Building a portfolio

So pretty much as far back as I can remember I have been interested in photography. I can remember when I was about 8 and I got a camera and film for my birthday I think I took a whole role of film on my cat. I have always loved creating images (especially of people). Well for a little while in school I majored in photography, but about a year and a half in a decided it wasn't where I could make money and changed. Well to make a long story short I have decided to get back into. It really is a passion of mine. So here I go. Here are some of the shots I have been working on lately.

This is my way cute nephew Alex. His sweet parents let me come take pictures of him. I wont lie it was hard shooting an infant, but I got some good ones.

This is McKenzie. Her sweet mother asked me to take some photos of her and her family. This is by far one of my favorites. I am slowly learning photoshop and it is paying off!

This is our best friends baby Connor. He is so cute. His parents asked me to take photos of him. Way fun!

This is my niece Jessica. Her mom asked me to take pictures of her for her baptism announcements.

This is the picture she chose to use. My favorite!

This is my sweet sister in law Sarah. She was a sport and let me take pictures of her. This is my favorite I think she looks angelic!

This is another sister in law Jen. She was also willing to let me take photos. Love love this one!

And another sister in law Bayley. She was so fun to shoot. She brought props and everything!

Well I will keep working on it. I find that it is hard to learn new things these days, but slowly my brain is picking things up. I am working on using my camera better and learning how to edit the photos. One day I hope to post a picture that is so amazing no one believes I did it. But until then I will keep plugging away.
