This week’s word is “inspiration.”
My kids inspire me to be a better person, a better mom, a better role model. It’s hard to remember any decision I have made in the past 9 years that didn’t take them into account. Oh yeah, that’s because there aren’t any. They are in my every thought. Through their own unique personalities and behaviors, my kids inspire me in different ways. My son inspires me to be silly, to be more loving, to forgive. My daughter inspires me to be creative, to think about the needs of others, and to take time to relax.
In keeping with my resolution of trying to use available light, I did not use flash here. I shot this in a challenging lighting situation – dark outside, just an overhead hallway light. I think processing via the CM FIlm Art Presets helped make it look a little more artsy, even with the awkward lighting.
