Craziness, just craziness…. and Holidays coming ;)

So again, this blog has been neglected.  Well, a lot of things have been going on.  I was in a whirlwind of commercial ad campaigns as well as juggling the holiday client rush.

Some things I would like to note:

1.  If you are a photographer and are asking about workshops, please email me at to be placed on the waitlist.  I will be announcing 2011 workshops to the waitlist first.  We are having a workshop in  January, but that was filled within a week to our waitlist only.

2.  Current Clients:  I’m doing the best I can getting your galleries up and ready for you.  If I told you that you will be able to receive prints by Christmas, then yes, you will receive them by Christmas 🙂  Due to the commercial productions discussed above, I’ve been working overtime to get everything edited and ready for you.

3.  New Clients:  I am not taking any more holiday portrait sessions and have not been able to book holiday portrait sessions for over a month now.  The schedule filled completely up.  Our next available date is in 2011.  HOWEVER, if you are pregnant and expecting a newborn or have given birth recently, I will fit you in.  Newborns are our only exception since there is a small window of opportunity to get newborn portraits.

4. Studio Info: The studio is currently closed until Monday, November 29th due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please understand that we do need to shut down for some family time during the holidays. The studio will also be closed from December 10th through 14th as well as December 20th through the New Year.

I’m excited to announce a few things this upcoming week that relate to those productions discussed, so stay tuned 😉

Here are some early fall images – I promise to be sharing more as the backlog of holiday galleries starts to clear up!
