Winter Break...| Lethbridge Photographer

Is anyone else ready for winter to be over yet? I most certainly am! I decided to unofficially take a little step back from photography this winter not only to get the business end of this endeavor organized, but also to sharpen up on some of my skills...or quite honestly..lack there of. I don't know if I have accomplished what I had originally set out to yet, but I'm still working on it...didn't someone once say "slow and steady wins the race?" haha..I think they lied! but it makes me feel better so I'm going to adopt that as my motto until I feel comfortable enough to go full throttle...

Even though a break has felt really good, I am slowly (remember my new motto!) becoming more comfortable with my beautiful new camera, things are FINALLY becoming more and more clear to me, and I have been catching up on some much needed sleep that had alluded me all summer..I CANNOT wait for the spring to arrive! I am starting to sense that all too familiar feeling of creativity flowing into me, it's the magic that fuels my passion for capturing some of life's most honest and beautiful moments and its BACK!

So, although I still feel like I have alot to do before I am organized and ready enough to jump back in with two feet...I am happy to report that spring is not far off, and I am excited to embark on another great season of adventures with everyone who puts their trust in me....

*I feel really blessed to be able to take part in something so amazing*

and because no post is complete without a picture...or two...

I bring you "Winter Wonderland Ginger" (she is like my barbie, I get to dress her up and photograph her whenever I want..life is good!)



Just a little reminder that winter is not over....I took this yesterday morning after yet another snowfall...I can't believe this little leaf has held on through some pretty fierce Lethbridge hurricane force winds...he makes my heart smile....


*d300 & 50mm/1.4 lens (I'm using them! I'm using them!)

Hi Devon,
just stopping by after receiving an alert on your blog. I use a Nikon d70, and have for a couple years now and still am only half as skilled with it as I should be. It makes great photographs when I let it.
