Finding Back My Zing

 As the photography laid quiet for a long time, I had grown scared of being overwhelmed by it. I also grew scared to go it alone as Jennifer had become one kick ass partner in crime. And although I hate not having her by my side, I have accomplished two session this week without her.

I am working hard to find back my creativity. I am relying on staring at image after image I find online and in magazines. I am looking at things that had inspired me prior to Jen getting sick. And for new ideas that will unleash my brain.

Monday, it was my surroundings, an adorable little lady who wore clothes to die for. Yesterday, the wind, hair, and a skirt on a new mommy who looks fantastic having given birth so recently. As i watch the weather, hoping for a light rain to work in, I hope for even more creativity. Kids splashing in puddles and someone willing to play in the rain is not out of the question for me and my camera.

I have stories to tell through my camera again. And I am hoping to find many who will allow me to get my business launched again and tell their story. Hopefully in time, Jen can join me again. … but until then it is just me, my camera, and hopefully some creativity. I need you to hire me. Not only for financial reasons, but for my love of camera and my need to be creative again.

 

 I am finding back my zing!

…..an Avery story

The last time I took Avery’s pictures was February 2017.

And boy has she grown a ton.

She loves to sing with her mommy “Let It Go” and “Girl On Fire.” And she keeps herself moving so much, I find I have a hard time keeping up.

 

Thank you Beining Nursery & Landscaping for allowing us to taking pictures at your beautiful location. And Bailey’s Blossoms  for the flowered skirt and red and black plaid dress.

Tabitha is one of my daughter’s friends from high school. Over the last few years I have watched as her family has grown size. A couple weeks ago, Tabitha and her husband Ryan have added Avery to their family. I enjoyed meeting her and playing with the boys!

Bryant has grown to like his little sister.  But still is very much mommy’s baby boy.

Brayden is mommy’s little helper.  He met me at the door, and showed me my way in.  When I asked him if I could take his new sister home with me….he said “Yes.”  But to his credit, he was distracted by his movie on tv so he may not know what he agreed to at the time.

And sweet Avery seems to have her days and nights messed up, so she slept most of the time I was there.  She resembles her big brothers while still looking like a little princess.

I think these three will be the best of friends as they grow and into their adult lives.
