My babies!

One would think that being a photographer would mean having a ton of pictures of your own kids, and for the most part I do have a lot of them, but mostly snapshots, not posed, professional pictures that I have taken the time to shoot. However, today we did just that - we had a session! My kids are no doubt my favorite subjects, not only because I love them with all my heart, but also because I know what to expect from them, and they know what to expect out of me! I have all the time in the world (or at least as much time as my three year old allows haha) for our "sessions" and hopefully we are building memories for a lifetime in the process!

Return to Art - 4-H art camp July 12, 2011

Today I taught a group of 14 kids for a 4-H art camp and it was really refreshing to see the "new artists" at work. They had creativity and ideas that I would have never thought of and it reminded me of why I became an artist in the first place! I won my first coloring contest when I was less than 5 years old and the only "activity" I can ever remember doing well in school was art (of course we never had classes for art specifically). I am glad to have been a part of this 4-H art camp today and it reminds me that I need to keep my creative juices flowing in ALL areas of art in order to better my photographic skills!
