Beauty Captured

Beauty Captured is my personal journey to find beauty in the day to day. It is not difficult to find but many days can be over looked way too easily. In my search for beauty, I will take a picture every day and post it here.

Beauty can be defined in so many ways. Messy faces, sunsets, piles of dirty laundry, smiling children....the opportunities are endless! The goal is to get out there and capture those moments. Savor them. Remember. Find joy in the beauty.

I would love it if you would join me! Every day I will post my picture. At the end of my post will be a link up. You can link to your picture through your blog, Instagram or Pinterest. You do not have to feel overwhelmed and link up every day. Just do it when you can. No obligation. Even if I have days I am all alone, thats okay. The link up will be there when you do post a picture!

No need to have an expensive camera. Any camera will do the job! Use your imagination. Be creative, Search for beauty!

I only have two rules.
#1. Only link to your picture. If you have a few words to say about it...great! Do NOT link to a blog post that may contain a picture in it. Make sense? Let's keep it simple. Daily picture easy to find. 
#2. Family Friendly, Modest pictures only! All others will be deleted. I know different people have different modesty levels but lets just try to veer on the safe side of any pictures posted.

If you do link up with Instagram or Pinterest you can always hashtag it with #beautycaptured and that way we can find each other easier. I have a few buttons that you can use if you would like but it is not mandatory. You can find those at the top of this page in the tabs under what else but..."Beauty Captured".

If you have visited my blog for very long you know that I LOVE taking pictures. It is my passion. That being said I am no professional. So there will not be any advice giving going on. I can help with what I know but I promise that is not all that much. I am still getting comfortable my camera settings! In my search for beauty, an added bonus is USING my camera a lot more. So I am hoping to teach myself a thing or two and I will definitely let you in on the things I learn as we go. 

So are you as excited as I am? I have been excited all month waiting for August to roll around. I have been busy with all the fun details like Beauty Capture buttons and of course, talking my husbands ear off about my new journey. So starting August 1st I will begin this new journey! Will you search for beauty?

If you are planning on joining, would you please let me know in the comments? Maybe even introduce yourself a bit. I would love to get to know everyone better and be able to encourage you in your search for beauty in your life.

Hi Miranda, I am from the Crew and would love to join you! I homeschool my 4 children and love taking photos. I'll be posting them daily on my photography blog: http://joyfulfacesphotography.blogspot.com/

And maybe doing a weekly re cap on my family blog.

Blessings!

I think it sounds fun.

Erica B said...

I really like the concept! I may not be able to do a daily picture but will certainly join up whenever I can! Thanks for starting this.

Christa said...

Sounds fun - I can link my individual blog post, just a photo and no words?

Melissa Wright said...

Great idea! I will do my best to check back this month and join in if I can.

Roxanne Mapp said...

Beautiful post! We are surrounded by so much beauty!

I'm from the Crew and plan to join you. I am thinking that I will do a weekly post with a photo from each day of the week. Looking forward to this because I just got a new camera and have to learn how to use it. (It is a point-and-shoot but has some bells and whistles for this rank amateur to figure out!)

Miranda said...

I look forward to seeing your pictures!

Miranda said...

You can add a bit of a description or say something about the picture but I want to stay away from linking to a whole blog post that has nothing to do with the actual picture for that day. Does that make sense?

Miranda said...

Yay! Have fun with your new camera!

Melissa Cwell said...

Oh, I want in!

April said...

You know I'm a photography passionate person, too, so I will be there. If not daily, at least weekly.

JNPmommie said...

I'm going to try to do this as well. It'll give me something else to blog about, if I can remember to do it.

Jennifer aGlimpseOfOurLife said...

I'm looking forward to this. I'm planning to Jon you often rough Pinterest.

Mindy said...

Photos are so much fun! What a neat idea!

Renata said...

I just love this idea Miranda. I don't think I'll be able to join in daily, but I may choose one day of the week to join. Is that alright?
Blessings

I'm aiming to join you, hopefully daily. Haven't decided whether it'll be on my blog, or pinterest.

Susan said...

I was just thinking that I've gotten out of the habit of snapping photos that are NOT specifically for a schooly thing or a longer blog post... and that's not a good thing. I think I might join you. :)

Wendy Ross said...

...and after some research, I see that it won't be via Pinterest (I don't have a "smart phone"). So, it'll be on the blog.

Amanda Shoemaker said...

This is a great idea! I wish I knew more about taking photographs, but there's no time like the present to learn. :)
