A New Little Project..


Ree Drummond

One of my favorite places to visit during the week is Ree Drummond's blog Pioneer Woman. She is having a photography/ photo book contest this week.."Faces". I am being brave and threw my little book into the pot in hopes she might find my work interesting. There will be hundreds of entries. So I thought I would share it with you and see what ya thought of my little book of faces.

Sarah: Thanks for the head's up. She has a fabulous and varied blog. Where on earth does she find the time to do it all???

Hope you win the contest!

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Me again - just went thru your photo book - and for sure you will win - love the one with Fox (I think) and the snail!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

I'm with Bonnie...loved the one of Fox and the little critter. Well...that's not absolutely all true...I loved them ALL! Good luck..you certainly have my vote!

Stunning picture Sarah!

Excellent photo book too. Good luck.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Your book contains many favourite photos that I've previously seen on your blog! I especially like the fact that you also included the dog and cat as important faces in your life! Good luck in the contest!

Sarah, this is a natural for you! You are always drawn to the intricacies of faces and their expressions.

I'm glad to see that you are stepping up your challenges in photography by entering them! Even if someone else's photos were to be chosen this time around,(and don't be disheartened. .remember, it is only the judge's opinion.) it is amazing how much more you can learn, just by studying the other entries. Having a diverse body of work at your immediate disposal is both stimulating, and hones your critical eye, which will relfect in your future endeavors.

Having said all of that, your selections are competition worthy, and I wish that everything falls in your favor to win!

Hugs!!!

Sarah said...

Thanks guys!! I appreciate all the support!!
BTW the picture of Ree is not mine..but a stock photo from the web..just so you could see her beautiful face!! She is a lovely person!!

Holly said...

Are you kidding me? What do I think? What I think is that you are gifted and talented...and if I didn't love you, as I've said numerous times, I'd be jealous of you!

Emmy said...

Great work and beautiful pictures!!

Kathleen Coy said...

Oh I LOVE Pioneer Woman! I checked out your photobook Sarah, and all I can say is WOW!!! It wouldn't surprise me if you were featured on her page, your photography blows me away! And your kids are so precious!!!

Much love!

AWE-SOME photos Sarah! You have a really great eye. Congratulation on a job well come. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you on the contest. You'd get my vote :-)

Renee said...

Fantastic. And it can't hurt that all the models are gorgeous.

Love Renee xoxo

Suecae Sounds said...

Cool idea. I hope that you will win. :)

Wild Roaming One (WRO) said...

Sarah...man oh man are you whacked with talent! Your photos are gorgeous...you capture the "character" of your subjects, or event...and that takes talent. I know because my BFF and husband are professional photographers...and it's harder than it looks from this amateur's point of view!

Thank you for sharing...and thank you for getting my "goop" ;-)

Peace,
WRO

Enzie Shahmiri said...

Sarah, I wish you god luck with having your "clan" chosen :)!

You have a lovely family and took some great photos!

Autumn said...

Wow, Sarah! Can you make me look that good, goofy, or cool?! :} I just love your pics and really hope that you are the big winner. Then you can announce to the world, "I'm a WEINER!" (Sorry, I have four little monkeys who love that saying!) LOL! Good luck,
Autumn Clark

spottedwolf said...

Lovely lovely pictures Sarah....you have amazing 'eyes'. Suz and I are impressed with all the 'character' you capture...Your family is beautiful and that includes 'ol' baldy'... ;-)

BTW...young "blue eyes" has the "gift"....far stronger than the others.

clairedulalune said...

Best of luck Sarah!! Not that you need it! Wonderful photographs in your photobook! My favourites are of Nonnie, your amazing muse! ((hugs!!))

Barbara said...

Love them all!! The one of Lucy makes me smile every time. But I agree, the one of Fox and the (snake?) is great. Totally your eyes. ... Love them all. Good luck!

I point and click! I have 4 rugrats so get lots of practice but don't dare take it off of the "automatic" mode!
