I have been obsessed at times with trying to capture in motion in my photos. My son makes a great subject because he usually has a ball or a frisbee in his hands. I have tried to get a sense of motion while maintaining clarity of the main subject. The one with my son with the small blue/orange ball captures the motion feel, however the one with the purple ball just doesn't do it for me as the ball looks like it is suspended in air and not moving.
All of this, I know, takes practice and I have years to come to do this.
I left a career as an insurance underwriter back in 1993 to stay at home with my kids and I have never once looked back. I've been fortunate to find a job that I can do from home and have done so for the last 16 years.
I am blessed with a great husband and two wonderful kids. Life doesn't get any better than that...well, throw in a beagle or two and it is a smidge better!
A love of our faith is #1 in our home and always will be.
