SERENITY NOW! Is a phrase my husband and I use in a joking way when the boys get on our nerves. Yeah, it happens. More often than I'd like to admit. So when my friend, Iris invited me to join in a blog circle that was all about SERENITY, I totally jumped all over that like a kid in a toy store!
There are a few ways I find serenity in my life, and photography is one of them! I just love those moments when I quietly escape the loud and busy of my house with only a camera in my hand. I feel so much peace when I take a few moments with myself to just discover the beauty around me, no matter if it's alive and pretty or dead and still pretty in it's own way!
The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project. The women who post to this project aim to bring a sense of calm serenity to their images. Please continue the circle to Jessica Nelson of The Gaggle Photography to see where she found serenity this month!
It seems I'm taking more and more videos these days, and less and less pictures--at least when it comes to my family. And I'm actually okay with it! I love seeing my boys in action, because believe you me, they rarely ever sit still unless food or sleep are involved! ;)
Enjoy a little peek into the Hamson home. Kick your shoes off, put your feet up, and relax...you're hanging out with the Hamson's!
I just love the mountains, and getting out to enjoy them, no matter the weather! (Okay, well not so much when it's a blizzard and in the negative temperatures...) But when it's halfway warm in the winter, I love going snowshoeing if I'm not going skiing. A couple weeks ago, my friend Michelle and I, took a day to go snowshoeing. Michelle is also a photographer, so I love going with her because she doesn't care if I stop to take pictures along the way! You can see some of Michelle's amazing work here!
I thought it would be fun to make a video of our afternoon there. Enjoy some winter magic...without the cold!
Last month I made my first ever video--just random clips from my family's life. My family loved it so much, and gave me the drive to continue making them throughout this year. Right now it's taken over my picture taking...I've got the film bug! I just love hearing the sweet voices of my kids, seeing their little quirks and nuances that you can't quite capture in a still image. So plan on seeing more! Here's a glimpse into our February!
I'm a mom of 4 boys, in love with photography, especially landscapes, macro, and silhouettes.
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." -Elliott Erwitt
