What is Simple things Sunday

Back in 2010 I was in the thick of mothering 4 young children ages 8 months to 8 years. I found myself struggling to find joy amidst the dirty diapers and other daily challenges that life with little ones brings. I wanted to treasure the details that made this stage in my life beautiful and unique, but some days it could be so hard. As a photographer, I did the only thing I knew how to do. I grabbed my camera and I began to search. As I sought out photo opportunities in my regular day, I began to see my life in a different light, and I gained a deeper sense of appreciation for the seemingly mundane. When viewed through my lens, the simplest moment could be transformed into a magical image that took my breath away. Seeking out these simple moments each week helped me as a mother to find more patience and be more aware of the blessings that surround me.


Sharing your Simple things Photos With Us:

Simple things Sunday is about slowing down and capturing life’s everyday details. Taking joy in the simple things is the focus and Sunday is the day we get together to reflect on our experiences from the week and share our photos with each other. You can share by linking up on mine or Stacy’s blogs, you can share on Instagram using the #simplethingssunday hashtag. You can even stop by the Simple as That or Kids Stuff World Facebook pages to share your photos with us! Whatever works best for you, works for us!

We want Simple things Sunday To Be:

A simple and easy way to share your favourite photos with others on a weekly basis

A place to find inspiration in photographing real life moments

A community of friends that gather together to share, encourage and uplift each other through a common love of photography

A collection of beautiful and inspiring photos

A way to encourage eachother to look for joy in each day and celebrate the simple moments in life

I’m so happy to be back on this journey to capturing the simple things in 2014 and I invite you to join us, it’s going to be amazing! #SimpleThingsSunday

    I’m look forward to being a part of this! I discovered your instagram group and have already been participating in that, but it will be fun to do some more “professional” simple Sunday photos with my Nikon versus my iPhone :).
