A Senior Before and After

Some of you may remember several years ago I started a portrait photography business that I ran for a couple years through 2018. Now, I just do photoshoots for family and friends for fun, but my love of editing portraits is still strong so I’ve decided to go into the business of photo editing for other photographers. Here is my first blog post on my business website.

Offshoots Photography is taking a different turn for the new year. While I haven’t offered portrait photography services for a year or two now, my love of editing has never wavered. Therefore, I am now in the business of photo editing, editing images for other photographers. I will be posting before and after images on […]

A Senior Before and After

Setting the Stage

Merry Christmas!

Here are two backdrops for a family photoshoot I am doing this weekend. I think I will have them standing in the first one and on a blanket in the second, pulling in for a tighter shot.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!

December and January Instagrams

Here are the last part of December and all of January’s Instagram posts.  It is where I post my portrait business images.  Stuff that you won’t necessarily see here except for when I do these little updates.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram if that is your thing, too.

Bookworm

My daughter found this quaint little shop with a variety of artisans and vendors selling their wares within. Tucked back deep inside was a tiny book nook.

I had my Sony with me, but my flash wasn’t fired to full power when I hit the shutter. I was in too much of a hurry, trying to get a shot in between the other customers bearing down on us. We waited around a little bit, hoping for it to clear out some, but it never did.

So, I just took what I had and made it kind of artsy. I present to you:

Catch UP

Where have the weeks gone?  The months?  My goodness!  It has been two (months) since I have been here.  I have been spending many hours volunteering at the Young People’s Theater group my daughter belongs to as they prepare to present the “Nutcracker” next weekend.

I have also been very busy working on my new portrait photography business. Working with families and editing portraits is something I am enjoying more than I ever could have imagined.

I am hoping it will grow more come spring when the weather warms up since most people don’t think about doing outdoor portraits in the cold winter months. I have had a handful of inquires from strangers, but up to this point all of my clients have been family or friends. Again, I am hoping this changes come spring. I know it will if it is meant to be. God willing, all things happen the way they are supposed to, so I am not worried.

One thing I have been doing is keeping up on my Instagram account.  I post mostly images from my portraits sessions there.  So, I’ll end by leaving you with my last two months of Instagram images.
