I don't have the skills to say I'm "self taught," so I will just stick with "self teaching." This means, I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go. I have had a scrapbooking blog for quite some time now, and I don't like to fill up all my posts with pictures, so I figured I would start a connecting blog for photography. I will be sharing my journey of growing as a photographer with you and hopefully inspiring some of you as well.
I decided it's best to get to know my household, if you don't already!! I decided the best way to do this is by order of youngest to oldest. These are the people you will see the most. My kids are awesome and put up with my mammarazzi tendencies!! I just can't help taking pics of these beautiful faces!!!
This is Brooklyn... I am lucky to get her photographed with her hair in place and a shirt on. For the longest time, people wondered if she ever wore clothes above the waste. Here is one of those shots in question. She is, at this time, beginning to wear shirts more often than pants.
Next in line is Tracker... the hard to shoot Beagle. She is almost exactly the same age as Brooky and totally acts the same too.
Here is my little stud, Brent, who is such a cutie with those gorgeous brown eyes. I've always thought that brown eyes photograph the best.
Here is Rocket, our pitt bull aka the toy poodle, who hates having his picture taken. Just look at the way he's looking at me. Like I am totally annoying him!!
Little miss Tyler with one of her fairy outfits on. She is my biggest actress. She loves the camera and as you can see the camera loves her.
Here is my sweet Rylee. She is my photo assistant, but I get a lot of pics of her too. She's getting into photography and video making in a big way!!
Here is my oldest daughter, Raine. Unfortunately you won't be seeing any new pics of her, because she decided that my rules were not what she wanted and moved in with her bio-dad. She is 16 years old and has a lot of growing up to do, but I keep praying for her and one day she will come around again.
Here is my Hottie!! There is so much to say about him and it would take me forever to tell you everything, but over time I will do my best to share the details!! In this photo he is working on a tree house for the kids. He's a contractor, so our tree house is still unfinished, go figure!
Here I am!! This is me, well the side of me anyway. I have a hard time getting self portraits that are correctly focused. Well I have a hard time with all photos in the same way lol. I'm getting better and learning as I go, so hopefully my pictures will begin showing it over time!
