What a weekend!
Then I went and helped staff the CERT booth for a couple of hours at the Summer Festival.

The county fair was disappointing, because the weather was yucky all four days. Attendance was way down, but we had a good time anyway. We talked with a lot of people, got lots of 'wow!'s on the big sample prints, and will hopefully book some jobs because of the face-time. Next year is the 100th county fair, so I'm hopeful that it will be a great time. I'll be there with bells on.
I had a fun shoot last week with a very beautiful little girl, commemorating her first birthday. Here are some of my favorites.
What a doll.
Eric took some time yesterday afternoon to do some macro work in our back yard. He is a very smart guy. When I told him yesterday morning about the weeding and stuff that needed to be done in the yard, he opted to come open the studio for me so I could do it, because in his words.... "I don't know how to weed." Ohhh... Kay... Well that was ok with me, I love to spend time watering and getting my hands dirty in the yard.
This weekend is Toledo's Summer Festival. After my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow morning, I'll be helping with coordinating the parade entries again, for the Toledo Chamber of Commerce, and then will be in the parade on the Toledo CERT float. Should be a very fun day. The CERT also has an information booth at the festival itself. Hope to see you there!
I think I'll have a 'dog days of summer' or 'dog day afternoon' promotion in the next month or so, so people can bring in their dogs for portraits. Sounds like fun.
Here is one of my favorite shots of Miss Rosie. Check out those eyelashes!!This is the composite I made from the best shots.
