tuesday photo challenge...

If you love photography like i do, and peruse Flickr on a daily basis, then you probably know about this girl called Olivia Bee. She's a 15 year old girl who has an amazing talent and the way she showcases her images...mostly of herself....is amazing.




























I wanted to challenge myself. I want to challenge myself.


What I really wanted was to take Susannah's class that starts May 4th, called "Unravelling.....ways of seeing myself". Susannah Conway is the author of one of my fav blogs called Ink on my fingers, she also is a photographer and was offering this E-class online. Well....needless to say...I had it on my calender to sign up and when my friend Vana emailed me over the weekend to see if I had signed up yet, I immediately hopped over to get signed up only to find out that the class had filled up.


Why oh why do I wait till the last minute for these things!!!!







{click on the picture above to see the info for the class}


So I ask myself, while i wait for the July classes to start, why not challenge myself to my own ways of seeing my self? Except....I'm not going to photograph myself like my favorite little lady Olivia Bee.........

I'm going to photograph little Lola. She is my inspiration after all. So I start today.

I went back and grabbed just a few photo's i had and posted them. I'll do some more for next Tuesday as well.

Would you like to join me? I'd love to link you! It's not about editing the photo's, but capturing and image.
Ready?

I love the "sad" look! Those are some of my absolute favorite photos of my kiddos. Smiles are overrated. I prefer "real life"!

Small House said...

Your pictures are great. I don't have an eye for this, so always have to hand it to someone that does.

Have a great day!

I have sooo missed you too and needed to give it a try and its working for me! My sister is trying to talk me into going to see the farm chicks when y'all go. My Dad lives in Washington too during the summer. Too hot for him here... You think I could get over myself and board a plane...yikes! It would be so much fun! Hope this great luck continues so I can come over for a visit tommorow too. Miss ya!

C Maisy said...

sure wish my little man was as photogenic as your little Lola. She's as awesome as her Mama~

Brandie said...

I would love too! I have a problem with my love of Lightroom, is that okay, or do you want the photos completely un-edited? I have a photo of Layla that I just took that I LOVE. I'll post mine later today.

Jen r. said...

I think that would be a fantastic class to take.

Kristin said...

I have seen this girls work. Amazing!

Oh and I am so in for this photography journey so link me on please!

How fun is this!

Always a smile to be found here. You have such a shiny and beautiful soul you do!

Leanne said...

Olivia Bee's work is quite stunning! I saw her work on another blog... amazing. There are soooo many talented photographers in the blogging community!

I used to be into fine art photography- awhile ago though. I'm not as connected anymore and I feel like I"m wwwaayy behind on the latest photography gear. In the summer of 2000, I took this wonderful photography course at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The school is quite close to Smoky Mountain National Park in TN. I kinda miss my hobby...

Liz said...

I always love your pics!

Sa-Sea Boutique said...

wow, fun! I am going to pull out my camera and start snapping away. I used to take TONS of pictures when Kacey was little...but sort of slacked off on poor Collin. this is my new afternoon project! LOVE IT!

DolceBaci said...

beth said...

lola is a beautiful inspiration...how lucky you are to have her !

and I missed the sign up, too....there's always next time and a reason that we aren't in this group that just filled up...everything happens for a reason !

Chablis said...

I'm a horrible photographer. (If you can't tell from the pics on my blog.) I like to blame it on my cheap camera...but I know better.

Lola is so cute with a little bit of attitude. Love it!

That Walmart story is hillarious! Of Course...only at Wally's!

Simply Me Art said...

Beautiful! I would Love to Join in, Count me in.. I have some Fun shots Ill post today of one of my little Inspirations! She brings me Joy and always puts a smile on my face. Lola is just the cutest little girl! Im gonna go check out the class too...Jamie

Anne Marie said...

Which child would I choose?

Why don't you photograph yourself?

I find that sometimes, this approach evolves into an unabashed sense in the camera....like meditating alone, or gardening alone....or singing alone!

I'm with you if you really do this?
or did you start?

maybe another cup of coffee would do me good eh?

La Table De Nana said...

I love the effects you add also.What a perfect subject you have:) And a spare too!

truly blessed said...

looking forward to your pics! Olivia's talent is amazing!
Feel free to pop over to my blog whenever you'd like. I add pics quite frequently. I love seeing things in a new light. Now if only I could learn how to use my camera to IT's full potential. :)

Brandie said...

I just posted my 1st entry in the Lola B Tuesday Photo Challenge:)

apriliniowa said...

Lola's a cutie, indeed. Ella's song is a fav. of mine & this subject is a keeper, too. Her blog has some interesting photographs for sure. I think I might like this 'Unraveling Yourself' Tuesdays idea... :)

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

WOW! Love all those images!...specially Little Lola's first! Too cute! Stop by some day, we'll love to have you over!
Clara & Marcela

Petit Coterie said...

The Little Red Shop said...

Hi Kasey, Thank you for visiting my blog. You're pictures are lovely. I've yet to be blessed with having kids...and lately I've been busy dressed in my home restoration best...so, I took a picture of my lunch. You can see it on my green day blog. I adjusted just about everything BUT the tint. : )

Have a beautiful day!
Julie M.

The Little Red Shop said...

ps "The Little Red Window" belongs to the bungalow I'm restoring. I took several pix of the great old windows just before the house was moved to our property. The leaves you see in the picture are from when the house met the tree which sat in it's front yard for many decades. I plan to blog on the window series and the bungalow rescue soon...

: )

Sara said...

Ok, I'm playing too, but I cheated and already have my post up. :-)

Let's face it, I probably won't post again until Tuesday or later, so it should still first on Tuesday...lol..

Vana said...

I love your way of seeing yourself. I too am sad you missed the deadline. That happens to me a lot:) Love LOLA in these pictures.

XOXO

Vana

Denise said...

I saw Saras post and decided to join in. I didn't take self portraits but things of mine that I love. I am trying to challenge myself more with my photos and textures....thanks for hosting this.

B said...

Hey, I don't know how, but I missed this post. Your pics of Lola are lovely; I love the one in the wellies! Can I join you? Eva is my inspiration; she's the only one I make clothes for after all. I promise to post some pics this week and link to you. Happy snapping! :o)

Nydia said...
