i have to be careful when it comes to contests and competitions, because i tend to have a competitive streak. when i was a kid, i remember once in a great while, going to play putt-putt golf, and i remember being such a poor sport! i wasn't old enough to be good enough to win, and i hated losing! i've warned tom not to take me to play putt-putt....because even though i'm older, i still suck. so yesterday, kelly emailed me a link (from her sister tami) about a local news stations website's *a-list* of vendors....including wedding photographers. so even though i'm partial to tracy madden and channel 6 ; ), i bit and signed up. if you would like to vote for me, i would love it....however, i only want votes if you think i deserve it....not just because you like me : ) i'm a little late signing up, the voting started over a month ago, but it doesn't end until august 8, so who knows! here's the link a-list photographer . thanks for checking it out! oh and a little disclaimer: i can't find a way to edit, so i didn't realize that vertical images would be cropped to fit and now i can't find a way to change my images....plus i couldn't find where to put the text about my business. oh well. it's all in good fun-i will not be a poor sport- iwill not be a poor sport- i will not be a poor sport....
last night, i did a shoot of the sister, of the cutie from yesterday's post. she's pretty cute too-
here's the best part-she's as sweet as she is adorable.
last summer, i had this idea that i wanted to try on an adventurous family-i put it out there, and i had a volunteer family. well, i have another idea, but this time it's a little more specific. i need a military family. and i'm guessing that a military family would be patriotic, right? or is that not a correct assumption? i need a patriotic military family. i was going to use the location for my sweet friend holly, but as happens in military families, they moved (wah!) anyway, the land will be developed soon, so i need to do it soon, if i'm going to do it. oh and the other really specific thing is, it would have to be shot at sunset...like 8:00-8:30. so if you know of someone, or if your family fits what i'm looking for, feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org i will be shooting this for free (no sitting fee)....if the family wants to order prints, i would just charge for the prints they/you want. i'm super excited about this, so i hope we can find a good fit!
thank you for your comments and support yesterday. sue's comment, stated exactly what i was trying to say....i just want to be sensitive to others. i'm not ashamed or insecure about where i stand-i just don't want to sound self-righteous. and even though i like to think that i don't need validation, it is nice to read your encouraging words. so thank you!
i hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!
