What I'm Listening To: The Hardest Part by Coldplay
(I have been on a Coldplay kick for a few days!)

First, I have to apologize...

I am not having the time to blog like I want so I haven't been able to visit many of the daily sites that I enjoy so much...you all know who you are! :) I have been a bit busy with my better half in India and taking care of our high maintenance offspring! It may a be a few days before I get a chance to do a lot of commmenting but thanks to all of you who I know are thinking of me and praying for us here. I have a feeling you all understand. So thanks!

I snapped these images at The Doll's House. I have written about them here and here. Today it was official...they have been interested in some of my pics for awhile and today we became business associates as well as friends. I am very excited. I just wanted to to share a couple of pics with you. When my pics go up on their website, I will be placing a link to the right so you can go see the pics! You all have been so great about encouraging me and giving advice through email and comments!

Thanks!

Come on In...

I was wondering when we would hear more about your taking photos for the cafe - I can't forget the pic of their amazing hot chocolate drink. I hope this really is a success for you.

Jennifer said...

Well, no surprises here. they were really right in hiring you! congrats! That picture of the shop is amazing with the soft light and sunshine coming in. To me, that pic seems to capture the 'aura' of the dollhouse really well. they are getting a great portrayal of their shop inviting folks to come by. if I saw that picture i would want to come (and wouldn't be disappointed) well done! =) 'night!

Hey, that is such cool news, Anna! Not surprising, of course, but cool all the same.

The more I see of your work, the more I see a soft-focus trademark establishing itself. It colors everything you do, and it makes your images immediately recognizable as yours and yours alone. It also makes them memorable.

i can't wait to see the website link when they are posted.....this place looks absolutely marvelous!!!! is this, by chance, the same place motherskylark had a gwennyth paltrow sighting?

Sarch said...

Carmi is right Anna. There is definitely a feel to your work. I believe I could pick it out of a crowd.

Congrats on the new business relationship!

If you were here in the states I would try to hook you up a friend of mine who owns a personalized stationary company. She and her partner could realy use that "touch" of yours for their product photographs.

Woohoo on the Cafe Photos!! It feels so great to sell your first photograph and to see it in print. Goodluck for a long and mutually beneficial partnership.

The photo of the cafe is lovely, dreamy.

Hope you are coping, I have also been absent a lot lately so dont worry I understand (((HUGS)))

Andrea said...

Fun, fun, fun, Anna!!!

The place looks darling.

It almost looks like blood droplets on the apricot chutney . . . it isn't . . . right?

haha, just kidding!

I completely understand priorities. Believe it or not, there are more important people in the world than us bloggers, hahaha.

Mike said...

Congratulations! I knew it would happen soon.

Also no need to apologize for being busy, I am sure you have your hands full right now. Just enjoy your time, I know you will be glad when John gets back.

srp said...

These are so warm and inviting. Customers are going to flock to their store. And those goodies behind the counter... (groan) the calories waiting to be had. It is a good thing I am not there right now.

photowannabe said...

Good for you and congratulations. Its really thrilling to see your dreams coming true. I continue to pray for you as you are both Mom and Dad for a time. Remember Phil. 4:6-7.

I really like the interior shot. You did a nice job of balancing the lighting. I'll be looking forward to seeing their website with your photos on it!

My Dad used to love orange chutney, but I never cared for it too much.

I thought I had left a comment yesterday, but Blogger must have eaten it. And this is attempt #2 now.
Your photos look delicious. I'd love to be there for some goodies. Thanks for sharing your life with us through your photos.
