Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween filled with lots of fun and treats!!
This year was a little different for us. One of my daughters and some of her friends decided to make their own costumes. They got the idea from Pinterest. (I would link to the original, but I wasn’t the one that found it so I don’t have it.) The girls all came to my house with their shirts, paints, and whatever else they needed. They sprawled out in my driveway and went to town. There was lots of smiles and giggles and a few “oops” along the way, but the final result was awesome!! My daughter said she wants to make her costume from now on. Sounds good to me!! Hope you enjoy!!
So, I’ve been on a bit of a quest lately to find out my style of photography. What I’m realizing is I LOVE to capture “real” moments, hence the name Captured Moments by Mel. It’s been right in front of me the whole time. So as I was doing what another photographer, Brooke Snow, suggested, I went looking back through my photos. These beach photos jumped out at me. We went the weekend before school started (this was the first and only time all summer). I asked myself what it was I liked most about these. I had captured the girls enjoying themselves at the beach. “Real” moments with genuine emotion.
Some of these I used both actions and textures, and some I used only actions. I’ll list where both came from at the bottom of this post.
