Get up and jump!
Converse and dresses, I can’t think of a better combination. I’m going to celebrate it’s finally warm and almost the weekend. What are you?
I’m going to celebrate the growing season… planting grapes this weekend!
What was the celebration for? Purple is my favorite color so I love the matching dress to the shoes.
It was her first semi-formal dance. I picked out the shoes, and then convinced her that the fabric was a perfect match. Really, the hard part was sewing the dress.
I feel like doing this now! I just heard some good news that my son made the summer basketball team and I’m SO proud of him! Nice picture with the colors!
Congratulations to your son!
I see some trend, you started taking pictures of legs :d
LOL… now I feel like I need to do it again. Okay, I have some ideas…
Perfect shot. I always love photography, it’s one of my hobbies.
Jane makes a good point- but I’d say it’s for the privacy protection, too 🙂 I’m glad it’s starting to finally get warm out, because this weather has been too terrible to enjoy!
Yeah, there’s a reason her face isn’t here on the blog… but trust me, she’s adorable all the way through and through. 😉
How did you get the action shot to where she wasn’t blurry? It’s Friday!! That’s my celebration 🙂
Fast shutter speed! 1/400th of a second.
I’ve seen quite a few of similar photos, but yours is compelling because of the contrast (green and purple), I like that you have made the jump the focus and not the person jumping. A well composed photo with the foreground infocus and everything in the distance becoming more fuzzy including the jumping legs as the depth increases. I’m inspired to celebrate!
Thank you, Jenny!
This is a very fun photo. I wonder how many times she had to jump into order to catch the right shot. I’m sure with your type of camera and your skills, it wasn’t much. It takes me forever and takes strategy to match the timing of my normal camera to capture a jump like this!
Actually, I often take dozens of photos to get it right. This time, I was able to get it on the 2nd try.
I’m a sonographer by trade and do photography on the side for no other reason then I love it. This was a great angle and very creative. The converse were an especially nice touch.
I love this shot! I really got to make a photo like this of my daughter jumping. The fact that you see only her legs adds so much more power to the image. Thanks for the inspiration!
Makes me want to jump. Love the color harmony and sense of joy in the photo.
Thank you, Cindy!
You should have given the whole body shot. I didn’t see the dress. It must be really beautiful. But Great capture though.
I tend to be a little more reserved when it comes to photos of my children, which is why their faces don’t appear on this blog. 🙂
I just feel like jumping right now, I’m leaving for vacations =) Definitely need a converse in this color… lol
Great photo. I find it difficult taking photos like that because you need to take it many times to get a great and clear shot. Great angle!
Nice shoes and dress and I love the color purple. 🙂
I read on a previous comment that it only took you two tries to get this shot. I would probably take me all day, especially since I’m sure I don’t even have as great of a camera as you do. By the time I’d get the shot, my subject would probably think of jumping as more of a workout than for joy.
Very sweet! So how did you feel that this was her first dance? This looks like me whenever it his Friday 🙂 Yipppeee!
I felt okay. I know some people get worked up about baby growing up, but I just didn’t feel that way this time.
ah that jump got me back to my childhood.
good shot. how many times did this shot taken?
