What is up?

Thought I would spend this Memorial Day catching up on everything I've fallen behind on.  I was super blessed in May with some super clients and great photo shoots.  The month kicked off in April (yah that counts).  I headed down to Amelia Island for the first time and shot a wedding.  I was super nervous as weddings are a big deal and can't be redone.  The wedding was a fairly small intimate affair and I ended up having a great time and was super happy with the end results.  This does not mean I wasn't freaking out as I went through the photos because I was!  I really wanted the photos to be beautiful and the family to be happy; plus I get nervous every time I do photos.

Following the wedding I was busy doing dance photos for the Moody AFB dance program.  That was two long afternoons but totally worth it.  The only thing cuter than a three year old in a tutu is a bunch of three year olds in tutu's.  The girls ranged in age from three up to ten or eleven and were all so adorable in their beautiful costumes.  I have taken a few gymnastics photos but this was my first take at ballet (dance) photos.  All in all I was happy with the way they turned out.  I was a bit upset that the two backdrops I ordered did not make it in time (they are still not here 4 weeks later) but was able to improvise.  I added some great textures to everyone's photos and it worked out very well.  

Because my plate just wasn't full enough I decided to add in a few sports teams.  I was able to add in a couple soccer teams and some baseball teams.  Sports photos is how I began in photography and I love taking them.  The younger kids are so cute in their big baggy uniforms or t-shirts.  Getting them to pose right is always a challenge and the facial expressions bring a smile to my face and a little laughter to my heart.  The older kids are trained experts after season after season after season of photos which typically means a pretty quick in and out photo shoot.  The sport seasons here are not quite what they were in Okinawa (no back to back to back) so I have to get used to the breaks in between, but am grateful for every team that comes my way.  Of course in between sports, dance, and the wedding I was busy doing homework.  Thank you to all my wonderful volunteers who gave up their time and loaned me their smiles so I can make it through two more courses at the Art Institute.  

I have a super spectacular special in June $38 session fee and some insane print deals.  I will also be headed out to Montana the end of June through the first week of July so schedule now to ensure a session.
