That’s right folks. I’m not even hungover. My brain however, was stuffed with so my information and sensory input yesterday that I might have been a bit overzealous when I got up this morning. See, yesterday was A – My Birthday and B – the Party of 5 workshop with Becker. My birthday was cool because well, I get to be a rock star for a day. Clint was super sweet, got me a funny card and left chocolates in all kinds of random places around the house for me. There’s one on the ceiling and one on the ceiling fan that I’ll have to move some furniture to get to. And in case anyone is curious, I have now gone around the sun 29 times. If you’re in Fort Collins on May 3rd and would like to come to a birthday party, send me an email.
So I got up this morning at 6:30am, my mind spinning with all the things I need to do that I learned yesterday. The first being to move my website from the Light Heart domain to photocg.co. Move some files around, re-install WordPress… cake. Except that these things should not be done before coffee. So, I deleted the whole thing, sat there for a minute processing what I had just done. And then decided that the new one I make will be better anyway. So, I may post some of the old photos now and then because they had good stories or I just miss the old posts.
Now, the Party of 5 with Becker… needless to say, it was amazing. It was a casual, conversational atmosphere. Becker, who I described as “the single-named rock star wedding photographer,” was unguarded and generous with his stories and knowledge. He was also goofy, funny, and irreverent. I cracked up at almost all of his jokes, because they were so unexpected and off the wall—even the really bad jokes were funny.
Here’s a picture of us shooting a faux engagement session.
And my favorite shot from the session:
And the we all took turns taking headshots of Becker, and he took headshots of us. Here’s my favorite of Becker, sepia-toned, ’cause that’s how he likes to give ’em:
We all had a great time, learned a lot, and now have lots of work to do. Thank you, Kim, for hosting us. And big THANKS to Becker for, well, for being himself.
