Life... it consumes
So, I have not posted in awhile (obviously). Things have been pretty hectic for me. Things were going really great with my photography, then my camera broke (no, I did not break it. It broke, stopped working. I didn’t drop it or anything :p) in the middle of a wedding! Thank goodness there was another photographer… I still felt horrible! But, it all worked out… finally I got...
Oh, my achin' heart...
You know that expression “my heart aches for…” well, as of late my heart has been aching for two things in particular. · Photography · Travel There is seriously a deep, expansive pulsing ache in the center of my chest.

I had that moment! Yes, *that* moment in life where you know you are doing what you meant to be doing and everything in life is coming together. I am so incredibly happy right now! Most things in my life are pretty darn good. I have an amazing husband, a roof over my head, a full-time job (non-photography related), great family and friends! I mean, I’m not rolling in cash or anything, but...

So, like most photographers I was stumped with what type of camera bag I should get! There are so many choices! What type of bag for starters? Standard camera bag? Backpack? Big camera bag?

Are you a professional photographer that carries...

Photography Clubs part 2
The first meeting I attended, a professional family photographer in the area spoke about her business but focused on studio photography. She spoke about posing, keeping children entertained, etc. It was so amazing to her someone speak about my passion. To sit in a room full of people who shared my passion! We have had a great many speakers, I have heard people speak about a myriad of things:...
Photography Clubs part 1
Now, I know that photography clubs are not for everyone… but for those of you willing to give photo club a try - I recommend it!

I have learned a great deal, had many great opportunities that I would not have normally be able to, have met so many interesting...
