Hey everyone!

Let's have a regular photo contest this time, since our last one (Why do you love photography?) was more essay based, and we are all about showing our images!

I've chosen a theme as follows:

"Innocence"

Our kind and generous ILP vendors have offered the following prizes for you to shoot for. Please click on their banners to check their sites out. Then please consider submitting an entry to our contest, thanks! :)

Will there be just one winner, and that person chooses their prize? Or will there be runner ups etc.

Eta never mind, lol. My iPad scrolling missed the end bit the first time around!

She asked me what those flowers were. I told her "honeysuckle". "OH honey! I love honey!" I asked if she'd ever tried a honeysuckle. She looked at me as if I'd grown a second head.

I showed her how to pull the bottom off slowly and catch the glistening drop of nectar on the stamen with her tongue. She was hooked. She picked as many as she could carry (stuffing them in her shirt so they didn't "squish"), and got lost in one of MY favorite childhood pastimes. :)

This photo speaks "innocence" to me...

This shot was taken during a newborn session with Owen's baby brother. Baby Kellan needed to take a nursing break so Owen decided this would be the perfect time to go downstairs to get a picture with his fish and with his favorite toys. He posed next to his fish, his ping pong table and next to dad's work boots.... Then when it was time to head back upstairs he said, "But, wait...I have one more thing". He climbed on his pony, and gave me this proud and serious expression. When I showed it to him on the camera screen, he said, "This one is for you, you can keep it". It melted my heart and will always be one of my very favorite images....

This is my sweet Naomi Grace. She recently said, "I can see the moon, Mommy! It's way up high. I can't even reach it, but if I had wings, I could fly up there and touch the moon!" Yes, sweet princess, if you had wings, you could do just that! :) Though I may be a bit biased, this precious photo is innocence captured to me. :)
