Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Should I stay or should I go?

In my past life (pre-SAHM days) I was a dietitian. I'm still maintaining my registration status even though I'm not currently working in the clinical field. I've been getting the itch to do more "professional" stuff lately but I really don't have the time to go back to my private counseling practice. I've been selling my educational materials and forms and have been contemplating whether I want to try and sell my food and nature photography.

There is a conference coming up in 3 weeks that allows it's members to display their products for sale. This would give me excellent exposure to a lot of other nutritionists. So I've bit the bullet, am taking a risk and going for it! I've rented a booth and will display my educational materials...and my photography! My friends/colleagues say they love my images and would love to hang them in their offices when I start selling them but I need some real honest opinions (I mean, they may just be nice to me because they know me and don't want to hurt my feelings).

So I need your cc! Do these images suck? Should I forget the whole thing? Am I rockin' it? I want to get a postcard made to hand image on one side with my info on the back...a big "business card" so to speak. I've come up with these 5 ideas...what do you think?

The collage is going to be a poster (and also gives a glimpse of some of my images). Thoughts? I'll still working on assembling the rest of the images for the portfolio and will put some of them up here later.

So...should I stay home and keep working on it or should I go to Philly????

Oh my I really like it. The blueberries and blackberries look good enough to eat hehe! Seriously it would make even my kids want fruit you did wonderful and I really like the collage my only little tweak would be the one box with the font down in the corner looks a little off to me jmo. Overall it is wonderful!
