for the love of brothers {columbus children's photographer}

I had so much fun with these two! I have met them both once in the past, in which they were a bit shy, but they definitely came out of their shell for this photo shoot, ready to smile and show off their skills (which included running & jumping & climbing). I truly enjoyed each minute with them. More to come!

I LOVE b&w photos
the timeless quality they portray
and there's something about them
that makes me feel peaceful and warm inside.

Here are a couple other shots I thought about entering into the b&w challenge at i heart faces.

bella. the dog princess.
rise and shine.
a special snuggle.

which one of the three did you like best?
(the chosen shot is in this post.)

thought I'd share a few 
of my all time favorites
just because,
i LOVE black & white.

my girl.

i heart faces photo challenge {black&white}

Photo Challenge Submission

Over at the AMAZING site, i heart faces, the March photo challenge is black and white. Here is my entry.

I love the innocence of it,
the timeless quality it holds.
Since Aiden is deaf and does not wear his cochlear implants while sleeping,
I (try to) wake him in the mornings by opening his blinds and letting the light shine in.
This specific day, the morning sun was especially bright,
and his recently adopted bunny "Hoppy" (from his 15 year old brother's younger days)
was still right there beside him.
who could resist this shot?

Sidney {Galena Senior Photographer}

She has the most beautiful blue eyes ... I could shoot them all day. I didn't have a lot of time with Sidney, but with the little time we did have together, you could tell she was a natural in front of the camera. I hope we get to spend more time together on my photography journey.

let's do 52! {SHARING}

For Paint the Moon's first week's theme

52 Week Project Photo Paint the Moon Photoshop Actions PSE

the theme choices were:


I chose SHARING.

wasn't sure what I'd capture between my three kids
but here are the two I debated entering.
(i actually had a third of K & A playing Wii together, but accidentally deleted it)

the first was shot in my basement = no good light = high ISO = a lot of noise.
So, not the best quality shot, BUT, I love everything about it.
both my boys received a set of drums for Christmas.
what you don't see is Aiden's little tiny set right next to Ryan's.
Aiden wanted NOTHING to do with his "small drums",
so his AMAZING big brother shared his.
i LoVe Aiden's face in this picture as he rocks it out.

this was my choice shot though.
aiden also got a tent for Christmas.
once i put it together, he immediately
gathered all his favorite "babies",
a book, a pillow, and a flashlight;
then read them all a story.

photography projects/challenges

I'm jumping into a couple different photo challenges - to do just that - challenge myself in which I will learn and grow as a photographer. 

(disclaimer to self - I am going to do my best to enter every.single.week and have many ... or even a few ... shots to choose from for each challenge.)

I'm excited to see what creativeness I have hidden under all these "analytical/financial" layers of mine and what level I can take my photography passion to.

The first project is a weekly challenge hosted by I Heart Faces. I have been following them on Facebook for a bit now and am learning SO much, but even more so, I LOVE oooing and ahhhhing at everyone's amazing shots! They are so welcoming and I just love what they're all about.

The next project I'm taking a part in is, Let's Do 52! that is hosted by Paint the Moon. I have recently found this site and have fallen in love. The author of this site, Annie, is inspiring and encouraging to say the least. Every week there will be two categories to choose from in which to shoot. 

I'm taking the leap and stepping out of my comfort zone, yet in the same breath, it feels perfect and I'm in crazy about everything photography. I was going to start my own project and post a "daily snapshot", but these will actually give me good direction and themes to work on each week, without the stress of posting a picture a day. 

I will use this blog as my project journal and post the pictures I submit for each project (in their own post) along with lessons learned. 

I LOVE comments.  Positive comments make me {smile}; constructive feedback is very welcome too - in fact I want to learn from your comments; ugliness is not allowed and I'll go back to what my mom (and I'm sure your mom) taught me, "If you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all." {grin}. thank you.

I'm an aspiring photographer, I'm here 

to share. to learn. to enjoy

to smile.

oh, and to have fun.

hope you do too.
