lovely photo Wednesday + Frustration

Link up with the most amazing God loving young lady you will ever find. Hannah's blog aspire is great, check it out please!

Lovely Photo - Wordless or Not-So-Wordless Wednesday at Aspire
The girl loves a twirly slide and her mama loves that smile! 

On to the frustration part, I cannot figure out how to get my new beautiful watermark on my pictures in photoshop CS5. Well actually all of CS5 is frustrating me, I have never had such a hard time getting anything accomplished in my life, I guess I should stick with picassa and picnik!

Miscellany Monday- Photography Edition

Link up and share your randomness with everyone!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} I just finished up the most amazing wedding photography workshop yesterday. CreativeLive hosted a 5 day workshop with the uber fabulous Jasmine*  and to top it off it was FREE. Check out her website, I have never seen a more beautiful site, I spent way to much time looking at it! Jasmine * was completely transparent about every aspect of her business from branding your company to what settings and lenses to use!
You can purchase the video from all 5 days for $150 and believe me it is more than worth it. She has inspired me so much I cannot wait to put everything that I have learned to work!
{I need to say a special thank you to my husband for dealing with me being glued to the computer for the past five days, thanks hun!}
{Two} Here is a sneak of a post I hope to get done later today. I shot these sweet siblings a couple of weeks ago in downtown Rocky Mount.
I love the symmetry of the one below.

This is in front of an old warehouse I had been dying to shoot in front of forever.

{three} Notice my new logo? After searching and searching for one I found this one on Etsy designed by Natasha. I will premiere {ha} the watermark in the next post.
{four} so part of the workshop was to pick 3 words that describe your photography/business. After changing them a million times I have decided on vibrant, fun, & fresh.
{five} The past  two months I have been studying every aspect of photography and really trying to just take it all in and practice, practice, and practice some more. I felt like things were happening fast and I needed to take a step back and really find myself in my photography. Yes, I know it sounds super cheesy!  Their will be alot of new photos and a few surprises in the future and I could not be more excited.

That's all the randomness I have for today, well I guess it wasn't too random it was all about the same thing, oh well!

I Heart Faces- Got to wear shades

I will be back tomorrow with another post, but I decided to enter this picture a picture for this weeks challenge at
This is my husband and baby big girl at a local news studio in front of a water fountain, so there is a bit of mist showing in the picture. We had such a great day that day and seeing this picture takes me back to that very moment!
Is this the winning photo, no probably not, BUT, does is make me smile when I see it, yes for sure!
