I was going to bake cupcakes and bought a box of mini merangue. As I was preparing my ingredients, I discovered a canister of sprinkles my son got for our regular ice cream dessert. Needles to say I forgot all about baking and did this instead :)

My name is Aileen and I’m a mother, photographer and yoga teacher. I specialize in macro and close-up photography. I love capturing the tiny and revealing their beauty and uniqueness. There is so much beauty right under our noses if we only took the time to really look. Details in texture and the behavior of light and shade on the small scale is so fascinating for me. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did capturing them.

    Great concept and capture, Aileen. Keep this one in mind when Feb 14th rolls around! And glad to see photography is a higher priority than cupcakes! :o)

  • hahahaha! Yes, photography takes priority :) and the best part is, my son doesn’t mind at all. Thanks for the comments & suggestion, I’ll definitely keep this in mind for Valentines…actually, I’m waiting for a challenge on Simply White (group) to start so I can enter this.
