    Labels. No matter how much we want to shy away from them, it’s a way of life. Collectively, they help us define who we are and separately, they each contain a snippet of a facet of our lives and personalities.

    When I first started my photography business, my logo was hanssie trainor: photography. Even back then I knew I could not be contained under one label, hence the colon. (The colon is used before a list or an explanation that is preceded by a clause that can stand by itself) and I knew that photography was just one thing that defined who I was. And now after 3+ years in the business, I’ve evolved and come full circle, back to using the colon to help define who I am – a multi faceted, ever changing person, that wears many hats and has many life experiences.

    This blog has always been about my life but with a focus on my photography, but now, there will be a shift to focus more on my journey in the "IN BETWEEN" from my former life as a wife and mother to life as a single gal and single mom living life passionately under my own terms with photography thrown in as well. I'm just a girl trying to figure things out and deal with baggage and confusion in the dating world. I'm putting it all out there --the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope you’ll join me for the ride.

    I'm kissing a lot of frogs..and blogging about it.

    (P.S. Yes, I am still commissioning for fashion/editorial work and for weddings/ portraits)

How Was Your Day?

My glamorous life yesterday:

4:30am – being woken up by the Kidlet because she had a bloody nose. Couldn’t go back to sleep.

6:00am – reading the news for potential future articles.

7:30am – out the door to drive 40 miles to a day of appointments for the day job.

7:00pm – walking in the door with an under the weather Kidlet.

7:30pm – trying to find a place that delivers soup as per Kidlet’s request.

8:00pm – scrubbing the carpets after Kidlet throws up all the soup that was delivered.

8:30pm – cleaning up more throw up, doing laundry

11:31pm – trying to finish up all tasks and work responsibilities for the day

11:45pm – blog. Can’t get stupid image to post. Give up.

12:00am – looking through the day’s new for more potential articles

12:40am – fall into bed

As the 80′s commercial says, “CALGON, take me away!”


“Big and Dramatic or Nothing At All”

Ass I was updating my my hairdresser, the incredibly talented, Diego Ortega, today about the happenings in my life, he laughed and said, “Just like you, big and dramatic or nothing at all.”

And that is exactly how to describe my life in the last week or so. Big and dramatic life changing events, a few in a row, and all at once just kind of crept upon me and now, BAM! Here I am. Pretty overwhelmed, but super excited.

Can’t share any of them just yet, but before the long, I’ll fill you in on a couple of secrets. (Don’t go spreading rumors now, ok? It probably NOT what you think…)

Here’s a picture from my beloved Trojans’ game against Stanford Saturday night. Talk about big and dramatic! It was such an exciting game that fans rushed the field after it was over.
