Day eight - project 365!

Yes, I know that the quality is not really up to par... I took it with my point and shoot camera.....

But this will probably be my very favorite photo for the year... Claire and Chrissy's very first visit to Disney world, I think this image shows exactly how they felt all day long! :)

Project 365 - Day SEVEN!

So who's gonna buy me a new pair?

Ive made it a whole week so far.. wonder if it will make it all the way through the year!?


I still do not have a clue as to what I am doing with it. I have been playing with it mostly set to automatic to get a feel for what I am doing. But, when I took the girls out to model the other day, I ran out of decent natural light, and decided to give the flash a whirl. I don't remember what my settings were and dont feel like hunting them down right now, but I did shoot this one manually :) YAY go me! Hopefully it will not take me too long to learn how to use it!!

Days 5 & 6

I almost forgot day six! I have not been feeling all that well lately, so I am going to blame it on that.

Anywho... here is day five. This is from one of our modeling sessions, I was a little worried about the size of these flowers, BUT I actually really love them. (Claire has a pink one!)

And day six. My original baby girl :) the girls were taunting her with a treat. Don't worry, she did eventually get the treat.

My girls, My little Supermodels!! :)

I took some screenshots of where the girls can be found on the web so far :)

Claire and Chrissy as the Korker Bows page header :)

And Chrissy on the FRONT PAGE of Mama Always Said!!!!

AHHHH *pinch* am I dreaming?

As some of you may know I have Claire and Chrissy signed with Ellie Bean & Models. I got an email today from Michelle the marketing director asking me if I would like to meet up with the owner  of Ellie Bean & Models, who also happens to be the amazing photographer, Alexi Kilmer of Child Essence Photography!!! She will be in Miami the end of this month for a photo-shoot, that I am invited to watch, and maybe even help out a little bit! I am over the moon. I want to go so bad.. hopefully everything will work out perfectly and I can go. Did I mention that said photographer also emailed me and complimented my photography?? I am so excited!!! Please, please, PLEASE... let this all work out!!!

& so you are not without a beautiful photo to view on this post.. Here is one of Kamryn modeling a gorgeous Headband by Bambaroos  (it is also a hat ;)

Project 365 - Day 4

Don't let this image fool you.. this session was a complete disaster :(

At least I got this one. This one that I really love. I can see both of their personalities so clearly in this one :)

(and yes Claire is wearing the same shirt as the previous post...... it was only for the pictures since this was the only shirt I thought would match this bow.. the session was for the bows.. haha.)

Project 365 - Day Threeeeee!

Funny thing about this one, is that I thought I had completely screwed up this set of pictures. Earlier today I had been trying to figure out how to use my new flash and changed a bunch of settings.. I realized when I was done with these that there was one I had NOT changed back... I was sorta bummed. I just figured I would fix them in photoshop later. WELL whatever that setting was (btw I have no clue what it is or what it does) gave me this AMAZING picture. I very rarely ever get Claires skin tone right.. and VOILA! there it is!! I am so excited. I am going to change my camera back to this mysterious setting and read up on it :)

Just one more

I promise this will be my last post tonight.. I really need to get into bed anyway.

This was one of those things I saw last year... but was afraid to try since I thought I would fail miserably... I dont think I did bad at all.. Im thinking if I had used a different lens.. it probably would have looked different.....

So I was blog-hopping. Totally normal for me when I came across a post on how to take your photo from this:

To this awesome piece of art!! How freaking cool is this????


Project 365 - Last Hint of Christmas...

January 1, 2011

Project 365

  Heard of it before? I first heard of it last year and I wanted to do it, but I didn't see the point in starting in the middle of the year. All it is, is documenting your year with one photo every day.. we will see if I can do this... So now here we are Jan. 1, 2011. And I don't actually have an awesome photo to share.. but I do have one that I took today..... this morning... EARLYY this morning, say 12:05am-ish? HA! That will work won't it?

AND. Yes I know it is not the greatest image. I took it with my little point and shoot with two very hyper, sweaty little girls, BUT it was taken today. I really wish I would have pulled out my camera this morning after seeing Chrissys insane gorgeous outfit choice. That really would have been perfect!

OHHH, and on another note, I am combining my personal blog with this one... for obviouse reasons.. if I don't, then this one will hardly be touched.. and plus this one has the pretty layout :)
