    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 Birthday, Tim! (and Terri)

Having your husband and best friend’s birthday’s on the same day is difficult! You want to make the day special for both. The goal for Tim’s and Terri’s birthday was relaxation. He had been so busy the last few months that instead of running around and trying to do something. Terri hurt her back, so there was no running around for her. (She ended up getting an IOU for a mani/pedi once her back healed.)The day was interlaced with gifts throughout for Tim. I tried to get 32, one for each year of his life, but ran out of time.

For lunch, Tim, Mac and I went to Delia’s, the yummiest grinder place ever. We then went to the Mission Inn so I could practice taking some pictures, but I brought the wrong lens, but it was fun seeing the place we got married. For dinner, as is tradition, we went to Shogun’s, a Teppan place. When we got home, we surprised Tim with a basket of gifts. It was a fun day.
