Last minute Lucy....


So being the crazy busy, last minute Lucy that I can be sometimes.... I figured that since it looks like the weather is going to stink tomorrow- and I'm slated to shoot two different baby shoots tomorrow- I figured it was high time to finally assemble those fancy studio lights and practice with them.

My kids rolled their eyes at me when I asked them to come and help me practice- so I suggested they could play dress up.... and my thought here was a couple of hats and things from my costume and props box.... it quickly turned into a free-for-all...... alllllllllllllllllllllllll over the garage that I had just cleaned and swept.....

The excitement at being able to paw through mom's bins and play dress up gave way to chaos and craziness... we found all sorts of alternate persona's......(and yes- I have tons of hats, wigs etc from years gone by) Shaneequa or She-na-na is my guess here.... Ga-Ga Galore......Can a girl really have enough feather boas, really???? Nanook of the North????
Garden fairy..... Stevie Ray Vaughn move on over.....

The court clown.....

Queen Tut

Helga the Horrible.....

But no matter how you call it- it was fun! And my girls take my breath away. I still have so much to learn about this whole lighting thing- but overall- I think it was a successful trial.


I hope that I can please the folks coming to shoot with me in the morning!

One co-worker of mine said she thought all your pix were in a studio. She couldn't tell they were in your garage, therefore you are doing QUALITY! I think each pix is gorgeous. BABIES are great subjects whether in a garden, momma's arms, daddy's hands or your garage. STUNNING! Another co-worker said, "no they looked good". Three votes for GOOD!!! Great work!!
