Today’s a play day

We’ve just been playing today.  We came up to my parents’ to visit my husband for the weekend.  This is a relatively short road trip for us, about 4 hours.  🙂

He had to work today, so the kids decided to fish off my parents’ dock today.  It was a great opportunity to get some photos, and then I got some landscapes.  Thought I’d share a few of them here with you.  🙂  If you’d like to see a few more, please feel free to take a look at my photography site, and see them.  🙂

Here’s some of the kiddos playing.  The landscapes are too large to upload, so feel free to check out my photography page to see them.

Hope you enjoyed!  😀

Shameless Plug for August :)

Photo of Kim EarleyAs I’m a WAHM, and a professional freelancer, I do many things.  This means I need to tell people what all I do… often.  So this is my “plug” for the month of August.  😀  Please, if you’re seeing this on Facebook, and know of someone who might need my services, please SHARE.  If you think you have a friend or family member that just might want my contact information, please send them to my Facebook site, this blog, or my website.   As a freelancer, I keep my options open, and the more offbeat the assignment seems, the more interested I am.  🙂

My website shows a bit of what I write about.  It is in the midst of a major re-design, but it has contact information and links in abundance.

My business resume is showcased at LinkedIn.  This will give you an idea of what all I have done in the business world, and some of the breadth of my knowledge, as well as the industries I’ve worked in.

Facebook page.  This is more of a contact me page, as I frequently post my articles and links there, but I also post favored quotes, and just chat here.  The advantage is that I’m frequently on Facebook, so I can be contacted quickly through this page.

Although my primary focus is writing, and I write on many subjects (which can all be found in this blog under “My Writing” category in the drop down box on the right, or on my primary website), I also offer many other services.

Some of my recent projects have included:

  • Lender Site Inspection (photography and business report)
  • Articles about tattoos
  • Articles about social networking
  • Articles about money-making ideas (ghost written)
  • One-on-one computer training
  • One-on-one business training (reception and office management skills necessary in the workplace)
  • Temporary Staffing for office and retail

Some projects that I’m currently being considered for include:

  • Group training:  using social media for your business

Offbeat and one-off projects are welcome.  If you’ve got a project that needs to get done, but the people in your organization aren’t sure where to start, or just don’t have the time to complete it, that’s when you call me.  With professionalism and integrity, I can help businesses or individuals in unusual situations.

Examples:

  • Want to take a week-long cruise, but you own a retail business and need someone to step in and run it while you’re gone?  I can do that.
  • Need a (Texas) Notary Public available on call?  I can do that.
  • Need help getting your new business office organized, policies and procedures in place, and help with hiring new employees?  I can do that.
  • Own a campground and haven’t had a vacation in years because you have no one to look after it while you’re gone?  I can do that.
  • Need someone to come in and teach your employees (or you) how to use social media to benefit their jobs?  I can do that.
  • Need someone to handle the social media for you, so you can focus on your business?  I can do that.
  • Need one-time, basic training on Quickbooks Pro (or Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.)?  I can do that.
  • Need someone to come in (or work remotely) once a week and do all of your billing, so you can focus on doing what you’re good at?  I can do that.
  • Need someone to travel to all of your stores within a certain area, taking photographs and reporting back to you on how the stores look?  I can do that.

If you’re looking for affordable help with an excellent skill set, that’s me.  I’ll work with you to create a pricing structure and schedule that fits your needs.  Call today!  Kim three-6-one-7-seven-1-eight-5-five-one.  Or contact me via email at: kimberlyearley ‘at’ yahoo-dot-com.

Updating Portfolio

So I’ve been updating my photography portfolio lately, and I need to continue working on it, but I wondered if I could get some constructive criticism.  If you have plenty of time, and feel like looking through some photos, would you check it out?  And let me know what you think?  I’d really appreciate it!  😀  Feel free to “rate” the photos right on the site, or come back here and leave me a comment.

Completely OT – Pinups

For those of you who come here from my Victoria Advocate blog, you may have already seen this… so this is for everyone else.  🙂

Completely off topic, but I ❤ Photography.  I’ve always been interested in glamour photography, and then I found pinup photography.  Now I’m doubly in love!!!  I am in talks with the owner of a company, Sweet Tart Pinups to do potentially offer their style photography throughout the U.S. (as a photographer/representative).  Due to our lifestyle (homeschooling, traveling), it is a possibility… and one that I’m interested in exploring.  What a job!  To travel, make women see how beautiful they are, and providing them with photos that are gorgeous!!

So, if you have a moment, and don’t mind participating in some unofficial market research, please visit their website… and then come back and tell me what you think.  Do you love it?  Would you be interested in booking something like this if you knew the photographer could come to you?  Or would you be more comfortable traveling to a permanent studio?  What do you think?
