Hello November, how nice to see you.  when did you sneak up and how long have you been standing there?!

seriously guys, how is November halfway over?!  and how is Breaking Dawn seriously out this Friday and NO ONE will go with me?!  and what is the world coming to when you can't find another thirty year old mother who will pretend to be fourteen and scream when a scraggly, hairy, pasty white vampire takes his shirt off on the big screen???

okay fine, I'll act my age in front of the other (almost) 30's out there.  but I want you to know that I'm screaming inside whilst all of you roll your eyes at the cheesiness of it all.

soooooo photo shoots have taken over my life as of late (in a good way), thus the zippered post for the last two weeks (but seriously I can't get over it.  so much so that I've been wearing that same pair of jeans every day since just to make up for lost time)

but, for all you aspiring photographers out there, this is no cake walk.  the learning curve is pretty intense and youtube and/or photography blogs and I have spent more quality time together than with actual human beings (easily) in the past month.  It gets pretty important to know what your doing pretty fast when people are paying you.  but really, I've learned so much so I'm so grateful for those who have had enough faith in me to produce at least ONE shot they could use for a Christmas card.

some other things I've *noticed* since my last post-
  • I need to spend less time trying to figure out how to make an influence in the world and focus on making an influence in my family.  particularly one (little) person in my family.
  • despite that woman's best efforts, I don't think I'm a bad mom for not putting a helmet on my toddler for a bike ride in an attached seat down the street of our neighborhood.  and it took me some tears and a reassuring husband to realize that.
  • hubs turned 29.  and no joke, I'm the luckiest girl on the planet.  no seriously.  i feel like I learn this more every single day.  how many people can say that?
  • little man has taken to heights and gymnastics.  no me gusta.  I picked the poor thing up at the bottom of the slide today with a mouth full of sand because he hit FACE first.  oi.  if he still has all his teeth by his second birthday I'll be shouting praises.
also....duh duh nah nahhhhhh! I started a new blog ya'all!  So now I can show off how gorgeous people are on a site that was actually made to do just that.  its not much.  but it will be just what it needs to be.  perfectly imperfect!  check. it. out!


  1. I have to say, i'm kind of shocked that you're obsessed with Twilight (BTW, so am I). Love this profession of yours... your photos are fab! Miss you so much, let's listen to Christmas music at the same time today so it feels like we're celebrating the holidays together again.

  2. I was just saying yesterday that I need someone to go see Breaking Dawn with (since my hubby swears he will never EVER be coerced into watching another Twilight movie) if you want someone to go with, call me!
