alice, the ever resourceful girl was able to secure a couple of booths for us to display our work and to take headshots of everyone that stopped by. we met some amazing talent and some really fun people. thanks to everyone that stopped by to chat with us!
if you were an attendee of that event and got your headshots done by me you can dowload copies of your photos from this link.
this week i'm spending time recovering from an over indulgent moment that hanssie and i had. ok maybe it was longer than a moment. if you follow me on facebook you might have read about the 3 hours we spent at the paris buffet where they were serving all you can eat alaskan king crab legs. oh lord. and as if that wasn't enough... we topped it off with crepes. no exaggerating. and i'm only telling you about the parts we spent the most time on. i won't bother listing all the other things i crowded into my belly with the baby.
fortunately my family is ok and my friends sound ok too but not everyone is as fortunate. everyone i know back there is doing everything they can to help with the relief effort. i'm just doing my share as best i can ..
