Light Scout Creative

And God said, "Let there be light. And God saw that the light was good." - Genesis 1 :3&4

Light is life. It is here now...the present...this moment. Light penetrates hearts. We crave it. We bask in it. We are wired to wake up because of it. We eat and breath because of it. 

When it's dark we look for it. We create our own light to avoid the darkness. In the night, we wait for morning; when it arrives we are thankful. Light wakes us up. It pulls us out of our homes. It makes us playful. Light gives warmth. Light gives sight and light gives life.

I look for light everyday. I love how it wraps around trees, mountains, hills, and people. I love how it penetrates water and pours through windows. I love that people smile in the sunshine. 

I have come to the realization that I take photographs because I love to find light. I am drawn to it. I am a light scout. I am a creative. I am a Light Scout Creative, and I give thanks to One that said, "Let there be light." 

This beautiful family is awesome. We took a break to let kids be kids.

This reminds me that in every moment we leave something behind. Let's make it good.

Find the Magic

I had an amazing day in Morro Bay photographing this wonderful family.  We hiked, played, explored, and just enjoyed the light. I love days like this.

Photography with kids needs to be fun. Everything is a game for a child - exploring, touching, listening, looking, etc. A child engages almost all of their senses.

As adults, we have touched dirt or grass so many times it has lost it's magic. A child touches dirt with a sense of wonder; dirt does stuff. It sticks to things (faces), it changes color, it is smooth or rough, it blows away in the wind, grass and trees grow out of it, houses are built on it, animals live under it, bugs and toy trucks move on it! It is magic.

With this little guy, the photography happened between the fun. When this family looks at these photos years from now, they will remember him as he was - a playful, inquisitive, active little guy. As their photographer, I want to give them real photos that will bring back amazing memories and the magic.   

Thank you to this family for letting me do what I love.
