Susan Stripling Workshop: Day 2

So, despite my date miscalculation and missing day one I ended up learning a lot. Susan got us all comfortable with working in harsh sunlight and we had wonderful models to work with! Right now I'll just show you my bride favorites and tomorrow I'll show you the engaged couple.

Susan, getting down as low as she can go! This is what it takes to get a great shot sometimes!

Workshop: Day one (or is it day 2?)

So, I got in my car and drove down to Norfolk today, excited about what this trip (my workshop with Susan Stripling) was going to hold. Life at home has been a little bit crazy with my husbands recent ACL injury, surgery, recovery and then another personal tragedy we've been dealing with. Needless to say I was ready to have a personal break and to learn and get to know other great photographers. So, the drive was down was great, I got to catch up with a lot of people on the phone (without being interrupted by my baby). I get here and visit with my friend Robin that I'm staying with and play with her adorable little girl. I'm supposed to meet every for a mixer at 7:30. I start to wonder if I should eat before I go or when I get there so I call the host, Eliese Theuer to get more info. She sounds confused by my question and says "Erin, the mixer was last night. The workshop started today." I was baffled! "What? Are you serious? How could I have gotten this wrong?" I couldn't believe that anything else could possible go wrong in my life! So, needless to say I was terribly disappointed and felt like a complete moron! But, I got there and everyone was so nice and welcoming and pretended that I wasn't a moron at all and promised to catch me up tomorrow. They kept saying "Oh, you didn't miss much!" But I don't believe them. :-)
So, hopefully tomorrow I will have some great stories and images to show you!
Come back and see!

My New Bellasign...

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted a new blog! We've had some crazy days at our house lately. My husband recently tore his ACL so we've been dealing with dr's appointments & then surgery this past Monday. So needless to we've been busy! But, I got my new, personalized Bellasign the other day and wanted to show it off! Jami did a great job and it matches Haley's room perfectly! I also wanted to tell you about a new blog that Jami just started, called "The Nato Family." It is such a funny blog documenting the "joys" of pregnancy and motherhood! Whether you're pregnant, have been pregnant or aren't anywhere near being pregnant it's a fun read, take a look!

Haley is turning into a teenager already!
