Seriously I am in shock that it's October. Like what the heck happened to August/September?? I'll tell you what happened... WEDDING SEASON!! I have my last wedding on Saturday and then it's straight into Fall family shoots. Meanwhile I am forehead deep in editing said weddings. So this is where I have been.

8/31 Portland - tiny 13 guest person wedding
9/7 Sunriver (3.5 hour drive) - 8 hour wedding
9/14 Maupin (2.5 hour drive) - 6 hour wedding
9/28 Ridgefield (1 hour drive) - 6 hour wedding
10/5 Dallas (1+ hour drive) - 8 hour wedding

This is from last Saturday's wedding. Yeah... we got 5+ inches of rain in 2 days. Good times.

10,000+ images to cull through, 1700 images to edit and deliver, and 1 mind to try and keep sane. Oh and you know... a 40 hour a week job too. My world is a mess right now and to be honest I am barely hanging on to my sanity. I just announced that I am 6 sessions from being booked for the rest of 2013. That's so crazy.

These are all "good" problems to have, especially with my thoughts of going full time photography in a year or so (MAYBE) but man... I need a freakin break. Good news is that I get a break for my birthday weekend as I am heading to Minneapolis to visit my bestie for a long weekend in a couple weeks. I am not taking my laptop and I hope to be as caught up as possible by then so I can actually relax. Other than 2 newborns in December I am done with sessions on 11/16 as well.

My Sister in law and her family are coming for Thanksgiving and we are all SUPER excited. My nephew is 4 months older than Ozzie and they are both Power Ranger addicts. I bought him a blue ranger costume just like Ozzie's red one and I cannot wait to see those 2 running around the house fighting the "bad guys".

From last year's trip to FL... I cannot believe how much they have both grown.

So anyhow... I am back. I have missed blogging and am gonna try to get back on the horse when I can. What have you all been up to???


  1. Like you said, all good problems to have! Hope you find room to breathe soon! Just keep looking forward to that birthday trip :)
