Wow! A few weeks have come and gone since my last Tuesday blog.
Tuesday’s are just flying by and I am starting to realize how easy it is for busyness to get the best of me, at least in the way of keeping up my blog that is. I have so many things coming to fruition right now with my photography business and schooling. Yes…you read right, schooling. I am graduating with a degree in Graphic Design this July. Yay!! Although I am thrilled about this accomplishment, it has certainly overwhelmed my spare time with finals and planning for an upcoming internship. I am gaining a new appreciation for all the college kids out there trying to juggle all they do. Finding the balance in time while caring for family, running a business and going to school can be challenging, but I remind myself often to appreciate the blessing of it all. I was reminded just this past week in the lyrics of a familiar, favorite song, “In the middle of my little mess, I forget how big I’m blessed.” A reminder to myself every now and again to breath and tell myself, “If I miss a blog or two occasionally, it’s not the end of the world. It just means I am busy doing what I love, taking pictures and learning how to always be the best I can be at just that!”
Most of my photography sessions over the past two weeks have been with graduating seniors. Old Town St. Charles, historic Cottleville and cooperating weather made perfect settings for these shoots. I am looking forward to getting the editing work done on these sessions. I will also be finishing up a shoot with one of my Senior Role Models. I am eager to get his session shot and edited so I can finalize this new program for 2012 and get it up, running and released.
I was honored to photograph the Third Annual Gala for BreakDown STL Saturday, April 14th at the Kemp Auto Museum. What an amazing event with Tim Ezell as MC and Andy Benes as a guest speaker, also the recipient of the BreakDown STL Youth Empowerment Award. It was certainly a “red carpet” event!

A big, heartfelt thanks to BreakDown STL for announcing me that evening as BreakDown’s official photographer. I love this group and all they are doing for our community.
Saturday, I photographed Lindsey and Adam’s wedding at Hermann Hill. What a beautiful day it turned out to be after all the rain we had last week. I also found time over the weekend for a workshop on senior photography at the Hilton Ball Park and the Wedding Trail in Hermann. Always appreciative to learn!
Tip of the week: Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Until Next Tuesday!
