Rebecca from the Dusty Cellar asked me if I would do a virtual blog tour a couple of weeks ago.

What am I working on?

Well, it changes from day to day. Tonight I worked on getting pictures of 2 little brothers edited for their Mommy. I love photographing children.

How does my work differ from others of it's genre?

I like to capture real life. Posing is nice, but I would much rather capture your real life interactions. I would like for my work to be like that of Donna BoucherJessica Dean or Susan Keller one day. I also love Sarah Robertson and Kelle Hampton's style. 
Real. Fun. Awesome.

Why do I create what I do?

I love shooting. I love seeing love at every turn.

How does creativity take place?

Creativity takes place in dreaming. In thinking. In smiling. In life. It takes place every day even when I don't have my camera. Creativity is colors and patterns and shapes. It is all around us.

I am going to pass this virtual blog tour on to one of my best friends, Maddy.

Maddy is much younger than me. She is all sorts of fun. Maddy has a beautiful heart. She is kind to her very core. I love her photographs. I did a little interview about her a long time ago. It will be nice to catch up with her latest ventures.

I love this! I participated in what I think is the same blog tour (the questions were the same), and I love seeing your visual perspective (mine was very word based!). Thanks for sharing some of your process with us :)

Such awesome photos as usual -I HAVE to get you to soot my family soon!!

Skeller said...

Thank you, Becky - I do like to try to capture real life :-). And I KNOW you like to, also. You know what I also think one of YOUR distinctives is as a photographer? I think you catch a delightful twinkle in children's eyes that shows that they know they're pretty special in the eyes of the lady behind the camera. You make people feel so loved and appreciated - I think the kiddos in front of your camera prove that you do that well and they sparkle back at you because they feel it!!
