I’ll be editing, editing, editing and meeting with a client later today.  I hope you’re having a great and productive Tuesday!

 

 

 

Printed Art vs. Digital Images

Delivery time 😄👏🏽👏🏽 This is the part I love…delivering product that I’m proud of to my wonderful clients!! Yaaaas 😄📷❤️🎉.

I’ve recently realized how important it is to get actual prints and photo books instead of images on cd!! As my kids get older many of my memories are gone in old computers or some other digital format that I have no idea where they are. This breaks my heart. I’ve been trying to print as many images as possible because there is NOTHING like printed memories!!

Let’s do a photoshoot and get some great products for you to treasure forever…trust me, it’s worth EVERY PENNY!

Contact kathy@kcphotocreations.com so we can get some great memories to keep forever!

Bye bye digital images hello printed art!

Shake Those Nerves! Farmer’s Daughter Hotel

When I first started pursuing my dream of being a photographer, I used to get soooo nervous…even NOW when I have a big event, I STILL get nervous, but I refuse to let that stop me…ever!

One thing I do when I have a big event that has my stomach in knots, I schedule “me” time the following week so instead of focusing on my nerves I focus on the treat to myself AFTER my big event and it really helps lol.

I love to treat myself to an overnight stay at a nice hotel where I can relax and also work with my laptop and enjoy a little time away.

When you have a big event or just something that is nerve wracking, what do you do?? I’d love to hear about it!

Keanyn – Class of 2015!

I have been a little behind on blogging and I thought what better time than today to start catching up because today is the day my nephew graduated from Santa Fe High School.

A few months ago I was so glad to be able to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico to do Keanyn’s senior session!

Congratulations Keanyn!  I’m so proud of you and I am excited for this next stage of your life!  I pray God’s blessings in all that you do!!

The Train That Led Me to the Museum of Photographic Arts

I recently decided to take on a weekly photographic challenge of photographing a specific theme each week. This week the theme was trains, and even though I recently joined a wonderful group of photographers at a real train station, I wanted to go out and try to get creative. I decided I would go to the Train Museum in Balboa Park, but on my way to the Train Museum, I passed the Museum of Photographic Arts.  Now you know I LOVE photography, so after looking at the cost of the Train Museum I opted to use my money to go and enjoy the amazing exhibit they had at the Museum of Photographic Arts called 7 billion Others and the Model and Muse of Hendrik Kerstens…I just could not resist and I have NO regrets!!

Here are a few images I gathered from my wonderful trip to the Museum 🙂

At the entrance of the Museum, they had a multimedia exhibition called 7 billion Others in which various individuals from all over the world expressed different experiences and emotions that had me glued to the 30 minute presentation…it was very interesting to see the different experiences that we all have in common yet from different cultures.

Once you pass the multimedia exhibition at the entrance, they had different booths with various videos of people sharing personal thoughts and life experiences.

There was also a gallery with the works of Hendrik Kerstens.  I had never heard of him, but it was a collection of his daughter, his muse, and they were stunning images that looked like different time periods of her.

I’m looking forward to an adventurous 2015 as I try different things and find new knowledge as I embark on my creative journey.  I’m so thankful that I can do this as I do not take one minute for granted…life is just too short and while I have the blessing of good health and the opportunity, I plan to appreciate EVERY moment that I’m blessed to have.

Blessings!
