One Year with my DSLR. My Photography Journey.
It's finally here. My one year DSLRiversay Photography Celebration and Giveaway. Please bear with me because I am about to get uncharacteristically sappy. I broke this post up into two parts. This is Part I.
Those of you who have been with me from my CrunchyVTMommy days know how hard I have worked to improve the quality of my photos. Here is Part I of my photography journey. I've come pretty far as you can see.
I would be remiss if I did not give credit where it is due. I've spent time, money, and effort of course but without my friends I wouldn't be where I am.
And where am I?
A million miles away from the person I was. Photography has changed my perspective and perceptions. Everything is an adventure and an opportunity to document a moment in time I might otherwise have forgotten. Major milestones remain seared in my memory for a lifetime but what about that time we were blowing bubbles and Preston stopped to kiss Cameron on the forehead?
I don't want to ever forget.
Photography has given me the gifts of eternal memory for me and my family, the opportunity to home a skill and art form which helps me bring happiness to others, and a platform to eventually (and hopefully currently) help others discover the same joy.
Thank you all for the support.
It means more to me than I can convey. I have a long way to go and am light years from where I want to be but I will get there. Someday. For now I am enjoying the ride.
Oh, and I'm a good sport you can totally laugh at my missteps :). Part of the fun is looking back at how awesome we thought we were and then later shaking our head at the mint green skin tones on our kids.
*I have a few loose ends to wrap up before posting Part II/The Super Crazy Awesome Photography Giveaway. Keep an eye out but it should be up no later than tomorrow (and maybe as early as this afternoon if a certain somebody wants to nap). I am SO excited to share with you guys! xo*
