The house flooded - see prior posts. We've finally got our house back in order - new carpet, new wood floors, new paint, and I'm almost done putting everything back where it goes. The joys of packing up like your moving - but not moving is fun - NOT!!!
The summer has been so hot - so I'm thankful that clients have understood and allowed me to schedule their sessions in September and October. Let me tell ya - I'm ready to get past this heat!
As the title says - I've GONE GREEN! Since I had some downtime this summer, I've evalutated my time commitments - to my family - to my full-time job - and to my photography clients. I need a balanced life and have decided to scrap my other portrait collections and introduce a digital collection - The Edwards Collection. I'm so excited.
The Edwards Collection is completely digital and includes a media disc of high-resolution digital images (both color & black and white) from the portrait session with authorization for unlimited personal use. Low-resolution images, which are perfect for web and email), are also included. Of course, I'm well known for my signature linen finish on all portraits - don't worry people - The Edwards Collection offers a 25% discount on ala carte prints and other products. Of course, you know me, I'll throw in a few suprises here and there!
I've been hard at work designing new holiday cards too - as well as new albums for family sessions, senior sessions, and weddings too! Keep checking in - I'm ramping up for another 30 day blog challenge soon!

Anyway - my son and his friend came just a short while ago to pick something up and would be on their way. I could hear my daughter laughing hysterically and naturally, I had to investigate. I guess you will be able to tell by the snapshots that my son and his friend are VERY eager to go to the midnight showing tonight!

I called my friend Erika Herman because she owns Cornerstone ChemDry - she sent over a crew to help me with the water extraction - she saved the day!!!
The ceiling in my kitchen area
Daniel used our large trash cans to capture the water rushing from the vents. They were about 3/4 full when I got home.
The hall way upstairs - just outside the bathroom that started the flood.
Another hall way angle.

Here's a poem that my daughter gave me today .....
Now that I am 9 years old
I think it's time that you were told
Exactly what you mean to me
In a poem....as you can see
I know you think I just don't care
or maybe that I'm not aware...
of all the things you do for me
I really do ... now let me see
You drive me here ... you drive me there
You clean my dirty underwear!
You cheer me up when I've had a bad day
You always seem to know just what to say
You make my bed when I forget
You give me hugs when I'm upset
I love you Mom, on you I depend
You're not only my mother ... you're my friend
So on that day that I'm driving you crazy
Because I'm being a "smarty" or just lazy
Go to the place where you'll keep this letter
Read it again ... it will make you feel better
I just LOVE my kids!!!!

Anyway - about the couple. They met at Stephen F. Austin and now live in Houston, Texas. Some fun facts about the couple.....
- John tore his ACL over Christmas vacation.....it was touch and go if he'd be able to walk at the wedding!
- Judy, the mom, created & planned Kim's wedding since she was back in Houston taking care of John!
- Mark, on of Kim's dads, had surgery about a month before the wedding, and had more surgery scheduled a week or so later!
- I sprained my ankle the Tuesday before the wedding & didn't tell anyone - I was too afraid to freak out Judy! I had to deliver some adorable 3x3 mini-albums for the guests & walked in pain so she wouldn't notice.
- My 2nd Shooter, Rich, is an amature storm chaser - he had the weather radar on in the back room - if he saw movement - he would have been "otta there"
The weather was fantastic (sorry Richie) - since it was outdoors everyone feared rain - we felt minor sprinkles and then everything just fell into place.
The first 3 pictures you see are so very special - they are actual captures of when John and Kim saw each other for the first time - makes me cry just to see Kim's expression!
Yes, John, I think this was my absolute favorite picture of you of the night! You've married into one spirited - fun-loving family!!! Debbie (the bride's other mom) gave me the heads up this would happen - so I was ready! I can't wait to hear what you do to get them back!
....and they lived happily ever after
