I've just discovered this page and am so excited about it! It was hard to pick just one entry for the best face of 2012 especially since up close face shots are my fave. I love for the lens to look close into my subject's eyes so I can  capture their very soul. Because of that, my pick was the black and white, although I had a shot of a little boy I also would love to have entered. I love, love, love up close shots of kiddos!

Happy New Year! https://www.olgafordphoto.com/blog/2013/1/happy-new-year I am so excited about 2013 everyone! Lots of changes have already happened. My husband took a youth/music director position in Bethel Springs, TN so we moved our family from Clayton, NC to western TN. It was a 12 hour move and we are now in a different time zone! It's my first time living out of the EST zone and I am looking forward to finding some new locations to shoot and some new places, and even states to explore. I went to Mississippi for the first time within my first week here just to check that off my list. Ha! I'd love to have a chance to visit at least all of the continental U.S. some day. After googling my former business name and being frustrated because I couldn't find it I asked for your input on a name change. Thank you all for your support in that decision. I didn't want to use my name because I felt it was too easy and I wanted something more creative. However, Monet, Van Gogh, Ansel Adams all used their names and I felt as an artist, my name should be on my work. I strive to constantly improve my technical skills by learning from others, but try not to look at others' work to keep MY creativity in my work. My rebranding would not be complete without a new logo, of course, so I've also designed one of those and am so excited to unveil it here! I am taking the month of January to finish out my new branding, adding new products to what I already offer and grow in my skills. I am looking forward to this next phase in my journey and thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support. I'm also resolving to blog more than 3 times this year. Hold me to that, OK? =)

Baby Bunnies! https://www.olgafordphoto.com/blog/2012/6/baby-bunnies We are blessed to have a nest of baby bunnies on the side of our house this year in the garden. It's been fun watching them grow over just these past few days. They are so adorable! I check on them every day and they are more and more squirmy. Mom's been doing a great job feeding them and keeping them covered. I think I am going to leave them alone now before they try to hop away too soon.

in Honor of Pop https://www.olgafordphoto.com/blog/2012/5/in-honor-of-pop What does a creative person do in times of sorrow? Create! I had seen something in my son's school folder that brought the movie Up to mind. Incidentally, the quote "Squirrel" from the movie is something I am constantly reminded of, but anyway, where was I? Yes, the old man in the movie had a lot in common with Pop, who went home to be with the Lord yesterday afternoon. He was a widower who was madly in love with the wife that predeceased him. A love story second to The Notebook, really. I instantly became inspired to do a typographic illustration inspired by Up. I cheated a little and created outlines for some of the type but not too much. The Bible says "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also" in John 14:3. Pop is in heaven now with God and with his wife and I find great comfort and actually, joy in that.                                                    

Death is swallowed up in victory 1Corinthians 15:54
