I glanced at my calendar today only to realize my brother & sister-in-law's 1st wedding anniversary is coming up on April 25. (Happy Anniversary to them, by the way!!) Then, my thoughts immediately went to this sorely neglected blog site and I remembered my last post of photos was from my brother's wedding A YEAR AGO. Talk about a major blog FAIL!
Once 'busy season' hit last year, I got caught up in the excitement and ease of sharing my work on a Facebook fan page and left this blog in the dust. What can I say, I'm a sucker for all those comments and "likes" that you all leave :-) Its fun to see which photos catch one person's eye over another and admittedly...I like spending my time editing images to share with you rather than a long drawn out explanation of what you can clearly see was a fun or interesting photo shoot! After all, a picture is worth a thousand words (and sometimes more)!
So as I prepare to make some long overdue changes and updates to my portfolio site and this blog, I vow to blog more often than a year at a time--even if they are short on words and long on images. I have so many exciting adventures in store for this summer!
To bring you up to speed for the sake of future blog posts, I would like to mention a couple exciting personal things that happened this past year!
My niece Greta was born in August and to say the least -- I can't get enough of her!
Here is a photo I took on Monday. Those big blue eyes just melt my heart!! Dont be surprised if more photos of her pop up on the blog from time to time.
And last but not least, this blog update wouldn't be complete without mentioning two little words: wedding planning! Many of you who I've worked with have met my fiancé John, as he assists with photo shoots and weddings whenever possible. We've formed quite a team, and words can't express how grateful I am to have him in my life. We can't wait for our June 25, 2011 garden wedding in Iowa -- and no, we are NOT photographing our own wedding. :-)
We just got back from shooting an amazing destination wedding in Negril, Jamaica, so I will leave you today with a teaser. (See what I mean about those thousand words!)
