Can little girls jump? they sure can!! February 18, 2010

Today I had the privilege of photographing the elementary school Dance Team. What fun, well, some frustration too, (my own fault), but the girls were great. They loved the camera and we had more fun and took more individual pics than we did the group pic! I think they turned out better too, and they weren't planned, just fun. This is my friend Abby and she wanted me to take her picture jumping, I love her hair, if you flip this upside down, it would look like shes hanging upside down!

I am far more comfortable shooting birds, flowers, landscapes even still lifes, people are different, kids are really different. I want to be the best photographer I can be. That means trying new things, doing things that are outside the comfort zone, stretching myself. I've done it before in other areas of my life, I know the benefits, growth and change are worth the risk! Like Abby, I'm gonna jump as high as I can, keep jumping each time getting a little stronger, smarter, and my comfort zone gets bigger and bigger.

I hope that if there is something you want to do, to try that you'll plan some, prepare some and then GO FOR IT!!
