A month ago, I visited the Vancouver, WA/Portland, OR area and stayed with my best friend. She and I decided to photograph each other trashing wedding dresses on the beach for fun–And OH MY GOD, was it fun. Fun and freezing.
Before my little story…here are the photos I took of Missy. Is my best friend stunning or what? I mean, yowza. Her hubby is a lucky, lucky man.
Ok, so now…I just wanted to show these photos that Missy took of me. I knew the water was going to be freezing…so in order to NOT chicken out, I ran as fast as I could into the ocean. Only–I totally lost my footing and fell face first into that icy water. Not one of my shining moments…but wow does it make a funny slideshow of pictures! (keep in mind these aren’t really edited…they’re pretty much raw images) Let’s all have a quick laugh at my expense…
Here I am running…
Running all graceful-like (look at those pretty, pointed toes)
Looking back at Missy…
Walk it off, Colleen. Just walk it off like nothing happened.
Aaaaand last but not least, I give in and laugh at myself.
I don’t know why this keeps happening–the falling behind on blogging. It’s pathetic. There’s no excuse. I’m a terrible person, etc, etc. That being said, I have (quite literally) 10 shoots or more that I have not blogged yet. And because I’m sort of OCD, the thought of those unblogged, unorganized thoughts makes my insides twist into knots. I mean…there are STORIES. THOUGHTS. IN MY HEAD. THAT HAVE NOT BEEN ORGANIZED. Unorganized thoughts–is there anything worse?? Answer: No, there is not–except maybe for an unorganized office.
Sidebar: My office really needs to be organized.
So, to avoid my head exploding all over my recently mopped floors (yes, I spent a good two hours sweeping, mopping, dusting and vacuuming the furniture. If I had a dustbuster, I would have vacuumed my vacuum) I’m going to just blog some of the more recent shoots I’ve had and then work backwards as I have the time.
In the past month, I’ve had a ton of newborn sessions–there must have been a full moon because ALL my newborn clients who had reserved time slots went into labor within the same 5 day period. Below is one of the earlier born clients, beautiful Miss Madison. Nadine (mommy) originally came to me wanting maternity photos as well, but soon after our initial conversation, Nadine was admitted to the hospital for bedrest until birth. She spent months (literally MONTHS) in her hospital bed until just a few weeks ago when Madison decided she was ready to join us. Welcome to the world, little lady! Your mama is way stronger than I am–one week in a hospital and I would have been going stir crazy! Every year for your birthday, you should get your mom a gift, too!
