For Some Early Morning Squishyness
Well, it’s early morning for me still – I guess anymore 8:00 a.m. is early morning. I am just so tired the past few days, which is to be understood. I’ve been doing a LOT. Last night I slept 11 hours – unheard of normally for me.
Anyhooo, my oldest daughter, Cindy is starting her photography business. I’ve been encouraging her for years, since she clearly has the family talent.
My uncle, Howell Conant – my father’s oldest brother – was the personal, family photographer for Princess Grace of Monaco and family friends with the Grimaldis even after she died. He was the only photographer allowed in the private quarters of Princess Grace when she went to marry Prince Rainier, and he was the only photographer allowed at Caroline’s second wedding. Prior to my uncle’s talent for photography, my grandfather (my dad’s dad) had his own photo studio in Marinette, Wisconsin and I have many historical pictures of early logging towns and such that my grandfather took. Somewhere (well, *I* know where it is) I have a photo of my uncle in the White House with President Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy.
So, it goes to say that my daughter would have some of that same talent. She’s purchased a professional camera and is building a collection of lenses, as well as developing her portfolio. And needless to say, she has the best subject matter to practice with. Lucky duck.
Take a look at some of her work on her blog. We’re working to get her professional site set up. It’s good she has a mother who specializes in marketing writing and web content.
