Are there many moms here who like me are addicted to photos of their children? I had never really picked up a camera til my son was born, then I constantly had a camera in his face I realized I enjoyed photography so much that I started a business out of it and I'm lovin' that too! So, anyone else wanna talk shop or just share cute photos?

We bought new jammies yesterday so I took the opportunity to get some snapshots. Yep my family rooms is a mess

I did a search through the finding your tribe forum to see if there was a photography moms group already and there didn't seem to be. If there is feel free to point me in the right direction.

I loved it before but am loving it more and more.

I am working at making a business of it- right now I am building up my portfolio.

I love taking photos- and will probably start a website soon to solicite business. I want to get a better camera- but I figure right now I can develop my skills and go from there..

BTW- the links to your photos didn't work for me.

Just looked at your website- WOW great stuff!!! I am guessing you use your camera a bit ;-)

how did you get started/learn did you take classes or just play?

Hey thanks! Aww that's sweet : No classes, self taught with lots of practice. Online forums are really big help, too.

I'm going to close this thread but I'll leave it up so members can follow you all over to the thread in Fine Arts!

I'm a morning person.  We actually do exist.
