Let it Snow!

If you were in Atlanta on Saturday, you saw the awesome snow we got. It has been so long since I saw snow that I got quite giddy at the first site of it. Pretty silly considering I lived in Baltimore for 18 years and then Rochester, NY for 4 (home of "lake-effect" snow flakes the size of golf balls.) But it hasn't snowed in Atlanta in a LONG time so we made the most of it. In the morning, Nick's cousin, Julia, had her Bat Mitzvah and we managed to go outside for a bit to enjoy the snow. How adorable is she?!

When Nick and I got home, we went out into our yard immediately to play. I felt like I was 8 again. So much fun!

When I lived up north, two inches of snow wasn't even worth the time to build a snowman, but down here, it was a ton of snow.

Meet our rocker-snowman - complete with his backstage pass and headphones.

And this is our beach-bum snowman. He's all set with his beach volleyball, Frisbee and drink.

Blogging Clients

My fantastic client, Hallie Crawford, mom of Vaughn, is a Certified Co-Active Coach - she helps people identify their loves and dislikes and then helps them find the right career. I just love that she is helping others and I especially love her Mission:

To change the way people feel about work from just a paycheck to a fulfilling endeavor that is an extension of their purpose and passion.
She offers career coaching for anyone already in the working world and for college grads. How gratifying it must be to be able to help people move past stress and anxiety into something they love.

Not only does she have a great website, but she's also BLOGGING! Check out her recent post about our portrait session. She is releasing a book shortly and I am thrilled that she will be using some head shots I took of her on the book cover and on her websites.

I know that I am lucky to have found my passion for photography and to be able to make a career from it, so whenever I hear friends or family talking about how miserable they are in their jobs, it makes me really sad. I have been there. Memories of working as a legal secretary still haunt me. That 9-5 in a small office with no window and a boss who treated me like his personal gofer were a nightmare.
