“Slice of Life” – {I Heart Faces}

One of my favorite photography websites is I Heart Faces.  They have weekly photo challenges, tutorials, and a thriving online community of photographers (professional, aspiring and hobbyists).  I love it because I find it an endless resource for learning and inspiration.

This week, their photo challenge theme is “Slice of Life”, and I thought this photo I snapped of my husband and daughter would be a great contribution.  My husband is much better at doing our daughter’s hair than I am (go figure!), and many mornings he can be found getting her ready for school, putting her hair in ponytails or pigtails, snapping in a barrette or two.

I look at this photo and my heart just soars.  It’s such an everyday moment, but it captures perfectly what an amazing father my husband is – a big tough guy, covered in tattoos, doing his little girl’s hair :)


Edited to add: My photo was chosen as one of Angie and Amy’s Favorites of the week! Thank you so much! The other winners were just stunning, I am so honored to be among them :)  And thank you so much to everyone who commented – I am so grateful for your kind words!
