Re-introduction to Photography by Char!


Almost 1 year ago I made my first post to this blog dated February 25, 2013.  I was extremely excited because I had hired someone to design me a Logo, Website and this Blog!

However, I did not follow thru with posting to this blog as I originally promised.  Shoot, I didn’t even keep my website design for a year! The Logo was the only thing that I truly kept.

So now that I have admitted this to you, my readers and customers, this is what I plan on doing in the future…

At least 1 blog post a week…  I PROMISE.  A blog post may be about a session, sporting event or team, something that I am offering, or how to do something website, ordering or photography wise.  You may even find more posts like my last one “Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning“.  Or I might just share someone else’s work that I found inspiring.

My goal for this blog is to draw more followers and customers.  I would like to be able to entertain but also provide informative information and share my work with the world.  When you read this blog, I want you to want to come back and read more or to at least gain you as a customer.

Okay…          I will be honest…                   both would be extremely nice!

Something about myself that you may not know… I am shy.                 Yes, a shy photographer who loves covering sporting events!

One might ask, “How does that work?”         Well…        it is like this…         I really depend on word of mouth.  When I am feeling courageous I might introduce myself to a new coach or parent and hand out business cards.  Believe it or not…    Facebook has been a tremendous help in this area!

As a photographer I am all about what I am photographing.  By that I mean, “It is all about you, the client, the team, the athlete and the sport that I photographing.”

I am not about the perfect pose or studio settings…   but instead, I love capturing what you or a team wants me to capture in the natural setting of being “on location”.

I love discovering the dedication of an athlete to the sport they love or the character a senior brings to their own life or the love between two people when they join lives forever in marriage.

Oh, and one more thing about myself…

I am also a mom.  A mom who has lived with those not so nice sports portraits of my children.  A mom who has coached little league soccer teams.  A mom who is very proud of her children and her work…

A mom who has developed a photography business based on my experiences as a mom and the inspiration that has come along with that experience.

My name is Char and I hope to be “Your Sports & Portrait Photographer” in the future!

Introducing 2014 Senior from Union City High School ~ Audrey

It was a delight to photograph Audrey’s Senior Portrait Session.  Audrey is an outgoing young lady who was recently a nominee for Homecoming Queen at Union City High School.  She enjoys Cross Country, Golf and playing her bass guitar in the Band.

We started out at Stuart’s Landing where we used the gazebo for some sport and band related pictures.  Then we stepped out side of the gazebo to capture Audrey with her favorite pair of running shoes.

Then we walked down to Perrin Dam.  There are some wonderful areas along the River Walkway in Marshall, Michigan that can be used for Portraits…  for example, this log that laid on a section of land just south of Perrin Damn.

Off to downtown Marshall where we took pictures along Jefferson Street utilizing the gorgeous red and brown brick walls with green doorways.

We even had Audrey’s family as lookouts for traffic while Audrey and I played in the street to capture these next shots.
