Be sure to follow the circle around to see what the other ladies have been up to this month.  Up next is my friend, Jenny.  You can see her post here.

The Traveling Dress Collaborative https://2bseenphotography.com/blog/2018/8/the-traveling-dress-collaborative 9 women, 4 countries, 1 dress. Here is my story with the Cream Lace-Top Maxi for the Traveling Dress Collective.

Right away when I signed up for the project, I knew I wanted to use my step-daughter, as she is one of my favorite models. She also happens to have a gorgeous baby girl, so it was a given that I would include her as well. For the other set I went darker, using an abandoned hotel in a nearby town, which I had been dying to photograph for some time. The traveling dress project was the perfect excuse to get out and use that location. I'm thrilled with how my vision came to life and it was an honor to work with the other ladies on this project.

Happy Father's Day to all the dog dads out there!

(what?!) We got together as a family to celebrate and I had a blast chasing the kids around while they played Stick Wars, a time honored tradition around here.  I love seeing kids use their imaginations, especially in this day and age.

The Flash, number one and two. So I was out with my nieces and nephews and I have SO many photos like this. Kids or a dog running by in a flash.

2018 Shoot & Share Results https://2bseenphotography.com/blog/2018/3/2018-shoot-share-results Last year I had so much fun participating in the Shoot & Share contest that I decided to enter again it again in 2018.  My goal was to do better than I did last year and I accomplished that, with badges on 25 of the 50 photos that I entered, two of which placed in the top 100 in the Pets/Animals category.  There were 412,379 photos entered in the contest.  It was their biggest year yet.  If you're looking for inspiration then this is the contest to follow along with.  Plus, it's just fun.  I enjoyed following along with some photographer friends and cheering them on.  I'm already looking forward to next year.

89th place out of 14,426 photos in the Pets/Animals category.

92nd place out of 14,426 photos in the Pets/Animals category.

Photos that were finalists were in the top 3.1%!  This image placed 260 out of 35,570!

These short winter days are killer. I only have 30 minutes of daylight left when I get home from work. I'm so over it.

Friends, it has been an honor and a wonderful experience for me these last two years and I will miss our group projects.  Until next time...

2017 Year in Review https://2bseenphotography.com/blog/2017/12/2017-year-in-review The end of the year...well it's nostalgic for me.  It's a time of reflection and optimism for the new year going forward, all at the same time.  Mikey and I would like to say thank you to all of our wonderful clients and new friends that we've made along the way.  Here are some favorites from this past year.  And while we are slowing down some for next year, we are looking forward to the adventures that this journey still has in store for us.  Happy Holidays and here's to an amazing 2018!

The Salisbury Family https://2bseenphotography.com/blog/2017/9/the-salisbury-family I met Mikey and her children at the Winston Churchill Memorial in Fulton, Missouri for a dramatic family photo session.  These photos are near and dear to my heart, as Mikey and I have been friends for 22 years or so.  I have known these three kids since they were born.  Now, Matt is attending William Woods College and the twins are sophomores in high school.  Where does the time go?

The Isaacks Family https://2bseenphotography.com/blog/2017/9/the-isaacks-family When Valerie contacted me to ask about a lifestyle session on their hobby farm I was over the moon!  This type of session is right up my alley.  Beautiful family, beautiful home, and a beautiful farm.  What's not to love?  It's so wonderful to see clients embracing the idea that photographs can tell their story as it is right now.  And hopefully the experience is more enjoyable for everyone involved when they're allowed to be themselves.  I know it would be for me.

Up next is the always incredible Melissa Hines.  Be sure to follow the circle around.  You won't want to miss this.
