Before all the snow is melted on the ground today, I thought I would leave you all with a little snowy gender reveal:-)

It may not be the most glamorous session as I was seriously getting blown away in the snow, not to mention the wet snow that was coming down 100 miles a minute in our faces and completely soaking us...

Yes, I said bab-ies:-) This post is a long time coming but remember THIS POST where I said I would share more about this session later...well here it is! Back at the end of December, I decided to do a little lighting, camera, new lens practicing and what better way to practice then with incorporating a little Christmas shoot and a little girl that just happened to be perfect for making an announcement...after all, she has a big role...

Today is going to be the start of something new for me.  As some of you know, I have not been one to post pictures or anything to do with my daughter since she was born…except an occasional few.  It has just been a fear of mine to put her out there in the internet world but that is about to change.  I used to blog and loved every minute of it before my daughter was born.  I used to have anything on there from decorating to food to what was on my mind that day to pictures I took to personal events going on in my life, movies and shows I was loving,  and even personal pictures of my friends and family.  I used to put it all out there but that changed when my little Isla was born…that is pronounced EYE-LA, not IS-LA,  just in case you wondering how the heck do I say that name;-).

For the past year and some, my blogging became non-existent and now I have started thinking to myself, why is that?  It was something I LOVED doing!  I know it takes a little bit of work and some effort but what doesn’t?  If you love it, you should do it!  And you should make time to do it.  Why put off something you love doing?  After starting a full-time photography business over a year ago and having some mentoring along the way, I have decided that it is time for this girl to get back to blogging.  But this time, combining both professional and personal.  It will give you an insight in to who I am, my likes, my interests, my work, and especially, what inspires me and what I work for.  One of my inspirations is Amanda Hedgepeth.  I have only recently come across her work through the amazing photography community and one of her biggest things is “Let the people you love inspire you”…And to me, that is so true and couldn’t be any more spot on!  My little one means the world to me and she is what I work for.  She is the one that if I’m having a bad day, all I have to do is look at her and her smile will brighten my day.  She is my positivity when I am down.  She gives me motivation and want to work even harder. Even those of you that don’t have kids, or may never want kids, that is completely okay!  That is what makes you YOU.  We are all different and all have different inspirations that motivate us.  So let those inspirations push you even harder and get you to where you are doing what you love…or at least something you enjoy doing.

So now that I have written a novel for the day, and if you have even kept reading this far, I thought I would share a few images of my little inspiration and what keeps me going each and every day.  So here we go…to being vulnerable, to putting myself out there. to getting to know me, and getting back to doing what I love…blogging and putting that camera in front of my face:-)


And I think she’s calling it a wrap for the day;-)

Happy Friday!  Although I have actually been in 75 degree and sunny weather all week, I know my hubby and everyone back at home and my old home up North weren’t so lucky.  So those of you that had 4 four days of rain and some topped off with snow, I thought I would share my sunshine with you that I get everyday!  Here’s a little sneak peek of my little cutie during a little Christmas shoot I attempted.  More to share from that shoot soon:-)

Doesn’t the start of a new year always feel good? It gives you the chance to start new, de-clutter, re-organize, and just refresh…almost like spring cleaning but I don’t think I have done any “spring cleaning” in the spring for several years so the start of this new year will be my spring cleaning:-) So Happy 2013!!...
