Nothing makes me more proud than to announce that Trude has finally launched her website!
I’ve had the privilege to capture her through my journey, you can check it out here, here and here. As I was editing these photos, it made me think of her own journey. Way back when she got her first SLR camera, in 2007. I still remember reading her blog for the first time and thinking to myself, she is creating and this will lead to something. Her blog is what got me hooked on blog reading, finding great artists that through a creative outlet had discovered a talent, a hobby turned business. This and for many more reasons she is an inspiration to me.
When she told me about her plans to start her business and launch her website, I immediately knew I wanted to play with my camera and I am so glad I did. We ventured out on a Sunday afternoon to the Fullerton Loop first with a blue chair and all, because we’re cool like that. Then we were off to the Fullerton Sports Complex and walked the hiking trails. Although the sunset was not as pure and golden as the prior days and I felt a little off my game, it was still nice to connect and take a good shot at it. Here are a few of my favorites from the day. Somehow the story just flows through these photos.
Oh cuteness. Blue on top of blue worked marvelous, great job Trude and rockin’ this outfit with your pretty blue chair.
I knew I wanted to take this photo and it’s exactly how I envisioned it.
Sparkling necklace made by using her grandmother’s jewelry. Nice touch, Trude.
Gorgeous comes to mind.
Loving all the mustard yellow here.
Trude is a portrait photographer specializing in people and their pets, be sure to check out her website and say hello.
I’m so excited for her and the great things to come this year! She has been such a huge supporter of mine from the beginning and I can’t thank her enough. Like the nerd that I am, I’m already thinking of all the cool workshops we will be attending and hopefully big photo shoots or weddings I can hire her for. How lucky am I to have one of my best of friends as a professional photographer to collaborate with? To call my shutter sister? Counting my lucky stars.
My Trudes, I hope this was woodsy enough for ya and love ya!
