a day in the life | megan dill

There’s no doubt that our CMpros are busy. They have families to care for, jobs to maintain, many have businesses to look after, and they all know how to take stunning photographs. Have you ever wondered what a day looks like for one of the CMpros? How do they manage their time? When do they get it all done? Today, CMpro and CMmentor Megan Dill is giving you a peek inside a day in her life!

Since becoming a stay-at-home-mom when my 3-month-old was born this past summer, I’ve been reveling in spending quality time with both of my boys.  It was a bit too cold to play outside this day, so we had plenty of fun indoors.  A trip to the local library, time in our “school room”, yummy snacks, and lounging by the Christmas tree comprised our slow-paced day.  I can get used to this!

Author of Therapeutic Photography, Megan is a hobbyist photographer based in the lower Hudson Valley of New York where she lives with her musician husband and two young sons. She enjoys playing with light and shadow to create evocative images, and gravitates towards moody black and white processing in her work. Megan is a Canon shooter and uses an assortment of prime lenses, and also frequently turns to her Fuji X mirrorless system which includes several native and adapted lenses. Additionally, she shoots with several film cameras, to include 35mm and medium format. Cooking, baking, and making her own soap are a few of the things Megan enjoys along with goat cheese and quirky documentary films. Megan also has an undergraduate degree in Atmospheric Science and used to be employed as a meteorologist which explains her desire to go storm chasing with her camera in tow. Unfortunately, the thunderstorms where she lives in New York are not too exciting.
