First Frost {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, IL}

I've kinda been waiting for a frost, and this morning, I got my wish! As a bonus, I could see by breath!!!!  So weird.  I'm absolutely loving everything about the first season change I get to experience in a long, long time!  Yes, it's cold, and I hate to be cold, but I'm just going to bundle up.  I'll be the one you see that looks like the Michelin Man, or that kid from A Christmas Story!  As soon as I went out, a couple flocks of geese flew over......another bonus. Talk to me in the depths of winter, and I probably won't be so keen on cold weather anymore.  Such is life.

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
