New Things

“I like my job because it involves learning. I like being around smart people who are trying to figure out new things.”Bill Gates

I came across this quote from Bill Gates this morning. I totally agree with the sentiment. I have found that being a photographer is not just about creating visually pleasing images, it seems to be all about learning new things. New software, new equipment, new ways of marketing, new ideas. The amount of "new" stuff to absorb is breathtaking, sometimes scary, but never, ever boring!

Sometimes, I need to let the left side of my brain rest and let the right side play for a bit so I am working on new backgrounds and sets, both for the studio and for 8.5 acre portrait park. Here is one that I have been having fun with. I am calling it "Silver Tiles" but really need a catchier name, don't you think?

Newborn Babies, Life's tiny miracles

I got to meet baby Emma today. At 10 days old she is still settling in to this life on the outside. She misses Mommy's nice warm tummy but she loves music and Daddy's touch.
