It’s not often that I write much when I blog, the honest truth of it is because I’m usually so quickly onto the next thing, that I overlook it until it feels too much like work to go back and blog past sessions. This time somehow I’m getting to it right away! On this day, I went out with a couple, Kyle and Katrina, for their engagement photos of whom are also dear friends of mine and my family. We started in Forest Park, then walked around Downtown Portland, OR.

This year I decided to challenge myself to take/post at least one image every week. I joined a forum and in this forum this challenge was called "Create 52." All of these images are bookmarks throughout this year of things I tried and learned with photography. I learned about the power of single-source lighting and fell in love with garage light. I tried to take a step back and take some wider shots instead of my normal go-to, close-in, default. I attempted freelensing and fell in looooove with it! I incorporated flowers into a shoot and discovered I actually really loved that also. From dresses, dancers, water, snow, light patterns, movement... I experimented with it all during this project. I haven't decided if I'll be doing another one or not. My rules were that I needed to post one image a week and post is as the "create 52" for that week, and if I had to, I could choose older images to pull up and post. Those were my only rules. I did pretty well up until about week 37 where things sorta fell apart and my create 52 posts fell off the map. So I went back through and made the rest of the choices this week all in one fell swoop.
All along, my goal was to compile these images into a book, so I will be completing that project soon and will be making it available for purchase. :-) Thanks for following along! Should I do another in 2017?

I am in my happy place when I get to meet up and shoot with local photographers. Really any photographers, not just local ones. This day in November I coordinated a meet up at the Columbia River Gorge at Horsetail Falls. Here are some of my images from that meet up. Thank you so much to Sierra, Kado, and Katrina for being our willing models for this shoot!
