Thinking Like a Photographer


I've said many times that I don't have a lot of interest in the nitty gritty details of photography. I just want cool shots of my life. 

As I watched my girls play together yesterday, a thought popped into my head. That would make a great black and white photo. 

BabyM was sitting next to Big Sister T and both were looking out a low window. T was hugging her baby sister so gently, my heart sang with joy. This is what I imagined when I found out last year we were having another girl. Sisters.

I often wondered how our excellent family photographer Kristi knew which shots to convert to black and white. I thought it was some magic photographer secret that I would never understand. I still don't, but apparently, sometimes you just know.
