I was actually hired to be a" fun photographer". Not the professional that is in charge of getting all of the important shots. Mike and Angela wanted someone to be in charge of capturing all of their friends and family enjoying the special day with them. I only attended the reception and Angela's only real request was to get a good picture of the cake and the cutting of it. I have to admit that I was happy to have this shot out of the way. I know that there are shadows but the picture is the real deal with no editing done. The reception was held in the lower level of the Mavris, (downtown Indianapolis) so it was DARK. I struggled with lighting the whole night long. I took over 325 pictures and photographed every single person that attended. My photos might not be professional quality but I made sure that I got at least one good shot of everyone. No eyes closed or mouths open shots allowed. Only smiles and happy memories to remind the newlyweds of how precious the day was. I would certainly do it again if given the opportunity. Being the "fun photographer" kind of works for me. Sha
Karen, got us invited to participate in a French Flea Market in Tipton Indiana! It was a whole bunch of work and very hot but such a great time. We gathered and created for months trying to get ready. We put our tent up in Karen's garage two weeks ago (thank you, Marty for giving up your parking spot) and spent hours and hours arranging and rearranging things till we got everything perfect. Once we got everything the way we wanted she took pictures so that we would be able to put it back up exactly the way it was in the garage. Thanks to well planning we were pretty successful. The fact that I got to be with my girlfriend and actually make money was the BEST! Here are a few of my favorite things that I sold.
Still have this sewing machine if anyone is interested!! Would love to find it a new home!
p.s. I want to thank my sweet, sweet, girl-Madi for getting up at 5 am to go help us set up. I am the luckiest Mom to have such an awesome daughter. I also want to thank my Mom and Sister, Kelly for coming. Barni was having technical difficulties (more on that later) so she was MIA.
We spend our summers at baseball fields. We eat and sleep baseball. Both of our boys play and because of their age difference they never ever are in the same place at the same time. Steve takes one and I take the other. If we are lucky Madi will tag along to close ones. We spend a million bucks and sit in the rain or hot hot sun. Usually we come home with nothing but dirty laundry, stinky pitts and rotten feet!! This weekend was different. The Miller Black team won!! It was sweet!! Congratulations number FIVE! Way to go, KID! (baseball lingo) We are so proud of you. The trophy is so cool too!!
Meet Miss. Aniya Kristyne!!! She arrived on Wednesday afternoon weighing in around 6 pounds. She has the softest hair that I have ever seen. I was so excited to take her newborn pictures. Here are just a few before editing.
My Niece and Nephew both graduated this week. They have heard about each other their whole lives but have only seen each other a hand full of times. They are both going to Ball State this fall. She will study architecture and he will study nursing. I hope that they meet there and become friends. Wouldn't that be great? I didn't get to take pictures of Patrick but here are a few of Bailey!! Time sure does fly. It was pretty emotional for me. I cried most of morning. I have enjoyed these kids so much and the thought of them growing up and moving on to college is tough. I was happy and sad all together. I took a census and they are all happy and no sad!!! Ha!
