Beautiful Eyes : I Heart Faces {Challenge}

This post is an entry into the I Heart Faces weekly photo challenge.  The theme is “Beautiful Eyes”.   I had a couple of photos that came to mind but this 9 month old’s eyes won me over. I love how big her eyes are and how you can almost make out the reflection of the grass, trees and sky from the park that day (click on photo to enlarge image).

i ♥ photography: Mila’s daydreams

I’ve come across a number of things in the past and even more so most recently of why I LOVE photography SO MUCH and so I thought i’d share these under “i ♥ photography”…basically a why I love photography series.

So here’s one for you…

Photography has nothing to do with the type of camera you have and having all the latest gadgets that we think are must haves to take a great photo; rather, it’s all about the person that’s looking through the lens and how they see the world.  A perfect example of this is from the creator of  Mila’s Daydreams.  If you’ve never heard of Mila, you’re in for a real treat.  Mila’s mom (Adele Enersen) is currently a stay-at-home mom (on maternity leave) who wondered what her daughter’s dreams must be like.  And unlike many of us well-thinkers, she began creating actual scenes she imagines her daughter must be dreaming and photographs her daughter in these dreamscapes.  It’s amazing, beautiful and creative! As a mom, I love everything about it! And an added plus,  she only uses her small, compact digital camera (Canon IXUS 750) in her photos.  So like I said, you don’t need that thousand dollar camera to take great pictures.   Here are two of my favorites…

It’s one of those things that you say to yourself…”Why didn’t I think of that!?” You can click on Mila’s Daydreams to be directed to her blog.

I am inspired and encouraged as a mom and photographer! Thanks Adele for inspiring us to dream! =)
