modeling letdown


too late
Originally uploaded by mlee.etsy.com
There was a call for models at this high end sling company in NYC that I heard about over the weekend. It was for the end of August so I knew that I was entering late and my chances were slim. But it was an excuse to get nice photos taken.

Well as soon as the skies cleared for a brief moment my friend with a D-SLR camera went out with me and took some photos. Among around 300 there were about 10 or 12 good ones and this spectacular one. (I need to start saving for a D-SLR as of yesterday)

Of course as soon as we get home an email is waiting for me saying that the modeling positions are full at this time. That they would love to use my photos in their gallery and will keep me in mind for the future. But no free expensive Psling for me this month. That is okay, could it possibly get any better than this one that I already have? I like this photo a lot.

I'm still listing new art on Etsy at a somewhat sluggish pace considering how much I have to put up. The custom and another order have been mailed out and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself artistically. When in doubt cut collage paper or tear printmaking paper. Or maybe even do some carving! I have a block I need to finish. Sketching sounds good too.

Oh and did I mention that blee is finally crawling? Eep! Now the fun really begins.

what a sweet picture! I love it. I'm saving for a SLR too--I just paid a photographer $ (even with a discount) to photograh some of my clothes--I think it might be worth a better camera and a few lessons to pick up photography if I keep doing this stuff!

Very sweet picture! I tried to carry B in a sling, but he's too darned heavy for me no matter what I do. The fact that he paws at my face and pulls my hair doesn't help much.

I've been carrying her for so long I guess I have just built up my muscles because her 21lbs are no big deal for me. But for really long hikes I do use a two shouldered carrier.

I haven't used a stroller in months.

And the saving for a D-SLR fund has begun!

Oh and miss blee has learned not to grab while being worn. But I don't push my luck and wear necklaces or dangly earrings!

That's is an absolutely beautiful picture of you two. Of course it is because the two of you are gorgeous. Too bad about the modeling spots, though. Can't believe miss blee's almost 1!

Lovely video - she's simply gorgeous!

And it's so difficult to believe she's nearly 1......
