Windy December Day

December 23, 2013  •  2 Comments

During the cold season, it is normal I guess that I'm not taking as many pictures. And with the start of my new art studio business, I really have not been picking up my camera. All my time has been consumed with getting back to my original love of studio arts. But oh how I love photography as well and when we recently had a few unusually warm spring-like days I asked Ella if she'd like to go out for a walk behind our house. I said I would bring my camera and of course that got her racing for her shoes. Just like a good little model, she is.

Christmas is racing closer to us by the minute and I just don't feel ready, I never feel ready. My kids actually feel the same. I think they like the anticipation of Christmas and once it comes, then its gone. So we planned a special ski trip this year to break up the long couple of weeks ahead. The thought of clicking into my ski bindings has me giddy since we didn't make it to the slopes the last two winters. But, the warm air and two days of rain melted our snow and the skier in me pouted out loud for anyone to hear. "Ohio drives me nuts!" Its winter! Its supposed to be cold!

Once the rain stopped, the warm air did feel really wonderful and Ella and I took advantage of the break in the clouds. I love connecting with her like this, time slows down and I put all of my attention on her, admiring her beauty and spirit as I play with different angles of capturing her in nature. She soaks it all in. Our windy walk has blessed me with some gorgeous images of her, here are some favorites.

Ella is so your daughter! She has your smile, your spirit and your sense of adventure. Beautiful pictures Jess, as always.

Beautiful. You capture your thoughts with the camera with so much ease. I love looking at your work. And of course my granddaughter. The photos of her warm my heart.
