52 Fridays: "in your fridge"

"In your fridge" is open to interpretation!  These were on TOP of my fridge.  
I thought they'd be prettier than the items growing INSIDE the fridge.  :-)

|  Next week's theme:  New/Old  |

Thank you to my husband and daughter for this birthday gift, 
these gorgeous chocolates were a great 'subject' and also
a delicious way to celebrate being 'thirty-one-derful'.

new grandparent love

The proud parents of this beautiful baby boy you've seen before,
gifted their parents with DDP mini-sessions for Christmas
so that the fleeting moments of their lives with their newborn son
could be enjoyed for generations to come.

Although only a single moment in time, 
within the images, 
there is a lifetime of love, hope and joy.

who doesn't love a little spit up anyway?

52 Fridays: Self-Portrait

Happy Friday!  The first theme of the 52 Fridays project is 'self-portrait'.  Here's my take.  A glass-walled self-portrait.

Next week's theme is 'winter', but with all this rain and warmer temperatures it will be a struggle to come up with something...  Stay tuned!

*Please Excuse the Silence*

Forgive me, friends, for I have sinned.
It has been 28 days since my last blog post.

2010 was such a great year, but with the highest volume in DDP's history, it was a very busy year.  There was almost NO time for marketing, promotions, seminars, trainings, and most importantly; practice.  I can't think of a single time I picked up my camera, just for fun and inspiration, just to play around with one of my greatest loves.  This is going to have to change, because one sure way to kill a fun hobby is to create a business.  I'm going to try harder to juggle 'business' photography with my 'hobby' photography.  I think it's important to keep the inspiration alive and never forget why I started this in the first place...  It's one of my greatest passions.  It always has been.

52 Fridays
Last year I made a pathetic attempt at Project 365.  I should be proud, however, to be the first to invent 'Project 8'... because that's about how far I got.  Ack!  This year, I am committing myself to '52 Fridays'.  Though there may not be time and opportunity every single day, I will MAKE the time to have fun experimenting at least every single week.  And I will share them with you every Friday.

Mystery Macro Mondays
Over the course of 2010, the DDP Facebook page enticed hundreds of people to... "like this".  We've now surpassed 800 fans, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE corresponding with friends, fans, clients, family through this outlet.  It's so easy!  If you're not already a fan, please consider.  Starting today, I'm going to put a little more fun into the DDP FB page and i'm encouraging you all to participate!  Just for fun, i'm going to be posting a new macro image every Monday and it's your job to figure out WHAT IT IS.  It's just a good old guessing game, so stay tuned, and get ready to GUESS!

The next 3 months are generally slow for photographers, and i'm planning on taking advantage by soaking up as much family time as I can, giving my home office a big face-lift, and catching up on everything else that got pushed aside through the busy year of 2010.  But you'll still see me around.. pushing out those Mystery Macro Mondays & 52 Fridays!

Thank you for following my work and my journey, and thank you dearly for your support.  Here's to another great year ahead!
