That’s the only word to describe it. Blessed. Please always tell me that if you think positive thoughts and focus on what you want, you can pretty much have, be, and DO anything. I think I might finally understand what they mean. I want to be a photographer. I’ve told that to the universe, God and pretty much everyone I’ve ever met for years now, and today I finally heard okay.

I can’t wait for my first family shoot today, my first baby shoot on wednesday, and my first mini-maternity shoot on saturday… 
See? So blessed.

On a side note: can I just go out on a limb here and say that my dog has possibly the cutest nose thats ever been created?

Happy Sunday!

Here’s a pine tree shot to remind you it was freezing. Katelynn and Jake were such great sports!

And then a quick outfit change to show Jake’s style!

He’s silly. No, really. I know I say that about everyone and everything, 
but no one can make me laugh like he does.
He puts up with my ridiculous photo ventures and class assignments, 
like the one where I had to duplicate a picture by the world-famous Paul Mobley.
And he’s my muse. The one who grounds me and lifts me up at the same time.
My photography buddy. My motivator. My best friend.

Youda best, Sam. I love you lots.

pinthisDo you ever have those days where you feel like your head might explode? I used to feel like that all the time my first semester of college, and at the time the only things I had to worry about were school and a long distance relationship. A year and a half later my list has grown significantly. School, work, trying to start a business, organizing a fundraiser, looking for a new apartment… it just goes on and on. And I am about as nerdy as a person gets (I’m still trying to get perfect attendance about 10 years after all my friends stopped caring about such a thing), but today I am letting myself go. Today I am taking a personal day.

Now that I’m sitting here on my bed with Jackson snoring next to me and a half-finished lunchable begging for attention on my nightstand, I wonder… what does one do on a personal day? All I can think about is editing pictures, setting up photo shoots, cameras, lenses, flashes, projects, and poses- oh my! I suppose I’ll have some one-on-one with Jasmine Star (more specifically her magazine *ahem*) and celebrate the sunny 40 degree weather with a glass of lemonade.  Can’t go wrong there, right?

Heres to a break from the insanity!
