Well guys, here I am on the last full day of my internship with Kristen Leigh, and I can't believe how fast it has gone. It has been so much fun, and I am pretty sure it will turn out to be the highlight of my summer.

We have done four shoots this week so far and we have another one tonight. I have gotten so many awesome pictures, and I can't wait to share them with y'all. In order to do each shoot justice I have decided to wait and blog about them all once I get back. Stay tuned folks, because seriously, there are some incredibly amazing pictures headed your way. We have done two engagement shoots, and two children shoots. The shoot we did Monday evening was by far my favorite (which is saying alot, since every shoot Kristen has taken us on has been more than spectacular). It was an engagement shoot with the most in love adorable couple I have ever seen. Seriously. You will see what I mean when you see the pictures, but even then you wont be getting the half of it.

For now, since I don't want to just leave you hangin' for a week, I decided to post some pictures of the cool people I've been with all week.

Julie is from Minneapolis Minnesota, has the cutest accent, curly hair like me, and has been the quieter steady one of the group all week. Love love her smile. She reminds me of a porcelain doll, with her big head of dark curly hair and beautiful skin, with big dark eyes.

Ica (Irene Carol) has dubbed herself "the Filipino intern" and is so amazingly fun . . . :) She has an Etsy store that I had seen a while back, and loved her stuff, and then when she came this week, she brought us all headbands that she made! FUNness! Or, as Kristen would say, "I support that!"
Love both of these girls so much....they are a blast!

At a shoot we did with two little cuties

Hard at work.
I seriously have learned so much just from watching these two work. Networking with other photogs and picking their brain for ideas is SO MUCH FUN!

The out-of-this-world-amazing engagement shoot.

Three cheers for cuuuuuUte photogs! You have no idea how much fun we have had together this week :)

O yeah, she's got it down!

Having fun in photobooth on ica's computer. After working on branding, editing, design, etc. for hours on end, little breaks are needed as stress relievers ;)

So, we are pretty much having the time of our lives, and I have learned more in this one week with Kristen about photography and business than I have in the last year that I have been working on my photography. She is a super-duper-rad-awesome girl, and I am so grateful for her teaching us all this week.

The rest of today is going to be spent in wrapping up loose ends, finishing up website and blog design, etc. Hopefully all my new blog look (yes I know, another change ;) will be up by tomorrow, so come back then, because it will be amAzing! I am seriously so excited for you all to see it I can hardly stand it :)

Love to all . . .
