Love Football games (especially of local teams)

I LOVE going to football games for the local kids. I remember watching my husband play while we were in high school and it was one of my my most fond memories. I have had the honor to be invited to take photos of Glassford Hill Middle School’s 2011 Varsity team and I am having a BALL taking photos of these up and coming tweens and teens!

All of the team photos will be online for sale at my website: http://www.krismazy.com

This week and a few photos shoots

As I am ending my semester and my portfolio class, I am starting to take more and more outdoor portraits. (And since the weather is getting nicer, except for that FREAK snowstorm this last weekend). Here are a few of my latest outdoor portraits. 🙂 I promise soon I will be back to my regularly scheduled programing!!!

Watson Lake, Prescott, AZ

I got a chance to go our to Watson Lake here in Prescott, AZ kidless. I had such a GREAT time hiking around the lake, taking photos with different apertures. I took photos of different local plant life with a view of the gorgeous lake behind it.

This is it! Starting a new chapter today!

Today marks the first day of my semester in school for the fall. I am taking 17 credits this semester. Can I do it? YES!!

Classes include: Journalism, Bio, Chemistry, English and Photography. Some are online, some are hybrid and some are in class. I am looking forward to only having 3 more semesters total for both my FineArts and Photography degrees. Getting there… almost there!! 🙂

Last week, I decided that I needed a “new” look for school… My hair is GONE! 13 inches cut off for donation.

So there it is… Off with her hair!

Lar took my clothes shopping this weekend… much needed clothes shopping. Thank you OVERTIME!!!

Tonight is my first class back this semester with black and white print photography… so looking forward to everything that I am going to learn there as well. I am sure that I will be seeing some familar faces in that class!

I will keep you updated on school and will have some new digital products next week… maybe even a freebie or 2! (yes, I am just teasing you!)

Elly's Photo Shoot

I love taking photos… seriously… why else would I be going back to school to get my Art degree and Photography certificate. It’s even better when you have a subject that WANTS to be there. Elly is always so much fun taking photos of… and the best part is that she will listen and do whatever she is told (without a yucky face).

It had been raining for DAYS and I wanted to take advantage of the cloud cover and some new techniques that I had been reading up on.

Here is her shoot with my Nikon d5000 and the 55-200 lense.

The Simple Things

Sometimes finding the simple things in life is hard – So many of us are running around, schedules full. We need to step back and really view what is important in life. I know… sometimes I have trouble doing this as well – between my school, kids homeschool, my work, Lar’s works, clubs, sports, etc.

Last week we found out that our “lovely” school district cut Lar’s job to make him lose our family insurance. It sickens me that the superintendent did not take a pay cut at all but that’s another story all together.

In light of all of this we thank God every day that Lar has a job in this economy.

He won’t be gone as much – spending more time with family (because he has been reduced from salary to hourly and there won’t be too much overtime)

We are planning more family walks – more snuggle time, more yard sale-ing and more gardening (we have to decorate our new yard).
