quick shout out! Tuesday, Oct 7 2008 

I just want to give a quick shout out to one of my fellow Rangerettes….Eliza West. Eliza had an interview on TV with one Patricia Araujo. Eliza is a volunteer at the Ethan Allen Homestead.

Check it out here.


I love attention… Monday, Apr 28 2008 

So this post is old…but I thought I would share it with you anyways:

Isabella :-) Monday, Apr 28 2008 

For those of you who haven’t heard yet…Lauren’s daughter, my niece, has been named Isabella Jozlynn. Is that not the cutest/prettiest name for a little future ranger-ette? πŸ™‚

Only a few more months until we get to meet her!

Second year in a row!! Sunday, Jan 27 2008 

I just wanted to take the time to share some exciting news πŸ™‚ I am once again a Finalist in Photographer’s Forum 28th Annual College Photography Contest, co-sponsored by Nikon. This year over 4,000 students participated from the United States, Canada, and countries around the world. The top 5% of this group were chosen to be Finalists. This photograph of mine will be published in the Best of College Photography Annual 2008, a hardbound publication.

Her due date is July 24th.

any interest?? Wednesday, Nov 14 2007 

OK so I know I haven’t posted on this blog in it seems like forever, BUT I have been “blogging”. I have a NEW BLOG that I use for more of a journal now. I also just launched my website this past Sunday www.megancharland.com. It still needs some work, but I made it all by myself and I’m proud of the job I did πŸ™‚ So check out my new blog and website and let me know what you think!

On another note more related to this blog… This spring I want to do a full production photo shoot. My plan is to try to get as many 18th century reenactors together at my mother’s house in Peru, NY as possible. I’m a poor college student, so I will be unable to pay you, BUT I will buy yummy food and we can have a cook out πŸ™‚ Also, by signing a modelling contract for me I will give you your choice of prints (up to four (4) 8″x12″ glossy or luster) from the shoot. My goal is to get between 10-15 participants. This is all in the beginning planning stages so right now I’m just seeing if there is any interest. More details to follow…

A work in progress…as always comments welcome πŸ™‚


hard core Monday, Jul 30 2007 

Organizer’s list:

Shave before the events (2-3 days max).
– If possible, prefer these items over other clothes:
breechclouth (brayet)
wool leggings (mitasses)
white shirt (chemise blanche)
oxhide shoes (souliers de boeufs)
red tuque or kerchief (tuque rouge ou mouchoir)
– Try not to wear any combinations of hats (ex. tricorn and
kerchiefs, …).

This was sent in an e-mail from my captain, with specific instructions from the organizer’s of the Crown Point Grand Encampment event next weekend. I don’t know why it ammused me so, I just thought it was so odd that they actually specified that you must shave 2-3 days before the event. Well I don’t know about the men, but I had every intention of shaving that Friday morning. Sorry Captain, but I will be all nice and smooth…what will my punishment be?

LOL πŸ™‚
