Never before have I had such a fantastic recommendation for you. Treat yourself and take a minute to watch the video below– you will cry.
and the link.
I spent 20 minute on the skin tones and then decided b&w might be better. What do you think?
the little girls patiently waiting- quite fittingly they are reading a fairy book
Keep the color! The skin tones are luminous!
You were right that did make me cry. Do you have a link? I would like to put that on my Blog. I am not sure how to do that without a link.
Your talent is inspiring. Thank you for posting those words by Pres. Uchtdorf- what a tremendous reminder for us husbands of wonderful daughters of God.
I added the link just below the video. Glad you liked it!
Oh friend…that was just fabulous! I needed to watch that tonight. And see those pictures. Thank you.
Beautiful portraits. I’m glad you found the create video, weren’t you doubting your talent recently? Absolutely no reason to! Absolutely none!!
Thank you for posting this. I loved the video and your photos heightened the whole feeling.
These are all so lovely! I like the skin tones, the glow seems to warm my whole office.
These photos give me the yearning for another baby…which means you are very talented.
I’ve had a great fall, Christmas and winter and I have been trying to figure out why. Many things have been falling into place for me but I think the catalyst was Elder Uchtdorf’s talk. I thought I was too busy to be creative. Now I realize that all my creative nonsense is an essential part of my spiritual health. Thanks for the video. Ruth
Loved the video and of course, your photos. I showed your blog to my sisters while in AZ last week and they all want to come to Utah so you can photograph their families. 🙂
And the video…love it. I read that talk again and found more for my soul.
Michelle, you are amazing.
Oh, and just a little chuckle going on over here . . . I love the half-dressed newborn. After a couple of pics, the Wordsworth (I think) quote, “not in utter nakedness” came to mind and made me smile.
Wordsworth or not, “trailing clouds of glory” certainly fits the mood of those incredible pictures.
Thank you so much for posting this video 4 years ago! Who’d have thought that a pre-college student would hear this marvelous advice, and be reminded that it’s okay if she doesn’t end up in a high-paying job. Education is good–and when you add creation into the equation, it’s so much better!
