Something that I’ve been working on for the last few days ~ outdoor shots.  I am having some trouble getting the colors the way I want them and I just can’t seem to get that sun shot that I’m looking for!  I definitely see improvement, though…If anyone has any tips, feel free to comment!  I welcome ALL advice!!!

Well, I’ve been playing around with my camera for years, but I recently received some photography tips from a couple of SUPER talented photographer friends of mine (Jeni Friend and Becky Zientek) and I have barely been able to put my camera down ever since!  So, as I learn and grow as a photographer, I thought I’d take you all along for the ride. 🙂  For starters, here are a few pictures of my very photogenic children… 

  

 

 
  
So, I saw a beautiful photograph of some wittle newborn feet with mom and dad’s wedding rings hanging on their little toes…it was so sweet I just had to try it ~ My husband was at work, so I only had my ring, but it still turned out really sweet. 🙂  Here are my Sara-rai’s cute little feet… 

 

 And here are some photos from my first ever family photo session! 

Thank you Lauren and Louis for inviting me to take pictures of your beautiful family!!!

I am currently trying to gain experience and build my portfolio, so if you are living in the Leavenworth, KS area or Oklahoma City area (which is where we will be moving to in a few months) and you are interested in a free session, contact me at preciousprops@yahoo.com!

I am finishing up a couple of patterns to sell in my etsy shop, but I’m in need of some crocheters and knitters to test them!  You will receive a free pattern and all I ask in return is your feedback within 3 days of receiving it.  If you are interested in being a pattern tester, leave a comment with your email address and whether you knit or crochet.  I will need at least 4 testers (2 crocheters and 2 knitters)!  All patterns will be in newborn size.

Here are some pics of the items I will need tested:

First 4 photos were taken by Reighns Photography.  Thank you, Becky, for the amazing photos!!
