MTS Photography



Recently one of my blog readers reached out to me, and we began to communicate back and forth. She felt that my photography needed a better outlet than just my blog, and offered to help me to do that.  I was reluctant at first, as it seemed a bit of a huge project for me to delve into. However, Dianne continued to encourage me to do this, and before long, the two of us began to collaborate together, and I want to show you today the efforts of our work.

Dianne is a dear lady who loves the Lord and seeks to share messages from her heart with her readers by doing video shows.  She is very talented and is able to put together videos with a deep message.  She also has great skill and talent in creating websites and working on anything digitally.  I found her help to be invaluable as we worked together to create a website where my pictures could be shared all in one place.  

Without further ado, I hope you will stop by this new little place on the web that we have created:  




I will be adding pictures to this website as I can, so it will constantly be changing and updating.  What you see today may be different from what you see tomorrow :)  

If you would like to see a sampling of Dianne's work, here is a video that she made for me using pictures I have taken, using video taken of my daughter playing the piano: 


You can also see this video on my MTS Photography website under the "videos" tab. 

I want to thank Dianne so very much for her amazing efforts and work to make this website happen. Her help was invaluable and she was full of inspiration and ideas!  Dianne offers video services as a way to supplement her income, so do go by and check out her websites here:

http://carvodesigns.weebly.com/collection.html 

Diane offers her services to arrange your photos and film into video shows of vacations, family reunions, weddings etc., to be shared with others.  I invite you to visit her sites today, I'm sure you'll be blessed by any interaction with her, as I have been!

I hope you are having a lovely Saturday!  Today the sun has come out to shine here - it has been downpouring here all week.  Spring is coming, slowly and surely, but we are definitely having a very wet spring which is slowing down the spring blooms significantly.  However, we are supposed to reach temps this week up into the 70s, and I hope to come back soon with pictures of my tulips blooming :) Have a blessed weekend!

  1. Our oldest and his wife are in Colville visiting our second born and wife and baby Addy. They are enjoying a bit of sunshine instead of rain, too. So nice. Rains returning to us here west of the Cascades this evening. That's a beautiful video of your photos and daughter playing the piano. Happy Sunshine Saturday to you!

  5. The video was stunning and the choice of music played by your daughter on the piano made it all come together. The photography website is very nice, love how it is broken down into the various facets of your life through photos.
    A good decision to promote this creative side Marilyn.

  19. Marilyn... oh such gorgeous photography and Diane did a wonderful job putting it all together! I did a few of those about 6 years ago, of various trips and vacations and it was such fun.. but now do you think I can even remember how I did it???? no! I will keep Diane's info close at hand in case I want to do this again. Your photos are just stunning and I loved seeing so many all in one place. The piano music matched it all so well too. What a blessing that Diane reached out to you... I visited her websites also and there are some good ideas there. Have a blessed Sunday.. Marilyn
