Be Educated!

How do you turn this…

Into this???

Do you have a digital SLR camera and shoot on “P” or auto mode? Why not take a few lessons and learn how to really use the machine? With a couple lessons you can learn how to really work your camera.
Then there’s the beast we all call Photoshop. The software program is extensive. We’ve heard everyone say “just Photoshop it” but the truth is it’s not that easy. It takes time and know how to alter images. Would you like to learn how to open up the world of Photoshop? I can teach some easy basics of Photoshop that will have your images polished and ready to frame.

Feeling Down? Saddle up!

“Feeling down? Saddle up!” is how the saying goes. I can only tell you that it’s true.:) The horse knows his place. He knows how the world is supposed to be. He doesn’t spend his time trying to be a graceful swan or a mighty lion. He’s not sad that he’s not those things. The horse is cool with being, well…a horse. The best part- he’ll teach you how to be. That’s right. All the things you worry and fret about will go away in his presence. There’s no strife in the velvety softness of his nose, no fear in the rise and fall of his withers, no pain in the scent of his sweat. The horse is waiting to take you away for a while. He’ll teach you.


Great American Road Trip: The Best Way to See the US!

I did it. Well an abbreviated one. I took a road trip with my friend Jeanette. 4400 miles and 10 states later we have become better women. I photographed a wedding on March 31, raced home, unloaded wedding gear, reloaded trip gear and headed to Nashville to meet Jeanette. About 9:30 she bid her husband, cats and dog farewell and we drove west! Being the night owl she took the first shift. The arch of St. Louis hovered over us around 3:00 am but wasn’t lit!!!! What?! I took over about 5:00 and drove on through Kansas City into Kansas. So many people told me what an awful piece of boring Kansas was to drive but they couldn’t have been more wrong! Rolling meadows, flint hills, wind turbines…I was impressed. Maybe I was just high on the euphoric romance of the west! Oh goodness…anyway. I’ll start the image posting with photos from the leg home. I-40 outside Amarillo to the west, just off old Route 66 is Cadillac Ranch. We stopped there on Saturday, Easter eve. We trekked through the windy gusts to the middle of a wheat field where 10 Cadillacs stand buried, end up in the red Texas dirt. You can bring your spray paint leave your mark…until the next person covers it with theirs.

Wedding: Rachel & Chris: Louisville, Kentucky Wedding Photography

When I met them at the church and reception site a month ago it was 19, snowing and the wind was like 30 mph. In as much bubbles and sunshine I could muster I declared in faith it would be 63 and sunny on their wedding date, March 10. Wouldn’t you know…it was! Ans we thank God for that!  Rachel and Chris were married in Louisville at Broadway Baptist Church in March. The reception was at EP Tom Sawyer State Park Lodge. They really are best friends- the way it should be.
