So fancy equipment does not a photographer make, but I’ll tell you what – it sure helps! After spending a month with my BFF, the Nikon D700, it had to go back to it’s home and I got my D200 back from Nikon… all fixed up. Not that I’m not happy to see my little baby back, but seeing the quality that came from the D700 – I’m sold. I’ll be purchasing one very shortly :)

Speaking of besties… meet Taylor and Leeann!

They’re Seniors at East Ridge High School, and came out for the afternoon for a senior session! We had fun watching the chickens, talking movies and sharing some quality time over lunch (er… dinner?) – and they were troopers for dealing with Oviedo’s finest (honestly, why must every man in a huge pickup truck catcall, whistle and honk when they see teenage girls? Bleh.). Oh, and can we just take a second and talk about the HEAT? No, seriously. It’s October, right (as I check my calendar)…. and we had record highs with 103 heat index. We had to take “wipe the sweat” breaks. No kidding. Yuck.

Here’s a couple teasers from today!


Taylor is on the left, and Leeann is on the right.




So much more to come! But for now, I need to get some sleep because tomorrow is Images for a Cure, and I have 4 sessions plus 2 photographers, an assistant and videographer shadowing me. Yikes!
