out takes

out takes from today and yesterday's shoots...more about it when details can be shared. and, in case you were wondering...summer has arrived with a vengence in montgomery. afternoon temperatures were in the mid-90s as i was shooting outside. i have to remember to order my nd filters pronto!

and, the worry that i was worrying - i got a bit of good news today. approximately ten days ago, a mass popped up on my 18 month old niece's sternum. given my family's history, of course we all thought the worse. after some preliminary tests, we're told it's not cancerous. it is fiberous and there will be more testing to see what exactly is going on. i will keep you all updated. thank you all so much for positive thoughts, prayers and uplifting e-mails/telephone calls.

hope your day was filled with beautiful things and happy thoughts.

  8. Beautiful photographs, with such a summer feel to them. Seems like a lovely assignment. Our weather here has been punky all spring, rainy, humid, overcast ... More rain today! But I guess it's good writing weather.

  14. I can't wait to catch up on your posts! These photos are amazing. And did I read the words "photo shoot"? You've got mad skill so I can't say I'm surprised but I am happy to hear it! I'm now going to track back and see what I've missed these past weeks...

    And by the way, your photo has found the perfect home on my kitchen wall (the kitchen is one of the only sane rooms in the house as of yet...). I'm loving it. So thank you, thank you, thank you once again!
