So I have this fear… | Family Photographer Placerville

So I have this fear… Next year I am starting a 52 project. One picture a week for an entire year. Doesn’t sound that hard right? I joined a group of very talented people and I have to say I am already intimidated. We all belong to this group called the NAPCP. If you only knew the talent in this group you would be intimidated too. Never feeling worthy to be in this group yet feeling honored that I am, in my heart I know there is nothing to fear. There is nothing to gain from this fear. There is nothing to lose from this fear. It’s just there. What I do know is that it’s not a competition. It’s not about doing this project and gaining experience. It’s not about being inspired by other’s work (although that will surely happen anyway!) and it’s not even about whether I finish or not. It’s not about whether my images are quality or edited properly. It’s not about me. What it is about is my family. My kids. My pets. My life. My life at this moment. My life next week and my life next month. It’s ok if I don’t complete it. It’s ok if I can’t finish one week or one month. It’s ok. As long as I have tried and succeeded in the first week I have succeeded for me. The fears shall be washed away with warm hugs and kisses, with love and affection. As long as I have that, I have everything. I don’t need anything else. If I were to die tomorrow or next month I know that I have documented something for sharing. No one will care about all of the above. The only hurdle I will have now is reminding myself of this daily. I don’t think I will have a problem with that.

Much love,

Heather

Sunny Family of Four | El Dorado Hills Family Photographer

You know them. Those really pretty days where the weather is sunny and nice and the temperature is just perfect? We always long for those days right? I know I do! I just love this time of year. Autumn is my favorite season. A little rain doesn’t hurt anyone. In fact, in my part of the world we are in a serious drought so we need it badly here. But those sunny days….man oh man. I love them. It’s where we can make magic like this one. This family of four, like most, was a little stiff to start out but in the end they were as relaxed as can be. I loved it. Every minute of it. As always.

Favorite Photographs | Placerville Family Photographer

“ Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham

Haha! This is something that truly hits home for me. I have this problem, see? I take all these great photos of my kids in hopes of printing them in large format and then when I finally get around to wanting to spend all the money- I think- those are old photos. So…I take some more. By then I have spent the money and have to save up again. Therefore I have absolutely no photos of my kids on my walls. It’s a vicious cycle. How about you? Do you have photos of your children on your walls? Celebrate life and love by putting photos on your walls. Framed? Canvas? Basic print? It doesn’t matter as long as it’s there. There is a bonus in it for you if you have included yourself in those photos.

As you can see, I don’t follow my own advice. I hope you do though. Get on it! (And, if you would like me to do it for you—please don’t hesitate to let me know…)

Much love,

Heather
