Welcome to the 11th week of Shoot and Edit: Part 1. Click HERE for all the details and upcoming prompts/themes.  This week our theme or prompt is “FLOWERS” (this is just a suggestion, you can show us any SOOC shot).  You have until Wednesday each week to link your SOOC shot up on Jill’s blog.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

March 20, 2011
I’m not sure I got as much accomplished as I hoped this week…in particular, I did not photograph “model eyes” for Selfie Saturday. Although, I still want to work this one out…I just got busy this past week and our weekend was full of engagement parties and bridal showers (okay, just one of each, but still). I typically try to get my Scavenger Hunt items pulled together early in the week…but I even procrastinated on that. I’d much rather just go outside and enjoy our beautiful weather. Oh well. Anyways, it’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday. If ...

The Portico: Sneak Peek!

March 18, 2011
Last Saturday, I met up with my friend Pam and a few members (14-16) of The Portico (aka the youth group she leads) for a quick photography session…and I say quick because we’re talking about teenagers and they have a pretty short attention span. I’ve never really photographed a large group before so it was quite interesting trying to coordinate so many bodies, but we had a lot of fun. Pam really does have a great group of kids! Here’s a few pictures from our session: We started out at the fountain to get everyone warmed up. It’s always funny to me how nervous...
