Can we talk for a minute about babies? I mean... Tiny humans are one of my absolute favorite things! Honestly, if things had gone my way, I'm sure I'd have had at least one more, maybe 2... I think Andy's a bit relieved that we stopped at three.
Babies are just the best... I find being around babies to be a big stress reliever and I like to consider myself a bit of a baby whisperer. So.... when I got the chance to hang out with baby Micah, I was on cloud nine!! I mean... LOOK at him!! Could he be more gorgeous?!! And he was an angel!! I predict a supermodel career for this handsome little man. BIG congratulations to his parents and I can't wait to hang out with him again!!
In a "normal" autumn, the leaves change color and then fall to the ground. This usually happens around the middle of October. This past fall was different. Fall lasted longer. It was drier. In some places, colors changed but in a lot of places, green leaves just died and fell.
Since I have a lot of clients that really want photos in the fall leaves, this presented some scheduling challenges for me. God bless those that stuck to their appointments and took the leaves at whatever color they had. I was so grateful that people didn't try to switch and reschedule that I opted to use my friend Photoshop to give them what they wanted.
Here's a little Before and After for you....
By altering the greens to oranges & yellows, it creates the look of a later fall. What do you think?
When I woke up this morning, I was feeling like I'd conquer this day. Then I realized, it was a holiday... and my kids were home... and my husband was home... and my mom was home... and it snowed... and another little surprise or two... you get the idea.
So as I was sitting on the couch wishing I had accomplished a lot more today, it dawned on me. I can still write up a cute little blog post. Right?
Now... This one won't be what you've come to typically expect from me. It's a session but it was really meant for a business. Have you ever heard of Zip Zone? It's an adventure park right off of Route 23 North of Columbus and when they added a new attraction, they wanted some photos for social media. That's where I came in.
I have to say, I don't think I knew what I was getting myself into. I was climbing. I was walking across wires and wooden bridges. I was many feet up in the air---with my camera---photographing people who are FAR more adventurous than I am. And as humiliating as it is to admit, they were quite a bit younger than myself.
You can thank me later for leaving out the photos of me strapped in all that gear. Super grateful those didn't make it to social media!! Those are tucked safely away on my LOCKED phone.
If you're ever in the market for something to do with your kids or maybe your office needs a group outing, I can't recommend this enough. I had a great time. I felt a little boost of confidence at having tackled the course and am looking forward to going back with my family.
You know what else I'm looking forward to? Warm weather! These photos warmed my heart on this very snowy January day. Perhaps I should flash back to Summer a bit more in the coming weeks. We can do this. We can make it to Spring!
We are still seeking Senior Photo models. If you know anyone, please have them contact me. There are awesome benefits!!
