Tell Me a Story

7 May

Sadly, this is my last week of Brooke Snow’s amazing class. I always get so sad when her classes end. This week we had two assignments. Part one was to tell a story with only one picture. Part two was to take a self-portrait.

Time for some honesty. A couple of times during this class, I got a little down because I didn’t have kids of my own to take pictures of. So many classmates used their own kids I just had my husband and dogs. But this week I realized something really important. Someday I will have kids. I will either be a mother of adopted children or I will finally be blessed with a child of my own and I will take hundreds of pictures of them. But right now? Right now, it’s my husband and my dogs. They are my family and that is such a wonderful thing. I need to document my life as it is right now because I don’t want to look back on my life someday and be sad because I took this time for granted. So, I had a GREAT time this week. My family completely ROCKS!

My first shot is my story shot. And this? This is my gorgeous husband. I mean come on! He’s so hot. (Click images to enlarge.)

The next shot was where I had to get in front of the camera. I pretty much never do this so I’m really glad Brooke made us do it this week. We had so much fun getting this shot. My remote broke so I had to keep running back and forth and was laughing so hard. And I totally LOVE this shot. Like, I am going to order prints and hang it in my house. I can’t get over how great Josh looks!

Here’s a couple extra I got while we were hanging out by the trains. I am so fortunate to have a husband who is willing to do this. And now I have more pictures of him to swoon over!

Brooke, thank you again for an amazing experience. I really feel as if my photography skills and confidence has grown so much over the past four weeks. And if any of you guys are ever thinking of taking an online photography course, I absolutely recommend Brooke’s classes!

    These are really amazing photos shutterbug. Especially the luggage one. I admit that I know nothing about photography, but maybe that makes the feedback all the better. If you can take one photo and evoke emotion from someone that doesn’t know anything about lighting or angles.. wow! I have to travel for my work sometimes, and he looks exactly how I feel.
    It’s wonderful how you two support each other’s hobbies and interests. You’re setting yourselves up for a lifetime of happiness. The photo with both of you in it is really well setup, you guys are beautiful together, and hey.. if you get to kiss a few extra times until you get the shot just right…what a shame. 😉 Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
