Where I'm From

Earlier this month, I had a rare opportunity to spend a week back at home in Illinois....the heartland. It was such a good trip and probably more than anytime in my life, I had such an appreciation for where I come from. My Dad farms and is one of the hardest working people I've ever known in my life. We all provide for our families in good, honorable ways, but there is so much a child learns from watching their parents work the land with hard, physical labor. I learned an intense work ethic, good morals, and the importance of family growing up here. Dad, I'm so proud of you and I'm so unbelievably thankful for the life you and Mom gave to us. Love you guys!!

The great Mississippi River

We went out to visit Dad while he was in the field and snapped a few shots of Lola and Mama.

And, well, not sure how this one fits in other than the fact that it was taken in Illinois. It's special enough it deserves its own space....

Years ago I was introduced to the amazing photography work of Nashville's best, Zach and Jody Gray of Gray Photography (thanks Ashley R.!!!). I've marveled at their work and followed their blog consistently as inspiration of where I'd like to take my photography skills. This past week, I was beyond blessed to have the opportunity to attend a 3 day In Camera workshop that they hosted in Nashville. By "In Camera" they mean learning to get everything from the lighting (whether natural light or off camera lighting), exposure, composition, and white balance all right from the beginning in the camera so that VERY little post editing is necessary. Ah ya!!!

To say that I was inspired by the photography skills that Zach and Jody taught or the business and marketing tips they shared, would be an understatement. But even more than these incredibly important things, I was inspired by their love for God, each other and teaching us photographers. Their willingness to share things that most photographers keep so closely guarded was a true testament to their giving spirits. Zach and Jody, THANK YOU! And to all the other unbelievably talented photographers that I met at the workshop, thank you as well for your friendship and all the laughs :-)....I had a blast!

Natural light shots with the amazingly beautiful and talented model, Lindsey.

Off camera light shots with the stunning models Aimee, Lindsey and Bailey. Notice how amazing you can make the sky look when using off camera lighting, allowing both the sky and the model to have perfect exposure. So COOL!!
