A Milestone & A New Venture

Hello Again My Wonderful Followers,

And my apologies for another extended absence. Over the past few months I've been a nanny, worked on a poultry farm and in a warehouse, and shot a friend's wedding, among other things. It's been pretty busy and I've had to let a few things slide, but I've missed my little blog. Things are still busy enough with another wedding this weekend, but I'd like to be around here a bit more often.

Last night as I was reviewing my stats, I clocked over 40,000 views! THANK YOU to everyone who has been a part of this journey; irregular and rambling though it may be, it has been fun. 

In other news, my latest venture is launching Bianca Ruby Photography as a separate entity and beginning to build its brand. It's exciting to see this dream of several years become a reality. I'd love if you'd follow along on Facebook and Instagram @biancarubyphotog!

Thanks again guys,
Bianca

10 on 10

Maybe I should just start a series called "Flower Power" or something?! That seems to be a common theme amongst my shots. Today wasn't overly exciting; I took a couple of the girls for a walk (which is always good) and spent the rest of the day working on housework and such around home I think. 

Since I won't be on tomorrow you can enjoy this post a little early :P

I almost walked past this butterfly; saw it just in time. Then it didn't move so I was able to get a number of shots from various angles #perfect

Also, ask Maria about the significance of this location.

I've been wanting to try a shot like this.

10 on 10

Today was perhaps the most difficult I've had for preparing one of these posts so far this year. Didn't take my camera to work, which was maybe a good thing since someone may have been considering breaking into my car anyway. Did a couple of things on my way home and arrived back tired and with a few things to work on besides this post. I came up with a few interesting shots I liked though.
