I had my portfolio review and got some exciting news!

So, today I woke up super early (before 5 a.m!) after a LONG night of partying and had an unbelievable day! I took classes today on marketing, lighting and learned all about a very cool “boutique-y” studio. I walked around the expo all afternoon – it’s SO big and packed with so much information that I was in camera heaven! So nuts!! But it was so exciting, too! There’s so much stuff that’s being brought to market that I just can’t wait to get a hold of it all. And I can’t wait to be able to share it with all of you!

So, in 2008, I’m going to be offering a bunch of new things like great spiral bound “brag” books, and leather bound wallet sized “brag” books, too! You’re just going to have to wait to see everything! Unbelievable stuff! So exciting!

Speaking of exciting, when I had my porfolio review, I got a pretty good one (which always makes me happy!) and she strongly suggested that I enter an image into the Black-and-White category. It’s an image of Ewan and it’s one of my most favorites! So, that’s my new news! I’ll be submitting it to another conference competition in March, too. I’ll let you know how I fare!

So, now I’m off to bed so I can get up and start learning more all over again! This has been an amazing trip so far!!!

Happy New Year and greetings from Tampa!

I’m writing this from my hotel room in Tampa, Florida. I’m at the Professional Photographers Association Conference and it’s so amazing! Today, I took two classes on Senior photography. This is something that I”ve been interested in doing for a while, but haven’t had the information to do so. Well, today I got a ton of good information on doing Senior photography. I’m so excited to start doing this type of photography. I have a ton of great ideas on posing, getting great images and an amazing referral program, too! So, if you know anyone who’s going to be a senior, graduating in 2009, please send them my way! I’m looking for models who are very active in school activities – athletics, band, cheerleading, poms, etc…you know who’s active in many different facets of school life. I’m offering a free session and like I said, an amazing referral program – but you’ll have to send me an email or give me a call to find out more about it!

This is going to be an amazing year for Frameable Faces! What an amazing opportunity to get in on the growth! I’ll be blogging about what’s been going on day by day as the week goes on! Check back tomorrow to see what happened on Sunday, January 6!

Aidan – One of the “Beautiful” Babes from the contest




So yesterday, I had the awesome pleasure of meeting Aidan. He’s one of the winners from the contest. Ok, I thought he was really cute from the image that his mom sent in, but I was amazed at how much cuter he is than that! What a monstrous cutie! And he was so sweet, to boot! Smart as a whip – it’s really hard to remember how old he is. He seems so much older!
We had a great shoot. He had me laughing and was just a joy to be around. He gave me a great big hug when we were all done, too. What a super sweet little man!!! As a side note, his mom was one of the nicest people I’ve worked with, too! So, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as the saying goes!!
Anyways, here are some sneak peaks at Aidan’s photo session. It’s going to be really hard to choose which ones to order!

The C family and updates on Baby, You’re Beautiful



I had the awesome pleasure of photographing an absolutely beautiful family this weekend – Meet the C family! There were a total of 6 families and I has such a blast with all of them! There were a ton of kids and they were all so well behaved and sweet! I wish I could post all of the images here, but it’d be incredibly difficult to post 70+ images! So you’ll just have to deal with these!
Well, after I finished up the family shoot, I got a great surprise! They asked me if I’d be able to come back and shoot S and S’s wedding the next day! What a great honor! I’ll post some of those pictures in a bit, but I just wanted to say I had a great weekend with the family and I’d love to do it again when everyone’s together next time, too! Thanks so much for including me in your day!
The Baby You’re Beautiful contest is in full swing! Remember to get your images in by next Sunday. And don’t forget to pass along the information about the contest to everyone you know with cute kids! I’m loving all the entries so far. It’s going to be a hard decision for you guys!
I’ll post some images of the wedding soon. Wait til you see this great couple!
