I've been pretty busy lately. Actually, the kids always keep me busy, but I've had a few personal things in the works as well. I had my first "paid" shoot on Saturday. I was both excited AND nervous. I learned a lot and realized that I really have a lot more to learn. It was really fun though, and I did enjoy myself. Here are a couple of shots from that day.

This little girl is seriously cute and loved being in front of the camera. She also informed me that her hair is auburn. Love that!




This little boy was so much fun...right up until the point that he announced he was ready to go home and then he was done.



And he has twin 18 month old sisters. They were dressed when they came, but quickly got wet in a fountain and their mom stripped them down. LOVE the cheeks!




And then there was this family. The mom is my good work friend (actually she's one of the people I work for) and she graciously set up the shoot for me.


One of the major things I learned was that 4 separate sets of kids to shoot is too much for me in one morning. It was a ton of fun, but I was EXHAUSTED after it was over.

In addition to that major happening in my life, I've also been asked to participate in a silent auction to benefit a local charity and that happens tomorrow night. I was asked to donate a photography session. I'm seriously nervous about that. I ordered my first gallery wrap to be put on display at the auction and it arrived yesterday. Very Cool! If you think about it, please say a prayer that someone actually bids on the session.

I'll be praying that God blesses this venture for you! If I were there I'd totally be bidding...
Congrats on your first shoot! Looks like you got some winners for the families, I LOVE the one of the chubby hand holding the flowers!

How very exciting for you. You're photos are beautiful. I love the colors on the one of the boy, mabye you enhanced it in some way. And, the cheeky gal is great!

I'm nervous for you too, but I bet you'll do great.

Great pictures! Your talent just keeps growing. Know the parents are delighted with your shots of their children. I love the close-ups that don't even include all of the face.
Love you, Saundra
