This year in my Facebook group Emotional Storytelling we have been working to inspire and create new images based on weekly themes. For the last four weeks we focused on images of children. This is where photography really began for me and where I draw my best inspiration. Their carefree nature and all the wild things they do have heavily influenced they way I approach photography.

Our theme last week was Adventure. I always feel the most inspired when I let a child lead the way and entertain themselves. My good friend Sarah of the amazing children's adventure clothing line James Vincent Design Co. sponsored this weeks challenge.  She was supposed to choose her favorite image to gift an item from her shop to. Clearly, she finds the challenge of picking from all of this talent as difficult as I do because she chose THREE winners!

Congrats to:

If that wasn't enough, she couldn't narrow it down and chose to give 50% off an item in her shop to the next three:

I'm beginning to believe I may have a thing for Ashley Marston. I always have the hardest time trying to pick just one image from all of the beautiful work she shares, so here is another gorgeous showcase from her.

We would love to have you follow along and join the conversation in our Facebook group Emotional Storytelling with Twyla Jones
