I have totally neglected my website as of late and I feel terrible! I have good reason, though:
I’m a nanny! This is my first week caring for the cute kiddos, so I’ve been trying to fall into a routine. I get to hang out with a toddler all day and read Frozen books, swing, color and decipher babble. 😉
I’m also a fresh part of a really cool new app called KKTalkee, which helps people in China learn better English through live video broadcasting. Basically, I deliver a bunch of content and then answer any questions and encourage them to speak. I’m really loving this because those who know me well know I’m a total stickler for grammar and spelling, and I’m also following in my grandma’s teaching footsteps – just in a modern way.
It’s been a week of firsts! Glad to have the nerves shaken off and ready to grind 🙂
When Moo.com has a sale, I always take advantage. It seems like these sales happen right as I’m running out of business cards – win! Anyways, I was taking advantage of this sale last night, which meant perusing my photo catalog to pick out my favorite photos from the last few months, so I can print them onto my new set of business cards. It sounds silly but I hardly ever look back at my work, so going through all of these photos totally brought back memories. And made me homesick.
In no particular order, here are a few of my favorites from last fall:
I think I’ll look back through my work more often. This was just what I needed to cure my homesickness ❤ I can’t wait to start networking here so I can get some more amazing clients!
“Bubbly” doesn’t begin to describe this cutie – she’s positively overflowing with personality. I can’t get over how great her senior portraits look. She made my job pret-ty easy – posing herself and never ran out of smiles! Here are a few more of my favorites 🙂
This evening, I’ll be photographing Kadyn and the rest of her Varsity team for team pictures. Get ready for another burst of adorable-ness!
I can’t believe this kid is a senior already! It seems like he was just a cute little kid trying to yell “shotgun” before me to get the privilege of riding up front. Wasn’t it just yesterday he was playing basketball on a lowered hoop? Now he’s 6’4″ and towering over his “big” sister.
I see flashes of my “little” brother when he smiles.
That is, if you can get him to stop smoldering.
I can’t get over how grown up he looks – this is a totally different kid than the one I saw before I moved to Kansas!
Now he’s becoming the kind of man who takes the world by storm and won’t stop until he achieves his dreams.
I’m proud to call this handsome, intelligent, creative young man my brother! I can’t wait to see where life takes you, buddy ❤
On this day last year, volleyball season had just started in Kansas and I was coaching at the local high school. One of my girls, Courtney, asked me to take her senior photos so we spent the afternoon slurping on slushes from Sonic and raving about how photogenic she is.
She made my job pretty damn easy.
And of course we made it to the school for volleyball photos!
We ended up snapping one of my most favorite photos of all time:
I miss my JCHS girls so much! I’ll be cheering all of you on from here. ❤
