From then to now.

Sunday, December 14, 2014


I have been going through some old photos and trying to slowly store/delete them off from hard drive to free up some space on my computers. I came across that photo of Wyatt at my moms house from 2011. I remember being so proud at myself for taking it. I loved the dramatic effect and the way the light bounced off his face. I love the little details of my moms flower arrangement sitting on her table. Everything about it was the reason I was growing to love photography.

Still to this day, I find myself looking for the light but not like how I did back then. I challenged myself then. I carried my camera around with me everywhere and tried to capture photos that meant something too me. Now days I quickly pull out my cell phone and snap some nonsense photo and move on with out really thinking about the shot.

So I dusted my big girl camera off stuck it in the diaper bag and went on with my day telling myself that I need to pull it out and take photos like I use too and I did.

I love that photo I took of baby Guns. The look in his eye as he is study me. The detail of his coat zipper and his little hand holding on the his car seat.

I know that I said I was going to do the 365 days in photos for my YES YEAR but I think that I might be over achieving that a little so I am actually going to do a portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2015. That can include just a photo of Gunner, Wyatt, me or the husband and/or the pets. Or one of all of us or a mixture. Whatever feels good at that moment. But I think that I will be able to stick to that a little bit better than a 365.

My goal is to also not use my cell phone if I don’t have too. I will officially start January 1st but I am going to start carry my big girl around to get a feel for it.


I have a lot that I want to accomplish in 2015. Here's to hoping I don’t give up.

  1. What a beautiful portrait of your child. You photograph with emotion which to me, produces the best kind of images. Keep it up mama!
