What in the world?!?!?!?!
The Getty Images team has noticed your work on Flickr, and is pleased to offer you an invitation to enroll with them. They have selected 5 of your photos for possible inclusion in the program.
This is part of an email I received today, from GETTY IMAGES…it totally rocked my world!!!!!!
The program they are talking about is this one. Check it out! Woot!
That’s is all I can really say at this point…I am in processes of reading through contracts and crazy stuff that I never though I’d have to read…but I’ll let you know more as it comes!
I guess it pays to be a Flickr member! Yipee!

So this just goes to show you guys what a truly lame blogger I am…
About a month ago a fellow photographer (and a personal inspiration to me) Leaca interviewed me for her photography blog. She does a really fantastic interview series called “7 Questions” and I was truly thrilled that she want to do one on me! You can go over there to check it out…hey late is better than never, right? And make sure you read some of the other interviews that she’s done, too…very cool stuff.
One last thing…I somehow managed to delete all my sidebar links to my favorite sites, which is just as well since I hadn’t updated it since I started this blog. I found a bunch of really inspiring sites and it is my personal goal this week to get it back up and running again! Who knew blogging had this much administration stuff to worry about?

Remember this self portrait?
Well a couple of weeks ago one of my favorite photography websites, Digital Photography School, put out a call for submissions for their “What would you do game” (a game for people to practise their photo editing skills)…and on a whim I submitted my straight out of the camera version of the shot above. Head on over there to check out some of the crazy edits people came up with…and to see my really really unedited shot (eeew). Some of them really made me laugh…
Me: What are your fingers for?
Me: What are your ears for?
Me: What is your mouth for?
Me: What are your toes for?
Me: What are your eyes for?
Me: What are your cheeks for?
Me: What is your Mommy for?
Me: What is your Daddy for?
Well folks I guess that clarifies things a bit!
Oh and WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT!!!!!! HOORAY FOR CHANGE!!!
I had my second newborn shoot this morning…I have to say I’m lovin’ it! Baby Farrow is 3 weeks old and just the sweetest little thing ever…and check out her hair!! She was as alert as could be but I managed to get her to sleep for some “traditional” newborn pics.
Thanks Teri and Matt for letting me hang out with you this morning! You are truly blessed to have such a precious little girl. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

Every time I review a set of photos, my favorites always end up being the ones that are totally unscripted – happy and spontaneous. Here are a few more from the session I did yesterday…a few of the outtakes that I think really capture the Perry family’s soul.
Speaking of soul (sole) heehee…for a few minutes while getting some brother and sister shots…this cute little foot kept popping into the frame…hmmm, I wonder who it could have been? What a funny little guy!

I had my very first newborn photoshoot today! An old friend and former co-worker of mine had their second child, Darla, a couple of months ago and she let me come over and try out my photo skills on her and her family. It was a blast and they were the perfect family for a newbie like me. They have a beautiful bay window in their living room so the lighting was incredible…and even though I’ve read that the best time to take newborn photos is within the first week of birth, Darla stayed asleep and happy pretty much the entire time.
Thank you Peery family!!! I hope you enjoy the preview of some of the photos I was able to process this afternoon!

…look at that face!!! Have I mentioned I love my new camera? And of course my delicious little sweet cheeks. Coen was amazingly angelic today…even though he didn’t get more than 10 minutes of a nap. We had to do a HUGE grocery run and although he is usually pretty good at the store, he was perfect today. It kind of knocked my socks off. I’m so looking forward to year three! 😉
