A good friend of mine was planning a celebration for her in-laws wedding anniversary and needed a photographer. So, I offered to photograph the celebration.
During the celebration I was nervous. I was not feeling inspired. I was not capturing the images I wanted. I felt like surrendering. Then, towards the end of the celebration something happened.
My friend's precious little boy was waking up from a nap. As soon as he stood up in a daze, I snapped the photo below. It took just one second. This one second and this one moment, though, meant a revived level of hope.
Taken a little over three years ago, I am still drawn to this photo.
