Giveaway: Elevate the Everyday
Today I’m giving away a copy of blogger/ photographer Tracey Clark‘s brand new book Elevate the Everyday: A Photographic Guide to Picturing Motherhood. Using a mix of technical tips, personal stories, and inspirational images, Tracey focuses on the beauty in ordinary moments, and helps you see your children in a new way through the lens of your camera.
Halfway through reading this book I was picking up my camera to get some everyday shots of my own. I’ve got more to sort out and share with you later, but here’s one that I love of my older daughter and her baby. I love the peacefulness on both their faces and the way his sweet little arm is tucked into hers.
And after happening across this article about taking pictures of your friends, I wondered why on earth I don’t do that more often. Here’s a picture that I asked my daughter to take of my friends Beth and Molly with me one day when they were at our house for a pool day with our kids.
It really is an inspiring book, and I’m thrilled to be giving away a copy. To enter the drawing to win this book, comment below and tell me about a picture you took recently that you love. For an additional entry, share this post on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, and come back to comment again and tell me where you shared it. I’ll pick a winner on Friday!
