Back to School, Back to School…

My oldest two kids have been in school for a couple weeks not, and my little man had High Five Open House the other night at his preschool. Do you know what this means for you guys?! There is a chance that after we survive next week of getting my younger two kids back to school and get myself through a 1st grade field trip – there is a glimmer of hope I might have a halfway normal response time to your emails!

Seriously guys – THANK YOU to all of my AMAZING clients that have been so patient with me through this summer. I have loved all the time I have gotten to spend with my kids and family this summer – but at some point – I’ve got to get back to work! It’s been a crazy ride trying to balance everything and I really truly do appreciate how understanding and patient you all have been!

Just a few pics Jax and I stopped and took after open house. I can’t believe how big my little man has gotten – I’m glad he is just as silly as ever though. 🙂 And yes – I was about to make him change the outfit he picked out – and then realized – he is only going to be five once. Rock on Jax.

Omaha Fashion Week Fall 2012

 The other night we had the privilege of going to Omaha Fashion Week’s Swim & Bridal night to shoot for Bloom.com.  I will be honest – at first when they asked me to shoot at OFW I was super excited, then when they said it was swim and bridal night – I was less excited. I’m not big into weddings, and who wants to see a bunch of models run around in swimsuits?!! However – I would totally choose that night again next year! It was amazing.  When you think – Fashion Show – everyone immediately thinks of the clothes – but it is SO much more than that. The hair, the makeup, the accessories, to see how their entire concept came together to best show off their creation – it was unreal. These designers have to have talent that goes so far beyond just coming up with an outfit or running a sewing machine.  I was blown away. The swim lines I saw were incredible – the girls looked stunning. It was such a fun night and something I will definitely try to be more involved with in the Spring.

Before the chaos started – backstage…

The hair alone was worth going to see…
