Well, it seems like I am on a roll right now. Been over a week since I’ve been on my new medication and I am starting to have enough energy to go outside again. The only issue is the weather. I just wish it was a few degrees warmer for my joints to be less stiff. And less rainy and windy for me to go outside and shoot photographs. As of right now, I am trying to give you more blog post and less one shot Instagram photographs. I still cannot give you both, I do not have the manpower or the right equipment. My phone is out of date. But I am hoping that I will get a new smartphone soon. I plan on switching from an iPhone to an Android because the technology on Android is surpassing iPhones right now. Well, that is what the experts say.

Right now I am writing this blog late at night in my bed with the cat at my feet sleeping. Getting ready to go to bed. I have a busy three days in front of me so we will see how I function. I’m hoping I won’t get behind on editing photos.

I know I showed an Instagram photo of this outfit already but this has to be one of the best photoshoots I have had in a while. The lighting was just amazing that day. It was a bit cool and windy, though but not too much. And I wasn’t exhausted running around looking for a place to photograph. There weren’t that many people out that day because of the wind. It did take me a while to photograph because I was trying to figure out my new camera lens. Which is beautiful!!! I am getting so much detail with my photographs with this lens. The Nifty-Fifty photo lens definitely a must-have staple for portrait photography.

As I progress over the year, I just am so amazed how far I have come in my knowledge and experience in photography. But I still do not know everything yet, I still and always will be learning. And my photos will change over the years from just trying new techniques.

Well, I am off to bed. I just wanted to show these photographs I took. Please Enjoy!!!

Love you all,

Valerie (Jersey Girl)

  1. I’m so happy for you that you’re getting the help that you need and it sounds like it’s working for you! Congrats!
    Yeah, the weather was pretty bad lately in the Northwest but it’s picking up and seeming like spring now, which is great.
    As for the outfit, it’s not my style but I think it looks great on you. By the way, is the overalls part attached to the shirt, or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

    1. It’s still winter here in the Northeast! Three Nor’Easter’s in two weeks! I can’t take it, anymore! The overalls and the shirt are separate. Your eyes are playing tricks.
