I Heart Faces-Week 2-Face photo and Birthday Celebration!

It’s a birthday bash for I Heart Faces all week this week; lots of fun stuff going on over there, so make sure to head over and check it all out! (Don’t you love their new logo? Amy Locurto, one half of the IHF team, is also a brilliant graphic artist; I love how she integrated a camera into the logo!)

This site means so much to me; when I made my first post I had no idea of the odyssey that was in store for me. I have grown SO much since then (and still have so far to go); I bought a new camera in April (Canon Rebel XSi), and then I asked for new lens for my birthday in July (50mm 1.4… sweet!). I now have a laundry list of things that I’d love to have to improve my photography; the new computer should be here SOME DAY, and then I’ll have Photoshop Elements. And more lenses are in the future, along with a better flash and who knows what else.
But, even more than the photographic skills that I’m aquiring, I have to thank I Heart Faces for the friendships that I’ve made through the site. I don’t even dare TRY to name the names,because if I do, I WILL leave someone out who really has inspired me. So, I’ll just say that some of the photographers amaze me through their talent, and others amaze me even more through their heart. Because of all of the people I’ve met and grown to love, I HEART I heart Faces! :<)
Now. Here’s my face photo (and the edits that I agonized over are here. I took this picture last Thursday (Jan. 7), when we finally got some snow (2 flakes…. well, maybe 200, but no more) here in Georgia. This gorgeous girl is our next door neighbor, and when she laid down on the drive to rest after playing hard, the sun peeked through the cloud cover and lit up her eyes. I love this picture of her; it really captures her personality.

So, if you’re an IHF participant, then let’s get ready to par-tay like it’s 2099! And if you’re not, then what are you waiting for? Just do it…

  1. Well, I know I would have to be on your list of friends, right? 🙂 I never dreamed when Angie and Amy started I ♥ Faces, that I would have friends that I never even met in person. I used to make fun of Angie because she had total strangers stopping by her blog all the time. Now she’s laughing at me because I actually stopped on my vacation to meet some blogging buddies. I have so enjoyed getting to know you this year and watching your photography come to this point. Wow! You really did capture the beauty of this girl. Best wishes in this week’s contest!

    Her eyes are just gorgeous! It’s like you can see down into her soul and with the background of her hair… this is a winner!
