How Are You Reading Your Blogs?

I follow LOTS of blogs... other photographers, a few tech blogs, some mommy-blogs, pop-culture blogs... I will NOT admit to how many because it's just downright embarrassing.

But let me tell you... if I didn't use an aggregator it would take HOURS HOURS HOURS out of my day to look through all the sites I frequent.

What's an aggregator you ask?

In simple, non-techy, terms... it 's a one-stop place that collects all the recent posts from all the blogs you specify... and shows 'em to ya.

I'm personally a big fan of 'Google Reader' for two reasons:

1) I have multiple Gmail accounts so it's just easy and right there


2) This do-hickey...

If you're using Google Reader...on the top right section of your screen (next to your email address) click 'Settings', then click 'Goodies'...

Drag the 'Next' tab into your bookmarks toolbar...


Whenever you click it, it automatically takes you through each blog you've subscribed to!


Until next time,

~ K

Models Needed

If you're in the local area (Hampton, VA) and are willing to be my guinea pig for a few hours on Sunday, October 25th in the late afternoon... I'd love to have you!

I need a female (age doesn't really matter) and a girl about 10 or so... mother/daughter combination would be even better!

Time includes hair, make-up and a quick shoot in Yorktown... all total, you're probably looking at 2-3 hours. For your time (and guinea-pig status) I'll give you a few of my favorite images on a CD.

If you're interested, please email me: kassia@kassiareedyphotography.com and send a recent pic!

Cheryl & Cody | Newport News Portrait Photographer

Cheryl contacted me to take a few head shots for a re-brand she's working on... she's a hard-working, successful mortgage broker... but I'm not going to post any of those pics :) I want the launch of her new branding to be the first time anyone sees those images of her...


I did grab this shot of Cheryl and her sweet dog, Cody.

As I was leaving, I leaned down to give him some love...and he kissed me... once on each cheek! Awwww. He's cute AND a European at heart. *Love* that.

Until next time,

The View

If it's a beautiful sunny day, there's almost always a group of white sailboats out on the harbor. This day, though, they were joined by a few colorful boats...

The pictures never do it justice.

You can't hear the wind blowing...

... or the waves hitting the shore...

I love where I live.

In more business related news... September has purposefully been a slow month. I'm taking a bit of a break. Maybe the calm before the storm?

October is shaping up to be VERY busy. Almost all my Saturdays are already booked up...and Sundays are on their way to filling up as well.

Please, if you were interested in booking a session (and using those great Holiday Specials), please don't hesitate any longer... send me an email so I can get you in before they expire mid-November!

I have a fun family shoot scheduled for this weekend... so beautiful families coming soon!

Until next time,

T-Minus 3 Days...

...until my first baby goes off to Kindergarten...

He is so excited. I am so excited. I am nervous beyond comprehension...but would never let him know that....and if you asked me why I'm nervous I probably wouldn't be able to verbalize it..."Uhm. Uh. Kindergarten...bluh...blabber...scared...excited...big kids...big school...lunchrooms...blahdity...blah...bullys...ugh..." Make sense? Yeah, not to me either.

But in the end I know he'll do great. He's a fantastic kid. Truly.

So, to get ready for his big first day of school, we went to get his hair cut. :) I think it looks perfect.


I'm not ready for him to grow up.

Until next time,
