Today I am thankful for getting to see the girls on the computer tonight. I am really missing them now. I am here all day tomorrow as well and get home late tomorrow night. I just want to squeeze them so badly! They were so cute on the computer and seemed really happy to see me. Lucy said the funniest thing tonight while we were on the computer. Her and Annie were jumping on the blow up mattress and Lucy's Bible was on the bed. All of the sudden, we heard Lucy scream, "EWWWWW!! Annie is drooling on the Bible!!" It was just so random and so funny. Lucy does not like the drool to touch her or her things.

I learned SO much today. I hope that I can really remember it all with my notes because it was awesome!! We worked on Photoshop all day today and then finished the day discussing the business side of things. I could have sat in the classroom and learned about this stuff for so much longer. It was just fascinating and reiterates how there is always so much to learn.

Tomorrow was an optional day if you wanted to attend and it is focusing on the Seniors market, which is something that I definitely hope to get into. I am very excited about it as well.

I will probably just have to wake my babies up when I get home because I don't think I will be able to stop myself. One more night!

I am adding a few shots that I got the chance to edit tonight from our shoot with models yesterday. They aren't professional models, they are clients, but you would have thought that they were professionals. And are their clothes not amazing??? Clothes make such a huge difference and the styling done here is just spectacular. So inspiring to me. Thoughts on the editing?? I used all new techniques and I am loving it.


There were 21 photographers shooting these kids. They were SUCH good sports. This precious little one seriously giggled the entire time. So sweet.

amazing photos and post processing! would you like to share what workshop you are attending?

Erica said...

I like the photos. There seems to be more contrast than what you usually use and I think it really works.

Enjoy your last day--I know I would wake up my baby if I had gone 3 days without!

If you are ever in Northern Florida I would seriosly love to have a session! I love the last picture - the color look great! If you don't mind sharing, what workshop did you attend?

Keep up the great work!

OK, is Monday night, and is all quiet. Both girls are READY to see their Momma, but have been little angels. I'm with Lucy, I have tried to stay on top of the drool, but, oh, it's an endless job. Come on Annie, help us out! Dad has sent 3 pics of the stadium. I think he is in football heaven. In case you'd like to know, Lucy told me tonight that she wants to be a flamingo (again) for Halloween. She said that when you were all home from your trip that you could look for it! She said she knew it was here somewhere, probably in a closet. Then proceeded to tell me how much fun it is to get candy when you trick or treat. This all came about because her 2nd book, after 3 chapters in her Bible, was a Halloween book. Have so loved our conversations! Safe travels. Hugs and kisses to all, LeeLee
