Unexpected & Exciting News
I absolutely adore this photo of Lotus that was taken at her cousin Tara's communion. I love how I was able to capture her at that moment. She is always moving so quickly, so some shots do not always turn out so well. Now for the unexpected and exciting news............
I was going to wait to post this story but I can go no longer, I need to share. About a month ago, my darling husband had uploaded this photo onto Parents.com in their baby name section. Of course, there was a disclaimer that the photo you are uploading may be used on the website or in their magazine. He didn't give it a second thought, what are the chances??
A few days ago the Assitant Editor emails Kevin;
"We love the photo you sent into Parents of Lotus—it’s absolutely adorable! (It’s the one where she’s wearing a sun dress with stained-glass windows in the background.) To publish it in our October issue’s Caught on Camera section, we need to get a short quote from you, and your name and city/state. If you could answer these quick questions (and include your full name and city/state), we'd really appreciate it"
I was very surprised to say the least! I cannot believe Lotus' photo will be in a magazine (not like it will be a huge photo mind you, still exciting none the less) and one of my photos too! You know who will be buying alot of copies of the October issue of Parents magazine.
Enjoy your weekend!
