a list of random thoughts and happy things


Loki Loki3 Thor Thor2

  • I finally got some good portraits of Loki, thanks to a spur-of-the-moment practice run with my new lighting setup. I’m discovering a newfound love of flash photography.
  • These pictures of Thor make me think of summertime and long-shadowed afternoons with light pouring in from all sides. :)
  • I finished chapter seven in the second draft of my book last week! That was a big hump to get over because it was the first chapter of Part Two, and somehow it’s been hard for me to get into the groove of Part Two after immersing myself so thoroughly into Part One. It’s almost like diving into a whole new book.
  • I’m having so much fun with Jamberry. Every single day it stretches me out of my comfort zone and while I hate that, I also love it. And I love the product so I have no complaints. :)
  • Some lovely ladies came over to my house yesterday and it was so good to hang out with friends and cultivate relationships. I am guilty of getting so caught up in my own life that I forget that there are other people I need to be investing in. Goal: do more fun one-on-one or small-group activities with the girls I know around here. They’re amazing people and I need to get to know them!
  • I have twooooo weddings coming up that I get to photograph! Some people say “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride”; I say “Always a photographer, never a bridesmaid!” But I wouldn’t have it any other way. :)
  • This week I’m roadtripping across the state to see some very favorite people. AND doing a photo shoot of their brand-new baby. You should probably be jealous.
  • I’ve been sick for at least 5 weeks total since the beginning of 2015 (that’s 4 different and very long-lasting sicknesses), which is almost as bad as my junior year in high school. :( I’ve been to doctors and naturopaths and I eat well and I take supplements and I exercise whenever I’m not running a fever, but nothing has been helping and I just don’t understand it.
  • My last day of work at the gym where I coach will be May 27, and I’m excited to not be working evenings anymore, but also sad because oddly I will miss teaching and miss my students. It’ll probably be good for my health to be away from the world of germs I know I come in contact with there though.
  • My handstands are getting SO MUCH BETTER! I’m around halfway to my goal of 10 seconds. :)
  • I’ve been designing like crazy the last couple weeks. Jamberry allows for so much creativity and I love it! I’m also designing some awesome marketing materials for my photography business. :) I could do that all day.
  • This list is getting really long and I’m off to eat some lunch before I try to do Jillian’s Killer Body workout for the first time since before my most recent sickness. Ah, muscle regression. So much fun.

I hope you’re all having a delightful April thus far!
