it has been awhile since my last post...many reasons for this, but we all know that reasons can really just be excuses so, why bother mentioning them,really? i mean, i could mention the fact that my computer was dead. i am very thankful to my sweet husband for getting it working again. it is quite difficult to work on building a photography business without a computer, that is for sure.
i hope you all have been doing great! many things going on that i will discuss in a different post, but for now i am going to post some photos from a shoot we did in foley, alabama in july at the foley railroad museaum's surrounding park
haydn, alana, & hadley are simply precious kids. i love how well the older brother, hadyn interacted with his two younger sisters. it was obvious that he is a great big brother. i could also see just how much the girls love him,too. almost makes me want to have another baby and turn our little family of four into five. nah, better wait on that idea for awhile..
great shoot of adorable kids at a cute location. (our kids loved playing with them in between shots, too).
i would love to do another shoot at that location again some day. i loved the bright, bold colors of the trains. i am guessing another shoot will happen there when we make another trip back to gulf shores/orange beach to visit friends sometime in the future. i miss them all terribly, though...of course, i am excited to be back in tn, too. just a great excuse to make it to the beach again, right? ;-)
oh, and for those who have asked if we have the photography website up yet...no, not yet. still working on that. i am VERY anxious to get that up. having a website is pretty crucial for any business, in my opinion. i am so full of creative ideas that i would like to see happen on the website, but with the current wordpress template we have worked on bit with it isn't happening as quickly as i would like. time is money, right? well, i agree with that statement to a degree. so, my ideas are almost exploding from my brain. i have seen some amazing photography websites and i have been influenced by seeing them, i guess. i realize that anything good takes time...i just kind of wish that i could shave off a bit of that time by not having to start from scratch.
so...i threw together a little website...it is not finished, nor will it be there forever since it is a free trial. but...you get the idea...i like this because i can basically plug in my ideas and info and go. impatient, much? but, yes another but...it is also a flash website, and we all know (or some of us might) that flash isn't so great for seo (search engine optimization). but, it was fun to quickly throw something together. did you catch the QUICKLY part? haha!

comments/suggestions? i realize that free is better and i will end up doing just that (if i must). plus, i know my awesome partner in photography, rocky, will help me with the site when he gets time. life is busy, yo.
oh, and update on the project 365, a photography assignment i gave myself to take a picture a day for a year...well, i am still taking photos daily, but have fallen behind on getting photos up on flickr. there were also some days that got neglected, photo taking wise, but..i am on track again with my daily snaps (though flickr is still needing to be updated). i had started to do that but then the computer took turn for the worse. oh, well...life must go on. ;-)
hope you all have a great rest of the week! i cannot wait for the weekend!! this past month has been so exhausting and this weekend is going to change all that in so many ways, vague much? ;-)
