Belly Photography

Today was a day of photography play. Sarah has been long overdue for maternity pictures and since her photographer lives so close we decided that today would be a great day to snap a few shots. Below is just a few that stood out to me as a celebration of the new development to our small family. Less than two months left before the big change, but first comes the baby shower next weekend. More on that later, have a great week!

Gadget Awesomeness

Every once in a while a product comes along that revolutionizes the way we currently do things. The new-to-me wireless SD Card is one of those products. I say new-to-me because somewhere deep in my overloaded brain I recall reading about this product. Eye-Fi has developed a product that works with Wi-Fi Networks to send photos from digital cameras to home networks and on-line websites. As soon as the camera that contains the wireless SD Card comes into the home network it will automatically upload the images on the card to your computer. To make it even cooler you can set it up to automatically upload the images to on-line websites such as Facebook and SmugMug to name a couple. The Eye-Fi is currently only for SD Cards, but when they start making the Compact Flash cards with this technology I can see a new advancement in the professional photography industry. Until then I will have to settle for the $800 Nikon WT-4af Wireless Transmitter.

Oh, and back to my overloaded brain. Eye-Fi has teamed up with Evernote giving me the ability to take a picture of text such as business cards, restaurant receipts, or anything else I want to remember. Evernote has developed recognition software that will read the text off of an image and categorize it so I can retrieve it later. Incredible!

Modern Baby

I am surprised, astonished, even shocked that my Internet savvy friends find it odd that Sarah and I would create a website solely dedicated to our unborn daughter. Either way the power of Show IT Sites has given us the ability to create, add and recreate any number of websites with ease. Our daughter’s website example now includes images of her baby room, a mom’s journal, and a registry page informing our friends and family where we are registered. I really enjoy taking advantage of all the technology available to us and when our 3-D ultra sound video is complete later this month I put it on her website. This is only the beginning. With the merge of two industries, still photography and videography, our websites will soon include short video clips giving our future brides a look at what is like to have us shoot their wedding.

The personalizing websites don’t stop with our daughter. Imagine what it would be like to have a fully customized website for your wedding. You can inform your friends and family of all the exciting events of your day, link guests to your registries, and show off those beautiful images by Matt Hall Photography! It is just one more way we are helping make your wedding day be an unforgettable day.
