Kate @ Daffodils - Guest Post

Today I have for you Kate from Daffodils. We decided to do a swap regarding to why we love photography. You may read why I love photography over at her blog. Enjoy!

Hi Nicole Marie readers! My name is Kate and I am so happy to be here today. Most days, you can find me over at Daffodils blogging about my life in California with my two little boys and handsome husband. I started my blog two years ago as a place to keep my daily inspirations, but it has evolved over time to mostly showcasing my sweet little guys and our exploration of life in CA. In the past year, I have gotten very into photography and even started a website where you lovely people can buy prints of some of my photos.

Since Nicole and I both share a love for the camera, I thought I would tell you a little bit about why I enjoy taking pictures so much. It is a little ironic that I have gotten into photography because when my hubby and I were decorating our first house together, I only want painted artwork, specifically impressionist work. That cannot be further from the preciseness of a photograph, right? As time went on and I embraced some of the photos that Kev previously owned, I began to appreciate the art much more.

I started seeing the world through my lens and noticing little moments that I would have previously missed, or not seen as beautiful.

 I now see the art of photography, capturing a distinct line between the ocean and the sky, while focusing on the beauty of an unbloomed flower.

 I'm now not only able to see the amazing contrast between light and dark, but more importantly, I can document so many moments of my childrens' ever growing curiosity. 

Best of all, it is something I am able to share with all of you, both on my blog and through my professional website.
