Well, not quite.

I am, however, putting a more concentrated effort into expanding my photography business in Aiken.  It's so much fun and I'm so in love I only wish there were more hours in the day.  It seems like yesterday I got my Canon Rebel and couldn't take a focused picture to save my life.  Of course, countless hours with that baby in my hand led to not only focused images, but every now and then one that I was amazed I had taken.  Well, as that started happening more, my expectations grew.  With several workshops behind me, hundreds of tutorials and thousands and thousands of practice shots I felt like I had outgrown that camera; which led me to the Canon 5d Mark II.  Or Livi Grace II as I refer to her.  My new love.  Don't get me wrong, I still love Livi Grace, in fact, I still carry her everywhere with me too, only now as a back up.  I love that I can look back on some of my previous images and cringe while ten "flaws" jump out at me.  It's a nice reminder I'm making progress.

Speaking of progress, I'm so happy with the progress I've made in Aiken already and all the new people I've gotten to meet through this art.  I can't wait to see what the future holds.  I'd love to do this more full time, ya know, in about 29 months when the boys start kindergarten.  but who's counting?  For right now, I'm loving being a mommy all the time and a part time photographer by appointment!  Life is good.

Now my shameless plug:
