Magic Everywhere

On Holy Saturday, we were running an errand for my mom at the local photo/camera store, and Christian decided to surprise me with the camera lens I’ve been wanting for a long time–one that has a super-low F stop. I hadn’t had time to play around with it too much (see: busy) until this past weekend. Saturday night, as we were having a backyard fire pit cookout, Alex said, “Mom! Look at the way the light comes through the smoke.”

I looked–and then I ran for the camera.

That night, I really got to experience the “golden hour.” There was magic everywhere. I hope you enjoy.
