Hey there!

I'm Jennifer and some of you may know me as a sewing blogger (Sewing is Required) and maker. After publishing my first blog post four years ago, I quickly realized I had no idea how to capture all the amazing images everyone else was taking. I worked hard on my sewing projects, and wanted my pictures tor reflect that. So I took the plunge and immersed myself in learning photography. Along the way, I've been fortunate to work with some fabulous teachers who have challenged me to keep improving and to develop my own personal style. I no longer want my images to look like any one else's and I now find as much joy in shooting a finished project as I did in making it.  Handmade View is a modern blog and collection of resources related to sewing, making and picture taking. I hope these words and images will encourage you today!
