Number one photography job perk? Working with like-minded people. Margaret is that funny person who has the most hilarious comments about what’s real…she’ll say the things I was thinking in my head – but couldn’t say because uh…I’m trying to run a business. I miss that person inside of me, the person who could make funny comments about inappropriate subject matter. I miss that person so much that I recently had a little breakdown about it….tears and all. I’M NOT FUNNY ANYMORE!!!! I cried to my husband. Ironically, he thought the entire sentiment was very funny. Well, I’m no Carrie Bradshaw, so I’m not going to wax on about the meaning of funny and why I keep that former funny girl all caged up these days. The point of the story is that Margaret and John are funny. You can see it in the pictures. Smiling and laughing and having a good time with life – that’s what they do as a couple. If every relationship could be like their’s …

When this spectacular family asked me to capture their pictures….I agreed on one condition: that they NOT wear matching outfits. Coordinating. Not matching. You see, I can be blunt like that because this family is MY family! Aunt Cat, Uncle Fred and my cousin Brian, his wife Molly and their two cuties who I call my niece and nephew even though I think they’re technically my second cousins? Anyway, we did this shoot at their house in the Arizona Desert.
When I returned from Italy a few weeks back, I hit the ground running with more travel and weddings to shoot. It wasn’t until last week that I finally had the chance to take a look at all the images from my stay in Venice. I mentioned in an earlier post … I went to Italy for two weeks on a house exchange. Having your own apartment in an unfamiliar city, makes you feel like a local – INSTANTLY! So I tried my best to act like one while I was there. I was surprised to find that on the 7th day I actually woke up speaking Italian! Well, of course I’m sure I sounded SO AMERICAN – but I didn’t need to use my American words for all the basics….”Good Afternoon” “How are you”, “how much is that”, “I’ll have one of those”, “Campari Spritz Please”, “Give me a glass of Wine”, “I’ll have one more”, “That is SO GOOD!”, “Thank you so much”, “See you tomorrow”.
