I Am Sorry!!

Sorry that I haven't put anything new here for a while but I have been working on a project, my very first photo book! I decided to do a bookstore quality book that I could use to market my business! It will be a collection of some of my favorite photographs that I have taken in the last year! Some are personal and some are clients while others are cars and nature so it will be a true representation of my work and my passion! The title is "Life Looks Better Through The Lens" and will be available for purchase in the near future, I promise I will let you know when and where!

So I have been busy working on the layout and pulling all my favorite photos from the achieves to put them in the book! I am also working and the journaling that will accompany the photos!! The front cover will be the little diva and the back cover will be the moody teen because two of my all time favorite photos are of them (not just because they are my kids)! Yup, the photo above is the cover shot! Excitement all the way I tell you!

Upcoming shoots include some senior photos, a baby dedication and a wedding re dedication ceremony! So I will have some new things to share by next week!

Prom 2009

Wow, what an exhausting day yesterday was! A car shoot and a prom shoot all in one day makes for a very tired but happy photographer! I will post the car photos later because I thought the prom photos turned out great! This is my son with his TWO dates! The young lady in the balck and white dress has a boyfriend but he could not make it so my son had two dates! It made for some fun photos but I am ready for a break! Ha! For more of this shoot click here!

Busy Weekend with No Sleep!

Wedding season is in full swing and the bookings are coming in left and right not to mention engagement and event sessions! I am sooooo happy to be busy but wondering when I will have time to sleep let alone do anything else! Ha!

This weekend is very packed starting at 9 AM tomorrow with a car and cycle show that I will be photographing! I must also pick up the wrist corsage for my son's date for prom and then help him get ready. After the two couples have arrived we will be doing a location shoot with them for prom pics! Did you expect anything less from a photographer?? Ha Ha! One girls date may not be able to come so my son may have two dates and he is only a sophomore! I think that is sooo funny!

Anyway, Sunday I will be singing at Peterson Park here in Mattoon from 3-5 pm. If you are in the area please stop by for some great music from lots of great artists! I will be posting lots of pictures of all these events as soon as I can so come on back to see my work!
