A LITTLE HOUSEKEEPING (NAPLES, FLORIDA PHOTOGRAPHER) Oct07

A LITTLE HOUSEKEEPING (NAPLES, FLORIDA PHOTOGRAPHER)...

Do you have a group of friends whom would LOVE to learn how to take better photographs of their children or whom would love to learn how to use the bells and whistles on their cameras a little better? Do you have friends who would love to have a girls night and get together over refreshments, drinks, and great desserts? If so, let Angie Seaman Photography know. We offer “Moms with Cameras” classes where I actually come to your home (with five or more participants) and show you guys the ins and outs of basic photography as well as how to use those awesome DSLR’s that you own. If you’d like to host one of the Moms with cameras parties, we’ll make it happen. Feel free to email me directly at Angie@AngieSeamanPhotography.com anytime should you have any questions. On another note, I’ve been meaning to mention this to everyone and keep forgetting. Do you have a senior that will be graduation this year and you’re planning to put an ad in their yearbook? How about an ad for your 8th graders yearbook as they graduate from junior high? Well…if so, we create those ads for you. If you’ve worked with Angie Seaman Photography on images recently, we can use those images as well as older images from when they were younger to create a unique and very personalized ad for your student. The above example was done for an 8th grader. Her parents wanted an ad for her yearbook and we designed the layout for her using one of the images we’d taken at an earlier shoot as well as two images from the families stash when she was a toddler. If you need help creating a way cool ad for your child that...

GUESS WHO’S HOME??? Nov28

GUESS WHO’S HOME???...

He’s home. Your prayers worked. He’s still very nauseated, not himself, and moving very slow. However, he’s here – in his own bed again. It’s been a long week. Our family is exhausted. In the end though, we are full. Your prayers and constant positive thoughts are seriously what carried us through this worrisome journey. We’re glad Brent’s surgery is over with but now the eight week recovery begins. Therefore, keep those prayers coming. The doctors have warned him that it’s going to be a tough eight weeks. It’s already proving to be helldacious. I’m proud of him though and am amazed at his ability to press on and recover in the way that he has thus far. He’s determined.In the meantime, I’m back to work. Booking sessions, shooting like mad, and editing my brains out. It feels good to be back to the grind – back to real life – but it’s also a struggle to focus and re-group. It’s disheartening to see your husband so sick and in such pain. I just wish I could take it all away for him. 🙁Thank you again to all of you who prayed, called, texted, emailed, sent flowers to the hospital, facebooked, and so on. You’ll never know how much your love and support means to us. Here’s to the next 56 days and the insane amount of strength we’ll be mustering to get thru it. Thank goodness for friends like you. We’re so grateful for all of you.Blessings,...

THANK YOU GOD FOR THE STRENGTH TO HANDLE THE CRAZY Nov24

THANK YOU GOD FOR THE STRENGTH TO HANDLE THE CRAZY...

As I sit here in this dark and lonely hotel room in Gainesville on this Thanksgiving Eve, I’m grateful that I’m snuggled between two of my youngest littles and have my oldest “little” in the bed beside us. As I reflect on the fact that Thanksgiving is tomorrow and the stress placed on our lives since my husbands surgery took place yesterday morning, I’m reaching, digging, and fighting like mad to remember the many things that we have to be grateful for this year. As I remember those things, my heart wants to inevitably question God and cry at his feet asking…”How much more will you continue to lay on us in this lifetime?” But then…I’m propelled to our beautiful home back in Naples where this new sign (2 weeks new) hangs on our great room wall. It reads…”Thank you God for the strength to handle the crazy.” If that isn’t ever so poignant right now, I don’t know what is. Ironically, the other sign that sits closely next to this new sign is the black one that you see on top of our hutch there. It reads P-R-A-Y. Four small letters that spell out such a powerful instruction. Pray. Just pray! That I am. I’ll start with the good news first. Brent’s surgery went better than expected. The surgeon called from the O.R. with great news yesterday. He had been able to reach the tumor, get it all, and confirmed his initial thoughts that it indeed was benign. Praise God – hallelujah! He said that the team was sewing Brent up but that they were able to get all of the tumor without damaging or having to clip any of his nerves. Thus meaning that there was no paralysis, no motor damage, and...

DANGLING (PHOTOGRAPHY, PERSONAL) Nov18

DANGLING (PHOTOGRAPHY, PERSONAL)...

Sometimes life leaves you feeling like your dangling in mid-air. Feet like hang-gliders unable to ever touch down. It’s at times like those when you have emotions that leave you powerless and feeling helpless. Emotions such as these are tough for someone like myself who tends to find solace when “in control.” These past few weeks have been a “stresser” on our family. For those of you aren’t already aware, we learned a couple of months back that my husband has a tumor growing on his spinal cord. The tumor is not only on his spinal cord but it’s wrapped up and in his nerve cavity. I mentioned this on facebook once when we were finally told that the doctors believe the tumor isn’t cancerous. Well…they’ve given us a 99.9% chance that it isn’t cancerous and by golly we are banking on that number. Other than that one mention of it, we’ve pretty much kept it to ourselves. It has taken us more weeks than we care to count to find a doctor reputable enough to take on the task of this surgery for Brent. The tumor is in such a rare location that these surgeries aren’t done very often. Therefore, it was tough to settle on a doctor that we felt was reliable and whom had done enough of them to pull Brent through it all without issue. In the beginning, the doctors scared us to death when they warned us that paralysis was a possibility. We have since been told that Brent might have some loss of motor ability in a foot or leg or maybe loss of sensation to a certain extent in those areas but that with rehab, he should come out OK. As you can imagine, this ordeal has...

MATERNITY & FAMILY SHOOT ALL IN ONE – NAPLES, FLORIDA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER Nov11

MATERNITY & FAMILY SHOOT ALL IN ONE – NAPLES, FLORIDA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER...

I got to shoot with this adorable family recently. Mom is expecting a new baby girl soon so they wanted to document the pregnancy as well as their family. How cute are they??? Her belly has to be the most adorable thing ever. She is 30 weeks along here. Thirty weeks. I looked like a moose at 30 weeks. LOL! The day almost gave us a down pour on this particular afternoon. Thankfully though…Mother Nature spared us the precipitation. We had some gray skies but at least it stayed dry. In the end, the outcome proved to give us some nice diffused light for their shoot. Is this shot below not hysterical??? Look at the little boys face. Too funny! I had a ball with this family and can’t wait to meet their newest little addition once she arrives. I think her big brother is excited for her arrival as well. 🙂 Blessings,...
