Project 52, Week 24 {Personal Photography Project}

This week's theme is "Home" and rather than take a boring shot of my own home, I decided to capture our baby birds' home – their nest.  These are baby house sparrows which are nesting in our burberry bush out back.  A few weeks ago, there were 6 tiny eggs.  Five of the eggs hatched.  These appear to be the only 3 left as I have not seen the other 2 hatchlings in over a week.  I suppose they could be tucked under these three, but probably not likely.  Anyway, they are so darn cute and have no problem with me pushing the foliage aside in order to take their photo.  Their momma, though, is a total spaz (see last week's Project 52 theme "Hidden").  She jumps around from bush to bush, then to the grass, then to the tree, squawking at me the whole time.  Ha ha ha – she's gonna tire herself out trying to protect those babies.  😉   For those interested in camera settings, I shot this with my Canon 24-70L handheld at 70mm, natural light, ISO 1000, 1/60th at F4.5.

About Kim Hill

I’m passionate about my work and helping women feel comfortable in front of my lens. I want women to feel confident and sexy regardless of age or size. All women are beautiful and I'm here to help them see the beauty in themselves and the boudoir photographic experience is one step in that direction. I am dedicated to bringing a high-quality experience to the boudoir portrait session. My goal is to offer a fun yet relaxing environment where a woman can let down her guard, allowing that inner sparkle to shine. I’ve been a photographer for more than 25 years now. I started as a young child with my parents' 110 film camera, moved on to study photography in college, interned with a wedding photographer for a couple of years and then struck out on my own. I've been doing general portraits since 1998 and boudoir work since 2009. In addition to boudoir, I also offer high school senior portraits, fashion inspired sessions, and business executive head shots.
