Back From Savannah

About 2 weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to take a 101 photography lesson from my favorite photographer, Sara Anthony. Now I am the first to tell you that I hate having my photograph taken which is weird since I always wanted to be a runway model growing up. However, Sara has a way of capturing the spirit of the person or family she is photographing or as she puts it, "Evoking Emotion". No cheesy posing!! One thing I learned in her class was not to be afraid of breaking the rules. I prefer the artsy photograph anyways so this was great! Now I look for interesting backgrounds because they are just as important for my artsy photo.
And having a new camera lens to play with, didn't hurt. Thanks Sara for introducing us to the 50mm 1.8 lens! Incredible.
So as you can see I was really excited to try out my photography skills while we were on our spring break trip to Savannah. After the kids indulged me by modeling all around town, we were finally able to do what we came for. SHOP!!
My first stop is one of my favs.. The Paris Market & Brocante. Here I picked up some great new ideas to incorporate into The Vintage-Flea and new products to research. My 2nd favorite is One Fish Two Fish.
Here I picked up some great jewelry ideas. Who said doing research isn't fun!!
Then we were off to do the usual tourist activities. We walked all the squares in Savannah.
We then took a carriage ride to give our tired feet a rest.
At the end of the day we went to Tybee Island to enjoy a little coastal sightseeing.
We stayed two nights on the island... going to every souvenir shop in town and braving the windy but beautiful beaches.
Then back to Savannah and now home relaxed, refreshed, and renewed. Happy Easter everyone. Enjoy your day.
