Naturally Beautiful


This week's I <3 Faces theme is natural light. All photos have to have been taken with no flash.
I rarely use a flash these days because I LOVE the look of the shots I get with natural light.

This week my kids entry is my sweet nephew and his beautiful mommy, my sister Lisa. Last week was Lisa's birthday and in true servant fashion, because that is who she is through and through, she spent her birthday in Nicaragua with her husband and two boys, visiting missionaries to encourage and support them.
I could look at my sweet nephew's face all day long. Those deep, chocolate eyes and soft face suck me in every time.



My adult entry for this week is my cousin and her fiance. They will be getting married in June and I had the pleasure of taking their engagement pictures awhile back. What a fun day that was!


For more entries in this week's contest go here and see the amazing talent that is represented on this great site!

Both are great shots. Nothing better than a baby snuggled that close to his mama's neck-- he just looks so completely content. They both do, actually.

Great job.

Wow, what a beautiful photo of your sis and nephew. I just love that her is all snuggled up to her, not to mention the lighting is so perfect for the moment being shared, nice and gentle.

Wow - Great entry for No Flash week! I love your use of natural light in both! The softness and obvious love in that first shot really reached out and grabbed me! And the setting and the playfulness of the engagement shot is really special. You've got a real talent! Nice job!
