I want to start off by thanking each and every one of you reading this.
Thank you to those that have booked me in the past. It's because of you that my business blossomed the way that it did, and it kept me smiling each and every day. Thank you to those that followed my fan page and encouraged me to continue, or praised my work when I posted it. It's because of you I ignored the negativity. Thank you to those that reached out to me on my dark days to lift me up when I needed it most. Thank you, thank you. I can't say it enough.
This is where this post gets sad. Grab a box of tissues. ;)
After having a rather in-depth conversation with my husband, I've decided to stop booking clients for the time being. I'm not doing this because business is bad, or because of a bad experience. I'm doing this for me, and for my family. I've missed quite a bit of bonding moments with my son and my husband. I feel that at this time I need to focus more of my energy on my personal life and raising my son the way I feel should be done.
Don't fret, I'll be back better than ever when I'm ready. Please continue to follow my facebook page, as I will continue to post photos there such as photos of my family, and/or any photos I choose to do of others. If I decide to take on any clients or any photo projects this will be on my terms, and will be very few and far in between. These sessions will be free and for personal growth.
For past clients:
You're probably reading this and wondering what's going to happen next? Well, if you've not made your orders, you have until the end of September to get any other images you want from me. Due to the short notice, I'm offering HIGH RES digitals as I won't be putting in any more orders after this point. If you would like this pricing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to get them.
Okay, I'm done! See, it wasn't that bad, right? Haha, love you guys! <3
If you're still wanting to trade product for photos, I'm still willing to help you. If we're in the process of trading services, this post will not effect you.

A few weeks ago I found out about The Pink Dandelion via the B. Retreat I signed up to attend this weekend. This lovely lady is one of the sponsors for this retreat. I browsed her shop and instantly fell in love. I feel like her work blends perfectly with what I want to offer. I paired her awesome USB cases with my custom flash drives via Pexagon.
Speaking of Pexagon, I adore all of their products as well. They offer many different styles of USBs, but I like the simplicity of the swivel style. I got my order rather quickly, and how cute is my logo on there? I'll be ordering from them again soon. Stop by and browse through their shop! ;)

I met this mom through a local mom group, and I've learned so much about her and her family. She's a fitness instructor with Stroller Strides in the Citrus Park area. I wanted to share these photos AFTER she received her package, but I just can't wait any longer. I just have to share some of my favorites!
If you love these, be sure to contact me ASAP to book a maternity mini session with me on August 10th. More details can be given via email@example.com

It's been three months since I mad a blog post. I guess life just got in the way. Last night, I spent several hours on the beach with Jen Collazo of Shooting for Keeps Photoghaphy. I brought my family, and she brought hers with an additional client to have fun with. We used my boat prop, and spent the evening snapping pictures, and having fun. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
P.S. a little candy goes a long way. ;)

Jennifer: 25 weeks pregnant/
I felt so honored to photograph this mother, especially after she rushed to get to our session when experiencing a flat tire. She looked so stunning in her outfit with that growing baby belly. I look forward to seeing her with her newest addition to the family.
Best of luck to you Jenn!

I met this G O R G E O U S couple earlier this month. I must have said "you're so darn cute" a million plus times within that session. I couldn't help myself. I mean, c'mon. Just look at these images. Don't you agree? Mr. Earls was only on leave for four days, and they went from engaged to having their happily ever after in that amount of time. They tied the knot and I couldn't be any happier for them. By far the best couple I think I've ever met thus far.
Best wishes Mr and Mrs!
