The Bethadilly 52 Week 2 – Candid

of all the types of photography that i like, i am emotionally drawn to candid photography.  there is something about a candid photo that holds so much emotion and honesty.  candid photos hold everything that is true and i love capturing honesty.  for week 2 of the bethadilly 52, our prompt was candid and i felt encouraged to not only photograph a candid moment, but one of my daughter and i.  i wanted to create a photo that documents the relationship between mother and daughter, encouraging me to think about some of the most honest moments my baby girl and i share.

in the mornings, before we start our day, i get her from her crib and pull her into bed with me so we can cuddle and be cozy before the busyness of the day unfolds.  it’s in those moments that i put my forehead to hers, talk about everything from what we will do that day to reminding her how much i love her.  it’s just a true moment that i wanted to photograph, to show her when she is older.  i love everything that this photo holds and am so happy i photographed this for week 2.

to join in on the bethadilly 52, where we take one photo a week using the hashtag #thebethadilly52 on instagram, check out the prompt list.
