Truth- I’m behind on blogging. It’s not that I’ve had nothing to blog about. December is generally a winding down time but this year it just…happened! When January is usually quieter for most photographers mine has been busier than ever! I had 3 weddings in December, 2 bridal shows the first two weekends in January and photographed 3 engagement sessions for 2013 so far. Did I mention I have two more e-sessions in the next week? It’s cold out but nothing a little under armor and snuggling can’t help;) I’ve also been doing some re-vamp to the business side of the studio. I’m getting a new logo by the marvelous Two-Cups Design! I couldn’t have found a better company: incredible at marketing design and seasoned in the bridal industry. Two-Cups also custom designs bridal invitations from Save-the-Dates to wedding invitations to custom thank yous. I’ve also been working on finding more creative, affordable product for clients so be sure to inquire about the latest products. SO…I’ll be updating my blog soon with sessions and hopefully more about life too.
Most people grimace at the thought of getting up at sunrise. They’ve seen it in photographs and heard about but never have experienced it themselves. The best part of my day happens at the very beginning. Every morning I wake up before the sun and venture outdoors for a walk in the cool, crisp dim light of morning. I gather my thoughts and talk to the Lord as I watch the sun slowly creep over the horizon. It’s like another world, the morning. So much to see and experience. It’s worth the sacrifice of sleeping in…every time:)
Oh no. My nephew Parker is crawling. He’s only 7 months! Weren’t we all supposed to have a few more months before thinking about socket covers, latching cupboards and sweeping floors daily? But good gray he’s a cutie! If he wants to crawl, we’ll go ahead and let him. Just Parker, please still want to cuddle when you’re tired and don’t wipe our kisses from your chubby little cheeks…for a little while anyway:)
Kansas: people around here regard Kansas as the big piece of boring you have to drive through to get to Colorado. I’ve discovered that couldn’t be further form the truth. Kansas is wide, open and still relatively wild…if you know where to look. Or I rather HOW to look.
“Kansas…both the desert and the jewel of the West…born of the prairie…with the throbbing of Indian chants for a lullaby…Kansas…once the home of countless herds of buffalo..the stamping ground of Custer…Wild Bill Hicock…Buffalo Bill Cody…Kansas…the land of dreams where once again phantom wagon trains lumber slowly over the prairies to the echo of buffalo guns…Kansas…land of sunflowers…at the crossroads of the nation…the land of people who made it Kansas.”
– W.G. Clugston, 1943
It’s time!!! Time for planting and tilling and weeding! It’s what runs through my veins…plants! I come from long lines of farmers on both sides of my family. My garden brings me so much joy I had to share. I planted some basics a couple weeks ago. I’ll spend all summer (when not editing and shooting) taking care of these vegetables:)
“The basic living core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounter from new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a different sun.”
Utah wets the thirstiest of adventurous appetites. From the towering red rock to the drifting dunes, from the sandstone arches to the spiking hoo doos, Utah is a land like no other.
How do you turn this…
