Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in our area

A few weeks back an acquaintance tipped me off that ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition would be featuring a family in our area this January... and they need volunteers to do the family photography. I applied because hey, why not? I figured they'd never pick me but it was worth the 2 minutes it took me to fill out the online form.

I got a call last night that they'd like for me to be their family photographer! It was 9 pm when I saw that I had missed the call (my husband and I were driving to Austin for work, and in true form I was singing all the way there), but I didn't want to miss my window of opportunity. I called her back immediately and left a message. Then I hung up and squealed a little and told Jack what was up.

Finally, I spoke with the representative today and confirmed all the details. I'll be meeting the family shortly after they're told that they're chosen, and then will have a short window of time when I'll shoot family and individual portraits... the designers will probably use them throughout the home for decor, I'm so excited! The opportunity to be a part of something so extraordinary leaves me truly humbled. Wish me luck, and pray for good weather tomorrow (not too sunny not too dark!).

If any lab/frame company representatives are reading this, we'll be needing print services donated, so please contact me via e-mail if you're willing to help.
