  • The January Snapshot

Wow!! I should have been more clever in my Friday post and said “See ya next year everyone!!”. I tend to always think about those one liners a day too late.  One thing I DID think about ahead a time was how I wanted to CHANGE my monthly “Goals” post series for 2012. It has become a very common trend for photographers to blog about their “Goals” so I want to change it  up a bit.

  • Happy New Year!!

yesterday that I have hit the age where I don’t really care to be any older. 23 was nice…. why not stay 23? Forever!  24 just sounds so old!

Now I’m married and only one year away from being 25?!! That’s halfway to 50!!!!!  Time is flying! And I’m loving life. Really, I’m so thankful for my life and for all that God has given me. He has blessed me in so many ways and I just hope that when people see me, they see Him because nothing else in life matters.

After a while I realized that my color really does define a lot of my “style”. I like it BRIGHT!! And BOLD!  I don’t have a vintage-muted-faded- look. However, I do LOVE the coloring of film and there are times that I grow jealous of those photographers that can achieve those soft, muted tones. I grow so jealous sometimes that I find myself playing with presets to see if I can mirror their look…. but then I walk away from the computer and
