Chasing Beauty

Oh, hey blog, No, I'm not one of those people who forgets they have a blog, I've just been neglecting it a bit. Here are some images from my travels and exploring from January- June! Enjoy!

Where are some of your favorite places to explore? What is your favorite time of year to hike?

Newborn Session

One of my very first newborn sessions and it went beautifully! Couldn't have asked for anything better. Here is just a small sneak peek of some of the shots I took. Enjoy!

Why I Love My 50mm Prime Lens

The 50mm prime lens effectively becomes a short telephoto lens, ideal for portraits, and an amazing depth of field. 





This lens typically produces nicer bokeh and with the f1.8 aperture you can get a sharp shot with amazing bokeh. Bright lights off in the background, twinkle with this little lens! 

One of my favorite shots so far with it.

Happy New Year!

I can't believe it is 2016! Here are some blessings, and some of my most favorite shots from last year.

Here is to a brand new year to take more amazing photos, and to get better at photography, I can not wait to see what this year holds.

If you're wondering about the point of the apple photo, it was for a small competition. ;)


              From myself, to myself. My newest and most favorite lens.  

Stay strong my friends, press forward, work hard, pray always, love much, laugh often.

Intricate Crystals

I'm still alive! I haven't posted in awhile and I wanted to make sure I let you guys know that I am still here and I have been crazy busy. ( typical bad excuse? )  :P 

I am more active with postings on Instagram and I would love if you followed me.   | trulyfocusedphotos 

I went out yesterday and did some shooting after I ran across these gorgeous frozen leaves and I just had to upload them for y'all. 

The intricate design on this last one just blows me away. God is amazing. 

To my American followers, I hope you all had a good thanksgivings yesterday! :)

//October Beauty//

                                           Macro raindrops, because it really is fall.

                                            I shot into the sunlight and I loved how it lit up the frost glistening off of the leaves, and how the                                                    bokeh is so subtle and pretty. 
                                                           Bokeh and Maple Leaves :)

Photography is not about the cameras, gadgets, gismos. 
It's about the photographer. 
A camera didn't take a great photo anymore than a typewriter writes a good novel.

Blessings and Summer

The Lord has blessed me again this year. I saved all summer for my first computer so I could edit my photos with Lightroom and advance my photography business more efficiently. Last night I bought a HP Envy Notebook, and I am now writing this post on it.  It's pretty amazing/weird using my own computer now that I've learned to do everything on a iPad.

I'm including a photo of my new computer ( look at the pretty bokeh! ) and a gorgeous view I came across on the weekend of Maffeo Sutton Park. How would y'all like it if I uploaded all the photos from Instagram onto here more often? :)  Leave me a comment if you'd like that. 

Goodbye to August! Have a productive new week!

Maffeo Sutton Park 

For the record, I'm a terrible blogger, I'd really appreciate some tips that'll keep you guys hooked here. haha
