lots going on. once again, my head is spinning! i'm about to burst! and some of the things i'm excited about at this point, aren't even definite. i think the fact that the future is pregnant with possiblity, thrills me. the thrill of the unknown. one thing that i want to mention that is on my mind and i'm enamored about, is a possible upcoming trip to LA. i have an opportunity to attend a very cool artistic event(more details on this to come!) as photographer; doing mini-shoots, plus shots of the event itself. and then a possibility of teaching a scrapbooking class too. all still preliminary. so why do i mention it? because if everything works out, and i end up in the area, i would love to do some photo shoots while i'm there. so if you are in the LA area, and would be interested in a photo shoot in october, email me for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. i'm SO hoping this all works out!
yesterday, i had one on one time with harper, doing her 2 year photos. there is nothing in the world like one on one time. i feel like i know her so much better, and that our bond is even stronger. she was a perfect angel, and we had the BEST time together. we went to three different locales and she didn't fuss once. i did wear her out...she fell asleep in the car on the way to the last stop. i've just begun to look through the images, so here are a few that stood out-
i thought this new grunge conversion was perfect for this shot. i was delighted to find this graffiti wall too!
i didn't have a brush along for the different dos we tried. but i love the messiness!
i love this one. she was pointing and saying "down". but she patiently waited while i snapped this one shot!
this last shot was taken downtown and the reason she is smiling so big? a super cute older couple pulled up and parallel parked right by us, just to watch! they were talking to her and she was talking jibberish back at them. right after this shot, she waved at them and said *bye* and blew them kisses! no idea who they were, but that is why i love my town! they were honestly just enjoying watching us and not threatening at all. we were in the downtown area around noon, and there were quite a few business people out walking and everyone we saw, stopped and said hi and chatted a bit. what a town! mayberry-ish!
i'm going to be heading in to the big city in a few minutes....i plan to pick up a big box of wedding magazines! and have bagels and shop. i haven't done this in forever, and i need it! always good for the soul...to just get away with no pressure. i don't have a problem with disciplining myself to work at home, i have a problem discipling myself to not work all the time! so stepping away for a half a day is a good thing.
did you take me up on my challenge yesterday? i know i did! i spent some good quality time with harper, and jared, and then later with tom, and i chatted with tara, and talked to my mom and dad, donna, pam and a few other friends. so good to get back in the loop. oh and on a side note, i think this is the sweetest thing ever-jared knew about the wedding magazine, and wasn't sure who would be carrying it....so he stopped by archivers on his way home last night! so out of character for him to stop at a place like that! it means the world to me, that he thought of me. and that he's proud of me.
you may have noticed that my playlist isn't playing on auto any more. i decided to make it optional. all you have to do to hear it, is hit play. last night i not only updated it in that way, but i added about 10 new tunes. i SO love al green and i had forgotten how much. i hope you continue to enjoy the music!
have a great day and God bless you!
