So i just want to say thank you to my 3 lovely followers, Amanda, Shelby, and Dinah Sadie, as well as those of you that are silently out there for helping me see that someone is out there actually reading and watching what i put up. So i thought that i would let you guys know whats coming up next, which is my makeup story/ confidence video. Im a strong believer in using makeup for the right reasons and feeling good about what is beneath the foundation and eyeshadow. So if your interested keep your eye out for that hopefully it should be up by the end of the week. But in the meantime you can catch me on Twitter, youtube messages/comments,email, beautylish, as well as here. Talk to you all so :)

Something Different

alright, so i am not just all about photography, i also am interested in makeup, nothing hardcore but i do think its fun to add special touches to your most viewed feature. So im going to try something a little different, and do a beauty post. So here goes,
Just this past weekend i took my mom to Ulta for the first time and on our way out i noticed a sign that said "Buy 2 get 2" on Ulta products. So i checked out some of their gel liners. Now i do have Stila's smudge pot, but these were way cheaper so i wanted to try. So unfortunatly my packages werent flawless when i purchased them, but i dealed.

ok so i really liked the colors when i swatched but when i apply then to my eye the brown blue and purple kinda look the same, i am currently working on fixing this problem. i also have a problem with them being liquidy when i use them, i do live in a very hot place so i put them somewhere cool, but my stila gel liner works just fine and it is in the same place..mystery.
Anyways, let me know what you think of this, and if you would like to see more!

update on the Studio

ok so a while ago i promised a picture of my portable studio, well it worked so well the first time I was asked to work another party last night. This time the kids were a few years younger and were alot more into the idea of taking fun pictures together. So here are some of my favorite pics from the last 2 parties,

Portable studio

Ok so im in creative mode right now, one of my crazy ideas includes building my own portable studio. Now im not talking about a studio for merchandise, rather, for people :). Now im super excited about this because while i was in my dorm room last year i was using the structures already in place, as well as hair clips and ducktape. Now there is nothing wrong with those things, they let me have my foundation that i have now. However now i do not have those things so im building a new one. This one is going to be nearly 7 ft tall and 6 ft wide and made out of pvc piping. the reason im doing this now is because im taking pictures for a party saturday and i would really like to have this done by then so i can try it out. so here is what my old setup was....
i will DEFINITELY upload a picture of my creation and hopefully some pics from it.
im seriously looking forward to this :D

My Camera

ok so since im kinda in a blogging mood i thought i would let you guys out there see the camera that i use to take all of my photos. Its not really anything extremely fancy however it is more than a basic point and shoot.
ok so there it is, it is a Sony Cybershot HX1, ive had it for about a year now and i love it, the display is swivel capable and it also include the Panoramic sweep function. Lots of trial and error has done me well and im not done yet. :)

Life as we know it

So alot has happened since i was last on here, I believe the last time i wrote i had just gotten back from a wonderful vacation in California with my family. Its always been hard being away from my family, especially when i go back and see just how close they are, and just how close they are with out me. Most of the time i can keep it together while I'm there but when loneliness hits from missing my beloved boyfriend, i crack. He has heard me talk about how i have cousins that didn't know my name or my face until they were 6 years old and how the day we get married no one will come. My hopes and dreams for my future family is that we can be as close as my family in California. I want my kids to know the people that i call family and let them know that even if you aren't with your family at all times it doesn't mean they don't love you and think about you just as much as you do them. At work there is a family of two sisters whose kids are very close in age and attend the same school, every once in a while one of the sister will pick up the other ones kids out of convenience and love for the kids. i want to be like them, even though my brother my not be picking up my future kids anytime soon its still a hope that i wish to keep alive in my heart.

UPDATE long overdue

so the past year of my life has been sooo hectic, but its also been good in many ways.
Sadly because i am out of a dorm i dont get to do photography as often as i would hope. however that doesnt mean that i havent had some good times. I kept my job from the summer and now work at a brand new school that is gorgeous inside and out. My kids are great, all 10 of them :) im pretty sure im going to keep elementary education as my career path, being a teacher is just like being a role model, you get instant gratification when you help them do something like use the monkey bars or swing on their own. Of course i have my bad kids, and they are all loud and energetic but what 6 year old isnt. well i have had sometime to do a little picture taking and i wanted to share some of those images with they are the raw images (my brother hasnt loaded photoshop since i last wiped my computer) but i think you can appreciate them just the same. so enjoy :)
