    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)

Happy Mother’s Day, Mama!

My mom has purple hair. Well, it was purple the last time I saw her in March. The time before that it was blue and it was a chunky streak through your bangs. My mom shops at Forever 21 and Saks, loves shoes and loves to dress up. For most of my life, my mom has worked 7 days a week (with my dad), started 2 businesses and has about 600 pairs of shoes. Thanks Mom, for teaching me to be independent, to strive for excellence and for giving me your love for shopping! My mom is THE coolest person ever. I love you, Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!

HCMA Conference 2008 – UPDATED

HCMA is an organization close to my heart. Tim’s grandfather, Mel Krug was a Hospital Chaplain with this organization for many years. Tim serves on the Board of Directors and this year I was lucky enough to be on the planning committee for this conference. We spent 3 days at the Calvary Chapel Bible College at Murrieta Hot Springs. I also was able to shoot a few portraits of Mackenzie’s “adopted” grandparents – the McIlhenneys. I will post those in a few days.

Here are a few shots from the conference and a slideshow where you can see all 160 photos from the week. For chaplains who want to print any of these images, email me at: Hanssie@sbcglobal.net and I email you with further instructions!(I have to figure how to do it first).

Oh, and from now on, to stay updated with Mackenzie, our family and my photography, you can go to: www.HanssieTrainor.com

Thanks to David Cochrane for taking this shot, the choir shots and letting me borrow his lenses! (Oh and Tim took some of the close up choir ones!)
