Macro Friday

October 08, 2010
If you asked me yesterday what I was going to post today, I probably told you that I have nothing. Nothing. In fact, I was almost prepared to not post anything today – but seriously people, that might be painful…and we’ve already established that I have an addiction problem (photo challenge addiction, it’s a real thing…look it up).  Anyways, I got my hair did yesterday afternoon. Macro hair photography isn’t really my forte, so I thought I’d photograph something a little more symbolic…and abstract. I also played around with my processing,...

Tommy and Stacey: Sneak Peek!

October 07, 2010
I mentioned on Tuesday that I met up with Tommy and Stacey on Sunday for my second engagement photo session. If you haven’t seen one of my favorites from that session, click here (I seriously think they should blow this up or send out as Save-the-Date cards…something). I learned a few lessons during our session: I am not going to actively pursue a portrait photography career…at least not any time soon.

Well, wait no  more…I wrote a tutorial over at Paper Heart Camera today!...

Hey Mr. Postman!

October 06, 2010
I’ve already mentioned a gazillion times that I love getting mail…it makes me happy. I’ve shared with you that I participate in postcrossing and the Dear Darlings Pen Pal Project, but I received a letter the other day that was from neither of those sources. I received a letter from THE PAPER MAMA!!! Since you all know that I’ll look for any good excuse to take a picture, I thought I’d share with you a few photos. How pretty is this card?!She also sent three other cards that I’m to share with others – I sent one off yesterday.One of the things you...
