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.
Absolutely stunning Christie! Are these with the 100mm macro?
If after all of your hard work you have time to notice a beauty of the nature, you must have it all!
Yup Kim, all with the macro! love that lens
