ha. workshop. that doesn't even begin to describe what this was to me.
this is sheye. do you know her yet? if you don't. you should.
her workshop - click here ... i would recommend it in a heartbeat.
is amazing. it's like paying a minimal fee to be given an unbelieveable amount of supportive like-minded people that give you boosts of confidence. and give you critique in the most-nice of ways. and they encourage you to do things like this.
|which is a quick glimpse of the me ... right now. with a sleeping baby on my lap. studying her class on my laptop. my camera manual to the side and my girly-girls sharing their halloween candy ...|
|a glimpse of the old me. through an opportunity that i put together to have my stellers feeding an apple to a horse that i trained when i was much much younger.|
|an attempt at capturing joy. in my stella ...|
and these ... my backup attempts at finding joy in all of my children.
which is funny. because what i really found?
was joy in me.
and i've realized through all of this amazing interaction that these images are all me. magnified.
i am more energized and excited and scared of this photography piece of me than i have ever been. i still don't know if i'm ready to officially call myself a photographer. but i've most definitely become a manual using eye opened finder of the beauty-full things in life.
and it is near impossible to find a way to say thank you to these women for something so big.
oh. and i've been over here some more too. babies. and baby bumps. and families. so.much.fun.
