relishing the everyday | by katie jennings

As a kid I was a bit of a risk taker, but also a very sensitive person which I still am today. I think those attributes still aid me as I continue to grow into my photography and film making career. The risk - is sharing your life with the world through photography and films, especially since I didn't dive into the world of social media until 2014. As a lover of small tribes of close friends, the thought of sharing my every day moments on social media was terrifying.

lesson: self portraits - made simple | with kristen ryan

Self portraiture has been a personal project I started for myself two years ago. As my project developed, it slowly started to change its meaning. While it was still motivation to get in the frame with my children or alone, it started to have a deeper affect. I was seeing myself outside of my role: wife and mother; a self I hadn't seen for years. I was seeing beauty in myself that I  seemed to overlook in years past. It may have just been a small part of me, but still a part of me I had never been able to connect with before.

hindsight | with robyn chubey

Hindsight. It’s one of my favorite things in the world because it’s what makes sense of the past. I love working backwards through my life to figure out the "why’s" of how I got here, seeing all the clues that were telling me what paths to take, and finding meaning and purpose for the hard things I felt had no meaning at the time.

Because every moment did, and does, have purpose.

finding your home | with neka rae

I still have so much to learn in this business and photography. I'm looking forward to continuing my growth and evolving as a person and an artist. One thing I do know is... I will not limit myself as to what type of subject I photograph. There is emotion to be captured in all aspects of life and I feel I was chosen to capture these intimate moments in my clients lives, as well as mine. I believe that every chapter in my life, every trial and tribulation, has molded me as the artist I am today.

what's in your bag | jamie eilts??

We've all been there, you post an image on social media and receive comments praising your beautiful work, and then inevitably, you get that dreaded comment we all loathe, “Wow!  Your camera takes great pictures.”  It makes you cringe because, yes, you do love that precious camera of yours, but we all know that a good photographer can take a great picture with any camera.  There’s so much more to it than just the camera/lens. But if you want to know, take a peek in my bag...
