APAD- Day 150- Memory of Max

I've seen this toy squirrel in this photographer's bag before at another sporting event but didn't have the chance to ask him about it until now. The photographer is from out of town and when he use to make the trip to Austin for assignments, his dog Max would join him for the car ride up. Max unfortunately passed away to cancer at just 4 years old and the photographer was devastated over his loss. As a memorial to Max he now carries Max's favorite toy in his camera bag to continue their trips together to Austin.

APAD- Day 148- First Encounter

Anyone who has been in our house has probably seen our "How we meet" picture frame. It started out in the kitchen but eventually made its way into a free space onto our bathroom wall.

APAD- Day 147- Benchwarmers

The doggie daughter and her dad sit on a bench while taking advantage of the break in the rain showers.

APAD- Day 146- Nada

The day started out with a big thunderstorm rolling through town, which resulted in me savoring the morning and sleeping in! It basically was gloomy and rained all day and my motivation level just wasn't feeling it. So today photo is nothing... I didn't muster up the creativity to shoot anything! Whoops!

APAD- Day 145- Traditions

I help second shoot a wedding and the bride and groom threw a fantastic non-traditional wedding. The bride asked me to shoot a purse that her grandmother who could not attend had sent for her on her wedding day. It contained something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. It even contained a sixpence for your shoe. (which I had never heard of!) Although the grandmother couldn't find a sixpence coin she put some change in the purse. So cute and sweet!

APAD- Day 140- Backed Up Memories

I found my folders of backed up files from 2004- 2011! I use to burn everything as a 2nd form of back up to my hard drives. Then as file sizes got larger (and I switched to RAW), I went from burning 2-6 shoots per DVD disc to burning 1 assignment to 1-3 DVD discs!

Then I tapered off around 2011... a few months ago I dropped a hard drive and lost basically everything from 2013 and some things from the beginning of this year. Needless to say, 2nd back ups are coming back... at least for the more important shoots!

APAD- Day 139- Hidden Pantry

We live in an awesome 1940's home. It's cute, very cute and unfortunately very limited on storage space! Most walls have a window, a door or both. That coupled with small closets and cabinets we always find ourselves with overflowing shelves and cabinets.

I have been on a home renovation kick and while browsing pinterest I came across a photo of a hidden, rollaway pantry that someone had come up with. At the time, I didn't have access to the original blog and built it based off the the picture and winged it to fit our house.

The original creators were from Classy Clutter and their blog post instruction is here.

APAD- Day 134- Goofy Catch

I initially was going to use a regular one of her snout with mud on it, but Stephen liked this one more than the other one. So a silly capture of Hazel during a mid lick.
