Snow Day

View from my Window 1/30/2010  Polaroid 250

It snowed in Memphis yesterday.

Crazy. I know.

I had a “snow day” from my job. Not wanting to be completely unproductive, I used my time stuck indoors to do some Shoot With Personality upkeep! It’s occurred to  me that there’s a huge gap in the work I’ve produced, and the amount of work that can be seen on this site. There are photos that I meant to blog about at the time they were taken, but never got round to thus never showcased here. Or photos of bands from my hardcore/punk photography days that haven’t been around since the old version of Shoot With Personality. So some things from recent times and from times past are now going to be shown in SWP galleries.

• 13 or so new banners in rotation for the “randomized” photo banner at the top of the SWP homepage! (I forgot how fun these are to make, so I’ll be doing more ASAP!)

• Galleries updated: food photography, people, [live] band photography, art photography [and everything else], Polaroids (and other instant film photography)

• New gallery added: photos of musicians

Thanks for noticing me!

How pleased am I that a snapshot I took of my boss was made Picture of the Day at the Main Street Journal?!

(very pleased.)

Don’t forget to visit The “Amanda Loves” project while I’m working on new posts and features for Shoot With Personality!

Friendly Plugs for Friends: Sexy Breakfast

It’s a new year and I think I’m going to have a new feature on here, where I give plugs/endorsements for things my friends do. I have talented people in my life, so why not spread the word?

The inspiration for this feature is: My friend Ashley and her Sexy Breakfast line.

Ashley and I worked together at the photo studio (in different departments.) She drew my name in the Secret Santa game. This was PERFECT, as it turns out. She knows I’m a baker and love cute things, she MAKES cute things. She gave me this!

I love love love gingham and I love lavendar. What’s not to love about this apron then?

Sexy Breakfast gets it’s name because, well, Ashley makes some tongue-in-cheek “suggestive” items. I feel like getting an apron with grapes on it in wasn’t TOO scandalous for me. So I’m pretty glad that’s the one she gave me!

Ashley’s Sexy Breakfast shop on Etsy is a bit under construction at the moment, but please do visit the Sexy Breakfast page on Facebook and keep checking the Etsy shop for available items!

Also please check out my new year-long photo project, which I’m showcasing in a blog dedicated to the project:
