Special # 3!!!

Ok, today my offer is pretty fun. I'm excited about it because I love Christmas cards...designing them, taking pictures for them, sending them, receiving them, all of it. So today, the first person to book a session and mention this special will receive 50 free holiday cards with the favorite image from the session! How fun is that? Below is an example of what your 50 free cards might look like.....

*Again, this offer can't be combined with any of the other offers going on below....but you can certainly use them for different sessions. For example, you could book a holiday session and receive 50 free holiday cards, and then use your double value gift certificates for another session next year. Let me know if anyone has any questions!!!

Tallahassee Special

Hello this week is going to be full of special offers, and today is for my Tallahassee clients. My next trip to Tallahassee is going to be November 2nd-November 6th. If you refer someone to book a session during that trip, then you get a free session AND a free 8x10 of your choice from the session. That's a $70 value!!! Portrait sessions are up to an hour in length and they include an online gallery for you to show off to all your friends and family. This is the perfect time to have pictures done...use them for your Christmas card or for Christmas presents. If you are intersted, please email me ASAP. There are only so many openings during my 5 day stay. Hope to hear from you!!!
*this offer is not valid in combination with the offer may certainly take advantage of both offers, just not for one session (you can't win a free session and 8x10 and also use your double value gift certificate to buy pictures from that session)

Hello everyone! I'm excited to announce I am launching a BIG sale this week on gift certificates. I'm so thankful for the huge increase in business this year, so this is kind of my way of saying thank you. Christmas is right around the corner and I know that means everyone is spending like crazy. :-) So, hopefully this offer will help. Here's how it works....

For the next 7 days (Oct 27th-Nov 2nd) all gift certificates purchased will be worth double the value paid. What does this mean? If you buy a gift certificate for $25, it will be worth $50!!! Buy them for friends or relatives as gifts for the holidays....or buy them for yourself. I've had a lot of clients purchase these recently and it's such a great present. Gift certificates may be purchased at a maximum value of $100 for this deal. So, if you spend $100...that means your gift recipient gets a $200 credit for sessions and prints!!! This offer is only valid for NEW sessions booked....i.e. if you have already scheduled your newborn's session, you'll have to use this offer to book their 6 month portrait session...or some other session down the road. Another reason to buy these now is because starting in 2009 my prices will be changing. Buy a gift certificate this week and you lock in the 2008 rates. Gift certificates purchased this week won't expire until 12-31- 2009. really is a great deal!

Email me with any questions at . Have a great day!!!!

Doug Waechter's K's for Kids Golf Tournament

Today I took pictures at the Doug Waechter's K's for Kids Golf Tournament. It was a fundraiser for K-life in St. Petersburg, which is the youth ministry my husband and I volunteer for. As you can see in the second picture...the wind was blowing pretty hard. Not the best conditions for golf, but we had a great time.
Lauren and Brian...our awesome new staff.
Lauren, me, and Heather...crazy hair.

Just wanted to share a picture I took of my friends Devon and Jaxon with their daughter Ava while I was visiting them in Panama City Beach recently. We didn't have time for a full out session...but this one turned out pretty cute. It was great seeing them. I wish we lived closer!

Baby Portrait Session - Tampa, FL

Take a look at sweet and handome little Charlie. He is such a good baby! My favorite picture is the one at the very bottom after he fell asleep on the outdoor furniture. How perfect is that for a photo session? I wish all my baby clients would take a little snooze so I could capture such a cute moment!

Family Session # 2 - Panama City Beach, FL

Here is the my second session while in Panama City Beach. This little boy has more energy than any child I've ever met. I was tired after spending 45 minutes with him, so I know his parents must get a serious workout every day. He was all smiles and fun though, so we had a great time. Such a cutie!

Engagement Session - Havana, FL

I am so excited about doing this couple's wedding in November! We took these pictures at her parent's farm in Havana. I LOVE the location. They are the sweetest people and I just know their wedding is going to be a good ole' country get together. She even told me they made an annoucement in the local newspaper so that everyone in town would be invited. How awesome is that? I love small towns! Here are a few favorites...

So...I'm deep into editing this week and spending all my extra time working quickly to get everything done. I've had so many sessions lately! Today I spent a few hours working on images from several different families. Honestly, at first I was kind of dreading it. But once I got started I began to enjoy the process even more than usual. I realized how much I love seeing the beauty in so many different people. Some subjects are gorgeous and others are average, but I always LOVE the way the images come together as a whole. It's not about raw's about how beautiful it is capture love, laughter, silliness, passion, attitude, and everything else in an image. I'm rejuvenated today by my discovery and very thankful to have the best job in the world. Thank you to all my beautiful clients for allowing me to have to much fun! I'll end with this...a recent picture of my dearest Isabella Faith.
