It used to be that when the sun shone, we would run outside to spend the day in its light. Sunshine is a precious commodity that shouldn't be wasted.
Recently, sun means doing a flurry of product shots for myself and clients. Tis the season of stress and busyness, hey? Combine that with very little sleep and it would be fair to say that I have not been in the most pleasant mood today.
And then I found this. She'd fallen asleep on my bed, wearing glasses. And I stopped and caught my breath and then ran as fast as I could to get my camera. I love photography, I love doing commercial and product work, but this, this is why I love my camera. This is why we run Capturing Childhood. For exactly these precious, amazing and every day moments.
PS - And did you know that Capturing Childhood is in the Guardian Gift Guide? Oh yes (under gadgets)!!
PPS - G's sweater is from Tootsa Macginty - also in the guide!
