Hello 2017

The new year has gotten off to a VERY BUSY start. Work and life have been preventing me from doing a lot. There has just been so much to do. But I’m starting to get that balance back. Have started drawing more and reading again. Still taking pictures even though I don’t have quite as much time as I hoped I would.

I’m working on starting my photography business. I’d like to start using this to make some additional income on the side. I’m building my profile up currently but I’ll get that started soon. I think everyone should work towards their dreams and goals.

2017

Is definitely going to be a great year. After all, I have my wonderful husband to spend it with. And one thing we’ve decided this year is to get out and have fun. For my birthday we went to visit West Virginia, somewhere neither of us has visited. It was definitely a lot of fun, a nice little getaway.

We have another trip planned in two weeks for Joshua’s birthday. Another weekend trip up in the mountains. Should prove promising for some great pictures. Not going to say where we are going, though. You will have to wait until my next post. Sorry being away for so long. I promise I will try my hardest to post more pictures and more often.

 

Christmas modeling

Today’s post is going to be a short one. I have a end of the year post I’ll be sending your way. It certainly has been a BUSY year that is for sure. I’ll make a ‘highlights’ reel and post it to welcome in the new year. I look forward to it. There will be much more traveling this year. Starting with my birthday getaway next weekend to WestVirginia. Looking forward to it! Here’s some random Christmas photos. We were bored at one point so took some modeling shots.

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Throwback

I’ve been sorely lacking in the posts… This has definitely been one heck of a busy year. But it’s getting close to Thanksgiving now. There’s a lot of things to be thankful for but I will write another post about that with this year’s Thanksgiving pictures. It has been  a wonderful year this year. I honestly do not think I ever thought I would be in the place I am now. It’s ironic really, I used to always say ‘I better be married by 25’ and I turn 25 in January. And I’m loving married life. I honestly can not wait to spend the first Thanksgiving and Christmas with my husband.

Anyways like I said, I will have another current Thanksgiving post but for now how about a throwback to Thanksgiving from 2013. We spent the day at my sister’s farm. So here’s some pictures of my family enjoying themselves.

Black and White

The dynamic of a photo truly changes when made black and white. There appears to be so much emotion. I normally do candid shots but for this situation these photos were mostly posed. I plan on starting more portrait photography on the side as well. Broadening my horizon.
