Photography, Photography, Photography.....

I am obsessed with PHOTOGRAPHY!!! I can spend hours at a time browsing web sites, doing research on new techniques, watching tutorials and so on. I love how I can capture the true essence of a person in a photo. It's those memories in that split second that are captured and treasured forever.

I love looking at God's creation and picturing in my head what beautiful artwork that would make. I love thinking of new ways to take that perfect portrait of a friend or family. It's those memories that I've captured that will last a lifetime.

November 27, 2010 - Christmas Wreath

I love making crafts. A few years ago I made a beautiful wreath for our front door. So for my photo of the day I decided to let in the natural light and take a photo!

November 26, 2010 - Christmas Tree Cutting Day

Today we went to cut down our Christmas tree. We've been going to Blake's since 2008 as our new family tradition! It is such fun, we go on a wagon to the tree farm, walk to find the perfect tree and get to cut it down ourselves. Of course I bring along the camera to get photos of our fun day. I so enjoy doing this with my family.

November 22, 2010 - Is it Christmas yet??

Christmas is ABSOLUTELY my favorite holiday of the year! I love the music, beautiful snow(only at this time) and the feeling of joy and hope in the air. I love spending time with my family and hoping the traditions get passed on to my son and his children and to Melanie & Megan and so on. The Christmas decorations are always lovely to admire and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. Above all, it is the time to celebrate the birth of Christ! I am so grateful that He is my savior!

So today I decided to get a jump start on the decorating and completed the fireplace. Just love the look of the glistening lights and stockings hung with love by the fire!
