So for those of you getting to know me, you’ll find out I love love love all forms of art. I have a special affinity for photographic art. I have taken photo classes since high school. Yet I still am not always the most comfortable with my skill. Therefore I haven’t really ever published any of my work for anyone to see. But worse than that I often times I am not even motivated to take pictures because I get frustrated when they do not look like I envisioned. Crazy sounding, I know. We all learned that practice makes perfect so if I don’t practice I definitely won’t get better. Well a part of my plan of action for this year was to get my 10,00 hours in of practice. (10,000 hours, yes Malcom Gladwell cites in his book Outliers that it takes that many hours to develop proficiency and excel in any area.) In order to accomplish this I want to complete a 52-Week photo project where I focus on one great photo each week. Each week it is my desire to learn or attempt a new skill or technique. I will share with you my progress as the time passes. I am a few weeks behind but I am excited to get going with this project. It is my plan to produce a coffee table book for myself with the year of images.
In this post I have included some photos from one of my favorite sessions. I had the pleasure of photographing two sisters, Abby and Cami. The session originally started off of just Abby but the sisterly love between the two resulted in an adorable session with pictures of both.
