    Studio App Will Earn You Free Pics!!
    posted on November 13, 2013

    Ok – I am launching the new studio app!!

    You will be able to book appointments, earn free pictures with our picture point punch card, see events and news, view photo galleries, videos and so much more!!

    The most important thing is the Picture Points Punch Card. You will have to bring your phone into the studio to have it “punched” in order for your points to work. It will need to be the same phone – I won’t be able to combine punches from several phones. I will have a page on my website with all the rules soon.

    Download the app and claim your thank you coupon by the end of November! :)

    Studio Update Since We’ve Been Closed
    posted on August 21, 2013

    I am just getting back to the studio from being closed for the fair display and also a much needed vacation my family took to South Dakota …so this is the run down of everything going on in case anyone is wondering about their pictures  :)

    I will be catching up on any editing from sessions I did before the studio closed.

    I will be getting orders placed for anything that was ordered in the last two weeks. I hope to get them in today so they are back by Friday but I am not sure if it will happen or not so plan on the first part of next week for all orders to be delivered to the studio

    Ross County Fair Jr Sales pictures will be uploaded to the proofing site sometime today. I have not gotten thru all of the orders but I hope to do that by tomorrow so I can contact everyone who placed an order. I will either order for you if that is the option you selected or I will provide you with the log in information. These pictures will also come in with any orders I place from the last two weeks so please plan on them being in sometime next week. Remember – if you didn’t pay for them to be shipped to you then you will need to come to the studio to pick them up.

    Finally…all of my sessions I had this weekend. All of the pictures should be uploaded. If you missed my email with your log in information please let me know :) A few of you who have already chosen your favorites will be seeing the finished images soon :) I will email or call you when they are uploaded and ready to order.

    Softball pictures taken at Southeastern will hopefully be in by Friday also. I will let my contact person know as soon as they are in :)

    Thanks so much everyone!! I apologize for being MIA for 2 weeks but now I am back and ready to roll :) I did come back to over 500 emails so if you contacted the studio that way I will be getting in touch soon and I do have a few calls to return. I am getting to everything as fast as I can so please show me a little patience if you can :)

    Hope everyone has a great day!!

    The New Pumpkin Patch!
    posted on July 14, 2013

    We finally have the pumpkin patch planted! Only a photographer would say – I’m planting pumpkins late and I don’t care if the pumpkins bloom in time I just want the leaves – I can add pumpkins later :)

    Dane did all the digging and Kyerstyn helped plant the seeds and cover them up.

    It looks a little pitiful now but soon it won’t :) I started out keeping all the landscape fabric nice and straight and un-walked on and then it started getting so hot that everything just went everywhere and I didn’t care…

    Llama’s – My New Favorite Animal :) | fundraisers
    posted on July 7, 2013

    I had a so much fun taking pictures with the llama’s at Scioto Trails Saturday. The rain held off for the most part. The owners of Spice of Life Llama Farm brought two of their llama’s for people to visit with. I had never worked with llama’s before but I have to say I was quite impressed and I am even more happy to say I didn’t get spit on! :) (anyone who knows me understands that one :) )

    I can’t wait for the Scioto Trails to have their Christmas in July this 20th so I can see the llama’s again :)

    Here are a couple pictures of my new buddies. Please excuse the cell phone pictures – I haven’t downloaded the real ones from my camera yet :)

    A Little Update
    posted on June 1, 2013

    If you sent a message about Chillicothe Dance pictures (or just in general) I promise I will get in touch with you tomorrow between 11 and 3. I was supposed to call a few of you back tonight but some unexpected things came up and thru off my schedule. Will try to get a sneak peak posted of my last session I did this evening…so many rotten cute pictures to choose from – it will be hard to decide what to edit! Those adorable little kids had way more energy than I did I am going to feel this one in the morning I’m sure! Hope everyone has a good night…

    Pricelist Update and Simplification!
    posted on May 7, 2013

    I have come to the conclusion that I try to explain things so perfectly that all I accomplish is confusing EVERYONE (including myself most days!). With that being said I have simplified all of my pricing and the brochures you can download from the website. I have also made a small change in price to my wallets that will go into affect immediately. I hope this makes things a little easier! :) If you want to download the updated price lists please go to the website and under the type of pictures you are looking for will be a link to download the pricing.
