What could be better than that?
I've always enjoyed seeing photos with texture, but never really understood how to do it. I love the depth it adds and the way it makes a typical photo stand out. As usual if I like something I try try again until I learn how to do it. I'm learning that less is more, but here is some stuff I worked on. I took my two youngest boys out last week to the park for some fun and some shooting! I absolutely loved being out shooting, and they didn't mind my lens in their faces (very unusual)!
This is Noah running around, no i didn't give him anything to drink first, refreshments came after!
This is Noah again enjoying one of those bouncing, rocking horse thingies (yes that is the technical name for them)!
This is Branndon. He just turned 6 on Saturday! This kid has a heart of gold.
This one is Noah again, probably my favorite from the day!

So...Under the advice of all of my current advisers I have created a Blog! I don't live any kind of a glamorous life (Not taking away from the fact that I myself am G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S) so I am not really sure what to post, but here is my feeble attempt at being cool! (Must keep the natives appeased)
My name is Danielle and I am 29 years old. I live in the hills of Litchfield county CT. I have three wonderful boys, ages 10, 5, and 18 months. I also have the privilege of being married to the most wonderful man in the world. He truly is my "better half"! I love him more and more everyday. I know how lame that sounds, but you really would have to meet him!
I have loved photography all my life and our home is plastered wall to wall with pictures, but I never became serious about it until recently. I just had this "Ah Ha" moment! I didn't want to look back when I am 40 and feel like I was never really following the path that I was meant to. So of course, me being me, I jumped in head first! It has been a whirl wind so far and I have met a lot of wonderful and talented people! I hope to continue with those bonds and look forward to all of the new ones along the way.
My photographic style would best be described as photo journalistic. I believe there is always an emotion to be found, and I strive to capture it and bring it to the forefront for all to see. You can see some of my current work at my website www.BeyondTheLensPhotography.com . I have been couped up in this house for the last 4 months FREEZING up here in the hills so I am anxious to get out and get going again. My philosophy is that there is always something to learn and something to master so I'm looking forward to getting out into the sunshine (anyone seen any?) and get at it again! Also a note on the website: I'm planning to revamp the whole thing in the next few months so if anyone has any advice or knows someone who does that sort of jazz let me know!!!!
Alright I have babbled long enough here. So much for having nothing to write.
Tune in next time when I......
