Ah, the joys of hunting...

You cant hear him too well, but he says "beth, you made me miss"
uuuuummmmmm no sir, i didnt
but, im not one to talk, since i couldnt hit the broad side of the barn today. I can usually beat the whole family at shooting clays, but for some reason today, my game was completely off. I mean, I couldn't hit a single thing!


I'm allllllllllmost caught up on my homework...

and then, it's PICTURE TIME!!!!

So you all should be getting your CD's HOPEFULLY within the next 14 days

Whew, just had to throw that out there. Im so excited to get it and start shooting with it. Okay, this sounds terrible, but I haven’t even got to really play with it yet. I had a senior session and shot with it, but I haven’t really got to play with HD video and my crazy ISO speeds.
With me getting my new camera, comes the overwhelming feeling and knowledge of how truly blessed and lucky I am to be able to even have this creative outlet. I love love LOVE taking pictures. And I truly love all my clients, and I am so honored to have them come into my life. I have had some really great times getting to know each and every one of them. It’s because of them that I can continue on doing what I really love and what makes me so joyful. Let me tell ya, there are no words to describe how I feel behind the lens. Peace. That’s all I can think of. I’m at peace with everything, and it is an amazing feeling. That’s not to say that there are the occasional butterflies when Im shooting a wedding and freaking out over how to get across the room full of people in about 4 seconds to get the shot I want. Weddings are a whole different ball game though, and they need a post all to themselves.

So, I didn’t want my clients to think that I’m holding their pictures for ransom and wanted to give you guys a heads up on what’s going on right now. Usually my turn around for getting your CDs to you is really quick, usually within 7 days of your shoot. But right now, wow. I’m so backed up on school and editing, it’s ridiculous! I’ll go do a shoot, then come home and do homework. I’ll upload the pictures from the session, then I get behind on my homework. I take some time to catch up on my homework, and I get behind on editing. Then I edit, then homework…you get the picture. It’s a vicious cycle really.
But school is almost over! YAY!!!!! And I’m seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! YAY!!! And I’m getting caught up on my homework! YAY!!! And I’m getting caught up on my editing! YAY!!! And I keep starting each sentence with a preposition! NOOOOOO!!! Haha

Wow, this has turned out to be a long post…

Okay, I am a list maker, and I need to make a list on here for upcoming blog posts.

-Summer plans
-Senior session info
-Overhaul of website & blog
-Music I love
-What I shoot with/and how I shoot (maybe even with a video)
-Session pictures
-Friend post - Shelbie & Cindy

I think that’s all I have for now. So on to the pictures!!!

How I feel right now...


The feeling of free

Absolutely filled with joy

Karson & Lacy

I have to say that this had to be one of my favorite bride & groom couples I have ever shot!
Lacy is my old roomie's sister

Here are a few of my favorites from their special wedding day.
By the way, their wedding location, TO DIE FOR!!!

Lacy & Karson



Does the texture on this one look okay?

And this is the bride's absolutely fabulous sister, as well as my old roomie from college

My old roommate Britney!!

I wanted more of a "romantic-ish" feel to this one...

Playing around with different processing...

And my song for the day...
