A little over a month ago, I decided that Offshoots Photography should join the world of Instagram. I have a personal account already for friends and family pics, but I wanted a place to share portraits as I one day build up the business side of Offshoots.

In the meantime, I am using it to share creative works on the go and as a chance to use some of the awesome mobile photo-editing apps out there. Moreover, like WordPress, it is a great way to connect with other photographers and artists in order to learn from and enjoy their work, as well as to connect with potential clients in my area. I am also using it as a medium to share long forgotten images I may fine tune or completely revamp into photo art.

I am having a lot of fun with it because I can sit anywhere with my phone and create versus being tied to my laptop. Also, pulling up old images brings back lots of good memories.

Follow me on Instagram.

Light painting, or light drawing, is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure.

My daughters and I had fun experimenting with light painting recently. They used a small flash light to create these designs. We happen to catch my pup in the first one. 🙂

I took this image a year or two ago of my daughter and have been holding on to it to post for the “perfect challenge.”  Today, I thought, Who cares!  What am I waiting for?  Life is too short and we are never guaranteed tomorrow.

Santa always comes to our house even though the kids know how things work. 😉  He wraps his presents in green and red tissue paper just like he did when I was a child.

This is my husband’s teenage cousin rock wall climbing (or falling) when he and his brother were in town visiting us this summer. They had a blast with my girls, all of them, climbing as high as they could.
