2013 Holiday Card Mini Sessions

Posted by admin on October 24, 2013

They’re back!! Holiday Card Mini Sessions. I did this a few years back, and I’ve had old clients asking me to bring them back. It has never work out because I’ve always been fully booked this time of year. Lets face it, Mini Sessions are a steal, and why would I do them if I had full sessions booked?

You may have noticed my long absence on the blog. Well, it’s because I was in GREECE!! Not the entire time, but for a couple of weeks leading up to it, I was very busy getting things ready and finishing up clients with open sessions. The phone would ring, I’d get an email, and it seemed like over and over I was turning clients down because I wasn’t going to be around. My husband and I absolutely loved Greece. We had a fabulous time visiting ancient ruins, sitting on black sand beaches, hiking and EATING! The Greeks know how to eat. Despite the fact that we have two small children, we can now say we have learned how to linger over a meal. A three hour linger!

Well, we’re back now, and Greece put me in such a generous mood, I’ve decided to bring back the Holiday Card Mini Sessions. I want to be able to service all my clients because I hate letting people down. It’s always good to give back to your community, and I am feeling extremely blessed, so take advantage!

So, it is time to starting thinking about what you are going to send out for Holiday cards! You’re probably thinking, “Wasn’t there one good snap shot of all of us on vacation this year? Or at Susie’s wedding? I hope the we didn’t look too disheveled and the kids were all smiling. I need to try and find that photo soon.


Listen to what you are saying! Your family and friends get an up to date photo of you once a year (unless you are more the hit and miss type with these things) and you want to send a snapshot? And you want to go to Sam’s Club or get online at Shutterfly to buy the 50 cent 4×8 photo cards?

You can pull together a much better alternative right here. Get professional photos AND professional cards. Double sided 5×7 cards printed on a lightly shimmering PEARL cardstock that doubles as a gift because the back has a large photo with no text that your family and friends can slip into a frame!

Be caught looking your personal best this Holiday Season!

Feast of Lanterns

Posted by admin on August 27, 2013

My better half is away for work this week, so between holding down the fort on my own and trying to prep for our Labor Day weekend plans, this may be my only post this week. The old Jessica would have gotten hung up over not sticking to my 5 days/week rule, but I’ve decided I want to enjoy blogging. Seeing things as a chore takes the fun right out of things! It’s funny how our attitude effects everything in (or not in) our lives.

We have lived downtown 9 years and have never made it to the Feast of Lanterns. I saw pictures of it last year on FB and thought, “wow- what a great photo opportunity!!” We had too many things going on last weekend, so we weren’t able to get to the Feast of Lanterns this year either. By 10:30 p.m., I was just pulling my daughter’s birthday cake out of the oven for her 12 noon party the next day. Having just realized I’d have to run to the store for powdered sugar to be able to make the icing to frost it AND feeling dizzy and tired from the sinus pressure I’d been having, my attitude was such that I was just about to throw in the towel and go to bed!

But, I said to myself, “Forget what time it is. You know what you need and WANT to do!” So, I grabbed my camera and purse and flew out the door. My first stop was the Feast of Lanterns. My some saving grace, I found a close parking spot. I walked around for 20 minutes enjoying the music, the balmy night, and all the twinkling lights. A complete stranger even invited me to sit on their blanket for awhile! That’s when I saw the best perspective for my shots. Lying on my back in the grass, pointing my camera straight up. I wasn’t there long, but my head cleared up. I got my mojo back, and I got some great shots! Then I ran to the store for powdered sugar, came home, finished the cake, sewed a skirt, wrapped presents, and was in bed by 1 a.m. Much too late for me, but I was happy and ready for my first baby to turn 8 :)
