The Finale {Nurture Photography Challenge – Spring}

May 17, 2013

This is it. The end. The {big} finale for the Nurture Photography Challenge hosted by Kristi, Rebecca and Alicia!

I’ve had so much fun with this and I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking with it and only missing two weeks. I’ve started before and didn’t finish.

The tips and tutorials from these three lovely ladies and photographers are always fantastic – at least to this novice shutter bug. I know, I still have so much to learn and I’m so happy that I found them, followed them and just love what they do.

To me they are truly an inspiration and I never feel as though I can’t share my work and that’s a big one. There are photography communities out there where you feel like the smallest fish in the pond and only the “big” and “popular” photographers get a word in – it can be quite intimidating to someone who is just starting out and trying to develop this passion into something more.

So thank you ladies, for making me feel welcome and for your kind words! It truly means a lot.

I’ve chosen my favorite shot from each week’s prompt for this finale. And may have added a recent favorite at the end! 😉

Week 1 {Yellow}

Week 2 {Turquoise/Splash}




Week 3 {Green/Nature}




This would have been week 5 but I didn’t manage to get the post out in time. But here is one of the pics I took of my little girl in her white dress.

Week 6 {Pink/Home}

And this last one is a favorite of mine – our cat Finn. I took it just a few days ago and love how it came out. I’m thinking about having it printed out and framed in either a black or white frame.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you for being here…

    they are all fantastic!! you’ve really become a stellar photographer.
    LOVE the cat one, but I keep going back to “yellow” — there’s just something about it that draws the eye.

      I like that one too. I almost didn’t take the shot because the girls were getting restless and we were ready to head home. Glad I did though!

    I’m so glad to have had you join us, Susi! I’m thrilled that you got so much from our challenge and felt welcomed. I hope you’ll come back again this summer as we’ll have more photo challenge fun! Thanks so much for joining us. 🙂

    P.S. That first shot is my favorite in your collection. You did a great job of drawing the viewer’s eye in.

      Thanks so much, Kristi. I can’t wait to join you again for the summer time and look forward to what prompts you’ll pick. 🙂
