Hello to everyone and WELCOME! So how do you like the new diggs??? I must say it’s quite comfy here. The comment section is much friendlier to use than the previous blog so you can let me know what you think!
I am forever thankful to my “little blog that could” over on blogspot. It saw me through the first year and almost 80 blog posts. Thanks to my loyal blog readers for hanging out over there with me. Sniff Sniff. If you ever feel like a trip down memory lane you can still visit it at www.oneforthewall.blogspot.com
I write this post – empty popcorn bowl beside me – with quite frankly the biggest headache I might have ever had. This blog has taken me the better part of 4 days to put together. I am convinced the technical side of my brain did not develop properly in the womb. I have been in my own personal nightmare trying to figure out how this all works. But things are looking up my friends – I was able to shower today.
It will take me a few weeks to tweak the final colours and links and all that fancy stuff but for now we are home everyone! Year two has begun and it promises to be an eventful year! I am looking forward to sharing all of the exciting developments throughout 2010 both personally and professionally in my life.
Bookings for all of 2010 have started this week. I am taking 2 families per week this year for a number of reasons. I would like to focus more on the details of the shoot with each family and spend more time learning some advanced editing for the images. But most importantly – I am striving for better balance between a blossoming business and my wonderful family. My girls are growing up before my eyes. All it takes is a black marker and a trip to the wooden growth charts every two months to see how fast the time is going.
I have yet to blog the fall families of 2009 but I thought I would kick off the new blog with the last kiddies shoot of 2009. This beautiful family are relatives of the most warm and caring next door neighbour anyone could ever ask for. These are her cousins from Switzerland. I was most surprised and thrilled when they knocked on my door and asked to do a shoot while they were here (we will have to catch dad on the next visit back!). Enjoy the pictures on your walls in Switzerland!
