peek at the week #28

Linking up via Life Rearranged to share a peek at my week...and what a week of work it was....

 So this other camera of mine has earned it's keep this week...
(this blog post uses only cell phone images -- I have an iPhone 4) 

The Website will be re-launched soon... and well, each and every piece of art and handmade here at Earth Angels needs to be RE-PHOTOGRAPHED...yikes...that means pulling it from the secret lab, styling it and shooting 3-6 images of each piece because on the new site we'll have the capacity to share oodles of images for each offering...Yes, great but wow a lot of work...
We're talking seriously like 6,000 images...

Here are some of my fave moments from all this photographing...gotta love Caramia's Hotcakes...


Someone went into business thus week...$1 and drink all day...he had a few customers who live here, and a few who work here...we don't live on a busy block...but fortunately we have a busy house...

We have 3 kitties...Balckie is outside only...and she comes and goes...little Finn is here asleep while I am at my desk working...Bib our dear, dear big old fat cat is likely sleeping somewhere else or standing guard over her food...

We have someone back from Boy Scout Camp eager to show off his skills, it's been a fire pit - S'mores kinda week...

There are Jennifer Murphy Bears in the house!! Woo hoo and see the site for oodles of them...


Meet "Marguerite" the oldest of my dress forms...she does a lot of hard work modeling for Earth Angels jewelry artists...

Some of my wonderful nieces and nephews at a family gathering...

Shoes on the lawn during a party...their owners are playing touch football...

This was a porch kind of week...if you ever wondered where we shoot all the images for the site, yep the porch...it's great filtered light, northern exposure...and I can do photos and watch the kids in the yard...Here my Mom, Rosie visits with the kids...we have a ton of re-photographing to do for the new website we'll be relaunching in early September...stay tuned on that!

Harold and the Lannes and the camera...




Here's Alayna....she's doing an internship here at Earth Angels...a lot of boxes...a lot of photos...a lot of great help and a LOT of learning...


Trader Joe's...my fave...our fave...love the free lollies if you find the Gorilla in the Hawaiian shirt...ours is 40 minutes away but worth the trip to stock up or we hit it on the way home from the City...

Working on a new ad for the upcoming issues of "Romantic Country" and "Romantic Homes"...I love this shot...can you spot the 3 artists it features...
.
And here are some other images at the goodies we'll feature in the ads...

We'll be using an image of Debbee's work in the ads too...gotta love the colors...

And one of two sweet teds from Murphy Bears...


And my very fave painting by Laurie Meseroll...ever... 

More soon and have a super week...next week we'll be shooting the lab for two magazines... FOLK and "Where Women Create: BUSINESS" so I'll be sharing a rare peek at my workspace...
Also hoping to get the kiddos to the beach soon...Any big plans for you? 
xxoo Jen
