Our Little Rock and Roll Princess

The other day in the car she asked to hear, "What's that man that wears the make up to try to be scary?"

"Marilyn Manson?" I suggested.

"Yea, Marilyn Manson. Can we hear a song by him?"

Today she declared that she likes Clutch. I'm very proud. She's a little four year old metalhead.

I've Hung Out a Shingle

I'm so excited about my sign! I have a real sign painted by a real sign painter. I've had a retail store before but it was in another store and I didn't have my own entrance. Now I have my own entrance. And a sign so you know which entrance is mine. The one with MY SIGN.

The shop is looking pretty cool. I'm almost ready to photograph the inside of it for you. I still need new track lights, a few more framed pictures, some more screens, maybe a wood floor... It'll be a work in progress for a while.

But I have my sign out.

Our New Studio!

Today we went to clean up our new studio that opens tomorrow. We rented a glass annex that opens into Yolanda, a very upscale wedding gown boutique. We will specialize in wedding photography but will continue to do kids and whomsoever else wants us to open and close a shutter very fast in front of them. We are extremely excited and not at all ready to open tomorrow. We should have signage on Friday, framed pictures on the wall on Friday, lighting etc. by Friday. Seems like Friday would be a good day to open, huh?

But I can't wait so I'm opening our big empty studio tomorrow. We will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1pm to 9pm, and Saturdays from 10am or so until 5pm. We might come in on some Fridays as well.

So now Felix Rust Photographer has a home base. This all came about thanks to my wonderful assistant, Erica, and some amazing timing. Please come and visit us if you find yourself near Boston.

Magali's Party at Build-a-Bear

We took Magali to Build-a-Bear for her 4th Birthday party. After everyone built their bears we walked over to Quincy Market and had cake. Everyone had a great time and there was nothing to clean up... except Magali and Dash and Ryan and Cooper and Lucy and Annelise.

My Uncooperative Children

Dash was flipping out about something and was really angry. I got the camera and said, "I want to take a picture of 'Angry Dash'." That diffused the situation and this is the face he gave me instead. He knows I don't like "smiley" pictures...

Magali said, "I don't want you to take my picture." and she buried her head in the couch pillows. I asked her, "Can I take a picture of your butt, then?"

"OK." She said.
