Things about Me Thursday | Kansas City Photographer

It's going to be a fun weekend! I pick up my sister from the airport tomorrow, then head to Burlington to start my brother's wedding weekend. Can't wait!

1. I love weddings. I Love seeing all the details like the dress, the flowers, the decor, the happy emotions of the bride and groom, etc. And, I love receptions...dancing, cake, craziness...

2.  I have dreams every so often about being trapped somewhere and being claustrophobic in random places. A couple times, I've been stuck in someone's mouth (weird, I know), in caves, attics, etc. Usually I can get in through a small opening, then when I try to go back out, the hole/doorway has shrunk. I always wake up in a panic. It's been awhile since I've had one...but it's been happening for years and years, every so often. 
Oh, and another recurring dream I have is that I try to put in my contacts, and they are huge! I think I'll never get them in my eye, but I always do. Seriously, they are the size of at least a quarter! So, dream analysts, what do these mean???

3. My favorite foods: pizza, ice-cream, bread, potatoes, and cheese. all of them. Can you tell I'm hungry right now?

For a photo, here's one of my nephew from awhile cute.

JaNae contacted me awhile ago and wanted to surprise Bob with a family session for father's day!  I couldn't wait, I love surprises!  He did figure it out before hand, but it was still fun and I think he loved the present!  Bryce is super cute and very energetic!  Thanks guys!  I had a hard time choosing my top ones.  You can see more on my Shauna Renee Photography Facebook, click here.

Things about Me Thursday | Kansas City Photographer

Happy almost holiday weekend!  I hope everyone has an awesome 4th of July!  I'm excited to have an extra day off!

1.  I'm working on a new blog for my photography.  It will be a little different look and more professional!  I can't wait.  Thankfully, I have an awesome friend who knows some html.  Thank you Kim! You'll notice this blog has been updated with my new colors until my new blog is ready.  Also, I have tweaked my website a bit with my colors - black, hot pink, and turquoise!  Check it out here.

2. I'm excited to start my senior rep program and get into the high school senior market.  Seniors are so cute and fun to photograph!  I love their energy and are up for anything!

3. I like fireworks, but at a distance.  I'm not a fan of being close by with the potential that one may go crazy and chase me!  I love the huge ones that change colors in the sky!

4. I love when my nephew comes over.  As soon as he gets to our house, he asks if he can watch a movie in our bed.  It's the special thing he does with us and will hopefully always remember!

5. We're going to Destin, FL in Sept. for friend's of ours wedding.  I'm super excited and ready for a vacation, but a little nervous that the beaches will be all oily still.  Although, no matter what, it will be great to get away!

Things about Me Thursday | Kansas City Photographer

I hope everyone's having a good week...we're almost to the weekend! 

1. My brother's getting married next month. I'm excited...I love weddings and am glad he found someone to share his life with.  Should be a fun wedding!

2. I want the new iphone SO bad!!! I watched the news today and saw all the people standing in line for it. It looks awesome, and has some great new features. BUT, I upgraded my iphone last year, so I am not due for another upgrade til next year.  No fun.

3. I love my pets.Yes, I get tired of always having to use a lint roller before walking out of the house and having to vacuum all the time...BUT, they are so sweet, have great personalities, and can be super lovey. And, yes, I talk to them...I know they understand me. ;)

4. A lot of events have happened lately and it makes me appreciate my family and friends more than ever.  It's easy to take everyone for granted...but I really do care about and love all of you!  I want to do better at getting together and spending more time with all my loved ones. 

5. We lost a great friend last week.  Chris, we'll miss you and your crazy, awesome personality.  I loved being around you, you always kept me entertained with your goofiness!  You and Michael are alike and kept me cracking up when you were together.  I wish I didn't have to say goodbye.

Things About Me Thursday | Kansas City Portrait Photography

Sorry for slacking, although, I have a pretty good excuse for last week.  I had to go to the ER and get my appendix out.  Fun stuff, but I feel much better now and am glad it's over!  I've been resting this week, but am ready to get back to my life!  I have a couple sessions that I'll blog soon about.  For now, here you go:

1.  Having my appendix out was not fun, but I do have to admit, I enjoyed the attention from it.  It was great having so many visitors, getting calls, and emails.  Thank you!

2. I just received a Fine Art photography book in the mail.  I ordered a studio sample with images from random sessions to show my clients and it's fantastic!  Let me know if you want to see it and get one ordered from your session!

3. I am against wearing shorts.  I hate when you sit down, your legs look weird and fat even if they are not.  Although, I do like workout type shorts...they're comfy!  I absolutely LOVE skirts and dresses.  I'm so glad it's warm/hot out so I can wear them all the time now.  They are comfortable and cute!

4. I have ridden a tilt-a-whirl within the last month...and I'm proud to admit it.  Last time before that was probably over 10 years ago.  And, it was fun...although, after the third time, my stomach was not happy with me.

5. I wish I had money to travel right now.  There's so many places I have on my list.  I'd love to go to Ireland and Italy!

Here's a cutie patutie photo of my niece for a fun Thursday photo:
