a little bragging, but mostly embarassing

There's a reason I stay behind the camera: I'm not photogenic. At all. Seriously. But I had to share the following clipping, because I'm so happy about it.
Yesterday the Salisbury Young Professionals hosted a career day, and I was able to talk to around 200 students about being and becoming a photographer. I encouraged them all to take lots of business classes! But anyway, the staff photog from the local paper (who carried a Nikon d300) was quite lovely, although his picture makes me look like a dying pig.

when I want to relax, I take pictures

I've had this photoshoot in my head for a while, and finally last Saturday we drove to Ocean City to take the shots. The concept was vintage coats with stilettos, very vintage glam hair, and red lips, against a background of the abandoned beaches. Well, we got to the beach and it was pouring and the wind was gusting up to 55 mph. So the girls didn't want to do it, but we hadn't just spent 2 hours pincurling Jo's hair just to give up. You can see her hair deteriorate as the shoot progresses, and maybe I should call this "the ruined shoot." But I absolutely adore these pictures and hope you enjoy them, too.
