I Don’t Always Take My Own Advice…

Any time a parent asks me if she should get her child’s hair cut before a photo session, I tell her, “no”. More often then not, haircuts don’t go well and there isn’t much of a quick fix for “too-short bangs”.

So, what do I do the day before Lindsay and I scheduled to have our photos taken (p.s. we scheduled the session, and took the photos ;) I CUT MY BANGS! I don’t know what, or even IF, I was thinking! I’ve had bangs for quite a while and trim them often-don’t like them in my eyes. And, I never mess them up-they’re bangs, not a perm. So, how in the world did I manage to cut them so short?! It’s the photo session curse of the cut!

I wore sunnies in a couple of our photos and turns out I liked this one the best, so you can’t REALLY tell, but I’ll always giggle now every time I have a client ask about getting a hair cut before the session. Maybe I should take my own advice!


Furry Tid Bit

A friend and I were talking about our local farmer’s market last night when kiwi’s came up. I didn’t know they are a winter fruit and was really excited to buy a bag of them for $3 yesterday under the freeway. We talked about how great kiwi’s are, but peeling them was annoying making it easier to choose an apple or grapes in a pinch. Then he laid it out for me,
“Did you know you can eat the peel?”
“Hu? Come again?”
“Yep, if you can cut off the tough end pieces, and eat the rest.”

And so, I tried it today and…it’s true…and so furry fun!


Re-Design Complete!

Made it through the redesign and are feeling GOOD! It’s been a process, that’s for sure. Have you ever had a great idea? I mean, a really great idea! And as soon as you get it started, you realize it is going to take so. much. longer. that you ever expected? That’s been the experience with Tickled. Don’t get me wrong-it’s been incredible! And getting to work with all these talented photographers is so exciting. I just have a new-found appreciation for anyone starting a business, internet or otherwise. Kudos to all of you out there who make multi-tasking and sleep-deprivation look so easy!
