Project Announcement!!

Hi everyone!  On Friday I went live on my facebook page for a very brief moment to make my Project announcement.  If you missed it, you can click on over to my facebook page and watch it here.  Go easy on me, I am extremely awkward in front of the camera, that’s why I am usually behind the camera!

You don’t want to watch my awkward video?  Don’t blame you, neither do I lol.  OK, I will tell you!  My next project will be a book!!  I will be exploring, photographing and doing research on some of my favorite old abandoned buildings and homestead’s.  My goal is to find out the history and stories these old places hide and share them.  Have you ever drove by an abandoned structure and just imagined the stories that lie in those walls?

I will be sharing this project developement right here on this blog and also through my facebook page.  So make sure to click on follow so you can get updates!

Here’s a couple pictures taken at the old building where I made my live announcement.  And to give you a little laugh, a couple pictures of what I got into while shooting!

First, here is the building I made my announcement in.  I did show Some of it in the video, so check out my facebook page if you want to see the inside.

Here is an old tire off from a buggy that is in the field behind the building.

While shooting pictures of the buggy I must of found myself in a briar patch.  While walking back to the car a noticed I had some extra passenger’s.


The thing’s we get into trying to get the perfect shot!

Cold

Hi there!

If you know anything about Michigan you know that this time of year is a crapshoot when it comes to the weather.  I have asthma and lung problems that are aggravated by the cold weather, so when it gets cold I’m stuck inside.  So what does a photographer that works outside suppose to do when they can’t get outside??  Well there is a couple of options, 1st you do what I call “Drive by Shootings”.  This is where you pretty much drive around looking for fun things to shoot either from the car, or with a quick get out of car shoot and get back in before you can’t breathe.  I did a bit of this yesterday, but because it was warm yesterday I was able to get out longer and actually walked down the beach.  It was in the 50’s.  Today the high so far has reached 32 degrees Fahrenheit, too cold for a walk on the beach.  So what to do?  Second option edit photographs!  Yes this is what I like to spend my time doing when the days are too bad to get outside.  Go back through your archives, edit some images you never got to or edit some you did before and see how you can change or improve them.  Or maybe even start a clean slate and make a composit image, this is one of my favorite creative things to do.  My third option work on your online stuff, update the website make a few posts on social media or write-up a blog post!  This is my option choice for today, aren’t you glad?  You get to read my ramblings, lol!

So, that’s where I am at today.  With any luck the weather will be warmer tomorrow, as I am hoping to go live on my Facebook page with my special announcement on my new project!!!  So make sure to check out the Facebook page here and hit that like button so you will know when I go live with my announcement!  Also, cause there’s a good chance I’ll be working on it too, go here to check on my web page.  And lastly, make sure you sign up to follow me here and get blog post updates.

That’s it for now, I am off to do some more editing and updating 🙂  Make sure to check back for that announcement!! In the meanwhile, I will leave you with a few images I took yesterday, enjoy!

Getting Started

Hello!

Today is the day I will be starting my new project! So excited!!  I haven’t announced what it is yet, but will be doing that soon.   So make sure to check back for that.  But the sun is shining and it is warm enough to get outside and shoot, so that’s what I am going to do.  

Ok, I’m off to shoot.  Just wanted to shoot you a quick update.  Have a wonderful day! 

Welcome

Welcome to my blog! Here I will be sharing my adventures in photography, good and bad! I will keep you updated on my project and special photo shoots and anything else I would like to share. If you ever have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email or send me a message through my face book page or website.  I will be starting a project soon, so check back for the announcement on that.  It is something I am pretty excited about!

So a little about me, I am a married mother to 3 wonderful children.  I dedicated most of my life to my husband and children as a stay at home mom.  I was introduced to photography at a very early age as my dad was a photographer and many a times I was his model!  So, now that my children are older it was time to think about me.  I needed something for myself, a career.  So I decided to do something I have always enjoyed and did a lot of, shoot pictures.  So that is exactly what I what I do!

That’s it for now, but stay tuned as there will be lots more to come in the future!  And don’t forget to check in for the announcement of my next project!!
