    Seeing the work of other photographers provides me with inspiration

  2. Judith Krasinski on October 23, 2013 at 8:13 am

    Great locations and certain wardrobe pieces tend to inspire me most. I’d love to win!

  3. Kathy Austin on October 23, 2013 at 8:14 am

    I’m inspired by scenery outdoors and since I do show photography, I’m inspired by the amazing abilities of the animals I shoot.

  4. Tammi Becker on October 23, 2013 at 8:15 am

    I love creating images of kids that their Mom’s can’t. I love the excitement a Mom has over the images I’ve created for her. It’s my driving force. People pleasing, the love of photography, and all those whacky kiddos I get to meet. Best. Job. Ever.

  5. Owen on October 23, 2013 at 8:16 am

    I am inspired by the light.

  6. Laura Matoush on October 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

    I am inspired both by my family and when I capture a moment, emotion or expression that families will treasure.

  7. Sandy James on October 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

    Beautiful eyes and golden light

  8. Amanda M on October 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

    My inspiration comes from the love I have for children. I wish I could just read their minds. They are so free and loving.

  9. Chloe on October 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

    Thanks for the chance(s) to win. My main inspiration comes from relationships, I love to record those in my images!

  11. david n. on October 23, 2013 at 8:20 am

    I am inspired by the reaction I know that my photos bring to people. Especially if I am taking pictures as a gift for someone.

  12. Tuesdee on October 23, 2013 at 8:20 am

    Things that “inspire” me. Nature, my kids, and family. To capture a moment is my way of capturing a memory or an emotion. The moment lasts but a minute but the picture captures the memory and that can last a lifetime! Love your actions that help bring it to life!

  13. vanessa on October 23, 2013 at 8:20 am

    I am most inspired by peoples’ and pets’ emotions and connections. I am inspired and moved to capture them and share them with the people themselves and others.

  14. Chloe on October 23, 2013 at 8:21 am
  15. Kelly on October 23, 2013 at 8:21 am

    I love to capture the love between a famlily and the innocence of children. The candid moments that show how children really are and how they view the world with their open minds and fearless hearts.

  16. Shannon on October 23, 2013 at 8:22 am

    I am inspired by light, the outdoors, my subject

  17. Ashley on October 23, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Fellow photographers inspire me, but what inspires me the most are my clients. Their excitement, their ideas, their love for one another. I love seeing families interact during their sessions with me.

  18. Ann on October 23, 2013 at 8:23 am

    I think my biggest inspiration comes from my mother. She’s been gone for about a year now, but I always think of what she would think when I’m out on a photo op & how much she would enjoy seeing the shots I took.

  19. Shelley on October 23, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Inspiration for my photography comes from so many different sources, my kids, other photographers, the seasons if the year. You just have to open your eyes and look around to be inspired.

  20. Ariella on October 23, 2013 at 8:25 am

    I’m inspired by nature.

  21. Anna Goswick on October 23, 2013 at 8:25 am

    Capturing a genuine emotion. Freezing time so that you can always remember the sweetness of your child’s chubby cheeks and twinkling eyes, things that fade from memory after a while. I know nothing stays the same forever, so I like capturing little snapshots of our lives so I can remember all the little details.

  22. Fran Dellaporta on October 23, 2013 at 8:25 am

    I am inspired by everyday things that make me appreciate beauty of life.

  27. Amber H on October 23, 2013 at 8:26 am

    My children inspire my photography! I am subscribed to the newsletter.

  28. Kerrie Monti on October 23, 2013 at 8:26 am

    What inspires me: My youngest son. He’s 12 and he’s a special needs child. Justin has a way to make you want to see people and the world we live in as beautiful. He is unable to move hisself, and keeps his arms bent and held tight. Believe it or not, this inspires me to have people move differently in their poses, because they are able too. And I love natural smiles and laughs. This is something Justin does all the time. I also get inspired by taking classes from well known photographers on CreativeLive. Awesomeness.

    • Lorie Hall on October 23, 2013 at 10:12 am

      Justin just inspired me. Thank you for sharing and God Bless You and Your Family!!

  29. Jaclyn on October 23, 2013 at 8:26 am

    Knowing that I can show people how beautiful they are (inside and out) inspires me.

  30. Ashley Meyer on October 23, 2013 at 8:27 am

    Children inspire my photography. Knowing that they grow and change so quickly inspires me to capture all those fleeting moments that we all want to treasure forever.

  31. Rich on October 23, 2013 at 8:28 am

    I am inspired by the subject.

  32. Gina on October 23, 2013 at 8:28 am

    I’m inspired by every beautiful moment captured by others, every delectable dish I see, the beauty all around me & especially by my kids, who will stop & notice all the incredible things we have been given as gifts from the Lord.

  33. Ami Williams on October 23, 2013 at 8:28 am

  34. Tracey Thomas on October 23, 2013 at 8:28 am

    The pure innocence and curiosity of children and the stillness and beauty of nature are my biggest inspirations.

  35. Alexandra on October 23, 2013 at 8:29 am

    I’m inspired by love….

  36. Luisa on October 23, 2013 at 8:29 am

    I believe what inspires my photography is what I see in families. Their love, to capture it on an image to have forever.

  37. Jenny Coleman-Richardson on October 23, 2013 at 8:30 am

    I’m inspired by the history of things. Finding the beauty in something old and letting it shine through in a photograph.

  38. Lauren on October 23, 2013 at 8:30 am

    I am inspired by the simplicity of life through the vast beauty of God’s creation! A brilliant sunrise will take my breath away and inspire me all over again…

  40. Valerie Abel on October 23, 2013 at 8:31 am

    My grandchildren inspire me.

  41. Kelli on October 23, 2013 at 8:31 am

    The thing that inspires me most about photography is the ability to evoke a feeling of confidence in people once they seem themselves reflected in the images I produce for them. The response of, “I look so pretty!” is one of the best emotional responses I am lucky enough to hear from my clients, and it inspires me to spread the positivity!

  42. Amber on October 23, 2013 at 8:33 am

    I’m inspired by my clients. I had a client (who is now a good friend) that I did wedding photos for. There is one image of her with her father (wasn’t in my final edit, blurry & all) and they were laughing so hard at something that only they would get and he recently got very, very sick. She shows and shares this image with everyone she knows and absolutely loves it and that moment they shared. It makes me realize why I love what I do!

  43. Cassandra Tenney on October 23, 2013 at 8:33 am

    I am inspired by photos that convey personality! Colorful photos and light help convey my kids personalities!

  44. Steph Zimmerman on October 23, 2013 at 8:33 am

    I’m inspired by capturing emotion in my images.

  45. Wendy on October 23, 2013 at 8:33 am

    I am inspired by the beauty I see in everything when taking the time to look thru that little viewfinder on mt camera!

  46. Christine on October 23, 2013 at 8:34 am

    I am inspired by laughter. There’s something about the unrestrained joy in a laugh; the way the eyes crinkle and sparkle, the elevation of the head…it’s so unmistakeable. And it’s infectious. When you see someone laughing, you laugh and that ebullience just spreads. They say kids laugh 10 times more often each day than adults, so I listen acutely for my own children laughing and just bathe in the joy. When I’ve got my camera ready, I capture those moments to relive over and over. <3

  56. Mary Pawlowski on October 23, 2013 at 8:36 am

    Lately my biggest inspiration comes from MCP group posts on Facebook. I see some amazing photographers along with newbies and hobbiest all showing their latest work and others banding together to give CC. I learn something new each day that challenges me to go out and see things in a different light.I can’t wait for Inspire to come out and to order it to experiment all over again with some of my images to see what I can recreate! Actions are a whole new side to Photography and Photoshop (and presets in Lightroom).Thanks for all the actions, presets and inspiration and advice! 🙂

  57. Mori on October 23, 2013 at 8:37 am

    My kids. Photographing their milestones, how theygrow, how they change. It never gets old.I love to take their photo even when they sleep…However I have LOVE photography since I’m 10.

I try to offer low prices, and a lot of time, free shoots. I know how hard it is to get family photos, and I love being able to help people out. I did pin this on Pinterest too.

  74. Lis on October 23, 2013 at 8:42 am

    My photography is inspired by natural light. It gives me so much more room to creativity. Even on post-processing, natural light offers endless options to create a simple or a fine art portrait.Lis

  75. Steph on October 23, 2013 at 8:42 am

    If I had to pin it down, I think color contrast, texture and light are the things that inspire me the most. Esp when I can get solar flare, so I love the shot at the top of this page. I think it’s because it feels so real, as if you are actually there, experiencing that moment when the photo was taken.

  76. Shelli Johnson on October 23, 2013 at 8:42 am

    I am inspired by the love I see in my clients life moments. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to capture the love between a newly engaged couple, or a momma-to-be and her tummy, or the instant bond between the parents and their newborn baby.

  83. Diana on October 23, 2013 at 8:45 am

    As odd as it sounds, I’m inspired by sad events – disasters, hospitalization, etc. To truly appreciate the joy in life, we need to remember and honor the dark times. Its often then that we experience the most growth.

  87. melissa on October 23, 2013 at 8:46 am

    Inspiration is what finds me with camera in hand, it’s the joy my photos bring to others, it’s the fascination with which they look at my photos , it’s the amazement that the photo has frozen the moment forever and that there is something different about it. Inspiration also comes from me taking the time to stop and really appreciate my surroundings and really take it all in instead of rushing around and missing all the good stuff.

Other times I am inspired by dance movements and sequential patterns that the human body can make and freeze them in motion. Both of those genres are equally appealing because they move me internally and compel me to shoot more and more

  135. Nancy A on October 23, 2013 at 9:06 am

    The beautiful scenes across this country inspire me. Nature at it’s finest.

  136. Andrea on October 23, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Being able to capture my children’s joy, excitement, sadness, attitudes and surprise is what inspires me most about my photography. I love being behind the camera for those special moments.

  137. Colleen on October 23, 2013 at 9:07 am

  141. Heidi on October 23, 2013 at 9:10 am

    What inspires me the most? Capturing life. Literally. Most of my work as a photographer is as a volunteer infant bereavement photographer for NILMDTS. I record moments that are truly irreplaceable. I have served over 100 families now in that capacity and have subsequently had the pleasure of photographing dozens of “rainbow babies”, the babies born after a loss. I’d love this set for those sessions, the happy, heal your heart sessions.

  142. Jackie Cummings on October 23, 2013 at 9:10 am

    Seeing the work of other photographers I admire is very inspirational as is the work by someone I’ve never heard of. This group is a huge source of inspiration as well.

  143. Heather Hammoms on October 23, 2013 at 9:11 am

    What inspires me the most is my beautiful children. They are the most precious gifts, I am thankful everyday for the joy that they bring me. I am inspired to capture them everyday, as they grow and change so quickly.

    I am imspired by the beauty in the things around me. I love being able to take a location and make it look like something amazing. Whether it is a senior session at a rundown building or an engagement shoot at an old barn, I just love hearing my clients visions and styles and making them come to life with the things around us.

  150. Sara Heilwagen on October 23, 2013 at 9:13 am

    What inspires me the most is capturing the joy and love families have (including my own!) in a photograph. Receiving emails or comments that they LOVE! their images is the best feeling because I know I have achieved that.

  153. Shar on October 23, 2013 at 9:14 am

    My kids and my faith. My kids are the driving force behind what I do.I treat each session as they are my own and its a joy and honor to capture moments with my sweet clients.Many have become close friends and this “business” has turned in to more of a relationship building “business” than anything else. Capturing and providing images is an added bonus:)!

  154. Cory Wilde on October 23, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I am inspired by other photographers and the world around me and the beauty that is there to be found. A photographer friend once told me that an exceptional photographer takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary. I always have that in my mind.

    What inspires me is the ability to capture a moment in time and leave this captured moment for my children to share with their children. I cherish the photos I have of my childhood, moments with my grandmother’s. Times spent with family who are no longer with us, but are remembered through photographs. I want to be able to give this to my children. I have shared this on Facebook and Pinned on Pinterest.

  177. Aimee Costello on October 23, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I was originally inspired by my children. Then as I got more into photography I became more inspired by the art of it and creating something as opposed to just taking a picture anyone else could take.

    What inspires me…. I have never thought about this question but quite a lot inspires me. Colors inspire me. Other artists inspire me. Experience in my life that have shaped me inspire me. People inspire me the most. I don’t think I look for inspiration I think I just observe the world around me and life inspires me to create that moment. And lastly and most importantly, I think wanting to be a better photographer and artist inspires me.

    Inspiration is found in the small details of every day life. A wagging tale, a messy snack, mismatched socks, a smile; and most importantly, how different perspectives change the interpretation and presentation of these details into art.

    My photography is inspired by the desire to capture a fleeting moment. Looking back at photographs brings back crystal clear memories. Without making this into a sob story, let’s just say losing my stepfather very suddenly and having so few photos of him inspired me to pick up a camera and document my life.

    I’m inspired by my dad. He loved photography and even had his own studio when I was a kid. He was so proud of me when I decided to make it more than a hobby. He would give me tips all the time on the phone and took pride in seeing my growth. He passed away suddenly in April. I miss him dearly and I know he’s watching me from above and cheering me on with every click. So, I not only do this for me, but to continue to make him proud.

  247. Michelle Cahal on October 23, 2013 at 10:05 am

    The creativity – or art – behind the photo is an inspiration to me. Once the photo is complete, the sparkle that shows in the eyes of the viewer is the inspiration to do it again…

  256. Lis on October 23, 2013 at 10:09 am

    I am inspired by the sheer beauty that surrounds me where I live! But with that beauty, a picture is not a picture to me, without a person in it! The wonderful people in my life are my true inspiration.

    I am inspired by finding beauty in the most mundane environments and simple moments. I live in Los Angeles, a city with a lot of grit and rough edges, but there are so many extraordinary places and people that I think too many of us Angelenos don’t even notice.

  285. Erin on October 23, 2013 at 10:20 am

    I’m inspired by anything in nature – God’s creation is gorgeous!

  286. Lindsey M. on October 23, 2013 at 10:20 am

    There’s absolutely nothing like capturing the pure, innocent, unadulterated joy on a child’s face, or the excitement of a parent seeing pictures from a newborn shoot. Knowing these moments will be cherished forever is what inspires me… and that pure JOY! I’m still learning, but loving it!

  294. Ed Risinger on October 23, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I would say that I am most inspired by the people I photograph. I take shots that I would like and then adjust to create what I hope to be a beautiful representation of the person. When they see the pictures and smile, compliment and even get sentimental I know I am doing this right for them.

  295. Brett q on October 23, 2013 at 10:29 am

    The top three things that inspire me are my family, nature, and other people’s work 🙂

  296. Keith Gondron on October 23, 2013 at 10:29 am

    I am inspired by my grandkids. I started my daughter off in photography and she eventually earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art, majoring in photography. She takes incredible images. Her kids have inspired me to take more “people” images rather than landscapes and gardens. What better inspiration than beautiful kids!!!

  297. Margie on October 23, 2013 at 10:30 am

    I am “Inspired” by what I have seen so far!!! Love MCP!

  298. Tina on October 23, 2013 at 10:30 am

    God is my inspiration for all photography. His handy work is shown to me daily in the sky (clouds, sun, moon, colors, etc), in the landscapes He has created an through the innocence of my children.

  299. Mindy Davis on October 23, 2013 at 10:32 am

    Children are such a precious gift and they are what most inspires my photography. I love their sweet little faces and capturing their individual personalities forever in a photo. I love how this little girls personality is shining brightly in this photograph! This photo was edited with mcp eye dr, dentist, and one click color in the fusion set, 1/400 f1.8 ISO 200 85mm

    Other photographers are what inspire me the most. I see their photos and I just want to run out with my camera and start shooting. It helps that by reading and looking at blogs, posts, and just other photos I’ve seen my own work improve. Love your actions and posts. Thank you!

  308. Beth Pingel on October 23, 2013 at 10:40 am

    My inspiration is seeing the joyful and proud look on parent’s faces when they receive their children’s photos. I’m also inspired when I see snapshots from clients on facebook and my photos are proudly displayed in the background in their homes. 🙂

  326. Jinette L. on October 23, 2013 at 11:08 am

    What most inspires me is all under the same umbrella. The sense of humor the universe has is the most catching to me.. it gets you down THEN builds you up all in the same instance. Its a very competitive field. but if you have drive and dedication in your vision it can be the most rewarding thing to see other people’s eyes on your work. putting myself out there and growing is what most inspires me. as a woman, it the most uncomfortable i’ve ever been. but i couldn’t be happier!!

  352. Gina Lantz on October 23, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I am inspired to capture not only the beautiful colors that I see, but to preserve those little moments in time (like the crazy candid shots in between poses). Those are the moments that I like to remember and love to preserve for those I am photographing. Then they can look back at the photo and say “remember when…”

  353. Rosemary Rosin on October 23, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I live on a ranch in an area where there is still some native grasslands. Needless to say they have a beauty all their own. And although I am the daughter of a farmer it angers me to see these precious areas in grave danger of extinction as industrial size farms are sweeping our area. I am inspired to try and capture the beauty of what is left before it is no more.

I to often hear from people that they wish they would have had more photos taken with their loved ones. I take my camera with me everywhere. There are too many precious moments that happen in my kids daily life’s that I don’t want to miss capturing. Life is to precious and you never know when someone might not be in it any longer, but we will always be able to keep there memory alive with photography!!!!!

    I am inspired by many things. Relationships, moods, nature and new photography techniques to try always give me a boost in creativity.

  408. Marit Welker on October 23, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I love people and families. Boosting confidence and closeness are most important to me. So, my inspiration is expressing that in posing, makeup and hair with my senior girls, in playing as a family and watching them interact for families, and in just letting kids play and think it is a game. When I can catch that look that is so “them” then I have succeeded. I don’t need pinterest to learn to be like everyone else. I don’t need perfect composition and high art. I need to focus on the faces, relationships and feelings of my clients to get the pictures that capture their hearts. That is my inspiration. this picture edited with MCP mini-fusion.

  409. David Hyde on October 23, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    What most inspires my photography is my very dear friend, also photographer and MCPACTIONS user Kathy D. Seeing her most recent work almost everyday no matter where she’s at in the US she’s inspired me in so many ways! Different angles, software, lenses, editing techniques, taking chances, adding props, styles and pure PASSION and dedication its given me everything I have today and made me the photographer I am and LOVING every minute of it!

  422. Maura on October 23, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    I am so inspired by my family!

  423. Michelle on October 23, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    I am inspired by people. Behind each set of eyes is a story, personality, emotions, and things that we do not know about. But through photography I am inspired to capture that raw emotion and the person who they truly are. Look around- people are inspiring. Shared on facebook and pinterest! Thank you!

  424. al martinez on October 23, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    What inspires me is seeing that feeling people get when they see their picture and get so overwelmed they start crying with happiness because its more than they expected.

    My adorable three children are the reason I even bought a camera and their continued cuteness is why I have learned how to use it.

  427. Roxanne on October 23, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    My inspiration? Oh my, so many things! The toothless smile of my new grand baby, the smirk of my 17 year old son, the sun’s rays streaking through the trees, the colors of each season….I could go on and on!I also pinned and shared on facebook.

  428. Caroline on October 23, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I am inspired by all the little ones I get to photograph (especially my two girls!!). I’m also inspired by the kind photographers I have met through the mcp Facebook group! I have learned so much, and I’ve made a few new friends in the process! Thank you!

  450. Christa Nelson on October 23, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    My boys are what initially inspired me to do photography. I just didn’t want to miss a moment and I wanted to capture the memories to last a lifetime. I wanted a way to showcase how proud I was of them and my love for them – so I did/do that with my photography. I have created all sorts of ways to display it… my lil’ brag pieces. My passion to capture life’s moments and brag on the super stars in my life has spilled over into other family and friends. Celebrating their gifts, their passions and capturing them in a special way is what inspires me.

  451. John Hanna on October 23, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    My inspiration comes from life, every day activities can inspire me. It could be something I see on TV, something I see while I’m riding my bike, or something I see on Facebook….

    I am inspired by the ever changing array of clouds. They can change a landscape from pleasant to ominous within a few minutes. They can peak around or in front of the moon and sun, hover over a mountain, threaten you, or cheer you up. They are truly an amazing mood setter.

  457. Amanda on October 23, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    I am most inspired in photography by the light, and how it’s always different on any given day, and capturing the true connection/expressions with my clients. I love seeing other photographers work and how they convey their clients’ truest expressions. It’s truly inspiring. :)Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

  460. Tammy on October 23, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Originally what inspired me was just learning photography, and seeing what I could capture. Over the past several years I have found that many times the focus changes, but the constant has been saving a moment or subject to share with others, or just have for my daughter when I am gone. I shoot for me of course, but also for my family and the family I will never meet. <3

    In my early years dabling in photography a class mate inspired me to branch out with my photography by supporting and giving me tips. After graduating I continued by getting ideas from music, books and friends. I lived doing shoots with props. I lost my way a few years ago and got discouraged however my husband was able to support me and help me find my way back so now his love and encouragement has inspired me to take the time to learn more and continue photograohy on my terms nobody nobody elses.

    A real smile. The kind of smile that lights up their eyes in a way that no Photoshop action or Lightroom preset could ever duplicate… the kind you know will contribute to the deep, beautiful wrinkles on their face when they’re old and gray. If I capture even one frame of that kind of smile, I know I’ve had a successful photography session.

    What most inspires me in my photography is what I am seeing all around me. That may be sunsets and horizons or contrived nature as in my farm animals or my garden when it is flowering and stunning me with shows of flowers. Also what is tucked in my heart inspires me- my children and my pets, along with other people’s children- i photograph everyday school life and special events for our newsletters and magazine for the school where I work. All these things inspire me to get the camera happening and then enhance all the beauty and emotions I have captured with some actions or presets.

    I am inspired by capturing memories. I feel like I won’t be able to remember everything. My photos will be there to bring me back to certain times, places, moments and feelings.

  566. Anna on October 23, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    I am inspired by finding beauty in everyday things.

  567. Kalli on October 23, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    I am inspired by the tiny details of nature; the barbs of a feather, the itty bitty flowers of moss, the color of a spring bud…

  568. Rachel Ross on October 23, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Beautiful lighting and a peaceful feeling or look on someone’s face inspire me.

  569. Jen @ Lita's World on October 23, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    My family and nature both inspire me to take photos.

  570. dara b. on October 23, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    So many things inspires me: beauty from my environment, family, friends, other photographer’s work, etc.

  571. DITA on October 23, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Being able to capture the beauty in every subject is what inspires my photography.

  572. Edis on October 23, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Nature inspires my photography. Seeing the beauty created by God is always an amazing thing. Trying to show the beauty I see through my lens is a challenge as I’m not a professional photographer but well worth my time.

    Capturing a subject’s true emotions and persona are what inspire me

  574. Julia wright on October 23, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    I’m inspired by the need to freeze time of perfect memories, children, babies and more, sometimes we get lost in the hard work and forget the good times it is my job to record these.

    Just capturing an emotion. Seeing the reaction of doing that from my clients, family, friends. Having memories documented that even after I’m long gone will trigger a memory of that time.

  577. Laura Shaw on October 23, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    I am most inspired by the laugh and the look on people’s faces when they realize that I was taking their photo the entire time. when they relax right after you click the button, and they become themselves again, that is my truest inspiration: capturing the real essence of someone’s personality.

    I am inspired by colors! I love color 🙂

  579. Nichole on October 23, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    I am inspired by seeing what others create with their photography as well as the feeling of accomplishment I get when I create something that I love. I am also inspired by the beauty that is all around from the landscapes to people, to architecture.

    Nature inspires me. I love how the light captures things and makes it more beautiful.

    Life in general, the good the bad, and mostly the in between

  584. Wendy on October 23, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Taking pictures of people and places. I love taking pictures of people in action, having fun and making memories. And I also love taking pictures of the all places I’ve been to. Those two subjects inspire me the most.

  585. Rachel on October 23, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    I am inspired by the desire to capture special people and moments in my life and the lives of others! Time goes by so fast I want to capture and remember the special times with family and friends!

    what inspires me: fitting my subject into a background that tells a little about him/her.

  593. Kim Hewitt on October 23, 2013 at 7:13 pm
