style me pretty

Wednesday August 17, 2011

Whoa! This is very exciting! Ingman Photography is featured on Style Me Pretty today! Thrilled to be featured on one of my favorite wedding inspiration blogs!

Jake and shot this wedding together and our friend Tia helped to design the entire wedding – it was a pretty special experience for all of us. Kate and Garnet are an amazing couple, and I am so happy their wedding was featured!

Make sure to check out the entire gallery once you get to the bottom (just like with Apartment Therapy :)!

Went walking in the woods today.

Saw a fox tail in a tree.

that is the truth

These are the two photos I submitted for an exhibition entitled Woman As Photographer at the Mpls Photo Center. I took these photos years ago, when I wasn’t taking photos for a living but more for pleasure. They were shot on a humble digital point and shoot but they are two of my most favorite photos I have ever taken. They are currently framed in my kitchen.

I definitely didn’t think they would win or even get in (which they didn’t) but I was glad that I put myself out there and tried. Check out the results and the winners — amazing work! Hopefully I will continue to challenge myself and photograph not just for work but for myself as well.

I love that the main subject in both photos is a mother, and that the connection between myself and the child is real. The little girl looked right at me, and the boy found my eyes right after I shot the photo. I love that one was taken in Thailand, and the other in Yellowstone, but both subjects are wearing a brightly colored sari. Most of all, I love the movement that both photos evoke…from a walk on a path to a brisk walk on a busy street market. It makes me remember each of those moments – where I was, and what I was feeling.

They’re not perfect but I think they are beautiful.

Titles I submitted for the exhibition:

Pink Sari

Woman on Path

However, giving it a little more thought I believe these are the titles I should have submitted:

Blurry Photo Of Little Girl Looking At Me and The Orange in Her Sari Matches the Orange in the Lake.

Now that is my sense of humor. Because, let’s face it, that is the truth!

Currently drinking a bit of coffee out of my Grandma Adeline’s old Uff Da coffee mug.

Even though I am not an every morning cup of jo kind of gal, Jake always asks, “Do you want some coffee?”

Today I said, “Sure.”

So, yeah, I have been busy!!  So busy!  July was suppose to be my “catch up” month where I planned on wrapping up the two weddings I had in June.  Along with doing just that, I also booked a wedding at the end of July, a 6 month old last Sunday, a newborn tomorrow, an engagement shoot on Sunday, a Senior portrait on Tuesday, a one year old the next Sunday and am assisting Paige at DeWees Photography for two weddings!! WHOA. Eight! shoots scheduled for this month, which means I am literally drowning in photos!  Woohooo!!!!

This is exactly EXACTLY where I wanted to be this summer and I couldn’t be happier. Sure, there are occasional moments of freak out and a tab bit of stress…but more than anything I feel so grateful. Grateful, to be working from home and doing something I truly enjoy.

Don’t get me wrong, the process of starting your own business is intense and frustrating at times. Lots of trial and error and realizing there are probably better and faster ways of doing whatever I am doing. Thank goodness I have Jake to help me and lean on, he is so great as my co-worker, colleague, husband, and best friend. Thanks Jake!

I get tons of inspiration from all the photog-blogs I read and all the wedding photographers out there — there is a lot to learn and I am excited.  Here are a few of my favorites - Jessica Claire, Jasmine StarJose Villa, Geneoh, and so many more.

Well, my coffee is gone so it is back to editing!  Don’t forget to check out Ingman Photography blog in the coming weeks — many posts to come.
