Resolutions {The Creativity Project}

    When I first began playing with a camera it was fun.  That was before I had to worry about a bottom line, advertising, marketing, and client communication.  Before photography was work, I tried new things that weren't related lighting or white balance.  I like to think I created a little magic.  Once, after a long day of playing at the park, I had Erin and her friend jump on a hill and pretend they were taking flight.  We had so much fun snapping photos of them jumping into the air.  When I look at this photo, I remember their laughter the most.  I want photography to be fun again. So, one of my resolutions is to make it fun.  To spend time each week taking a photo purely for the fun of it.

My favorite from 2012

    Choosing a favorite photo from this year was impossibly hard.  In the end, I settled on this one of my friend Lacey.
