A little about this image: I'm continuing to try out new things with my Project 365. Here's a new skill I have been working on. It's called "panning". I tried to follow Aubrey while she was moving with a really slow shutter speed...all while hoping to maintain focus. I wanted to capture motion. I think it's kinda cool:)

Project 365 week nine https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2015/4/project-365-week-nine Project 365---Week nine

As I have entered into a new month, my theme challenge has changed too.  This month is dappled little---uneven, speckled light.  In most cases,  I run from this type of light....but so far...its been fun playing with it.

57/365 So sweet seeing Syd at dance chatting about her favorite types of dance during "share time".

58/365 The sun is out!  Yay!  And look....I found some dappled light.

59/365 Nothing like a good sunset.

60/365 I found some more dappled light!  Aubrey looks so grown up here....what has happened to my baby!

61/365 Her show is quite funny!

62/365--It's official....Spring break!!!!!!

63/365  A beautiful day for an Easter Egg hunt in the "Hood"!

64/365 Happy Easter!  Sydney loves watching the ducks and geese at Grandmommy and Granddaddy's house! Ohhhhh the light!  Dappled light at the grandparents house was fun!

51/365 Well, here we go again...back to the doctor. I can always gage how she feels...by Nemo. If she's scared (or not feeling well), he always comes with her and keeps her safe.

Dianosis---Bronchitis 52/365--Nope she's not mine....but she loves to visit daily.

53/365 It was "Wacky Wednesday" at school....so Aubrey decided to embrace it!  I just love it when she's not "too grown up" to be silly!

Could not leave this one out!

54/365--Field trips are fun!  The Museum of Fine Arts was amazing! Syd was learning about China and Ancient Egypt!

55/365 My mornings are the BEST!  Hysterical!

Dance show day ---so proud of how far she's come!

56/365 My girls helping their Grandmommy and Granddaddy in the food panty. 

Sleep overs are the best...especially when they are a first!

33/365 Aubrey's playing photographer! Her pictures turned out fabulous! 

34/365 Taxes...sigh

35/365 Well this was hard.  Self portrait...side light.

36/365 Sidelight--She asked the "Magic 8 Ball" if it was going to snow tomorrow! It better not!!

Project 365 week one https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2015/2/project-365-week-one Project 365

This is a project I have been wanting to do for years!  A real challenge ...one picture every day for a year. I thought this was a good opportunity to try new things....like different lighting, techniques,  carrying my camera EVERYWHERE, and most of all documenting the little special things in my life.  I had planned to start in January, but my oldest daughter got a concussion...and like most people...family always come first (and projects wait). Now that my "big" girl is better,  I can let the new adventure begin.

Day 1--Low light

The silliness of my girls, when they think no one is watching.

Day 2

I love watching my oldest waiting to ask for donations towards a Girl Scout project.

Day 3

Just wishing it was spring.....still no signs.

Day 4--Low light/back light

Its not everyday she acts like the kid she is..... Day 5

Recover is a process.  Off to physical therapy.

 

Day 6--Low light

Morning lego play....a fav around here.

Day 7--Low light

Just Chillin'

Lights, camera, action! https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/6/lights-camera-action Lights, camera, action!  This beautiful rising senior was so excited about her upcoming acting audition!  She needed some head shots for her debut! "A" was amazing to work with!  Not only is she gorgeous, but she is smart, savvy and has tons of personality! I enjoyed seeing all of the different expressions she can display... and it made me wonder.... am I looking at the next "Scarlett Johansson"?

Dudley Nation https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/6/dudley-nation This shoot still makes me chuckle!  The theme song should be, "All you need is love, " by The Beatles!  They call themselves "Dudley Nation", and I had the privilege to get my passport stamped that evening!

Welcoming baby Chelsea https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/5/welcoming-baby-chelsea I am so excited to announce.....that beautiful baby Chelsea arrived yesterday!  It was just a couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to "touch" the perfect bump!

I love this picture!! It has very deep meaning to the whole family.  It represents all of the people who will love and support this little angel...because, "You are already so loved". 

 

Mom and Dad were so cute....they loved "posing it up"...and I embraced their ideas.  Cute huh?! I think so!

 

Nothing completes a day better than "showering" the new mom-to-be and dad with gifts for the baby!

I hope you dance https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/5/i-hope-you-dance "I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance."

I hope you dance..... ~ Leann Womack

I am so proud of my Sydney, and all of her friends!  I felt the need to brag on them a bit!

Go Syd!! Yep....I'm proud!!

My Little Blessings https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/5/my-little-blessings Whew....things have been really busy! So I decided....I needed to take a moment and count my blessings.  I feel so blessed to have these two silly little girls in my life.  They keep it real.  I feel blessed to have an awesome job, that allows me to be at home. When they need me...I can be there.  To me, parenthood has been the best roller coaster ride--ever!! We have our ups.....our downs...but at the end, we are together..happy! Happy belated mother's day to you all!

Mended Little Hearts https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/5/mended-little-hearts Seven years ago…. my life forever changed.  My youngest daughter, Sydney, was born with a complicated heart defect. During this roller coaster journey, I had the privilege to become a part of a wonderful support group called Mended Little Hearts.  With the care and support I received, and the lifelong friends I've made, (yes Josie I'm talking about you), I have never felt alone.... And....Sydney has never felt different.

Here are a few shots from Mended Little Hearts "Wine Down" fundraising event!

Some weeks... https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/4/some-weeks Well some weeks just don't always go the way you plan.  This was my youngest daughter mid-week....poor thing. I hugged her and cared for her...and in return, she shared  (and...no...I did not document that!).

I have been playing a lot of catch up this week...almost there!  Stayed tuned for more to come this week!

In just 30 seconds... https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/4/in-just-30-seconds I find it to be amazing how just the slightest little movement...can change the entire feel of an image.  I took these three pictures of my oldest daughter...in just under 30 seconds.  Look at how each slight change tells a different story.  I love that about photography!

My toughest client.... https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/3/my-toughest-client I'd like to introduce you to my toughest client.  

She is difficult....opinionated... squirmy...hard to please....and frankly, a little camera shy.  What client would I EVER talk like this about...... Yep...I'm talking about myself.  I have heard myself on countless occasions encouraging people to get in pictures!  Whether its head shots for work, family sessions, or just a quick snap with your phone.  Just do it! Your loved ones will LOVE looking back at YOU for years to come.  So, I asked myself, then why am I so reluctant? You know what?  I don't really have an answer.  So I decide it was time to challenge myself....with "insert drum roll please"..... self portraits. 

So....I tried the "classic" head shot.....

 

Then I decided, I needed to relax.....

 

But I think I finally captured me...as me in this one. What do you think?  Also Color......?

 

Or black and white?

February--Rock the Shot Challenge https://www.fromtheheartimages.com/blog/2014/2/february-rock-the-shot-challenge Lifestyle

I love to capture real life while it happens. It's kind of like stealing tiny moments...and freezing them... so they are never forgotten. This picture is a little bittersweet for me.  Our best friends---really,more like family---had just moved far away.  We , myself included, were heart broken.  In this picture, my 7 and 10 year old girls were face timing their best friends after they arrived at their new home.
