Strawberry Fields Forever



Ok...no fields...more like a basket of strawberries on our patch of yard, but I do love these shots!  I just want to take a minute to reflect on my photography journey thus far.  I started to get a little more serious about picture-taking a bit over a year ago.  I've grown alot, but still have a hard time calling myself a photographer.  I usually say, "I do some photography."  In this year, I have enjoyed experimenting and trying to pinpoint my "style."  I think it's only natural to evolve from strictly traditional portraits and candids to something a little more artistic (e.g. the shot of a headless Sophie below...that I LOVE).  I find myself drawn to this style of photography more and more.  Detail shots with creative crops and composition.  I am also trying to shoot more daily life pictures because those are what every parent wants to remember years from now.  I'm glad I get to experiment with my kiddos...because I totally get that most clients want heads and sweet little faces in their child's photos :)  And don't misunderstand-I still love a great portrait!

Love these! I think you are a great photographer!!! And I do think of you as a "photographer"! You and your style have evolved a lot this past year...it's been a fun journey...so glad you introduced me to the photo challenge world last summer, just as I was getting back into my photography!
