I experienced such a cool thing on my way back from my shoot in Ripley on Saturday. At the Brown County Rural Water Reserve there were 3 photographers posted up outside the gates with tripods and telephoto lenses. Me being super nosey, I pulled over and asked what was going on. There was an eagle in the tree straight ahead with 3 little babies in it's nest! How freaking cool is that? My mom LOVES eagles, so I had to get out my camera, sans telephoto lens, embarrassingly enough, and at least try to get something for her to see! One of the photographers, who was a super nice man, let me use his extra telephoto lens to try and get a good shot. I was so grateful! I thought that was a really nice thing for him to do, considering I just met him. Anyways, my photos turned out ok, not as sharp as I would like, which is even more incentive for me to get that new camera I have been dying for. I WILL get a new one as soon as I close on my new house :)
Anyways, I am going on vacation this weekend with my fiance for our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY. I am so excited, especially after today. Today I had quite the scare. I took my puppy for a walk at a park to wear her out, since it was the first day we left her out of her crate while we were gone. I had hopes for her to sleep a lot so she wouldn't be bored. To the point, on the way back she got really into sticking her head out the window and letting the wind hit her face and blow her precious little white fur back. She got so excited that she decide to jump out the window of the car while I was driving 40 mph. Luckily, she landed in the grass and was ok, but I was not. Basket-freaking-case! I can't believe she did that, and I can't believe she managed to be ok.
But before I go on vacation, I am super excited to photograph two new little ones, a newborn and a 4 year old :) Love meeting new clients!
Hoping tomorrow is relaxing.
