Can you hear me now?

When your mobile phone alerts or vibrates with a text message, there is a split second that you try to guess who the text message could be. A particular sound could notify you whom the person could be. Other times, it is a mystery. My phone alerted me that someone needed my attention. The message came from my childhood friend, Adeire. Graduation pictures were needed for her daughter. THE END!

Adeire and I are classmates that first met at Nix Elementary School and we graduated together from Orangeburg-Wilkinson High. Since becoming adults with our different careers, I was called on by her to shoot her son’s senior high school photos and her daughter’s pre-prom pictures. This time, I was called to shoot her daughter’s graduation pictures. Upon reaching out for the daughter’s info, I found it was her daughter, Hydeia. Hydeia was the daughter whose pre-prom pics I had taken three years earlier. We produced excellent event images that were taken at Edisto Memorial Gardens. I was very excited to see the energy that we create for our second session, considering we would have a special attraction on set: Savannah. Savannah is the daughter of Hydeia.  Anxious to see her, magic was made from the first click of the Nikon …

Session over!  Everyone was happy.  Next up is graduation from Midlands Technical College and Hydeia will be continuing her education in the fall at Coastal Carolina  for Intelligence and National Security Studies.  Needless to say, I am on speed dial for both Hydeia and her mom.  We’re closer.  We’ve hung out more.  I know them.  They know me.  No need to act clueless when I am texted for the next big milestone because they both have special alerts and I can hear them now.

how did THAT work out for you?!?

And we’reeeee back!  This past weekend I picked up a little hardware. Nothing major to brag about but I was able to get in some organized cardio and be awarded for it.  This race is special to me because of the emphasis it puts on Breast Cancer Awareness.  It is called Get In The Pink 10K/5K Race.  I placed 3rd in my age group. Yay Me!!!  I’ll take it.

Concluding my weekend was time watching my daughter participate in her second tennis clinic as a 3 year old. I will write a blog on that a little later and keep you in suspense for those images.   To say it was interesting is mildly stating it.  Ohhhhh yeah …. quality time with mom for Mother’s Day.  Just lovely!!!

MSP_5182I guess this is where I get off.  Snap at you later. BE EZ. PEACE!!! #moseawell #beEZpeace
