New Template

Hey Everyone,

I've decided to try out a new blog template. I was tired of having my photos cut off when they were a little bigger than normal. Nothing is worse than seeing part of a photo. This template allows me to stretch the page. Your thoughts would be so much help and much appreciated! I hope you are having a great start to the week!

It seems like it's been decades since I last posted, and I'm feeling really terrible. Things have been absolutely nuts around here, but finally, I think we are in one place for awhile and Josh and I can start putting down roots. After almost a year of marriage (Nov. 24) we will finally be able to say that we have a permanent address and that yes, we will be able to find our way out of the never ending mound of boxes and start living our lives.

With all the craziness I haven't been able to really take any new photos. I've been packing and unpacking and then I left my camera at my mother's house while we were living in a hotel. There was no way I was leaving my camera gear in a hotel. What if someone broke in and stole it. Where would I be then? So, needless to say, I don't really have any new photos, other than from a few sessions I have done, and a wonderful visit from our friend Danae and her daughter (our niece) Abbeigh. If you've already looked at my Flickr, these will be old news, so bare with me.

So, the new adventure for us, besides getting settled, paying rent in this apartment, and trying to survive, is me finding a job. Not cool. Not that I don't like to work, I do, I just want to be at home around the same time as Josh. We're newly married, and I know I can't be picky,but I'm pretty picky about everything. I hate to admit it, but I think I'm spoiled. I had the same job for almost 5 years, which I loved, but I didn't ever have to venture out and find something new. When I'm not more in control, I get nervous... I love being my own boss, but I don't know anyone down here, so I need to figure out how to meet people and get this photography business off the ground. FINALLY, I can say that, "Yes, I will be here in a couple months if you want to schedule a session." Not, "Oh, well I dont know where I will be next week for sure." Those kind of words are not really good for business. So, if you are reading this, and you are in the Kelso, Longview Washington area. Contact me on here or my email. I would love to get together and do a session.

Alright, enough with the shameless self promotion, I will get to a couple of pictures!

This is from our visit with Danae and Abbeigh.
Josh just loved Abbeigh so much!

Josh took this while I was holding Abbeigh. She looks a little worried here.
My favorite photo from the day.

Getting held by so many people, and being so cute is really hard work.
This was right before Danae, her mom and Abbeigh left.

My new favorite from Megan and Scott's session. This couple is seriously beautiful.

I love baby shoes! I love baby everything really.

Cute right?

And that is what I have been up to! I hope you have a great week this week!
