Every year I plant a bunch of planters, for me its a great way to focus on something else.  This year I had to work my butt off to keep them alive.  It was a hot dry summer.  In the end my hard work all summer worked out for the fall.  Enjoy my pretty flowers!  Oh and the cat; who always joins me outside.

If you have flowers still growing in your yard share them with us.

Fall Inspiration

        I spent all week sitting at my desk looking out at the lovely weather, wishing I were out there taking photos.  I hauled my camera with me to work but inspiration never did strike.  I went out with a friend to out local area open studios.  A bunch of artist, mostly painters, open their space for people to walk though and buy their paintings.  That helped get me reinvested in working on my art but I hauled my camera that day too and nothing.  Then that night my husband and I went to my parent’s house for the BSU football game and inspiration struck.  It's a good thing my family knows we so well, not sure these images would have worked as well if they weren't understanding.

What do you think of these images?


What inspires you to do what you love?  I'd love to hear or see your inspires you.

New life

              Its funny how life starts out.  When I was a kid I knew I’d either be a model or a photographer.  I tried the modeling thing, that was a lot of fun but I was a little to far from home for my liking.  So it was time to try the photography thing.  How did I go about that, well I started college.  I finished college and what was I doing for work, being an office assistant in a job I didn’t even like.  I knew I was in charge of changing my lives outcome.  So I found another job at an office with wonderful people.  You may be wondering where the photographer part of my ramblings comes in.  Every time I think about where my life is now its always about the photography.  I love my job but its time for photography to be a bigger part.  I hope you will enjoy hearing about my life as a photographer in an office assistant position.
