drumming up business...

jax harmon photography from Jax Harmon on Vimeo.

So, Jax Harmon Photography is officially open for business! But the website is still under construction, so in the meantime the above video is there to show you what I do.

The purpose for this post, however is to announce that I am having a holiday special on family sessions! This Saturday, October 25th, and Saturday, November 1st I will be at Guilford College in Greensboro at 10am and will stay for however many sessions I need to. The price is $50 per family and that includes the session, a CD with 10 images, and photo-editing. For an additional $50, you can get ALL the images from your session.

If you are interested, you can email me at jaxharmon[at]gmail[dot]com. I will be doing them in one hour increments (10am, 11am, etc.). The last one on the 25th will be at 1pm, but on the 1st I can stay as long as I need to. So just let me know what time(s) you would prefer on which day. (And if you can or cannot be flexible with the time, let me know- if I can, I would like to have them one after the other so that I don't have a session at 10am and then have to wait around until 4pm to do another)

And just a fyi: I just recently got new photo-editing tools and used them on all the images in the video. If there is an image of you in there and you would like an updated copy, just let me know.

just thinking...

So, I promise there is a meaty post somewhere in the near future, I just have to download the pictures off my camera first.

But in the meantime, I was just wondering: do all the rest of you women out there have as much trouble with your hips as I do? I have no idea if I had this problem before Max, but it just might have been because I didn't have a child yet. But I find myself knocking him over with my hips ALL THE TIME. And it's not like I swing them into him or anything, it's completely unintentional. Perhaps it's because our children always seem glued to our sides or maybe he's just the perfect height, but every time I walk by him I manage to knock his head or hit his arm if he's drinking or something. And I really don't think my hips are THAT big, I mean, I can't even find a pair of jeans small enough for heaven's sake. So I don't what the deal is- am I alone in this?

this moved me.

I'm not Catholic, I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. But this video crosses denominations.

Ok, so I'm due May 17th.

And luckily I'm not that sick. I have good days and bad days- I've thrown up a couple times, but I've also had a couple of days where I felt good enough that I forgot I was pregnant. Although those days haven't happened recently.

It's funny, 'cause I really don't remember much of my first trimester with Max. I do know I would throw up every morning- but that didn't start until I was 10 weeks along. But I have no idea if I felt crappy the rest of the time or if I threw up and was good for the day. And I don't remember being this tired. Someone told me before I even got pregnant with Max that they always knew they were pregnant when they started sleeping all the time. Well, I would be tired and sleep all the time anyway because of school, so that didn't help me know I was pregnant. But with this one, that was definitely the case. I sleep ALL THE TIME. So if I blow you off, it's probably 'cause I'm sleeping, not because I'm sick.

So yeah, I'm just hoping and praying that the nausea goes away when I hit the second trimester so I can get things done (I have NO motivation to do anything but lounge around the house right now). But even if it doesn't, I know I'll at least enjoy being pregnant a little bit more because the baby will be moving and I'll start getting a belly (the fun parts!).

In the meantime, I am taking it day by day and taking advantage of when I do feel good.
