Tender Look Photography has moved to Joanna Joy Photography!

Tender Look Photography has rebranded and moved to a new website!  (I left this old site up because I'm sentimental that way and love to flip through old photos for a trip down memory lane!)  The new site has fresh look but the same love of natural photos - documenting wedding days,  capturing family relationships for gorgeous wall prints. . . Visit Joanna Joy Photography to view current pricing, recent weddings, and tons of helpful wedding planning advise on the new blog!

Photo Challenge || It's the Little Things

Domestic Still Life

We've been adding a lot of blogging to this site recently and we're adding one more feature!  Shooting scheduled sessions is always nice but sometimes just dragging out the camera and playing around is just plain ol' no pressure fun.  Through the summer, when it's too hot to shoot much outside in the Phoenix heat, we'll start posting some personal photo challenges.

This week take a look around the house and snap a domestic still life.  A little vignette that makes you smile and feels like home.  To me homecooked meals mean home.  Chicken stew on Christmas Eve, summer BBQs with cousins, smoothie breakfasts on the porch swing . . .  I'm also a collector of white ceramics.  I once helped unload a box for a vendor at a local swap meet and scored a collection of beautiful large white bowls!  (My mom is a garage-sale and she instilled the love of treasure hunting in me!)

I'm not sure yet how you can share your photo, but I think I'll post a flickr group and we can all share our challenge photos there.  I'll post sharing instructions soon.  For now, take the challenge and appreciate the little things at home!
