Life Stuff

I just love this little girl and her squishy lips.
The best part about being a photographer is the images you take of your own little ones.
I've been wanting to take some pictures of her in her crib and finally got around to doing it. I love how they turned out. And I love that she's sleeping in them.
I've loved the time I've had to spend at home. I've been reading and learning so much about photography. I finally feel like I can call myself a photographer rather than just someone with a nice camera that happens to get some good shots here and there.
I've learned how to shoot my camera in manual mode and get the colors right pre-photoshop. I love when something you've been working so hard at finally clicks (no pun intended). It's like instantly everything makes sense. I'm shooting my first bridal session tomorrow and I'm so excited!
I wanted to get some good pictures of Nora in her blessing dress. It's been almost a month since we blessed her and she fills her dress out a little better than before. She's so tiny she still hardly fits into half of her newborn stuff.
I need to start working again, either doing more photography or more loans. I still spend the money like I did when I made it, and my savings is starting to slowly disappear.

Don't tell Darin.

Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend!

Awww Jess, she looks like an angel. I love these new pictures, PERFECT! I am excited for you and your first bridal photo shoot. I'll be dying to hear/see how it goes. Good luck, although you don't need it, you are amazing. Congratulations on figuring out the sruff you wanted to. I love feeling accomplished, especially when it's somehthing you really care about. I think you've always been a photographer, never just a girl with a good camera. But I am happy that you FEEL like one now. Remember the "photo" shoot I did for you once?! ;) We are so funny!
AND I'll teach you my 'being poor tips'. Money is so over rated. Although it sure would be nice to have a few &&&& Miss you!

You are seriously killing me with these pictures. The ones with the crib slats...AHHHHHHH, STOP. but don't stop :)

Your pics really are looking great. I'm so jealous and wish I would actually invest the time to REALLY learn how to use my camera.

Jess those are amazing! She is just a doll... I wish I could hold her tinny little body. Enjoy that because they get big so fast then all you want to do is be able to hold them all day like you use to. Your photos have always been great I can't imagine them getting any better.
