This weekend I had the pleasure of doing something I love. I’ll never be a pro, but getting to create images through photography will always be a passion of mine.
I’ve always loved taking pictures – since I was a little girl. In college I took a number of classes and I was even the darkroom TA for a semester or two. I never planned to pursue it seriously – it was just a love.
When I first started blogging, all I knew was that pictures helped tell the story. A visual is always a treat for a reader.
So I started taking pictures.
And when I outgrew the capabilities of my camera then, I saved up for a newer, better one.
And taking pictures every single day for four and a half years – well, you can’t help but improve a little. I don’t even think I realized it – but it’s like practicing the piano or free throws – you can’t help but get better!
This summer it was time for another camera. And my husband gifted me a lovely new body and lens for my birthday.
And now, getting to flex some design muscles (literally – some of those lenses are heavy!) is just a joy for me. Like baking or sewing or putting together a fabulous space. It’s a love.
And I’m grateful that I get to do what I love.
Here are a few sneak peeks for my weekend clients. Because, along with taking pictures, I’m pretty fond of them too.
