Snapping – New Church?

Its been a busy week snapping photos, organizing work… placing orders… keeping a home. I try hard to balance my business and family life well. I have been in the place of taking on to much work and feeling burned out creatively… I have been in the place where I can’t function as a mom because I am to preoccupied with my career. While at times it doesn’t feel like a career… more so a need… something I have to do to help make our bills… it really is a career and something I work hard at. Thankful for the …

Not for us sadly…

Well… I got a little update on the house situation. Sadly the one we were looking at wont work out. It was a bit of an oversight on our part… but in short, the idea of having 4 teenagers in the size home it was, just wasnt wise… we would out grow it way to fast. I want something modest but I also need room to breathe :) – and since we do think we will possibly have one more or adopt a baby girl one day… I just want to plan for that and also want something I can …

Studio Days Over?

If you read yesterdays post you may of seen some nursery photographs in it. As you can see… I nested this morning and changed things up a bit… I kept looking at this room thinking how much I disliked having the crib shoved in the corner… I had it where the bed is now (futon, folds up a lot smaller if need be). I almost felt like I had the baby secluded and put away. I had it that way though so that when Id have indoor portraits I would have a spot to set up my backdrop stand… But …

::sign…:: another investment

Its very frustrating to me when people say they will be there to fix a problem… then dont show and dont call… I find it very unprofessional.  I wont get into the details of it all… but after putting up with this for over a year we have finally decided to invest in our own internet service. We have been using our churches internet signal … but due to complications w/ signal strength, routers, etc… it just wasnt working out. We were forever having issues with it. So Travis made the call today to get our own phone line/dsl… we …
