Thanks to all those who had sympathy for my computer woes the last few weeks. The hugs and consoling while I ranted were helpful, believe it or not! Well, I’m so thrilled to be typing this from my very FAST computer! It’s been a few days without one at all, weeks of fighting malware, and YEARS of it working so slow. It’s new nickname is Speedy. I think it actually works better now than it did new! Is that possible? I have to give kudos to Brad at The Rescue Team. He did an amazing job getting rid of everything that made work impossible, including the malicious infection that so many people are struggling with. And here’s a tip he passed on…if you’ve fought virtumonde/vundo and think you got rid of it but can’t do windows updates, then you probably didn’t get rid of it. Call him. He’ll find every little bit of it and squash it.
Before Christmas, my computer got hit by one of the worst trojans out there… virtumonde aka vundo. I’ve been fighting it for weeks, and it’s rendered my computer virtually useless. I haven’t been able to do any client work, or even load a new DVD burner I’ve been needing to use. My computer is now in the hands of someone who can hopefully help.
You don’t need to go anywhere questionable on the web to get struck. The infection happened while opening an account at Gigasize.com to send large files to a client, and I don’t know if their site is to blame or not, but I have since found out that it wouldn’t have happened if my Java was updated. Protect your computer and your wallet…keep Java updated!

I love maternity sessions. They’re my roots in portrait photography, and I still enjoy the time I get to spend with expecting parents, anticipating the new life coming into their lives. This one’s a little different… but the hands say it all.
A single sneak peek for the parents of this brand new little guy:
Last year, life happened, and I neglected my old blog. But the new year brings a brand new blog that I’ll be using to keep you updated on everything happening at Lauri Baker Photography, including contests, special promotions, and new offerings. I’ll also be sharing my personal art projects, sneak peeks on your sessions, and discussion of just about anything I find interesting. Hope you’ll drop by often!
