    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)

My Girlie Girl

I am not sure if she likes to be in front of the camera or behind the camera more! This is Mackenzie in one of her Sunday School dresses. Every morning she will ask me, “What are we wearing today?” And if I say, “A dress,” cheers erupt and invariably there will be jumping up and down and clapping of hands. She always wants her nails painted, asked for over a year if she could get “pretty ears” (earrings — which we did last year), and continues to ask if she could “point her eyes” like Mama (translation: make-up). Oh and she loves to shop…like mother, like daughter.

Ol’ Grampa is smitten with the Princess…will she walk with me like last year to get my BCC (if I’m to get my BCC!!!)…need to wear a tie this time….

"I’m A Cubbie Girl!"

On April 2, Mackenzie joined the AWANA program at our church. I cannot believe that she is old enough to be in a group I remember being in! She loves it and is making lots of friends. She is working hard to earn her Cubbie bear patch, not an easy task since she started 21 weeks later than everyone else, but she is up for the challenge. She has already memorized 7 verses in 2 weeks!
