Why Do My Photos/Album Take So Long? (and some freebies)

I found this blog post from the wonderful Anne Ruthmann, and I found it to be so helpful and informative for clients.  Since she explains the process so much more eloquently than I ever could, I am just linking the article here.  

Now, for some freebies!  The Wedding Chicks' site is chock full of great info and ideas for planning your perfect wedding.  I found 2 really neat ideas there, and free templates to DIY!  Enjoy!

My Little Brother is a Doctor of Jazz!

Well, he will be soon anyway. Here are a few pics from a fall trip to University of Illinois for his Doctoral Recital. Although being cramped in the car with my parents and 2 kids for the 5 hour drive (up one day, back the next) was less than wonderful, it was worth it to see him play. Little Connor was enthralled--at one point, she walked right up to David while he was playing, and just stood there and stared and smiled, and he played right to her. It was a very sweet moment. On the way back, we took a detour to Kickapoo State Park, a beautiful jewel of an area surrounded by pretty much nothing but cornfields.

The frustrations of being a photographer's child...

Here's my bro!

His teacher, Jim Pugh--one of the foremost trombone players in the country.  He plays with Steely Dan!

The amazingly talented Christian Tamburr on vibes...

A few shots around the University of Illinois, and some architecture from one of the music buildings where David studies.
