How Should I Go About This?

So ya'll know that I've fallen in love with my camera. Next to reality trashy tv, it's one of the best things invented. I've always loved taking pictures and lately, I've been wanting to start my own photography business.

How does one do that? I'm not being a smart ass either. I really want to take portraits and family photos for other people. Others in addition to my own family of course. I think they're getting tired of being Mama's focus.

I'm thinking about starting a website, getting some cards made to hand out to family and friends, that kind of stuff. Maybe they'll give the card to a friend and them to a friend, etc. I just don't know.

Help. Advice please. Thanks.

um yeah that cartoon baby is lookin kinda long and skinny now.. and it looks like a conehead from snl..

well you can ask sarah for advice about the photography stuff.. i don't know how well you know her though.. her website is www.vinspiredphotography.com i think she "bought" the layout from someone? and just uploads all the info? she didn't actually design the flash herself.. i know it takes up a LOT of her time.. doing the photoshoots and editing photos.. and i know she hasn't had a lot of experience with posing people and her last clients wanted more posing.. so you might want to take a class or something? i hate suggesting things to her because i feel like she takes it so personally.. but i do have a graphics and photography background.. i only want to help!!!

Taking the pictures wasn't the problem it was processing and payments. We have a processing place in OK that handles all of that for us.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…

Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.
