CityBirds is the Bees Knees

Get it? the birds and (is) the bees? Ok that was a half-hearted attempt at word play. Moving on...

Holy-awesome-wall-hangings, these are great!  I met CB, maker of these treasures, on the internet through blogging, and I'm a huge fan of her fun shop and great blog. I've learned many great biking tips (that I'll probably never use, but we'll keep that between us) from her, and she's always got great stories about her adventurous life in California. I'll be honest, I kind of live vicariously through her blog.

She mentioned once that she wished I could take some photos for her shop, and since I'm not one to deny a person's wishes, we set something up. She sent me several animal portraits, some chick paintings, and some STELLAR earrings to photograph. I had a lot of fun using my colorful walls and random stuff around my house. I know it seems boring, but I actually really enjoy this kind of photography. So much so, that it's a big part of my future goals.

This is probably one of my favorite shoots for an Etsy shop. Hope you guys like it too!

Also, have a good weekend and all that. It's going to be another hot one here. I'm already sick of this freaking humidity and constant discomfort. I can't wear pants because it's hot as...well you know, and I can't wear skirts because my flabby legs stick together. Solution: bike shorts under my skirts. It's not ideal, but it's better than my other two options. My weekend: wedding shooting on Saturday, lounging by the pool on Sunday. What are you guys doing?

Ooo, girl, these are great! I love the animal portraits! She's very talented and so are you. You did a great job photographing them.

My weekend plans... Work, Pirates 4, Work again, and Bible study!

Have a great weekend, yourself, Kristi!
