Nick and I took the kids on a walk the other day and we passed this amazing purple ground covering. I was in love and I knew who my lab rat was going to be. Thats what little sisters are for. RIGHT?
Because Utah winter weather is not conducive to outdoor photography or anything for that matter,(at least in my opinion....) I really focused on studio lighting and shooting this year. It was great because I could build my skill and still shoot whenever my trigger finger got itchy.....but really....there is nothing like shooting outside. WOW! I'm so in love with this little patch of purple up the street from our house. I was checking it everyday, because I was afraid it would be gone before I could photograph in it. I'm always on the look out for interesting backdrops and scenery these days...its like a treasure hunt! I love it when Nick drives and I can just search the horizon for my next shoot. I have to say we live in the most beautiful neighborhood....we've got a lake, streams, grass, bridges, stairs, and parks in a 2 mile radius. All super great for interesting pixs.
Doesn't she look lovely?! I made her lay down right in the middle of the patch and just so you know...it looked pretty, but smelled like stink! Isn't it great that photography is for the eyes and not the nose?! I love my sisters! They all are so accommodating and supportive of my love for this gig! KD is in hair school now, and she asked me to highlight her hair...which I've always done but this time I got real coaching and I was worse than usual. Funny how that happens. I don't think she was happy with the results, but I FREAKIN' L-O-V-E how it looks with the purple. Sooo at least we got some nice photos out of a bad dye job!
I'm redesigning all of my logos and working everything over to get ready for my website...I'm excited but we still haven't got THE SWEET HAVEN up...so I'm aware things take time. So keep a look out and wish me luck!
