I shot the first day of a two day wedding today. Today were formals and the reception, tomorrow is the ceremony and a family luncheon.
The reception was held at the bride's home in Provo. It was a beautiful setting and for sure the most beautiful I've shot. In the front yard was the most amazing tree with gray bark and bright pink huge blossoms. The bride's grandmother had the tree brought here from Europe years and years ago. Because of the strange northern spring we have had this year, it bloomed for the first time in 10 years. What a miracle for this amazing bride's wedding.
Had more computer problems. The new hard drives didn't want to work with each other and kept fighting so it made my computer maddeningly slow to edit on.
Ryan just re-did my computer so it works beautifully now. Only problem is that I can't find a picture for today. Don't know if I even took one or not, can't remember. So today will just be my babble. Sorry.
U2 was even more amazing than I hoped it would be. I went to their Vertigo concert last time they were here and I think this one was better! The stage was amazing, we had great seats, and of course, the music was perfect. Oh, and did I mention how sexy Bono is?

My local grocery store is having a baby contest. You had to take a picture of your baby in their store. I got my sister-in-law to bring my nephew and we took some fun pics of him. Here is the one we submitted. If you want to vote for him you can. Click here and make sure you "like" the Harmons page before you can vote by clicking "like". We are losing miserably to the little girl looking at the cakes :( Oh well, it was fun anyway.
I finally have my computer up and running again. My hubby spent all night setting it up for me. I still don't have all my stuff from the old hard drive but at least I can get back to work. It's like learning how to edit all over again since I am trying to re-create all my old Lightroom presets and brushes that I lost. This is a picture of the bottom of my monitor by the way. I love my tiny camera :)
I'm obsessed with the fact that my kids are growing up so fast. It's the biggest reason I do this 365 blog so I'm forced to take more pictures of them.
My 7 year old's harp teacher is getting married. When she mentioned doing her bridals, I immediately got this idea in my head of shooting her and my Abby with their harps. I saw the picture as symbolic of the young girl just starting out looking towards the beautiful woman she becomes. I can only hope my daughter turns out to be as amazing as Marielle, her teacher.
In case you've been living in a closet for the past few months everyone old and new is putting these feather extensions in their hair. I have not given in to the obsession and don't think I ever will. I guess I'm just not cool enough but my niece is! ;)
Got this amazing surprise in the mail today. Woohoo! I'm so excited, thanks Ryan. Only problem is he found out he has to go out of town on business now so I'm taking my son instead. How fun is this going to be?!!!
Today is mother's day. I bought a plant and a gift card for my mother-in-law since she loves gardening. When I woke up this morning I wanted to do something more to go with it to make it more personal so I went down to my sewing closet to see what I could dig up to make a gardening apron. I found a shoe holder that I wasn't using anymore so I cut off one of the rows, trimmed it with fabric and added straps and then used blue and green paint to do my kids handprints on the pockets. Then I wrote, "Look Grandma, We Got Your Green Thumb!" on the 4th pocket. Grandma Jo loved it :)
PS Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's that follow my blog!!
Today as we were out the door Abby remembered it was "Crazy Hair Day" at school so I made it as crazy as I could as fast as I could. We even stuck monkeys all over in her hair. Thought it turned out pretty fun. She loved it and kept making crazy faces for me!
It's a good thing I have so many photo shoots booked or I wouldn't be doing my photo a day. I'm so frustrated with my computer situation the last thing I want to think about is taking pictures for this blog.
