Wow, finally my blog is up and running! This is so exciting. My journey continues…I am on the path to becoming a professional photographer. As a stay-at-home wife and mother, I have been given the opportunity to pursue this passion. I have had many blessings and challenges along the way, and I am learning each and every day. I hope to become a photographer much like those that inspire me, in hopes to someday inspire others. Last year I challenged myself with the 365 project, but unfortunately only made it to April. After getting pregnant, it became more difficult to stay on top of it. This year I have given myself a new challenge. I will take at least one picture a week of my kids. The great thing about this journey is that I am able to capture my children and who they are at this moment in time. There are so many times throughout my day that I wish my eyes were a camera– or better yet, a video camera– as I want to bottle up every moment I spend with them. It’s crazy how one moment something may happen that can make you so mad, and then you see this precious little face staring up at you and you just melt. I hope to capture some of the moments that melt my heart with this new project. My goal is for this adventure to really take off when the kids are school-aged. For now, session availability is limited. I am currently trying to build my portfolio, and I am looking for newborns and babies under 18 months. In the meantime, I will be living in the moment with my children in life, in love and in play.
