Dominican Republic Trip & March Facebook Cover Images

Personal

I am notoriously terrible for creating a black hole of personal pictures.

Remember how I went to Scotland? Black hole.
Ocean City, MD? Black hole.
Ziplining? Black hole.
Atlantic City? Black hole.
Delaware Water Gap? Black hole.
Poconos? Black hole.

Those are just this past year. I bring my camera on adventures and of course I feel compelled to document things but then comes the editing. I can’t bring myself to edit personal pictures when there is so much more I should be doing: emails, marketing, editing for clients, phone calls, meetings, weddings, engagements, families, card designs, blog posts, etc.

Why edit them at all? A picture doesn’t feel finished until it’s been edited. (I’d never hand over raw client images – the image is only half way there!) I’ll take some casual people shots on my phone and post them on Facebook but I just can’t do that when I’ve been on some great trip, saw new, exciting things, and came home with a memory card full of stuff.

In the spirit of trying to be better, here are some snapshots from a recent trip to the Dominican Republic. It was a fantastic time and I worked hard to be “in the moment” and only used my little, green point-and-shoot camera instead of my big, professional one. I breezed through a few in Lightroom so that I could share.

(Because I know you weren’t sure – I’m the smaller shadow.)

There is only so much we could do at the resort (we quickly checked off marveling at paradise, getting burnt, drinking lots of sugary rum drinks, listening to the waves, playing ‘guess the accent,’ getting a couple’s massage, and finishing a book).  On day 3 we took a trip to San Pedro for horeseback riding and views outside of the landscaped and manicured complex.

Fields and fields of tall sugar cane.

The other big export next to sugar is tobacco. We visited a cigar factory.

On day 4 we traveled to Saona Island.  With a stop at a tourist shopping compound, we took a bus to a speedboat to spend a day basking, drinking more rum and coke, and watching the clear water lap against the white sand before returning on a catamaran full of partying Europeans.

The last day there we traveled around Santo Domingo, the capital. This is a city that has more history in its little finger than all of Pennsylvania (and that’s saying something).

The past few months have been nuts. I fractured my ankle at the Multiple Sclerosis MuckRuckus event in early June. I’ve been quite ornery about the fact that I’m still not allowed to run. You runners will appreciate how painful it has been that I haven’t been able to get out and run for the past two months. I have had some awesome couples that were so sympathetic when I showed up in a lovely, hot, clunky boot for their weddings. Speaking of, I’ve had an absolute glut of shoots. The weddings have been incredible. I’m working on cranking them out and there are so many more gorgeous events to post so check back often – they will blow you ...

August Facebook Cover Images
We bought a house in June. After moving around all my life (28 addresses at last count), I am thrilled to put down roots and have a permanent base (I still plan on as many adventures as possible). This is crazy and exciting and terrifying and amazing all wrapped up in one big, expensive package. We have professionals doing the especially skilled labor (taking down walls, putting up walls, adding a spiral staircase, stuff with electricity, plumbing, gas/oil, and 100 other things). We took on a task that took approximately 5x longer than we originally expected and though it’s nowhere near perfect, we’re pretty proud of ourselves: we painted ...

April Facebook Cover Images
I love April. Sure, there may be a few days of surprises (I don’t think I’ll ever forget Carolyn and Jeremy’s torrential downpour wedding) but we’re finally over this lion/lamb business and will most assuredly see real spring soon.Do you hear that? Those are birds chirping as I’m typing this. The sun is up in the mornings again. I no longer need to wear 10 layers to go outside. There are buds on everything. The crocuses came up a few weeks ago and I’m seeing daffodils everywhere.For someone who despises the cold, this is my happy time. The year is turning around and the earth is opening up. I can run outside, I can put away my sweater ...
