14/365 {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, Illinois}

  It's officially official, we are all sick. Trevor was first, I was next, and last, but not least Tharin now has it.  We all seem to have a variation of the same sickness. I thought for sure that I squeaked by without getting it too bad. Last night, I knew that was no longer the case. I'm sure it will soon pass. The first photo is my selection for the 365 Project, and the rest are photos I took at the same time. He wouldn't go to sleep at first, he's always hated naps, but he NEEDS them. He starts to get really crazy hyper when he's over tired. He was pretending to be Ironman with my camera lens cap. Since he's just started to get sick, I'm sure the worst is yet to come. I always feel so helpless when he feels rotten.

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 architect...at 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.
