Friday Five: Ellen, GPA and Photoshoots

It's Friday the 13th!  Are you superstitious?  I am not.  Though now I can't help but wonder if I jinxed myself by saying all of that!   Welcome to Friday 5, easy way to end the week by sharing 5 thoughts and 5 pictures from the week.

5 Thoughts
1. Three down one to go-- what am I talking about, photo shoots this week.  This is by far the most photoshoots I have ever had in in one week.  Two newborns, a toddler Christmas card shoot and a family shoot on Saturday!  Now my goal is to get all of the pictures edited before we take off for Thanksgiving, wish me luck.

2. This week both Lucas and Alex received citizenship and academic awards.  In third grade they don't do GPA yet, but those with good grades get the Leader of the Pack award.  Starting in 4th, it is the whole GPA and honor roll thing.  Lucas was once again on the Principle's honor roll.  Very proud of my kids!

3. Tuesday night Ryder's soccer practice almost got cancelled as it was 'too cold'.  It was 54 when I got to practice.  Yes, here in SoCal we are wimps.  I will admit it was cold though, I had my jacket and was wrapped up in a blanket while he practiced.

4. I had such an awesome time at the Ellen show this week-- told you all about it in yesterday's post-- today I had fun watching it on TV, I spotted myself a few times.

5. My house is a total mess- my living room transforms into my studio- and with three shoots in it this week, let's just say it hasn't been put back yet and the rest of the house has suffered in the process; so when I am not editing pictures I will be cleaning.  Anyone want to come help?

And I am cheating and doing six pictures as I can't leave out yesterday's shoot!

What is your Friday five this week?


  1. We head into soccer season at the beginning of December and my only hesitation each year is the fact that it is always so cold! They don't cancel though but it'll be 40s and 50s for most practices and games. UGH.

  2. Holidays are crazy for photographers! We did our family photos in August, rather than October, to avoid the crazy rush. (Plus I was a little thinner in August.) ;)

  3. I love those photos of you with the kids, so cute!! Thanks for the great shoot this week.
