About 2 weeks ago, my soon to be sister-in-law by marriage gave birth to her second child. I went to go visit the new addition, Ryan, a few days later and had an opportunity to take newborn & family photos. Newborns are so fun to photograph – especially when there’s an older sibling.

I’m taking a break from my studies to post a quick little entry. =)
This past weekend I went to Chicago for the weekend with Andy. He had a conference he had to attend so I thought I would tag along for a quick trip and do a few “touristy” things since I have never been. I really regret not taking my SLR – Andy was sure to rub it in – because the city had so many gorgeous views.
On Saturday, we went up to the Sears Tower (which is now known as the Willis Tower) and although we couldn’t see much through the rain clouds, we got lucky and caught a shot of a quick view as the clouds were moving.
FYI: Military can take a free tour of the tower!
Up at 6AM on a Saturday to take photographs for one of my previous clients.
I’ve been super excited for this shoot for the past couple of weeks and have been preparing for it for a while! I’ll probably end up posting up a preview here later.
Gosh, I feel so lucky to be able to take part in this opportunity….
Last week, I decided to take a 4 week course at the Washington Photography School to refresh my skills and to hopefully learn how to shoot better. To tell the truth, I’ve been feeling a little half-hearted about photography in the past few months and thought it would be the best way to reboot. After taking my first class in YEARS, I realized that I needed to go back to shooting for myself and not for just clients. It’s been soooo long since I’ve just stepped out the door with my camera to take photos for fun.
Take a look and let me know what you think! (These will be shown to my class as part as my assignment this week and critiqued.)
1. Saturated Photo – Soccer field @ UMD
2. Surrealism:Would you have known this was a door?
3. Parallel: Downtown Silver Spring’s newest addition (not quite sure what this building is used for yet, but that woman looks super relaxed.)
4. Positive + Negative Space: I took tons of photos of this little girl. She was too cute!
5. Negative + Positive space (again): The girl’s mother was adorable too.
6. Animal – This dog is about 8-9 years old & lives in my building.
7. Sports – Kids are always practicing at a nearby soccer field
8. Group Shot – Soccer team
…So how did I do?!?!
I have settled for a website! I realized that I did not have as much time as I thought I would to blog. =(
At some point, I may use this for my own personal blogging but it will be quiet around here for a little while.
I’m still working on the site and have a few exciting projects coming up within the next several weeks to months. So check it out when you can! Also, I’m currently in the process of editing little Henry’s photos from his first birthday this past weekend and those will be up shortly.
