Another amazing night.
The more time we get to spend together, the closer we get. It is nice to feel this growing so positively.
Sunday is going to be a hike, and sledding, then cooking together and watching football.
Maple ham, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts and carrots in a honey almond glaze, and a salad with home made vinaigrette....
I'm fucking awesome at this.
It's an interesting thing to now be part of the fashion incubator growing the industry here in Buffalo. To be a photographer designers and models call on when they want something done.
Last night I got to be front & center for the runway show. The photographer the models knew they should key on.
I was asked by the organizer to cover the promo board shots. That's where the fun and laughs happen.
The images are amazing.
With each event, I get more confident. Every time a model tells me how much she loves my work, every time a magazine rep tells me they're keeping an eye on what I do, even the CEO of a new social networking site for artists personally came to me to tell me he really loves my work and is thrilled I'm supporting his new site, it reaffirms that I am really giving this growing industry what they want and need.
Now we just need get more of an economy behind it!
Today I upload all the data into the new store site. Tomorrow I complete our shipping tables and then we should be live on Monday.
Tonight I have another fashion show to shoot, by popular request - the organizer and lead designer asked for me specifically. That's a pretty exciting thing to have happen.
The shoots from Sunday, I'm getting over my initial disappointment and self-criticism. The images have wowed the models. One said it was the best set anyone has ever done for her. That type of feedback goes a long way toward helping me no be so hard on myself.
Tomorrow morning starts with a meeting with a magazine publisher...
....things are moving along.
One of those days I had to cram in so much activity.
Started the day repairing her car - it has needed a little work and we can never find the time for it. While I did that, she got dinner ready to go. When we were finished with those tasks we raced into Allentown to do some browsing and shopping at some specialty boutiques before hitting our 1:30 start time with a photo shoot at the Hotel Lafayette.
The shoot was amazing. The hotel graciously let us use a room for prep and their space to capture some fantastic holiday themed images. It was a full-blown shoot - 6 models, dresses provided by a local designer, two stylists working on hair and make-up... and me, blitzing through as many set-ups and poses as I could in 2 hours or less.
Quite a challenge.
It was the first shoot she came with me on. She enjoyed it, got to meet the models and helped with everything from lighting to set-up.
My trooper! It's nice she is more than willing to take part in my passions and the efforts I put forth.
Back home, we enjoyed he INCREDIBLE dinner, and snuggled on the couch to watch a couple episodes of Breaking Bad.
And of course, found plenty of time for intimacy, wine and other fun things!
Hectic - but that is what I would call a great way to spend a day!
