I feel like I may need a t-shirt that says ‘I survived last week.’ Things were humming along and looking great and THEN I got a bee-sting while I was at the beach doing photo sessions on Tuesday. Thankfully, one of my clients was there to help me get the stinger out of my finger. By that evening my finger started to swell. No biggie, just a little bit uncomfortable. I worked away on the computer and woke up the next day unable to bend my finger…every couple hours the swelling moved down my hand, so I decided to see a doctor. Of course this was after the pool party at my house and shooting a line of clothing. So, I got steroids to help with the swelling and went to the next group of photo sessions on the beach on Thursday. Fast forward to Sunday and I had done almost 30 mini sessions at Rascals to Rebels, hosted a few more dinner parties and my finger was back to normal.
It’s amazing how a tiny little bee affected my week so much! I was trying to stay on top of my editing because this week, I’m taking some time off to hang with my family. All that work last week was worth it. I’m all caught up (for the moment!) and loving life with the use of all my fingers.
Speaking of parties!!! Every so often I get to photograph the birthday parties of one of my clients. I’ve been photographing Chloe for over a year, so when her mom asked me to document her 4th birthday party at the aquarium, I felt like a proud auntie!
This was such a fun place for a party! They kept the kids moving the whole time from one fun activity to the next. Chloe had a blast and with her adorable expressive personality, gave me one fantastic shot after the next!
