Who I am.

I AM is my attempt to document my efforts teaching myself a new skill.

I am a wife and mother of two young boys (ages 3 and 1). I am at home with them which is where I want to be, but in May of 2012 I decided on a whim to participate in a Photo A Day challenge. I found it frustrating in many ways. My photographs weren’t very good, but it got me thinking about HOW to photograph as well as WHAT to photograph.

My blog chronicles the things in my life. Often my photographs are opportunistic. It is rare for me to be without my children and they don’t like me to set up a shot for more than about 2 seconds. I try to focus on different aspects and styles of photography. Good composition occupies about 90% of my headspace these days and I hope each photo teaches me something new and offers me a chance to improve.

That is what I am after: improvement.

I take photos on my newly acquired DSLR, a Nikon D7000 (given to me in September of 2012) and occasionally on my iPhone or the P&S camera of anyone in the vicinity of me if I see something I want to capture.

I assume by blogging publicly I am apparently craving validation of my existence.

My photography isn’t always consistent and may be considered mundane by some people.

But, I don’t care.

It is what it is.

You are welcome to explore my world with me.

    1. What a lovely comment Becca! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. I am glad you have enjoyed looking at my blog 🙂

  1. Thank you for liking my Big Lobster! You have a lovely blog and your photos are pretty. You are remarkable to be doing so much with two young kids. I’ll follow your Blog and hope you will with mine too and drop by again.

  2. I’m really glad I found this – your photos are lovely! You sound a bit like my husband – he’ll do something until he’s one of the best in the world at it and then he moves on to something else.

  3. I used to sew all the time having been taught by my grams and great aunt, who were trained seamstresses, but never took it up as a trade, when I was very young. I just started back up again myself.

I appreciate your thoughts and feedback.
