After a morning home with my kiddos...I can safely say I think there IS such a thing as to much "Voice"! My kids have no problem "finding" their fact, I think NOT using your Voice sometimes displays a bit of maturity, will say, beyond the age of 4.

Therefore, I conclude, there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven...

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away....

and, most definitely, a time to be silent....(:

and a time to speak,

Meet David Coury.

David Coury shared some valuable communication insights today.
I will forever notice now if I am crossing my arms, or holding them behind my back. I will also work very diligently to make more "I" statements, and know what "I" want to say. Not to mention, I am going to forever hold it over my husbands head that David said, "emotions are Ok!" And perhaps, just perhaps you will over-hear me working through them in a Mickey Mouse voice (Well, if nothing can't take yourself to seriously while talking like Mickey Mouse, can you?) I will also ponder on, who cares how you got here...move on! I really like that one...

I could go on, but I am sure David will have a book out before you know it of all these insights...My personal insight for the day...

I am first and foremost a portrait photographer, I like the connection made in a portrait setting, and not the hustle and bustle of events.....and yet, this is my favorite shot of the day, and I really! enjoyed making it, at an event, of all things........ David said, "Try it..." and if you don't like it, try on another hat! Maybe I won't hang-up my event hat, just yet....

Somebody 'stop' me...

I don't have a photo to post. Just a big, Thank You!, to Syl
for an intense and super informative Speedliter's Intensive yesterday in LA.
Poor poor Syl...I am afraid he is going to need a LOT of wine in October... (:

My brain is now complete mush!

I am thinking of light, light, more light, light and shadow, turning day into night, and stops.

I think I dreamt of stops last night....iso many stops Nikki? How many stops of real estate are my children?'s an illness really.....

more photos soon.

Linky Thingy

Ok, this is now my 3rd time of trying to put a link in my I feel completely justified to have a small rant about it. Because really, 3 times is supposed to be a charm.
Tried to put Miss Brown's website here with a linky thingy...which would have been so could with a click, viola', been on Miss Brown's website, but arghhh, I can't get my linky thingy to work....arghh
Sorry, I digress. So, here is the website: Oh Wow! In this case it was 4th time is a charm...whoohooo! I can do a linky thingy!
Meet Miss Brown!

"Miss Brown can be anything!" More looks to come....(:

On a side note... I almost made Miss Brown pinky promise that she would save a ticket for me when she landed her first role on Broadway...but, I just wasn't sure how reliable a pinky promise was coming from a clown with orange hair...

(: Miss was a pleasure!
