Everyday Farmgirl Photography - Aggieland

I have ventured into an area of photography that I said I would never attempt. I have started capturing people. It has started out with just family and friends for now. I am slowly learning the ropes of portrait photography and I am growing in my skill. I never thought I would say that!

My love of photography started when my parents bought me my first DSLR camera which was a 35mm. I was in my early teenage years and digital DSLR cameras didn't exist then. Yes, I am aging myself! I loved that 35mm Canon Rebel. I carried it with me on vacations and on the farm. I captured a lot of cows and mountains in my beginning years of my photography. That camera is what started my passion for photography and I still have it in my camera arsenal. My love for being behind the lens continued as I learned settings and how to control light as I captured landscapes and livestock. As time went on, I graduated to a digital DSLR. But my love for photography was the art of capturing beautiful scenes, not people.

Over the last couple of years, I have been asked by a lot of my friends to photograph their family and I declined many of them. I think because I wasn't confident in my photography. I felt that portraits add the element of people liking or disliking images. Before, that was not a concern for me because I only shot art photography. With art photography, you only hang it in your home if you like it.

This past weekend I had the privilege of photographing a special girl in my favorite place, Aggieland. This soon to be Aggie grad was my 4th grade student and I am extremely proud of her accomplishments. This session was so much fun! We shot confetti canons, shook up champagne bottles and enjoyed beautiful spots on campus. As a photography and Aggie, this was right up my alley. As you can see, she is beautiful and my cameral loved her. As a bonus, I got to spend time with friends while exercising my creativity. Her Mom and I enjoyed spending time together and getting to have a road trip weekend. Not to mention we got a good nights' sleep away from our snoring husbands. I enjoyed getting to catch up with Heidi and seeing the wonderful young lady she has become.

As for now, I plan on taking on more portrait photography. I am looking forward to seeing where my portrait photography skills take me. I hope to grow as a photographer and to provide beautiful images for my family and friends in the years to come. Here is to trying new things and getting out of my comfort zone!

-Thanks and Gig'em,
