Leap into Spring - Photo Challenge...

Leap into Spring! {Photo Challenge}

<em>Leap Into Spring!</em> Photo Challenge


Check out Alicia at Project Alicia: Leap into Spring! and join in on the fun. She is an amazing photographer! Not only does she have such a passion and flare for photography but she's able to find the beauty in all things. 

Being new at photography, not only have I found some wonderful blogger friends (Bloglovin' shoot out: Breathe, Smile, Learn, Life's Curious Wisdom, Spoonful of Sugar, Lemon, Avocados & the Bay & Live and Love...out loud) that have helped inspire and guide me along the way but it has truly become a passion and now a fun and inspirational hobby for me. To be honest after my mom passed away last year it has been hard to find inspiration and passion in something beyond my hubby, kiddos and school so this has been a blessing for me. I know they may not be "perfect", but it is work in progress (read:some were taken with my iPhone 4 through Instagram at #leapintospring).

 Here are a few of my submissions via Instagram {follow me at @AllyKat13}

  1. Great photos! The instagram thing seems to be pretty popular. I need to check it out! And I like the photo collage tool - is that instagram also? Photography is such a wonderful creative outlet - so happy to hear it is bringing you peace. And happy you are joining in on my little self portrait photo club each week too! It truly makes us "photo club hosts" day when people link up and when they share the news of our club around with their friends. That's my favorite part of blogging - the community and friendship! xoxo

  2. Hey Babe! Thank you for sending me a link to your blog! I LOVED the wildflower pictures! Where did you find those!?

    I always love the shots of the little kids and, especially, love the shots THEY take too.

    It was wonderful to see you last week. You are beautiful, as always! xoxo

  4. Sarah Bear - Thanks love! I have a little secret...it was YOU that inspired me to pick up a camera and now it makes my day to snap away. I admire your passion in every post in the photos you take of all the wonderful things in and around your new home across the pond. Check out Instagram app, plus I have the app PicFrame which allows me to do the collage with labels. I love your selfie portrait club! I need to get creative with propping my camera up to take selfie photographs. XO

    AKD - Oddly enough those wildflowers are near a farm right off Palaski Road by my house. I'm sure the truckers thought I was crazy taking pictures off the highway...Ha!

    It was so great to see your beautiful, smiling face as always! Miss and love you bunches...

    Mr. Barrett - I love that you are my BIGGEST fan and greatest supporter with my hobby...and that is why I love you two infinity & beyond! XO
