I am so grateful to everyone who has signed up to follow my blog - friends, family, Kate Landers Events LLC, and Abigail's Bake Shop! I hope that you enjoy reading :)
So much has happened so quickly in my worlds of planning Kira's party and launching Pocket Full of Parties (Want to know something funny? My hubby suggested that I use the word "launch" instead of "start" when referring to my new business...I laugh every time I use this word now!).
I mentioned that there was a potentially exciting opportunity! And, it has come through beautifully! I am very lucky that my social-butterfly (wait, that does not sound right for a man...firefly?) husband is so charming and has many valued and treasured friends. One of these friends is Gary Kaplan, an acclaimed and incredibly gifted photographer, who is also a "fabulous friend" of Colin Cowie. Yes, the Colin Cowie!! Check out Gary's bio on Colin Cowie's website: http://www.colincowie.com/fab_friends/gary-kaplan
On a whim, I e-mailed Gary to see if he would be interested in photographing Kira's party. Never expecting to hear from him, I assumed that I would be attempting photography on my own! However, Gary was kind enough to reply. After talking for several days (such an interesting man!), the whim became reality! Although he has a wedding to shoot late that afternoon, he and his assistant are going to shoot the party! Wow! Not only is he going to come the day before to do a photo shoot with Kira, but he is also going to come two hours before the party to take preparation photos. His detail shots are gorgeous! In my head I am singing a tune with the lyrics, "I have Gary Kaplan for two days - wow, wow, wow!"
I am going to spend some time with Kira and cleaning my house now.
Thank you for visiting!
