Some how I got Vinny to take 4 days off from work!  I saw this as quite the accomplishment and I think he was happy in the end as well at least until he walked back into the office the following monday but that is not important.  What is important is the five mostly beautiful days we got to spend at my families lake house.  Hopefully more pictures to come.  My camera took a vacation as well.  Here is the one picture I have that my dad took of the view our lake house has, beautiful and relaxing.

Also while we were up at the lake house which is in the Berkshires we got to finally have our engagement shoot with our amazing wedding photographer, Christopher Duggan.  I met Christopher in 2007 when I was interning at Jacob’s Pillow under his wife Nel Shelby both still work at the Pillow in the summer and just bought a cabin near by and have the most adorable almost 3 year old.  It is pretty cool to see people, like my cousin Amy, become parents.  I have always loved Christopher’s work and since going into photography full time look at his work for inspiration constantly.  So I was thrilled, nervous and excited to have our pictures taken by him.  I am so happy with the results and the over all experience and am in even more envy of how amazing a photographer he is and how happy I am to be able to have him capture such a special time in our lives.

i keep getting lost on what day it is because my schedule has very little semblance of monday-friday which i like but makes it a little weird when you have spent just under two years with the exact same schedule.  nonetheless i started this morning at 8:30 at a highschool.  i work for a company that takes graduation photos and i had to got a rehearsal.  for some reason large numbers of high schoolers in cap and gown not as flash backy to high school as 600 high schoolers in normal clothing at their own school.  this is what i wore because i was told to dress professional.  please be warned that i have taken note and if and when i take outfit photos every again i will raise the legs on the tripod.  i was being super lazy and was like this low angle will be fine, mistake.

i got home from this around 11 did some computer stuff and then made some lunch which was super yummy.  leftover “mexican”, i say “mexican” because in our house “mexican” just means peppers, rice and paprika, everything else changes almost every time.  this was red peppers, rice, ground beef, onions, quacamole and assorted spices and just through it on top of some spinach for lunch.  i try to stick to a no chocolate rule during the day because one thing leads to another but i did have a nice amount of homemade chocolate ice cream.

not sure what is for dinner but i know i am hungry already.  snack time?

I have been pretty busy lately between my parents visiting and trying to start and run my own photo business.  You can see what I have been working on over at my photo blog if you are interested.  Should be getting back into a little schedule but until then, enjoy.

Hi All! I have been super busy between editing a wedding I shot last weekend and hanging out with my parents who are visiting from out-of-town.  So here are some glamor shots of the worlds most glamorous cat, Dexter.

yay friday! which means for me one i get the weekend with Vin! two I am shooting my first wedding! and three oscar sunday!

so i was suppose to do 5 miles today but i was getting anxious about time so i did a steady 3 miler.  here is the break down

mile 1: 15:43 (nice and slow)

mile 2: 13:57 (little not as slow)

mile 3: 13:21 (yay faster then before)

total: 43:24 (not bad.  did not want to over due knowing i will be on my feet all day)

after my run.very serious portrait.  still working on that mirror thing.  you think growing up in the myspace age i would be better but i have  a really hard time.  i also am surprisingly good sore from yesterday meaning it worked those soon to be abs.  not only will i be on my feet but i will also be  carrying around my huge butt equipment bag

note, major sucking in tummy going on here.  i had all the straps on to see how it fit including the chest and waist one.  this bag fits so much and i am so happy but it weights a metric ton and my back is going to be aching.  just have a few more preparations for the wedding then I am off!
