It was Victor Borge who said, “laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” And, I couldn’t agree more. Laughter has this magical way of knocking down walls, creating bonds and filling a room with sunshine for the soul. I just love it’s contagious power. Being a family and children photographer, half of my job is spent laughing. I mean, how could it not, when you’re working with some of the most fun-loving people around! It’s always those images that end of being my favorites from a session. I can look back at them and start giggling all over again.

Speaking of LAUGHTER that happens to be this month’s Twelve by Twelve theme, which was chosen by Jen from Shooting for Keeps Photography. She’ll be judging the images submitted on the Twelve by Twelve Facebook page as well, so if you’d like to be a part of the fun, head on over.

Be sure to visit the blog of Brooke of Hamilton Creek Photography HERE for her post about “laughter” and then follow the blog circle along.

June’s Twelve and Twelve theme was “grounded” and between packing up our house in Washington, living out of our suitcases at our dear friend’s homes for almost two weeks, our move to Florida and awaiting our moving truck and finally the internet, I’m really, really late (that’s an understatement) in announcing the June winner and a first and second runner-up. I truly loved all the submissions. Selecting just one favorite wasn’t easy, but without further ado…

 

Congratulations to Melissa of Contemporary Captures Photography for submitting the winning photograph for June!
Her colorful underwater image tugged at my playful heart.
