sorry about the rant

my husband thinks that i am just going to complain on this site, so forgive the previous post -

i added a blog for some of my photos, just so that i could have a sort of online portfolio for others to view. i just got fired for a wedding shoot that i was supposed to do in december, i think they just didn't want to pay but that is okay. the money would have been nice but it is a stressful thing shooting weddings!


so, as many of you know - i hate myself right now for gaining so much weight in the past 2 years. but if one more person comes up to me and either asks if i am pregnant or worse (as happened today at church) tells me i look pregnant! i am going to come all kind of unspooled on them!

i had an older sister who has recently moved back to the ward for the 3rd time since they got back tell me i look pregnant even though she knows i am not (which is more worse than before!) and then proceeds to say how i glow. if i was glowing before from happiness it has since switched to anger at how rude she is for not only saying it, but persisting in her efforts to find me out to tell me how incredibly fat i am! i think she should just come up and say "wow ann, you really are packing on the pounds! it amazes me how adept you are at gaining weight! i have never known anyone who could do it as well as you can!"

dru said that the next time she mentions it i should ask if she is taking etiquette lessons. i don't think i have the guts for that!

we're back!

the cruise was a good time!

we went horseback riding on the beach in Cabo and saw 'La Bufadora' in Ensenada. Jake has decided that he needs a horse and we found that no matter where he is - Kyle will manage to add to the harem of girls who are attracted to him.

i walked down the street to the resale shop on my lunch break to find a black skirt to wear on the cruise we are leaving for on saturday and they didn't have a single one!
i did manage to find some jeans that are 7's and they actually looked good (if anything can right now) on me. but they were severely distressed and i thought it would look like i was trying way too hard to be cool. plus as far as i know those are so last season! anyway, i just needed to vent about how there are no black skirts to be had anywhere - at least at Macy's, Target, or ACT II. and i hate myself for getting so fat again and i plan on really hitting the diet/exercise hard when we get back from the cruise, but i am so worried about being judged for how fat i am while we are there cruzin'.

another wedding

every time i get asked to photograph another wedding, i say this is the last time. so, here it is the last time again....

each time though i get a shot that is unexpected and that the bride and groom may not like, but i love -

then i go and take a shot that i have seen someone else do and i hate it and think the bride and groom will like it -
