the start

...of a new venture. A nameless one, too. I've mentioned in posts before, my desire to one day start my very own photography business. The name though, swirls in my head and I can never quite settle on one.

Might I add, I am overtly amateur but simply love spending a couple of hours behind a camera helping capture those sweet moments that seem to pass so quickly.

If I don't start pointing the camera at other people, my son may quit his baby modeling for me. He may grow up to believe a neck strap is part of Mommy.

My first go-at-it, outside of Hudson Bear.

Have you ever met The Braly's? If you haven't, you should. They have been the greatest blessing to our family since our move to PA, and forever friends will they be. Brett and JR are man-friends and do man-friend things together {golf, golf, and golf}. Kyndal is my dearest and is always coupon-cutting for me, and my mommy mentor {she's one of the very best}, and Kaiser is Hudson's BFF. As beautiful as they are on the outside, they are on the inside. I'll let the pictures do the talking/writing...oh, and that babe of theirs...one of the most precious faces I've ever laid eyes on. Thank you Braly's for giving me some time with you, it was truly a pleasure.

Here's a small batch of my day with Brett, Kyndal, and Kaiser.

These are great pictures hope this works out for you, you seem to have a natural talent for this. I love to look at your pictures. Check out Tara Swain for inspiration she is on my side bar. She does amasing work. Good Luck.

Okay, really...WHY don't I live in Pittsburgh or you live in Philly? I am SERIOUSLY in love with photography and Photoshop (I know a LOT more about Photoshop than I do photography, but I'm still convinced I have plenty of time to learn and master the art of the camera). I can just picture us strolling around the suburbs of PA with cameras in tow and cute little Hudson. Wish our cities were closer!

Your pictures are amazing, I am so excited for you!!
