I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Hi there! Mr. Golightly here. I love photography. Really, I like staging the perfect shot. Adding light, using the flash, and finding the perfect pose for the subject. The subject is usually my wife (Ms. April Golightly) or my daughter Mini Golightly. But in all honesty, one thing I’ve found most is that the most beautiful moments and photos in my life have been of unscripted moments. The moments when the lighting is not perfectly set up. I cannot help, but love and capture those amazing unscripted moments as well.
In fact we have an entire wall in our bathroom filled with unscripted photos. Mostly of our beautiful daughter, but still, we’ve found that these moments are really the ones that we love the most. In the photo above our daughter (#MiniGolightly) was trying every chair she could find at our local Ikea until she found one that she liked. It was so adorable to see her weigh the comfort of each chair! She also tried out the boxes as chairs. There was a survey recently conducted by AVEENO that found that the unscripted moments end up being the ones that parents prefer over the perfectly staged moments.
Here is our daughter playing with one of her many hats. Ever since my wife started wearing hats, my daughter started wearing them as well. It is so cute that she wants to be just like mommy. She does it with hats and sunglasses which I cannot complain about, but I can complain about her trying to put on makeup already. Mini Golightly likes to sit at Mommy’s vanity and put on all kids of makeup. Can we slow this growing up thing down?!!!
