I Heart Faces - Joy

Anne Ruthmann is an amazing wedding photographer. She's got a huge heart, and an even bigger laugh! We've known eachother for a few years, and last year we went out to lunch one day. I grabbed this shot of her at our lunch table:

Emily and Ian are full of joy too -- I'd been working on my natural light posing and given them a little "assignment". Ian was to whisper into Emily's ear, and then Emily was to turn and whisper into Ian's ear. I got some excellent shots before the kids couldn't restrain themselves and the whole session dissolved into gales of giggles!

These two images have "joy" all over them -- even thinking back at the memories I get a huge silly grin on my face! So I'm entering them in this week's "I Heart Faces" contest -- hopefully my blog viewers will click the button above and visit all the other joyful faces too!

Amazing entries for our theme of joy. You can actually feel their joy right through the computer screen. :)

What great images! I love the spontaneous laughter of the first entry and the open mouth, wide eyed glee in the second is fabulous! (Also, a very good idea for getting some fun kid shots!)

Great timing on that first capture! A second earlier or later and you might have missed that perfect expression of joy. It's really good!
