Busy busy busy

I've been trying to keep myself busy lately. I've picked up my camera and am starting to "put myself out there" to friends and family. Hopefully I'll be able to build a little side business eventually. Click here to see some of my recent photo work for a friend (and feel free to order something from her...I personally love her pieces).

I've lined up a newborn photo session when my friend's baby is born in August/September. Of course, it took me a beat to get myself together when she told me Baby Kennedy's nursery theme is bugs. But it was just a beat...not hours, days, or weeks, like it might have been in the past. I think I'm just excited to flex my photo muscles and see what I can come up with. Mom wants a four-generation picture with baby, mom, grandma, and great-grandma. I've got all sorts of ideas swirling around in my head so I hope I can translate at least some of them to actual images.

Of course, summertime is all about sunshine and popsicles and bike-riding and campfires. So...that's what we've been doing. Truth be told, we're busier now than during school...and we're not even GOING anywhere. Independence Day weekend brought a picnic McDonald's supper at the playground park (followed by running and sliding and swinging and laughing), a puppy transport, a picnic supper at fireworks, sleeping late, new photo editing skills practice, a campfire with roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, drinking wine, another dog transport/home visit, volunteer time at the APL, a new foster dog, playing Wii and air conditioned sleeping.

The jewelry photos are awesome! Great job. Sounds like a great summer you are all having. The laid back, inexpensive ones are the best, I think. :)
