Encouraging Word // Light & Blessed (CY365 & OLW)

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // light banner, sunset, silhouette, baby hands, little helper, #OLW, #CY365The prompt yesterday at Capture Your 365 was to “photograph an encouraging word”, and Katrina Kennedy encouraged us to incorporate our One Little Word if we had a word for the year. I’m so glad she suggested just that!

I had originally put this little still life together with one of my favorite tags and my cherished bible charm on my Pandora bracelet, thinking I wouldn’t have time to put something together with “light” (my one little word/OLW). After school, after running errands, my girls and I were headed home, when my 7-yr old commented on the lovely light, and that I should get a photo. Right then and there I decided to run back home to grab my DSLR and the “light” banner I had made. So glad we did! My 7-yr old really is getting the photography-bug and I love it! Those are her little arms in the shot. Absolute love!

Are you taking Ali Edwards’ One Little Word class? I’m looking forward to catching up on the class materials, but that certainly isn’t stopping me from jumping in where and when I can! What’s your word for the year? I’d love to hear!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

Light // Backlit and Colorful {Photo Challenge}

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and when I read the prompt for the Daily Post “Weekly Photo Challenge: Light” I thought – perfect, I’ll do Christmas lights! I’ll get some bokeh! Maybe even some candlelight! Then I realized um, that would entail actually having our tree up and house decorated. And that’s a no go, so even though I waited til the very last moment to submit my photo {in hopes of getting said decorations up!}, I realized I’ve been busy at the beach with amazing photo sessions featuring our lovely natural light…

So here are a few of my favorite recent shots featuring the magnificent sun light and beautiful colors it provides.
