Checking In

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to check in with y'all!  Life has been crazy with a move from AR back to IL, and taking care of 3 little ones while my husband studies for the CPA exam!  I wanted to pop in and say hello and to apologize for not being here.  Hopefully I'll remember to check in more often.  

I have been keeping up with my photography, and actually have purchased a few things to help push me into taking things to the next level.  I've taken Jenn Bogle's Light and Lifestyle breakout from Clickin' Moms, and got in on Lisa Holloway's $40 Picking Poppies editing video steal.  Both have helped me tremendously, so I highly recommend them both!  

I'd love to share a few images.  Hopefully I won't close the browser and loose everything again like I did a few minutes ago ;)  That's what I get for rushing!  LOL!!

My 3 boys back in...October, maybe?

I'm thinking of applying to Clickin' Moms Pro, so I'm putting together a set of my "best" stuff.  I'm still not sure if it's worth it for me to do it, but it would give me a huge confidence boost ;)

YAY Stephanie is back!!!

YAY Stephanie is back!!!

 

I can tell you have been putting a lot of time in your photography as of late.  There are so many of these that I truly love, but I gotta tell you that the "bug lover" picture of Jackson is ... jaw dropping!  I *L*O*V*E* it!

 

I think you are beyond ready to be part of CM Pro!  Go for it!  Just don't stop posting here so we can continue to be inspired by you.  :D

 

Good to see you post, Steph!  TFS!

In the bubble photo, I used a lot of Lisa's editing techniques.  Seriously...If you even have a twinge of wanting to buy the video, DO IT! It's retiring at the end of the month and will never be available again.  Especially at that price.  Here's a before and after :)  

 

It's one of those were I was hoping I didn't go overboard on it, since I knew what the SOOC looked like LOL!  I'm still kinda worked up and in love with this one weeks later ;)

Steph, those pictures are

Steph, those pictures are wonderful. You just keep getting better and better. I told Danielle (who hasn't been on here in a long time) that sometimes I am tempted to remove her from my FB feed because her photos are so good they make me despair of my own. Same goes for you! These are SO great! It's really nice to see you here again too, the board is soooo quiet, right, GiGi?!
