ran around, had a consult, got hopped up on caffeine, and visited the best thriftstore ever where i finally found an unending supply of awesome vintage suitcases. i couldn’t choose so i bought 2, but i really could’ve bought 5 or 6. they are old school samonsites from back in the day. you know the type, hardcover with metal fasteners and probably a small trace of asbestos. also got some other cool stuff for props… exciting. again – best thriftstore ever!  i also need to go to father and son’s sometime to have a look around too. they’re a really great thriftstore in downtown raleigh and i know they’d have awesome stuff, but they’re slightly more “upscale” as they get a lot of their things from auctions and are genuinely vintage, so i like to look at cheaper thriftstores first before i spring for the expensive thriftstores, hah.

can’t wait for this trash the dress session on saturday. cross your fingers that it doesn’t rain.

finally getting around to all of the pictures of lemmy (logan lemewski) and sully (sullivan), my sister’s kittens. i took them when she first got them so that she could remember them when they got big. about a half a year later i am finally getting around to editing all of them. sorry, laura. :) typically the shooting, editing, delivery turn around time is 4-6 weeks, but it’s 4-6 months if you’re my relative. :) unfortunately in terms of editing priorities they get the short end of the stick. :(

but cute as buttons, here are some of the kitties. also, i think that my ratio of kittens to everything else i write about is really out of proportion at this point. oh well.

busy busy busy.

i am swamped with things to do today and will post more tomorrow. i’ve been booking lots of sessions for the fall and am going around the area scouting new locations for clients. there is no fun in continuing to shoot in the same places! i am also scouting out several thrift stores for props for an upcoming trash the dress session. i’m going to need to clean out the storage room in order to store ridiculous props from now on. :)  i’m also getting ready for several shoots and visits from two out-of-state friends. :) i should get a lot of awesome shots this month and i’m super excited. not a lot to post today because of all the running around, just a random nature shot or two. i’ll have more to update tomorrow. :)

also, it’s been raining a lot:
