Holy cow......where did the last year go?? Really, what happened to 2008. I am completely convinced that the older I get the years just pass by twice as fast as they used to. 2008 has been a fabulous year for me, really it has! I have learned sooooo much since I purchased my first DSLR camera last Dec. I have always been a very artistic person and have really been a jack of all trades when it comes to art. But I have finally found my medium, the most perfect art for me. Photography has not only captured my attention, focus and drive, it has captured my soul. My camera has become an extension of my eyes and mind. I see the world through a photographers eyes now. My grandmother is an amazing photographer and I have always admired her beautiful photographs. Since I have become completely obsessed by photography myself we have had a handful of conversations about seeing the world through a photographers eyes. We both have said how hard it is to even drive down the street on most days without seeing something that is worthy of a picture. Whether it be a beautiful sky, an old barn, or frost on a tree branch early in the morning. The world we live is amazingly beautiful, and I am so blessed that I have found a true passion that allows me to capture so many moments of beauty. And it is just so awesome to be able to capture amazing memories for my clients that will help to tell their life stories. I often tell people if you really want to appreciate the world we live in, view it through a camera. You'll start seeing things you never would have really noticed before.
And because I too have many favorites from 2008 I thought I would leave you with a handful of those pictures that moved me in some way. I know I've left a bunch out but I just grabbed some quick. There is something in all of these pictures that made me smile and made my heart happy. It reminds me of a favorite quote of mine. "There are many pictures that will capture your eye, but only a few that will really capture your heart. Those are the ones to pursue, those are the ones worth keeping."
Well, if I really had to choose just one, it would be this one of my baby and my husband!
I love soooo many things about this picture. I love her messy hair and her chubby arms, I love how their lips lined up crooked, I love how she's pinching his cheek, I love how her shoe is untied, I love how their eyes are closed, I love the colors, and I love that it's my two most favorite people in the world!! I love, love, love it .......captures my heart every time I look at at!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
