I had a reader send me this email and I had to share it with you in hopes that it would inspire more to get out their cameras and share the gift of photography! I want to hear your stories too! Dear Noemi,
You don't know me, but I know you!Â Ha, the gift of the blog. I have been reading your blog for over a year and have loved the photos, inspiration and energy!Â I just wanted to share with you a bit of something I did, inspired by your early January blog about photography being a gift.
A friend of a friend asked me to take some photos of her daughter's 10 day old baby.Â We ended up stopping by unannounced and I took over 100 photos very quickly.Â This is a young family, four kids in less than four years! I am just an amateur (as you can see!) with a decent camera and some passion for capturing faces.Â I tried to instill some love for reading by taking a photo of each kiddo holding a favorite book.
Thanks for the inspiration.Â I hope that at least half of everyone who reads your blog does this at least once.Â If I get some outdoor photos of this family in the Spring, I will send some to you so you can see my real talent, LOL.
God Bless you and your beautiful family! Nancy
p.s.Â I downloaded these photos to Shutterfly.com, printed about 80 and put them in an album I bought on clearance at Target.Â Cost: $30.Â Mom's reaction:Â Priceless.
THANK YOU NANCY! I love real stories...especially when I know it will inspire others!
