January 2016 – 5 on 5

On the fifth of every month a group of photographers will each post five favorite photos from the previous month. It’s a “blog circle” aka virtual gallery hop that will take you around to not only different corners of the interwebs, but the country.  We all live in different places and have different styles and loves of  subject mater and photography, but the what we share is inspiration and moments from our everyday and our professional photography. At the end of each Fave 5 on 5 there will be a link to the next photographer. Be sure to click on the link and hop over to the next gallery. Enjoy!

I have a back log of client posts to share and a few personal projects I need to get up here too. I spent two back to back weekends in Portland, Oregon with family and friends, but those DSLR images will have to wait for another post because I am in the middle of a computer upgrade (YEAH!) that involves migrating 5+ years of work (UGGG!). All photos I am sharing today were taken using my iPhone 6 – I am rarely without my phone and so, a lot of my life is captured with it.

These five on five posts give you all a small glimpse into my day to day life- something that can be a little intimidating when running a business. What I really hope though is that it makes you stop and say, “Hey that gal looks like fun and she takes a damn good photo too. Let’s hire HER to capture our wedding day, our family photos, our small business”.

And so, I bring you my super silly and wonderfully full January, 2016.

UntitledA weekend away with some of my childhood girlfriends. I call this one, The Reunion Tour.
UntitledI have been listening to Josh Ritter for so long and to finally see him live and sing along with him (and that smile, yup). It was such a GREAT night!
UntitledThese people. My family. My loves. My life. This was such a sweet afternoon spent at a favorite spot in town (actually one of the first places we ever went out to eat at in Tacoma).
UntitledI started the new year off with a daily yoga practice. I loved that the kids wanted to join me as we followed along with the youtube videos. And that southern exposure light we get in the living room, yes please.
UntitledBlue hour commute. It was after 7am, but with the rain and the shorter days, it was still so very dark out on this particular morning.
Please don’t forget that these monthly posts are part of a blog ring. Make sure to hop on over to Adriana’s blog to see what she was up to last month.

Keep chasing that light, Vanessa
