A Christmas Update…

December 5, 2011

The blogs are complete. The boxes are packed complete with big bows! The Christmas cards have been designed. And all orders have been placed! :)

So, on that happy note, I wanted to give you a few studio updates:

1.Jodie and I will be taking our own little Christmas Vacation beginning tomorrow! We will be away from our emails and computers until January 3rd and enjoying some much needed time off with our sweet families who have been so very patient with us during this crazy busy season.

2. All emails and phone calls will be returned once we are “back in action” in early 2012. (Please note: If you call or email in regards to picking up an order that has already been placed, or if you are wanting to purchase a Gift Certificate, then I will get back to you. Additionally, if you are a mother of a previously scheduled Newborn Session for December or January and you need to speak with me concerning your session, I will return your email. All other inquiries will not be returned until January 3.)

2. Our calendar for December is closed. January and February are reserved for Newborn Sessions only. We have a couple of open spots at the very end of January, but the calendar is already full for sessions through January 22. If you are interested in scheduling a Newborn Session after January 22, send us an email and we will respond to you when we are back in the office beginning January 3rd.

3. Scheduling for outdoor sessions for Spring 2012 will begin in February. Details to come early next year!

Finally, this post would not be complete without me shouting out the loudest “THANK YOU!!” to all of my customers from 2011. Every year I think, it can’t get any better…and then it does! Every year that goes by, I enjoy this job more and more. My customers are my friends and I love you guys! I cannot thank you enough for your support of this little dream of mine that I get to live out day after day. What a joy and a privilege to call you customers and friends! God has been so very good, and I am beyond grateful.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above.” James 1:17 This verse is obviously very important to me, but never is it more relevant than at Christmas. God sent us His son. His most perfect gift. My prayer for each of you this Christmas is that you know HIS love and peace in your heart. Merry Christmas!!

And, because what’s a post without a photo? Here’s my two sweethearts with just a few from their recent shoot we did for the Torregrossa family Christmas Card! From our family to yours: Merry Christmas!!

Welcome, Lucas!

This was the most laid back family! So much fun to see first-time parents that are truly enthralled with their newest little gift. This little guy was absolutely PERFECT for his session. He barely made a peep throughout the entire thing and was a real champ. I so enjoyed meeting this family and am so happy for you all. Welcome to the world, little man! :)

Welcome, Kerrigan!

Yesterday, was the first full day of sunshine we have had here in several days and I was so happy to start my day with the bright sun! And, to add to the excitement, I was able to photograph two precious little newborns as well. First up was sweet little Kerrigan! At a little over two weeks old and almost nine pounds, this sweet baby girl was so good for her session. We started out with a few with new big sister, McKenna. Such beautiful girls and McKenna was already taken with her little sister. So sweet!

And, finally, sweet baby girl fell fast asleep. Yesterday, her favorite way to be was in her little Birthday suit! She was as happy as could be and let us pose and play with her as much as we wished. It was really funny. Who knew? Kerrigan, you have a great family. Welcome to the world, baby girl!
