seriously… who am i?

i really can’t believe how long it’s been. totally embarrassing. mostly because i have had so much to share, but just haven’t MADE the time to do it. it’s not that i haven’t BEEN able to, it’s that i just haven’t. no excuses here. just pure pregnancy laziness. ha.

but guess what?

it’s a girl!!! although i am sure that most of my readers already knew that.. old news right? hmmmmm..

AshbyH - I didn’t know you were expecting! Congratulations on more pink! So exciting.March 17, 2011 – 6:19 pm

Reena - New news to me! Have any names picked out? When is your due date?
Grandmas are supposed to know these things.March 18, 2011 – 6:40 am

tan man 2.5

i have had the honor of photographing this little guy since he was born. it has been so incredibly fun to see him grow up and change and become the busy body that he is now. when i say busy body, i am not even kidding. the kid never stops moving. ever. i love it.

Kori Davis - love him! and I LOVE how the pictures turned out. Thank you so much.March 17, 2011 – 10:46 am

i’m alive. i even have a sneak peak.

hi, i’m here. believe it or not.

i recently posted on my facebook page a status update that went something like this “big huge butterflies in my stomach”. the truth is, i had ginormous, gigantic, humongus knots in it.

as a photographer, there is nothing more nerve wrecking than shooting another photographer. then add on top of that it being a photographer who you admire and love, and it’s all over.

i may or may not have prayed for rain, or even a car accident that day. but i am so very happy that my wishes weren’t granted.

here is just a little peak because i know that e is dying to see at least one. so for her, two.

plenty more where this came from!

elizabeth - butterflies be gone (but thank you for for your kind words).

I love them. LOVE. look at my kids all backlit and yummy!!!

I’m so glad there was no car accident, you didn’t get the flu or that a tsunami didn’t come and wash us all away. You know how important these are to me.

did I mention LOVE??September 14, 2010 – 9:50 am

flash master

i’ve always been a natural light photographer. for many different reasons. the main reason: i have never known how to properly use my flash. there i said it. it’s out there.

that however, is no longer the case. i just spent the weekend with nothing but my flash on. for two days straight when my shutter clicked, my flash fired. i am a whole new woman. i am forever changed.

i’m definitely on flash overload, but am so excited to implement when appropriate.

big hugs and thanks to miss wendy who will be getting her very own post later in the week. would be lost without this woman.

the above is a self portrait inspired by wendy herself.

Kaysha - That’s awesome! Are your “laying” on a baking sheet? :) May 25, 2010 – 2:05 am

Michelle Sidles - I adore this shot!! Is this Kelly?! I’m so jealous of your Flash Knowledge! :) Can’t wait to see more of your flashiness!May 25, 2010 – 12:29 pm

dana - AMAZING. I need to try out a workshop like that.
You’ve convinced me. Well done Jenny!
and very cool photo.May 27, 2010 – 6:17 pm

Evie Perez - How awesome is this!!! I am determined to learn more about flash :) June 5, 2010 – 12:20 am
