i just don't want to miss my opportunity, in this season of thanksgiving, to say how thankful i am. to do this thing i love. to work with amazing people. to hear stories. see love. hold babies. watch families.
dates and deadlines are not my specialty, but in order to keep on task i am going to give it a try.
November 11th....last day to order and have possibility of being back before Thanksgiving
December 12th...last day to order and have back before Christmas
I generally say give me two weeks for delivery, my printer is pretty fast, but I have minimum order amounts with them and have to factor in my time getting the order in and checking and packaging once it is in.
I will be out of pocket from November 13-17 & November 19-24. This means I will try to still check my email and respond in a timely manner, but will not be working.
I also plan to not work from December 18-31, this does not include order delivery or any sessions that are already booked.
From the second we pulled up at this location I was in love. It is pretty rare for me to shoot in a place that I didn't have some hand in picking, or have at least seen before. I had total faith that it would be amazing, I had seen a few pictures and Ms Molly has a great photographic eye, but it exceeded all expectations. I was in awe as I walked around every corner.
Molly was great to work with, willing to climb on things and sit in questionable areas. And she didn't even mock me for how excited I was about these dilapidated buildings....she was even excited with me.
On top of the location we were also working with great clothes (five changes), amazing weather, and she is pretty cute too (or gorgeous). Other than the horses, which I am apparently attractive to and scared of, it was a perfect shoot.
I could have and still could go on and on, but we were forced to stop by total darkness.
I'm sure I have mentioned in the past that one of my favorite things about working with my family is that I can use fun ideas I have in my head and have some input on clothes and they usually are up for whatever. My brother's wife is great with clothes and we have pretty similar likes and interest and so once again it was super fun to work with them.
Though things that would work with kids that don't know me are lost on my nieces and nephews, who know me too well, I do know what they think is funny and so I can usually get a smile or even a giggle.
This year I took my brother and his family to the zoo. It really is a pretty spot and a great place to watch a family be a family, I love that. We stopped along the way to check out some of our favorite animals. The giraffes were in rare form and kept standing behind them as we took photos. My nephew was having a very hard time not turning around to watch, but was pretty excited that the giraffe would be in the family photo.
We had the added bonus of some cool rides outside the zoo, set up for Boo at the Zoo. Unfortunately they were not running until that night, but still a pretty fun backdrop.
