I’ve been sitting here watching the puppy go about 400 mph, slide on the wood floors into something *preferrably with a liquid on top of it* and be completely oblivious that this shouldn’t be normal. Then. Rinse and Repeat. I am shoving ‘chewies’ at her hoping it pacifies the lucipher that lurks deep within! to NO AVAIL!
I’m just going to overview a few things going on in my life right now. Just to catch up with me. Maybe I just have been so busy that I need to see it in print to even put into context everything that’s been going on. This may seem like boasting but I’m a little excited about this so I want to share. Some of you may or may not know that the hb does some acting. He has done several small independent films and some voice over work. He is currently working on a Western called ‘Longshot’ and has written a majority of the screen play as well. Well, they pulled some major strings and got David Carradine *(Kill Bill) to fly in to be in the movie with Jim. We are filming this weekend and I will be doing still photography so I should have some pics soon. I know that may be small beans to some but for us it’s pretty exciting. I’m excited for Jim and the all the work he has put into this. Then seeing it all work out for him. It sure does shake up redundancy. I guess this goes hand in hand with our completely unconventional life.
And I want to mention Bridal sessions. I have a love/hate relationship with bridal sessions. I love them because I get to spend another day with my bride getting to know her and do what i like doing best: shooting. I love that she gets to do a run through of how the dress fits and what needs altered, to get her hair done to see how it will look – in essence, a great run through so that the wedding day is comfortable and preparations are perfect. That’s a plus. Many times we have determined hairstyles aren’t exactly what she had envisioned and the alterations for the dress were quite uncomfortable when in the dress more than 30 minutes. But on the other hand, I get these images and I’m GIDDY to play with them and get them posted but I CAN’T! Because 9 times out of 10 Mr. doesn’t know what she looks like and it’s not my job to blow that for him or her. Especially when brides do some funky, unique and off the wall stuff. I’m just itching to showcase it. You girls know exactly who I’m talking about! So the photographer in me finds bridals the hardest b/c I am doing cartwheels to show them off!!
I need an assistant. I haven’t been able to update my website in FOREVER!! I am putting feelers out there for a part time assistant. I need someone to help me with various tasks on the computer and to help shoot as well. I am going to compile a list of what I need and will post that soon. Examples of what I need without a detailed list: editing/ website updates/ marketing/ data entry.. shooting at weddings. Send me an email.
Had a fun girls weekend in Myrtle Beach this past weekend. 5 female photographers all got together and did some boudoirs. We stayed in a pretty posh place on the 23rd floor, that my friends is pretty high UP! That could be my fear of heights talking though.. I just tried not to look out too often. You know you’re in trouble when riding the elevator to your room, your ears start popping. You might be afraid of heights IF…
We played with light. Did some really cool double exposure type shots that Stacy took, so I don’t have them on here but they are on my facebook page under my tagged photos. Cool stuff. We must be nerds. Self acclaimed. And since I just got my Nikon they coerced me into just using my Nikon and learning it. And I didn’t do too bad of a job.
And I have a great bridal session I’d love to share but can’t. I also have a couple engagement sessions and a few more boudoir so I’ll be back. To ramble on and on…….
Until next time
