Odd Angles #2

Here is another old one I just re-looked at.   I love the angle and pose on this one!

Odd Angles #1

I have a love for odd angles when I shoot, especially when photographing children.  Course now that my bad knee is re-injured/acting up, I have no idea when I will be able to get a lot of these odd angles.

Here is one of my daughter on a swing with her daddy from a year ago.  Eventually, I will get all these older images out of my editing software and some new ones in there again.

Whirlwind of Changes, Again

After much debate and discussion, I am moving.  Since my husband is deploying in August or September for 12-14 months, I am moving my daughter and self to my folks house across the country.  Therefore, Jrzy Girl Photography will actually be located in New Jersey for awhile.

Between having a soon to be 3 year old that is highly attached and never really been apart from her daddy for more then a month, being pregnant, and having 2 large dogs, it was best we relocate where we can get the assistance we may and will need.

This move allows me to continue in my photography classes, and keep my businesses open.  And gives my daughter a lot of people to be around on a regular basis so the separation from her daddy is not so drastic.  It will be a long and trying year, but one full of fun and adventure.  Especially these last months of the year. We will be departing for NJ in late July, where we will be throwing a send off party for my husband right away. August brings my niece's 3rd birthday.  September brings a new baby (not mine!) to the family and my daughter's 3rd birthday party.  October is my daughter's actual birthday month, my cousin's daughter's 2nd birthday, and Halloween.  November brings my nephew's 5th birthday and Thanksgiving.  December brings my 5th wedding anniversary (first one spending it apart), the arrival of my baby, 3 birthday's, and Christmas.  I think in January we get a time to rest, though January or February brings my husband home for 2 weeks.

My grandmother has 6 grandchildren with birthday's spread out throughout the year. By the end of 2010, she will have 6 great-grandchildren with birthday's on top of each other.  If all goes planned, we will have one in August, one in September, 2 in October, 1 in November, and 1 in December.  In late July, we are hoping to find the gender of our baby.  The grandkids go: Boy, boy, girl, girl, boy, boy.  The great-grandkids go: boy, girl, girl, girl, boy, and unknown.  If we keep the pattern, I should be having another girl.  Though everyone but myself thinks it will be a boy.  We shall see!

It has been awhile!

I greatly apologize for the long month absence from my blog.  It has been an interesting month to say the least.

I had my art show in mid-April, which went horribly bad!  Not sure I will attempt shows again at all, but if I do it will be awhile before I can.  Right after that, I took my daughter to New Jersey to visit her grandparents.  Which you saw the photos in my last post from the photo shoot I did while I was there.

I came back to my husband away at training, so it was just the two of us and the dogs.  I was feeling really horrible and was beyond tired.  I could barely move from the couch for days upon our return.  I needed a lot of rest just from taking a shower, giving my daughter a bath, and walking the dogs.  Come to find out, I was not actually sick with a cold but instead pregnant.  It was a total shock, considering the doctor had just told us a month before this that it was impossible for us to have more children.

It took me about 2 weeks to get over the shock and to remotely gain back the slightest bit of energy.  I basically laid on the couch all of May.  Now I am 11 weeks along, and now that I am 2 weeks from the second trimester I am finally gaining some energy back.  Thank goodness!

So, I hope to have some new photos for you soon.  In mid-July, I am starting an Intro to PhotoJournalism course in my Photography program at school.  I am eager to see how this class goes and what kind of images result from it.
