A month

BUSY...I've, we've been busy. KHP did the Washington City Halloween trunk or treat over the weekend. We had planned on a family stopping by, chatting, taking their picture, and burning them a disc. We were a little under prepared when there was a line forming and Katie was at the laptop trying to take my pics, put them on a template and burn discs for everyone, one after another. No as some of you know...we changed the plan to emailing these pics out, which we should be getting to in the next couple days. Not sure why we didn't do that in the first place. We've got 60 or so families to send pictures to. OH so if you weren't there, parents brought their kids by, I took a pic of them in their costume, and Katie burned them a disc with the pic. All free of course, with the idea of booking November and Dec. with Holiday Photos and making contacts. We were a hit I felt, got lots of compliments on the family photos I had enlarged courtsey of Print It, who did an amazing job. really if you have anything to print, go there, best printer I've used and believe me I've used a few and been un too happy. Thanks Nathan...

I'm putting together TEP VI class... So far I've got 9 students interested, but remains to be seen how many book, 5 are for sure. 10 is a good number, we'll shoot for that. I'm thinking right now it's gonna be on the 8th, but may wait until the 15th. I try to do the thing where you email everyone and say what day would you like? and you...and you.. and you... which is a really bad idea because everyone can't all be available on the same let's make a decision....hmmmm can't decide right now.

Oh yes and we had Derek and Dayci's B-Day dinner on...Saturday nite...started cooking and cleaning and whatever at about 12 and that went until they got here at 7. Mostly I was cleaning and doing the dishes, moving furniture, etc. while Katie did all the creative cooking work...I just don't have it in me to just throw stuff in a pot and have it come out delicious...I'm a follow the directions cook, and if I don't have a 8 1/2'' pan I'm screwed. Fun party though, everyone showed up and had a great time. Topped it all off with UHF, which I actually remember being funnier than it was.

Started booking weddings for next year. So far I have interest in Cancun and Colorado Springs, with a couple booked here at home and one up on Alta. I'm excited! What's better than traveling the world doing something you love?! I would like to shoot a wedding in Iceland next year...

That's it. =)


  1. Your Hallowe'en family pics for free idea is great. Hope you get some awesome contacts out of it.

    Book any weddings for April 13-24? Remember, I'm all yours for free during those 2 weeks. My mom and dad are front the money for me and Beent to fly down (in exchange for me painting their new deck in July) so we're coming for sure! I have a letter from my program instructor to send to you outlining the expectations (laid back!). Do you want me to email it?

  2. Yea!! We're really really excited for you guys to come down! We'll plan some cool stuff while you're here. The weddings so far are in July August and September. But it's early. I'm only going to let you shadow me though if you let me shadow you with your pinhole camera.
    email me your letter...
