Reflected light at the drawing table

In my constant search for interesting light to photograph, I noticed the window light, reflected beautifully from the white drawing paper to my daughter’s face.

Three at the window

For me, quiet, relaxing mornings are one of the joys of summer break. I am thankful that there is no need to get sleepy kids out of bed, no need to find backpacks and pack lunches, and no need to rush out of the house to make it to school before the morning bell.  I welcome the change.

At our house, (most of the year, but especially in the summer) the girls and I enjoy starting our day by creating; the girls wake up and start drawing before breakfast and I enjoy taking photos in amazing morning light.

As the first full week of summer break started today, it seemed like the perfect time to set up the art table again. There is a need for a dedicated space where art supplies are ready anytime and where the girls can come together and create. So, after moving a bit of furniture around, I set up a place for them at the front window, and they immediately started drawing together.

A few minutes later, their sweet pup joined them and all three sat together at the window.

I treasure these moments!

Favorite Photo Friday: Creating in the morning

Some mornings, we have the luxury of having extra time to create. Our girls love to write, draw, design, and build. I love to capture these moments as they unfold, revealing and creating a story of my own in the process.
