The Places That Mean Something Project

I have created a personal project.

While I love doing sessions for my clients, I decided I needed to do something for myself as well.  Even if it is every so often and never planned, I needed something to exist.  So I sat back and thought.  I wanted a project that meant something to me.  A project that would challenge me, entice me, and in the end: Make me happy. 

That is how The Places That Mean Something Project came to be.

What is it?  It is simple:

Places that mean something to me.  There are places, locations, spots in the road that define us all.  A house where a memory lies.  A road that we once crossed.  A tree that we climbed, fell out of, and climbed again.  I want to remember those places.  Nothing lasts.  A building is torn down.  A road is replaced.  A tree is chopped.  While our memories never change, the places do.  So while I have the chance, I want to document those places that truly mean something to me.

There is a story behind everything.  And I will share it with you.  Through these places.

Maybe you will learn something new about me.  Maybe you will just enjoy the photo then walk away.  But I know what this will mean to me.  And I am beyond excited to collect my memories, one place at a time.

A Quick Hello

Why, hello there!  Life sure has been busy in my little corner of the world.
If you have been following me on Facebook, you see what I mean.

This summer I photographed 3 weddings.  Had numerous other sessions scattered in between.  Got bookings set for the summer of 2013.  Then last week I visited the island and somehow managed to squeeze in about 8 photo sessions in a one week vacation.

Am I crazy?
Oh, you know I am.
And I love it.

Now I am busy busy busy on that backlog.  I will try to hop on here more often to show you sneaks, previews, and more from the sessions I am working away on.  And if you notice an extended silence, just check my Facebook.  I live there.  Literally.  It is a nice home.

To leave you today, here is a lovely peek of Brianna on her wedding day.
