Exciting News!
Tuesday, July 22, 2008 | business           

I was going to wait to share this news until I had images to post - but I'm just too excited to wait!

At the exact time I was sitting in my home office thinking that I HAD to get a bigger workspace, our local and international photographer, Susan Stripling, contacted me with a too-good-to-be-true opportunity.  Over the last couple of years Susan's blood, sweat and tears (well maybe not blood) went into the construction and design of an amazing 5500 sq ft studio here in downtown Tallahassee.  The time has come for her to move the home base of her business to NY.  While Tallahassee will greatly miss her, I can't be more excited about this opportunity.

On August 1st we're packing up the tiny office and moving into the new studio!

So what does this mean for my out of town wedding clients?  Not much except when you call or email me I will be communicating from a really cool location.  What this does mean is that I will be adding a whole new dimension to my business.  While I will continue to shoot location portraits, I will now offer studio sessions as well.  When I mention the words "studio" and "portrait" most people think backdrops, sears and "say cheese" but it's everything but those things!  The studio was designed to let in natural light throughout the entire day and made up of vaulted ceilings, white walls and enormous windows - every inch of it screams creativity!  My focus will be the same in the studio as it is in my client's homes - focusing on the emotions and personalities of the little ones!  

More updates and images coming soon.  Stay tuned...

100,000 miles and counting
Thursday, May 15, 2008 | business           

By tomorrow night at midnight my car will hit 100,000 miles.  I love my job but I had no idea that shooting and editing would come second to driving!  

I'll be out of the office starting this afternoon and won't be back to work until tuesday.  What I'm doing tomorrow is more exciting to me than being featured in the country's top bridal magazine....  I'm going home to speak to my old middle school's photography class!!  When Kim, the middle school photography teacher, asked me I couldn't have been more excited!  Hopefully I'll have pictures to post of my attempt at teaching.

Then on friday I'm off to South Carolina to shoot a wedding.  I'm dragging my good friend Beth along to keep me company.  Stay tuned...

If you need to reach me in the meantime please don't hesitate to call.  Otherwise I will return all emails when I return.

I'm sitting in the Las Vegas airport trying to convince myself that collapsing on the floor and falling into a deep sleep will only cause me to miss my plane.  I didn't know it was possible to have so much fun on such little sleep.  But it's now time to get back to normal life and say good-bye to Vegas and all the fun.  

It was such an incredible pleasure to meet so many amazing photographers.  I'm looking forward to staying in touch with you all and meeting up again very soon!  

I'll be "out of the office" for the next couple of days.  Most likely I'll be sleeping but will return phone calls and emails as soon as I catch up on my much needed sleep!  

Many many pictures to post very soon....
