I thought I’d share a little bit about the background image you see throughout my website. I took this picture on Old Mission Peninsula while on an adventure with a few girlfriends. On our walk back to shore, I noticed a bunch of seagulls perched atop the rocks. They were a fair ways away from us, but I remember thinking aloud, “I wish someone would run out there, right into the middle of that flock of birds.” Without skipping a beat, my friend Amy set down her bag, held onto her skirt, and took off running. I quickly got over my moment of surprise and just started shooting. This is my favorite from that moment, and has easily worked its way into just about everything I do in marketing Moments Captured.
I am consistently drawn to the idea of living in the moment and finding beauty right where you are. I admire this friend for her natural ability to do just that, wherever she is. It’s care-free, nothing weighing you down, breathing in the goodness of life. I’m so thankful I nailed the settings on this shot – I simply love it!
