Weekend Photoshoot

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to take part in something pretty stinking cool...at least in my mind anyway.

As most of you know, I'm a self-proclaimed "blog 'ho".  I read a ton of blogs.  I use Google Reader and have 78 blogs listed.  Thankfully, not all of them post daily or else I'd never have time to read them all.  Several of them are China adoption blogs.  And I have them all separated into different categories.  One of the categories is called "Classics". 

The blogs I put in "Classics" are those that I have been reading the longest and are pretty widely read blogs.  You'll remember a while back, I had asked for prayers for a little boy named Stellan.  Stellan was the son of the author of one of my Classic blogs written by MckMama. If you are interested in Stellan's miraculous story, you can go directly to MckMama's blog or just use the search function at the top of my blog and link over through my Stellan posts.

Anyway, MckMama's blog is probably one of the first, if not the first, that I ever read.  It is the sole reason for my blog reading addiction!  MckMama also does photography.  Well, she is taking about 6 weeks with her family in an RV to travel around.  She's stopping in several major cities to do photoshoots.

Well, guess what city she was in this weekend?  NASHVILLE!  I totally jumped on the opportunity to sign up.  It was a quick session, but MckMama is just as cool and friendly in person as she is on her blog.  I felt like I was talking to someone famous!  I can't wait to see the pictures.  The weather was very nice, but WINDY...so it will be interesting to see how they turned out. 

I tried to take the low key approach letting everyone wear what they wanted and not trying to match colors etc.  I didn't make a big deal over my or Jenna's hair which is a good thing since the wind destroyed it anyway.  Jenna had a bit of a fake smile in some of them.

MckMama uses LOTS of color, so I am anxious to see what she does with us.  As soon as I have them, I'll be sure to post them, so stay tuned....
