"I'm only happy when it rains..." sang the enigmatic Shirley Manson of Garbage. I can say the same for me too, lashing down on the roof whilst cosying up at night with it's rhythm constant as a timekeeper for nature's weeping...
Did I mention to you that I am in a state of delirium? Weather is the one of the most talked about subjects in the world. Yet, when it's supposed to be summer outside and the heavens decide there is another plan afoot, I get a little off kilter with thoughts, so I'm just going to ramble on through this post as best as possible. Do bear with me, there's a dear x
Okay, as you may have read before, there were several big portrait sessions I've undertaken. A whole dance school twice and a several family sittings.
Everything seems to have flooded my workflow! Just like the rain, (what a coincidence!) So a balancing act ensued with post-production, enlisting a lab, (thank you Sim2000 Imaging!) then dabbling with some marketing ideas, as well as helping said dance school with promotions.
Sim2000 were on hand to help me create my first book to showcase the Hart School of Dance dress rehearsal group portraits, within three days! They offer a fast-track service that would leave most printers shaking their head in disbelief. I know, I'm married to one :D ! Before I could relax, the school needed assistance with their programme for their big show this Sunday, so I jumped on board to get it looking slick with the lovely Tina Holland. At time of writing it's going to press, finger's crossed and all that jazz!
You often find me wittering away on Twitter, but I have to say thank you to Zarn. A fellow Aussie that brings out the silly nature in me when we chat, and she runs one of the most desirable wedding blogs around. In fact, it's admiration mixed with envy because it's designed so beautifully. Being a bit of a magpie when it comes to design myself, if it looks good I'm usually there.
Speaking of design here's a sample of self-produced work that I exhibited last year to celebrate a certain milestone. Vanity was intentional, but only for this occasion :)
