Crave Photography

Many of you know that I absolutely love photography... I love capturing moments in time and am trying so very hard to learn more and more each day. What a road it has been!

As of next Thursday, I will be staying at home with my sweet boy and no longer teaching my wonderful kiddos at Walker Elementary. The decision to stay home was not an easy one- we all want to be able to teach our own children and spend as much time with them in their young years as possible, because time truly does zip by in an instant. So, hubs and I have planned and worked hard this year, and with much prayer and guidance, have been blessed with the opportunity for me to do just that.

After making the decision, I began taking photos for friends, and co-workers and have fallen in love with the process. Within the last two months, my schedule has exploded. Every spare moment between school, family, church, and Thirty-One, I spend taking photos or editing! It's a blessing indeed! However, I realllllly want to learn so much more! I see so many fabulous things/ideas and get so excited about learning how to do more.

In the realm of education there are so many avenues, but I definitely learn best by doing!! Mentoring is super popular right now. Hopefully, after the busy end of the school year, I can allocate some time/funds to do just that! In the meantime, I'll dream about winning Crave Photography's Giveaway! They are offering a FREE, 2 day, all expenses paid, workshop and a FREE 50mm, 1.4 lens! Seriously doesn't get much cooler than that.

The link for the giveaway is right here! You should probably check it out, because it's basically excellence.

Anyhoodle, have a fabulous day friends! Check out the giveaway, and be merry!

So you will no longer be the music teacher at walker? �� I understand you though, I love staying home (sometimes) kids grow up in a blink of an eye so every minute is truly precious. You do a great job in your pictures can't wait for our appt. I have been thinking of taking some photography classes myself just waiting to get a better camera and I think I am.

Chely, that's right :( I am going to seriously miss my Walker kiddos. Many sleepless nights this last year praying about what to do. I am so glad that social networking will still let me see some of my favorite kiddos grow up though!
