When Easter rolled around my mom surprised me on one of those days that I just needed a good surprise. She had packed up Mitch and my Easter baskets just like usual and had shipped them out to us and had thrown in some fuzzy chicks to decorate our place with. That was one of my most recent “good” mom moments that really made me appreciate her and everything she’s done for me over the years. Yes, there were definitely “bad” mom moments, but coincidentally they were mostly when I was 13-20, so I’ll say those don’t count in honor of Mother’s Day. Thanks for everything Mom!
I spent all of today trying to catch up on orders and processing some new sessions. I, of course didn’t get as much done as I would have liked, but I did get a good chunk of everything done. Some of those things included editing three new sessions. Two are for moms celebrating their first Mother’s Day and one for two more new moms and a new grandma, so it’s only fitting that I put up three images today to give each of them sneak peeks. I’m also throwing in one of my favorite images of my mom.
The “L” here is backwards thanks to my fabulous “assistant”
This shot is (obviously) from my wedding. It’s one of my favorites of my mom because she is laughing and so genuinely happy. All of our wedding pictures were by the fabulous Andy and Angie Wood of A&A Photography who I can’t recommend enough!
Happy Mother’s Day!
I just couldn’t resist sharing a few more from yesterday. One of my closest friends has wanted nothing more than to have a baby and after some struggles, they are now giving this little boy a home. I know that they both know how lucky they are to have found each other!
Troy and Julie have given him one of the most beautiful nurseries I have ever seen. When I walked in on Friday the words on the wall brought tears to my eyes because they were just so true.
I’ve had a busy trip back so far. Today I spent the day doing pictures of a real cutie. Here’s a hint because they won’t get posted up here until I get back to Portage.
I finally got the nerve up to ask my boss about some trips back to Colorado. Turns out I had no reason to be nervous. He was completely open to me making my monthly trip back as long as I schedule it during away stands and I also explained to him that I can basically work remotely for them on those trips. So, I’ll be back April 24-29. I have a few appointments that I need to set first (that I didn’t have time for on my March trip back). After that though, my time is up for grabs. I’ll be contacting everyone that has emailed me and left me comments asking for info or showing interest now that I know what to tell you! Drop me an email if you’d like to take a peek at a price list and book an appointment.
Also, I’m working on setting up a mailing list so that I can send out periodic emails to let everyone know when I’ll be in Colorado and when I’m running sales. If you’re interested in getting on that list, email me at email@example.com .
Hopefully the weekend is going well and slowly for everyone! It’s a little dreary here, but thanks to the rain Mitch and I got to hit up a few of the area wineries today. Who would have thought that Indiana and Michigan had vineyards?!
My goal is to include at least one picture in all of my posts from now on (it might not always happen, but I’ll try). I don’t have any session pictures with me today, so I thought I would post up a fun picture of two of my best friends who I miss like crazy. Love you girls!
I’ve been wanting to get this blog up and going for a few months, but being a master procrastinator led me to put it off. Now that I’ve finally done it, expect some new work and a little of the old to give everyone a little spotlight time.
