So I've turned this post into a blog for those of you who want to see this entire shoot with three little monkeys!
The top image is the one I'm referring to in this post, but here is the gallery of images from this shoot as well. Oh, and the post from FB/Insta!
Disclaimer: this is going to be a book of a post. This has to be my favorite image I have ever taken. My dad inherited this bike that was my grandpa’s about 10 years ago and had it restored. Christmas 2016 my brother and I cooked up this idea of photographing our kids on the bike as a gift to my dad. I had this big idea in my head of what I wanted this image to look like, and NOTHING turned out like what I had in mind. I actually wasn’t convinced I got a SINGLE decent image out of the chaos that was this shoot. At the time the photographer in me saw all the flaws and the imperfections in this image that didn’t line up with what I had in my head. Flash forward almost a year and a half later, every time I walk past this image I stop and stare at it. It’s beautiful. I view this image perfectly. May seem odd to you but it gave me a good perspective on how Christ sees us. As messy, chaotic and undeserving as I am- he still sees me perfectly. How amazing is that? The prayer on my heart is that I can learn to see others as Christ does. And if you made it to the end of this, I told ya it was going to be a book! There were a couple of ways I could have gone with this bit this was was heaviest on my heart!
