Thanks for visiting my site! I am not a professional photographer but I have learned a few fun things along the way. I love working with kids and I guess being a mommy is a big part of that. My boys are my two favorite subjects. I love working with Photoshop Elements and besides a little help from other websites I am self taught. My early stuff may be a little rough around the edges but I feel I have come along way and I hope to continue to improve.

Random Family Photo

Here is a family photo I shot for some friends of ours.

Raleigh Birth Announcement Shoot

Here are some pictures that I took to make Raleigh's Birth announcement. Lori Wait took some very nice ones in a few different outfits, these were just to add to those. He was about 2 weeks old.

A Few of My Aden Favorites

Self Portraits

Now I am not a huge fan of pictures of myself but when it comes to family I will occasionally be the photographer and the subject. Some of the pictures are a little crazy because I had to set a timer and run.

Playing with Photoshop Elements

So I wanted to post a few of my first fun tricks with photoshop...I realize now that my first, and really, my favorite effect is doing partial color pictures. So here are some of the very first pictures I edited. Now the one that is in full color you will notice that the reflection doesn't match the picture...I thought it was a really cool effect to have the reflection...reflective figuratively instead of literally.

My Beginings Part 2: Mommy's New Toy

So around mid October my early birthday present came via ups. A Nikon 40DX! I did an immediate photo shoot with my little muse. I was in love with the picture quality and the fast shutter speed. I could finally get the pictures that I wanted.
