Class of 2010

I just did my very first senior portraits last week. I was a little nervous, not having worked with a senior before, but I had a great time and I think it's something that I could really get into. Although these probably won't be up on the photo blog for awhile, I was excited to share a little peek:

P.S. When I upload pictures to my blog they look pixel-y and not very sharp. Question #1-do they look this way on your computer screen? And #2- how do I get blogger to upload them at a higher resolution? I know it's possible b/c I see beautiful, sharp images all over the web- help!

Mitchell's first self portrait at age 4. (Love the crazy hair.)

It's Autumn Time

We have been having the most beautiful fall weather here this week. Pretty sunny skies, warm temperatures and beautiful foliage. (This is a very welcome change after the string of cruddy, winter-like weather we were having last week.) Hooray for fall! And Indian corn. And colorful leaves falling all around. Oh, and glittery pumpkins.

Speaking of the flea market, I snagged this great chair a couple of weekends ago. I only paid $4 for it! Not sure if it's an original Eames but I like it's weathered look and coincidentally, it matches my globes perfectly.

Flea Market Style

I spotted this book on a recent trip to Anthropologie and decided to check it out from the library. I highly recommend. Lots of good suggestions for decorating on a flea market budget!

Pictures, Pictures and More Pictures

I have been gradually digging myself out of a massive pile of pictures. I think I am finally all caught up! Check out my photo blog for lots of new images. I'll have a new post every day this week and even a couple into next week as well.

P.S. As a random sidenote, I think those knitted hats for babies are the cutest thing ever. Pretty much the closest thing you can get to a baby having a tail. Adorable.

My little blondie is two years old today. Happy Birthday Spencer!

Still Life

It's family portrait time so I'm up to my ears in images. I'm actually feeling a little buried at the moment. However, among all the image taking and editing madness, I have really been enjoying still life photography. I used to think it was boring but lately it's been a nice change of pace for me. Instead of dancing around to get people to look at the camera I can take my time and really focus on the light and composition of the shot. My Polaroid is especially easy because there is no thinking about exposure settings or retouching in Photoshop. I also love the character of an old grainy image with a little natural vignetting around the edges. Here are a few recent favorites:

Tie-Neck Pullover

I think me and this dressy sweatshirt were meant to be together. (Really. I just used dressy and sweatshirt in the same sentence for crying out loud- it's destiny!) It's casual but chic. I could wear it with my Chuck Taylors for a day at the park or cute flats for a night out with Jared- perfect! Unfortunately this sweatshirt was meant to be with a lot of other people too because it's now sold out. Boo!
