I think this past weekend may have been the coldest two days we’ve had this whole winter! I finally had to break down and turn our heat on for the first time only to discover that it makes this crazy noise that sounds like someone with a really loud subwoofer is driving by outside. Luckily we got it fixed, but for the first few hours I was actually considering turning it off because I’d rather be cold that have a headache! I’m so happy we had a little snow this year though! It was so pretty!

Netflix. Okay can we talk about how addictive Netflix is? It’s like crack! I can’t sit down in front of Netflix and watch one thing! I get sucked into it and want to spend all day watching an entire season of a show. This weekend I watched like six episodes of the West Wing in a row. And the only reason I didn’t watch more was because we left for food.

This is kind of random but last week we decided that I’m going to WPPI this year!! If you don’t know what WPPI is, it’s the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. They have this huge convention every year in Vegas with a tradeshow where you can check out all of these products offered to photographers and a ton of classes to take. About 15,000 photographers go, so if you know me, thinking about it is kind of overwhelming, but I’m pretty excited I get to go and learn from so many accomplished photographers this year! The best part is, the whole trip is a write off for my business! Yay!

Also, I spent part of my Saturday this weekend designing my first sample album! Im hoping to get it ordered in a few weeks. This year I definitely want to start educating my clients on how beautiful these books are and the first step is getting one in my hands to show off! Also, I disovered that I really enjoy album design!! Here are a couple of the spreads I put together:



That’s it for me this chilly Monday :) I’m heading up to my second home (RVA) in a little bit to meet with potential clients and have lunch with a friend. What are you guys up to today?  Hope you all stay warm! PEACE OUT!!

    Love the sample album! So pretty! I try to avoid Netflix because I’ll quickly lose an entire day to reruns… oh my… addictive is an understatement!

    The sample design is fab! Whenever the hubby is out of town I’ll snuggle on the couch and watch everything and anything on netflix that he wouldn’t usually watch with me. Which normally ends up being chick flicks and kid movies. LOL.

    You’re going to have so much fun at WPPI!! I’m skipping this year after going for the past few….and while I will be insanely jealous of everyone there…I know it’s a smart business move :-/

    Oh my! Netflix is my undoing! I get into one show and then I watch all the seasons of it. So bad. Congrats on WPPI!! I wish they had one for hair and makeup artists! ha.

    I am LOVING your album spreads!!!! Can’t wait to see the album! Also, Netflix is such a problem for me I actively avoid it so I don’t watch all 5 seasons of a show in one week :/

    Brrr this weekend was SO cold! It’s beyond icy out and scary!!! I couldn’t agree more thant netflix is a time consuming crazy being that we cannot explain! hahaha!!
    I wish I was going to WPPI… I’ve been saying “next year” for 3 years now.. but it’s definitely not my time right now D;
    Sample albums are always so fun to make!!! today I spent my day cutting and pasting things from bride magazines into my wedding book. yep I’m getting married this year and a wedding photog.
    I hate planning my bedding but I’ll cut and paste all day! :P
