Photo Friday: follow your bliss

Today I’m participating in Liv Lane’s Follow Your Bliss bloghop.  Liv writes, “Every Friday, I will share a list of the bliss in my midst, reflecting on moments over the past week where I’ve caught myself in a sense of wonder, contentment, and true joy. It’s like a gratitude list, but rather than just being thankful for the things I have…I want to be thankful for the way I feel – even if it’s fleeting – and celebrate whatever brought me to that bliss.”  Feel free to join us!

Here’s where I found bliss this past week:

I just loved watching my daughter wear her new rain boots and splash around in the puddles of a recent storm… 

I stayed up way too late reading because I just loved this story… 

I had such fun photographing a one-year-old’s first birthday (see more here), kneeling and smilng and just soaking in all the joy and sweetness…

It was fun to see what creative clothing combinations my daughter would come up with… 

I designed and printed CD case papers for my photography clients (feedback welcome)…

I have loved learning from Build a Blog You Truly Love and meeting new friends and following new blogs…

Happy weekend everyone!

P.S. I just saw this on a Shutter Sisters post and love it enough to share with you:

“Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”

Henri Cartier Bresson

  1. Hi Naomi, I’m jealous you are reading a BOOK!! I really need to start taking one to bed with me but I just want to sleep. I think an earlier bedtime would help me out here! LOVE the birthday photos. That tutu looks so sweet on your little girl. My youngest is now 17mths and I feel like it has gone really fast. Keep capturing those memories, you take such beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing, Belinda

    • Thanks, Belinda. I know the feeling of no time. I only read at night too… Last night til 1 am and boy did I regret that today. I’ll look at your blog after my daughter’s bedtime. 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
