I Heart Faces ~ Beautiful Black & White

Seek the wisdom of the ages,
but look at the world through the eyes of a child.  ~Ron Wild

This week’s photo challenge at I Heart Faces is “Beautiful Black and White”.  I decided to enter this image I captured of little Miss Natalie.  I’ve known Miss Natalie for many years and I have always admired how her big brown eyes just smile when she looks at you. She has a way of instantly warming your heart with her look of young and innocent.

Do you love to photograph?  Do you love to look at beautiful faces?  Then come on over to i heart faces and get inspired by all this week’s entries!  Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter!  Smiles and Blessings, Catherine

Ellington High School Senior ~ Dayna

Dayna is a wonderful young lady I had the pleasure of photographing for her high school senior photos.   These were taken late last fall but I thought I’d share some of them with you today.  I truly enjoy doing senior high school sessions because I love to talk with the students and hear all about their high school days…their future dreams…their passions and goals.  I would like to share with you a few things Dayna shared with me.  Her best friend Heather and her have been friends since pre school.  She told me the first thing people notice about her is that she is short and always smiling.  She never appeared short to me and with a smile like hers why not always be smiling.  Her dream car is a Jeep Sport Wrangler and she has the most passion for people.  Spending time with family and friends is what she loves to do most on weekends and she plans on attending college.  I wish you the very best Dayna and may all your dreams come true.

Catherine, beautiful photos, beautiful lady.

What an Honor.

What an honor it was to be the Photographer of the week on Ellenburg Photography’s blog.  Daphne of Ellenburg Photography has decided to put the spot light each week on one of the photographers participating in Project 52.  Quite to my surprise it was me this week.  Please take a moment and head on over to the blog to see what Ellenburg Photography has to say about me…little ol me and take a look at the top ten photos of the week.  Thanks Daphne for such an honor and all the kinds words you had to say.  You truly warmed my heart and put a smile on my face.  I’m so glad to be part of this very talented group of photographers and this project has pushed each one of us to think outside the box and get creative.  I’m glad to be part of the team and thanks for all you do!

A photo I hope will put a smile on your face.  A little Irish snowman Michael and I decided to make yesterday afternoon.  Hat’s off to ya…May the luck of the Irish be with you!  Enjoy your weekend!
