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

by Jayne Cho

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(…)

Member Share: science photography

One of our favorite posts here on the Clickin Moms blog each month is this one, the monthly member share.  We love throwing a theme out to the forum members and seeing how they interpret it.  This month, guest judge Jo Lien chose the theme of ‘science’ and there were so many fantastic and varying images submitted.  These were a few of Jo’s favorites…

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(…)

my photography journey | samantha covert

My Photography Journey by Samantha Covert

My photography journey began in 2008, when my husband gifted me my first DSLR (a Nikon D40) just before our wedding.  I had no idea how to adjust any of the dials, but was happy that even in auto mode my images were better than those I took with my little point and shoot.

My interest and motivation for capturing images really ramped up after my first child was born in 2009.

I became quite photo-crazed soon after his(…)

A Day In The Life with Elena Blair
It is the first rainy morning this school year!  Daddy is already off to work and has a late meeting so he won’t be home until after bedtime tonight.  Bummer.  Everyone always climbs into our bed first thing.  I call it a Marlo love fest as the older two love to start their day loving on their baby sister.

Time to change the babies diaper and get her dressed.  Meanwhile, I encourage the other(…)

A Day In The Life with Melissa Gibson
A day in the life at my house is usually quite busy.  Things can get a little hairy with three girls, two dogs, one husband, soccer, horse riding lessons and homework.  I chose to photograph a typical Tuesday around here.  I’m now realizing that I somehow missed photographing homework time or all girls having their teeth brushing time, but I assure you that we did both.

Our day begins at 5:45 in the morning. (…)

happy 4th birthday to the daily project!

happy 4th birthday to the daily project!

by Lisa Benemelis
It is hard to believe that the Daily Project was first created four years ago.

It started in the hope that it would encourage participants to shoot and share on a regular basis.  Over the years, it has grown to be so much more than a place to view beautiful work.  It has given opportunities to laugh and cry with one another, travel to far away places, enjoy each other’s lives, pay closer attention to details, and enjoy new(…)

A Day In The Life with Marissa Gifford
Hi there, everyone! I’m excited to share a special Day in the Life with you! Every summer our family visits a cabin on Swan Lake in NW Montana with my husband’s family. He’s one of 7 children, so it’s a week filled with fun, family, relaxation, reading, card games, water sports and cousin heaven for the little ones. This place holds a very special place in my family’s heart and visiting is always(…)

A Day In The Life with Annie Morris
August is my favorite month.  The weather is warm, but there is a coolness in the air. The crowds of tourists drift away and we are left to squeeze in as much summer fun as we can before the sun sets. This is what a day in the life on Cape Cod looks like.

7 reasons to avoid eye contact in your photos

7 reasons to avoid eye contact in your photos

by Lacey Meyers

We have all heard it said that the eyes are the window to the soul.

And in a photograph, eye-contact holds great power in connecting the viewer to the subject.  Sharp, intentional focus on the eyes plus lovely catchlights is a timeless combination and one that most of us set out to embrace early on in our photography.

But as my children’s photographer, I know I’m not alone in recognizing the challenge that that is time and again.  As well(…)

My Photography Journey by Sarah Kossuch

My journey.

Most of the time, when you read about photographers, there, at some point, was a love for photography early on. I was not one of those. To be honest, it took me a bit to sit down and really dig into my mind of when did my journey start?

I noticed my love for photography really hit home in 2004-2005. At that time my oldest son was 2-3 years old and I wanted nice pictures of(…)

So…this is my office. I love having a space dedicated to getting work done (also – that means I can claim it as a tax deduction…which I am all for). I tend to browse and do non-work related stuff on my iPad while I sit at my dining(…)

My Photography Journey by Winnie Bruce

I didn’t start my photography journey with the goal for it to be what it is. I guess that is the beauty of life though. We are brought to different avenues, and then we make choices of what eventually would be best for us.

In the summer of 2008, my best friend Bruce, who’s a chef, brought over a Canon Rebel XSi to our house. We chatted about how he was going to take the camera to(…)

Welcome to my daily life as a mom of four, a wife and a full time wedding photographer in the month of July!

Every morning varies whether I’m up first or the kids. It just so happened that on this particular day, I was up first. The living room is quiet however; it’s the calm before the storm – ha!

I’m a HUGE coffee gal. If I do not have my morning cup of Joe, I(…)

A Day In The Life with Elicia Graves
Our day gets started bright and early and I set the girls up with some paper, crayons and markers while I get them breakfast.  They show me their artwork with proud little faces and then they eat their breakfast while I step outside to water my succulents.

Lazy bones lounges in the living room while the girls are otherwise occupied.

We live about ten minutes from the beach and as it is a beautiful day, we(…)

I shoot primarily with my Canon 5d mark III body and use my 5d mark II as a back-up.  Yep, I’ve kept the original straps which I twist around my hand when I’m shooting (I mention this because I don’t think I know any other photographers who still have(…)

My Photography Journey by Alana Rasbach

I feel as though I need to have a polished journey in order to write this–one that has resulted in me feeling satisfied with my work as a photographer. But I don’t. I think I am just at the beginning of my journey as an artist.
(This is me with my camera, 11 years old)
I received my first camera when I was 9 or 10 years old. It was a film Kodak instamatic. My older sister(…)

A Day In The Life with Jenna Stoller

The Stoller kids are awake first. We are actually shy one as he is at a friends house. Saylor is always hungry in the morning and Ridge never is, so she is the breakfast assistant. It’s a breakfast of champions: wheat toast and homemade jam.

Ridge cuddles up with dad in bed. He is a very cuddly boy and usually is content lying beside one of us with a toy. You can see his helicopter(…)

A Day In The Life with Katie Woodard
So this is a typical day in my life… just kidding! However it was a recent, real and wonderful summer day!  I decided to document the last day of a 4 day river trip (full sun and all!), which is my very favorite way to spend time with my family. River running is where my husband and I met, and now I love sharing that love with my children. Our day began bright and(…)
