I'm happy

Yes, I'm happy but I will regret posting this picture in the morning. For some reason it just makes me laugh so hard... it would be a shame to not share my big forehead with you.

I'm happy because today marks the second birthday of Blue Lily Photography.

Isn't that amazing? 

To celebrate, Tyler and I are off to shoot a wedding in Vegas this weekend. This wedding promises to be more than awesome, and even though we haven't even taken the pictures I'm excited to show them to you. 

But first, let's go back to April 9th, 2007.

I launched a website in hopes that I could book about 2-3 sessions a month, for fun.  My friends and family were really, really supportive, and very good at spreading the word about the new Blue Lily. Back then, I was obsessed with photography.

Fast forward to today, April 9th, 2009.

I have a totally different website (with awesome music, To Build a Home by the Cinematic Orchestra; causing me to receive about 20 emails a week asking who the artist is), I book about 40 sessions a month, and my friends and family and now my clients are still doing a fantastic job of spreading the word! Now I'm triple obsessed with photography, I get to travel around the nation, and I love what I'm doing.

YAY for Blue Lily!

Here are some other things I plan on doing this weekend to celebrate B.L's 2nd birthday:

Eat lots of cake

Buy myself lots of presents

Buy lots of camera gear- Blue Lily needs presents too

Not clean up my room 

Not do the dishes

Eat fish tacos at Rubios (totally obsessed with these things now)

Wear my pants unsnapped for maximum comfort

Not brush my hair ( I don't do this anyway, why start now?)

Not clean out all the junk and kid mess in the car

Laugh at my ridiculous portrait at the top of this post

Daydream about doing photography sessions in Ireland

Daydream about how cool it would be to have an Irish accent

Ponder about why people with accents are so much hotter than the rest of us



Thing is... I'm not quite ready because I've got to have my Blue Lily Facebook page ready, and... it's not. I have a love/hate relationship with FB.

So... Stay tuned. Monday I'll hold the giveaway.

You can win either a photo sesh or $150 to the store of your choice.
