When it’s late in the evening and I’m sitting out all alone, me and the computer, maybe the TV on in the background to just create enough noise to keep me company — there is my old house. The house was built we think circa 1830′s? And has had many inhabiters. There is a warm connection that I have to this house. Even though I know I’m not alone when I’m in it. I am positive that whomever shares this house with us are protectors. And some would call them ghosts or spirits, I think that they are guardian spirits. One night my daughter Taylor whom sleeps like a *ROCK* was somehow awakened to her heating pad in flames. It had caught the entire side of her bed on fire and burnt her arm pretty bad. Now, I could just be speculating and hoping for the best but knowing how Taylor sleeps, I somehow doubt that she would have awakened on her own. So, at first I was a little spooked at their presence, but over time I realize I feel safer with them here.
I say that b/c I’m up late. Blogging. The dog has claimed my favorite super, uber soft zebra blanket as her own. She is snoring. Grey’s anatomy just went off. My kids are on Spring Break and spending the night with their friends. Jim has been passed out since about 8. He is such an old goat. Can never stay awake past about 9 pm. *that would be NICE*!! And all the sounds in the house are pretty evident. I rarely think about it consciously but more oft than not, it’s something I think about. Ask me about the house sometime and I’ll let you know some of the tales. There are quite a few.
Ok, and onto the works…
Charley (Sharlisa) and Ashley.
We got married at Debordieu on April 4th. It was small and intimate and all the charm of the sand and surf. They set aside LOTS of time for photos and we got lots of good stuff. I’ve said it before but the more time I have, the better and more creative the photos are.
I always get detail shots but I usually don’t post them so much. I do like the details, although I usually reserve the blog for the shots of the b/g which I like most. So I am going to start posting more of the entire weddings to get a full overview.
And, this is where Charlie was getting ready. This little nook was bathing in warm yellow sunlight and I couldn’t help myself to take SEVERAL right here in this JACKPOT spot!
In order to have more photo time, Ashley and Charlie met before the ceremony for some time alone to take pictures. This is Ashley’s little boy grin seeing Charlie walking his way for the firs time. Isn’t he cute? Little Michael J. Fox?
The day before it RAINED and RAINED so I wasn’t sure how the weather would turn out. It couldn’t have been more of a beautiful day.
And these are my motion shots. Or what I like to call my Verb photos. It was really tough to get my shutter to slow down b/c it was Sooooo sunny outside but I think this turned out pretty good.
Sigh. I love this one. And look how awesome the sky is. I tweaked it a LITTLE in Photoshop, but this pretty much WAS the colour of the sky with a smack of enhancement. Not too much, but a tid bit.
And, no surprise that I love veils as well. The vintage birdcage ones all the way to the flowy six footers. I just love the movement of a long one, or the chic sophistication it adds.
They eventually did get married.
And they really did kiss too!
Oh, I had several to do’s on my agenda for tonight. Making my to do list for my future assistant, resizing images for my boudoir site *www.LoftNoire.com*, updating my website, burning several DVD’s.. but in all reality. The blogging is an all nighter for me. So, just so you know I’m still around I try to maintain the blog as best as possible. And I know that plenty of others are able to blog daily and maintain it but it’s not one of my strengths… I struggle keeping it updated. And if I don’t have pics to post, I’m really not sure I’m quite interesting enough to let my words carry me. So, I try to save it all up and just blurt it all out every few weeks or so.
I’ve had SEVERAL sessions lately. Boudoirs.. Bridals, Engagements so I hope to get some more posted and resized to blog about. *disclaimer* I can’t post bridals until AFTER the wedding. Note to self. SHEEZ!
Be back soon.
