Photo Shoot with Amy of And How! Imaging

The lyrics, “I get by with a little help from my friends,” rings true for this recent photo shoot with my gal pal, Amy. She is an established photographer and owns her own photography business with her husband, And How! Imaging. You may be familiar with their work since I’ve blogged about photo shoots with these creative people. This time the camera was turned on Amy and I was the photographer. Amy is very knowledgeable and oozes talent in her own work.

I recently enrolled in the New York Institute of Photography and I’m currently taking an intensive course in portrait photography. So just like any school program, this one has photo assignments after each unit. I asked Amy if she would be my “willing model” and she agreed to my delight. I had a specific assignment to accomplish with these photos. Amy was such a natural (as I knew she would be) and below are a few photos from the photo shoot. Amy has been a big help with giving me great photography advice. If you’re getting into a hobby or field, it’s always nice to have someone you can bounce questions off of and to give you the dos and don’ts. I’ve truly gotten by so far with Amy’s guiding hand while I’m in school.

Trying out a little tintype editing. I hope some time down the road learn the real deal 🙂

Snowfall in March

snow day3

There’s something about snow that seems so magical. It covers the earth in this silent and glistening blanket. Although I am not a huge fan of cold weather, I do love a good snowfall. The kind you wake up to and it seems to make the earth quieter. It’s one thing I miss about living in the mountains.

Recently, my little corner of the earth received a hefty dose of beautiful snow and I told my husband we were going outside to play in it later. He may have been reluctant at first (he’s from California where the sun is always shining) but once we were in it with the pups, his hesitation melted away. We grabbed our camera and released the hounds (our two dogs) and had a merry time photographing this rare occurrence of this weather in March and where we live.

Below are the photos. As you can see, we wore our fancy plaid 🙂

Black are my steps on silver sod;   
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;   
And tree and house, and hill and lake,   
Are frosted like a wedding-cake. ~ Robert louis Stevenson
