Hanging My Shingle on the World ..

“The idea gradually dawned on me,” he later said, “that what we were doing was not merely making dry plates, but that we were starting out to make photography an everyday affair.” ……. “to make the camera as convenient as the pencil.” – George Eastman

So , I hope that every day , I find something amazing in the little things ! Today , my aunt , also business advisor , designer of such things like my contract , etc – made for me a self -inking rubber stamp with my A E Photography logo on it – I just about squealed and jumped up and down ! Ok , so it may be small to some , however , I am beginning to see all of these things with my logo on it . Letter headers, decals to go on car windows  that several members of my family have so  awesomly applied to their car windows,  rubber stamps, labels that have been designed to put on my discs- I now have a hanging file cabinet  – me , having organization tools – anyone who knows me knows that is pretty big . I have officially
“hung my shingle” ,  – its pretty big to me  – I only pray I never forget why  I do this – its to step in-cog-neeto, freezing your memories , hopefully capturing raw , human emotion that would otherwise be possbily held back , hidden , or seized in the middle of if they knew someone was watching –  Thank you , George Eastman , founder of Kodak  , for  thinking just regular folk had a chance at the camera- thanks alot , doll .

Summer time calls for many pictures!

Summer time calls for many pictures!.

Summer time calls for many pictures!

In the midst of the winter,I found there was , within me , sn invincible summer –

Summer time is def. a favorite around here – we sleep in a lot , eat alot of bad foods , laugh ALOT more than during the hectic web of school time . There is no homework to get through , no early bed times , no alarm clocks (well there is coming from Jeromie’s side of the bed ) , lots and lots of mini road trips to anywhere we can swim – swimming is a MUST- its just kind of carefree – I have the occassional photoshoot ,  but always fun – This is my favorite time to get candid shots of the boys – their whole demenor changes – maybe  its partly mine as well because Im not rushing around , trying to get things done before the boys get home , or maybe the freedom of not having to really be on  a schedule so much just … frees you –  I let the boys skip a few showers, stay up as late as they can stand it , – and just be who they are – crazy little boys –  here are some straight out of the camera images from the start of our summer so far :)
