I can't wait for spring flowers! I know it is right around the corner,and granted I'm in the desert so they will be sparse. Spring to me means a breath of fresh air,new life, the soft warmness before the harsh summer.

I sometimes get frustrated and fell like I'm spinning my wheels creatively. I simply do not have the the means(money, time, or freedom wise) to do all that I wish I could with my craft. Don't get me wrong I love my life...being a wife and mother is my greatest joy but I plan on more for myself than simply that, even if that has to wait for someday! I can't plant the seeds of my future dreams right now but you bet I am making sure I have all the knowledge I can get my hands on to make sure when the time to sow those seeds of success I am a well prepared gardener ready for a bountiful harvest!

Have spent most of the last week enjoying my husband being on vacation(leave in military jargon). Got an opportunity to shoot some HDR images at at a car show, new experience and defiantly don't have it down pat...but a nice start! I also have been catching the bellies and babies photography series on Creative Live and have learned so much.

I hate when people refer to photography as my hobby simply because I'm not booking clients left and right. I don't measure my success by slots on a calender or money in my pocket but by how much I grow and improve as an artist. Writers sometimes work years on a book before they let another soul see their work,yet they are still writers not simple people who like to doodle thoughts in notebooks!I look at images I took last year,3 years ago,and when my older children were babies and even though they are touching moments captured dating back to those earlier times there are details simple not present that move the image from cute to captivating. I can't wait to see what I have to offer in the years to come!

I was digging thew old cds and came across an unlabeled on. Popped it in and photos from October 2008 came up. The kids look great and I look happy,but truth be told I was going thew one of the hardest parts of my life. Those smile hid a lot of tears. I felt like life as I knew it was over...but it wasn't things had hit rock bottom but you can only go up from there! With time and effort everything turned around and got better.My darkest hour may be different from yours but if you just hang on and hold your head high....it will get better too.
