How the hell do I keep up?

Posted in art, baby, couples, friends, kids, love, pregnant, tate tullier photography on June 27, 2009 by tatephoto

It’s getting to be impossible to keep up with my own schedule! I have MAJOR respect for other photographers who are able to stay on top of things (editing, shooting, scheduling, emails, networking, blogging, website updating, advertising) and all WHILE maintaining a “normal” life!

It’s Saturday and I spent last night drinking with my good friend, Whiskey, trying to organize for today’s garage sale with Sarah, Brooke and Rose (thanks girls!)….. eventually we all turned in around 1:30am. I woke up at 5:30 am to get all our stuff out on our carport for the sale from 7am-3pm. I spent all day in this sorching heat, selling and mid-day Emily came with Brooks to do his 6 month photos! Betsey also came along as well. Miquel was sorely missed (like I told you, we’re always thinking of you every other day and just wish you lived down the road from us!). By 2pm – we just had enough of garage sale’ing and gave up – profitted $240 from today. From there – we packed up our Commander and headed over to the donation center at the Fellowship. Finish!

Sarah went in and took a hot bath, and she’s not responding to my IM’s so obvious she’s napping! I am still filthy from sweating all day. I come in the office to check emails and end up editing! I love my work, and MAN – I just wish I had MORE time to do it. I think the more I do my own editing – the more perfectionist I make myself. I am consistenly pushing myself to take it up a notch for you, my clients. I want to provide you with some photographs that just scream WOW. I want you to WANT to hang it up on your wall – not tuck it away in an album somewhere gathering dust (but that’s fine too!).

Check out these shots! These are just “one” shot from past shoots I’ve done in the past few weeks of June but just never got to post for y’all to get a preview! I love, love, love, love, love how they’re turning out!!

I know I say it so often but THANK you so much for trying to be such patient clients. Thank you SO much for your business. THANK you for the referrals. Thank you so much for all of it.

Evil Mexican Food & A Baby

Posted in baby, friends, pregnant, tate tullier photography, tate&sarah on March 14, 2009 by tatephoto

Yesterday, Sarah really wanted to go eat something out instead of at home. I said but we’re going out tomorrow (tonight) for sushi for a friend’s birthday that we got invited to……… but eventually, I always give in because I rather eat out too anyway!

She said, “Mexican or Crawfish?” We are both in the mood for some boiled crawfish but decided to wait till we have a crawfish boil sometime soon. Mexican it was! Casa Maria is where we headed over to.

Ashlie beeped us bored and pregnant. We got her to come meet up with us.

Mexican food is delicious but please tell me that I’m not alone when I really say it’s evil. It does nothing but make me feel overweight triple than I already am. I can eat chips and salsa all day long. I could even order some nachos for dinner even after eating chips and salsa all day long. I love refried beans, black beans, beans galore…… I much rather steak beef over veggies/less fattening chicken…..

hence, the revelation – Mexican food is evil. I’ll probably have some more again next week somehow. Ah. Earth is a battleground, right?

As for baby number two for Ashlie – it’s coming any day now – she’s already feeling the pressure. She’s READY for Gabe to pop out. We are too. We’re excited for her & James!

I love this shot of Sarah. Normally I hate taking photos of people right after they put food in their mouth, but this one was just too cute.casamaria1

Chilps & Salsa. We die together.casamaria2

Sarah definitely has pregnancy envy, we’re both ready to have some kids!casamaria7

Evil Mexican food, go away! Gabe, come out soon!

Ellie Grace from New Orleans arrived!

Posted in baby, family, pregnant, tate tullier photography on March 11, 2009 by tatephoto

Funny, this morning I wrapped up Mary & Chris’s maternity photos and I texted Mary to see if I could post some here on the blog. “Ellie Grace was born yesterday” – Ah!! Yay for Mary & Chris – and perfect timing for this posting!

I photographed their wedding in Gulf Shores, Alabama almost two years ago (has it been that long ago already?!) and just hit it off with their family & friends. They were so much fun and sure enough, I scored another wedding gig this coming summer through them – (a shout out to Lindsey & Bradley).

Thank you Chris & Mary, for the continued support/business!

Welcome to the world, Ellie Grace.












Look on the left – those three framed photos are wedding shots that I did.


Rose & Violet Photos!

Posted in art, friends, pregnant, tate tullier photography on February 14, 2009 by tatephoto

I finally finished Rose’s pregnancy photos. You were able to view a few selected ones on previous entries but here are the rest of my favorites out of the bunch.

This shoot was perfect to play with the coloring of the violet tone, which is pretty obvious!

Rose, Thanks so much for putting this special shoot into my hands. I’m always flattered when a pregnant woman allows me to do her photos because it’s such a special moment in her life.

Dancin’ Queens

Posted in art, pregnant, tate tullier photography on February 4, 2009 by tatephoto

I love doing series so with Rose, I just knew I had to do something fun and out of ordinary – so I told her to move around and kind of dance…. swing arms, shake hair from left to right so we could see the texture of her hair…… her beautiful belly just right there basking in its own glory. You know Violet (her baby’s name) is just going to be a dancing queen like her mom!

A dear friend, Rose, came over this past Sunday (and she even brought us dinner!) to do her pregnancy photos with Violet in her tummy.

Here is one shot in three different versions – I just loved it.
