Dog Days in November

It was a lovely day today, so we packed up and took our dog to Hondo Dog Park to burn off some much needed energy. I took my new lens with me, and played a bit. As it goes with photography, some days are gold, some days are not. Today was not so much... I was in the zone, but the dogs had other things in mind. It was crazy busy, so better luck next time I guess! Here's a few shots to share below. CLICK HERE to see more from the day.

Happy Turkey day everyone. I got a new lens yesterday, and none of my family will pose for me today, maybe later... So I snuck outside and "shot" the dog instead. Hopefully I will have photos from the day a bit later. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday!

New Senior Templates

Hello, it's been a busy week. My apologies for not posting more lately! Last Monday I went to the PSCS3 power tour seminar. For those of you who don't know, I do this every year. This year I spent waaaaaay to much money with the vendors, but so goes growth right? (New lens coming any day now, oh oh oh I cannot stand it!) Just as I was feeling buyers remorse for jumping into a template package, I got to playing with them today. OH YA! Even though I could make these myself, it's the hours of creativity and playing I don't have these days. So, it's so worth it if they sell!

You tell me, all you seniors out there, something you might like? Of course it will take hours to make samples, and post online on the website, and and and, so for now, I am doing up a few, and passing them around just for feedback. I also have to set prices, so this is a super early preview, but I won't say no if someone wants one! I have about 200 of them, here are two.... What do you think?

Daddy came home from business in Taiwan tonight and he brought miss Millie quite an assortment of gifties which included but were not limited to this fan and gorgeous pink silk outfit. She modeled it for me on the back deck. It makes a much stronger portrait cropped in closer to the eyes and fan square I think, but I wanted to show the outfit here to so I left it as I shot it.

(Notice the edition of chopsticks in her hair? That was her idea, I think that is more Japanese, maybe even American.... but I didn't have the heart to tell HER that!)

We are really glad to have Dad back home with us tonight!

So much fun!

I went on a quick excursion outside my home this evening right before we lost all light. As luck would have it, right at the end, we got that great intense red sunset color. Really cool!

The time change makes it a bit tough to shoot where I am in the evenings, but I improvised, and we had so much fun. We really just decided to play and book the "real" senior session next Saturday. I cannot wait! Tonight was a really exciting start I think.

Here's a super sneak peek and as always, say it with me... "more to come!"
