it’s been a busy 1.5 weeks and it will continue for several more… but all good exciting! consulting this afternoon, editing, etc. i have to go get my car inspected sometime this week which, although not expensive, is just a general pain. i then i have to re-register it w/ the state of north carolina, blah blah blah. we are finally approved to shoot at American Tobacco in durham this friday for our trash the dress session! i can’t wait to have some of those up here and in the portfolio. my friend steve from florida is also coming up on friday to hang out w/ us over the weekend here in raleigh. steve is a friend of mine from college (point park university in pittsburgh) who recently moved from¬† pittsburgh to the orlando area. we’re excited to show him around raleigh this weekend. :)

here’s some more photographs from the jennifer and travis shoot!

in personal news, i am currently in the midst of planning my fall weddings and portraits. :) i’ll get to more of that next week. still waiting on the trash the dress session permit from american tobacco – hopefully that will arrive shortly so we can get to that and squeeze it in. geoff and i are picking up camping gear from his cousin’s tonight for our weekend excursion into the wilderness which starts tomorrow. when i return i will be posting session photos from this week and later camping photos. no professional photography is allowed in north carolina state parks without a permit that i currently don’t have… so i’m assuming i should leave my really obvious giant photography equipment that draws lots of attention at home. it’s mostly my lighting gear, but every time i’ve used it in the past week or two i have been stopped by some person of authority or media. and i don’t need my gear being confiscated in a state park a few hours from home. :) i’ll still be taking pictures… just compromisingly lit ones. :)

for now, here’s a thursday throwback: child portrait edition.
