It's Almost Halloween & A New 70-200mm Lens

Tonight, was wear your Halloween costume to church. Chey is Anna from Frozen. Dakota is going as Elsa, but she didn't go to church -- tonight, so that's why she did not dress up. 

I got a new 70-200mm lens, so I grabbed a few photos of the girls. I think I'm really going to have fun, taking portraits and doing video work with this. I've only taken a few pictures, but I'm already impressed. It's so wonderful that I have beautiful models to take pictures of....I love my girls.

That Time, Trey Operated a Camera

I usually work by myself at weddings, but Trey helped me with a camera, during the Austin wedding. When I was reviewing footage, I came across this image. He's multi-talented.

I have two more weddings to shoot for the rest of the year. And a whole lot of editing to do.

The Sleeping Beauty Ballet

I took Cheyenne to watch a ballet - The Sleeping Beauty. It was Texas Ballet Theater's latest production. We loved it! Dee Dee, my old boss was working as a stage hand. She asked the cast to sign a performance book for Cheyenne. That was so nice of her to do that! Cheyenne has a ballet keepsake box, so we'll put it in there.

This year, I decided to subscribe to the Ballet, I have tickets to go to every production at Bass Performance Hall - with the exception of the Nutty Nutcracker. This will be my assigned seat for each show! Orchestra, center. I like it!

Chey and I stepped out to the lobby during every intermission.

We also enjoyed pink Tutu drinks. Mine tasted better than hers :)

Before the show, we went to the Tutus and Tiaras ballerina event. It was a party for young girls to do crafts, take pictures with ballerinas, and play before the performance started.

The performance was 3 hours long and Cheyenne did great! I'm so proud of her. She also enjoyed the show.

My First Guitar was a Flying-V, an Outrageous Costume and a Princess at Work

People recognize Columbus Day? Cheyenne had the day off from school, so we just rocked out all day, you know…
The first electric guitar I had was also a Flying-V. I use to play Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit. Bush - Machine Head and Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm. I wasn't amazing, but I wasn't awful.

Last night, was the Ladies Night Halloween Party. Guess who won best costume?

This past weekend I was consumed with editing, Dakota would check-up on me every now and then. It's like every time she'd visit with me, she was either wearing a new outfit or streaking (no diaper)…she has decided to give potty-training another go…She's doing ok.
Oh, I'm still loving my new office and computer. It really is a great space to work.

These girls love to play with each other. We spent our morning at church and afterwards enjoyed a picnic outside.

Crazy Storm & A Little Work Trip

Thursday, while I was at work, Arlington got hit with a massive storm. The storm lasted for 30 minutes. After it was over, there was a lot of damage, power outages, street lights not working, and so much traffic. It took me 2 hours to get home.

The next day, campus was closed - due to the power still being out. I took Dakota to daycare and Chey went to school. I worked from home on small business stuff. I also had a chance to prep my gear for a wedding.

Saturday, Trey and I drove to Austin. I was so excited that he was able to go with me. His business, has kept him busy, but he made it a priority to join me on this weekend work trip. Saturday night we went out for dinner and then watched Gone Girl.

We actually stayed in Buda and then Sunday, I filmed a wedding at Chapel Dulcinea.

This is not the chapel I filmed at, I just like the way this chapel looks. I ran past it, Saturday morning before heading to the wedding. I managed to get 6 miles in.

Here's my groom and bride. Ahhh, they are so freakin' cute! I can't wait to edit their film! Check my business blog for more pictures from the wedding.
