ArtBra KC

I am very excited to be a part of ArtBra KC this year.  I will be the female photographer "behind the scenes" as the models get ready for their big runway moment!!!  All of the models are breast cancer survivors.

I made two bras for the event... we'll see if either gets chosen to be worn or if they will be part of the silent auction.

This one is called "Just Google It"

And I can't remember what I named this one.

Going Backward to Move Forward

I had intended to blog about my progress on the World's Largest Knitted Tree all summer, but that didn't happen.

I didn't document the roots that I knitted during the many performances we watched of Shakespeare in the Park... both productions were amazing.  I had big ideas of photographing the knitted roots among real tree roots... but the temperatures of over 100 for weeks on end kind of put a damper on that.

The series of photos on the left are from the day I cast on for the trunk.  We were on our way to a Sporting KC game (note the long line of traffic).

I am still  surprised they let me in Livestrong Sporting Park with the size 35 needles.

By the end of the game I had a pretty great start.  Knitting in public always brings about great conversations with curious people. 

That's my favorite thing about K.I.P.  People feel safe to ask, "What are you making?"  I am sure they never in their wildest dreams think the answer is going to be... "I'm knitting a tree!"

Embarking on a Tree

I am knitting a tree. I have started this post and dumped it too many times. I don't know where to begin to tell you about this project. In some ways, it started long ago when I was a wee child... I have always loved trees. They remind me of people and I love how they are all unique. But I really don't have time to go into all that. I am knitting a massive tree and I have a deadline.

New Office Manager

Himsmostpretty is my new office manager. Now that I have decided to start my own photography business, hims has been very helpful, mostly chewing up post-it-notes that have made their way to the ground. (If I haven't returned your call, this may be why.)

Today Tank will be helping me with some important things:

1.) starting a new blog for my photography business

2.) getting the girls ready for soccer (hims already has brought me one of their shinguards.)

3.) making list for afternoon photo shoot

4.) chewing up post-it-notes

Kelly Moore Bags

It's camera time, folks! Now that I have the "gear" it's time to get the bag. Not just any bag... but the bag of my dreams. I really want a bag that doesn't look like a camera bag. It's got to be functional and fashionable. It's got to be affordable. I googled "cool camera bag" which led me to these fabulous bags, the Kelly Moore Bags. The hardest part is choosing which one I really really want... cause I really really want all of them. The design is so smart for each bag... not only multi-purpose, but user friendly. The website is even brilliantly designed, with little video demos of each bag ... Kelly describes each bag in detail and the thought process behind each one. Now... back to kellymoorebag.com so I can decide and get my order in!!!
