Mine is the left, my sister's is the right. I love the difference in these photos. An overcast and rainy Washington winter versus a snowy Utah winter. We are only on the second post of this project and I'm having so much fun doing this together.

{F} Family Session

I had such a great time at this big family session. I have to admit, I was a little nervous when I was hired to do a session for this family. There were 7 kids, and 5 adults in all. The weather was freezing cold- 35 degrees to be exact, but there was no wind, the perfect amount of cloud cover and most important- NO rain! All the kids were very, very well behaved and we got through the session pretty darn quick... I was really impressed! I love the fun waterfront locations in this area, and this is one of my favorite spots. Thanks again to some amazing clients who make my job so much fun!

The 2011 Project

With one project finished, I'm on to the next. My sister and I will have the same theme for a photo a couple times a month and will post our photos side by side. We live in different states, so it will be fun and interesting to see what our different ideas and perspectives on each theme will be. I love photography projects, and it will be fun to have a partner in crime on this one. It's a great way to keep me being creative and it gets me out photographing. Looking forward to what this next year in photos will be!

Week #52- the final photo

My final photo is in honor of the love I have for my photography equipment. I wouldn't be where I am without it :) Missing in the photo is my fabulous new nikon D90, and new 50mm f/1.8 lens, which I had to use to take this photo. I have been fortunate enough to be able to work on building my photography gear this year. Also included are a few vintage things that were given to me from an amazing friend. I can't wait to have my own studio/office one day to display a fun collection of vintage cameras and lenses. This Minolta was the first.

It's been an amazing year and I'm so glad I was able to do this 52 week project. It's fun to look back through all the photos and see what I've accomplished within photography and my personal life in the past year. I'm looking forward to the new project I'm starting soon with my sister, it's going to be a lot of fun.

A big thanks to all my fabulous clients, mentors, friends, and family for an amazing year. I truly appreciate all of your love and support.

Week #51

I have a love for locks of all kinds.

Week #48

Sail boats on the Columbia River. I would say- these people are crazy, it was 35 degrees when I took this picture, but I guess I'm just as crazy- I had just finished a family session with 7 kids and 5 adults :)
