I'm A Slacker!

Sorry For Our Mess


It's been waaaay too long since I've blogged or done anything on my website.  Truth be known, I've had little time to do much of anything except work and shuffle kids to and fro; not even ONE SINGLE VACATION this summer (I'm not bitter or anything).  

Kansas City Real Estate Photography has finally caught on and every photographer I know has over-flowing schedules - a good problem to have.  Because of the growth here at Dawn Conners Photography, I felt it was time to grow my website in order to keep things fresh.  I told my web dude that I need to be able to change my website as often as I change my hair color.  I think he understood, at least I hope he did.

This last year finds me doing more Commercial and Multi Family Real Estate Photography in Kansas City.  I just finished this job and thought I'd share a pic.  I know it's only a fitness center, but it's a really cool one!!





I hope all 8 subscribers reading this blog are having a FUNtastical summer, and welcome if you happen to be new to my ramblings. 

Many thanks for stopping in and taking the time to read.

Cheers,

Dawn Conners

Spit Star

One of the benefits of Real Estate Photography is that when I'm in a pinch I can almost always take our youngest to work with me.  Our little princess is 6 years old, in kindergarten, loves her teacher, music class, friends and is obsessed with ART; so obsessed that she's adorned our walls with drawings, using ink or a Sharpie, and has used her colors to add a little pizazz to the fluted columns in our home.  We've had many conversations with her about what's appropriate on which to draw and she's had consequences for the choices she's made, some of which were quite devastating for her.

I tell you this because on the last day of her holiday break from school I had to take her to work with me.  She's really a very good little girl and easy to be around, but she has this sneaky side about her that reminds me of someone I know (ahem), and apparently when I was flipping on lights, adjusting a few curtains or closing some blinds she took the liberty to create a Spit Star on my lens.  Of course it went unnoticed by me at the time, but when I got back to my computer I immediately noticed something funky about some of my images.  I went five days shooting with this spit star on my lens thinking, "What in the world is going on with my photos?!"  Why would I look at my lens?  I shoot and the lens cap goes right back on as soon as I'm finished.

So, if you happen to see any images that look something like this below, please know this is nothing more than God giving me what I deserve for my past sneakiness.  I have already accepted this lot in life and can sincerely laugh about it........for now.

(cloudy spit star under the white guided star)

Miss Grace has apologized and promised to never put a "pit thhtar" (she's missing four front teeth) on any of my lenses EVER again.

Now it's time to send this blog to all of the agents I shot for that week and offer a reshoot.

Thanks for stopping in and if you have any upcoming real estate or real estate photography needs, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I promise to leave the sneaky one behind.  :)

Happy New Year

Everyone here at DC Photography would like to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2013.  I'm so happy the Mayans were wrong, although, I really wasn't worried........most of the time.

Real estate photography has exploded in the Kansas City area and I foresee another booming year working hand in hand with the wonderful agents this city has to offer.  

As you can see, I've yet to figure out why my blog images still look the way they do.  I keep checking in hopes some magical fairy will make them reappear (you never know!), but sadly, they are not.  The only solution at this time is to manually upload them again.  Nope.  Contact me if you have any questions from my previous blog posts.  I'd be happy to help.

In the meantime, I'm going to post some photos from a job I was commissioned to do for an agent who specializes in Leawood, Kansas.  Fingers crossed that they don't turn out like the rest of them.  





Happy New Year and thanks for stopping in.

Cheers,

Dawn Conners
