I’ve been pretty busy lately. Shooting events and a variety of other things for I.C. in addition to all the other shooting I’ve been doing for other clients. Here’s some exciting news, I sold photos to ‘Living the Country Life’ magazine. It’s a national magazine about, what else?!, living the ‘Country Life’. The feature will include photos I took of the Feldwisch’s birdhouse garden in Columbia, MO. So that makes 2 national magazines in 2 months (the other mag. being the ACF mag.). I’d say that’s pretty good!
So it’s nearly 3am and I still can’t fall sleep. I blame this completely on the fact that my little snuggle buddy, Miss Precious Perfect-my 6 mo. old Maltese, isn’t here curled up next to me. Today I took her to the vet to get “fixed” and it’s standard for them to keep the dogs overnight to make sure they don’t have a bad reaction to the procedure/anesthesia. I miss her. She lights up my life with her little personality. I can’t wait to pick her up at 10am and see her little tail wag furiously with excitement upon seeing her “Mommy”.
Here is a pic I snapped of Lucretia B. She’s modeling a new look that Staci Mains over at The Clip Joint created for her. Not only is this Lucretia’s first time ever sporting bangs, but another first- eyeliner! Staci is an awesome stylist…I totally recommend her to any girl out there looking for someone who really knows “hair” and what looks good.
I spent some time this evening shooting the Susan’s family pics at Shelter Gardens. They definitely win the “Best Dressed Family” award. Brinkley is growing up so fast! My favorite picture is the one of Brink standing by the fence, looking into the pond. I just love the light and shadows in that one. I was trying to catch a lens-flare (unsuccessfully though, I need to practice this technique more), but I still think the picture turned out beautifully.
Last week I drove out to Hermann, MO to shoot Stacey & Jordan’s engagement pics. I’ll be photographing their wedding in October. After what seemed like a terrible day for outdoor pics, the sky cleared up just in time. I made them trek all over the place, through mud, tall grass, etc….all so we could get the perfect pictures! Stacey & Jordan were great, they didn’t mind hiking all over the place at the risk of major bug bites, and because of their willingness to take my direction (thanks again guys!) the pics are AWESOME!
