Establishing your photography business takes time, dedication and hard work. Re- establishing your business after a move, can prove to be even more challenging. A month ago, I found myself faced with a 500 mile move from PA to home, NC. My photography business in Saint Thomas, PA was beginning to grow and flourish and through my experience I found some things that I did early on that helped to make the transition smoother and helped me gain clients in my new area shortly after settling in. I’d love to share those with my readers and provide help for those photographers who may be faced with a relocation
1. I enrolled in a photography class~ Here I wasn't only learning about photography, but was also meeting new photographers and forever friends while doing so.
2. I joined a photography group, and here I learned from other photographers new ideas that I we today. The group had outings that allow me learn the area and again new friends.
3. I used social media, goggle and yard sale sites at no cost to help spreed my business to new clients.
4. I am starting my Photography business once again and will used the same sources and pray.
I'm both happy and sad to announce to my wonderful clients that I am packing up my gear and moving back home to my family in North Carolina.I want to say farewell to all of my clients; all who have made my photography and adventure; sharing their cherished moments and memories with me, and giving me the honor to capture it forever. I will continue my work down south, ( Lake Lure and Asheville, North Carolina) and will not forget or fail to appreciate my time here with you. With much love and appreciation.

My fur babies Emma our black lab and Buster our cat. As some of you know I am from NC and that is where I got Emma as a puppy and truly she has and is such a blessing. After moving to PA for my husband's job I knew no one and it was a lonely time for me. Emma and I enjoyed our adventures of learning PA together. (alone with my camera) Then came Buster our Pennsylvania cat and oh how they love each other. The both of them teach me so much about loving one another. These two do not discriminate or hate. Their love and loyalty is unconditional!
Your kindness makes a difference. .Even if it is a very tiny act of goodness and you think no one notices, God notices. Always remember that one little act of kindness can tilt the balance of an entire situation. One little act of kindness can ripple out in countless ways that you many never know about.

Photography Goals: Photography is my form of self expression. I want to be able to use it as a tool to help me learn more about myself and inspire others. Photography also allows me to tell stories of places I've been and things I've done. Photography grants me the rare gift of being able to capture a moment in time. It allows me to capture my own personal world perspective that others will be able to look at decades down the line and say "wow, that's how it looked back then".

Places to visits and a things you must see while there:
Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, which has 19th-century buildings, a Civil War Museum and John Brown’s Fort, a key site in an 1859 abolitionist raid. The Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet, known as The Point, offers views of Maryland and Virginia.
The easiest way to explain is with an example. If it’s a sunny day, your aperture is set to F/16 and ISO set to 200, to correctly expose your image the shutter speed needs to be set to 1/200 (the inverse of the ISO number). ISO speed is your camera’s sensitivity to light. A bigger ISO speed means a larger sensitivity. If your camera is more sensitive to light, it takes less light to take a picture bright. Most cameras start out at an ISO speed of 100, and some models go as high as ISO 1600. That’s 16 times more sensitive than the default, meaning you’d need to expose the camera to 16 times less light to get the same picture.
Another example. Let’s say it’s a sunny day, and your camera is set to ISO 400. According to the sunny 16 rule, if you use an aperture of F/16 and a shutter speed of 1/400 s, you will have an evenly balanced image that is neither too bright nor too dark. The rule works great when it's sunny.

Sharing some old~time elegance, this is one variety of the dwarf lilac. Wanted to tell you some things to think about when photographing flowers.
Sharp focus is important in all forms of photography but in flower Macro photography it is crucial and even a tiny adjustment can have massive implications for your shot as the depth of field is so small. Identify the point of interest that you want to be in focus and then work hard to ensure that it’s as sharp as possible. This can be a real challenge, especially outdoors on breezy days where you’ll probably end up taking a lot of images and relying on luck to some degree! You can improve your ‘luck’ a little by photographing in a more controlled environment like shielding them from wind or just choosing to do your photography on a still day. Happy spring shooting.
