North Houston, Tomball, Cypress & The Woodlands TX Child & Family Photographer » chubby cheek photography blog


as my luck has been with technology, it should be no suprise to you that i am having computer issues again…no worries i back your stuff up very regularly however this will set me back significantly from an editing standpoint as we are considering going to the “darkside” and switching everything over to MAC…dont worry im not gonna go all nikon on you, hahahaha but we are weighing the benefits  and time constraints of this huge change.  of course with daddy cheeks being such a hardcore MAC fan, it might not be a very difficult decision, however the issue will be waiting on new software to arrive once the computer decision has been made and of course reinstalling EVERYTHING.

HOW ELSE DOES THIS EEFECT YOU?!  i have no access to alot of my own stuff, as while i am a stickler for backing up your stuf,f i have fallen behind on backing up my own images as well as ccp info.  and i do not have access to my old emails via outlook bc they are on the “original server” aka pos computer:)sooooo please if you have an upcoming session like in the next week EMAIL OR CALL ME IMMEDIATLY so i have a way to contact you!  ESPECIALLY MY SECRET MINI peeps i need to send you the private location and final details for sunday!!!!!!  I am sorry for this small speedbump but sunday will most def be fabulous and its going to kill me if i cant psot sneak peeks sunday….

all orders that have been paid for up to monday have been ordered so yall will be unaffected but feel free to email me if you need to

but those of you who have an outstanding  gallery need to please consider that your gallery will be delayed, and at this moment i can not tell you how long but hopefully not more than an additional week.  i am so sorry for the delay

I ALSO NEED MY SMART COOKIE MARCH CLASS TO EMAIL ME IMMEDIATLY, so i can send the forms over to you to get done prior to class on march 13

and last but not least i plan to post saltwater beach mini session details THIS WEEK and we all know how fast they always book so keep an eye out and get ready bc this year’s pkg will knock your flip flops right off:)

kate robinson - oooohhhhhh!!! cannot wait for a saltwater shot…. so exciting!!!

Amanda - Yuck! Just went through computer hell in January. is my best friend for all the hard drive stuff – but it won’t back up the external drives with images, I have to do that separately.

Angelique - SALTWATER…MEMEME!!!!!

 i truly believe that each of you, no matter what kind of camera you have or dont have, no matter how perfect or imperfect our days can be, it needs to be captured…LIFE needs to be captured.  As a group we hope to inspire you to take out that camera, capture a full day of YOUR life, capture your afternoon swinging at the park, or riding bikes to check the mail, any of it, all of it, just capture it!  No one but your family will prob ever enjoy these images and hey they may not ever even be edited if you are a photog but the bottom line is someday you will look back and you will be so happy you have these memories captured!


in case you missed the long winded explanation from last month…my first month on board this little project with some pretty incredible photogs, check it out HERE

now on to this month…earlier this month i starting playing with the concept of “shooting in the shadows” after ready a tut on it.  and as you may remeber from last month i am really trying to focus on shooting a part of our everyday lives that i normally wouldnt.  and since i am usually so enveloped in the night time routine myself, i decided to step back this night….and just be an observer…so…..

what our night time looks like

from the bubble baths that are not only the end of our days but the beginning of our night time all the way to my two little snugglebugs squeezed on a 2×2 space in full size bed in the glow of their tinkerbelle night light….sigh….
