Weekly Feature | Kerry Varnum Photography

It's February! I (Allison) am still trying to figure out where January went! 
This week we have Kerry of Kerry Varnum Photography joining us here at the Snappy Mama. Kerry's workshop - Environmental Portraiture - is open and gearing up to start February 7. You can find information about the class and registration here.

This week Kerry has picked the theme {connection} and we have seen some amazing submissions so far. Keep them coming in. 

Now - let's get to know our wonderful guest judge.


Where do you hail from?
I am originally from New York, but settled in New Hampshire after living in Atlanta, Georgia (where I met my husband), and then Boston. 


If you could photograph one person, who would it be and why?
Jesus. Need I say more?!?


When did your photography journey begin?
Like so many of us, it began with my eldest daughter (who is now 11). I didn't really dig into photography though, until I got my first digital camera in 2009. 



What is your best advice you would give yourself if you could go back to the beginning?
I would say, "Don't compare others journey to your own!" I spent countless hours wondering why I wasn't where someone else was. "How can every single image be so great, when I can't even get one good image?" I wasted so much time examining photographer's images, and wondering how they got the light and composition just right, when I could have been shooting for myself! Once I stopped wondering, and started doing, my photography came together. 




Keep all of your {connection} images coming in and have a great rest of the week, Mamas!

XOXO, Allison and the Mama's
