Meeting Sarah…

October 20, 2010
Last night, I met up with Sarah from Loving My Life and her family for a mini-portrait session. Earlier in the day, she found a wonderful location that offered a beautiful view and wonderful lighting (I’ll have to save this location for later). Of course we asked her husband, Kenny, if he would take our picture together…I think he did a pretty decent job. I haven’t quite gotten to the family photos yet, but I did want to share a couple of photos I took for Sarah’s new photography blog. I am super pleased with how this particular shot turned out. I love everything about...

Self Portrait

October 13, 2010
This month, I had several prompts to take a new self portrait: Jess’ monthly “Facing Myself” photo challenge at The Old Nichols Farm, this week’s Paper Heart Camera’s “Show and Tell” challenge, and of course the October 2010 Photo Hunt (one of the items is a self-portrait). So…armed with my tripod, 50mm lens , wide angle converter and a little creativity, I decided that yesterday would be the day I’d take a decent self-portrait.

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...

Children’s Portrait Session: Sneak Peek!...

September 29, 2010
This weekend, I met up with Emma, Frances and Caroline for a portrait session. For the record, this was my very first children’s portrait session, and I am now fully aware that I need more practice shooting children (well not literally…you know what I mean). For those of you that have been sending me “have a baby already” messages…you’re still going to have to wait at least another year before I’m photographing my own children. Anyways, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites from the session. I’m still knee deep in editing, but...
