I have found a group of women in the Springfield area who enjoy photography as much as I do and who encourage and support each others own personal journey. In addition, we all realize the value of capturing not just those “special moments” but the every day moments. Together we are embarking on a 12 month photography project.
Each month we will try and take personal images and blog on them. The theme will be “What ___ looks like.” Each month we will each choose to fill in the blank with our word of choice. Some of us may choose to use the same word all year and some may choose to change it up each month. We will each link to the next photographer until our circle of is complete.
We hope this project inspires you to take more pictures of your own families! Make sure to read through to the end and then visit the link to Tara Long Photography!
This month: What a weekend away looks like
The fall has been VERY busy for me photography-related. However, when a dear friend of our family (and the little girl I used to babysit!) was getting married in Chicago it was cause for a HUGE celebration and a weekend away. Her wedding and reception took place at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier, so my husband daughter and I decided to make a fun weekend out of it. We had never taken Josie downtown Chicago and we knew it would be a blast. Between having tons of fun in the hotel room, meeting the pirate at navy pier (who she kept calling “Jake”,) playing at the Children’s museum, having a CRAZY fun time at the reception and the brunch the next day…this was one of those weekends that I know Josie will remember for years to come.
