This is me and my friend, Christy.
She’s a professional photographer.
I am a *very* amateur photographer.
So, when I heard about the I *Heart* Faces Photo Walk, I knew it would be something I’d want to participate in. And I thought Christy would have fun, too.
A chance to learn from other bloggers and photographers?
About 40 of us met up in downtown Dallas on Saturday morning.
We wandered around downtown, chatted and took photos.
It was a lot of fun.
This is Amy, a co-founder of I *Heart* Faces. She was taking a group shot of everyone.
As you can see, photographers are not afraid to get down on the ground for a good shot.
Here’s Christy taking a photo of one of our models. You’ll hear more about them in a later post.
There were so many cool places we found downtown to take photos.
But the *best* part? (Other than getting to hang out with Christy again…)
I got to meet Allie and Holly, two local bloggers I admire and follow.
Allie writes Fresh Confessions of a Screwed Up Texan, an honest, hilarious blog about life with her husband and boys.
Holly writes June Cleaver Nirvana, where she details her adventures trapping beavers, searching for Silly Bands and stopping chirping smoke detectors.
You seriously need to go check out these blogs. They’re *so* good.
I hope to be like them someday.
But for now, you just have to make do with my stories about dogs who walk like humans, fierce predators and my husband’s stinky feet.
Tomorrow, I’ll post the photos I took of our models. I hope you’ll enjoy them!
Thanks for looking!
