Hopefully we are working again!

Thanks to all of you who are referring me. Really, it is an honor to know that you are happy and telling others. I am excited to meet all of the new clients! Remember that I am on vacation next week (yea, me!) but you can reach me by phone or email. On to the fun stuff. I had these twin boys down from Dallas last week, and the whole family was great. It is nice to have a relaxed and laid back session and that is what they had. These boys are gonna break some hearts. Hope you guys had fun at Sea World!

Mini Sessions Are Closed

We are all booked up on the mini sessions. I will be emailing out the time slots by the end of the week. I am excited and a little stressed about the holiday season :) Most of the displays are up (see news on my website)...check in, you may see your son or daughter in a display. They may be famous and not even know it:)
I photographed this little cutie recently, and although this is sad...she is sooooo cute. I just couldn't toss it.

I haven't been lazy...

I know it appears that I have been very lazy in updating this blog, but it is truly technology issues. I have made multiple attempts to upload all the sweet little sneak peeks that I have but it continues to crash when I add images. I am looking into another blog and will probably make the change soon. I did want to update those looking to do mini sessions for Christmas, I only have 2 left, so if you are interested call me right away. I will also be going on vacation (yea, me!) from September 6-17, so there will be no sessions or previews appointments available during that time. I will be accessing email and will be available by may hear waves crashing in the background when I answer, but you will get me. Hope all is giong well and everyone is adjusting to their new sleep schedules!

Christmas Cards Are Here!

Let the madness begin:) I know that I start stressing out about Christmas and cards early, and most of you do as well. Here is the plan.
Some of the cards you will see are one of a kind, some are not, however, I will only sell one of each template. This will be done on a first come, first serve basis. You see one you like? Call or email me, and as soon as I receive the $50 deposit (all of which is applied to your card purchase) your template will be pulled from the site. Just let me know which image (or images) you would like and I will email you the design for approval. I will offer one revision at no cost. Many of the designs can be somewhat customized. We can always change the wording and if there is room, we can add more images, or use less. I can also design a card for you, or you can use an image as a full bleed card front. All but 2 of the designs are 5X7 which can be ordered as folded cards, or 5X7 photo cards on either art paper or metallic. The cards are $2.00/each for 100+ or $2.50 each for less than 100. I will offer 20% off to all clients who buy cards using an image from a session completed prior to Sept. 15th. All orders must be placed and finalized by November 18th. October 1st is mini session day. I will schedule 6 mini sessions that will last 30 minutes. There won't be time for clothing changes since we will be on a tight schedule. You will get between 10-15 proofs to choose from online, and 50 Christmas cards for $150.00. I can only schedule 6 of these, so book now.
To view the templates, go to, and go to the proofing section. The password is Christmas. The name of the template will be in the bottom left corner when the image is enlarged.
Hope you all are having a wonderful first week of school.

How sweet is that???

It always makes me remember to cherish the little moments when I see an image like this one. She is pushing him away and he is on his tiptoes to kiss her. Love really is the little things.

Oh, and my site is down...I have calls into the hosting company, but no ETA on a fix yet, sorry!

I guess because school is about to start, it is a good time to get emotional. Don't our kids grow up so fast??? Sometimes it would be nice just to slow it down a little. My little guy is going to be 5 this month and I cannot believe it. I still carry him whenever I can, he will be the only kid in 3rd grade whose mom still tries to pick him up:) Hopefully, I will be over it by then. He has told me that when he is grown up and married, he and his wife will live next door to me, so I'm good:) My little girl is now starting 2nd is crazy.
Speaking of family...and second grade for that matter, I had a wonderful family who obviously love each other so much. I really, really enjoyed them. This is the first one I have opened to proof (it has been a busy week), but I love how close they look.

Good luck on Monday to everyone...I'm sure I will see lots of you there:)

Well, believe it or is coming up quick. Time to think about Christmas cards. The way I am planning to do this is still in the works, but I will post all the details next week. One thing I have decided, is to offer designs on a first come, first serve basis. Next week, I will upload several designs to the proofing portion of the website (I will put the password here in the blog). Clients can log in and view choices. These will be taken off the list once a design is reserved. I will be offering a discount to those who want to use an image from a session prior to September 15th, and will also offer 6 mini session packages (again, first come, first serve). I will finalize all the details and get them out there soon. The last card orders will be taken on Novemeber 18th...:) Hope everyone is ready for school, it is about the get crazy.

Cutie Patootie!

I am loving proofing this little guy. Absolutely a doll. I kept calling him a "pretty boy" during the session...Sorry, Mom:) But he was honestly such a sweet boy. My thoughts are with you, buddy!

What did I do to deserve this?

I have had the most cooperative and well behaved children lately! They aren't even supposed to be cooperative when they are this little. I have just been very lucky:) In all honesty... I really appreciate the wonderful clients I have had. It has been a pleasure to meet so many of you, and it means the world to me that you have referred me to friends and family.
These two were a breeze, and did I mention cute? It's all about picking out of the candy bowl at the end of the session. I love that candy bowl:)
