Halloween 2013 | Heidi Hanson Photography

Those of you who know me, know that when it comes time for costumes for the Hanson clan, the kids have to match or at least have the same ‘theme.”  One year we did pirates, one year Spiderman and SpiderGirl, another year Power Rangers…the only exception was one year we did a Swamp Monster and a Devil just because the Swamp Monster costume was AMAZING and the devil costume was too cute.

So this year when Stryder said he wanted to be a Vampire (no blood – LONG story) and Berkeley originally said she did too – I was like sweet!  This is easy.  Then of course she changed her mind. So we searched online for hours and hours and finally found something that was suitable – Baterina – Aka Bat Princess

Which totes works because Vampires turn into bats……..

FAVORITE THINGS | CT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY HEIDI HANSON (AKA PHPHOTOGRAPHY)

For those of you who know me (and now those who don’t), know that I never sleep. If I get 3 hours a night that is amazing… So I often will get up and make a list of things I need to do, things that I think might make a good blog post, a little phrase to get me through to the next day, etc.  So last night as I got up the song “My Favorite Things” popped into my head, you know the one from the Sound of Music…Raindrops and roses and whiskers on kittens….

So today I’m going to list a few of my favorite things (not necessarily in any order)

My daughters giggle (whether it be evil or not)

My son’s honesty (even though we pinky swear that it is a secret!)

Photography (duh, as my daughter would say, yes she is only four but very wise)

The color orange

The smell of gasoline and fresh cut grass (not necessarily together)

Massages, manicures and pedicures (who doesn’t?)

Clean sheets

Bubble baths

Martinis

Pier 1 Imports and Target

Christmas (my favorite time of the year)

My doggies

My husband’s constant support

The beach, doesn’t matter which one, just give me some sand and some water

And last but not least, a photo of one of my favorite things

What are some of your favorite things?

MY DREAM | CT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY HEIDI HANSON (AKA PHPHOTOGRAPHY)

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~Harriet Tubman

 

 

 

 

Ten

Not 9, not 11, but 10

10 is the number of action items I was given after my mentorship with Justin and Mary.

Ten Steps to get to my big hairy audacious goal….Full-Time Wedding Photography

Some of them are short-term and definitely attainable; in fact I can do a couple today 🙂

And then there are those that are longer-term, making me stepping outside my little comfort zone and really pushing me to fulfill my dream.

Ten things to help me accomplish my dream.

Ten things to help me reach for the stars.

Ten things to start right now!
