Celebs galore...

Today is nuts!!!

I have a lot to do to get ready for this weekend.  I live in Louisville Kentucky and it's DERBY baby!  Our whole city shuts down and goes crazy.  My job is to document this craziness.  I'm a freelance photographer for the local paper and I have two assignments this weekend.  One is the Mint Jubilee and the other is Silks In The Bluegrass...aka fancy parties with celebrities.  Last year I got to shoot the Barnstable Brown party.  It was a blast.  I'm excited for this weekend.  Here are some pics I took from last year...




























I have so much to do...and I'm waiting for my batteries for my camera to charge.  I have a check list of items I will need to bring along with me tonight and I have a baby not very happy in the other room.  Today will be a fast food lunch kinda day.  Sheeshhhh...Sunday I will CRASH.  I'm happy I'm shooting the event tonight with a nice guy and I heard back from the PR firm for the event.  Yay!!!  I know how to get my credentials...was kinda worried about that.

I have such a blessed life...and I can't wait to celebrate mothers day Sunday with my favorite guys.  Ok...off to get ready.  Have a wonderful weekend guys!!!

I am so insanely jealous! I went to WKU and have gone to Derby (and/or Oaks) every year but three since '95! I'm not there this year, sadly, for reasons in my blog.
Have a great Derby this weekend!!

Although, I did see Betsy Johnson and I ADORE her!!! (I even told her that when I took her picture...I'm a nerd) Tomorrow I get to shoot another party : ) That one is just locals...sheeeshhhh...I'm sleepy. I'll follow you guys back!!!
