Yes, I am behind on posting this! 🙂 It was a rough year for me personally, and I was in a funk with my photography for most of it. However, I did manage to take some photographs I love.
“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees” – Henry David Thoreau
Oh, be still my heart….to see my beautiful girls with their daddy. He loves them SO very much…and I could just sit back and watch them all together, all day long. That quote is one of my very favorites, and I do believe this series of photographs fit it perfect for sure. I took these at our land, which we hope to build our dream home on soon…we are trying….in the process of finding the right builder. 10 acres of peace & quiet, where they feed the deer….get dirty, ride bikes…..explore…and just be kids. A simple life in the Texas Hill Country. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Rylee turned EIGHT in December, how can that be?? I had her yesterday, right…lol?! I do believe she will be passing me up in height for sure. I wanted to take some special photographs of her, since she rarely lets me take any when I have my camera out, plus she recently got some super cute pink glasses! 🙂 Oh, and I curled her hair for these…!! 🙂
She is gorgeous.
She is smart.
She is shy.
She is an artist.
She is a beautiful soul.
I am still in shock, that my photo was chosen. A goal or dream of mine has been to have a photograph published in a magazine. I decided to submit four photos, the category I decided to try was Original Art or Image/Quote Pairings. The photography magazine is One Twenty-Five…which is fairly new, but awesome, so glad to be apart of such talent. Actually, I have a few friends that have articles written in this October issue. Hopefully next time, I will be brave enough to submit for an article, etc.
When trying to take this photo of myself holding the magazine, I had put my camera on my tripod and it fell off and hit the ground…I could have died. It scared me so bad, for my camera and lens are not cheap…and I also have a photography conference I will be attending in two weeks….so I am BEYOND happy that it is okay. So I had Rylee take the one of me using my remote timer. It took three tries..but we got one. Obviously, I am SO EXCITED about this, can’t you tell…lol!!
