It’s time for another installment of Fame & Shame. Labor Day Weekend is approaching and I’m getting ready to go on another short recharging trip. Love the coast! I do all my best reading there.
- Summer: You pass by so quickly, I hardly remember what I did with you. Next year, please take your time. And, every year after that too.
- Laziness: Well, I’m not sure that’s the point I’m trying to make, because I haven’t exactly been lazy. I have a 60-mile charity ride coming up and I haven’t prepared very well for it. While I have been moderately good about going to The Gym and working out, I haven’t been diligent about actually riding my bike. I’m really hoping the 60 miles will not hurt too badly.
- Negativity: Please, please… As you observe and support the athletes this school year, please mind your p’s and q’s (Ha. My mother used to say that a lot!) The bottom line is: It is high school athletics. The athletes aren’t getting paid. No one’s getting a diamond-encrusted, gold ring if they win. It’s not the WWF! Don’t be quick to criticize someone else’s kid. Their momma might be sittin’ right behind you. All the athletes want us to do is support them. Everyone performs better in a positive environment. Do your best to contribute to that.
- Wild: This is the book I’m currently reading. I’ve only made it through about three chapters, but it’s about a woman who hikes the Pacific Crest Trail. Did you hear me? I said HIKES—2,650 miles. The hike ends up being a life-changing event for her and I can’t wait to finish the book.
- Pioneer Woman: The Pioneer Woman is a fellow blogger who is a photographer and a cook. She blogs about both subjects. This week, she’s giving away a Nikon D90. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on her blog stating your favorite subject in school.
- Friday Night Lights: I don’t have a son playing football, nor did I ever, but I love Texas High School Football… well, make that Jourdanton High School Football. I love getting to document the challenges and achievements of these high school boys on the field.
- BONUS: TEACHERS: I don’t know how you do what you do, but thank you for doing it! Frankly, I don’t like other people’s kids enough (LOL) to spend that much time with them. So, bless your hearts!
Until next time, be positive, be happy, be healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
I started Ata-Girl Photography Co. in 2010 and I am a San Antonio based wedding photographer who is available for destination weddings. In addition to wedding photography, I also specialize in San Antonio senior portraits and senior portraits for high school seniors in the surrounding areas. I am a professional photographer who enjoys documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. When I’m not photographing a wedding, family or high school senior, I enjoy watching my daughter play softball, hiking, cycling and listening to Elvis!
