Scouting Locations

We have an engagement session scheduled for next weekend, but I’m an idiot and I put it on my calendar for this weekend. Thankfully I was early and not late. So, since we were already at the location when the bride called me to tell me the correct day, we decided to take a lovely stroll around the park where we had decided to shoot. Neither my husband nor I had ever been to the park before. I hate going blindly into a photo shoot, but it just worked out that way this time. Or would have, if I had gotten the right date. But it all worked out well. We had a nice day hanging out, and we got to scout the location and get some great ideas for our photo shoot next weekend. Here are some of the photos.

If you like any of these photos and would like to use them as stock to create your own art, I offer them on my DeviantArt Stock Profile for free.

This post isn’t just about a photo shoot I did. (Ok. Yes. I did a photo shoot.) My awesome hubby did a 35 mile bike ride to raise money for CF research this morning! I’m so proud of him!

Locked out of Gmail

My husband and I decided to use Gmail for our business email instead of the one provided through our website. It has great features and it’s free. But we came across something today that we were perviously unaware of. Gmail has sending limits. 

Today I was sending high-resolution edited photos to a client. After sending 5 or 6 of them, I got this message:

We thought maybe we had overlooked the existence of sending limits because we didn’t read the service agreement. I mean, who reads those things? But there’s no mention of it in there. So I googled “Gmail sending limits” and found out that if you surpass your daily limit, your email account will be frozen without notice.

So now our business email is locked for “up to 24 hours”. There’s no one to contact for help and I have no idea what else I can do. So, I guess this is a learning experience and I will use Dropbox when I need to send someone photos.
