As a mommy of a 16 month old, time seems to escape me all too often. I realize that days and weeks pass without me having done anything for myself other than going to the gym, which, I'll admit, is a great feat! I used to take my camera everywhere. Now, with a little one that has been walking since 10 1/2 months and who is a new climber, my camera stays at home. I find it easier to just carry a cell phone that I can quickly pop in my back pocket when I need to.
I slugged through hundred of pictures of my blonde haired, blue eyed baby girl to find out the last time I used my camera for something other than her. It was my Aunt Teresa's wedding. She asked me to be her photographer. I was nervous and excited at the same time. My composition skills are not too bad, but I lack any knowledge of post processing - where most of the work of wedding photography is done these days. I post process, but it is literally just me playing around with the Photoshop software, trying something, seeing if I like it and trying something else. So, I was only mildly happy with my results. I'm hoping in the future that I will gain some real knowledge of Photoshop and surprise them with a couple of much better Photoshopped photos.
I was happy to help her out on such a wonderful day. She married a man that is happy, kind, generous and an all around good guy. I couldn't have been happier for her! So, here is my point of view from her special day.
