Excited Much?!?!?!

Yes, I am pretty stoked about today. WHY?! Because today is my FIRST 'event' shoot I've had since I officially started my mini-biz. I am doing a birthday party for a sweet little 2 year old boy..(Remember the 'Gettin Solar' photo challenge from Shoot -N- Tell? That little sweet family I had examples of? It's that same little boy!) But his birthday party is at the Pumpkin Patch in a nearby city which excites me even more because one, it's outside which means natural lighting and great pictures..and TWO the pumkins and straw and colors that will surround everyone. Oh, and icing on the cake...its a COSTUME party!!!! AH! Which means all the already adorablie kiddies will be dressed in costume!..Well except mine...I haven't had a chance to get his yet so we will be sore thumbs if you catch my drift.

I'm kinda nervous although I always bring my camera to family birthdays and such..but since this is all 'offical-ish' I'm like AH! But don't worry, battery is charged and memory card is cleared for many photos. In addition to this I have a one year old's pictures to do, a couple, two families and another to get done at some point! (AH! I'm in deep!) But it will get done. I think. I hope. Any tips and tricks of the trade my photography friends wanna share about moments to capture during events and things like that?! I'm always lookin for advice since I'm new to this world. I have made some homemade props of my own recently and am SO proud of myself (tee hee). So far I have a washboard (not homemade, found at a thrift store along with some ADORABLE bright red and blue ABC blocks)..then I had some old tires that were taken off our truck the first of the year, one of which I painted bright red and the other lime green. Next my Pappaw gave me two old shutters..one is purple and the other yellow..then I have pumpkins and gourds and so on ..

BUT I just wanted to share one of my 'firsts' with my bloggy friends! All of you inspire me to try new things and I am always following you all and your gorgeous work! Don't forget to enter the "Circular" photo challenge for Shoot -N- Tell this week! And most of all have a happy weekend!!
