Photography

With the gift of becoming a mommy to so many babies in such a short time (ahem…back to back), I developed a love for “taking pictures of them”….LOTS AND LOTS of pictures of them! ha!

And ….as time passed, and my “tools” for taking photos became more evolved, my love for “taking pictures” started to turn into a “passion” for photography.

Photography just seemed to melt so beautifully with my passion for slowing down life, taking it in, capturing the moments in your heart before they whisked away!

You won’t see me too far from my camera at any given time. We have a very close relationship.

I love capturing love, life, joy and togetherness through the lens.

But, we (my camera and I) are still in the beginning stages of our life together.

I have dreams of turning my hobby into a ministry and business someday soon!

 My hope is to be able to use my “future” business to raise money for adopting families by donating my proceeds to them to help bring their babies home.

Someday, I hope to go to  orphanages all over the world and capture the beauty of these precious waiting angels. So that others may see the photos and maybe….quite possibly see “their baby”, have their hearts opened up to bringing a child home forever.

I am learning.

 I am educating myself. And…..boy, am I practicing!!! I got LOTS of willing subjects! 🙂

These are some of the resources that I am using to teach myself!

My camera 
my lens
my external flash

My Books
Guide to Digital Photography (geared to my camera)
SLR Digital Photography Course
50 Keys to Better Photography

My software
Lightroom 3.2
Photoshop Elements 11

I also use a Myriad of websites and online seminars!

I know I have just scratched the surface with all there is to know about this amazing world of photography, but (as I teach my kids), we should never stop learning in life. 

I look forward to a lifetime of improvement.

Here’s to pursuing your dreams!!!

Please contact me If you’d like a photo session of your family for a very minimal cost as I work on building my portfolio!

Breathe it in and breathe it out
And listen to your heartbeat
There’s a wonder in the here and now
It’s right there in front of you
I don’t want you to miss the miracle of the moment
