Business has been good. God has seriously been blessing our businesses. Supergreen much more so than Tiffany Anne Photography, but since Mike is the breadwinner, I'm okay with that.
Last year, I did two weddings as the primary (FREE) photographer and had three (paid) second shootings jobs. So far this year, I've got 17 that I've done or will do here in the next few weeks (8 primary, 8 second photographer, 1 photographer's assistant).

The books are spendy, but so worth it. I'm currently doing a book to amp up the writing on my site. Next, I think I'll review my business plan.
More learning: workshops. I'm going to Imaging USA in January, and the PPNC Western Seminar. My last SB workshop is right around the corner. I was SO blessed to be the winner of that seat and, my goodness, what a huge help it has been!
I'm excited about the PPNC workshop this weekend because I get to see Stargirl's new apartment! Oh yeah, and Stargirl. ;-)

It feels not right when I'm advancing the film...so, not sure what's happening here. I'm thinking about investing in a film camera that I can use with my expensive lenses. We'll see. I'd really like the Canon EOS 1V ($1,699 for a FILM camera?!?) but I'll
I thought this post was going to end up being about more, but, as it turns out, I'm just really obsessed with photography lately. So I guess that's what you get.
If you read all my these rambles, thanks. Maybe the next one will be an equally deep stream of consciousness...maybe about how much I love to get my arms waxed. Because, truthfully, I love that an awful lot.
