The Latest Xander

Photo Blog

As a photographer it's expected that I have a blog where I post images from shoots, prior to showing my clients their proofs. I've avoided this because I feel like I'm all over the web map and it's just one more space to maintain. But, I've finally given in and started a Christina Mallet Photography Blog.

Chloe, My Faithful Model

My Niece Chloe is a great model. She patiently sits, even when I mess up her hair.

She's also willing stand on my balcony dressed like an old lady.

Sherylonicle, Part I

My Mom, Chez Moi
My Mom, aka Sheryl, on round two of breast cancer, has enlisted me to photo document her treatment.
We had our first 'shoot' this weekend, during a wig shop outing that turned into a hair shaving outing.

The nice stylist wigs at Hair Options in Greenwood, wigs my Mom.

My Mom is pretty, and I like this shot so it's a keeper.

After narrowing down the wig selection, Mom goes outside to check the color in natural light.

It was my idea--I couldn't help it. It's so Cat in The Hat.

We've found a wig, now off with her head, of hair.
Don't try this at home, it will hurt.

Pile o' Hair.

Off with it.

The Last Stand, for a while anyway.

This Epic? It's long.

Which is why I am going to list it.

First though, Happy New Year!

1. Alex's Mom was diagnosed with cancer in early December
2. Alex had knee surgery in early December
3. I had to call 911 night after his surgery because his eyes rolled up into his head and he looked dead. Oxycontin is not his drug of choice.
4. Two weeks after his surgery, we went to Germany to spend Xmas with his mother. There, Alex's knee become so infected that he had to be hospitalized and had 4 German surgeries (that might be a cool band name).
6. Our house sitter had an 'accident' with the house alarm and the cats are now deaf and familiar with the cops in the hood.
7. I kind of crunched a family friend's car in Germany.
8. I flew home solo, with a 16 month old who screamed bloody murder for 11 hours straight.
9. I came home to learn that my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, again.

All of this, combined with thoughts like "recycling the cat food cans is a moot point given the world will come to an end in my lifetime" and you have one crappidy dappity year ahead.

The good stuff:
Alex comes home tomorrow, finally.
