Moving

03.24.10

I’m a busy, busy woman over here …finishing up my Workshop Workbook upgrade for it’s big release, spring season for photo shoots, and the biggie …moving to a new house on the 1st. Phew!We are moving from Los Angeles County (about 35 miles outside of the city) to a small rural town in northern San Diego county and I’m so excited to have some peace and quiet (and a big big yard!). I will be doing photo shoots on our 6.5 acre property (with huge barn and lake) as well as I’m only two miles away from one of my favorite shooting locations.  I swear I won’t mind not having a Starbucks .01 miles from me (right now I have one across the street) and will have to drive 15 minutes to Target. That’s about the same I had to drive back in Pittsburgh.

Plus, my family from back East will be in town for a visit and to see our new home. We’ll also be hosting them for Easter this year. Excited, but never made an Easter dinner before! Honey Baked Ham? { laughs } If you have any yummy side dish recipes, please share in the comments! Thank you!!

Cowgirl

02.25.10

I’ve been excited to blog about this session as it is one of my more recent favorites. Fresh from moving from Texas to SoCal, this girl was fun to photograph. You know she’s a Texas girl as she didn’t mind being around the cows (read: cow smell) and the gooey mud. She was a bit shy about her braces so not too many smiles, but you know me, I love the serious pensive look. I styled her clothing to compliment the country environment, complete with an old quilt (thanks Etsy!).

On another note … I’ve been receiving many emails asking when I am coming to Pittsburgh for sessions this year and I’m happy to announce soon I will be posting the 2010 dates. Leaning towards end of July and possibly a few fall sessions. Gary and I are having our wedding ceremony early October in PA so that will take most of my focus during that time. In the meantime you can go to the Work of Heart website for more information on PA sessions. Just click the “Investment & Details” page and next click “Pittsburgh Sessions”.

Beauty

02.16.10

Finally, almost caught up! Almost. I still have about five more sessions to blog, not to mention the new ones lining up as I head into my busy season. Although I miss living back east, I cannot complain about the wonderful west coast weather and being able to shoot outdoors all year round. Did I mention we have beautiful weather out here? (Just rubbing it in for my cold-weather friends! Actually, Gary and I went up to Lake Tahoe (my first time) this past weekend and boy I was freezing. Yes, two years ago 40 degrees would have felt like a warm front to me, but now days, brrrrr.

I am also excited to announce the coming of my new posing guide for photographers: Pocket Full of Poses. You can read more on the posing guide by clicking HERE.

Enough on all that. This little beauty was such a delight to photograph and seemed to bring beautiful light wherever she went.
