I set a goal last fall. I wanted to book 20 weddings for 2008. By early Feb, that goal was met. I’m about half way through those 20 weddings at this point, and I’ve realized…

I would rather shoot 10-12 weddings and be able to devote more time and creativity to each one of those, than shoot 20 and be rushed, drained, and lose any zeal or creativity in all of the madness. My logic here is that less is actually more… more customer service, more top notch photographs, and more satisfaction- coming away from each wedding knowing that I devoted myself fully to the job. Oh, let’s not forget more joy! Because, afterall, Wedding photography is super fun. You get to meet so many people, experience all the emotion and beauty of celebrating the love of two people. Sometimes I laugh, I cry, and I remember every couple that I work with, because they are all special.

So, I said all that to say…
I have decided to limit my wedding bookings for the 2009 Season. I am only going to book 10-12 clients. That way I can serve them better, and devote more time to my studio work.

Ahhhh. I feel better now, and I am super excited about the rest of my 2008 Weddings, especially the ones coming up in October~ I love fall weddings. But I am also looking forward to slowing things down a bit next year.

What darlings! Their Grandma, Robin, and I have been conversing through email for a few months about me photographing her two precious grandsons, Kameron and Jonah. The big photo shoot finally went down this week and what an awesome time I had creating these fun and colorful portraits for Robin and the whole family. I also found a new favorite distressed wall!

“Brother’s Keeper”

I just want to say CONGRATS to my good friend Jeremy Robertson and his wife Nichole. Their beautiful baby boy, Lucas Zander Robertson, was born on June 25th! I did Jeremy’s engagement pictures, Wedding pictures, and now am looking forward to the opportunity of taking portraits of Lucas for him and Nichole.

I stopped in to see the couple on sat. July 5th and snapped a few pictures of the cute little guy :)

Let’s see who keeps up with the blog…

Just got finished creating a Hard Cover album last night for Shawn & Ashleigh and thought I’d share a few of my favorite pages. They chose a Cream Art Cloth cover for this 40 page album, good pick!

These lovebirds are my Sept. 20th Wedding clients and some of the sweetest people you could ever meet, for real. We met up in Marietta on Sat. July 5th for their Engagement session, and I honestly can’t think of two more awesome folks to spend time with after I returned from my vacation!
