Photography by design

I have always gotten by with a little help from my friends.

I admit my photography skills leave something to be desired, but I know they are improving thanks to two of my very talented friends.

There is OHMommy of course who is running periodic photography challenges, complete with her best tips.

And then there’s the friend I met in the local mom’s group I was almost too cool (or too scared?) to join waaay back when our sons were both mere infants. (That's her second son Theo pictured)

I noticed Kelly MacDonald right away and quickly sought her friendship. And why not? She was engaging and stylish, with a quick wit and an intriguing background in the arts.

One day, I figured, she could probably teach me a thing or two.

Well that day has arrived, my friends.

Kelly has just started her own photography business, with a twist. She has married her photography skills to her visual arts background to produce stylized children’s photos featuring saturated colors and labor intensive post production work.

AND she’s offering a discount and her best tips to all my friends, including YOU.

I wanted to drop by your place and say HELLO and thank you for popping by mine and leaving the lovely comment you did!

I'm enjoying hopping from post to post out here and reading your well written, often humourous take on life with a toddler and I'm especially appreciative of your review site.

Can wait to come back and read more.

What a talent! I'll have to check her out, it's such an interesting take; and kids grow so quickly, I'm hoping to get some nice photos done of the kids, while they're still kids, KWIM?
