Following Miss Sunday

I am not a professional photographer – I have no concept, really, of how to truly use the new (used) camera I bought from my sister-in-law, even though I absolutely adore it and it has revolutionized my home picture-taking. I just get lost in all the technical terms and the science of it all…

But I have learned that, with the right camera and a house with good lighting and, most importantly, by paying attention to the beauty of everyday life, anyone can document their home-life in a very meaningful and lasting way.

My favorite thing to do right now is to “follow” my kids around. They provide such entertaining moments, easy to capture and perfect to photograph…and the pictures, I’ve found, truly do sum up each child’s personality and display their comings and goings very well.

Let’s follow Miss Sunday for a bit, shall we?…

Counting Smarties in my rocking chair

getting caught…

hiding the evidence…

why am I sitting behind the curtain?…

so I can cry all by myself…

reading with Mama…

sweeping the porch…

sweeping the sidewalk – I have lots of work to do…

waiting for Granddaddy to come home…

so he can push me on the tire swing…

relaxing in the bath with my feet up…

relaxing in the chair with my feet up…

relaxing in the chair with my feet up and my hand in the Cheerio’s…

pretending to be a sleeping princess…

feeling the wind blow my hair…

picking wildflowers in the clothes I picked out all by myself (Papa put my dress on backwards but I don’t mind)…

kissin’ Papa…

My Mama sure follows me a lot.

And sometimes she catches me…

Miss Sunday has a happy life.

    • thank you so much! I have a new one of her doing the “sleeping princess” pose as she is taking a bath in the kitchen sink – I guess that means there will be a “Following Miss Sunday 2”
