Temporarily Removed

I removed the slideshow from the blog until I can reload it. It was obnoxious the way it started automatically. I'm going to fix it so you have to click on it to start the show. In the meantime, here are two links to finished slideshows:

Signs of Spring

Finally there are some signs that this long, cold winter will actually come to an end. It has at times seemed interminable. Don't get me wrong, it remains cold out and there are still threats of snow in the forecast. But I have seen these definitive signs of spring:

1. The tips of tulip buds are poking out of the earth. Please don't get eaten by deer or other creatures this year!
2. The snow banks around my house are melting, and I can actually see grass and shrubs.
3. The air is full of bird songs and there are robins hopping all over the newly exposed yard.
4. The sump pump is running. It's not running non-stop like it will next month, but it has gone off a couple of times.
5. Album orders are coming in. Everyone is emerging from their dens, ready to finish their wedding orders before their first anniversaries.
6. LL Bean is marketing flip flops.
7. I receive mail almost daily from my accountant.
8. March Madness (sadly AU lost in the first round).
9. Easter Candy.
10. The ice is almost completely gone from the Scarborough Marsh (Black Point RD) and there are mallards swimming in it.

What signs of spring have your been seeing?

Go Eagles!

The men's basketball team at my alma mater, American University, is going to the NCAA tournament! First time ever. When I went there they had to give away the tickets. But that was a looooong time ago. I've never had the opportunity to cheer for my school at one of these sporting events. This is going to be fun. Who knows, maybe they'll be this year's Cinderella team. And yes, I am aware of how lame it is that we are the American Eagles.

I just purchased software for creating slideshows. Now I just have to figure out how it works and I'll have a new way to show you images!

Wedding Planning Blog

This blog was brought to my attention by some other photographers. It's called the Preppy Wedding and features great wedding planning advice. If you are planning a wedding you might want to check it out.

Another Amazing Contest

My fellow photogs and I keep up with each other by reading our blogs, and I came across this awesome contest on Sam Depoy-Warren's (thanks, Sam!). The Sebasco Harbor Resort, one of my favorite venues, is giving away its services for a 2009 wedding. Yes, an entire wedding can be yours for free if you win. You can see the way the place looks for a wedding on on my website or here on my blog. I photographed Shelby and Roger's wedding there last June. It was rainy and I was dealing with major morning sickness, but it was still one of my favorite weddings of the summer. Not only is the location gorgeous, the staff is amazing.

The Pure Maine Wedding Giveaway includes the Sebasco Harbor Resort as the venue of a stunning destination wedding ceremony and reception for up to 200 guests. The giveaway also includes:
-Catering for the reception including wait staff service and wedding cake of the bride and groom’s choice (note: catering does not include alcohol)
-Overnight accommodations for the bride and groom for their wedding weekend
-Spa services for the bride and groom at our seaside Fairwinds Spa
-Golf for the wedding party
-Wedding coordinator services
-A sunset rehearsal celebration cruise aboard one of Maine’s longest running passenger boats.

Wow. Now that's an amazing contest. Best of luck to you all who are looking to get married in 2009!
