A Photo a Week Challenge: Tender Moments

private_moment_nmp

Our lives are made up of moments. Some are very public and some are very private. As a professional photographer, I’m frequently invited to share very private moments with people, especially couples. At our niece’s wedding this weekend, I didn’t take pictures at the ceremony or reception, but the couple asked me to take pictures at the luncheon between the two big events. It was a lot of fun, and they are adorable together, how could I resist grabbing this tender moment as they took a minute to sit and just be together.

(P.S. I did this same challenge almost two years ago with a picture of the bride’s parents. Seems to be a theme with my sister and her family.)

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF SWEET, TENDER, PERSONAL MOMENTS.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Vibrant

While we were in Hawaii in May, I loved the beautiful, vibrant colors everywhere we went. At the Polynesian Culture Center on Oahu, we saw so many different colors, textures, and styles it was a little overwhelming. The world is full of vibrance: color, personality, landscape. The possibilities are endless.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE VIBRANT.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
