So my mom called me last night to ask me if I knew the good news? She told me my cousin Shannon had been calling me & couldn’t get me. Well, Shannon had told us all this past weekend that she was pregnant. I thought THAT was the good news. Then my mom so lovingly said, “NO, ding-dong! Your image of Nanny & the kids is in People Magazine!!!” After I got done squealing & screaming, I hung up and drove like an idiot to WalMart to buy 5 copies! And right there, on page 49 of the May 17th issue, there is the image of my grandma “Nanny” and my 2 kids. People Magazine has a readership of 3.75 million – LOTS of people can see MY image! I’m so excited!
I went back to Rehoboth over Thanksgiving (2009) and did a “Barn Collection” series. Had about half a dozen people sign up for one of these sessions. Since I already had my equipment with me, I took my stuff down to Nanny’s house & began taking some images & got this gorgeous one! Notice the scratch on my daughter’s face – she just finished duking it out with a dog & she lost… 🙂 That’s okay, though. Was still a great image.
So, I’ve contacted 5 different newspapers & issued a press release. Several will be doing a story on the piece & I’ll have lots more to blog about over the coming weeks! God is so good – it’s because of Him that I have the talent & passion to do this!
