Little Things Thursday

OK, this week is turning out to be an absolute blur! Summer totally stepped on the gas peddle and is flying by. I almost missed this Little Things Thursday because of not knowing what day it is!

My family decided to hit the local water park today to squeeze in that item on our summer bucket list.  So, we will be out splashing and sliding today! It’s a needed break from being glued to my computer.

I’ve been editing hours per day to catch up on summer sessions, but I love providing happiness and memories for others.  This is one from my last session that I adore.

Johnson 01-LTT-BlogTo me, this feels like life in these young family years. And, it is perfect! How’s your week going? Let’s see what life feels like in your part of the world!

Dance With Me

Dance with me, I want to be your partner

Can’t you see the music is just starting

Dance with me

Night is falling, and I am falling
Dance withe me

Sunday I had the honor of photographing this 30 year strong couple. They truly are the happiest, most loving people I know.

They are the definition of blessed.

One of their passions in their semi-empty nest years is ballroom dancing.  I asked them to give me a little demonstration of their favorite moves while standing in this field.

They more than happily obliged me.

Little Things Thursday| The Happy Birthday Edition

My baby turns 8 today! Just one more year before we are halfway there with him. But, I can’t go there yet.  Jasper has been such a joy to our family.

He is our blue-steely-grey eyed boy with blond locks. Quite the opposite of all of us in terms of genetic features. His eyes are like blue jasper and I marvel at how God ordained that little detail so perfectly.We are thankful for his spunk, humor, generous spirit, mathematician brain, and fierce warrior spirit on the soccer field. At the same time he is equally tender, easily wounded, and prefers to fade into the background just like his mama. He has to muster the courage to put himself out there, but he does little by little.  He is perennially called Jabber by all who love him. He is a perfectly made peanut with a big spirit. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Little Things Thursday

Welcome to Little Things Thursday! Today, I’m sharing a little BIG thing.  I don’t do weddings often, but when I do there is always something special about it that leads me to say yes.  It’s usually a personal connection.  This wedding was one I could not turn down.  I won’t share all the personal details, but this wedding was definitely a GOD story.

The Bride and Groom chose a quite spot by an old mill to exchange their vows. The ceremony was the two of them, the minister, and me as photographer. Except, there were a couple people fishing across the stream who gave a loud cheer when it was time to kiss the bride. It was adorable! This day was perfectly perfect.

I’m so honored to have documented the joining of these two in Holy Matrimony.

More shares will be coming soon on my business site next week!

How’s your week?

Analogue

Come on let’s take a picture

The kind you gotta shake

Spring 2015

Ok, so I didn’t shake it. But it was developed the old fashioned way.

Nothing automatic about this. No instant gratification.

I’m falling in love with all things analogue.  I don’t throw out my technology with the development bath water, but there is something about doing things old school that makes me feel more connected to what I’m doing.  No matter what I’m doing.

Learning to wait and anticipate is a beautiful thing.

Little Things Thursday

I’ve been waiting for these scans since late March.  First, I had to finish the roll, send them in to The Find Lab, and then wait for the scans.  I admit that it is hard to wait on results.  The upside is that scan day is a bit like Christmas Day every single time.  There are always those shots that are the things on your Christmas list and shots that are like socks and underwear under the tree. Both make up the whole Christmas package.

The keepers, though…worth it!

Cherry Blossoms

I adore cherry blossom season and sadly those brief days have already come to an end here in Georgia. It’s like a small miracle every spring! The Miracle we are waiting for.  I sure was thankful that I found this little gem on my latest roll of film!

Little Things Thursday

Good Morning Little Things Thursday Friends!  I’m sharing another sneak peek from my recent Newsies inspired session with Aidan and our neighbor.  I’m almost through this session, but had a few things come up this week that have kept me from being able to complete the set.  One of those things being strep throat hitting our house. Sickness always trumps routine, but I think we have a handle on it.  At least we are well-equipped with prescriptions if the strep starts to spread.

But anyhoo…I really enjoyed this session with these two chaps.  They were just the right age to ham it up. Not a self-conscious bone in either one.

Newsies

I have two film rolls currently in development and I am eager to get those back. I’ll be sharing those soon of anything comes out of those rolls.

Meanwhile, let’s see what you’ve been shooting!

Newsies

I have been making a conscious effort to get my middle child in front of my lens.  He has always sort of run from the camera because he had better things to do than pose.  Most of my images of him are candid, but I really wanted some wall art of him to go along with what I have of the others.  His face reminds me a bit of the typical street urchin from various movies so I decided to do a Newsies session with him.  My neighbor just so happens to be the very talented photographer, Sasha Holloway.  She let me bring her son along as a second Newsie.  These two kids play together and are photographers kids so they were going to know the drill pretty well.

Newsies

I’m just at the tip of the editing iceberg, but I do have a little sneak of their session. They were total naturals.  I’ll have more to share soon on my Facebook page Kim Cunningham Photography and my business website.

This was such a fun little session!
