    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)

Park day and Misc Whining…Um…Rambling

I have decided I need a new lens…err, another lens. I have my standard 18-55mm lens and borrow and rent whenever I need it. The 18-55 has served me well, but it’s time to move on. I cannot decide if I want a 50mm lens first or a standard all around 25-105mm. At any rate with gas prices the way they are (over $4 a gallon…Seriously??), I get to use my 18-55 a bit longer.

Don’t know why I just posted all that, but here are some pictures from the park with my favorite model using my little lens.

You are a great photographer!! Your pictures are really pretty!! Which brand are you using?

Chuck and Donna

He calls her Bonnie (I think that’s her sister’s name?). He wears Starbucks cardboard sleeves as bracelets (and 2 wristwatches!). He keeps tags on his shirt (and wears them)and has a penchant for languages.

She has fiery red hair. She is not afraid to share her opinions. She has this melodic laugh that is infectious.

They are perfect for each other –him in his quirkiness, her in her feistiness. They have been married for almost 39 years and Tim, Mac and I LOVE them both! We met them 3 years ago and quickly adopted them. Both are Hospital Chaplains – Donna’s still training. Chuck is a former pastor and now spends his days doing what he loves – ministering to people in need.

Chuck wanted some formal – esque photos for their newsletter and his new business cards. Of course with these two, things didn’t stay “formal” for very long. Thanks for being our adopted family! We love you guys!
