I Heart Faces - "Best Face Photo From 2011"

January 9, 2012

A smile that lights up the room BLOG

I took this photo of Sarah this summer as the girls were playing outside on the back porch.
It is by far my favorite close up face photo of her and it just might be one of the best close up shots I have ever taken.
The unusual crop speaks to me as does the hair framing her face.....
and that smile....well, it just lights up the room!!

I adore this shot- probably even more so now than when I first saw it months ago. It really is so beautiful & certainly one I think about when I am composing & processing photos of my own girls. Definitely one that has set the standard in my head of where I want to be one day.

Absolutely beautiful! I love the fresh simpleness of this photo! Sometimes you just look at your children and get lost in their face and wish that you could just sit and stare forever and never forget how they look at that moment. This is one of those moments captured. What a treasure worth far more than gold!
