At least once a week I'm cursing our Seattle weather for being the reason I can't photograph yet another awesome party before shipping it off. I'm not sure if you've heard - but it rains a lot here in Seattle. This month we've set some really exciting records - all having to do with wetness and low temperatures - but I figure it's just God's little gift, giving us more time to get ready for summer clothes.
I take all of my pictures outside for a multitude of reasons, the biggest one being that I only know how to point...and shoot. Natural light is the KEY for pointers and shooters like myself. My dream is to one day own a camera that was built in the last 5 years and is not currently available in the "Free Stuff" section of Craigslist....and then of course my next dreams are to;
a) not break it
b) not lose it on vacation
c)learn how to use it (white balance, aperture - say what?!)
But in the mean time, my trusty little
piece of crap camera gets the job done... as long as we're outside with natural lighting. But when our weather isn't cooperating there just isn't much that can be done about it. So with a little tear, and with no photos - off the party goes to the post.
So as you can imagine it makes.my.day to get photos of your parties! Most importantly I love seeing happy kiddos, proud parents and lots of frosting. But coming in at a close second - I love to share photos of those parties that "got away". The parties I wanted so desperately to photograph prior to shipping but couldn't. Because about 10 times a week I'm asked if I have a dinosaur party and NOW I can finally send everyone here!
We do! We do have a dinosaur party and it is dang cute! Not quite as cute as an entire family in party-coordinating-outfits....but still cute.
and even better when the pictures come from an excellent professional photographer, Jenny Ann Photography.
