Trash the dress… Becky

03.31.08 Weddings





Yesterday we went down town for a trash the dress session, if you arent sure what that is….

it is a opportunity to get the photos, you didn’t get at your wedding, things that are maybe more edgy or urban….

There are websites dedicated to this “trend” such as http://www.trashthedress.com/ Go ahead, you know you want to. Trash it. Get it dirty. Get it wet. Roll around in the mud. Drench it in the ocean. Totally trash it. Why? … Why not? You’ve made a commitment to your husband. He’s your one and only true love, right? Then you’ll never need the dress again. And no, your daughter won’t wear it in 20-30 years. So you have two choices: 1) Suffocate it in plastic and throw it in a closet 2) Show your husband how committed you are by trashing the dress, and get some great fun pictures while you do it!

These are a few of Beckys… i have the all of my favorites on my flikr account…

Extension…

03.29.08 Uncategorized

Hi… everyone out there!

I think we should grant an extension for this week… and i think most people need 2 weeks to complete the assignments… so that is what we are going to do, you have until next Sunday to get your photos ready…. i hope you are all thinking about what you want to capture, then making it happen… I, like many of you have had a rough week, we have been passing a awful sickness around this week that has had all of us, including matt and I sick…

Happy Spring!!!

Get out there and start shooting!

Love ya! E

So true…

Here are the Rules:
1. You have to submit between 5-10 images, no more or less.
2. Photos have to be related to the “assignment topic”

Interactive Blog….

03.20.08 Uncategorized

So I have been thinking i want to make this more of an interactive blog, instead of just talking to myself… and i was thinking of starting to post weekly photo assignments. I was “stalking” the Mamarazzi blog but she isn’t really on the ball with posting assignments… Who wants to play? I think every Tuesday i will post a photo assignment and you have till Sunday to complete your pics and email them to me… i will post my favorite of your photos on Monday…. If you have ideas for assignments email me them? What do you think? I think it will be fun and will maybe inspire everyone to get out and take photos… If you know anyone else who would like to play along, send me their emails and i will add their name to the blog.

Stay tuned for Tuesday’s assignment, in the meantime, post me a comment if you have an idea of what you think the 1st assignment should be!

Since i cant go a day without posting a picture… here is what Gabby did with her “mimi”

For those that are interested.

Peeps…

03.19.08 Uncategorized


From Parenting Magazine…. My Favorite is #4… made me laugh so I had to share….

4 Ways kids are like Peeps…

1. They are sweet, though almost always a bit sticky.

2. You can give them a squeeze if they’re yours- but not if they are a strangers.

3. They are a known cause of stubborn belly overhang.

4. It can be hard to stop at one, but after 2 or 3, the thought of having another may make you queasy.
