I love being spontaenous with my camera.  These photos were taken at my friend Jen’s beautiful home near Mount Beauty, while Sophia was outside playing with her daughter.  We’d just arrived back from a wonderful day in Bright, and the sun was going down.  At the last minute, I grabbed my camera, and snapped a few very quick shots.  And I adore them.  They are so very ‘Sophia’ – the everyday Sophia that I see, the one in my mind when she’s not here, the one in my heart that fills it to bursting.  No styling, no planning, just being.


I was playing this song today (Sun and Moon, Alain Boublil and Richard Maltby, Jr.) as I finished my editing ~

You are sunlight and I moon
Joined by the gods of fortune
Midnight and high noon
Sharing the sky
We have been blessed, you and I.

And we have been.

    Thanks so much Jane, Lisa, Jen and Mish! I’m very much in love with these shots – especially the first one. We had a lovely time on our mini-break. xo
