Magical. It’s what comes to mind when you say her name. Barb Uil, aka Jinky, is a world renowned children’s photographer from “down undah”. If you are a kids portrait photographer, my hunch is that you are pretty well acquainted with her work. If you aren’t, then I would encourage you to head on over and check out her jaw-droppingly gorgeous work. I was lucky enough to attend one of her state-side workshops in the summer of 2010 and it was such a great experience–inspiration abounded! She is a dear, down to earth and very open person. If you’ve contemplated taking one of her workshops I would highly recommend it. Fast forward to a couple of months ago when Barb asked me, yes ME, to be a contributor in her brand new e-book, “For The Love”. I was surprised, humbled and deeply honored that I was one of three photographers that would share their experiences for this project. The two other talented lady photo contributors are Stephanie Beaty of Lifeography and Kristen Cook of Kristen Cook Photography. This e-book is for professionals, aspiring photographers or even just moms and dads that are looking to stay inspired. My segment is all about photographing your family on holiday. Here’s a synopsis:
“A personal and inspirational guide and adventure into photographing your family and inviting time to breathe, time to love, and time to embrace what you have. An invitation to explore your creativity, whilst also recording the moments that your heart tells you that you must.
Filled with 160 pages of love, ‘For The Love’ is for anyone who loves photography, as it is a gentle reminder that we need to slow down, record, and remember these precious days.
Barb takes you through her own journey of recording her family, and provides you with tasks and projects in order to inspire you to document more often. With Guides and “How-To’s” along the way, this book helps amateurs understand the in’s and out’s of taking better photographs with camera basics, whilst also inspiring professionals to embark on their own projects. Whether your a mum with compact camera, or a professional photographer, there is something for everyone.”

Pretty much doing the happy dance over here.
