Test!

 We have a huge window in our front living room that I use to light my small indoor "studio". I don't know what's taken me so long but recently I've flipped my set up a bit so that I can do back lit photos like these. Here are my kids helping me by modeling.
 It was nice to get a few photos of them in their church clothes.

 They are far from perfect but I feel like I've learned just by taking these. I used a reflector which helped a ton.


Totally going to be a dancer, got the dégagé down.

 We did these ones earlier this week when Archie was at school...
A favorite for sure!

I could totally fill my days just photographing my kids but I'm so thankful for the blessings that come from sharing my talents. I have met the nicest people through photography, both fellow photographers and clients. I am more prepared financially because of it. I have found ways to serve through sharing this talent as well.

And just a general update on some things... I got a couple of new callings at church today (which I guess aren't official until next week). We are getting more serious about buying a new house! We're pre- approved for a loan and we'll start looking at a few next week. We're planning a trip to Japan!! Jacob is going there for work and I'm going to tag a long for a few days. I haven't been overseas in years, I'll have to dust off my passport. :)
