I’ve Been Tagged!

And this is a BIG deal…well, to me it is!  I mean, as an admitted blog stalker, I have enjoyed reading the tag entries of some rock-star photographers (as far as I’m concerned) like The Bebb’s, Jennifer Nichols, Carla Ten Eyck, Kelly Moore…and I woke up yesterday morning to find that I had been tagged, too!  Anytime another photographer looks at your work and says, “Nice!” I feel flattered and fulfilled.  So thank to Michael Blanchard for tagging me! I found his site thru [B]ecker’s this week.  They met up together in Boston last weekend, and when Becker posted his site, I had to check it out.  I commented on his super work, and he ended up checking my blog, and apparrently liked what he saw.  So I wanted to think about my 8 things before I posted, so after 24 hours of thinking, here goes…

First, the rules… 

1. Post these rules before you give the facts.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) someone and list their name (linking to their page.)
4. Leave them a comment on their blog letting them know they’ve been tagged!

Okay…here are my 8 things…

1. I love Jesus.  As I write that, I’m embarassed that that might be something most people don’t know.  I wonder if I live in a way that really portrays that.  I hope I do.  But I know I often don’t. 

2.  I have three boys…not just two.  I placed a son for adoption 14 years ago. 

3.  I can fold my tongue in half.  Not roll it…fold it.  Its a goofy party trick.

4.  I love to dress up and feel like a girly-girl.

5.  I wet the bed until I was in 5th Grade.  It’s my younger brother’s fault.  🙂

6.  I am very competitive.  Don’t ask me to play Pictionary or Scattegories or I Love the 80’s unless you’re serious. 

7.  When I was little, our backyard caught fire after the grill tipped over, and my dad stomped it out with his feet.  That sight scared me to death, and I have been afraid of fire ever since.  Even now, my husband has to light our grill.  It freaks me out.

8.  I hate eggs.  The smell of a fried egg is enough to make me vomit.

So, as if that wasn’t hard enough, now I have to tag eight other people who haven’t been tagged yet.  Here goes:

1.  Jennifer Lowe  A fabulous local photographer whom I’ve known since high school.  I think I can safely say that we have learned volumes from one another.  I called her yesterday after getting tagged, and told her to prepare to be tagged herself.  She should be good and ready. 

2.  Pam Long  Another local photog who is sweet as pie and great at what she does.

3.  Alison Bynum  I met Alison at Pictage’s PartnerCon in Chicago earlier this year.  She is in Tennessee, and her work is outstanding.  She also just adopted a sweet baby girl named Norah. 

4.  Anne Lord  Anne is an associate of Kelly Moore’s in Louisiana, and Kelly has tagged her, but I haven’t seen her respond. I think she is brilliant. 

5.  Laura Novak  I love looking at Laura’s blog.  She is in Deleware, and her photos are spectacular. 

6.  Mike Larson  I met Mike at his seminar during PartnerCon in Chicago, and he is awesome!  His photography is bold (he’s the guy that throws his camera in the air…check the blog for a sample…its amazing, and a little nutty) and fresh.  I can’t imagine he hasn’t been tagged yet, but its worth a try.

7. Pepper Nix  We met at PartnerCon as well.  Actually, we met at the airport leaving PartnerCon. Pam & I had lunch with she & Mitch…they are hilarious!  Not to mention like the best photographers in Utah.  And she’s been neglecting her blog a bit, so maybe this will light a fire…

8.  Paula Swift   A girl after my own heart…I love her portrait work! Massachusetts is lucky to have her!

 I hope I haven’t double-tagged anyone.  Thanks so much to all mentioned who inspire me daily!
