You may be noticing some changes

We are in the process of getting the new website up and running, as well as the new blog*.

*This is not the new blog. This is a temporary new blog while we wait for out totally kickin' blog to be done! It's going to rock!

But, you may notice that our Photocart system has a new look, in anticipation of our new website. Please be patient with us as we undergo these changes, as it will take some time to get everything converted (especially individual client pages).

Also, you may notice that we might have some downtime. Don't fret. We are, in addition to getting a new website, also moving the main site to a new web host. To complicate matters just a little, we are keeping the Client pages and the Photocart system on our current host, but under a new domain name: www.eighthdayphotography.net. Our emails will remain the same (info@eighthdayphotography.com; ksenia@eighthdayphotography.com; gregory@eighthdayphotography.com), but they may go down for a short while during the transfer.

So, please please bear with us as we make the move and bring you a whole new Eighth Day Photography!

Big Changes are coming again!!!

Well, I haven't been keeping up with my 101 in 1001 days, but I promise I will finish the list soon! What I've been working on instead is a new look for the website (yes, again!). I'm so excited because we will be having a whole new look to the blog really soon (so, if you subscribe to read this blog, make sure you visit the actual blog soon to check out the new look, just as soon as its done!).

But, that's not all. In honor of the new look of the new blog, the website is undergoing a new look too! I've been working hard on it, so keep an eye out for that soon too! While we are in the process of changing over the look, some of the client pages and Photocart may look weird too. I apologize for that, but I think you'll like the new look!

And, in addition to all of that, we are also super excited to be unveiling our secret project! I hope to make it public early next week, so keep checking back for updates on that!

Sweeney Todd

Last night, Dn Gregory and I went to see Sweeney Todd. His parents took Matthias for New Years, so we decided to go see a movie.

It. Was. Awesome!

Unlike my husband, who studied music and knows all the various musicals out there, I have never heard the music to Sweeney Todd before. It was absolutely amazing. First thing tomorrow, I'm heading out to pick up the soundtrack on CD. I have got to have this for my car! The music is beautiful with amazing harmonies and the words are just awesome. I quickly fell in love with the musical.

Now, to be fair and honest, I could have done with a little less blood. Clearly, the Broadway version has less blood, so I may have to see if I can ever see it on stage. But, all in all, Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have come through one more time. I can't wait to see it again!

I do have a new favorite song: Johanna (Reprise). Wow. Johnny Depp singing in harmony with Jamie Campbell Bower was very impressive. The dissonance followed by the note resolution. Wow. Just wow.

Go see it! Soon!

Some New Year resolutions

Well, shortly, there will be 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. I've seen this from a few people, and it looks great, but I haven't had a chance to sit down and write out 101 goals, so I'll start with just a few for now.

1. Finish writing out 101 goals, but post at least 10 new goals per day until the list is finished.
2. Watch the educational DVD's the Cat lent to me.
3. Blog everyday for a month, for at least 3 months.
4. Upgrade the look of my blog (this one should be done really soon, as its already in the works!)
5. Stop coveting other people's website and learn to appreciate the one I have.
6. Tell my husband every day that I love him.
7. Take at least one hour per day and play with my son for one hour straight.
8. Take fun photos at least once a week.
9. Start (and finish) the project that I want to do of black and white photos.
10. Play more with lighting, but soft and extreme.

In all honesty, I've already started working on #10. Check out this photo of my husband from last night. This was the last photo of 2007.

What do you think?
