Stepping Away – One Frame Wednesday


The past few weeks I house sat for my parents while they were someplace MUCH warmer than Wisconsin ! I took my camera along, but didn’t shoot much, just snapped at random things, and had fun with the light that shined in my parents home. It was great to get away, reclaim my life from work. Photography is such a large part of my life, that sometimes I forget to slow down, take a deep breath and look at the world around me.  I also start to think of photography as a job, and it gets to be work instead of a dream come true.

So …. every once in a while I step back, take a break from photography and the work of it all. And remember why I am doing this, and reclaim my life. I came back from this little break so refreshed, and flowing with ideas! Creativity is again flowing, and I can’t stop it. I LOVE IT!

This photo is of the letter ” d ” I bought for my parents one Christmas – I ADORE This letter, and the light that poured in through the windows.

Remember to take a step back, take a deep breath and reclaim your life !

Community over Competition
I have been thinking a lot of this lately with all the meeting of new photographer friends over the past few months. I have honestly never thought of other photographers as competition - we are our biggest supporters. We are each others cheerleaders, friends, shoulders to cry on and people to vent our frustrations. Let me tell you a story of how a dear friend and photographer talked me off the ledge. We just met for a drink a few hours before this and I sent her a message on Facebook telling her that I am terrified that I am not good enough and that I am a failure. Why was I thinking this? Because there are photographers popping up all ove ...
Confession Friday / Traveling
As I sit on my couch and relish in the Kittie cuddles and the relaxation that comes with being home, I think about the misconception of the traveling photographer. I got home from 2 weeks of travel that consisted of 1 wedding, 5sessions, 6 flights, and hours of travel in the car - along with 4 days of reconnecting with Justin. In between those travels I had 2 days home filled with returning emails, editing, invoicing, cleaning, mail, going to the bank, 1 wedding and 1 engagement session. Then it was off on a plane again ... Life as a photographer may seem glamorous and beautiful, yes we get to travel to awesome places and experience wonderful ...

What I find important to photograph at weddings.
I got to thinking after talking with a fellow photographers Mother one day while working at my night job - we got to talking about her daughters photographer and what she was angry about with him/her. She was very passionate about the fact there weren't more than 2 photographs of her and her husband - or any dear relatives at all. This made me think about my own photography - what do I find to be the most important thing I like to photograph at weddings. And to some this might surprise - but to me it's exactly how what I find the most very important thing about the wedding. The People! Yes the people - the bride and groom, the parents, ...
