How I View… {York Lifestyle Photographer}

Mar 1, 2013

Where I Live.
I am pleased to be part of a group of photographers participating in a collaborative photography project. We all recently completed either completely revamping our sites or building them entirely from scratch. It was a long, tough process, and we laughed, cried, screamed, and pulled our hair out together. In the end, we’ve become a great support network for each other. Through this collaborative project we hope to continue to grow creatively with our photography and wish to spread the talents of this strong group of female photographers to the world.

Each month we will be focusing on our interpretation of a different pastime that is near and dear to one of us.  For our kickoff post, however, we have opted to show you how we view where we live – so you can get to know a little bit more about us.

From where I stand, my viewpoint of where I live is one of a happy home.  I live with my two beautiful, crazy children and my devoted, loving (sometimes also crazy!) husband.  We are like most families, I think, in that we spend our mornings rushing around and our evenings trying desperately to catch up.  I live in a crazy beautiful mess.  Need proof?

I hope you noticed the missing sock.  Just another day in paradise…But really, this place is quite close to perfect.  We have a big(ish) city:


But we also have beautiful parks to hang out in.

McDowell Nature Preserve Jump

To walk through and smell the lovely scent of spring’s first blossoms.

Little bridges in the middle of nowhere to rest on.

And Lakes to watch the sunset by.

    Amy – I love taking a peek into your life! I could completely relate to what you wrote – rushing in the morning and playing catch up at night… My favorites are the flower and the sunset. A little peace amongst the chaos!
