I Got Skillz....

Yesterday was the annual auction at Alex's school.  I was asked to take black and white candids of all the kids to sell at the auction, all the proceeds going to the school.  I think, for the first time displaying my black and white photos, I did a pretty good job...




 Of course the obligatory shot of one of my kids.  Jack loves anything sweet, so he devoured that cotton candy. The theme of the auction was Candy Land.  There was a magician, clown, games and pizza...all the kids loved it!

Of course, what I wore to the event.  I knew I would have to be running around, since I was also the event photographer, I opted for my favorite comfy dress and lime flats.

In the end everyone had fun and all most of the parents bought my photos of their children.  A few even inquired about my services for other events.  Besides doing all the photography, except food, for the advertising agency I work for, I am planning on officially starting a photography company as a side business.

Since it is Monday...I am linking up with the gals for Monday Mingle

Looks like a super fun event. From what I can see, the photography is absolutely beautiful. So is that lovely dress you were sporting. Love it with the bright flats. Hope you have a wonderful week!

That is so cool, Randi. Both the idea for fundraising AND photography as a side business.
