black and white ballerina photo by Kate Luber

my photography journey | kate luber

My photo journey began when…wait for it…my daughter was born! Surprise!

I guess the seeds were planted long before that. My uncle is a photographer in San Francisco. We don’t see him often, but once a year, he visits and brings his fancy camera. He not-so-secretly follows everyone around during holiday gatherings and takes candid shots of the family. We don’t see the photos for a year. When he comes again, he brings the photos from last year. It’s always fun to look back at the previous year…and also hope you’re not wearing the same outfit…(…)

Personal Photo Project: the joy project

The Joy Project is a 365 daily photo journal.

I have captured my children with my camera almost daily for as long as I can remember. I love to document the everyday beauty of life. It helps me to slow down, to look around our home daily, and see the many gifts (often over looked) that I am grateful for.(…)

Personal Photo Project: dates with my kids

This year I started a personal photography project called “Dates with my Kids.” I have monthly dates with each of my three kiddos and photograph our experiences. At the end of the year, I will create a photo book for each of them. Our dates are often simple, usually a coffee shop, building a Lego kit, even grocery shopping or a movie at home.(…)

The photography journey of Mississippi photographer Liz Behm

my photography journey | liz behm

My journey begins like many other moms. In 2008, I was a new mom and I was so frustrated at always “missing the shot”. I had thousands of blurry, boring snapshots of my son and no real understanding of what it took to get the shots I was drooling over.(…)

Fisherman photo essay by Vironica Golden

Personal Photo Project: fishermen

In Newport Beach, California there’s no better place to buy fresh seafood than directly from the fishermen. In 1891, a local fisherman grew tired of selling his fish to wholesalers and founded Dory Fleet Fish Market, where fishermen could sell directly to the public. Not long after I moved to Newport Beach a friend of mine told me about it and being a seafood lover I shortly became a regular. Today many of the fishermen have switched from dory boats to commercial boats, which are required to dock at the nearby Newport and Huntington Harbor. Now, just one boat keeps the Dory Fleet Market tradition alive. I really wanted to document the dory boat tradition so I decided to do a photo essay on the routine of fishermen that sell their fish at the Dory Fleet Market.(…)

A day in the life with California photographer Jennifer Jabbour

Every day in my house starts out with my morning cup of joe. It’s what gets me going. I’ll typically drink my coffee (always iced) while the kids sleep in or watch cartoons. The dogs just kind of hang around, waiting for someone to drop some food or open the door.(…)

a day in the life | liz behm

Hi guys! Here’s a quick peek into our crazy life! When I took this DITL, our youngest wasn’t even two weeks old yet. So things were a bit more crazy than usual. And it was one of the dreariest days so far this fall, so my usual light filled home was a complete cave! I’m not a fan of the dark and gloomy winters! Anyways, here’s a look at a “typical” day as we figure out life with 5 kids!(…)

The photography journey of Mickie DeVries of Fresh Modern Photography

my photography journey | mickie devries

2004 was the year my son was born, and while I always loved taking photos before that, his birth made me want to document every waking moment of his life. I did not yet own a DSLR, but I began scrapbooking and began playing around with images in Photoshop. (…)

My Photography Journey by Lauren Sanderson

Like most things in my life, I procrastinated writing this blog post for way too long. I couldn’t really figure out where to begin or what y’all would think was important enough to talk about, but then I just decided to do what my Type A personality does best, and that’s go in order from the beginning. I can’t promise that this will be short, but if nothing else I hope to show that progress(…)

A Day In The Life with Kelly Rodriguez
Hi! Here’s a little peek into a typical day in our house.

We are new to NYC, moved up from Miami, and are enjoying our first real change of seasons!

My husband is in his 1st year of a medical residency, so he is long gone before we even wake up in the morning. So our mornings typically look like this… both kids in my bed.

After a little cuddle time, it’s time to get ready(…)

A day in the life with Florida photographer Winnie Bruce

A Day In The Life with Winnie Bruce
I’m usually pretty good at documenting little things here and there. I possibly might have expected a bit too much from my family when I decided to take photos after a 25-hour flight, and adjusting to a 13-hour time difference.

My kids and I went home to the Philippines for almost four months. Prior to that, we did a cross-country move from California to Florida. We haven’t had a typical day in the life(…)

Hi! I’m so excited to give you a little peek into my little workspace and at my gear (…pretty minimalist gear).

Okay, so my workspace is pretty new and a little bland right now. We just moved up to NYC (Queens to be exact) this summer from Miami, FL(…)

A Day In The Life with Lisa Benemelis
My day begins at 5:15 in the morning even though it is my birthday and I would much rather hang out in bed a little longer.  I face the day with a hot cup of coffee and 15 minutes of peace and quite before heading out to meet my oldest daughter at the trail for a long run.

My two daughters and I are training for the Women’s Nike Half Marathon that we will(…)

Why I’m happy with my gear

I’ve always loved photography. Ever since I was a kid – which was a long time ago!

So long in fact, that I remember doing an “Introduction to Photography” course by correspondence. I was about 15 at the time, and living on my family’s farm in rural Australia. Each month there was an assignment, and I would mail my image that had been developed at the local pharmacy, to the instructor in Sydney. She would then record her feedback on a(…)

A Day In The Life with Elizabeth Blank
I initially chose Saturday, September 13th as my “day” because that was the day that I was traveling home from Click Away and, in my mind, it was going to be a calm day of travel filled with amazing architecture, interesting light and composition, and the comforts of home at the end of a long day. Well, isn’t it funny how our perception can be so different from actual reality? In reality, my(…)
