Boys Will Be Boys

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take advantage of the warm light streaming in my bedroom window.  I grabbed up my toddler, handed him in a book and plopped in down in the middle of the bed.   In less than thirty seconds he had looked at the book, slammed it shut, slid off the bed and disappeared.  He is a busy boy!  A few minutes later I heard a clunking noise as he came toddling back, dragging his older brother's toy shot gun.  He proceeded to shove it up on my bed and climb back up for a more boy themed photo shoot.

Capturing The Daily

As a mother I love to take photos of my children, and that is what motivated me to persuade my husband to get me a dslr camera.  At the time I thought having a better camera would = capturing better photos.  I quickly realized that better photos evolved not from owning a better camera, but from actually knowing how to use a better camera.  The more I read and learned about photography in general and that pesky triangle of iso,aperture, and speed, and the more I practiced and applied what I'd been reading the better my photos looked. 
 I proceeded forward with a goal of capturing beautiful images of my family, so that I could capture the daily, whether it be an escaping toddler, playing with Barbie, lessons on the ipad, a nap in the crib, snuggling on Mommy's bed or reading a book....daily moments and memories preserved.   I now offer my services to you, in capturing your special moments, but I will also be sharing here, with you, the things I have learned and am learning along my journey of capturing the moments in beautiful images.

I'd be delighted to have you join me as I share what I'm working on and learning!
