Photography Blogs We Love

I am blogger... and I became a blogger because I LOVE reading other blogs. I get inspired looking at the work of others...I get motivated to "decorate my walls" after seeing the beautiful things others have done...I get pure jealous sometimes looking at things I'll never have...but most of all...I get my creative juices following. 
I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photography blogs...and I have many! I'm sure you know about most of these...but just in case you don't, I'm happy to introduce you to some blog friends!
The first is Laura Winslow Photography. She is a photographer in the Phoenix area and she has one of the best "fun and colorful" blogs out there! She has a weekly series called "Wall Art Wednesday" and I love it! She shows many great displays of wall art (hence the name)...and I look forward to it every Wednesday!

Another favorite place is the Clickin Moms blog
They have a wonderful forum for photographers but if you aren't ready to join a forum, the blog is a great place to learn and be inspired! They also a fun store for products just for photographers. 

Check back tomorrow for more of our favorite blogs!!

Happy Monday!

It's Monday...and it's Spring! The birds are singing outside my window as I type...and the flowers are blooming. This weekend we took a drive and I was in awe of all of the wisteria blooming here in Georgia. It's amazing! It is my favorite flower of all time...and it only blooms for short time. But it takes my breath away with its beauty! The picture below is an iphone picture so don't judge.

I'm still recovering from my trip to North Carolina last week. I flew into Raleigh for a super fun project but I can't give all the details yet. I starred in (still makes me laugh when I say that) a promotional video for a new product from a major company...crazy exciting and I was so nervous! I filmed with another blogger who was amazing to work with (she's a pro when it comes to filming so she made it fun and helped calm me)...soon I'll share all the juicy info about the filming. And you'll get to see the video (unless I completely made a fool of myself...then you might not see...I'm kidding...maybe). I was feeling good about it all until I saw a picture of myself filming..and it's sad when you realize what you really look like instead of that picture you have in your head...I think I still envision that younger, skinnier, cuter version I left behind years ago. is what it is...we all get older and should be thankful for that...just wish getting cuter was the part of the aging package..not the opposite :)

Now for something fun...cute chairs! At least we can make our surroundings look good, right? Love these chairs from Joss and Main...super cute for a studio or home office...and a great price!
