Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

Holiday Photo Shoot

Every year I make albums for the grandparents.  These are the perfect Xmas presents.  Every year I take tons of photos yet still feel like I'm scrambling to find the right mix for the albums.  This year I decided to be more strategic and perhaps more organized about it all.  I found that my favorite pages in the albums were the series of photos, a set of photos from a single setting that I can turn into a collage.

This year I decided to be intentional about the photo shoots.

Motivated by Andrea Sherr and Karen Walrond, I have begun taking my photography more seriously.  I begin to call my photography time with the Lotus Bud "photo shoots."  For the Xmas photo albums I like the wonderful candid photos rather than the ones that are formally posed.  The best part of it all is that I get tons of photos every year!

They are not perfect, some don't even have the light right and others are out of focus, but I do manage to capture bits of  her growing and evolving personality, so full of energy and joy.



  1. I'm so happy to hear you're taking your photography seriously - you've got such a gift, and I can't wait to see where you go with it. (Language is key, and calling them photo shoots is an important step.)

    1. Thanks Deonne! I'm going like I have been for decades with my photography, but you are right about language being the key. A photo shoot is intentional and that's the step I need to take in my life right now. Intentionally taking steps towards the life I want to live. Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
