Finale [Nurture Photography]

The plants on my outdoor porch garden have finally succumbed to the colder weather. We had snow earlier in the week and one evening my husband and I sat snuggled with delicious hot chocolate. Perhaps our Autumn was short this year? It certainly has seemed to fly past and I’m preparing myself for a long winter, the hot chocolate will help.

As well as the end of Autumn and the Nurture Photography Finale, Kristi and I have another announcement for you:

This season’s Nurture Photography Challenge will be our last.

I can’t even begin to express how much the challenge has meant to me over the seasons. I’ve made new friends and had the opportunity to see all of your beautiful work. I’ve so enjoyed putting the challenges together with Kristi, thinking of our inspiring prompts and coming up with tutorial ideas. The decision to end the challenge has been a very difficult one for Kristi and me, but we think that it is the right choice for us to be able to move forward.

We are going to be taking some time to work on a new project together, something that is more in line with the work that we want to be doing. If you think you might be interested in our new endeavor when it launches in the New Year, please use the form below.

You can enter your email address and we’ll send you an email when our new project is up and running:

  1. Have I mentioned how much I adore you? Hosting these photo challenges with you has been such a great experience. Working with you has always been effortless. What started as a partnership quickly became a friendship, and for that I’ll always be grateful. I’m so excited about our new project and can’t wait to make it all happen! Thank you so much for your friendship over these past few years. 🙂
