Today I am pleased to welcome blogging friend Nicole as guest photographer. Her photos are always full of charm and personality. I love her keen sense of style, her sweet personality, and her son’s giant red afro. Thanks for sharing, Nicole! Hop on over to Rose Runs Wild for stories and photos of her life.
Hi! I’m Nicole from the blog Rose Runs Wild! I blog about our little family living in small town Indiana. You’ll find a little bit of everything over there from every day life, lots of photos of our dogs, and even a few outfit posts. I do not consider myself a photographer in any way, shape or form, but I am trying to get better with my camera. I have absolutely loved learning how to use my camera, play with lighting and angels. Obviously my son and our dogs are my main focus, but they’re so cute! Thanks for taking a peek at my photos and feel free to pop by and say hello. Thank you so much to Carrie Ann for asking me to be apart of this wonderful series on her beautiful blog!
Have a great weekend!
