Light and Lifestyle Photography

securedownloadNext to birth photography, my photographic passion lies in lifestyle photography. I love to capture the real moments in life, much more than posed smiling pictures. I love the image below, completely unposed, so much more than if I were to try to get them to sit up straight and smile at the camera. As a mom, these are the moments I want to remember with my children.

I am so excited to share an upcoming photography class taught my a friend of mine. I have been a member of the Clickin Moms forum for a few years now. Not only have I improved my skills in that time but I have also made a some great local friends, including Jennifer Bogle. Jennifer is teaching a breakout class at Clickin Moms starting next week. Jennifer has been an inspiration to me photographically.  Her images and use of light never fail to move me.securedownload
