Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
I am so excited to launch the new site (Tiffany from On The Spot Studio did a fantastic job, don’t you think?!) and share this beautiful family with you!
There are some really exciting things coming up and it is really hard for me not to spill the beans about what is going on because it is going to be such a big year and I am hard at work on them, but it just isn’t quite time yet. You definitely are going to want in on this (listen up, photographers!) so stay tuned!
I’m a bit busy right now trying to get the new website and branding ready to launch (squeee!!! I am SO excited!) and working on a couple new concept sessions as well as prepping for a major blog post for a big personal project I am working on, but I wanted to pop in some of my favorite photos from this past Summer. <3 Hoping they warm you up as we recover from all that snow!
Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing photographers, several of which I’ve had the chance to develop deep friendships with. A group of about 12 of these wonderful photographers (including myself) from all over this big wide world have decided to challenge ourselves to grow by doing a biweekly photo based on a single word. This immediately appealed to me since this is how I normally shoot my client sessions, but at the same time this is very very different because of the confines that are put on it. The word “inspiration” is very open to interpretation and should have been a no-brainer for me but it was very hard for me to create a photo for this week’s assignment. I finally decided that it had to be my children because this is, after-all, where this great love of photography is centered and because my photographic passion is children and their whimsical innocence.
About the photo(s): it’s been snowing here in Seattle since last Friday (basically) and my kids have been loving it! Snow is magical… especially for us Texans. Anyway, the pig that my baby is enchanted with was already living here when we moved into this house in September and I have been in love with him since I laid eyes on him. She just discovered him and now seems to appreciate him as well. For anyone interested in the technical info, I shot these with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 100mm 2.8 macro. The first photos settings were 1/320, 2.8, ISO 400 and the second photo’s were 1/250, 2.8, ISO 400. You can check outLindsey Bergstrom Photography, the next lovely lady photographer in the group, and just follow the ring along from there!
