My name is Wendy and I am slightly obsessed with all things photography. My goal for 2010 is to take a photo a day and post it here, on this blog. At the end of the year, I should have a pretty good idea what 2010 looked like. Let's hope 2010 looks better than 2009.

Day 114

114 I actually did not indulge, although I really wanted to. Two more weeks of eating a lot of cucumbers and chicken breasts. Sigh... But I could REALLY go for a mall pretzel right about now...

Hi Wendy, I'd like to get more into photography, but honestly never used anything better than my Sony point and shoot. What would you recommend as a "starter camera"? Thanks! Briana priesterspeace.blogspot.com

I would recommend an entry level DSLR. Canon's EOS Rebel T2i or Nikon's D90. Both great cameras. I'm partial to Nikon, of course, but the best thing to do is to try each out at a camera store and see which one "feels" better to you. Good luck!

Day 113

113 "Sports-guy chest bump" From Modern Family. Love that show!

Day 112

112 Four weeks down, four to go...

I love your photographs! Do you do weddings?

I'm excited to shoot my first wedding next month! :)

Ask me anything

what kind of camera do you have?

I shoot with a Nikon D700 and a D50 as back-up.

Ask me anything

I was wondering what you know about the 50mm lens v. the 150mm lens. Are they comparable? Which would you suggest? And why?

I need a little more information to answer that. I have both the 50mm 1.8 and the 50mm 1.4 and love them both. The 150mm would allow me to be further away to capture the same image but I don't know what the aperture capability is so it's hard to know if I'd recommend it. The smaller the number, the more I'd recommend it. :)

Day 111

111 He was after me again!


109 Our neighbors brought over two young horses to graze in our pasture. This one did not like me being in there with him. He kept trying to eat my camera. I think I'll stay outside the fence next time.


110 Ice cream after school. Yum!

Day 108


The eye doctor found out we have good insurance so she suggested I bring all the kids in for a quick check. It made for a great 365 opportunity. :) (He's 20/20, by the way)

Day 107


Ahhh... finally some sunshine. Can't wait for those warm summer nights.

Day 106


My daughter posing in downtown Boise. I met up with several other photographers and we had a day of non-stop shooting on Saturday. It was so fun!

Day 105


Day 1 of The Big Diet. Believe it or not I have to stuff myself with foods like this for the first 2 days.

What are your favorite props? How did you go about collecting props? Where did you get the adorable faux fur that you use?

I really try and make use of things around a client's home before I pull out my own props. I think it makes the images more meaningful to the clients. But I do like to collect fun props at antique stores, like the Pepsi crate I've used a few times. I love babies in hats too. :) Etsy is great for newborn props. The fur is actually a rug that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I love blankets with interesting textures too. :)

Ask me anything

Do you use a seperate light meter or just the one built into the camera?

I just use my in-camera meter. So far it has worked for me. :)

Day 104


After lots of headaches and complaining of double-vision, I finally took him in to get his eyes checked. He came out with these cute glasses. He was SO excited. Seriously. He's been wanting glasses for a long time. And I just thought he wanted them for fun since his friends have them. Mother-of-the-year award goes to me. Thank you.

Day 100 {Me Monday}


Day 103


I just love the light in my kitchen and the reflection I caught on the counter.

Day 102


He loves these bunnies with all his might. I have to keep an eye on him. :)

Day 99


More and more and more bunnies. Look at those feet!

Day 98


OK. So I lied. More bunny pictures. They really are just so adorable. This is George. They all fit in that pink Easter basket.

Day 97

A typical day with my 5 year-old and I. I'll miss this next year when he goes off to kindergarten.

Day 96


I promise. This is the last bunny pic for awhile. They just opened their eyes today and I couldn't resist. :)

Day 95


I was finishing up an assignment for a workshop and he was supposed to be "gazing into the distance and contemplating". He thought I was a little Koo-koo. So glad I snapped this as he was giggling at me.

Day 94


Do ya think there's a feeding discrepancy here?
The little guy is Steve, named by my 5 year-old son. And the big bruiser is Ringo, named by my Beatles-loving 14 year-old daughter.
Tomorrow is the day they're supposed to open their eyes.

Day 93


A house full of boys = a house full of Legos. And most are not put together like this.

Day 92


I only took three of the five out for this shoot. They may not look it but they're pretty fast at scooting around blindly. I was afraid they'd fall off the laundry room counter if I had all five out at once. They have more fur and seem to be eating pretty well so far.

Happy Easter!

Day 90


Pinewood Derby fun. Erik made a car shaped like an ice cream sandwich with a bite taken out. Erik and Will are racing each other. You can see them running down the track.

Day 89


Spring is such a toss-up around here. One minute the sun will be shining and the next we'll have a full blown blizzard. In either case you can bet it will be cold and windy. Sighhhh....

Day 88


From his Percy Jackson birthday party.

Has anyone ever told you that you look like Monica Potter from "Parenthood"?

Never. But I'll totally take it! (I love that show BTW.)

Ask me anything

How long did it take for you to switch to manual?

I read Bryan Peterson's book "Understanding Exposure" over about a month and practiced as I went. After that I just kept working on it. I'd say it took me three or four months to feel comfortable with manual to the point where it automatically started to "click". LOL
