Busy, busy, busy

Between the last weekend in April and the first weekend in June, I photographed three weddings.  As you may be aware, my photography business is a part-time gig for me and three weddings in a bit over a month is a pretty busy schedule for me, between the weddings themselves and all the post-editing.  Not to say I didn’t have fun.  I really did!!  But I’m tired.  I’ll post again soon to share a few favorite pictures from each event, but right now I want to focus on something that’s not my wedding photography.

I also sell stock photography.  I haven’t focused on it much the last couple years, but what’s great about it is that the work I did on my portfolio years ago is still paying off, and I make about $100 a month in royalties.  Sure, it’s not much, but it’s still pretty good for not having to lift a finger except to check my earnings online.  Besides that, I have a Google alert for my name, which usually flags sites that have used a photograph of mine and credited me by name.  It’s pretty fun!  Anyway, I just wanted to share a few links where my photographs are being used online:

http://blogs.chron.com/momhouston/2009/04/kids_are_gross_five_tips_for_s.html  (My daughter, picking her nose when I was trying to take a nice picture!)

http://bugamerica.com/destinations/usa/new-york/albany.html  (A picture I took from the car on the highway passing downtown Albany — don’t worry, I wasn’t driving!)

http://www.lebensmittellexikon.de/fotos-und-bilder/kuchen-gedeckter-apfelkuchen  (I even baked that pie!)

http://thefuturebuzz.com/2009/12/08/digtal-marketing-pr-talent/  (I borrowed an AWESOME macro lens from a lens rental company and had fun for a week taking very close up pictures of anything I could think of — mostly words in the dictionary and bugs.)

http://www.mein-diabetes-blog.de/50226711/mein_levemir.php  (I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my son, so I took a bunch of pictures of my testing supplies, which have now more than paid for themselves!  Note… I had to artificially get a test result that high with sugar water, my blood sugar *never* tested that high!!)

http://www.babble.com/content/articles/columns/pediatricianpoll/010/  (Shot when my daughter got really, really, really mad at me for singing to try to get her to smile for a Christmas picture.  I think she *might* end up hating me when she gets older if she finds these pictures of her… but at least any money she makes goes into her college account!!)

And I also recently discovered I have a photo credit in this book!  http://www.amazon.com/World-Atlas-Breeds-Dominique-Devito/dp/0793806569#noop

Anyway — a couple of these came to my attention today and I always get a little giddy seeing my work being used.  🙂  Hope you enjoyed perusing!!
