66 and counting...

I'd already put in my 40 hours for the week by 2pm on Wednesday, but in my line of work there is no pay for overtime. The trade off is that I have the luxury of scheduling photoshoots around my the activities my family has going on. Unfortunately in the summer that pretty much means that one job is scheduled around another job and when I'm not working at that job I'm working on things related to my third job. I'm not writing this to complain - I'm writing this because this is what life in BearCountry is like for me at the moment. It has always been my intention to be real with everyone - to share the good with the bad - the highs and the lows....

When I am overtired and overworked it's challenging to stay positive, but every day I can feel the Lord whispering to me that He knows what He's doing, that this too shall pass, that we are blessed in SO many ways.

Tonight I am at the tail end of some pretty big projects. The biggest is a 400 page blog book for a missionary who just returned from Nepal a few weeks ago. Jenn spent 2 years in Kathmandu and surrounding villages sharing the love of Jesus with everyone around her. It has been an honor to put her words and photographs into print. I'll let you know when you can see a sneak peak of the project via a tweet later tonight.What does a 400 page book look like? Here's a preview of less than half the pages - the most I could get on the screen at one time. I'm looking forward to flying through a few shorter books in the weeks to come after this hefty one!

While 161.2 MB of information is uploading to Blurb.com I will be finishing up the proof sites for a senior session and a large family session from a couple of weeks ago. When that deadline is met around midnight, I'll play around with 600 portraits I took earlier during 2 sessions from this past week (a graduate and then a mom with her two sons). Here are a couple that jumped out at me as they were uploading to my computer. (They are straight out of the camera.) I can't wait to see how they look after a run through photoshop!
That should about do it for one night.

What software do you use for designing your photobooks?

Busy is the middle name of all us mama's, but Man you are busy! Hope things settle out a little bit for you.

I was wondering how you like Blurb Book? I am getting ready to put together a book and I am debating between Blurb and My Publisher, but I want a book with a photo cover, not a book jacket. What do you think? How is Blurb to use?

Thanks! ;)
