I know it has been a looong time since I have posted... I have been soo busy! We went out of town to see my brother and sister in law last weekend. So I have been packing and unpacking, and this weekend we are headed to Olympia WA for a cousin and a really good friend's wedding. :) So, today I will be packing again.
I'll be taking they're wedding pictures. I have tried to prepare myself as well as possible for this wedding, but I still feel a little un-prepared. I know I have some excellent photographers who drop by my blog, and if you could spare ANY tips at all I am always open for advice!
The bride is absolutely beautiful, and her and the groom make the sweetest, cutest couple so I really cant go wrong there. :) She has been super organized and sent me her list of pictures months ago. We are going to make it to the rehearsal so I can get a feel for how the wedding will go, and hopefully I can scout out some great locations! It is in Olympia (the rainy part of Washington) so it will undoubtedly be raining that day (which really stinks) but I am going to try and bring some umbrellas for a couple cute pictures. Any creative ideas for working with the rain? Maybe I should have her bring a cute bright pair of rain boots? We will be taking pictures after the reception, before the pair leaves for their honeymoon... so she wouldnt be as concerned about her dress afterwards.
whew... so yeah thats what I am thinking about lately. Doing quite a bit of online research. fun fun!
In vol25 news, the Valentines cards have been a huge hit! I had a lady from out of the states ask me if it were possible to offer them in a pdf form. I told her that was a great idea. So, I listed them in the shop. For 4.50 you can print as many as you want. :) I recommend using the best of photo quality setting on your printer, and using #80 lb cardstock, preferrably linen textured. Regular white cardstock would work fine as well. :) So, if you have adobe reader installed... you should be just fine with the printing process.
note: I will be making the listing inactive while away, since I will not be able to e-mail the file quickly during that time. It will be back up on sunday though! :)
Oh.. and here is a couple cute pictures I took yesterday. My parents are almost finished with they're house and they had they're first bbq out there yesterday. Us girls met the guys at the house and they took a 2 hour lunch break. The little girls had a blast running around the house. Noah (my sisters boy) and Journey shared a play pen for the first time. It was really cute watching them take each others toys. :) They are only 10 days apart, so we'll see how well they get along in the future!
Here are some pictures of mom and dads house.
Anyhow, I have a list of things to do. It is soo much harder packing for two girls then it was one. :) Last weekend I remembered everything for the kids, but left stuff of my own behind! :) Which of course... led to a great shopping opportunity... ;)
If I cant post again before we leave... have a great weekend!
