Teasers from the Free Engagement Event!

First let me thank the two couples that came out to the Free Engagement Event yesterday. I had a BLAST with you guys, my face was sore from smiling and laughing so much! It was a little overcast during the day but didn't stop us from getting some great images. It was such an honor to capture these moments with them.

My first couple was Amy and Darren. What a sweet couple! Darren as usual was a bit nervous at first (don't worry Darren 99% of the guys are like this at first) but after a few he was all into it and having a blast showing the love that this couple had. Amy is going to make a beautiful bride and I felt she is very photogenic. OH Darren I loved when you dipped and popped that heel! (post that pic later still on the editing block!)

Now after my first ride up the incline I got to meet Joanna and Tommy. Wow what a great couple. Fun and a blast to work with. Tommy we know ya felt a little awkward but don't worry you looked FABULOUS! Don't worry I won't post the shot of you feeling Joanna up! Joanna and Tommy hammed it up like pros yesterday... And they even got invited to a party down after the engagement shoot with a guest that rode with us in the incline car! Every shot was like a story of how much love this couple has and it was an honor to work with you!

Side trip to Wheeling

Well things got turned around and I didn't go camping this weekend. Though I was on my way back home after I turned around and got rerouted through downtown Wheeling, WVA. Now let me tell you this town is just weird and interesting at the same time. Each block it seems is stuck in time. There was a section that look like the 50's and then the New Orleans section, and then like victorian... But for a photographer trying to kill some time it was very interesting to walk around and shoot pictures.


Out of town

Just to let anyone who wants to know I will be out of town from Friday till Tuesday and I will not have ANY internet access or cell signal... Going camping by my Mom's with my daughters out in BFE!

See ya all on Tuesday with some fun shots of my girls!


Pregnant man!?!?

I know or at least I think everyone is seen the news about the pregnant man. I think it was a miracle for this couple to have their own child in an unconventional way. But it really bugs me that these people are spreading their life out to the public. It makes me wonder what their motives are. He has been on Oprah and now he is going to be in People! Come on this kid is going to be picked on like a mother because his Dad gave birth to him... Now you are going to flaunt him all over the TV like some freak show at the circus!

UGH....my watermark...logo....or what ever it is

Ok so I am loving the new watermark thingy (yeah I am all about being technical). I love the Simply Shelly Lynn as a division of AT Studio Designs. I didn't want to give up AT because of the fact my soon-to-be husband is wanting to do something with me once I get this biz up and going and we can use AT and have our own little part of it... He likes to do the DVD slide shows so that might be his little job to make him part of the AT team! And I can be Simply Shelly!

Alright I will stop babbling and get to the point. I can not get consistency with the size of my watermark. Looking at my blog I see some are smaller than others. I am new to blogging so I need to find the right size pictures for my blog then make the watermark fit that size. I guess this is all a learning curve...Please be patient with me while I learn the world of blogging!

Take a look into the past...
