I just returned from a trip down to California, I came back feeling so inspired and encouraged. My trip consisted of some much needed family time as well as a workshop I attended given by Wildflowers Photography. If you have not checked out this artist, please do www.wildflowersphotography.com. Joy’s work is stunning and so creative; she captures simple moments in time and makes them into beautiful works of art. I picked Wildflowers Photography because I love her work and hope I can convey similar emotions with my photography. I not only learned so much but also was so touched by Joy’s passion and how real she was. I had the opportunity to meet some other really amazing photographers that are on my same journey. I will be posting more images from the workshop soon so stay tuned.
But one thing that just made my heart smile was when I visited some family in Temecula. This is Aaron, my cousin. Aaron is holding a picture of himself that I took in my very first Black & White photo class oh so many years ago. I took this class right out of high school and fell in love with photography. My life has taken many turns since that class and I only recently have re-discovered photography in the last 4 years. But it was so fun to see this image up on a wall. My first child portrait….. I just wanted to share
