Lindsay + JP | Love

After I suited up in my ski-bibs, boots, and 10-bazillion layers of clothing, I was ready to shoot in the 4-hour phenomena!
And who else to better fit this shoot than the amazing Lindsay and JP??? Oh, excuse me… and Bosco!

The super cool thing about these photos is, these are probably the last pictures of them as a duo. Soon they’ll be a trio!!! (Well, a human trio!) :D
They have truly been a sweet and wonderful couple and I’m so thrilled to see their love and their family grow!
The other thing I love about this session is, we ended up at their home.
After a FREEZING time outside, they ended cuddled up together, in their first home, which will always be special to them and full of great memories of newly-weddness. ;)

Frozen, icy world, here are my friends: Lindsay, JP, Bosco (aka Chicken-Pig), and the little baby (his/her’s debut on the blog at least)!

Memphis | Snow Day 2011

I got out again early this morning to take some pictures in the snow, like I did last year.
I didn’t take as many as last year and that’s 100% okay with me. Like I’ve said before, landscapes and “no-people” pictures are not really my niche.
The expectations to take tons of magnificent photographs in my personal life is a heavy burden and sometimes I feel guilty for not doing it.

But there are some experiences that I want to take in 360 degrees, completely encompassed in its atmosphere and splendor.
There are times when I’m limited to the richness of my personal experience when looking through my 3/4-inch viewfinder.

There’s always challenges to pick up your camera and shoot away. And that’s great! Go for it!
But today, I challenge you to not always be glued to your viewfinder, especially in your personal stories. Stop and look around in a full circle, take it all in.
Remember colors, temperature, sounds, peacefulness, or smells even.
You’ll find the photos you take will be worlds more meaningful and memorable to you – They’ll have a story tied to them.

Happy Snow Day to all of Memphis! Enjoy it before it melts by 2pm! ;)
