Completely Candid

I heart faces theme is “completely candid” this week. I don’t know how great of a picture this is compositionally (is that a word?), but I think it’s pretty cute. I was experimenting with my camera trying to stop action. I love that Ava has a big ‘ol smile on her face. She usually does when she’s doing one of her favorite things in the whole world- swinging. She loved her baby swing when she was a tiny, and she still loves to swing. I have to give her orders when we go to the park that she can swing, but she also has to do some running around and other things too. (I mean, really, why does one go to the park in the first place but to wear out their children? Or is that just me?):)

Anyway, here is Ava completely candid swinging at the park a couple of weeks ago.


Tell me what you think or what I should do better. You can also check out the other entries at I heart faces.

    I love how big that smile is…makes me smile too. BTW, capturing kids on a swing in motion…not easy. I’ve yet to get a good shot with that. I think you captured it beautifully.

    I enjoyed the bokeh as well. I love the picture as a whole though – it really captures her love of the swing.

    Wow, this is very good. I don’t think I would have been that good with the timing of the swing. I looks perfect!

    Your photography is looking great, but your subject (my Niece) is the greatest.
