My brother is a spaz. Case and point.
All I wanted was a photoshoot. One tiny, simple photoshoot.
This is what I got instead.

For some reason, he couldn't keep his tongue inside his mouth.

He couldn't put his phone away for two seconds.

When I asked him to smile, I got this.

Or this.

See? Total spaz.

So, remember all those upcoming posts I told you about? The ones where I told the great stories of my recent adventures? Well, in case you didn't notice, they didn't happen. I got rather side-tracked.
Don't get me wrong, I did have great adventures. And I'm sure the stories would be wonderful also. I just haven't gotten around to writing about any of them.
I've been way too busy editing photos.
Photos like this.


And this.

I also bought these. I'm so excited. They are supposed to make your photo editing less time consuming, but I have a strong suspicion it will do the exact opposite for me. I imagine I'll spend even more time than ever messing around with my photos.
I also have a bit of good news. Cami, a work friend of Jason's wanted some photos of her and her hubby. So Aubrey and I took an afternoon and shot some nice photos for them.
Like this.

Cami and Dustin

According to Jason, she loved them. And also according to Jason, two more people at his office want me and Aubrey to shoot them some photos! How cool is that.
So now we are casually bouncing around words like "freelance" and "business" and "self-employed" and "big bucks."
So, I guess we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Sophie got her hands on the walkie talkies Dad was packing for Lake Powell and proceeded to have a conversation with herself. Needless to say, I overheard.

Sophie's right hand: "Hello, hello? Can you hear me? Over."

Sophie's left hand: "Hello? Can you hear me? Over."

Sophie's right hand: "Yes, I can hear you. Over."

Sophie's left hand: "Oh good, I can hear you too. Over."

Sophie's right hand: "What are you doing? Over."

Sophie's left hand: "I'm not doing anything. Over."

Sophie's right hand: "Oh good. Do you want to play with me?"

Sophie's left hand: "Well, I'd love to. But you didn't say over. Over."

Well, I made it home alive and (mostly) well. As predicted, we had a great week. But boy, was it HOT! Over 100 every day. We were getting our sheets wet at night because it was too hot to sleep.
I'm too tired to go into much detail about the trip tonight. I'll try and get to that later. I just wanted to give you all a preview of what I'm working on.

Unfortunately, due to our camping situation, I wasn't able to take NEAR the number of landscape photos that I had wanted. We were kind of isolated in a spot that limited my exploring opportunities. In exchange, we had a great spot with 24 hour shade. With the weather we had, I was willing to sacrifice my photo opps.
However, I did get some good shots of other activities. I will definitely post when they are finished.

Well, I'm off to Powell in the morning. I'm sure it promises to be an interesting week full of sore muscles and sunburns. It's supposed to be over 100 degrees the whole week. I've had one to many bad sun/heat experiences. I'm not taking any chances this time around. My prediction is that in every photo of me taken over the next week, I will be covered from head to toe in hats, shirts, and sunscreen. And looking mighty fine at that.
(I'm just warning you now. Try not to laugh too hard when you see them.)
I don't know what's got me more excited. The annual Lake Powell trip, or being able to finally photograph it. I really hope that my photos will at least end up looking somewhat like the vision I have in my head. It's gonna be tough though, cause what's in my head is pretty amazing.
Anyways, wish me luck! I promise to post when I get back.
