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.
