Only 2 Sessions Left in October

Just a little note to all looking to get Fall pictures in. I have only 2 more dates available for the month of October. There are a few dates available for November, but as most of you know it can get a bit chilly.
*I will always make room for newborns due too the time sensitivity, please contact me if you are interested in a newborn session and I can give you an available schedule*

Currently I am working on a space in my home for winter mini-sessions. These sessions will not last as long as my normal on location sessions and will come at a reduced session rate (think about holiday cards). Speaking of holiday cards, I have many new templates coming out in the next week or so. These mini-session would be great to get a family photo for those Holiday Cards. If you have already had a session with me you can still order holiday cards. Deadline for holiday card orders is November 15th. Please contact me if you are interested in custom printed and designed holiday cards. Examples will be posted on the blog soon!

And since I must post a picture. This is my new favorite. Mom and the little guy were major troopers for this photo. More of him to come in a later post.

A. Another beautiful Senior

I just love working with Seniors. She was such a trooper with all my ideas.

I just love my senior sessions. This was done at her church where she is very involved in the youth groups and community. So inspiring to be around.

T and Family

You may recgonize them from their Maternity session. Now there is 3. He was a very alert little guy even at just under 2 weeks, but still handsome as ever.
And he likes to sing like daddy too!

Such a sweet little guy. He was so good.

I've been tagged

I have been "blog tagged" by two fellow photographers. Debbie Hobbs and Tasha. Basically I am supposed to tell you 8 things you may not know about me and tag 8 more photographer friends around the country. Some clean inter-blogging fun...and a way for all my blog watchers to get to know me a little better.

1- I LOVEEEE green. It is my favorite color in all shades. Why do I not use it for my color story? I tried it, but it was not soothing enough for all the avenues of photography I do. I also have a thing for stars. Some of you that know my Flickr screen-name, this is all starting to come together for you ;)

2- I knit, crochet, sew, build, paint (paintings, walls and murals). I still get commissioned to do murals here and there. I grew up very renaissance as far as we were taught to do everything craft, art and building. I got accepted to a private art school when I was in 2nd grade and have been art school through college.

3- I am a self taught photographer and photoshop user. I research a ton and learn a lot by trial and error. Photography is so wonderful, I couldn't imagine my life without it. My wonderful photog friends (some of the ones that tagged me) and I share a lot of info with each other across the country. Such a great way to learn.

4- I have a Fashion Design Degree. I studied Couture Evening and Bridal at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. I loved it and still do, but there is not much of that here in VA, so I found other creative avenues to play in. Project Runway ROCKS!!!

5- I have 3 kids....yikes! Daughter 8, son 4 (5 in a week or so) and son 6 months. They are the best munchkins ever, and are super patient with mommy and her photog business and with my other job. My hubby couldn't be more supportive either.

6- My other job. I work for my hubby almost full time, some weeks more than full time as a Patent Draftsman. I draw inventions all day on the computer. Very boring...but lucrative and I can do it from home, so I can raise my babies and be a photographer. I wouldn't change it (until I can get someone to replace me) so I can be full time Photog ;)

7- I am not afraid of much and will pick up snakes and lizards. I will also save baby wild animals. When my husband met me at 19 yo, I had 10 orphaned Opossums that I was hand feeding. I am amazed that he stuck with me through that. He says that I am a magnet for them. There is no way to count how many orphans I have found or have come to me over the years. I also have no fearS of height, and have a high tolerance for pain.

8- I stop for turtles. This kinda goes with 7 but it is one of my "things" that my hubby gives me a hard time about. I will literally go up the road, turn around and move the turtle to the side (in the direction he was going...obviously he had somewhere to be, why turn him backwards). My hubby stresses it because he doesn't like me being in the road. I told him my odds were way better than the turtle's :)

Now I am off to tag 8 of my photog friends. Thanks for reading. I will be posting some new news in the next couple of days!
