So I’ve been booking sessions left and right for the next few months. I’ve gotten several requests/inquiries for weekend sessions so I wanted to come and post what I have left that is available.

Here is my schedule for upcoming weekends…


September 5th – maternity session

September 12th and 13th – senior session/work

September 19th… I have a conference

September 26th/27th … I’m working

So that leaves only the 6th and the 20th in September open if you want a weekend.


October 3rd – family session

October 17 – family session

October 24th – mini sessions

So that leaves the 4th, 10th, and 11th of October open if you want a weekend.


November 7th – mini sessions

November 14th – mini session backup date

Sessions done after the 14th will not be eligible for Christmas card orders because I won’t have them ready for you in time.

PLEASE NOTE: All Sunday sessions will be scheduled in the afternoon after 2pm.

E-mail me if you want to reserve a date!

Here is a compilation of ideas from myself and several other fantastic photographers of how to coordinate clothing for your photoshoot.

For families or sibling sessions…

Ideas for seniors…

Bear with me…

Yes… I realize I have several e-mails in my inbox that I need to reply to … if you have contacted me this week and not gotten a response yet… I’m so so sorry. I promise when I get a chance I will get back to everyone.

So I said when I started this business that it was going to be part time and that I’d only be doing one shoot per week. Well I’ve taken on a LOT more sessions than I said I would so right now I’m a bit overwhelmed and exhausted. I’m going to go back to booking fewer sessions for my own sanity. Being a full-time mom, part-time nurse, part-time photographer, and part-time graphic designer doesn’t leave much time for anything else. I have been staying up to the wee hours of the early AM to try and catch up… but I still never seem to catch up!!!  I am tired of neglecting my family, I’m tired of neglecting myself, and most of all… I’m just tired. LOL Perhaps I need a class on time management… or maybe I need an assistant….  take that back… what I REALLY need is a vacation!!

Anyhoo… I have noticed some people wanting to book really early for Christmas… smart move. I will likely be doing Mother’s Day Out pictures again in September… then October and November will be reserved for those who want kid/family pictures and custom Christmas cards. I have especially enjoyed doing senior sessions this year and look forward to seeing some 2010 seniors in the upcoming months… book early if you can! The prom shoot (see previous post) was a neat experience and I am considering doing some prom mini sessions next year if I can work it out.

Well… because I can’t make a post and not put up a picture… here is a Rhett collage! I must say he is getting better and better at cooperating for the camera. If you are wondering what he is doing in that middle one.. he is praying. I kept saying, “Look up at me… look at me…” and he replied, “Not right now… I’m praying to Jesus….” that just warms my heart…

Crazy Busy…

I’ve gotten several e-mails about booking sessions and haven’t had time to go through them all yet. If you have contacted me and not gotten a reply… give me a few days…

So after a few phone calls and several e-mails I realized that I sent home the wrong gallery access code. The one on the paper sent home was for the MDO staff. I got the right code for the wrong gallery!! So, I have changed the code for the gallery (of the kid’s pictures) to the one that was reflected in the letter sent home so it should work now…

Sorry about the inconvenience. Some of you were probably wondering if you were just going crazy… LOL… no… it was me!
