I enjoyed the day yesterday at the Earlier.org Gingerbread competition! I set up a Photo Booth for the jolly elves who were there to decorate their gingerbread houses! It was a full-on competition with folks cutting out the house shapes, frosting the houses and then decorating with candy and other goodies! Thanks to everyone who came by to take some fun photos! Here's the link to download them:
I've been privileged to photograph events for a local non-profit group, Earlier.org over the past few years. The most recent was their Sherlock 5K dog walk to raise money for Earlier.org's goal — a biological test to find breast cancer sooner.
Thanks to Earlier.org for the opportunity to photograph these lovelies!
Our studio has a new location!
They are in the process of building nearly 150 apartments that will be GORGEOUS! There will be more artists' studios -- and these are also very beautiful - glass rooms with lots of light! They are developing an outdoor courtyard for performances and other events. It is really going to be fantastic and I'm so happy to be located in this gorgeous space.
This past week I spent time at Click Away, a photography convention put together by ClickinMoms an online forum for photographers and moms! I'm both! I've learned a lot on their website over the years but the main reason I wanted to come to Click Away was to meet Sue Bryce.
I was lucky enough to speak with her individually and I laughed because she looked at me and said "You're a shorty, aren't you?" LOL Yeah.. pretty much so. And I think I'm getting shorter with age. Regardless, she was beautiful and amazing and I completely am excited to continue to learn from her. She teaches a lot about posing women, shooting beautiful portraits of every woman. I think this is so important!
I took a few classes including a pet photography class - Maverick the model was not at all cooperative, but it was fun to try to get his attention. I took a class on The Playful Photographer - about photographing children at play by Kellie Bieser. Oh my gosh. She's so cute and such a great teacher. You just want to scoop her up and take her home with you. I took a class by a photographer whose work I admire - Meg Bitton. I enjoyed the class I took with Michelle Turner who talked about flash and Profoto lights. Kate Parker shared her Strong is the New Pretty campaign and she's adorable. She looks just like my friend Jill if Jill had blonde hair. :) So those were the highlights.
I went on a field trip to old Austin. It was fun but I think I would have liked a little more structure as I'm not one to roam the streets alone. My friend went to an olive farm. I can't wait to hear all about it. Here are some photos from my trip.
Recently I was contacted by a nice group who provides foster homes for Boston Terriers in our area! I had a Boston Terrier before I got married and I always think of him fondly, even though he was crazy and ate my Christmas decorations!
After a few attempts at coordinating schedules, we finally found a day for the 2 lovelies to come into the studio for their session! One of the guys - Rowdy - is a 9 year old little Boston with a personality to fill a room! He gave the BEST kisses! The beautiful girl just LOOKS like a Boston, but is actually a Boxer with Boston Terrier marking! Lillith was a TOTAL sweetheart and very docile and kindhearted!
Can't wait to hear that these two sweethearts have homes!
