The theme for todays photo is ‘Round The House, picked by yours truly.
Here’s my entry.
Be sure to head over to Lana’s to check out her entry and see the theme for tomorrow!
My pal Lana, a fellow photographer, (check her out over at Cease Fire Studios ) contacted me last week about doing a daily photography challenge.
Basically we take turns coming up with a theme, then we each take a photo that represents our spin or interpretation of the theme.
I like this idea because as someone who photographs people primarily, sometimes I loose touch with photographing inanimate objects.
The challenge starts today, Monday, and will go through the end of the week. Be sure to stop by mine and Lana’s blogs and let us know who you think captured it best!
Oh yeah, bring it Lana, bring it!!!
Monday: Color My World!
As many of you know, I am an affiliated photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization in which photographers donate their time to families who don’t get to take their babies home from the hospital.
As both my children spent precious time in the NICU, one being very touch and go for a while, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.
Please don’t misunderstand, this is a very, very hard thing to do. People often ask me, “How do you not just cry through the whole thing”. Umm I do. I cry the whole drive to the hospital and silently cry throughout the session. However, I firmly believe that God lifts the burden from my heart upon leaving the session. Otherwise, there is absolutely no way I could continue doing this.
OK, here’s where we need your help, there are only 5 photographers in the Kentuckiana area who have agreed to give their time and talents to this organization, with a combined population of over 1 million people, it’s just not working. All 5 of us have families, jobs and other outside commitments. We need some more people. BAD!
The area coordinator, Courtney Lambert, has posted some more information over on her blog, please visit her blog, courtneylambertphotography.blogspot.com , and look to your heart, your God, wherever and see if this is a cause you can help!
A preview from Terra and Steve’s engagement session on Thursday!
Tiffani contacted me to take pictures of her day old son Everett, for a First 48 Hours Session, meeting his 3 siblings for the first time. Talk about a full room! 4 kiddos all under the age of 5!
The reaction of everyone was just priceless. They all wanted to love on the baby and were so gentle. Tiffani told me she was so happy she thought ahead of time to book a First 48 Hours package as she’ll never have these moments back. Welcome to the world Sweet Everett.
A few months ago my sweet friend Tiffany contacted me about a portrait session for her 5th anniversary.
So exciting! They live down in Midway, Kentucky so we don’t get to see each other nearly as much as we should. I was ecstatic about a visit with Tiffany and Ryan.
Fun Fact: I was in Ryan and Tiffany’s wedding as a “groomsmaid” when I was 8 months pregnant with Conner. (I’ll see if I can round up a picture next post)
I wanted to post a quick picture for them!
Aren’t they adorable!?
A gorgeous day for a gorgeous wedding outside at the beautiful Cherokee Park in the Highlands of Louisville, Ky. Seriously, somebody must have promised their first born for the weather they had. BEAUTIFUL.
Just a few before I get them all finished and sent their way!
Remember a couple weeks ago where I talked about how much I love packaging? Well I also love supporting and buying handmade, so it’s not surprise that one of my favorite shopping websites is www.etsy.com.
You need to follow her blog too, there she offers a “lovely of the week” as well as sales, previews and interviews with other handmade artisans!
A couple weeks ago I ordered this gorgeous necklace and from Maizie Designs. She also sent a pair of matching earrings. I LOVE them. In addition to them being wonderfully handcrafted, they are the exact color of my logo and branding.
When I got the package in the mail I could hardly stand it! She is a girl after my own heart, her packaging was so perfect!
Take a look.
