I’m one of the creators of I Heart Faces, a photography blog, but I’m not a professional photographer.
I did become a newborn photographer for a short while though. I love taking photos of babies, but with tons of editing and the time it took away from my design business and blogging, being a photographer became too much. I had to give it up.
Every now and then I offer photography services to friends and that gives me much joy! This weekend, I took photos at my friend Bia’s 40th birthday party. I sure have a LOT of friends turning 40 this year. Her party was gorgeous and I can’t wait to show you the photos and amazing details!
What I love about being a photographer is the challenge of trying to capture a person’s personality in just a few seconds and then the joy that it brings someone when they see the final product.
Bia told me she has never had a photo she liked of herself in her 40 years until now. Seeing her smile when she saw her photos sure makes me wish I had more time to be a photographer. Maybe someday.
This week at I Heart Faces, our photo challenge is Autumn Splendor. The leaves are just now changing in Dallas. I think they changed just for Bia’s party!
Join the fun and submit your favorite photo of Autumn on Monday or Tuesday.
Watch our new episode on My Craft Channel this week!
Angie and I share our “lightbulb moments” that made us say “Ah-Ha!” and will teach you great tips to improve your own photography skills.
