I'm on a roll!

4 days, 4 sneak peeks...can you tell I'm over here working my tusch off?

The arrival of this couples' twins happened a little earlier than we all anticipated, and man, what a couple of CUTIES. Of course, they slept through our entire session, but that was because they had been up all night partyin' with mom and dad. I offered to come in the middle of the night with my camera since I seemed to have some sort of hypnotic effect on them.
With gorgeous Mommy, doesn't she look great?
They LOVE being snuggled up together and cry when they are apart...
This isn't helping my baby fever at all...

Hopefully I'll have a couple more sneak peeks tomorrow, and then I am off to NYC for the weekend again!!!! Don't worry, lots of galleries and returned calls/emails before then :) I'm on the VERGE of being caught up!!!

More fun at the beach

This beach shoot was with another photographer who drove all the way from Lousiana for our session, and for a one-on-one Devine U workshop! It was so fun to meet and hang out with these guys!!

Before the next beach sneak...

I must share some work from before the beach trip, before this newborn is, well, no longer a newborn!!
Faces familiar? That's because this may be my most photographed family ever. Their maternity images are all over my website, and will even be featured in an upcoming issue of The Bump. Big brother's newborn pictures? Made mommy bloggers everywhere weep. We're old pals.
And now---sweet baby Aidan has joined the clan, and another Baby Plan is under way! Big bro was very excited to see me again... And meet baby Aidan!

Big Bro is quite the rockstar (if you LOVE his bedroom, you too can have the designer do yours---his mommy! Check out the faux BRICK in this bachelor pad)

Beach Sneak Peek #1

Finally, without further ado...

Monday, July 21, 2008

Back- Sort of. Pretend I'm not.

So I'm back from my "break" and feeling yes, a little more rested than last Monday. Thank you to everyone for allowing me the additional time off!!

I know lots of you are anxious for your prints, your emails returned, your phone calls returned, your sessions to be proofed, your orders to be placed, and your sneak peeks to be posted...and I am doing the best I can to catch up. I promise I have not forgotten any of you and am working my way down a very long list, so I definetly appreciate your continued patience!!

Today I am working on returning messages and getting fall sessions booked, and I'll spend the rest of the week catching up on editing sessions and getting orders packaged up and ready to go, etc.

FYI--: only one Saturday left for the entire holiday season. (Sept-Nov) booked! We're currently booking weekdays . The cutoff for sessions with prints needed in time for the holidays is November 1st, after that prints cannot be guaranteed in time for the holidays without a rush fee.
And finally because I haven't posted a picture yet, a couple of my kiddos in Rosemary Beach. No beach pictures because Maddy, my youngest, wouldn't come within 3 feet of the sand the entire trip--she was terrified of it and would scream (ear bleeding shreeks, really) if I tried to put her near it. Oh, well...the joys of vacation with a toddler.

Let's try this again

Being that Rosemary Beach was absolutely gorgeous but in no way relaxing or refreshing (see my Twitter updates) I have decided to take today (Monday) to return phone calls and emails, but am taking the rest of the week off completely so I am ready to face the imminent holiday rush. Thank you again for your patience and understanding, and I apologize if you are waiting on proofs or prints.

Bon Voyage

And once again I bid adieu to you guys out there in blogland, I'll be checking in via Twitter if you want to follow my little work/vacation.

Just a reminder for my clients that I won't be around to check emails or return messages until July 14th, and at that point will be on part-time hours only until the basically, I'm gonna be a lil' slow the next few weeks. I'm due, don'tcha think?

So as I pack up a week's worth of stuff for 5 people, all of my photo equipment, and move my mother-in-law in to dogsit Lovey the Epileptic dog, I am waving to all of you and hope to return refreshed and renewed.

See ya!

Few random things--

First of all, I am frantically, frantically, frantically (wow after spelling that three times I don't think it's right) trying to catch up before my vacation, which technically was supposed to start YESTERDAY but looks like won't happen til, oh, I'm on the plane next Tuesday. So here's just a quick check-in with you guys:

-I'm working on a big sneak peek so that everyone who has had a recent session can at least see a little sumthin' before I leave
-I'm currently 7 sessions behind. I know. I don't know how it happens.
-Did you know Aaron Brothers is currently having their Buy One Get one for a Penny sale? I wait all year for that sucker
-Although Destin is a working vacation, after I shoot I am taking the rest of the week off with my family and won't be available through email or phone until the following week.
-I am currently booking for September. I do not have any availability the rest of the summer although a waiting list is available.
-Lots of people asking about workshops-we are working on "mini" parent workshops throughout the year, details to come

I love all of you so much for being so supportive and understanding, and giving me the most succesful year I've ever had so far! Looking forward to the next 6 months!

That's it! If you need me be sure you call/email by this weekend or you'll have to wait a bit!

:) D
