While searching files for content for my website, I found a ton of old photos that were never edited. So, what did I do? I went through them all and found some gems. I can’t believe I overlooked some of them! In the next few weeks, I plan on sharing them all with you. Just for kicks. :)

Here are some photos I found of my friend, Vanessa.

I really, really miss her. She is such a positive and kind person. I feel so blessed to have met her. :)

It has been storming a bit this afternoon. I am about to go have some family time while there is a break in the weather! What are you all up to?

Oh, and please read the post below for some exciting news! :)

love, erin

It’s finally here! I finished my web site this morning and was able to share it. It even has a print shop!! I am so proud of it and I hope it brings me one step closer to achieving my goals for this year (that is a whole different post for later)! :)

Please check it out, if you can, and let me know what you think! Also, if you like what I am up to and want to keep up with what is going on, please “like” my photography page on Facebook. I plan on using that as the main place for business updates. :)

I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this with you all. This year has been great for us so far! We are working on a couple of big personal projects in our photography and also looking to schedule tons of shoots to fill up the year. I am itching to travel so if you live outside Missouri and would like us to venture your way, send me a message and maybe we can talk. ;)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! I love you all and would not be doing what I am today, if it wasn’t for you.

I am off to catch up on some more work but will be back tomorrow with something pretty to show you!

love, erin

I just wanted to stop by really quick to show you a photo I found of a beautiful friend that I love dearly and miss so much! It made me happy to come across this the other day!

Now, go and enjoy the day! I am on my way to Springfield for photo sessions and friend fun!

For those of you in Missouri area… What are you doing inside?!? Go soak up the weather! ;-)

Love, Erin

To state the obvious, I am in the process of reconstructing my blog layout. Don’t let that stop you from coming by and reading the posts below. I will continue writing.

I don’t think I want to do much more to it. I just wanted larger photos. So, needless to say, I am pretty happy. :)

Do you have any suggestions? I am open to hearing them!

If you haven’t already, please read this post.

Thanks!!

Love, Erin

Before I start, I have to share.

This little photo I threw together last year has over 1800 views. I know that isn’t a ton but that just doesn’t happen to me. haha

My dad took this one of Will and me last Thanksgiving and it has over 6000. Go Dad! haha

I thought that was pretty cool. Anyway, on to what I wanted to post. =)

————————————————————————————————-

“Subscribe to my blog!”

“Follow my blog!”

“Add me to your reader!”

I am sure we have all said at least one of these before. I have definitely subscribed to plenty of blogs. I have followed many more. And I have tried to read them all because I do love reading blogs. However, I am busy and as much as you might not like me saying it…

Blogs are not that important to me compared to a lot of other things. I have this idea involving… I don’t know… living my life instead of reading about others’ all day. I love to read, but I simply can’t handle my reader looking like this every time I open it.

DON’T GET ME WRONG, NOW. I want you all to know that I have loved reading posts on all of the blogs I have in my reader. However, let’s face it: there are very few people that provide something interesting and worthwhile in every post . I know I haven’t in the past. That is why I have stopped blogging for the most part. I want my blog to be fueled by a purpose and not be something I do when I am bored. So, I wait until I can offer more to you all. The rest is written in a journal so that I don’t bother others with mindless nonsense.

Once again, I love reading blogs. I just like the posts to have substance. I like to be able to see some common thread tying all of the posts together. It could be fashion, food, art, photography, writing, etc. It doesn’t matter! I just don’t want to see a million random “fluff” posts on a blog that make me wonder where they came from. If you want to do that, go to Tumblr and I will follow you and you can show me all the awesome stuff other people have blogged that you like. haha (I haven’t quite explored Tumblr to it’s fullest, however, that is the general idea I have formed in my small personal experiences with it.)

Anyway, enough with the rambling. I have recently unsubscribed to all of the blogs in my reader. It was nothing personal; I just needed a fresh start. I also don’t have the time right now to go through the hundreds (I know… horrible) of blogs and figure out which stay and which go. So, I am reaching out to you.

Will you help me? If you know of a blog (or a few) that you genuinely think I would enjoy, please email me the link(s) so that I can check it out. Shameless self-promotion is ok, too. ;-) Make sure you leave a personal message so I know you aren’t spam. Maybe even let me in on why you do (or don’t) read my blog. It can only help me as I figure out how to make this place what I want it to be. You can email me at erinsundayphoto[at]gmail[dot]com.

One last thing, I am trying to work on a blog design but don’t have money to shell out to one of the places I can get a template. If someone is good at this stuff and wants to help me for free or trade, that would be great! (Yes, I am bartering… deal with it.)

Thanks, everyone! I truly love and am grateful for you all. :)

Love, Erin
