Life in an Instant: What makes you smile?

Life in an Instant

This week I attended a photography workshop presented by Dana & Todd of the White on Rice Couple. The workshop was sponsored by Invisalign and the theme of the day was, “Things That Make You Smile.” Get it? Dental Hygiene and Things That Make You Smile … great analogy.

At the end of the workshop, we had 15 minutes to capture something on our phones that made us smile, my pic under pressure — top left: the image of Little picking his nose. He hadn’t seen me for a few hours and just couldn’t wait to share his “latest discovery” with me, how could that not make me smile?

I won Runner-Up for this photo and while it was difficult to work under a time constraint and think outside the box, I realized my whole camera is filled with pictures of things that make me smile.

That’s kind of my thing.

That’s what this whole series is about, Life in an Instant is like my own little visual gratitude diary — a way of remembering the tender, often serendipitous moments of my days that just might be forgotten if not captured on film.

It has blossomed into something I really enjoy and I hope that you do too. Do you? I sure hope so.

I invite you all to share similar moments from your week here with me, or on Instagram (I’m @steet) by using the hashtag: #liai (<- Life in an Instant) or even on my Facebook page. Whatever is easiest for you, however you can reach me. I’d love to see what moments are taking hold in your heart this week.
