Hey folks! Long time no see. I apologize for that as I sit here and realize that it's been almost a year to the day since I last posted anything. For those of you that kept up with me, despite the lack of update, believe me I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This one is going to be an update rather than photography based (just like old times, right?), but I feel it's important.
I don't know how often I'll be able to update this thing going forward. I have been very busy, and I have been fluctuating between being so busy that I've barely been home and sitting in my house smacking myself in the head trying to think of ideas.
The past year has been...important. I ended up with a POS car, that at least still gets me from point A to point B. My wife, son, and I have more than healed from the accident. We were lucky to begin with. No major injuries just very, very sore, for about a month or so. (They never show that part in the movies and tv shows do they? Bruce Willis crashes his car and he doesn't even flinch. I couldn't close my hand flat for a month. Trying to click the shutter hurt like a wicked...b....witch, and my wife's ribs were sore most of the Spring.
I'm in the process of redoing my portfolio, and I found seasonal employment with a national company that has kept me VERY busy over the fall. As in 60 hour weeks during the September. Which is great. You all know I love to work, it just meant that I wasn't available to do things like update the blog. As much as I would love to post some of the photos from those shoots, I was just the trigger, they belong to the other company.
For those that think I'm being evasive not mentioning what company it is...it's in an attempt to separate the various sections of my life. As this is my blog, and I'm apt to say what's on my mind, I figure keeping the two worlds separate. Let's just say I absolutely love working for this company, and after having dealt with some of their competition...I'm very glad I made the right choice in applying with the company I did.
My wife is starting to come around to my photography after a half dozen years. We've been looking to buying a house in the not too distant future, and after looking at some of the photos my wife turned to me and sang my praises. It was a good feeling. Same thing after our little guy got his first school photos back. Again, I won't name companies out of respect, but it was nice for my wife to turn to me and go..."I really should've had you do them...but they were his first school photos and..."
Anyway. I'm going to try and update more often. I know that has been difficult in the past, and I suspect that trend will continue as the shooting season starts to warm up and get heavier.
Other than that, I hope everyone has been having fun so far in this brand new 2016. And I look forward to seeing everyone over the course of the year.
