Photography is SO MUCH FUN!

Sunday, February 13, 2011
So my last post was about my I Heart Faces entry. It was fun to enter and fun to look at the other entries and their blogs and appreciate all the talent and creativity out there. I never expected to win anything, but I liked the subject for this week's challenge - hearts - and was just excited to participate. I entered on Monday and all week I kept checking back in and looking at the other entries, but because I so wasn't planning on winning anything, I didn't check back in on Saturday morning when they announce the winners. My good friend Nan had to call me and tell me that I'd gotten 8th place!

So here's the photo, if you haven't seen it before. And this is what the judges, the fabulous Bobbi+Mike said about my photo, "beautiful color, nice use of a natural prop. simple and not contrived."

Thanks to everyone and their nice comments! I feel re-inspired by all the gorgeous photos I saw this week. And all the beautiful faces.

I Really Do Heart Faces

Monday, February 7, 2011

For quite a while, I've been following a cool blog called I Heart Faces. They have a weekly photo challenge, and I've been tempted to enter it more than once, but just never took the time to figure out how to enter before. The challenge this week is "hearts", so I went out yesterday and took a bunch of heart photos of my lovely live in model. And they turned out pretty nice, but I just kept thinking about this photo that I took in the fall. It has an accidental heart in it and that just felt like more fun.

Anyway, so here it is, my first attempt at I Heart Faces. It's kinda fun to finally participate. I love looking at the other entries, head on over there and check 'em out!

Jumpin' Back In

Friday, February 4, 2011
 Man, I've been so bad about keeping up with this blog lately! I guess that wicked busy fall and Christmas season kinda wore me out on blogging, photography, scrapbooking, or anything like unto it. I've had a nice long lull the last few weeks, but it's definitely time to jump back in. My good friend Kori had a baby a couple of weeks ago and I got to go take his pictures. Such a cutie, and such a good, good baby.


I got to try out my new Tai Pan Trading pot - in't it pretty? And the baby's not bad either....

Anything we did to him, he just slept through it.
So it was fun to play with a newborn again and I have 3 more sessions scheduled over the next week. Now if I can just keep blogging 'em.
