  • Welcome to my blog!

    Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you find a few resources on my blog that will inspire you to create beautiful things with your photography. Please feel to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to be featured on my site as a photographer or vendor.

The style in photography right now seems to lend itself to couture dresses and farm animals galore. These things sure do make for beautiful images (after all, who doesn’t want to see photos with beautiful gowns and adorable little chicks and lambs), but not everyone has access to these amazing props and outfits. I was feeling kind of discouraged by all of this because, frankly, I don’t have the resources available to me to have these amazing props and dresses. So, I decided to step back and take some photos of my daughter to see if I could capture an emotion without any extra stuff. I know these photos aren’t perfect, but they sure do resonate with me. They capture everything about her. Most of you who follow my work never see her smiling in her photos (a creative choice on my part) but those images really don’t showcase her amazing personality. She truly is one of the funniest six year olds I know. This photo shoot was exactly what I needed…to help remind me that photography isn’t about the expensive dresses or the adorable animals. It really is about capturing something beyond that. So I encourage you today, to not worry about all of the props and dresses you don’t have. You still can create amazing images without them.

Free Photoshop Tools

I have been feeling extra springy this month and decided to change my website to reflect my desire for soft, pastel colors. In my search for various things to add to my site, I found these amazing free watercolor PNGs for Photoshop. There are so many amazing downloads on the angiemakes.com website. She even has a free WordPress template! I used a few of her PNGs on my site on the homepage. The floral wreaths being my favorite. Take a look around her site and see if there is anything that might be if interest to you! I love supporting artists who give of their time and talents to help others.
