“You learn to see by practice. It’s just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can’t be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.” – Eliot Porter

I will be married! I am getting both very excited and very anxious. It has been a busy couple months for me, and I will be glad to be married and honeymooning in Hawaii soon! As much as I have found this to be an exciting time in my life, I will be ok when things settle down and I am not devoting most of my free time to wedding planning anymore…..and can get out and take more pictures. I have missed being more active in photography, and will be so excited to have the time to take more pictures and soon have a new website. So many good things happening, and I feel so lucky.

Here are few pictures I took on a quick garden break from wedding planning:

Now it is Spring!!

April 11, 2010

It is a very exciting time for pictures. Despite how busy I have been with grad school, wedding planning, and work, I have gotten out to take some new pictures. I am really enjoying all of the flowers that are starting to come out. I am also excited to be out again, shooting pictures of horses. It’s nice when the light and the air start to change. There is a real freedom in it.

Is it Spring yet?

So this post only has a little to do with pictures – Mike (my super duper fiance) and I booked our honeymoon. We are going to Hawaii! I am very excited about getting some time off from work and going somewhere I have never been. I am sure there will be ample opportunities for pictures. I am already starting to research the places that would be fun for us to visit and would make for some good pictures. So exciting!

Website Update

February 20, 2010

So, my website is officially down, with a shiny, new holding page put up in its place. My husband-to-be, Mike, and a friend of his are working on a redesign for my site that will hopefully make it not only look even better and more professional, but also allow me to edit the content with ease. I am very excited about the prospect of being able to change the galleries on my own and keep my site updated. It’s bad when your “about” page says you are 24 years old and you are actually 28 (LOL)! It may be a couple months until my new site is up, but I know it will be well worth the wait. In the meantime, I am continuing to build my portfolio, re-write my website content, and think out the galleries that I would like on my site.

Change can be exciting. Oh, yes.

Table Top

February 16, 2010

Lately, I have been experimenting with some “table top” studio shots. I am trying to learn more about studio lighting and figured the best way to really understand lighting is to practice on the small scale. Here are some of my newer experiments (more on my flickr site):
