i have been buuuusy!
working on my site, blog, proofs site.... still not close to being up & ready to go but closeR.
i did a shoot for by's boss today. she has more animals than us - 2 horses, a miniature donkey(!!!), two tortoises, seven dogs(!!!), and four cats. she lives out west where you can get lots of land and i'm jealous.
i did just pics of the daddy's favorite, a bulldog named daisy. cuuute. just finished processing a bunch and uploading them. overall i am not all that happy with them, but at the same time it was a good first shoot i think. i had never met a stranger to shoot their dog before. it was like an hour before sunset, so that would've been good, only the skies gloomed up and it was pretty dark. that sucks. and the dog was difficult in a few ways so i didn't get the variety i wanted, but not all dogs are going to be easy so it was good. i am looking forward to practicing more. before i used to dread it.. fear of failure. but now i think i have a LITTLE confidence and it has made me want to try harder... i feel like i am learning a lot and have a lot to learn so have nowhere to go from here but up. and that'll take work and practice!
in other news, amanda got here tonight. poor kid had such a bad time flying by herself for the first time. but she's here and hopefully her luggage will join us tomorrow.
tonight at the pet store i am surprised i didn't get kicked out. i had a bit to kill between shoot & airport so went to the store to get a treat bag. some lady was buying a bunny for her kids. a CUTE ADORABLE TINY baby bunny. of coures the store guy was telling her a bunch of b.s... they were picking out rabbit shampoo when i walked over there, for chrissake! that and he tried to lie and say the bunnies were already spayed. already spayed my ass. but i tried to make the lady understand that you need to spay & neuter rabbits and you can litter train them (she had no idea) and that it makes keeping them way more pleasant, AND that she could make sure she integrates the bunny into their lives rather than just leaving it in the cage. i hope it works out for them. i honestly just worry so much... a life in a cage by yourself is just no life, you know? so i hope that's not what they give that little sweet girl.
okeeeee, time for bed. early for me but i got a niece to wake up for now!
