Photo Challenge: Free | Northern Virginia Photographer

Photo Challenge PROMO

Sometimes life gets in the way and that’s been true for the last month – finals, graduation, family visits, holidays, new job opportunities, conferences, moving, and more. With the stresses that came with December, we fell behind with our photo challenge. Indeed, it has been a challenge. This is a new adventure for us both and we didn’t realize just how difficult it might be to keep up. We are back on track now and apologize for the delay.

About Nikki’s photo: In the midst of the recent craziness, I was able to go to an amazing Christian conference for college students in Atlanta, Georgia called Passion. Though this is just an iPhone photo, it was such a powerful moment that made me think of Free — not only do we wonderfully live in a free country, but we are truly made free by Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.

About Alli’s photo:

When we first got our dog Spock, he was a nervous mess. He was a rescue, and did not have much trust in people. For about half a year he would tuck his tail between his legs, and would hide. Now a year later, he is confident, happy, and free!

About Nikki’s photo: When I think of bright, I think of several things: pops of color, sunlight, and brainpower — all of which bring a smile to my face. I wanted to incorporate all of these into my interpretation of Bright. The lovely Jillian modeled for me and her smiling face is exactly what I wanted to capture. Fun fact: Jane Eyre is my favorite book and I just had to sneak it into this photo!

Photo Challenge: Chasing Now and A Charming Heart

Announcing a photo challenge between Chasing Now Photography and A Charming Heart!

Photo Challenge PROMO

My friend Alli and I have very different styles when it comes to photography (and probably everything else from clothes to decorating haha!). Alli uses these awesome sculptures and creatures that she makes and she tends to focus on animals and nature. I am a people photographer — high school seniors, families, kids, you get the idea. I thought it would be fun to do a photo challenge to see how different our approaches to the same subject would turn out.

Our first post will be on Monday November 10th and we will post biweekly on both our blogs on Mondays after that. Want to join in? We will announce the upcoming subject the same day we post our photos. Just use the hashtag #AlliAndNikki and we can see your photos on Instagram.

Here are all the places to follow us along on our photo challenge adventure:
