I Did It !!!! (oh, and a book review!)

I wasn't sure if I was going to make it but I did....six photo shoots in seven days and I'm alive to tell about it!!
I just took it one day at a time, appreciating each shoot. The days outside enjoying the amazing colors of fall.....the new hidden treasures of nature that I discovered with families in tow......The hikes up the Pipeline with two toddlers in tow, the jaw dropping scenery almost making me forget that I was there to take photographs.....The snuggly newborn with a strawberry hat perched on her head, her adorable mom such a joy to chat with..... And the cousins and their mothers who braved the weather getting in a great shoot just before the rain began to fall!
It almost makes me wish I hadn't made the decision to take November and December off.....almost!
I have five more shoots this month and then it's two months of family time, of course by the time I finish editing this months pictures it will probably be January so I might not get as much free time as I first thought *snicker*
I have added some more shoots to Photography Blog . I know that I have forgotten to add some clients, I hope they don't think it isn't because I didn't love their sessions! I just got a little behind and confused on which ones I had added and which ones I hadn't. When I get it all ironed out I will add their sessions too :)

A belated book reivew on "The Uglies". Hmmmmmm....a very very interesting book. The author has an amazing imagination. I can't say that I have ever read a "futuristic" style book. Somedays I would think "eh, I'm over it" but then I couldn't get the story out of my mind so I would have to go back and see what was going to happen to Tally and Company. This book really made me think about our society now and what we are going to leave for the future generations and how we will be perceived by them. And it was also a great commentary on the perceptions we have of ourselves and what is beautiful and what is ugly. There are two more books to this series which I have not decided if I am going to read or not....but if you're into futuristic books this is definitely a book you should read!

My next book.....I'm not sure! I have three possible choices right now so hopefully I will figure it out in the next day or so :)

I am going to go look at your other blog right now! Well, after I finish typing...

If you are looking for suggestions on books go here, http://www.readergirlz.com

I just discovered them tonight... and they look like they have some good suggestions on their site. One of the "Diva's" contacted me and wants a custom order from me! PLUS, on their myspace group they host live chats with different authors each month... this month they have people I think every day! GUESS WHO IS ON HALLOWEEN!!!! That's right! The Great and Powerful Oz herself, Stephenie Meyer! I am SO going to be in on that chat!

Ok, this is the worlds longest comment... I should have emailed it to you :)
