Now that I've had a little vacation time, I have been able to truly reflect on this year. I have met and photographed some amazing people - what a blessing! I thought it would be fun to highlight some 2008 session images. I've seen other photographers do this and I always enjoy seeing what they put together. I'm very excited about 2009! I have some items in the works that I will post very soon (hint - specials!).

I've been busy working on a brand spanking new Web site that I'm finally ready to share with everyone.


There will be updates made to it in the coming weeks, so please keep checking in.

I'd also like to show a preview of the newest collage available. I already have this one framed and hanging in my home:


One last thing to note, October is booked and I'm now scheduling sessions for mid-November.  If you are thinking about a session, call me!

If you are considering updating your family portrait, would like some fabulous holiday cards, or are just in the mood to be in front of the camera, the time to schedule is now. My calendar is almost booked for October and with the amount of inquiries that I've been getting, I suspect October will be fully booked soon. As a reminder, orders for holiday cards must be received by November 14 to ensure a timely delivery.  Sessions completed in 2008 can be rehosted if you want to choose images for holiday cards, etc.

Note to parents of newborn babies: I always try to squeeze newborn sessions in, no matter how busy I am.
