True Colors Are Beautiful

It's been a few days since I blogged last. Things have been very busy (excuses, excuses) since I'm finishing up with editing work in preparation for my trip to Utah next week. I am so excited! I am flying out to Park City to meet up with some of my college friends to celebrate our college reunion. Apparently we're eschewing the official reunion, which is fine with me since it's not actually my year. I wanted to make sure I got as much editing done as I could so my clients wouldn't be wondering where their photos were. Here are some other exciting things that have happened since I stopped teaching:

1) I went to see Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Tour (hence the post name). It was awesome! Regina Spektor and the B-52s performed. Rosie O'Donnell did stand-up. Carson Kressley emceed the show. It was awesome. The tour is sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, which this year is focused on getting everyone to VOTE. You know, since it happens to be a rather important voting year. The concert was just amazing. I am so happy to have finally seen Cyndi Lauper live. She was as good as I had hoped she would be. Next concert: Steely Dan!

2) I set aside the time to go see "Sex & The City" in the theater and was not disappointed. I didn't have huge expectations, but the movie was pretty good. It made me laugh. It made my cry. Multiple times. And that made me angry. I would categorize myself as an easy mark when it comes to crying at the movies, but sometimes I try to resist the emotional manipulation. I was no match for these ladies! Regardless of what you think of the show, the characters, or the movie, at its heart, "Sex & The City" is about friendship and I was glad to see that was upheld in the movie. There's my nutshell review.

3) This week I welcomed a new member of my family... the Nikon D300! I am sooo excited! It's a nice little upgrade and I will be transitioning it into my primary camera. Tomorrow I'm shooting a wedding, so I'm going to start experimenting with it then. It's going to be interesting trying to carry two cameras around my neck! Who needs the gym? Well, I do, but we'll see how this goes first.

4) The same day I got my new camera, my sample wedding album also came in the mail. I am so pleased with it and I know my clients will like having this option. It's a beauty!

Okay, so this post is long and it's about to get longer. I shot this awesome family last weekend and I love their photos. I've got a bunch to post, so bear with me!

Meet the family! This photo made me laugh, so I wanted to include it.

I had so much fun playing with these kids! They were so friendly and chatty, it totally made my job easy!
