Finally it's nice outside.  I'm starting to take pictures again.  It's so great to get out there and use my camera.  I feel a little rusty! Yesterday I had a session with a six month old.  Today I have engagements.  Friday I have two little girls and Saturday I have another set of engagements. Fun Fun!!!

I haven't had a chance to go out and take photos just to take photos in what seems like forever.  There has been no creative foresight into anything I've taken in SOOO long... I haven't went out to take pictures just because or just for fun in months and months.  

I'm going out of town Tuesday.  I'll be back on Wednesday.  I'm going with a friend to look at apartments in the town she just got a job in. (Shes going to be the assistant county attorney in Jackson County, Iowa!  I'm so proud of her!)  I think I'll take my camera with me.  And take some pictures just because.  Of random things.

I'm sorry....

I just wanted to say super quick like.......  I'm WAY behind on going through my devWatch list.  And I haven't said thank you for a LOT of favorites that I've received. I appreciate them but I haven't had time to go through them and then they pile up and become almost unmanageable.  (not that i get that many or anything....  i don't know what i would do if i ever DID become popular.  i wouldn't be able to handle it!!!)  

Eventually I will go through my devWatch list.  So, if I normally comment on your stuff and I haven't in like... a month or two.  It's not because I don't love you!!!  Because I do!!! :)

That's another thing though.. i really need to go through my friends list.  There are SO many people in there, half of which I don't really watch.  I skip over them.  I can't even remember why I watch a lot of them.  So i might do a cut soon.  Then, with a slightly less intimidating watch list I might be more motivated to actually look through it and comment on people's work.

New CAMERA II

I now have in my possession a nice shiny new camera!  I haven't really had a chance to go out and put it to the test yet.  I'm not sure when I will be able to either.  I have class over the next three days and then Sunday it sounds like i might be busy too.  

The camera is a Canon 40D.  I thought that my handy dandy Rebel Xt was a substantial camera but this one makes it look like a toy!  I can't imagine upgrading again without first lifting weights for a few months! ha.

3 Years at dA!

I've been here at dA for three years so I've decided to take a look back at some of my photographs....

The picture with the most views in my gallery comes from a maternity session that I did back in December of last year.  It has the most views because its a naked chick.  Not because its the best picture in my gallery.  The shoot was done in a basement with a sheet and only my on camera flash.  Not the ideal situation.  But Jacklyn is a very pretty girl and she works well as a model!   If you're under 18.. sorry, you can't see!

Mature Content

Jacklyn 01 by panderbear


My three most favorited pictures here on dA are:
Pouty Face by panderbear   Imperfection by panderbear Grumpy Girl by panderbear

Three most commented:
2 Jazmyn 6.12.07 by panderbear She actually drinks Dr. Pepper by panderbear Under Arrest by panderbear

More important than what everyone else likes is what I think are my biggest accomplishments photographically.    Here are some of my favorite shots:

Jordan 01 by panderbear   With those eyes by panderbear   Wedding Shoes by panderbear
Meghan 01 by panderbear   Emily 05 by panderbear   puppet by panderbear
Unceremonius Live 3 by panderbear   Hayden 03 by panderbear   Unceremonius Group 2 by panderbear
Stretch by panderbear   Double Farris Wheel by panderbear   Sunshine by panderbear
Samantha 03 by panderbear   3 Jazmyn 6.12.07 by panderbear   Unceremonius: 5.11.07 by panderbear
Puppy Dog Eyes by panderbear   Adobe Cat by panderbear   Jayden 01 by panderbear


I have 5,967 pageviews.  59 people watch me. (i watch 160!)

Thats my time here in a nutshell.  :)

Life/Watchlist/Anniversary

So, I was in a bit of slump with the whole picture taking thing. I think thats over now.  A combination of beautiful weather, a new lens, and paying photo gigs has jump started my desire to get out there and take pictures.  Woo.  I want to go out and just take some creative "art" type shots soon.  Its just finding the time!  I've been really busy lately.  

I've been thinking of cleaning out my watchlist.  I have a zillion people on it.  Most of which i hardly remember watching.  I skip over a lot of the pictures when looking through my watchlist.  I think having sooo many pictures to go through keeps me from taking the time to actually look at and comment stuff that i actually like.  On the other hand I'll feel bad if I delete people.....

My three year anniversary here at dA is coming up on Tuesday.  I want to do SOMETHING to commemorate it.  I just don't know what!  Any ideas?  Maybe I'll do a little feature of myself here in my journal.  Put up the pictures that I'm most proud?  I dont know. :)   I guess I'll wait and see what I feel like doing on Tuesday!

Well.  Thats it for now.  

Happy picture taking!

I haven't been very active here for awhile now.  Though I do stop by fairly often... I don't stick around long.  I'm sure this will change soon.  I renewed my subscription and that always helps.  I haven't been out to take too many pictures.  I did two senior portrait sessions in September and tomorrow I am taking senior portraits of :icons0rd3n:  I also have a maternity session coming up in the first week of November.  

I haven't felt very creative lately.  I think thats the main reason I haven't been out to take many pictures in awhile.  Nothing seems new and exciting.  I don't want to get too routine with my pictures. Having a certain style is one thing but becoming stagnate is another.   

On a more personal side.  My husband in currently in Iraq.  He is working over there as a mechanic.  He left at the beginning of August and will be gone for a year.  (he gets to come on on vacation though...  2 weeks every 4 months)  I miss him and its been lonely here.  Just me and my furry children.  haha.  Also, I'm going back to school this Monday.  I'm going to get my elementary ed certification so that I can be a teacher.  I already have my BA in psychology but I have yet to do anything even remotely related to my degree.  Classes are two nights a week. I'm excited to start.  Plus being a teacher is going to be perfect... i'll have summers off!  That means I'll be open to do senior portriats and weddings!!!  Wooo.  

Well I suppose thats it for now.   I'll try to do some features soon!!!!

Ode to the Kissy Face!!!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 2, 2007, 10:13 PM
Its that time once again....  time for a journal entry full of some random thing.  This time its not a a flower.  No, this time its Kissy Faces.  I'm sure you all have seen pictures of people making kissy faces.  In fact, you yourself have probably been guilty of doing the kissy face pose when being photographed.  You may even have a kissy face shot hidden away (or even as your default pic) on Myspace.

As I searched for "kissy face" and "pucker up" here on dA I came across many many many not so great pictures.   Lots of snap shots.  Lots of really bad self portraits.  But in the midst of all the stuff that should be on myspace and not dA.... I did find a few cute/cool/interesting pieces of art!  :)

Enjoy!!!

First off a kissy face shot from my gallery!

Ode to the Apple Blossom...

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 30, 2007, 9:22 PM
My subscription runs out in less than an hour....  booooo.  I'm broke so that means no renewal for at least a couple weeks.  (unless anyone wants to take me up as a charity case....  i'm not too proud to beg)  

I figured I'd put up a new pretty journal before I'm unable to.  This journal is going to be all about the apple blossom. They're pretty and they only grace us for a short amount of time.  

First off my apple blossom pictures...
