Here goes nothing

Photography has always been something I've loved.  I love to take pictures of my kids, beautiful things, and moments that I want to make sure last a little longer.  

Taking a picture is like creating a piece of artwork.  It's beauty and appeal is subjective to whoever looks at it.  As a mom, any picture that I take of my kids is beautiful to me, albeit not a "great" picture all of the time.

Turning this hobby into something a little bit more has been something I've been wanting to do for a long time, but it's a little scary.  Or a lot scary.  It's hard putting your work out there for others to critique.....especially if they're paying for it.....oh, the pressure!!!  I like to make people happy.

So it's a good thing I'm starting out practicing on my friends.  All fun, no pressure!  Karen was kind enough to let me do just that with Baby Cooper this past weekend.
