I Am... I Dream...

I AM...

better late than never! I am Alynn, I am a SAHM with 3 beautifully busy kids (Elizabeth - 7, Caroline - 5, and Louis - 18 months). I am a wife, and pianist, a reader, a friend, a cleaning lady, a biker, an adventurer, a blogger. I am not a photographer -- yet. I have no classes, no fancy camera (I did get a new point and shoot for Christmas that doesn't turn itself off at every random moment, a step up!) but photography is something I've always wanted to do. I'm hoping to learn a lot from all of you. One of the biggest reasons I joined this blog is that I love the mix of women involved here, and I can't wait to get to know you better as we learn together from these challenges! Nice to "meet" you all!


(I debated so much over this photo... sepia, color, sepia, color?)


I DREAM...

of spring! We just moved back to Southeast Idaho from Washington, and this winter thing is getting old! I love a warm fire as much as the next girl, but enough is enough!

Nice to meet you!!! you look very pretty in this photo! I love that you are on the ground, it's a fresh angle. I also can't WAIT for spring, being here in Rexburg, aka, the Place of Endless Winter.... brrrrrr-- can't wait!

Beautiful picture of yourself! Glad to have you on board, and to see another who's no pro at photography!

I love your picture of the snowed-on wood-pile. I like the angle you took it at. Wisconsin winters NEVER end, so I hear you...I won't see spring for another four months!

Hi Alynn! Gorgeous self-pic- I think it would be Great in B&W (Not a big fan of sepia).

Gorgeous picture! I have a hard time choosing between color/sepia/b&w sometimes too. :)
