Happiness for me is trying something new and one of the absolute best things about last weekend was taking the amazing @kdokoza creative light class. I was pushed out of my comfort zone, tried out my new portrait lens and got the chance to photograph two gorgeous and utterly lovely young ladies, this is one of them! #clickawayconference #kirstyhamiltonphotography #londonportraitphotography #londonportraitphotographer #letthekids #clickinmoms #clickmagazine #dearphotographer #cameramama #instalikealadyboss #follow_this_light #galleryoflight #the_mindful_approach #galleryoflightfeature

You know what’s the best? When you’re apart of this community of photographers who are not only amazing photographers and moms, but good people who support and uplift. I’ve been so fortunate to curate relationships with these ladies and am incredibly honored to share their work on today’s #followfriday! If you’re not following them already - GO! Their feeds are just as gorgeous as this grid! ❤️❤️❤️ @marisa.kraft @emily.ockwig @mytwofigs @thesouthernnorthphotography @azuremahara @alindsayphotos

This boy wears his rain boots everywhere...even on the potty. Apparently he’s already mastering the art of multitasking too. 😂

Dalam doaku subuh ini kau menjelma langit yang semalaman tak memejamkan mata, yang meluas bening siap menerima cahaya pertama, yang melengkung hening karena akan menerima suara-suara Ketika matahari mengambang tenang di atas kepala, dalam doaku kau menjelma pucuk-pucuk cemara yang hijau senantiasa, yang tak henti-hentinya mengajukan pertanyaan muskil kepada angin yang mendesau entah dari mana Dalam doaku sore ini kau menjelma seekor burung gereja yang mengibas-ibaskan bulunya dalam gerimis, yang hinggap di ranting dan menggugurkan bulu-bulu bunga jambu, yang tiba-tiba gelisah dan terbang lalu hinggap di dahan mangga itu Maghrib ini dalam doaku kau menjelma angin yang turun sangat perlahan dari nun di sana, bersijingkat di jalan dan menyentuh-nyentuhkan pipi dan bibirnya di rambut, dahi, dan bulu-bulu mataku Dalam doa malamku kau menjelma denyut jantungku, yang dengan sabar bersitahan terhadap rasa sakit yang entah batasnya, yang setia mengusut rahasia demi rahasia, yang tak putus-putusnya bernyanyi bagi kehidupanku Aku mencintaimu. Itu sebabnya aku takkan pernah selesai mendoakan keselamatanmu Dalam Doaku - Sapardi Djoko Damono (1989) #galleryoflight #capturestreet #streetgrammer #spicollective #hikari #hikaricreative #mecca #makkah #kabah

One of my favorite things is when I go through files from six months ago and find little weird gems like this image. Makes me excited for swimming pools and sunshine in just a few months 🏊‍♂️ ☀️ instead of this cold, rainy gray. #cm_prep

My golden boy, ok ok my only boy, but at his best when his focus is 100% on his game.. football, football, football... (not being tricksy with his sisters), and I love the winter light. #cm_athletes, #candidchildhood, #enchantedchildhood,#dearphotographer,#galleryoflight

I love this image with the clasped hands, beautiful bright red pattern, and the shadows. And the off-center composition is just so good.

Sharing is hard. I mean, I like sharing my photos, because I think I take nice pictures and I like showing that skill off. But sharing my thoughts, my experiences, my heart? That's terrifying. I struggle to feel like I have anything worth saying. I don't know a lot of things, and I don't feel like I'm learning things either. I'm just in this place of treading water, trying not to drown, trying to figure out how to be an adult, a mother, a wife, a friend... and feeling like I'm failing at all of it, most days. I see people all around who look like they've got it together - and I know we don't see anyone's full picture, that we're all our own different kind of hot mess - but some people seem so much prettier, more more sure of themselves, more aware, more confident and tidy hot messes than, say, me. 😉 I keep getting stuck in this place of stagnation, so frazzled by everything that I become paralyzed, unable to accomplish anything. Because I want to do all the things, but I literally can't. I try to just focus on a few things, but even then I let so much fall through the cracks, and every day feels the same, while I'm not growing or changing. I know I'm probably not alone in this, but sometimes I feel like I must be the biggest mess of all. And now I'm rambling, which kinda proves my point, I think. I want to be a person who has important, helpful things to say. I want to build, lift, and encourage, but how can I when I feel like I have nothing helpful to say... (unless you're really interested in completely halting your growth, of course, because I'm basically a pro at that). A lot of times that is what ends up stopping me from sharing anything, because I feel like each photo I share needs some kind of inspiring, motivational caption, and I rarely have anything like that to say. Ugh. It's just hard. . . . . . . #playingwithlight #inthelight #playingwithshadows #galleryoflight #galleryoflightfeature #lace #patterns #creativephotography #momof6 #feelingstuck #getin52 #getintheframe #sel#selfportraiture #selfie #selfportrait #creativeselfportrait #whoami #deepthinker #can#canonphotographer #dslrphotography #canon #rebelsl1 #snapseed

Took these at sunrise on 2.11.18. Exactly one year before that - on 2.11.17 - and for the first time in almost 5yrs, I woke up without a migraine. The Never-Ending Migraine finally ended!

{90/365}....Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since I’ve posted here! Things have been busy - between focusing on my business, attending #clickaway2018 and the flu spreading through our family, it’s been pretty chaotic. I’ve also been in a rut, not happy with my personal work lately. Being stuck inside for weeks with sick kids isn’t helping! I can’t wait to get outside again. Maybe that’ll spark up some inspiration 🤔 . . . . . . . . #mytinymoments #momswithcameras #momlife #our_everyday_moments #ourcandidlife #pocket_bnw #bnwmood #bnw_magic #bnw_kids #thehonestlens #thegallerycollective #thesincerestoryteller #theportraitcollective #soulfocusinspired #365pfister #magicofchildhood #parenthoodunplugged #unitedinmotherhood

Birgu is the perfect set for streetphotography. Ovunque ti giri, a Birgu, c'è qualcosa da fotografare. I balconi che irrompono sule strade strette, la luce che scende dall'alto a bagnare tutto, i passanti che si fermano a parlare tra loro o si chiamano dalle finestre. Tutto questo è Birgu. ------- #malta #visitmalta #igersmalta #hiddenmalta #maltalovers #lovinmalta #unlimitedmalta #maltatoday #mymalta #maltagram #lovemalta #maltaphotography #agameoftones #exploretocreate #maltatravel #rebeltravelers #maltacharm #cntraveler #neverstopexploring #earthfocus #passionpassport #huntgram #guardiantravelsnaps #mytinyatlas #huffpostgram #bestcitybreaks #living_europe #tv_hiddenbeauty #map_of_europe #tv_global
