I was sitting up at 3:30am rocking our baby back to sleep. I had nothing to do but think as I rocked and patted and walked and walked and walked... I thought about what a great summer this has been. Ragan and I had a wonderful (even if she doesn't always sleep) baby girl. Ragan had some great baby shoots and I had a great time with my friend and new assistant Mike shooting a wedding for a wonderful, fun couple.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all wine and roses. I didn't get to play hockey at all and I've been so busy I haven't even gotten the motorcycle out of the garage yet. :( I didn't shoot as many shoots as I would've liked to and I'm still not where I want to be with my technique, style, workflow...you name it, I'm striving for better. With fall approaching, I'll be busy working on things like expanding my comfort zone with natural light, perfecting new flash setups and working unique poses.
Although my 'day' job can make scheduling sessions quite difficult, I look forward to more shoots coming our way. I will keep trying to make blog posts. I will be forever grateful to Ragan for making Facebook posts (I personally hate FB and would not be on it at all except for the fact that it's a great way to connect with people so they can see what we do). Keep checking in on us and when you're ready, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and schedule a shoot! In the meantime, fall is coming which, to me, means the World Series and the start of hockey season- can't wait to share with my daughter! What could be better? Peace!
