In 2016, I got to photograph quite a few couples. I was there for my sister's pregnancy & my niece's birth. I even got to do her newborn photos, which I learned wasn't the type of photography I would want to take on full time. Kudos to all the birth & newborn photographers out there; birth & newborn photography is hard ass work. I switched over to offering prints & products, which has been the best decision I could have made. I absolutely love seeing my work in print. And I know my clients love seeing their loved ones in photos on their walls & photo albums. <3
The images you see below are just a few of my favorites from 2016.
Once Christian finished school & Summer rolled around, we finally moved back home to be with John after he spent several months in Korea. Then we moved to Austin, where Christian started second grade & John started college & making videos. I got to photograph my cousin's second pregnancy, which was super awesome since I took photos of her first pregnancy. We visited with family in Georgia for the first time since moving to Texas in Summer 2011.
I am ready for 2017. I am ready to meet new people & create amazing art. I am ready to check off the few goals I have on my photography bucket list. I am ready to print my work more often. Hopefully, I put myself out there a bit more in 2017 because I know amazing things will happen when I do.
A few blog posts worth going through:
Different camera settings, different macro lengths, different angle, but the same exact plant.
The top photo is taken with my regular lens. The bottom photo is taken with a macro filter of the same exact flower. The bottom photo isn't perfect, but I'm still practicing with the filters. Practice makes perfect.
