O Where, O Where... (And The King's Speech)

O where, o where did January go?

The first month of the year is already done. Gone. Not to be repeated. Does this seem odd to anyone else? I mean, weren't we JUST sitting down for Christmas dinner?

So what exactly did I accomplish this month? Good question. Despite being up to my elbows in learning this photography biz, I managed to read four books:

Twenty Boy Summer The Role of a Lifetime Vampire Academy Signature Edition: A Vampire Academy Novel Across the Universe

I enjoyed ALL of them, so this has been a great start to a new reading year! I've reviewed them on Goodreads--link on my sidebar.

Also this month, I jumped into the world of boutique photography. *update-->boutique photography is basically where a model is sent products in exchange for photos of said products being worn. It's usually up to the parent of the model to find a photographer and get the images back to the boutique within a week or two, and some boutiques have certain models and photographers they prefer.  I didn't know what it was until a couple week ago either, but it's OH so fun! And, that's probably not the official name for it, but that's what I'm calling it!*

Check out my precious first client modeling a hair clip from Cleverly Cute. 

She's one busy little model, and I'm happy to say she's bringing me more business from other boutiques requesting that she model their products and that I take the pictures. Very exciting! 

As far as writing goes, I definitely haven't written 1k words a week, but I have made some progress! And I have some "writing dates" lined up where we will do that 1 hour timed writing exercise, so I'm looking forward to that!

February promises great things, even though I will be turning yet another year closer to 30.  Maybe if you're all good bloggers, a birthday giveaway could be in your future.... 

Just saw The King's Speech. If you haven't, GO SEE IT... RIGHT NOW!  Colin Firth is INCREDIBLE.  The Oscar most definitely goes to him.  Well. Done.   



  1. ohman! i want to see the king's speech so bad!! your model is gorgeous- but i'm not sure if i know what boutique photography is! looks like some great books! and jiminey christmas! i have NO IDEA where january went!!!!

  2. January flew by. I meant to do so many things, but intentions don't mean doodle. I'll try harder this month.

    Great photo. What a cute model. These boutique gigs sounds like fun. And those books you read look awesome. I just got Across the Universe and I can't wait to read it. =o)

  3. Oh! I'm dying to see The King's Speech.

    And, yeah, January flew by like *that*. And with February being so short, I'm worried it will be another "blink and it's gone" month.

  4. That's a really great photo! And the model is so freaking cute I feel like gushing... I will refrain. :P
