Blake is dead set on being a friendly bat for Halloween, she also really wants Kylie to be a pumpkin, me to be a grasshopper and poor Zach, she wants him to be a sock. I tried to sway her decision to see how serious she is and she is very serious about her costume choice. Thankfully, I found a pretty cute friendly bat costume at Pottery Barn. It's so funny when they form their own opinion and you can no longer make them be a princess or whatever you had envisioned them being.

I went to pick Blake up from preschool yesterday and she was sitting very close to the cutest boy in her class, Carter, he had his hand on her and she was pretending to feed him a leaf. Early flirting, very funny. At least she picked the cutest one.

All the money I have made thus far has gone right back into the business. It's supposed to be that way for a while I think. So the next big order I get, I am going to buy some new backdrops. The last big order I got, I bought a new light, light stand and soft lighter to take with me to newborn and indoor shoots. I want to be prepared for the cold months when all I can do is indoor stuff. So please take a look at Drop It Modern and tell me your favorite backdrops. I love them all, but I should probably just start with 1 or 2. I would love to hear your opinion!

Please excuse my lack of blogging. I am usually working off and on all day and late at night on editing photos and other stuff for my company and the last thing I want to do when I finally get finished is do more computer stuff.

Some people were telling me that my photo blog was running really slow. I had to totally redo the entire blog anyway because of a hosting issue. BLAH! Or should I say BLAHG! I saved the pictures as much smaller files before I posted them so if it was taking forever on your computer, try it again. The blog link on my website actually works and aside from some cosmetic changes I will be making to the blog everything is working. Could it be the end of this website bs? Let's hope, seriously, seriously hope. Oh and I added some of my special events work (Jeni's shower, Astyn's shower, Jackson's bday party) the only thing I have left to add are these gorgeous bridal portraits, but I can't post until after the wedding.

Yes, that's right, today was Blake's second day of school. The first day was like three weeks ago. The following thursday there was an insane amount of rainfall and her school basement flooded. The tuesday and thursday after that she was sick. So finally she is back in school. I forgot to mention that after her first day when I went to pick her up she came running at me screaming and crying and saying, "I don't like preschool!" aw, sad. But as soon as we made it to the car she was all smiles and talking about the fun things she had done that day.

Starting a business is ridiculous hard work. It's hours upon hours upon hours of tasks. I am in huge debt for the first time in my life. I am confident that I will be out of debt fairly soon and finally making money. I am motivated, focused and as much as I hate to admit it, I think I have a mild to moderate case of workaholism. There is just so much to be done, how could I not be working all the time? Unless something got messed up, my website should be live tomorrow. I have worked so hard on it and you probably won't even be able to tell. It's still kind of plain.

Let me start out by saying I haven't had many bloopers in my photography career thus far. Yesterday was a different story. I had a couple session set up in McKinney at this beautiful development called Adriatica. The couple wanted to do some Christmas card pictures and they had come up with all these wonderful ideas. The first part of our session was going to be the couple popping those new year poppers that streamers fly out of. I thought it would really pop on a solid backdrop. I got it out and started to get set up in a fully shaded area on the side of a building. A gust of wind blew, my photo paper unrolled and went flying and crinkling in the breeze. The stand fell over and it was just a huge disaster. Point to remember: backdrops can not be used outdoors.

You may be tired of my business posts, but that is what is taking up most of my time these days and therefore what I feel inspired to share with my blog readers.

Blake has been sick and still has not made it back to preschool. She has only gone on the first day. Surely she can go next week. She is coughing and has a stuffy nose. I can tell she feels terrible, by her terrible grumpy attitude. I'm just trying to keep her happy and calm, and that is no easy task.

My photo blog got a face lift. Website, you're next. I decided on my logo and it was sent to me today. I still have a few things I want to add, I need to have Zach or Allison take a picture of me so I can put it on my bio. I actually got a client who contacted me through the "contact" tab on my blog and wants to set up a session. So cool to see it all coming together. I recruited my bff Allison for some family photos tomorrow since I had a client reschedule, so hopefully I can get some great shots of Justin, Allison and Caroline. If not, I know we will have fun trying.

New blog is up, it's not as fancy as I eventually want to make it, but at least it's hooked up to the right address now. It's www.paigewalkerphotography.com/blog I added a newborn/kid session from yesterday. People can at least get a good idea of how my style is even though the blog isn't very cute yet. I love color! I also love pictures with a vintage look. Kind of on opposite sides of the spectrum, but that's what I like!

My new blog is up, sort of. It's under the wrong address right now, but you can still take a peek. It doesn't have my logo and it doesn't have much of anything yet, but it's a small start. Right now www.paigewalkerphotography.com will take you to my blog, it is supposed to take you to my website, so that will be tomorrow's lovely task. Later you can just go to my website and click on my blog link, or go to www.paigewalkerphotography.com/blog, but who knows when?
