They Are the Reason

So here I am blogging - something I swore I had no time for and would absolutely not do. As I've thought about it more, though, I've realized that I need this. In the last few days I've felt challenged as I take pictures knowing I will absolutely be sharing them here. It stretches me to want to be better at photographer simply because I know I will be sharing what I do with you.

This picture was taken a year ago, just days after I received my first digital SLR camera (a Canon Rebel XS). I was tired of taking my kids to the mall department store photography chains to mark their mile stones. I thought for my 30th birthday I'd begin pursuing a new hobby. In the last 12 months I've discovered that I absolutely LOVE photography! I no longer have to wait for a scheduled appointment in hopes of capturing that amazingly adorable look one of my boys gives me! I've begun a new adventure in making memories. This is my journey.

At your house you are the center of an all male fan club. Enjoy!

BTW, my brain is rebelling against the idea of you being over 30. I remember when...

Hey Kim, I am excited to track your blog. I'll admit it, I am a blog stalker, so atleast this time I will actually know the writer. Plus I think you are a great photographer. I actually thought of you last week when I got my first DSLR, a Nikon D5000, for my birthday. I love looking back at my blog, you will LOVE it. =)

Hi Kimberly! I just stumbled upon your blog from a comment that you left on Joyful Growing (We actually know each other from a long, long time ago at ALCC...). :)

Welcome to the blogosphere! How old are your boys? They're super cute.

Also: I completely agree with you about photos being so much better when you take them yourself with a DSLR as opposed to going to the mall photo places! You can capture kids' personalities so much better at home!

I look forward to following your blog!
