Well, it seems my blog has been quite neglected, as it usually is after a busy fall before the holidays.  I have been very blessed to meet some amazing new families this year, and to see so many come back for their annual portraits!  I enjoy this very much and after about a week off from working, it seems I’m ready to jump right back in and get back to work.  Hopefully 2011 will bring some more of what I saw in 2010… meeting new little people, and experiencing the beginnings of families forming, seeing children (and families) grow, and capturing that moment in time to help you create the family portrait you have been dreaming of.

I’ll be posting some recent work from Oct, Nov, and December 2010 to catch up on what I’ve been up to.   The new studio has been WONDERFUL!  I just love having a meeting place for you to come and see samples of products, my work, and the studio space for the winter months and the ability to capture the childhood milestones has been great so far!    I couldn’t have done it without you so thank YOU for your business and support!

And a huge thank you for my family, and especially my husband Dave, who is definitely my partner in this business.  He’s the other half doing all the behind the scenes work, and keeping my computer working smoothly.  He’s been known to stay up all night long  to fix a computer problem, or update my computer to Win7, or whatever happens along the way.  He also put in long hours helping me paint, hang hardware, and assemble furniture in my studio.

I rarely post pictures of my own family-  we were able to squeeze this image out in the nick of time to create my own holiday cards this year…. and I LOVE how it turned out.  This is in the studio, taken with the camera’s timer.   A doggy treat sat on the lens – which made everyone look and smile!  Not an easy feat! Haha.
