Chased by the clouds

I love that we were able to get this session wrapped up just as the wind and clouds were starting to roll in! There are so many shots I love, that you’ll just have to come check to find when the whole set is finished, but for now, here’s a quick peek at one or two. I wish I had time to finish them all right now! Sadly, we’ll all have to wait just a little longer!

Trapped indoors

Wow am I ready to come out of hibernation. Does anyone else feel trapped inside even when there’s nothing really keeping you from walking out the door? No? Just me, huh.

okay . . .
Well anyway, I’m thrilled to share with you some of the things I’ve been learning. Recently I was able to take part in a lighting class taught by the amazing and hard working Jed Colledge. I didn’t take as many photos during the class as I thought I was going to, it ended up being a great afternoon of networking and note-taking. My best takeaway was a practical assignment about the inverse square law. If you really want to get into it, let me know. If not, here’s a little low-key (meaning predominantly dark) love. A HUGE Thanks to Jed for such a great class! I can’t wait for the next one.

Drive By

What photographer hasn’t written a post in over six weeks. Guilty. Ahh! So sorry, its crazy, really because I have been shooting. I’m learning more every day – but who isn’t, right? What’s great about what I’ve been shooting is that I truly love it. I love it for the storytelling, I love it for the way that an image helps me remember days that I would otherwise forget. I love little parts of these images. Freckles. Painterly Light. Simplicity. Warmth. Color. Sincerity. I love that I’m always learning.
What’s not so great about what I’ve been shooting is that you don’t know it because you haven’t seen it. Even worse, a lot of the projects I’ve been working on aren’t going to be featured here. So, again, I apologize. But a few things I can and will share with you. Starting with a little drive by. I’m not sure if anyone else does this. But sometimes I love taking pictures from a moving car. To just grab something quickly as I see it pass me by.
In these I love the clouds, the colors, the hint of winter waving goodbye while spring has yet to arrive. What do you love about your day?

Curious

I often wonder what she’s thinking about, what she’s feeling. I often think about things I could do to inspire her, to encourage her. I ache for her when she suffers, when she’s homesick for friends, or when she doubts herself. Too many times to count, I think of how amazing she is and hope that she can see it, too. I have to laugh sometimes at her unexplainable fits of tears, but my favorite fits are her dinner giggles. She can’t help it and she can’t stop. All my love, to my beautiful girl!


Baby, it cold outside!

COLD, COLD,COLD! BUT my sweet friend is leaving all the wind and the snow behind her! She’s off to Oaxaca, Mexico before Christmas! I didn’t know I was going to have such a great time in the wind and the cold! More to come, soon, but for now here’s a quick peek at the fabulous Hermana Andrews!
