Growing Inspiration

First of all, it’s been way too long since I’ve updated! I’ve been putting it off because I have had lots to do around the house lately and because Maddie Summer got her shots and her teething is killing her!

When we got her shots the other day, she was totally miserable that evening and some of the day after. I felt so bad for my sweet girl… all she wanted to do was cuddle with mommy or daddy. It’s a special feeling, to be able to cuddle your child and know, without words or their verbal confirmation, that YOU are the only thing that can make them feel the best they can feel… I love that. I hate that my baby girl was feeling so terrible and had such a fever, but I love being able to be there for her and comfort her.

In other news! Lately I’ve been easily inspired by tons of things. I have a couple of photoshoots scheduled for Monday and they’re both creative and conceptual, the type of photography I started out doing. The kind of photography that owns my heart and soul. I should have never allowed myself to have such a long absence from something that makes me so happy.

Brian’s co-worker gave me a film camera with two lenses that he bought a couple of years ago for a photography class. He doesn’t use them anymore and offered them to Brian since he know I’m a photographer, and Brian knew I would love them and took them. I bought some film and tested it out… and I fell in love. I could feel myself glowing. I was meant to be a photographer! It makes me a certain typ of happy that I don’t feel with anything else. 🙂

Speaking of photography… I changed the name of my photography! I’m now Blooming Rose Photography. Is that a little cheesy? 😉 I don’t care! I love it. I think it really represents me and my life and I want to be able to represent myself in a way that I can shine through each photo. You know?

Here are some recent photos I’ve taken!

I had to stand very still for this shot… and for a long time. Every time a hummingbird would come up to the feeder, the most I would move was my hand to focus my manual Rokinon lens! And then when it would fly away, I’d inch a little bit closer, going unnoticed by the next hummingbird to fly up and get a drink.

That’s it for now 🙂 I’ll try to keep updated more often!
