For the very first time in 50 days, I forgot to post. I spent the day at home with a cold yesterday, and by the time I woke up this morning, I realized that I had forgotten to post. On the one hand, it’s like how could I forget, I sat at home all day. On the other hand, well, you know that feeling when you’re sick and everything else just doesn’t really matter. I decided since I only missed one day I would just pretend like yesterday didn’t even exist and keep up the numbers..so instead of today being day 50, the halfway mark, I’m going to keep it at 49. The OCD in me is a little bit excited about this, because day 50 will now fall on a new month instead of holding off at the end of October.
Anyway, I’m still not feeling too hot..my ears are ringing so bad that even the sound of my keyboard causes a headache, and I’m about ready to eat an entire bag of cough drops in one sitting. But none of that matters, because I’m here to post the long awaited 49th post! Yahoo! Remember that couple I posted a few days ago? I finally finished their engagement shoot, so I thought I’d share a few more with you!
Also, Happy Halloween! :)
I got to do a photo shoot of an old friend and her little one the other day. He was so much fun to photograph because he was wayyy a typical boy. All he wanted to do was play in the mud and ride his bike (which made for some really great shots) but I did get a few sweet ones of him and his mama before he decided to jump in the dirt. Carter’s cheesy smile just kills me every time. So cute.
This doesn’t really feel like a legitimate post because what I really want to write about I don’t currently have a picture of. The worship at the youth retreat tonight…I have never seen or heard anything like it. I don’t even know how to describe the depth of the emotions in that room, or the power of their voices as they sang at the top of our lungs about the God who loves and saves us. I am just so blessed to know I get to be fully a part of this with my husband in just 4 months. Gosh I am so sorry I don’t have a picture for you. I can only give you a glimpse with a picture of the stage. Maybe I can get a video posted sometimes this week.
Just a warning, this weekend is the first possibility that I might not be able to post. I’m going on a fall retreat with my fiance’s youth group, and there’s a chance I might not have good service, therefore no internet, therefore no post. I’m going to try my hardest though. As for today, I’m posting early for once, but I’m in a rush because I need to leave for Indianapolis in about, oh, an hour ago. Whoops. So today’s picture is just another from the family shoot I did last night..Happy Wednesday all! :)
I’ve been SO terrible with getting these posts in late. It has been such a crazy busy week. I did a family photo shoot today, and some of the pictures of the two girls were so cute that I thought I’d post a few :)
God has blessed me with a bunch of photo shoots this week…I am so thrilled to finally feel like my photography is a job now, not just a hobby. I was able to do an engagement shoot today, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The fall leaves were lovely shades of fiery oranges and reds, and the couple was so beautifully in love that I might or might not have gotten a tiny bit choked up as I was editing. They are just so sweet together. So my photo of the day is one of my favorites that I’ve edited so far. It’s a black and white, so unfortunately you can’t see all the pretty colors, but I think the sweet couple makes up for that. :)
Well I think I can officially say I failed at posting today…unless you live on the west coast, then I’m still technically posting way before midnight. I’ll take the side of optimism just to make myself feel better. It’s funny, because I was working on my photography all day today, and it was the one day I completely forgot to post my picture of the day. Hilarious how things work like that. Anyway, since I spent so much time editing today I figured I would post some of my work. I took my best friend’s little brother’s senior pictures this afternoon and I’m pretty excited with how they turned out. He was really easy to photograph; very relaxed and natural which made it so easy for me. It’s the first set of senior photos I’ve done in a while, so I had a blast going through end editing these.
