Seriously, I’ve been terrible at keeping up with my blog lately. No doubt, summers in Florida are the “down” times for shooting because it is so hot, no one wants to do their session in this 96 degree weather, however, I’ve been shooting and taking some time off to enjoy other creative outlets. Here are a few things that have been going on with me.
I recently shot a gorgeous engagement session with my October 12th couple. I’m so pleased with the way the photos turned out. I can’t wait to blog them! Ali and Marielle are so sweet, gorgeous, and fun. More to come on their session soon!
I also had the opportunity to photograph one of our local comedians, Jeff Zenisek, during a live performance at the Comedy Zone. If you’ve never checked him out, you definitely should. I like that his humor is pretty clean (comparatively) and that he doesn’t just jump from joke to joke. If you have a chance to see him perform, you should definitely jump on it. You won’t be disappointed.
One of my closest friends was in town for almost 2 months. I mentioned in an earlier post that Andre, her sweet Chinese Sharpei, had cancer. Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to her a couple of weeks ago. That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to be a part of. I captured her final moments of love with Monica, but they’re too painful to share right now. So instead, I’ll share this sweet photo of their shoot from December 2012.
Speaking of sad moments with dogs… Riley’s one year death anniversary came to pass. I miss that boy every single day. Here’s a photo from his 6th birthday, which was his last.
Anyway, on to happier things. My great friend Jenn Hopkins of Jenn Hopkins Photography is having a baby! I had the privilege of photographing her maternity session. It was such an honor! Here’s one of my favs. Photographed by me, edited by her.
I’ve been working on sewing a lot. I love to sew for family and friends. I’ve been trying to stock my Etsy store. Here are some items I have for sale.
I’ve also been working on my life and living blog. I did a redesign of it and renamed it to Studio J from According To Jen. I really love it. It’s way more “me” now. Plus, it involves my sweet, sweet dog Jayda and she is my baby. I guess that’s about it. I have family coming in town over the next few weeks so I may continue to be MIA for awhile, but I’ve missed you all and can’t wait to show you more of what I’ve been photographing. XOXO
