Studio Schedule and Family | Family portraits in Maryland

Typing this minus a thumb, if it didn’t hurt to move a few of my fingers, it wouldn’t be so bad… and of course, this is the long post…. I had a minor injury yesterday. I laugh because all of us have our “thing” once we get around 30-40 years old. My husband’s was semi pro football, now kayaking (a little safer LOL!)… my thing is my horses. I originally was just going to ride for fun, but I jumped a few times and even though I’m not really good at it, it is

    so… much… fun

So during my lesson last night, my horse did a “pop” over about a 2 foot jump (I know, I’m a whimp, that’s not very big of a jump…) and if you know anything about popping over a jump vs. jumping over it with a horse, I was in the air and came down on my horse’s neck, for some reason, landing mostly on my thumb. *sigh* Only me… I tell ya… so it’s either broke or jammed… probably jammed, but I’m not sure when I will have time to get it x-rayed… I have a full day of sessions today – thankfully, it’s my left hand… I was very proud though, to give up my thumb instead of falling. I’m not a very graceful person, (if you have seen me work, you know I trip over my own equipment in my studio) so this is quite the activity for a non-graceful person to get into… LOL ;)

At any rate, on to my post…. It’s that time of year again :) We are closing the studio for some family time as well as regroup as when the studio opens back up, the Christmas rush will begin! The studio will be closed from July 16th until August 2nd. We will reopen August 3rd.

We are currently booking sessions from August 2009 through January of 2010. Our Christmas cutoff will be during the first week of November. If you are wanting portraits done in time for Christmas or fall color portraits, PLEASE contact us now to be placed on the schedule. We book up very quickly this time of year.

IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR HAVE A BABY NOW OR WHILE THE STUDIO IS CLOSED, please call 443-299-2752 and leave a message with me. While I am away, I will still be able to receive voicemails, and will bring my calendar so we can fit you as first priority into the schedule. Newborns are always #1 priority.

I am so excited to be able to spend a few weeks with my family… speaking of family, here’s a series of a beautiful family that I could envision as a grouping on a wall in their home…
