Remember how just last week I said something about a prompt being easier than I imagined it would be? I’m taking a different tune this week. Peaceful is NOT my favorite prompt! That may be the case, because life is a little hectic around here. Good hectic, but generally not peaceful. It’s not like I didn’t try. I meant to take a great picture of the Raleigh, NC LDS temple, as it is one place I can always find peace. Even though I was there twice this week, I managed to be there without a camera every time. When time began to run short, I took a picture of a sleeping child – FAIL. I even took a couple shots of the driver seat of my car. CONFESSION – I sometimes sit in the car in my garage after arriving home from somewhere else, just so I can have a moment and take a breath before I head into the house.
In the end, this is what I chose. My home may not be serene, but I love looking at my house from across the street. I always think, “I love my home.” I love it, because I love my family and my home is a safe place for us to be together. A close second to the temple.
This boy looks so peaceful in this picture! I love that Kesti got her sweet, 6 year old baby scattering dandelion dust. These are the times favorite childhood memories are made.
Richard not only snapped a photo of an adorable little girl holding her daddy’s hand (could anything be sweeter?!), but he braved the beautiful backlighting of which I am so petrified. As a parent the sweet little hand in a parents reminds me of those moments when trusting little fingers grab mine. Shannon really wanted to capture the way her and her son hold hands when they cuddle on the couch. She didn’t have time to grab it with their hectic schedule but is planning to soon.
Shannon ended up going with this dreamy image from a family session this week. Does this just make you dream of your own childhood explorations?!!?!
