A Boy, A Toy, and Light

A while back I blogged about how you should blog for you and no one else, remember that? Well, I’m taking my own advice. I’m blogging for me. And for me, blogging includes a look into my life, tutorials on beginner photography, and some personal projects. So, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to make myself happy. I was driving myself crazy only blogging tutorials. That’s no fun. That’s not what I’m here for. I’m excited to start to show you examples of those tutorials. How I put them into effect in my shooting and life.

I’ll be first to tell you, my life isn’t perfect. My house isn’t always clean. My kid isn’t always happy. But, you know what? That’s the beauty of real life. And that’s what I strive to capture. Sometimes, I clean up an image before I take it (meaning, I clean up the room!) but sometimes, I’m too lazy, and I make things harder for me in post processing by leaving a room messy. It happens. Life happens. And you know what? No regrets. Because that means I get more time with my little one (who, by the way, is currently signing ‘milk’ to me because he’s tired). And more time with my little one is exactly the reason I quit my job.

I am so blessed that I get to stay home with my boy. Because I am a stay at home mom, I get to witness my son learning new things. And he learns lots of new things each week! I taught him how to sign ‘milk’ and he does! I also got to watch him stand for the first time. Pull himself up (that was actually a few months ago, but I’m just now blogging about it!). After he learned how to stand, he started standing on this toy of his. He also doesn’t like to sit inside the toy like a normal kid does, he likes to walk around it. Hey, if it makes him happy, then it makes me happy. He does this all the time, but the other day, I finally decided I needed to photograph it! Because before long, he’ll have better things to do…

I am a photographer, a wife, a sister, and now a momma to be. I strive to capture the beauty in ordinary things. I love to photograph people, places, and things that I love and cherish. I am a lover of natural light, macro, lifestyle, and dark and moody images. I am a die hard Nikon fan, I love yellow starbursts, I am a pianist, and I am obsessed with photography, maybe a little too much!
