There's our picture on the right. I'm the one with the big over-sized scissors about to slice into my favorite velvet maroon Christmas ribbon (bought on clearance sale in January). Those scissors are surprisingly heavy and sharp and the guy next to me was quick to snatch them from my hand as soon as the photo was snapped (must have been expensive too).
It was fun meeting all the Blue Blazers. They're a friendly and personable group. Thanks for coming out everyone! And there's more cookies where those came from!

I joined the chamber last fall so I technically should have done this at that time, but who has time in between portrait sessions, weddings, and mayhem. My husband has been nagging at me to get it done and he's right. He's the PR person, he should know!
So if you have nothing better to do on a Wednesday afternoon, brave the traffic and the weather and head down to the chamber offices to help me celebrate. I'll give you a Thin Mint!

The session went well as we took advantage of the fog but about halfway through it my flash diffuser popped off my strobe and rolled into the water. The water is a nice 67 degrees year round, but of course we didn't think to bring a swimsuit -- who would. It cost me about $15 so I didn't sweat it, I just thought I'd order another online when I got home. So I got home and started looking for a replacement and realized it's not so easy. They are unavailable at Amazon and nobody is selling them on Ebay. My Google searches are turning up nothing. There is a much more expensive version of the same thing available however. So I'm thinking my $15 loss is no longer a $15 loss, but maybe a $70-$75 loss. For that I think we'll go swimming. I'll be sending my darling hubby -- a.k.a. Lensboy, a.k.a. Holder of My Reflector, a.k.a. Taker of All That I Dish Out For Him -- to the park later this evening, swimsuit and towel in tote, to fetch my diffuser.
Thanks Dear -- You're a keeper!

The photo I'm sharing today is one I took of the outside of the building -- but it's not the one that will go in the yearbook. If you look closely you'll see that this school is actually Mordor Elementary -- not the correct name of our school, but I simply couldn't resist the imagery -- being the big Lord of the Rings fan that I am. I don't know that our sweet principal would appreciate the references to the Dark Lord Sauron's childhood school -- that is if he ever went to elementary school.
Yes, I manage to break away from the real work of organizing children into their grade and class to have a little fun.
I need to get out more.

As you can see, it turned into a free for all. Picture taking is not a serious affair at our house -- and it really shouldn't be -- it should be fun. Flipping through the raw images is pretty entertaining and similar to watching a movie-- funny faces, children pinching and pushing each other, eyes looking everywhere except the camera. I threw together some of my favorites to share here.
I did manage to get some nice images of the children and of all of us together. Take a look if you have the time.
Also a reminder that the first session of my photography class starts up next week. Sign up now before it fills up! Here's the link!
