Hi y’all! I am finally back from my very long hiatus…in fact, it was more like a hibernation. XD The past couple of months have been really busy. My family and I went through a really hard time, but God sustained us with His grace and we are so thankful for our supportive friends and family. Now, summer has arrived on the farm and I am back!

Three of our pear trees have been blooming and the other day I thought I’d go out and snap some pictures of it. In the days when I was only a nature photographer, I used to hunt down every single tree or flower I could find with blossoms. My subjects now are mainly people, and while I love portraits, it’s always fun to shoot pure flowers now and again.
Whether you’re shooting people, pets, or petunias (how’s my alliteration?), taking pictures indoors can be confusing and annoying. Some days the pictures may turn out great, and other days…not so much. I used to hate my pictures that I took inside, but I discovered in time that there as an art to it, like everything else.

When my Granddaddy decided to visit his sister, my Aunt Susan, in TN last month, I asked if I could join him and go see the farm that he grew up on in the sixties.
I think all of us in the industry have had this problem. We do a shoot, rave to our clients about their photos, edit and then deliver. And a few days after delivery, we get an email from the client. It goes something like this…
I have been taking some photography courses recently and so naturally I wanted to put into play some posing methods I’d been learning when Miss Hannah came over. She was the perfect model to practice on!
Wow! I think this is the LONGEST post on this blog! There are a TON of pictures, so kudos to you if you make it to the end!
A picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words, but perhaps I should give a little more than that. A few weekends ago, my family and I went down to Amelia Island off the coast of Florida for a little rest and relaxation before the New Year. Continue reading
Two days after Valentine’s day, Jonathan – a young, struggling entrepreneur, flew in from metropolitan Calgary, Alberta to a small New England town. And why? To meet the girl who would one day become his wife.
