Today I don't have many clever thoughts to share. I am drawing a bit of a blank. I am in a pre-Thanksgiving-food-coma or something like that. The only interesting thing I can think of is this handwritten sign I have seen close by my work. It keeps popping into my head. It just says "Chimney Sweep" and it lists a phone number. Did I mention that it is lettered by hand? So charming. I just want to call the number so that I can hang out with a real live, modern day chimney sweep. When you think chimney sweep, you think Bert from Mary Poppins, right?? Admittedly, Bert freaks me out just a little, so I am not sure why I want to meet this homemade-sign-maker chimney sweep. I guess it is my eternal fascination with the human race. And I have to think that someone who would choose chimney sweep as a career would be somewhat interesting. Add onto that the fact that he/she makes their own signs and puts them out to advertise on street corners, and I'm sold. And you know what? There is actually a fireplace in my house, so I would have a valid reason to contact this fascinating individual. So, we never actually make a real fire in it...maybe it's because we need to have the chimney cleaned first!
Anyway, that's all I've got. A chimney sweep who hand letters signs. Hmm.
So I guess I will share a photo from a recent session that I absolutely adored! This little fashionista is Layne. She has a better wardrobe than most girls my age. She's nine.
I will share more of this shoot in the future, because it's just too much fun to keep to myself!
