Just like every other female, I enjoy photography as a hobby. I bought my big-girl camera two years ago now, and I've been practicing ever since. The only problem is that it's really REALLY hard to practice your photography skills when you have no pets and no children and only your husband as a live subject to practice on. The fact that said husband doesn't like to move around very much makes it even more difficult. And the fact that my apartment has very little light.
That's why I get excited when I have the opportunity to take pictures of friends. It's not anything I do professionally, but I enjoy taking the occasional family photo for Christmas or birthdays, whathaveyou. The following are a few of my favorite shots from recent sessions.
It's easy for me to get discouraged when I look at shots from professional photographers. I have yet to figure out how to perfect that golden evening light, and I still stress out about posing. But I can't deny that I'm getting better and more comfortable with my camera. I guess that's really all you can hope for.
The first two are of my girl Leanna.
