still | new jersey photographer

I bought my first SLR camera in 1997 for the first photography class I had in college.  At the time babies and kids were the furthest thing from my mind and instead I loved photographing still-life.  I remember for one of my first assignments I photographed my roomate’s clarinet and spent hours in the darkroom perfecting my print.  That print stayed on my wall in the next 3 or 4 apartments I lived in and I still have it in my box of college stuff.  I photographed people too, mostly portraits of friends when we had an assignment but I loved exploring and capturing landscapes and still life.  I was fortunate that I got to travel extensively in college and when I graduated so I have thousands of negatives from my 8 years with my trusty canon rebel.  Now with 2 kids and a baby photography business I haven’t been on a fabulous vacation since our honeymoon in 2004 and I am too busy shooting babies to do a lot of fine art projects for fun.  But this morning I made myself take a few minutes alone outside and just enjoy the flowers and signs of spring.  It felt good and definitely reminded me of my early photo classes although better because I don’t have to think about grades anymore.

Stay tuned for some regular stuff this weekend..I had 2 sessions this afternoon and have 2 this weekend so lots of cute babies to be blogged in the next few days.

    How do you do it?
    You are truly amazing! I love how you can take the simplest thing and make it into art. The colors are amazing and i can see just about every single piece of pollen stand out.ReplyCancel

    If after all of your hard work you have time to notice a beauty of the nature, you must have it all!
