I *love* photography...

We'll re-visit the caption contest as soon as Uncle Kevin chimes in....

Have I mentioned ever that I love photography? I could spend hours viewing other photographers work.. there are more than just a few.. AMAZING photographers.. some that i happen to know personally, some that I know from the web, and some that I've just happened across and my jaw falls open in amazement at how talented these people are...

I want to be a full-time photographer.. I love everything about it.. I love to capture moments, sweet moments, moments you may have never remembered had you not had it on film. I love to take an ordinary photo and make it "extraordinary"..

I also love to capture photos of my children, but most of my captures are just plain ol, "momma with a camera" pictures.. and that's ok.. I just want to remember the moment and then there are times that I want to go the extra mile with my kiddos.. and take really nice photos..

but mostly they are just plain ol everyday life pictures.. perhaps like this one...of Devin with every pair of my underwear around his neck... (I was folding laundry, I don't give them underwear to play with)
or perhaps this one of Devin & Macy sitting together, eating Cheerios so nicely
or one of my fav's this week of Devin giving me his best Cheesy smile:but if given the chance to photograph a gorgeous Senior girl, taking my time to make sure that all my settings are correct, my lighting is perfect, taking the time to edit the photos .. this is what you'll get...
or even this:or this:
I think i've found my niche.. I loved photographing this senior.. Thanks Sami for permisison to use your photos..

*Fabulous* pics! It's amazing what a great photographer can do... with a model who will actually hold still and follow directions! :)

Hope to see you tomorrow - if not, Sunday for sure!
