So it's been a while since my first post and believe me not for lack of writing material. The end of January, the month of February, and now, the first week of March have all been crazy at the studio due to Valentine's Day "mini" sessions and photographing some large events, as well as at the house with school vacation, play dates and birthday parties. But the starring role in the chaos called "A Day in the Life of Brogen" was, you guessed it, the snow and the snow days it brings! Since time and weather limited photography subjects during this time, I created images from what I had available...these very distractions.

Then as the month of February dawned, I decided to make an effort to find the beauty in our 6 - 8 feet snow banks and some originality in Valentine's Day. So I tried to change my point of view by using the eye of the lens, as well as some post processing textures and overlays to add some interest to the same subjects.

Mid-February, I stumbled across a "Heart to Heart" theme on one of our online contest sites that provided me a much needed photography challenge, especially since the snow has lost it's appeal mainly due to it's ugly black appearance! Surprisingly I won 3 of the 28 possible "Heart to Heart" pictures of the day:
"You've Got My Heart on a String"February 10th Winner
|"Three Little Words"|
February 15th Winner
|"Take Another Little Piece of My Heart"|
February 21st Winner
We wrapped the month up with school vacation, bookended by two 7-year old birthday parties, one at Jump On In and the other at Kids Klubhouse. WAIT...is that even a word?? bookended?? My English teacher aunts are probably cringing as they read! : )
