light (which is my case) and it doesn't help that we painted our walls grey, so its especially hard to get all that wonderful natural light flooding in. So I had to work with what I had. I made it as dark as possible in the background, and brought some toys to the spot where I wanted Emma to play while I took some pictures (our front door). I need practice, but these are the few I took (she had a fever at the time poor baby, but she's a tough cookie)
I love those pictures that have the dramatic lighting, where the shadows are hugging the face just so, and its just perfect, I love that, and hope to master it one day.This picture below is an attempt. Practice, practice, practice.
Even with a fever, she's still a goofball. heheSunday Snapshot, Simple Things, P52
