Wednesday: Wisdom

March 22, 2011

First, I want to thank you for all the comments about the “big news” on my last post and also those on Facebook or in person!  We are definitely excited!

This week I wanted to post some photographers that I find inspiring.  We all can learn so much from each other and for the most part…everyone is willing to share what the know (the do’s, don’ts, should’ves and want to’s).  It’s awesome to see how the photographer community helps each out by writing stuff on their blog or for me….just their beautiful photographs that make me want to get out and shoot.  I have to admit I have a lot of blogs/photographers that I love and hope to aspire to accomplish the beauty they obtain in photographs but I decided to just highlight a few.

The first one is Elizabeth Messina of Kiss the Groom.  Oh her images our so dreamy and evoke so much emotion.  This video is from a shoot she did and a videographer was there as well.

The Bride & Bloom :: Spring 2011 Shoot from bliss* productions on Vimeo.

here are some more of her images…

The next one up is Jose Villa.  His images are beautiful and are done with FILM!!  Film also seems to be making a come back and has made me want to get out my SLR 35mm and shoot black and white film.  I love the moments he captures and the color of his images are wonderful.

Jasmine Star provides a lot of information for photographers and also is wonderful at what she does.  Here are some of her videos that she created with questions from other blogstalkers.

Wednesday What’s Up!!!

March 9, 2011

Oh I’ve got some goodies to share! First, I am sooooo extremely excited that I will be second-shooting weddings with Rachel from Millie Holloman Photography this year!!!  That also means I will not be taking on any of my own weddings because I will be busy shooting with Rachel.  I had the opportunity to shoot for them last July and absolutely loved it.  Here’s the post from that wedding on their blog and I’m going to post some too but all the credit goes to the lovely and amazing Millie Holloman Photography!!!

Second, if you are still reading……………..

This is what I presented to my Justin a few months ago and it was shocker.  I thought my idea was pretty clever, easy, and didn’t cost a thing.  Our Eggo’s actually had freezer burn but it’s not like Justin or I were going to actually eat it so it worked.  This will make it our second child.  If you didn’t already know Ruca, our sweet little dog, is our first child and will have quite the awakening when she won’t be getting all the attention.  We are excited and nervous since we will be first time parents and I work while Justin goes to pharmacy school but people do it and survive.   The due date for this little being inside me is 9/22/2011.  Luckily I’ve had no morning sickness just a few episodes when I’m laying in bed at night.  I’ve just been more tired which is why my blog has been a little neglected.  I’m just not looking forward to NC hot and humid summer while being in the last trimester.  Ugh!!!  We are blessed everything is going so wonderfully so far.  That’s all my news for today!  Enjoy your week!
