New Pricing!

September 24, 2008

Well ladies and gentlemen, it is that time again. My pricing will be having a complete overhaul shortly. I am changing my packages around to better benefit you! Soo be on the look out within the next week of my website and pricing having some major changes. Also be on the look out for a fun and exciting new announcement!


I had an amazing and fun TTD session with Shannon! We headed over to the University to get some amazing shots. If I thought this bride was fun even before her wedding with all the stress and everything, you can only imagine how much fun we had after her wedding when she wasn’t under a ton of stress!!! It was a blast!!

The Holiday Season

September 20, 2008

WOw I can’t believe that the holiday season is fast approaching! I am looking forward to this Christmas so much this year! Rory will almost be 3 and this may just be the first christmas she will remember! I can’t wait to see how excited she gets. They are already putting up Christmas stuff at Target and she got super excited over some penguins that light up! SOOOO CUTE!!! Logan doesn’t talk like Rory but his eyes get really HUGE when he sees those lights! I can’t wait to drive down the streets and see all the houses lit up :)

Well with the holiday season fast approaching this also means that my available times for weddings and other sessions are filling up fast! If you are getting married this November/December than now is the time to book your wedding! I only have a handful of days available so make sure to get in contact soon to ensure that your wedding date is available :)

Also a quick reminder for those who want to get Christmas cards done. It is best to do your holiday session between late September and early November, this is so we can make sure your pictures are edited and your cards are ready to be in the mail by early December. Due to the business of Holiday weddings, I am only accepting a limited number of Holiday Sessions. So if you are interested in having one done, the sooner you book your date the better!

What exactly IS editing????

September 11, 2008

This is a question I’ve gotten a lot from people. It is hard for me to explain how much nicer an edited image looks versus a non edited image. I made a post a while back about the importance of editing, but it is so far in the archives I figured I’d just post one again :)

Editing consists of many things. Editing is basically the work that happens after taking the picture, you know the behind the scenes stuff. Unedited pictures are fine, but editing just adds to the beauty of an image. Editing consists of cropping and adjusting the contrast, lighting, converting to black and white, doing selective coloring, taking out any blemishes as well as changing the tone of an image, and the occasional fixing of an unsightly bulge (even the skinniest people can turn funny and get something that looks a bit off, well I’ll fix that when I can). While a non edited picture looks perfectly fine, once you see the edited version you can’t believe the difference! (You will never be able to look at the original the same again) :p

When you order a custom album you get all of the images that are placed in the album fully edited. Editing can be very time consuming which is one of the factors as to why the custom albums are more expensive.

Here is just one example of an edited picture versus non edited
