Now, I do have to preface this by saying I personally, know nothing about photography! I hardly take any pictures (I'm trying to become better about that) but I do love to browse photography blogs.
I wanted to post a few of my favorites for you to check out.
First off, Jen Herem Photography
I first met Jen on a message board (I know, I seem to put that in every post!) a few years ago. I watched her start up this photography business that has taken off like a rocket! I love her style and she does so many fun things. She's very creative in so many ways. She started doing boudoir sessions earlier this year and they turned out so great! Very tasteful and classy, what a great gift idea for your hubby. (If you're brave enough...which I'm not :) She's recently started doing weddings as well and she does such an amazing job! She did this birth story for her nephew when her sister was giving birth, loved it! How awesome to have something like that captured in such an amazing way!
Second, Alisha Shaw of One Memory at a Time Photography
Alisha is a friend of a friend. I've had my eye on her blog for awhile now and yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a 1 day digi scrap workshop that she was teaching. Loved it! She taught us so many fun things. I can't say I can open up photoshop right away and whip out some amazing layouts just yet, but she gave us the tools we needed to get started! This recent bridal shoot she did is so amazing! Gorgeous bride, gorgeous photos, gorgeous colors and probably the most fabulous shoes I've ever seen! Loved it! I love the urban feel to this family shoot she did. So great. Someone asked yesterday if she could show us how to "slim ourselves down" and she told us the most amazing story. She talked about how so many women put off family photos "til I lose 10 lbs" etc, (come on, you know you all do!) and how important it is to capture who you are now, because you are beautiful no matter what. She stressed the importance of capturing the memory for our children and loved ones regardless of our size, because that might be the last picture they have of us. It was such a great experience learning from her yesterday!
Third, Lynette Thiriot of Photography By Lynette
I've known Lynette since we were kids! We grew up here together in this small town that I still call home. She's just started her business a little over a year ago and she does a great job! She did our family pictures this past October and I loved them! This past spring, she did a maternity shoot for our good friend who was about to have her baby. Turned out so cute! I loved how this family shoot turned out too! Also, Lynette has offered to do a giveaway for a mini session on See it! Love it! Win it! next month! Be sure to stay tuned for that!
Be sure to check these girls out if you are ever in their area and in need of a fabulous photographer!
Also, let me know of any great photography blogs you like, I love checking them out!
