Hi, I'm Neyssa

This week’s lesson isn’t technical, instead it’s a reminder to capture defining details before they disappear!
Having two kids is such a blessing. I love capturing their individual personalities, the details that make them each unique, the different stages they are in. However, it is also fun to see when they do things that are so similar.

Do you remember my article on defining details that was published this past fall on (one of the nation’s top websites for photographers)? There is a photo of Milo “talking” on my phone. He used to do it all of the time.

While this stage has come and gone for Milo, Sawyer has started doing the same thing recently. I had to capture how adorable she was talking on the phone. (Notice the light beaming into her hand? Yes, the phone is backwards!)

From experience I know how quickly this phase may pass, so I made sure to get my camera out and photograph Sawyer with phone in hand.

This weekend, I remind  you to capture those fleeting defining details before they disappear! For inspiration and tips, make sure you read my article on defining details here!
