reese turns one!

Well, my baby has turned one.  I can't even believe how fast her first year went!  We had a small party/bar b que for her this weekend with some close family and friends.  She had a great time and really enjoyed her birthday cake.  She is such a joy – so funny and nutty.  I can't wait to see what this next year brings…

new products

I've been working on getting some wonderful new products for the upcoming holiday season.  The gallery wrapped canvases are so beautiful and modern.  They can be ordered in any size – from 11×14 up to a 40×60.  They look great alone or in a group.

The newest additions are the custom preview box and the accordian wallet album.  I love the preview box because it is so unique.  It is specicially designed with a photo or photos from your session.  It can be purchased by clients who have placed a minimum order of $600.  Inside the preview box will be 50 4x6s from your session.  It is a wonderful gift and keepsake.

The accordian wallet is adorable and a great gift for the holidays.  It is a wallet sized album with 6 photos from your session.  There are many different covers to choose from and they come in sets of three.  They are perfect for parents and grandparents!

the mall

It was a crazy day at the Coral Springs Mall yesterday for the Back to School weekend and the annual Kids Konvention.  I had a table and spent the day there, meeting new people, talking about photography.  It was great that so many people stopped by to talk with me, sign up for email updates and to win a free session.  Because so many people entered to win the free studio session, I couldn't pick just one person.  Instead, I picked a few and set up a day of mini sessions in September (just in time for holiday cards and gifts!).  Thank you to everyone who came by and I look forward to seeing many of you in the future!
