Photography is definitely something I am passionate about. Each year my goal is to challenge myself to grow and become more creative as a photographer. Last year you may have seen on my blog that I participated in weekly photography challenge with my Lens Baby mom's group. It was definitely fun and I felt like I learned quite a bit from it.
This year I have the opportunity to participate in a monthly blog circle with a group of extremely talented and creative women. I know these women through Clickin Moms - which is an absolutely wonderful online forum for photographers. How it works is each month we are given a new challenge that will encourage us to try new techniques with our photography and will hopefully help stretch our creativity. This month's challenge was "Up Close Portraiture".
As a photographer often one of my goals is to never "chop" any limbs off a person when I take pictures. So I make a point to step back some so that I can capture everything. So this was definitely a new perspective for me. And it is an awesome way to capture all of those little details I hope to never forget. Here are a few of the pictures I took of my little girl and boy one day while we were talking and playing on the couch.
I'm so excited about this new photography adventure!! Please follow our circle around to see some more amazing "Up Close Portraiture". You can check out Boston, MA portrait photographer Lisa Sheehan of Lisa Sheehan Photography's post here next. You'll absolutely love her work!!
