Some photos I took a couple of weeks ago. I love how I was able to find some color amidst all the white & grey that's in Northern Ontario! It's been about -30 every single day here in the last few days so I've been having a hard time grabbing my camera or feeling creative in general. If you've noticed, I re-added all my blog posts & photos since I started my blog again. I felt sad that I made all of my beginner photos private.. it sort of made me feel like a phony. I was a beginner once (heck! I'm still a beginner!) and I want to showcase my photographic journey through this blog. I want to be able to look back & I want my readers to be able to look back as well at how far I've come. I'm really proud of my photography as well as my whole journey along the way! While there may be some layout changes etc in the future of this blog, my beginner photos aren't going anywhere!

Congratulations to Lindsay & Kyle on your pregnancy!! I can't wait to meet the little guy or gal! Thank you so much for allowing me to take these photos for you. Above are just a few of my favorites.

I've taken many photos of the lighthouse on Lake Superior, just steps away from where I live but none of my photos have turned out quite like this one. This was taken with my zoom lens and the image quality I managed to capture surprised me. I was so used to zooming in with Nikon Coolpix P500 and losing astounding image quality that when I snapped this beauty I fell in love. I can't wait to use my zoom lens more often. :)

I feel like this photo could have been so much better if I had a bit more room to maneuver. I was blocked by a snow bank in -40 temperatures so I couldn't get much closer. This was taken with my zoom lens, but I feel the image could be much more crisp if I could have angled myself differently so there wasn't such harsh sunlight shining on this little guy. Oh, the things I learn each time I go out and take a picture. It's so much fun.. seriously my favorite thing in the world.
I really love how the sun reflects on this cold withering plant. It gives it a very "early morning" look even though it was taken at about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. On a side note, I'm very ready for Spring to start. I've had enough of this cold weather! I remember talking about this last year all the time on my blog. I definitely need some inspiration during Winter when it comes to my Photography. The big difference between last year & this year is I have a couple of photo shoots lined up so that's what's keeping me creative this winter season. Regardless, Spring & Summer are so much more fun!

This photo came out blurry which at the time, was unintentional. However, upon uploading, I fell in love with the image. I feel the out of focus aspects of the photo gives it a more creative feel.

I really couldn't help but post this even though I didn't take it. John took this photo and I'm so in love with it. This is my cat Ned doing what he does best...laying around. My favorite part of this photo (besides my little man, of course!) is the bokeh in the background one of my favorite parts about my new lens. I thought I'd incorporate a little bit of my personal life in this post :) Great job on the photo too by the way John!

I was ecstatic when I saw these eagles flying around today considering I've only ever seen them high, high up in the sky circling the air. So amazing.
On a side note, Happy New Year everyone :)!
I definitely have many photography goals for 2014 and I couldn't be more excited. As always, thanks for following along.
