Admit it! We all can use a vacation from our vacation... right? This past week I have spent my time in New Orleans and cruising to Mexico. But we will dive into that subject a little later. I am working a little backwards at the moment, but its truly nothing new for me. I seem to work very sporadically. Hey, its the artist in me.... well at least thats what I use has my excuse...haha!
Once back from vacation, I took some time to spend with my family and on the very last day I couldn't stand to be away from my camera another second. Sad? right? All of a sudden these visions were popping up in my head, and not just ONE but many different visions and ideas.
My poor husband, he just runs with it. Helps me to complete the visions. Without him, 80% of these visions would never come together.
While I was unable to complete one of the visions on time, its still in the works, we were able to pull off two of them! Actually we just combined them together and it worked perfectly! While the promo session itself ran smoothly, nothing else seemed to run as smooth. This is what I like to call, the joys of a new set-up.
As you can imagine, dragging a three year old out into the hot sun, past a huge playground, only to stick her in a milk bath for photos was not her ideal day of fun. Where as clients just bring their kids for a 20 minute fun session, my children get the pleasure of sitting and waiting for new set ups to well.... set up. AND then becoming my test models. I know its hard life. lol. BUT to my surprise, after a little whining, she actually took it upon herself to start undressing before I even had the water in the barrel and the fabric/flowers all set up! At this point she became anxious and that is all she wanted to do. So naturally my husband and I rushed a little as we were racing against the patiences of a three year old drama queen.
We did it though! Even with a leaky barrel (which is now sealed), clearing out ugly weeds and thorns, and maintaining positive attitudes from the children.... we did it. My vision came to life and I could not be more proud. Seriously my family is AMAZING.
