They Call Me Reflector-Girl -- Robin

My husband and I have agreed it’s time to diversify. Not just our stocks and bonds or our selection in pizza toppings (especially since I don’t eat pizza anymore).

Hubby has decided to expand his photojournalism skills into the world of wedding photography. Which means he’s going to need an assistant. Which means…me!

My job will be to hold the huge reflector that bounces that beautiful natural light right into the bride and groom’s eyes. My job will also be to remind him not to stand on the bride’s dress and to please, please, take pictures of the cake and flowers...cuz brides love that stuff. Other than that, the rest is up to him.

Which is a good thing for these newlyweds, because he is awesome at what he does…

If you’re interested in photojournalism or weddings (or pictures of my kid) check out his new website:

Meanwhile, I’m going to work on my reflector-holding skills...which I’ve heard is good for those stubborn flabby underarm parts. Yeah for me! Reflector-Girl is on the job!

Robin - your husband's photos are AMAZING!! Seriously! His composition is flawless and I have great taste in art if I do say so myself!

He needs to have a show - does he ever do that? He could sell these. If you ever make your way down to Mississippi, let me know way in advance and I am gonna try to get him a show at the art gallery. He's GREAT!!!!

Get this boy an agent! I can't stop ranting....sorry!

oh! (good luck with the reflector) But I think you need to be his marketing agent.

One more thing...

I'm cracking up at how Jayson just seems to wind up "on the scene" during what appears to be drug busts and natural disasters and odd touching moments!!!

How does he do it?

Have to agree, absolutely amazing photos on his site. I love the one with the two boys on the beach... and please tell me the dog on the surfboard is photoshopped! ; )

Jayson doesn't seem to be showcasing his awesome author photos.

Hmm...

Thank you Katie, for the awesome comments. You can rant any time!

And Adrian, that dog has been surfing regularly ever since he was a puppy. The photo ran in the LA Times and it was picked up by a company to be made into a greeting card! It also ran inside In Touch magazine. I coudn't figure out why in the world a celebrity tabloid would run that picture. The cutline under it said, "Matthew McConaughey isn't the only one who likes to surf." That's what it really said!! Good grief.

And Jay, you're right about needing to show his awesome author photos. (Yours.) Hopefully someday he'll be making one for me! (Though I have to keep reminding him it will NOT be with me in a bathing suit on top of a Ferrari.)

Wow, he is amazing! Where was Jayson at my wedding when we needed him? huh?

Jayson IS amazing. I love all of his work - especially the photos of his favorite subjects.

I think he could have a huge sideline in author photos if he wanted. I'm definitely in line one of these days...

Beautiful work! And I wanted to say many's the time I was "reflector girl" for my photographer Dad. Maybe you can make your reflector board a wobble board and entertain the crowds with "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" on the side.

Wow! His photographs are incredible!

And I'm sure you are a most accomplished Reflector Girl. ;-)
