My husband surprised me with a delivery of flowers to my door last week to wish me a Merry Christmas. I was so excited not only for the love that it represents, but also for the photographic opportunity that it gave me. As I am now prone to saying, Bonus!!

I was the second shooter in October for a wedding along side Mercy with Custom Design and Art. I took a ton of pictures, but I just wanted to share a few of my favorites that I shot that day. As usual, I hung out with the guys and took some pics of them finishing getting ready and hanging out before the wedding. Then I helped Mercy with the gals. The ceremony was next of course and then we moved on to the reception. I really love capturing the story behind a couple during their wedding day.

I know that there is no promise of this snow staying, but it came anyway and I am happy! Can you see my smiling face? Oh I wish you could, I am so happy about it! I am looking forward to the continued use of my 60mm macro lens. It sure does make shooting snow a whole new experience! My biggest fascination is that it is fluffy and yet it has all kinds of sharp edges to see.

I am finding that the longer we go without snow here, the more extreme I am editing my pictures. Work with me please…I just can’t stop! With no snow to photograph, I have been also forced to find creative ways to photograph dead things. Interesting enough, it is stretching me as a photographer and that isn’t bad either. I am getting to the end of my 365 project for this year. It has been the first time I have ever done it and I do believe that I may never quit. It has pushed me to literally take my camera out each and every day and do my best to get a really good shot. There have been a few days that they have been so, so, but for the most part, I am pretty happy with it. Without that project to push me on, I am pretty sure all these drab days of December in Minnesota, may have not produced any photographs at all. Scary!
