buy me a plane ticket to Florida or California right now!!!!! I am done with winter. done. I’m tired of the hems of my jeans being sopping wet and slushy. I’m tired of dark gloomy days. I’m tired of walking around the house with a down comforter draped around my shoulders because I’m chronically cold even though the temperature is set at 72. And I think david is pretty sick of me sticking my freezing cold feet on him. I look at it this way- I’m cold. He’s really warm. Once he feels my ice queen feet on his legs he will surely feel so bad for me when he realizes how much I’m suffering that he will let me do it. Or, he will be shocked into submission by their sheer coldness and will be unable to move. Like a stun gun. Unfortunately, neither of these hopeful outcomes is very reflective of reality. So anyways, I could really use a week’s vacation in the sun. If not for my soul, at least for my poor, poor feet.
Babies don’t sleep when I come around. Just ask any of the mom’s who have had me do newborn shoots! I always joke that there is a curse on me. I’m doing my best to learn all the tricks of the trade to get them sleeping soundly, because when they do finally doze off it is so much fun posing them. I love how you can fold them up any which way.
And p.s.- did anyone watch Miss America last night? Miss Michigan won! Go Michigan!!!
I have been so brain dead lately. If I don’t write something down, its like I immediately forget it. I have sticky notes of different colors stuck around my entire computer monitor. They say things like "call Grandma", "remember to bring the pack and play", "send in sales tax payment" and on and on. I guess my brain just decided to go on vacation without telling me. I’m so excited to tackle a bunch of projects I’m currently working on and yet I feel like I can’t get organized right now! My brain just won’t keep up with my ambition. I’m designing alot of new products for Swiss Miss as well as continuing to do photo sessions and catch up on editing my own family’s sessions from last year. I thought I was going to be bored in January but it hasn’t really worked out that way. I will say though that we finally got cable tv, and wow. Big mistake. It really sucks you in doesn’t it? After 2 years of only having 2 channels to choose from, I’m now like a caveman who’s been transported to the future. I’m like, "what is this ‘America’s Next Top Model’ you speak of?" I am wholeheartedly addicted to that show. Give me a hollah if you know what I’m saying!!
Mike and Heather got married over Christmas break- (Heather is my sister-in-law). She was about 15 when I met her when David and I started dating, so it seems strange to me that she is now old enough to be doing things like driving a car, legally consuming alcholic beverages, staying out past curfew and GETTING MARRIED. WHAT???
The wedding was in downtown Philadelphia and I just grabbed a few shots of them before they went into the reception. Their wedding photographer was really nice to let me do that. It was crazy dark outside at that point and I was shooting without a flash, so I just jacked up my ISO and lightened them up a TON in the post processing. The low light ended up adding alot of mood to the photos that wouldn’t have been there otherwise, so I’m glad it sort of worked out that way. I will really cherish having some of my own shots from their special day.
And just to nip any wise ideas in the bud- no, I will not consider photographing any weddings! =) Mike and Heather we had so much fun at your wedding and you make such a beautiful couple. We love you guys!!
When I was a child I was fascinated with snow globes. I would shake them up and stare at the swirling snow wishing that I could somehow enter into the magical world beneath the glass that looked like a perfect fairy tale. In a way I’ve always carried that mentality with me…wanting my life to feel like the perfect snow globe world (talk about setting yourself up for disappointment!) My sister came up from Georgia to visit once again over Christmas and we braved the windy cold to create some photos outside to celebrate her pregnancy and ever changing toddler. When I look at these images it fills my heart with excitment. To me they represent the picturesque way that I’ve always dreamed life could be. Magical, beautiful and full of wonder. In a surreal way I feel as though for a few brief moments I was living inside the pefect snow globe world.
