I ♥ Faces-From a distance

This week we’re going to focus on portrait photos that were taken at more of a distance.  Examples of this would be:  a photo with the people way off in the distance in a beautiful location, a photo that features a whole slew of people rather than focusing on a single face, a silhouette photo taken from afar, a photo with the subjects walking away from the camera, etc.

I have been waiting since APRIL to use this photo!  I love it so much!  This is our sweet friends that invite us along to their gorgeous land.  I have learned so much from them and treasure their friendship.  We spent an incredibly fun weekend with them in April and while we were supposed to be packing up, I decided to sneak some pictures in instead.  Even in silhouette, you can see their adorable personalities in the photos, each of the beautiful children with their incredible mom (dad was actually packing up hee hee!)  I think it makes it even more special knowing that all the land you see in the photo, all the beautiful water, is all theirs.  Lucky dogs!  LOL  I’m lucky they like me and invite us along for their fun!

(I will be gone ALL this week at church camp counseling the teenage girls from my church, so I’ll be missing all the great photos this week!  But I promise to check them all out when I get back!  So, if you have a second this week……pray for me.  I may need it.  😉  It’s not easy living with 15+ teenage, hormonal girls.  HAHAHAHA!  But this just means:  MORE WORSHIP PHOTOS!  YAY!)
