Cultivating Hope

Standard

Isn’t summer all about slowing down, plucking dandelions, and then blowing and cultivating hope all over the place?

To get this shot, I really wanted a close up of squishy fingers holding a dandelion with an eager mouth ready to blow. The first images came out darker. Noticing that she was intent on blowing and not moving, I slowed down the shutter speed to get more light. I also wanted to capture as much light (sun was rapidly setting!) and have a soft blurry feel (bokeh) so kept it at f/1.8.

About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
