I've picked up the camera again and it felt right.

I haven't been picking up my camera much these days.  A few times here or a little there, but I've been really convicted in my art.  I was tired of mimicking.  Tired of hearing my husband point out how my photos haven't been popping like they used to (its true, and he said it out of love, just throwing that out there).  I kept needing to push myself beyond the "smile-snap-burn" that I had become.  And maybe that will be all that I'll be when it comes to portraits.  Maybe.  And maybe that is why I fell for wedding photography for the story telling.  Letting the natural happen and capture the story.  

But this recent session had me screaming every time it happened.  You know.  That moment when they happened to be in just the right light with just the emotions and I was on it enough to click it at the right time.  Yes, I oohed and awed out loud making this beautiful couple hysterical at my antics.
