New Theme

Personal, The Artist Life

Fiercelings,

I was scrolling through my blog and felt super bleh about my theme and the way it looks so I looked at some new themes and volia! I hope you like the way it looks now. I hope it is a bit more user friendly. I tried to find a theme that highlights my photos and provides more eye candy.

While I was updating my theme I went through some old posts and came across this one. I wrote it in June and I was talking about how moving to Florida was at least 9 months away but I was of the mindset that we should just move immediately or at least sooner. It’s funny how here I am 5 months later already in Florida. We have been here almost 3 weeks. I’d be lying if I said I was not a bit homesick. I am happy we’re here but simultaneously I am missing my family, friends and the familiar. With that said I am excited about making this city our home for awhile.

The one wonderful thing about being in Jacksonville of course is the beach. My daughter loves the beach. When we first went to the beach I thought she might be scared or hesitant to have the waves wash over her but to my delight she is fearless when it comes to the beach. She runs toward the waves much to the horror of her father and myself. I told my husband that maybe we should just let her fall head first into some saltwater because then she wouldn’t be so keen to tread into deeper and deeper water. But he looked at me like a crazy person just for suggesting the idea. Anyway, it sure does make for some fabulous photos.

I guess there are worse places to live then somewhere that enables you to go to the beach in November!

P.S. Let me know what you think of the new theme!

Black, White and Red All Over

Baby Love, Fierce Photography

What does a canvas board, some black and white checkered fabric, and a staple gun get you? The perfect background for little babies! I had my hubby take some shots of me with it too and it really only works vertically. I need to make a bigger one for adults because I prefer landscape or horizontal rather. Thankfully though I was able to get fabulous shots of my little girl!

Happy!

Roar! I am happy!

Glamour!

Model baby! I can feel the glamour!

Last Film Shoot (For Now)

Photography

Drum roll please…hmm mm, my Canon 60D has arrived in all of it’s glory and it is fabulous! I have taken only about 500 shots on it thus far. Hehe. But before I share photos from my camera (I am currently considering naming her Alice. I have identified the camera as a she for sure. We shall see what transpires in that regard.) I thought that it would be appropriate to share the last roll of film that I shot and developed! So without further ado…

I don’t necessarily identify myself as a cowgirl or country girl. I love country music and more importantly country boys (Good thing my hubby doesn’t read my blog!) but I have always been far more drawn to the city or the beach. I own two really nice country boots that were definitely investment pieces when it comes to my wardrobe but that’s what they are in my wardrobe, fashion statements. So lovely little ole me who owns cowgirl boots for fashion reasons isn’t all that country except for the lovely week in March when my family was out of town and I took over their “little” job of feeding retired race horses. Since I am planning on being a photographer I had thought that I should capitalize on the fact that I have access to a farm and oh my goodness six horses! I am quite happy with the results. I should have gotten out to the farm earlier because I was losing light but either way I am pretty happy with the finished shots.

Horses are fascinating. They are rather challenging to capture in a good spot so I definitely have a lot more respect for all the shots I’ve been in the past of horses. This guy gave me a little tilt of his head and neck though which is darling.

Naturally, Miss Isabelle was along for the excursion and was a bundle of peachiness as usual.

I’ve enjoyed using film and will probably use the 3 rolls I have left but from here on out it is wonderful Canon 60D =D

Picture Day!

Photography

Believe it or not it was 70 degrees yesterday! So if winter blues have got you down and you are ready for Spring like me, hopefully these beautiful photos that I took at a park/meadow will cheer you up!

Just look at her smile!

Finally! Fierce Photography

Photography

My adventures with my Canon A-1 have finally hit a good note! The first roll of film that I took to get developed was blank, the developer said. The second roll of film was half blank with only 4 or 5 photos able to be developed and they were baaad. Far too dark type of bad. Finally! I was able to get a roll developed as in 12 prints! Ha! Where the other 12 shots went I am not sure but I am so happy that I finally have some shots worthy of sharing!

Without further ado…

Baby love! My sweet little gal is a great model! Besides the first 3 photos with the gorgeous lighting that I shared above, the rest are way too dark but I’m learning and hopefully tomorrow or whenever I am shooting next I will remember what I was doing for those shots and can replicate it! Part of me thinks I was just shooting when it was too dark outside and I didn’t have a flash. Ahh well, learnings.

Fiercely counting down the days until I can purchase my digital camera,
