These photos were taken in a non professional capacity but I still wanted to share. Doing photos for a living sometimes means I choose to leave the camera at home and take a break from taking pictures. But this event had me excited to shoot for fun. It had all the elements that make me want to capture the moment. It had great weather, loads of smiling faces and vibrant beautiful colours. What more could I want?
It also helped that my daughter took part along with a large number of the Hinckley Running Club Juniors (run by my husband). So we had to be there anyway. But I'm glad I was.
The kids clearly loved the event. I don't think I've ever seen a group of happier kids who were about to embark on a 1 mile run. My daughter for one would not have taken part had it not been for the chance to cover herself in paint.
