Trainer Tuesday...OK, it's Wednesday, you got me

I don't know what happened yesterday but apparently I'm on a roll for not being able to think this week - let's just hope it stops today!

Here's what my husband has to say about making progress and working towards a fitness goal:

You can find more from him at:

Let's go make this Wednesday great everyone!

It's all about the bump, bout the bump - no trouble ;)

So obsessed with that song right now - here you go - and ps LOVE me some Jimmy Fallon:

Nowww... if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram {which you totally should b/c I post some good stuff || Melanie Wright Photography} you've seen some of these. I just absolutely loved this session. We had a couple ideas/poses going into it, but it all came into place when we were shooting and I'm totally ecstatic about how they turned out! What do you think??

Trainer Tuesday

So if you didn't know it, I'm married to a personal trainer. This has its good and not so good points - such as my love of sweets and the ever watchful eye of my husband when perhaps I indulge a little later in the evening when I shouldn't. {This of course has only happened once though. ;-)}

He has a blog at:
This entry was about "Pain" and what it means when working out - it's a short read so hop on over. :)
I'm hoping to make Trainer Tuesday a regular thing if people are interested so holler at me if you are. The deal is - you have to actually holler - "liking" is so 2002 - commenting and following and becoming part of the conversation is what 2014 is all about!!

How to choose?

A couple weeks back I showed you my entry to the Chic Critique Cover Contest. Below are the images out of a ton that I narrowed it down to. The theme was "couture" which is a tricky one in my opinion to nail down since fashion is always so fluid. Though I really loved the ones with more sun flare to them for a cover I decided to go with the sharper image with good contrast which is the one I submitted.

A funny backstory is that this beautiful young lady was once a student of mine when she was in 3rd grade! Can you believe it? So crazy to me to see how stunning she has turned out.

1st Day of Pre-School..

Somehow, somehow, somehow my little one is old enough to start Pre-School today.. I'm excited for her to start this new adventure, I'm terrified that she'll cry when I go to leave, I'm happy for the new experiences she'll be having and part of me is in disbelief that this day is here. I'm sure many of  you are like, "Oh yeah, you'll get used to it, no big deal!" and I know in time I will, it's just that right at this moment I can't believe how fast time has gone by.

What are some of your memories of your kiddos starting school? How did you get through it??

Labor Day: What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Get out there and enjoy your day off America!!

One of my 1st photos shooting with a DSLR in 2010...

This guy is in 1st grade now!

The Glamour of Behind the Scenes...

A.K.A. ... why do I stand like that?

A session with me is never dull.. I'm constantly trying to move and find the best angles and light for your photos. Most of the time I will trip and stumble during the process...or... now that I've done quite a few "Behind the Scenes" shots I will stand quite awkwardly while taking your picture!!All in all - you will have FUN during our session! I promise!
