Today I am bored at work (shocker, I know) so I began browsing through my photo gallery and I came across some forgotten photos that made me smile.

Recently I was presented with a pretty great opportunity...thanks to my Aunt B. A friend of hers has a children's clothing line and needed someone to take pictures of her products for her catalog and I got the gig! Pretty cool, huh? We had our first session this past Monday, and I had such a great time. Her clothes are super cute and the models were even cuter. Here are a few of my favorites from the day. By the way, the name of the company is Little Harp Designs.

christmas love Thursday

Since my freshman year of college, my brother, sister and I have taken a Christmas picture together to give as gifts to the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. It's become an expected tradition by all and over the years it has morphed into something all it's own. The first few years it was a nice, traditional shot of the three of us in front of the Christmas tree, but one year, in our haste to get all of our holiday "things" done, we almost forgot! So, on Christmas Eve while we were all wrapping presents together at my house, we remembered that we hadn't yet taken our picture so we scrambled together and got a shot that ended up being HILARIOUS! That night when everyone opened up their picture, they were in hysterics....and from that point on, the bar was set. Each year we have to try and out do last year's picture and let me tell you, it is SO MUCH FUN! This year, because of the new addition to our family, I came up with something totally different, but equally hysterical (partly due to Sam's footie pajamas). Here is the finished product. Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a blessed holiday.

Today I am irritated because what was supposed to have been a half-day at work has turned into a triple-time day and I am SO over it. I'm over this job. I'm trying to be grateful to even have a job in this rough economy, but it is very hard. I feel like a spoiled little brat for even complaining, especially since I pretty much get to do as I please here and I never have anyone looking over my shoulder....and don't get me wrong, that part is VERY nice and my boss treats me very well....but after 5 years of sitting here, staring into the wild blue yonder, I'm bored to tears. And the parts of my job where I actually have to do work, I hate. I'm sick of breathing in chlorine, of unloading box after 50-pound box of acid, and of getting soaking wet trying to untangle the huge, cumbersome vacuum hose...needless to say, I will NEVER own my own pool. that I'm done whining, here's a pretty picture....because a blog post is just better with a picture :)

50 years

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of going to the beach to photograph the most awesome family for the grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. It was such a great time as well as a huge learning experience for me! They were a big Italian family...18 people in all with 10 of the cutest kids I have ever seen. I left the session sweaty, covered in sand from head to toe and feeling panicky that I hadn't gotten anything that they would be satisfied with. Now, a week and a half later (and finally finished editing), I'm a little less sweaty, sand-free, and still slightly panicky that they won't like what they see (and paid for). I'm hoping that I'm just being too judgemental of my own work, but we'll I said, it was a HUGE learning experience for me and I loved every minute of it! And, I'm going back down this weekend to do it again! My sister and all of her Auburn Phi Mu sorority sisters are getting together this weekend for a reunion and they want me to take a few group shots of them with all of their kids....10 girls with 14 kids! That's right, I said FOURTEEN kids...........oh geez! Maybe this time I won't be quite as nervous and I'll leave feeling a little more confident. Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the day.

Twins...can you believe it? So cute!!!
