this week has been full of some unexpected surprises and encouraging moments that have left my heart full.
like taking a some quick photos after a warm afternoon walk at the park.
i had been wanting to shoot some outside photos with the kids for awhile,
and instead of trying to "schedule" time with clothes,
accessories and props like i had been wanting to do
(probably from seeing too many photo blogs and pinterest ideas),
things fell together on their own.
to me the moments i captured are perfect -
even though they are not the "perfection" i was planning in my mind.
i think i am finally learning the joy of contentment,
and letting go of comparison and expectations that often leave me feeling less than happy.
what a waste of my time.
here are a couple of the pictures i shot on monday afternoon.
they are like sunshine to me.
wishing you a happy weekend!
