12 Days Of a Farm Christmas Part 2 | Personal

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Here’s a project I did especially for you, my faithful blog readers! I wanted to thank you all for support over the past year. I wanted to capture the story of Christmas using what resources I had. All the pictures you see here were shot around the farm with the exception of the shepherd one. (Because we don’t have sheep and had to go to the neighbors to use theirs. πŸ˜€ ) It was a lot of fun and hard work putting these 5 pictures together.

If you didn’t read the previous post I did a few days ago, I’ve been posting a picture a day for the 12 days of Christmas on my facebook page. I’m posting them up on here for all my non-facebookers to see! πŸ™‚ (You may or may not want to check it out. Especially over the next few days. I’ll be posting some behind the scenes photos and probably have something up on how I did the Wise Men Picture.)

I hope you guys enjoy these! Made with lots of love for you! πŸ™‚

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, β€œDo not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:8-12 NIV

Hey! How’s your Christmas going? Mine is crazy as usual. I just thought I’d check in with you all to let you know about a project I’ve been working on. This year, I really wanted to up my game with my pictures. Every Christmas gets so busy that I seem to miss the all the action and fun the season and really only pull my camera out on Christmas day. This year, I’ve decided to change that and put up a picture for the 12 days of Christmas. I have been putting one up every morning on my Facebook page.

I have the firstΒ  7 up in this blog post. The last 5 days I will post on here on Christmas day or the day after, but if you would like to see them the minute they’re posted, take a look at the FB page. I’m really excited about the next 3 days pictures!

Have a very merry Christmas!!

I finally have these up!!!! After a long time in planning, I finally go around to doing these! πŸ™‚ This was my first real try out with my new Cannon 7D camera, which, by the way, I LOVE. πŸ™‚ I still have a lot of learning to do on it. Every thing that came natural now takes me a while to get used to.

Keep checking the blog in the next weeks. I’ll have more frequent posts and maybe a few surprises. πŸ™‚

Q Family Christmas Pictures | Beaver PA Photographer

A few weeks ago, I was able to take the Q. family’s Christmas pictures. Since this is the third year that I’ve taken them, it’s fun to look back and see how everyone has changed over the years. My own skill has changed quite a lot too. A few years ago, I would have NEVER taken indoor pictures at night. πŸ™‚ For some of these I was able to use my external flash, which was long over due for use. Here’s a sample. Enjoy πŸ™‚
