No excuses

      To say that I have neglected this blog would be a major understatement. If my blog were a child I would have been visited by CPS and had it taken away from me. I have no excuses. I simply did not blog (at all) in 2014. And for this major oversight, neglect and ignorance, I am sorry. I will right this wrong.
     2015 is being ushered in by new dreams and goals for my business. I am streamlining not only the type of sessions I will take on, but also the quantity. I intend to improve on quality, style and my overall technical skill. Communicating with my clients is going to be a major point of emphasis as well. I will spend much more time before, during and after a session making sure the client is given the utmost in service and final product. With this emphasis and intention, I have had to adjust my pricing. That did not necessarily translate to "higher" prices as much as valuing the time I will be putting into each gallery with each and every client. I will offer more options as far as purchasing digital negatives as well as continuing to offer high quality, print house images and products that my clients have come to know and expect. I have added a new line of wedding albums to my collection that are of the highest quality and I will be offering those to my limited wedding clientele.
    I have purchased brand new equipment such as a new camera, lenses, newborn accessories and even a hand crafted in studio backdrop that is pictured below. We have finished out our in-home studio and I am beyond excited about how it turned out. I hope to fill it with more accessories, but more than that, more memories of squishy newborns, celebrated 1st birthday shoots,  and occasional commercial shoots with some of my favorite vendors.
    Please remain patient with my posts, as I am transitioning during this "slow season" and plan on keeping my clients and friends updated on SDP changes, special opportunities and wonderful behind the scenes of all my upcoming sessions!
    Below are some images of my updated (and always changing studio setup). I share my 1000sqft space with my kids. They have a homework space and tv area. It works out well as I typically shoot when they're at school. My grandfather and mother made my new backdrop and it changes from off white to dark stained wood. I haven't used it yet. So stay tuned for my first shoot next week on it!

What a great space, I love it! I can't wait to see the images you take next!

There is nothing I love more than being behind a camera capturing life’s moments - wonderful, funny, messy, precious, indescribable, irreplaceable,memorable moments.
