the joy of love: intro & Day 1

If you’ve ever heard of Willette Photography, you know that she’s G.O.O.D! And, if you’ve ever read my blog, you know that I’m no professional. I definitely enjoy taking pictures, and {let’s be honest} I have the cutest subjects on the planet…but I don’t have a clue about aperture, ISO and all of the other fancy things that go with “knowing” how to take pictures!

So, when Willette offered “the Joy of love” for FREE, I couldn’t wait to get her little pointers in my inbox for the month of February. So, here goes…

I’m going to try to learn a few things about photography…and take some fun pictures along the way.

Here are the “requirements” of the class…

suggested class materials:

  • someone(s) you love
  • a camera
  • a desire to stretch your photographic skills

what you can expect from this willette JOY class:

  • a daily email during the month of february
  • the email will contain a photo idea and occasional tips
  • a public flickr gallery to share photos
  • an album template download at the end for all of your photos you take during the class
  • a journey to help you document your loved one(s) – whether it is a spouse, partner, child, pet, parent or friend

And, I decided that I wanted to take the opportunity to capture my husband! Here are my reasons why…
1. He’s phenomenal!
2. I don’t have HALF as many pictures of him as I do of the boys.
3. He cooperates a little better than a 3 1/2 year old and a 6 month old.
4. Since we had kids, Valentine's Day became even more fun to me. It gave me a reason to celebrate US! So, I thought it would be fun to focus on him for the month of February…because I love him!

So, don’t expect to see JAW DROPPING pics…but, know that I’m trying…and that I’m having fun doing it! joy-of-love-logo-500-px

I've been looking for a weekend workshop or online course just like this. Thanks for the lead!

I'm doing this as well!

I'm doing this journey too and I don't think it's about jaw dropping photos, it's about capturing these all too quickly fleeting memories.

Have a joyful month!
