a new capture

June 4, 2017

I frequently find that I like to stretch myself when it comes to my photography…so I am pretty regularly taking workshops and signing up for classes to learn and grow.  It is truly amazing how much there is to learn and that I can always find something new to explore.  This new venture, however, takes a bit of a twist because its switching my dial in the video direction of my dslr.

I signed up for a workshop recently and the challenge was to shoot pictures and video in one session (eek!) …so I asked my new friend Emily to help me out and she and her family agreed!  Emily is also a wonderful photographer (along with her husband) and her two cute boys made perfect subjects.

Below is the video that I created…it was so challenging!  Editing and shooting video is a whole new world to me…but I am thankful I have my husband Chris to bounce ideas off of and to ask for advice in how to do things in this whole new software since he has been doing video for so long now.  Before this, the only video I had taken was at a wedding that I assisted him on but all I had to do was press stop and start while the camera was on a tripod ;0)

new projects

April 21, 2017

I have started a new project this year…its mostly for my family, but I have been sharing it on my Instagram page as well.  I will be making a book of these for my babes to look at for all their days…I feel like the words of scripture should be written on their hearts and sometimes a picture to go with it makes that a bit easier to remember and its definitely more impactful <3

I am also diving into another project of fine art photography soon…more to come :0)

double digits!

any opportunity I have to shoot my babes is great…but especially when one of them is turning double digits! (where did the time go…gah!)

 

windy

March 12, 2017

Right before the really windy day hit, we had another windy day that was mostly “blow your hair around but not knock out your power” kind of day.  I wanted to document him with his airplane because we had just got back from vaca and he had taken his first plane ride…but it was too windy to do much of anything…he still smiled through it all though. :0)

So I decided years back that I was not going to do wedding photography because my passion was with capturing families, but when my step sister called to ask me to shoot her wedding I said yes! :0)  This was a cool experience for me because I had to do this all on my own while my trusty assistant (aka my handsome husband) was shooting video…I slung two cameras around my body and began to shoot.  I have to say that one thing about shooting weddings that really excites me are all the organic moments where you are just a fly on the wall capturing all the happiness…..Ooohhh….I just loved that part!  Super congrats to the happy couple <3
