Little Things in the Busy Times

The past week has been very busy around here, keeping up with school, meals, chores and doing it solo while my husband was on travel.  Hurray, he is back home!!!

Right now, along with the normal keeping up with life, I've got a commercial shoot in the works. I'll be doing a photoshoot for an Italian aircraft manufacturer. This is new territory for me, so I've been up at the local airport honing my skills. Capturing the technical details are a bit uninspiring to my creative soul, so I had to try and add some "artsy" to the subject. I love sunflares! They warm my soul. This job will put a nice size chunk into my fundraising efforts for our Uganda trip!   My hubby lined the job up for me and thankfully he has some great ideas for it, and will help me pull it off.  I love his enthusiasm and confidence in my hobby and skills. 
Another activity this week has been baking, made from scratch fresh pies.  This is also part of our fundraising for our trip.  Fresh pies and fruit have become a common sight in our kitchen this week.  On this note, I need to take time to read up on food photography.  This is an area my skills are sorely lacking in. 

Since I've been too busy and/or lazy to pull out the big camera, I am thankful for all the moments I've captured with my iphone, which you've probably already seen if you follow me on instagram.
