A little over a year ago I was inspired to start a project called 365 where I took a picture a day for a whole year. The movie Julie and Julia was my inspiration where the main character uses Julie Child’s cookbook as she cooks and blogs her way through the book in a year. Well, I’ve photographed my way through a year and I’ve learned so much from the other creative photographers on the 365 site. Check out my page here. Through their lenses I gained a more creative eye and learned more about my camera and to be honest, I’ve even learned a few things about myself. One of which was struggling through a lot of my own insecurities. Even though the project ended I continue to take photographs of the world around me and I’m in need of a creative outlet so I’m beginning this blog.
Recently a family from church was in need of someone to take Senior pictures of their graduating daughter so they asked me if I would take them for her. It’s been about 5 years since I’ve had a photo session with anyone so I was quite nervous. Two days before the session I called my daughter-in-law, Kacie and asked if she and Bella would like to come with me to Main Street in St. Charles to scope out a few places for taking pictures. The next three pictures are from that trip.
Bella…the joy of my life.
