i am a blessed kid this week! after celebrating the end of classes annd two years together (whoa), dru gave me flowers on friday and I haven’t stopped staring at them since. seriously though, they’ve opened so pretty! i couldn’t help but grab my camera and take a few shots of them today.
and in thinking about it, i actually don’t remember the last time i took my camera out for myself! so nice.
as a chronic, i cannot get out of bed pre 9:00, no matter how many alarms i set, unless its for something super interesting, therefore not for class, in most cases, even though i wake up and feel reallyreally bad it won’t ever change, again unless its for work or something, today is epic.
today is the last monday morning in which i can say on my way out the door “i have class.” realizing this is just as much a present as the rest of it.
who wouldn’t want to start off a sunday morning with this little face?
seriously. suz (the beautiful momma pictured above!) is a good friend of mine & dru’s, and when she asked us to get together for a shoot with her little one i was in.
if i’m being honest, baby sessions are my favorite. who isn’t going to love a photo of a baby? and even in the madness i find those sessions really calming. is that weird? maybe its the oldest sister in me, or the old swim coach. i mean, hello… kiddy classes were the bomb. who else is going to say to me in awe, “wow, teacher! you swim like a dolphin… who swims like… like a mermaid!” now, while in reality that would probably look pretty messed up i still take it as a large compliment coming from a very shy three year old, and i laughed after that lesson for days. (thanks again grant!) seriously though, i say pass those sessions on.
on that note, the list of things to do/shoot when classes finally clues up is becoming endless. i love it.
so, after having pinned the above images AGES ago and drooling over this home office space i’ve came back to them a few times and wondered where the mother they came from. if i could have an ideal editing set up, that’s exactly what it would look like.
anyway, after some serious clicking around today i finally managed to locate the original poster and owner of this kick-ass space on her blog here. her name is alaina kaczmarski, and good lord does she know how to do a black accent wall! do you agree? thoughts? change is such a good thing, and its time for me to freshen up my own editing space.
on the same note, if you haven’t heard of her yet (even though you have, because her style is amazing) i’d recommend you click over to jamie delaine‘s new blog and website. she’s been a favorite artist of mine for a while now and i’m a huge fan of the new redesign she’s just completed for this year. it’s simple and young, yet still classy. love it!
my grad photo time had to come too, and luckily it was painless! dru was awesome enough to shoot it for me yesterday and it ended up turning out to be quite a sunday.
first i had breakfast cooked for me, then we packed up to spend the day in gros morne for a photo drive, then i was proud of myself for remembering to bring rubber boots considering it was raining, then i realized said rubber boots were actually two different sizes but its no big deal because my right foot just enjoyed the dry extra room. then we drove home to cooked dinner and then thoroughly enjoyed a new episode of the walking dead to which i passed out cold before it ended. did i just admit that? sorry darryl. i’ll drool over you later this week, promise!
apart from some tire bustage, yesterday was seriously the best though. and as someone who would rather remove limbs than have her photo taken, i kind of maybe sort of love this photo (just a liiiiiiittle bit) because while i doubt many people will notice, it was taken as far from school as possible ; ) and on such a great day!
i love getting the chance to stay home, sit down, and start ticking things off to do lists. i’m already a few coffees and teas deep, and after having mailed the jamaica proofs yesterday (wooo! largest editing job to date for sure) i have a few family sessions left to clear up and then nothing but school to focus on.
i think february is going to fly faster than january too. we’re already about a week in, and after logging a hard week next week we have mid-term break – so, that means if i burrow my head under a blanket for a few days i might actually get to enjoy break and come back ready for march. YES.
