They Better Have Driven the Speed Limit!

This was the VERY FIRST FAMILY I ever photographed and they came in for Holiday Photographs this morning.

Little Bug (the baby...don't worry his parents call him that!) is faster than a speeding bullet...and if not THAT fast I KNOW he's faster than the camera's shutter!!

A lot of smiles and a blast to take photos with...I promised them a sneak peek by the time they got home. So I WAS faster than a speeding bullet picking a favorite photo and editing it in time for their arrival home. SO....they better have not driven faster than the speed limit...or I'm in trouble!

Merry Christmas!

A Gorgeous New Attorney

I am happy to announce the studio is now, well almost, minus some painting, complete! I was so excited to be shooting in it this weekend. I know I've been MIA...but I have been busy preparing for the upcoming Holiday Mini Sessions!

I was so looking forward to my first shoot in the studio and had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful attorney. She is returning to Southern Colorado to practice after attending law school in Wyoming. Now I don't know much about law, but she passed her bar exam on the first try, and from what I understnad that is no small feat. So watch out for her!

A few from our weekend session! She has a gorgeous smile and was so easy to photograph!

Holiday Greeting Cards-Card B

Well, everything seems like it is going to be easier than it actually is. Uploading these templates falls into that catagory. So here is my test...yes at 2:45am...but I need to make sure it works.

So something to whet your whistle until I get the rest uploaded tomorrow...well today...

Most cards will be offered in a 5x7 postcard or folded format. Text is changeable and if you have a special greeting or quote you would like to use it can be customized.

Printed samples will be available at your session so you can make the best choice for your Holiday cards!
