Beach Time

Here are some fun beach pix from my Florida excursion... These were taken at St Augustine Beach. Can you ever get bad pictures on a beach? And who knew that seagulls were so photogenic?

And proof that I was actually there, basking in the sun... (Random factoid--this was only my second time at a beach. My first beach experience was two years ago in Recife, Brazil! I will probably get the opportunity to visit the beach in Rio de Janeiro in August!)

Wall Decor

Here are some of my new favorite pieces from CAS's new product line. The photo shoot we had in Florida at the manufacturing plant went well. After lugging around about 400 pieces of wall art and mirrors and velcro-ing them onto a wall of carpet, I have a whole new appreciation for wall decor!

Blog TLC

Hey guys! I'm back from Florida and I'll be updating you with a recap of my time there.

I just noticed that my blog links to my Facebook photo albums have expired, which is something new Facebook has decided to do. Joy. I will be updating those soon and maybe starting a Flickr account so you can view all photos in one stop.

Here's my Flickr account if you want to keep up. I will be posting session photo sets here.

Florida Adventure

If I'm being honest, I'm not quite ready for my 5:55 am flight tomorrow morning for Florida... I still have a lot of last-minute things to get together before I head out for my mini-vacation/commercial photo shoot. It's been a pretty interesting week and I've learned a lot about having flexibility with the unexpected.

Plans were changed for the upcoming Florida shoot... Lisa, Becca, and I are going to use Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as our free days, which will involve a visit to Universal Studios, the beach, and some fabulous outlet shopping.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will be our work days shooting CAS's new product line. Ordering rental studio lighting has been quite the experience...

Here are some things I've learned this week:
* Procrastination is my enemy.
* Go with your gut when you think that people are being rude to you. They are. And they don't deserve your business.
* It's good to know people who know things.
* Stay calm when things don't go as planned. Something will come along that works just as well.
* With a little prayer and wisdom, it will all come together in the end. :)

Random thoughts:
* I hate to pack. I hate it with a passion. I will procrastinate, and I will ultimately forget something.
* I love my house. Especially my sweet new decorative shelf for my office. I'll post pix soon.
* I need a vacation.
* Roller coasters are calling out my name. I am so ready.
* I'm excited to fly again. Weird, I know. The window seat is my favorite.
* Made my last payment on my living room furniture. It's officially mine. woot.
* Thank God for good friends!

Have a wonderful Easter weekend! And remember what it's all about...

River Bluff Retreat 09

My church, River Bluff Fellowship, has gone to Branson for the past few years for an annual retreat. Here are some pix I took from this year's get-together.

See more pix here.


Guess what? The sun is out! I feel refreshed! Thank you, God! (However, I'm just going to try to ignore the fact that it's supposed to be yucky outside again tomorrow...)

I had a great Friday and Saturday in Branson on our church retreat. I'm excited about some photo projects coming up soon. I just bought a really cool big decorative Todd Oldham bookshelf for my home office that I found at a flea market. This is all really random. I'll quit now.

Blah. That's how I feel. I haven't been motiviated.. to. do. ANYTHING. And I blame it primarily on the yucky, dreary, get-your-hopes-up-nice-weather-one-day-then-it-snows-the-next-day type of weather we've been having recently.

Give me some sun.

Pretty Please. With sugar on top.
