Simple things Sunday – Taking a Rest

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 gather together to reflect on our experiences from the week and share our photos with each other. #SimpleThingsSunday

Sharing another quick photo from our magical trip to Disneyland. I haven’t taken the camera out much this week. With all the photos I took on our trip last week we all needed a little rest from the pictures. Taking a break is never a bad thing. Stepping away from the camera for a few days, or a week or more is OK. After I take a little break from taking photos I always come back refreshed, with a new perspective, ready to photograph life’s details again. The break is not only good for me, but for my kids too! I take a lot of pictures and if not careful, they can get sick of my camera in their face. Typically after an outing where I’ve taken a lot of photos, these little breaks are just what we all need. Just as I encourage you to capture life’s simple moments, I’d also invite you to put that camera away once in a while. Forget about the missed moments — because there will be more tomorrow. Embrace making the memories and take a rest from recording them once in a while.

    What a gorgeous picture this is, the wonder in your girls faces is priceless. I’m so glad you had a wonderful break away. And thanks for the encouragement to step back a little, sometimes it’s so good to hear someone else you know and admire photographically to say ‘take a break’! Thanks Rebecca!

    Gorgeous photo and great reminder! I would SO love to take your class but it’s not in my budget right now. Another time. A question about this photo – do you say to your girls “smile and look up at Tinkerbell!”? or did you just happen to catch them?

    So adorable! Makes me want to take your class to take amazing pictures like this. Did you take your big camera to Disneyland or is this an actual iphone photo? I’m glad you all had fun…your girls look like the perfect age for Disney magic.
