Random Mini-Updates

Articles for Model Insider
So it looks like I’ll be writing some articles for www.modelinsider.com at some point.  Both some new content, and converting some of my blogs into articles.  Neato! :) Should be really awesome.  Articles I write for them, I’ll likely partially post here and link there, so ya’ll can read them… but I gotta see what the agreements are and whatnot.

Print at Bridal Shop
Took a print that Laura Ann made for the bridal shop I got my wedding dress at, Doris Bridal in Highwood, IL.  They were beyond thrilled to have the matted print, are looking at framing it, and will display it in their shop :) Laura and Christin (the HS/MUA who rocked the shoot) will both send them business cards to have on hand as well.  Pretty sweet!  Here’s the shot:

Workshops Galore!
This weekend marks the start of what will hopefully be
a lengthy course of workshops through 2010 and beyond.  Not including, of course, the first modeling workshop from last year whenever… but yea.  I’ve partnered with Studio 2 Imaging in Lake Zurich to do workshops, and we’re starting out with Boudoir Bootcamp, which is designed to help photographers looking to get into the boudoir market make their clients look their absolute best.  The following weekend I’m working with photographer Jim Jurica to bring “Makeup for Photoshoots” to models and photographers interested in learning how to apply makeup specifically for shoots.  Both will be great, and at this point we’re planning on doing a second Boudoir Bootcamp, because space is limited at Studio 2 and there are a lot of interested folks.

If you’re interested in reading more about the workshops, getting updates on when we’re doing more, and even RSVPing to the “Makeup for Photoshoots” one (RSVPs are still open), check out the MeetUp group I’m an Organizer of, Chicago ‘Burbs Mayhem.

Long-Awaited Honeymoon
Looks like Hubby and I are finally going to get to take a honeymoon :) Thanks to the generosity of both sets of our parents, we’ve got a flight to and from Hawaii and a week at a resort in Maui!  Wooo!  Keep an eye out for EDS sets based on that trip (I know, I’m behind)!

The 365 Portrait Project
Someone made mention of this project, which is essentially taking a portrait a day for a year.  I think I’m going to start this at some point soon.  Self-portraits.  Going to be fun methinks :) I just gotta wait until… sometime not now. Our “little” camera is on the fritz, so I’m thinking of picking up a P&S for the honeymoon, as a surprise to Hubby.
