This & that.

A few random thoughts/a list/rambling (ha!) before life takes over....

1. I love posting on this blog, but unfortunately this week I won't be able to spend much time here.   I told a friend on Facebook this morning that I hate using "We're just so busy" as an excuse, but this week - it's the honest to goodness truth.

2. I am by no means a professional photographer.  Like at all.  And I don't think I ever really want to be one - taking photos for myself is fun and carefree.  Taking photos for others, who are expecting you to produce a level of quality that they have paid for is stressful, and probably not in the cards for me and best left to the professionals.  {Insert my huge love for Shannon Boettcher and her work here!}

With that being said... I do have two friends who are also co-workers who didn't get as many non-traditional poses as they would have liked during their wedding, and since the price was {free} and the only thing they had to lose was their time - we took a stab at a few sunset shots and I have officially found a new place that I love to take pictures at. A BIG thank you to Lindsay for letting me borrow a lens of hers - I am kind of in love with it and the images it let me take.  Thanks L1! 


But taking these re-inforced my thoughts above that I will not be a professional photographer any time soon.....but it did let me grow a little, and that's always a good thing.

3. I'm headed to Wallowa for a meeting tomorrow, and there isn't any Wi-Fi or 3G there.  But there will be great co-workers and hopefully a very productive work session.

4. Clint has had 86 calves in past last ten days (or so) and I finalized over 200 CRP contracts at the office last week.  I think that about sums up why our life is kind of crazy right now. 


5. Just a reminder to myself - and if you'd like one too - kindness matters

  2. I dont know what "professional" photos look like out West, but I'd pay you big dough to come take some Midwest photos to fill up my photo library. :) Unfortunately, my travel budget is a bit small.
