This past weekend marked the 18th birthday of my oldest daughter! We threw her a birthday party complete with our family and a couple of close friends. Because I love photography so much, no party is complete without a few 'photo booth' type pictures. It was super fun! I even got in the mix and did some 'jumping' pictures with her. They are memories I will treasure forever. And that is what this post is about. I am super awkward in front of the camera....well, let's be honest, in my regular life. I am, lets say, animated. I really love to laugh, and tend to get really excited about little things. It doesn't always look pretty in camera! haha! But you know what, THAT'S OK! I love these pictures. I REALLY wanted to create the PERFECT jump, hence my 'super concentration face' and I REALLY forgot to smile! These images made me laugh harder than if I had actually smiled. SO, the moral of the story, GET IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! even if you think you shouldn't be. These are memory making moments that you can't ever get back and if you are in the shot, you are preserved for all time, even if you have your 'super concentration face' on! And just think, in 200 years from now, my ancestors are going to have a good laugh over this <3
Happy 2015! I am so excited for this upcoming year! 2014 was amazing for me, so I am so excited to see what 2015 has in store!
It's TAX TIME, and yeah, that's lame....so to make it better, I am offering to COVER YOUR TAX on all print orders from now until January 31st! Yep, that's right, NO TAX on any print orders from now until January 31st! So now is the time to get those amazing pictures I took of your family hung on your walls!!!!!!
CAMERAS and COFFEE
I love love love my camera, and I love love love coffee, so why not combine the two! Last year I offered a free 'teaching' session on how to use your camera. It was so much fun that I thought I would offer it again. The date will be February 21st at 11:00am. I will be hosting this class at my home studio, so space is limited! Please call, email, text to secure your spot! Also, bring your camera and manual! All cameras are a little different, so I will be going over the 'fundamentals' of cameras...not so much the specifics of each model!
I just want to thank you again for all your support in 2014! I have ADORED getting to know you and your family and look forward to photographing all those special 2015 moments in your lives!!!!
