Hello Beautiful – and Happy Independence Day! We hope you are all celebrating a beautiful 4th of July – so beautiful that you can’t help but snap a photo to capture and save the moment.

large-1For some extra inspiration on this summer holiday, here are some lovely thoughts on beauty from MyChelle fan Susan Blackwell:

“Beauty…I believe beauty is catching moments in time. I love to take photos of people, sunrises, sunsets, nature, wildlife, sporting events and anything along the way. This is how I catch beauty. I love to capture those moments that are most important to someone, also love catching those fun moments that no one expects. It makes people smile, laugh or even cry. I want to travel the world taking photos, showing others what beauty means to me.” ~ Susan Blackwell
