A couple reminders...

I will be out of the office from August 1-10th to attend a wedding out of state. I will have access to phone and email, however, so feel free to contact me if you need to! All emails and phone calls will be returned within 24 hours.

August is nearly booked completely, but there are a couple weekday spots still available if you would like to get your photos taken before school starts. Contact us ASAP to get scheduled!

We are now actively booking September, and it's not to early to think about your holiday photos. The sooner you book, the better! All holiday sessions must take place BEFORE December 1 to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.

If you have already had a session this year and would like to order your holiday cards, remember our one-time, never before done special promotion... YOUR THIRD SET OF HOLIDAY CARDS IS FREE! (All appointments that take place before September 14 are eligible). To take advantage of this limited offer, orders must be placed by September 30, 2008.

Olive and Bean Boutique

A new shop has opened up in town, and I love it. It's called "Olive and Bean" and it's located in the Village at Centennial Springs. Catering to the client that desires stylish, healthy, and innovative products for home, bath, and baby, I knew it was a place I was going to love. I watched as the store transformed from an empty building to a beautiful environment that welcomes children and inspires moms.

(click on the picture above to visit the website!)

Each time I go in there, I find something I just love - and I know you will, too. It's the perfect place to find a unique baby gift, toy, or even bath and body product for yourself. I am especially fond of the lavender bath tea - it comes with a cool infuser that you can just drop in your bath and steep as the bath fills up! Pure heaven, I tell ya! And check out the wall near the back as you walk in for some great samples of the gallery-wrapped canvas prints I offer, too :)

The best part has been getting to know the owners of this family-run operation. They are really great people, helpful and friendly, and always wearing a smile on their faces. We did a little photo shoot the other day and I just love the captures we got.

Congratulations on your grand opening! Your full gallery will be online very soon!

On the Tuscan shore

Karen and her family were taking a vacation at the Ritz-Carlton in Lake Las Vegas... so she contacted me to do a few family photos while they were staying there. Of course, I was thrilled... the grounds were beautiful. Turns out, the family's not so bad either.

Loved getting to know the three sisters... being one of three sisters myself, I just love that family dynamic.
The day on the shore was perfect... just slightly overcast (and a little humid!), with beautiful lighting for photos... and isn't that background gorgeous??

It was lovely to get to know your family, Karen! Your private gallery will be online later tonight. Until then, enjoy this little preview!

Stephanie in waiting...

I loved the maternity session I got to do at Stephanie's house. Loads of gorgeous natural light coming in every window, and beautiful models to boot! They make my job too easy.
Stephanie is expecting her first child. Can you guess what her name will be?
I loved the way the two of them interacted. Such love and adoration - little Sophia is going to be one lucky little girl with these two as parents!

Thanks, Stephanie, for a wonderful time! Your gallery will be up this week!

2009 Senior - Holly

Holly wanted to do a photoshoot on the strip, so we started at the Paris hotel for some fun fashion shots...
Then over to Planet Hollywood...
And finally, to the Conservatory at the Bellagio!
At the very end of our session, we found a fountain outside and jumped in for a couple of fun shots before security caught us!
I had such a great time with you, Holly! You are a natural in front of the camera! Your whole gallery will be up this weekend!

She is my newest Class of 2009 Model! A senior at Cimarron-Memorial High School, she is a swimmer and a diver. I can't wait to get some action shots of her swimming!

If you see Brinkley around, be sure to ask her for one of her Rep Cards - they are worth 16 FREE WALLETS from your paid session!
