Snax poses

I'll be completely honest. In a world full of photographers it's easy
to feel a little insecure. Is it just me or does it seem like EVERYONE
has a huge, honkin' camera and has a photography website? And there are
so many talented people out there! Since coming home I rarely take out
my camera and maybe it's cuz I just don't want join the masses. I
dunno. I don't have the best 'equipment' and sometimes I wonder if I'm
just pretending, ya know? I have to remind myself that for me it's just
about a hobby. And there is joy in it for me. Tonight I have a little
photo shoot with my niece, which I'm excited about but also nervous.
What if I don't deliver? This morning I got Snax to strike a pose for
me just to get rid of my jitters. It didn't work. But here is my
favorite picture. It's hard to take a bad picture of such a cute face.

oh Lisa, you are a talented and gifted photographer. Please take out your camera more often! My camera has met a similar fate since coming home. I feel like I need to take a course to catch up to everyone else out there. BUT everyone has a different vision through the lens...don't be intimidated by how others see the world. Your photographs are just as valid and your viewpoint is unique to you.

thanks Corina. You're the sweetest.

Lise. Dear Lise. You know what I've noticed about photographers? The same thing I've noticed about cooks: food tastes better when there's love behind it. And it's the same with taking pictures. I've seen some awesome wedding pics on a blog where the person LOVES weddings. And then I've seen them take some kid photos and they were fine but there was nothing behind them. THAT'S why I want you to take pics of my girly. Because I know you love her to bits. And that's what makes you such a great photographer. You LOVE.

This picture of Snax is awesome. And the only thing I'm nervous about tonight is keeping my triple chin out of the shots :)

Loves you.

I'm not sure if I have ever posted a comment on your blog before but I have been reading it for some time now. You are right.. there are a lot of photographers out there and it does feel overwhelming. I count myself as a hobbyist also.. the only reason I put my name out there and made a blog is because I wanted to develop my art {and there is no faster way to develop ones own skills than to be put in the hot seat}.

LOVE this picture! He looks like a mini Andrew. (is that the teal chair I just admired in Snax's room the other day)?

You have incredible talent Lisa! I love your photos...I have wondered if you take pictures for others or not. I agree, it does seem that everyone is a 'photographer' these days but I have to say that your work is amazing - love your perspective - and you we should see way more of it!

A person necessarily help to make critically articles I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I amazed with the analysis you made to make this particular put up extraordinary. Wonderful activity!
