2 Days Until We Set Sail!

A senior shoot & a maternity session is on my schedule before me & the hubby take the kids on a Disney Cruise.  That's right, as of Sunday I'm on va-ca-tion!  According to my calculations, I have had a YTD total of 52 sessions, 4 weddings & 5 portrait parties - WOW - seeing the numbers makes my jaw drop.  I cannot believe how busy I've been and thank God for the work and for the people I've met through my photography this year.  Thanks everyone!! 
Soooo, I came across a big sale that a local swimwear store was having and couldn't pass up the deals (everyone knows I'm a bargain hunter).  Is this why it's called a SUITcase?
I admit, that's too many suits to take with me (I said it was a "big" sale).  I intend on downsizing a bit, but it's not going to be easy b/c I love all my new suits.  Besides, I have to make some room for my camera ;-)
Our vacation is going to be like a deep inhale because when I get back, it-is-ON!  The next 2 months I'm literally going to be shooting, editing, shooting, editing.....10 sessions on the book & 4 portrait parties.  December is dedicated to my family and Jesus' birth unless something can't wait.
Back to packing!

I'm Happy to Help!

My services don't stop when I post your photos to my website - I am more than happy to help you with ideas of how to display your images.  Plus, I just love working with these nifty templates I got just for that purpose.
Here's a wall idea:  Canvases...1-16x24, 1-17x11, 2-8x12 (of course, you could always adjust the sizes a bit AND you could always do framed prints instead of canvas)
Featured in the images above is the Rabon family.  You can see all the photos in their gallery here.

Speaking of helping...let me help you pick the perfect Christmas card to send to your friends & family this year.
You can view my Christmas card collection here.  I'll be adding more choices soon!

Merrill/Bowen Wedding (2nd Shooter)

I like to make myself available to assist my photographer friends when I can - hey, if I'm behind the camera, I'm happy.  I'm especially happy when I get to work with Rachel.  I got to be the 2nd shooter at a wedding she did at Brookgreen Gardens last weekend.  Thought I would post a few of my shots. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Bowen & thanks Rachel, hope to see you soon!

When dad grabbed her hand, it was the sweetest thing...
I think he likes what he sees ;-)
Of course, I had to get Rachel in action (hehehe)

I'm Blogging!!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Thought I would take a stab at this blogging thing (instead of facebook blogging).  It's hard to believe, but there are some folks who are not on facebook yet so I thought I would create a blog for those non-facebookers to see sneak peeks instead of stalking my photography website for the most recent shoots.   You know, because I have ALL this free time.  
Seriously, I hope this doesn't BLOG me down.  ;-)
