Perfect Timing: Week 23

09 Apr

Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.

Last week we took some much needed time away. I spent one glorious week with my husband’s family and got to play with our niece and nephew quite a bit. Our niece is at the age where everything must be done her way. Hah! She tried so hard to get her sandals fastened, and she worked on it for quite some time. Finally, she huffed and stuck her little feet out in front of her mother, who gave me one of those looks that means, “I was waiting to see how long it would take her to let me help.” I love this shot because of the ordinary moment between mother and daughter. Sometimes we need the help of our parents more than we’re willing to admit. I totally identify with my niece’s independence, but loved this sweet moment between them that I was able to capture.

Week 22

{a mother’s touch}

Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too: Springtime.

    Love. Love. Love this. – everything from the composition, the journalistic capturing of a real moment, the b&w conversion; and naturally next to the photographic elements I love this precious loving moment. Well done!
