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...

As if my weekly photography assignments aren’t keeping me busy enough, you guys know that I’m also participating in Faith’s SLR Class this month. In some cases (hangs head in shame), I’m even avoiding some of the assignments – sorry Faith.  Two assignments seemed to overlap for me: “shoot where you are,” and “a day in your life.” When I got the “shoot where you are” assignment, I was sitting in my office. I carry my camera with me everywhere, so I figured I could go ahead and snap a few photos around my office. I can’t...

The Bug

September 03, 2010
Over the weekend, we visited my husband’s family in the North Carolina mountains (well close…but if I told you exactly where, you’d just be confused) to celebrate my husband’s birthday (which was yesterday…happy birthday sweetheart). On Saturday, we ran a few errands in town and then planned to go back to the house. Well…we forgot to grab a key to the house – so, when we got back to the house, we were locked out. Fortunately, I had my camera plus two lenses including my macro lens. It was pretty hot and humid but I was determined to take advantage of...
