…to the talent behind the lens.
I work hard on this blog, but there's no way it could be where it is if it weren't for my husband. Seriously, check out my posts from 2005-2008, if it weren't for his talent, his patience, and his support I would have probably stopped outfit posts.
His father was a photographer by trade, owned a camera shop in the town where I grew up. My mom even took photography classes from him years ago and remembers a little blonde boy playing with his Tonka trucks in the back room (we obviously didn't know one another back then). He grew up with a darkroom in his basement, and when he decided to leave his miserable stressful job he knew it was the right decision to go into business with his father. Together they shot everything from weddings to high school soccer matches until his dad died unexpectedly in 2008.
When we decided it made more sense for him to stay home with Emerson during the day and stick to weekend shoots, he threw himself into supporting this blog. We switched from my Point-and-Shoot to his fancy-dancy DSLRs. As Emerson has gotten older, he has learned how to both entertain her and capture pictures of my outfit prior to driving me to the Metro every morning.
If I don't mention him, it's not because I don't appreciate him and his skill, but because he does it for me, not for fame. But he does deserve some major props – for his great photos, his great attitude, his great soul, and for putting up with me and my crazy outfit photos every morning. We make a pretty great team!
Aww that is so sweet. this post put a smile on my face!
Let’s hear it for wonderful, supportive husbands! Mine also takes all my outfit post photos, but he’s an amateur photographer. The photos of you are beautiful. You can feel his love for you in them.
Yay for awesome husbands!
Mad props to your husband — you’re a lucky woman! Bisous from Paris to you 3. Karen
Fantastic post, made me go all mushy inside. Here’s to a great photographer, husband and daddy
Your husband does indeed rock! Nice to see that he looks as good behind the lens as he does in front of it. You’re a lucky lady!

Aww, what a guy! You make a terrific team.
This is a great post! I am taking my pics with my iphone which needs to be upgraded ASAP! Just can’t figure out the kind of camera to buy without breaking the piggy bank.
My hubby takes my pictures too but after 2 months – the newest is wearing on him.

What a sweet post! We are borrowing a friend’s DSLR right now and plan to buy our own soon. I keep telling my husband he’s going to have to learn to take pictures like on the fashion blogs I read, so I just might send him this post. And how sweet that your mom remembers your husband as a little boy. 🙂
Such a nice post! It’s great that you and your hubby are interested and participate in each others hobbies. My husband gets involved with my interests too. It’s nice to have that support system.

Funny I just blogged today about trying to figure out my DSLR camera, and losing my hubby and teen photographers to that darn school thing…lol. I have long admired your terrific photos, and am so glad to learn that I’m not simply a DSLR dummy. I just learned how to adjust the ISO yesterday, so maybe I AM a DSLR dummy…I may go look at your 2005-2008 pics just to make myself feel better 😛
I think it’s great you’re giving props to the talent behind the lens 🙂
