Photo shoot!

As you’ve probably noticed, I mostly take pictures of nature or landmarks or architecture or events… I don’t have a lot of fancy photography equipment or enough experience to do a legitimate photo shoot with families or for a wedding (yet…), so I figured this was the perfect place to start- with my own family. It’s always fun to try new things with my camera… This was my first experience as close to an actual photo shoot as it was (with my own camera and my sister and I as the photographers). We definitely had a good time experimenting with different lighting in the field and seeing where the winter sun hit our faces for the perfect picture.

These were all taken on a warm, December day… It almost looks more like October. My next goal is a winter photo shoot… Preferably with snow 🙂
Enjoy!

The one with the crazy curly hair is my sister 🙂

Diversity

My family and I recently took a trip to Washington DC. I had so many wonderful photography opportunities there! This was probably my favorite picture though…

I love this picture. It just represents the diversity of our country so much. The majestic pillars at the Lincoln memorial make a perfect background to showcase the many different kinds of people visiting. Without all the people, it would be a bland picture.  The busyness and color just adds so much to this.

I’ll be posting more pictures from our trip soon 🙂

Here’s an interesting thought… Do you ever look at a picture, see all the people in it, and wonder who they are, where they live,  and what their life is like? Do you wonder where they are right now? Try looking at each person in the picture… Maybe make up a story for their lives even! Wouldn’t it be amazing to get to know every single person in this picture? You never know who you’re photographing! It’s very difficult to notice these kinds of things when everything is moving around you.  That’s why I love photography so much.
