Uh Oh

So Sorry!

So I was thinking today "When was the last time I checked my blog?"

And I realized I really could not remember.

And that is bad, very bad.

So I do apologize.

Unfortunately I have been scrambling to finish up this semester.

I have two weeks left so I probably won't be posting much until it's over.

I am prepping for my class finals and my photo final.

This Saturday is our last studio shoot and I definitely need more time.

I hope everyone in the states had a great holiday and those not in the states, I hope you had a great week!

Stay safe everyone!

See you soon!

Family Shoots

I had two family photo shoots this past weekend.

They went quite well in my opinion.

One family requested pictures of just the kids, the other brought along their two yorkshire puppies.

They were both great learning experiences.

I learned that with kids, I need to work quickly as they can get easily bored and tired and loose focus.

Even though it's information I already knew, it was an experience I would not trade for the world.

The second shoot with the puppies was also a learning experience.

Dogs in a photo shoot are much like children.

Work fast to keep their attention and best behavior.

I hope to be able to share pictures with you soon.

Have a great week everyone!!

Hey Everyone,

This post is for all my fellow photographers.

BlogHer is sponsoring a Tamron Lens Giveaway!

It is for the new Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5 - 6.3 Di-II VC LD Aspherical IF Macro for Canon or Nikon.

Whew, that was a mouthful.

So follow the link below and enter, enter, enter. 

Well, only if you want a free lens which so far, has received pretty good reviews.

Most common being that it is truly a versatile lens with excellent (15x) zoom.

Not to mention it is compact for what it is.

There are five different bloggers participating in the giveaway and from my understanding, you are allowed to enter in each one and twice!!!

Good Luck!!!

Fun Filled Fun

So here are some of the very first shots I took with my new 50 mm lens.

It's definitely been a challenge adjusting to the fact that it is fixed.

No free rides with this one.

No, now I have to do the movin' and the groovin' with this lens to get the pictures I want.
(That line so didn't come out as smooth as it sounded in my head.)

Nope, it just made me sound like a nerd.

Haha, oh well, a casualty of blogging my thoughts as they come.

Have a great Veteran's Day for all those of you in the States that get the day off!

For those that are not in the States or don't get the day off, have an even better Thursday than those lucky kids that do!


Because We Can

Hello Everyone!!!

Hope you are all finding yourselves well this fine week of November.

I thought I'd take a second to tease you with one of my favorite pictures to date taken with my lovely new 50mm lens.

I'll be back later with some others just for fun and well because I can.

If any of you want to share any of your favorite photos, please do!!


(remind me to tell you a quirky story about this cat later)

Engagement Practice Shoot

The following pictures are from the practice engagement shoot I did with my friends. They'll be getting married next year but any chance I get to practice with them I take.

These are edited the way the bride to be likes them.

So the photo shoot from this past Saturday turned out pretty well.

I definitely got lucky with costuming because my models brought some clothes that worked well with some of the stuff I brought.

I also got lucky because I did the make up on my models and since I had rehearsed it the night before, it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.

Not to toot my own horn, but some of my crew members were asking if there was a make up artist there when they saw my girls.

Yes, I am proud of myself.

But anyway, I'm glad to know that in a pinch I would be able to pull something off in regards to make up (so long as it wasn't too elaborate of course).

Well, i'm sorry I won't be able to give you a sneak peek at the images.

Shooting the models was only half the shoot.

The other half still needs to get done.

And then I have to edit them together.


But what I can give you a sneak at is the practice engagement shoot I did this weekend with two friends of mine.

So enjoy!! And as always, feedback is much appreciated.

Have a great week!!!
