Fifty-Two on Friday [3] Joy

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” ~ Marianne Williamson

If you have been following me this month, you know that Friday is a fun day!! I’m doing challenges with 19 other AMAZING photographers and you can see our first assignment here (self-portrait) and our second assignment here (black and white). The theme for this week was joy. Though I pondered to think out of the box and be creative, it simply could not be done.  Joy = My Kids. Plain and simple. Since my older two were at school, my baby ended up modeling for me. We went to a field in Grover Beach and I just let her run around and play. This girl loves to pretend. She’s a dancer on most days, but sometimes she’s a violinist, sometimes she’s a chef, and on this particular day she was a bird. She was “flying” through the grass without a care in the world.  I think this photo will bring me joy for the rest of my life.  Now, head on over to Maureen Wilson | Mccomb Mississippi photographer to see what brings her joy!!
