Project 52…

Not sure I can call this Project 52 anymore.  More like project 8.  I give props to those who can keep up with Project 365, I am lucky to know what day it is sometimes.  This weekend I treated myself to a trip to Mohonk Mountain House.  If you live in the Hudson Valley, you…

Project 52, Texture…

This Mother’s Day, my darling hubby surprised  the boys and I with a trip to NYC.  He got us tickets to the King Tut Exhibit at the Discovery Times Square Exposition, a must see!  Unfortunately, no cameras allowed inside.  On the outside however, that is a different story.   Those who follow me or have worked…

Project 52, Out On The Lake…

This  past weekend some friends and I got together for a workshop/reunion at a lake house just north of Nashville.   We had one afternoon of crazy weather in which it was full sun for an hour and then storms moved in that had us thinking a tornado was coming.   An hour later, the sun…

Project 52…

With the craziness of moving to a new studio, I have feel back on Project 52.  One of our latest assignments was to shoot what you want.  The Easter Bunny was kind enough to bring the boys endless hours of joy in the shape of a bubble machine.  So after a long car ride back…

Project 52…

After two weeks of straight travel, it is time for  a little catch up with Project 52.  This weeks assignment was food.  Now, I never really had a thing for cupcakes until my 2nd pregnancy.  For the first 3 months I felt awful and didn’t want to eat a thing.  Finally after weeks of feeling…

Project 52, Details…

I was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone with this photo.  One, my Project 52 assignment of “Details” and 2, my son’s Valentine’s picture.  Last year we did the lollipops, this year I wanted to do something different.   I thought well, I could have him hold a cut out heart, nah.  Then it…

Project 52, Shoot From The Hip…

This wasn’t as easy of a challenge as I expected.  The goal was to get a great shot from doing just as the title says, shooting from the hip, no peeking through the view finder.  On many occasions, I aim from above or shoot from below.  I have had some great shots in the past,…

Project 52- Week 2

I know, 2 photos in a week, but  I am a tad behind my photog peers so I am now playing catch up.  Today I had coffee with a couple of friends over in Poughkeepsie so I thought I would swing down by the Hudson River to check out the ice. Just happened to have…

Project 52…

What is “Project 52?”  Last April, I met a wonderful group of gals in Atlanta.  We have continued a great relationship after our workshop and talk on a daily basis.  We are always looking for ways to challenge ourselves and keep our photography fresh.  One girl introduced us to a great way to step out…
