Kelly was the first friend I made in Knoxville back in September. She knew I was working on my photography, and she recently asked me if I wanted a model for a photoshoot! DUH!!! No Brainer!!! Kelly and I got together this weekend, and boy did we have a great time! So many of her photos turned out beautifully! She was a perfect first model because she was patient with me, and she was up for anything. We had so much fun! I have posted a lot of pictures, but it was so difficult selecting photos to post because Kelly had over 150 photos that turned out great! Thanks Kelly for making this a blast!

I am going to come clean here and now...I have had a lot of hobbies over my relatively short lived life. I seem to be endlessly looking for something fun and exciting to do, but I wind up getting bored pretty quickly and move on to the next thing that will hopefully give me a newfound purpose and create a little escape from the monotony of life. I've tried too many things to count, each of them failing to ease my boredom or ceasing to challenge me. I can't really remember exactly how I decided to get into photography. Most of my decisions are made upon impulse without much thinking or rationality. I have always liked taking pictures, but the actual commitment to photography that required a new deep pocketed camera was made in less than a few days. But I knew I had to have a new camera, and I knew I wanted to take serious pictures. I wish I had more time to devote to my new love, but I try to find the time as much as I can, and I hope I am slowly growing into a better artist. I have a long way to go, but I am very much enjoying the challenge. Yes...that's it! I am finally challenged by something and cannot believe how much I have learned. In fact, I learned a few post production tricks today while I was staring into my computer. They're not perfect, but I am proud to say I have a few color selective tricks up my sleeve! It's fun so it's worth it! I feel like a kid again!!!

I never turn down a trip to the beach, so Michael and I jumped at the chance to go to the North Carolina coast for a long July 4th weekend. We traveled to Calabash, NC, a quaint shrimp boating town popular for it's down home feel and "Calabash Style" seafood, which means fresh fried! We stayed in a charming village called Brunswick Plantation. 3 picturesque golf courses surrounded an antebellum clubhouse and traditional Carolinian homes. I simply enjoyed sitting on the back porch having a drink and listening to the bull frogs! We had lots of fun relaxing on the beach, eating seafood, and playing golf. We didn't want to leave!
