a jinky moment

I had the immense pleasure of spending 2+ days this weekend with the fabulous Barb Uil from Australia.  If you don’t know Barb Uil and you’re a kids photographer, now’s the time to get acquainted.  She’s on of the top children’s photographers in zee world!  And yep….I got to shoot along side her on a 100 acre farm just outside of Pittsburgh.  I was one of 11 photographers who attended the 1st of 3 workshops held in PA but her 3+ month travels in the US have already put her in Cali and Montana and in a couple more weeks she’s off to Ohio to teach more and then back west before finally return Down Undah in September.  I went for inspiration.  There is so much JOY in her photographs, you can’t help but sigh and smile and think…”could her clients be ANY MORE HAPPY???” and could each moment be “ANY MORE IDYLLIC????”  Ugh!  Makes me envious but inspired none the less.  So, over the course of the workshop I coined the phrase, “it’s a Jinky moment”.  You know the moment when something so fabulous happens it could only be a Jinky sort of moment?  Like when a butterfly flies down and sits on a child’s nose?  Or you find a ladybug climbing up your sleeve?  Or a beautiful horse neighs and wisps of your hair blow gently in the breeze–ok that might be pushing it. 🙂  Those would be Jinky moments.  And here’s mine that I captured.  It epitomizes that to a “T”.  Her beautiful daughter Penny, with a little butterfly she caught in her hands, on a tree swing, at sunset, on a 100 acre farm.  Perfection.  More photos to share this week!  xoxo
