Love Thursday Featured Fotographer: Kimberly Brimhall


"Carried With Love."

When I saw the photograph, above,  it brought me back to all the feelings that I had while waiting for my own daughter to be born:  the feelings of anticipation, excitement, concern:  the sorts of feelings that all expectant mothers feel, regardless of how their children come to be a part of their families.  And while the feelings may be complex, and plentiful, and even overwhelming, the truth is that ultimately, they all boil down to one emotion:  love.

 Happy Love Thursday, everyone.  This is the second in our monthly series, "Love Thursday Featured Fotographer."  The photograph above was submitted to the Shutter Sisters Flickr pool, taken by the extremely talented Kimberly Brimhall.  Be sure to check out the rest of her photographs here, and you can drop by her blog, Cheating Destiny, for more visual goodness.  And of course,  please leave links to your images of love in the comments below.

And may you experience complex, plentiful and even overwhelming feelings of love today.

This is such a lovely shot. And I adore Kimberly's work!
Your post reminded me of this shot. It's from a long time ago but it reminds me of the love I was bursting with when I was expecting my second daughter.
Happy Love Thursday. xo tracey

My son was excited the other day. He told me that his strawberry was in the shape of a heart!

I, of course, thought of Love Thursday, and asked if I could take a photo.

This week I'm celebrating, of all things, love in politics...come on, you know you're curious!

beautiful shot from Kimberley, her stuff is always so cool.

This week I'm thinking a lot about my dad who came to visit a couple of weeks ago. He's such a great grandpa to my son. We're both lucky to have him.

Here he is being a bucking bronco. These shots are so sweet.

Happy LT to everybody!

Your words really speak to me. Even though I don't have any children yet and I'm not pregnant, I can imagine the love people must feel when expecting a child.
Ever since I was a child, I knew I wanted children when I grew up. Right now my boyfriend and I are both still a students. But when I think about having children in a few years, I already feel a lot of love for them.

Happy love thursday:

I love these beautiful belly shots. Mine is all about sibling love, and what the experts say about birth order.

I adore this picture of my daughter and her grandpa! I did not have a relationship with any of my grandparents growing up, so the relationship that my daughter shares with her grandparents is very, very special to me.

happy love thursday!

What a terrific photo!

I love the smell of the warm earth, when I get down on the ground to capture the early spring flowers. It makes me smile. Happy Love Thursday. :)

A comment on flickr reminded me that the simple pleasures can truly be grand. And so this week I present my love of a trash can. Seriously.
