the sweet things in life.

currently two of my (three) older sisters are out of town, in Chicago (unfair, yes). so, while the other two are away, I and my other sister planned a few fun things to do here on our own. like scoping out some awesome thrift shops, and getting very pretty-full cupcakes at a cute little cupcake shop. of course, the cupcakes were so lovely, a picture (or two) was in order.




mine was a lemon cupcake. something about lemon cake makes me feel reminiscent. not sure why. but I like the feeling.

also, this past Saturday I had my first photo shoot as a hired photographer. I was pretty nervous - I had never even met the girl before. but she was really sweet, and everything turned out well. I'm excited to post the photos. right now though, I still have some photos to finish editing. but stay tuned!

A couple of photos...

I had these two photos left over from my photo shoot with Marianna that I decided to edit and put up. a lot of times I'll have photos left over that I could edit, but never really do. which is something I should get out of. Sometimes those "left overs" end up being your favorites.

I love this one! I'm so glad I decided to edit it.



Thanks so much for looking! -RebeccAnne

Introducing Priscilla.

*ahem* so, I got a laptop (my first solely-mine laptop, actually). and her name is Priscilla. and I thought I would introduce her (because I'm just special like that).

I love it. I also l-o-v-e my desktop background.

It's an Apple G4. An older model, so I got a really good deal on it. I love it. It's so cute and I love the size. For the price I payed, it can't be beat.

It's so nice to have a laptop of my own. To bring up to my room and just chill with Pandora playing (anyone else love Pandora?!). especially nice when I need to edit photos.

I also watermarked my first photo (above). I used to do that when I was a bit younger, but decided I didn't like it. now that I've began a business, I figured it's past time to start again. I like it now though.

I'm excited to announce...

...That I am now in the process of taking my photography from a beloved hobby to a business as a professional portrait photographer. I've been knowing that I wanted to do this for a long time. It was just a matter of time for me to feel ready. and I am ready.

Last night I opened up my Facebook business page - the first step for me in this new journey. I also hope to get a website up. I'm going to take it slow and steady though. I'm not in any huge rush. But I'm glad I've finally gotten started.

so, yes. I really think you should "like"(/fan) my new page! :-)

Thanks so much for looking. Please pray for me as a get this going. :)
