I've done quite a few photo jobs lately, and boy am I ever blessed with gorgeous people to photograph. Wanna see a few?
Right? They make my job easy. :-) This weekend I have an amazing job coming up. I'm going to be doing Santa pictures at the Zoo (ZooLights!!) for a very special holiday party. Affinity Family Care is another amazing agency in my area. They help parents of disabled children find the services they need. This party? It's for the kids. And oh boy, we've got 445 people RSVP'd for this thing. Too bad you can't have two Santas at the same party! I'm afraid some people aren't going to get a picture, but my little helper elf (Ryan) will be moving people through quickly, so we'll do our best. It's gonna be a zoo though. Ha! A zoo!
I've started my holiday shopping, but I'm floundering a bit this year. With the economy, and my mom passing away, it's just hard to know how to celebrate. Big celebration to over-compensate? No celebration at all? I'm sure we'll figure it out, but it's getting harder, if anything, to put on a brave face.
Ok, ok, really quick: I am thankful for my husband (is it OK if I brag that he's pretty darn close to perfect?), my brother (one of my bestest friends!), my Florida relatives, my girlfriends, my mom's friends (who feel the need to adopt us, and heck if I'm going to say 'no' to free food!), my job, my pups, my life... I have a really good life, and so much to be thankful for. Guess I'll try a little harder to remember that when all this other stuff happens.
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
