Ellie and I went to My Big Backyard at Memphis Botanical Gardens just to play. I always have my camera ready and was able to capture a few cute shots, although she is "so over" getting her picture taken and there are rare moments when I can get a smile. The first picture is when we got home and put our jammies on, of course she was all smiles then. The weather was a bit cool, (hence the winter outfit). But, it is definitely official that spring is here, there are buds and blooms all around us. What a beautiful world we live in, we just have to take the time to enjoy! Here are a few pics from our day.
Ever since I can remember I have been obsessed with photos. Some may say a little TOO obsessed. I love looking at the pictures and remembering a moment… or learning something new about the past. To this day, I love looking through my photo albums… and I smile as I remember the amazing memories of my life. Somehow the obsession with photographs turned into an obsession with photography… the ART of capturing the photograph that others will want to look at to remember a moment or learn about their past. I bought my first DSLR camera shortly before the birth of my first child in 2008. I had so much fun taking pictures of this beautiful new person in my life and became pretty obsessed with my new toy and hobby. I posted picture after picture on my Facebook page and blog and soon people were asking ME to take their photos. There was something so incredibly exhilarating about getting to be the one who captured the memories that these people would cherish forever and I instantly fell in love with being a photographer. With support from my family and friends, I started my photography business officially in 2010 after I upgraded my camera and lenses to the "big league or real deal." And let me tell you… I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do. Nothing compares to being a small part of the beautiful relationships shared by so many incredible people (my clients!) in this world!
