Information Overload

The system- is down. The system- is down.

That's what my brain felt like last night. My husband was working the evening shift so I spent a few hours after my daughter went to sleep reading and researching on the internet. By the time I went to bed I was so jam-packed with information that it took a long time to shut down mentally.

I love reading other photographer's blogs and hearing about how they started out in the business and how they got to where they are today. Along with all the helpful information/advice that they so openly share with their readers. My 2 most favourite photographers that I LOVE, and religiously follow their blogs, are Jasmine Star and Jaime Delaine.

Both of them are so inspiring to me, for so many reasons, but mostly because they started out just like me. They both had a passion for photography and wanted to start their own businesses. From what I've read on their blogs about how they started out, they did lots of practice shoots and pretty much taught themselves using the internet (reading other photographers blogs, watching tutorial videos, participating in photography forums, etc.), interacting with other photographers, and practicing!

So I've been catching up on their blogs, going through every FAQ post they've written and soaking in as much information as I can! I'm constantly learning new things and get excited for future photo shoots so I can put these new techiniques into practice.

Another thing I've read from other photographers is that blogging is a key factor to growing your business and attracting new clients. So, I'm going attempt to make this blog a more daily thing, as much as my 10 month old will allow! =)  I'll try to think of different ideas to spruce up my blog a bit but that'll take some thinking time.

On the subject of inspiration, I'm highly inspired by editorial shoots. I love looking through magazines for posing ideas and am drawn to the photos with a highly editorial/high fashion feel to them. I borrowed a bunch of magazines from the library today to get my creative juices flowing! I grabbed a couple Vogue's, Elle and Flare, and a few bridal magazines.

I'll end this post with some pictures of my cutie-patutie daughter. Because, really, what's a photography blog post without pictures, right?


  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Are those baby leg warmers???? LOVE! And I'm glad you like high fashion editorial shoots - don't think my stuff is high fashion but I can't WAIT to see what you come up!

  2. Her eyes are so blue, she is so grown up looking with those leg warmers. :)

    I think my favorite is where she's looking into the stove. So classic! And those leg warmers are to most adorable things I've ever seen!
