Today I shot three family portraits, spent four hours too many at the mall with three kids, one of which is trying to get over a cold and when he cough sounds like he belongs in an iron lung. Then I took the oldest two shopping separately so they could buy presents for each other, all while running on 5 hours of sleep since my baby doesn't like to go to bed until 1 am. I also tried to squeeze in a shoot of some Christmas lights but when I got to the home that I planned to photograph the owner wasn't around to turn on his fantastic display and again I missed my opportunity. So this will come as no surprise, something had to give. I have not one intelligent thought left in my head so no photo for today. I think I'm going to go address my Christmas cards instead.


  1. I just wanted to say that I love reading your blog! It is so nice to be able to read HOW to do certain techniques and to try them on my own. Even when there is no photo, I still enjoying following. I also have three kids (10, 9, and 1) so I know how crazy life can be. Thank you for what you're doing!
