Thanks for stopping by our photo blog. We are two spunky, artistic, creative, fun-loving, intellectual, mostly sweet, "photojournalistas". We are passionate about photography. We're always snapping away, so don't mind us.
It's been a while since we've posted - blame it on the busy holiday season! But never fear, we will be posting much more in the new year!
Below are a few pics I shot in Columbus, Ohio of the lovely McCoy sisters. I've known these ladies for several years and they truly are a riot. I absolutely love their energy! I had so much fun at this shoot that I almost forgot I was on the clock!
While taking pictures of Erik, before he and Kathy's wedding, I whispered, "Think about Kathy." Instantly, his face lit up. While taking pictures of Kathy as she got dressed, I asked her to tell me about Erik. As she recalled stories about their past and pondered their future, her face was painted with a smile. At their wedding, love was definitely in the air. Not only was the couple truly in love, they both come from loving and lovely families. I enjoyed the couple, their family, and their friends from start to finish and I'm happy I had an opportunity to share in their special day. Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, on your new life!
As I drove through the countryside headed to a little town in Upstate New York, just south of Canada, I found myself in awe of nature's vibrant display. Peering through the window looking at what seemed to be rapidly moving scenery, I was reminded that seasons change. It is inevitable and constant. The funny thing is that just as seasons make transitions, we do too. While change can be difficult, depending on our outlook, it can be beautiful as well. As leaves turn from bold green hues to varied colors with magnificent depth, we know they are preparing to wither away into a new form -- thousands of dust particles on which we will eventually walk. In this transition they make way for new life that will come forth in a new season. What occurs in nature is but a reflection of what transpires in life.
For the past few weeks I have been pretty stressed about projects and deadlines at work. I complained about this to a friend who suggested that I go for a walk and capture some Fall foliage pictures - a project I have been meaning to do since September :-). Although I sensed that my complaints were bordering on annoying, I agreed to take his advice. After dragging my feet for a few hours, I finally powered down my Blackberry and picked up my camera bag. Boy am I glad I did! It's amazing what a few hours in a park can do for the soul! There is no better way to de-stress than to spend quality time with nature and your camera. I am so happy to have photography as a hobby . . . and friends who remind me of what brings me joy!
