Pre-Registration ends today!

I just wanted to remind everyone that Pre-Registration at the discount price will be ending tonight at midnight! Don't will go back to the regular price of $249 tomorrow. I do want to let you know that payment is NOT due at the time of registration. We will send you a paypal invoice, which is due before the day of the workshop. This is a great Christmas opportunity...for yourself, for a wife or husband, for a friend...anybody with a camera and a desire to jump into the field of photography. Only a few more spaces are available! Register today!

And, here is the itinerary for our day! We will spend the day in the cozy atmosphere of the Grand, drinking hot chocolate, learning more about photography, listening to Christmas music....okay just kidding about the Christmas music. Kind of. :)

I also want to let you know that at the workshop I will be giving participants copies of all my documents (contracts, copyright releases, wedding worksheets, etc) as well as fully editable photoshop files of some of my favorite wedding, baby and senior announcements. I am also compiling lists of my favorite online resources and photo locations... you will get it all. AND a special gift that I can't disclose... :)

Can't wait!

...I've got my love to keep me warm...

Any other self-respecting, smart photographer would have cancelled last Saturday...but nope, not me.

And I am so glad!

Super kudos go to Clay and Clarissa, who made it through a whole session in the freezing blizzard-like conditions...and they didn't even cuss at me. not once. :)

So while I was editing these pics I had the words to this song in my head...

The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
I've got my love to keep me warm.
I can't remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form!
What do I care if icicles form?
I've got my love to keep me warm.

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
I've got my love to keep me warm.

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
I've got my love, I've got my love,
I've got my love to keep me warm.

So Grand!

So here's the big workshop venue announcement, are you ready?

Here it is...................................................we are going to be spending the day at the beautiful Grand Suites!

If you've never heard of it, that's because it is a brand new luxury vacation loft above 25th street. I toured it today, it is GORGEOUS. It is a refurbished 1800s building with all the original exposed brick and gorgeous updates. We'll be in the room overlooking the 25th street which will be all decked out in lights for the holidays. Here are some pictures that might give you an idea of just how amazing this is going to be!

So we're going to spend the day sipping hot chocolate and learning about photography!
Can you imagine anything more wonderful? Cuz I can't!

Hope you all can come! There is still some time to pre-register at the discounted price! Don't miss it, we'd love to have you with us! Keep coming back for more updates, we'll be announcing the itinerary very soon!

Workshop Reminder!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to remind you that Pre-Registration ends on Saturday! Don't miss out on the 20% discount! Register here now!

Also, I am going to announce our AMAZING venue tomorrow! (Seriously I'm so excited that I found this place and that it was available! It is going to be soooo cozy and sweet!)

Here is a quick teaser for you though, just to get you interested (as if you weren't already!)

The McGregor Family {Christmas Card Sessions 2009}

Kierstyn is one of my best friends and also one of my hottest brides ever! Its been a year since I did her wedding, so I was so excited to get her in front of the lens again! (Isn't her stepson a doll? those blue eyes...) Check out these adorable family pics of her and her sweet in-laws! Such pretty leaves, who knew in less than a week those same leaves would be covered in snow? Glad we got them done when we did!

Wendy and Luke {Christmas Card Sessions 2009}

My absolute favorite, so sweet and happy! This is what motherhood feels like--joy!

Check out this adorable mother-and-son! Wendy is sooo gorgeous and Luke such a stud! I loved photographing them...the only snag we had was when Wendy gave me her keys to keep in my pocket during the shoot...and then when I went to give them back to her at the end they were gone. Gone gone. It wasn't just a regular key either, it was one of the expensive electronic ones. And the park, of course, was covered in leaves! I was so worried, but somehow we lucked out and found them after backtracking a bit. Whew! Other than that, so fun!
