I hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July! It was actually sunny here in Florida so we got to enjoy the lake. Last July it rained almost every single day.
Friday was a busy day for snapping candid shots. I don't know why everyone tries to hide from the camera. *wink wink*I guess my blog title fits me just perfectly. My family thinks I'm a little crazy especially my sisters. I know they **secretly** love it! The photography tip I have for this week is to wait patiently for a good shot. If kids or adults aren't feeling it then don't make them pose. I actually don't love posed pictures. Instead I try to capture real expressions. With little ones I'm usually playing some sort of game to get them to smile. Red Light/ Green Light works great at getting a real smile as well as acting goofy.
Before I share my snapshots this week I want to announce the Saturday Snapshot winner for June. It was extremely difficult because all of entries were outstanding!!!This month the winner goes to Courtney at Polka Dot Lesson Plans. Her post really caught my eye. You should see all of her sweet animals. Congrats Courtney! I'll be emailing you. A new challenge starts now!
Remember to link up for the month of July. Instagram link ups work as well... use the hashtag #Saturdaysnapshots #Saturdaysnapshotswithmissnelson
