Home from surgery.

I'm home from surgery, and everything went great. I'm actually able to walk pretty well, but am taking meds for the pain, and have to rest for a few days. I will be able to fulfill orders starting tomorrow or Thursday. Thank you, everyone, for your e-mails, texts, and well wishes, I really appreciate it. I have to especially thank Diane for watching my boys today, and finishing up my housework. I really don't know what I would have done without you and Angela, you both have been so amazing to us, thank you. :)

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm!

Another WPJA win!

An image from Lula & David's wedding placed 16th in the emotion category of the latest WPJA contest. I loved this image, and was really hoping it would place. The woman in the back is the officiant.

I think this one from Lanisha & Tyler's wedding should have placed, too. Oh, well, I guess I'll have to live with just one winning image. lol

Thanks for being such awesome clients that win me awards! :)

Surgery it is.

Well, after many weeks of physical therapy, the Dr. has decided to do surgery on my knee. The physical therapy definitely helped with my patella tendinitis, but not with my meniscus tear. They would have done surgery before, but the Dr. said my pain was coming from something else (the tendinitis), but once that went away, I could feel the meniscus tear and my physical therapist sent me back to the Dr.

So, the surgery is Tuesday morning, and I really don't know yet how long it will take to recover. They say I'll be able to walk on it that day, but that people don't go back to a desk job for a week or so, or an active job for several weeks. I've been working with knee pain since July, so I'm sure the surgery won't slow me down for long (hopefully).

In the meantime, I'm doing whatever I can to get albums ready, orders sent, and editing finished (oh, and a little house cleaning and xmas shopping done) before then. I will be checking my e-mail, and Spencer will fulfill orders if I cannot. I just won't be doing any shoots for a couple weeks.

Thank you for your patience an support!

Holiday Bunny

Look what I got to play with in the studio today! A couple from waaay back came in for a holiday portrait session, and brought their bunny. He was so sweet! They were ok, too. ;) lol

4 More Days!

Only 4 days left to purchase a Finao Elements mini-album for yourself or a family member in time for the holidays. I recently discovered this album company, and everyone who has seen my sample albums have loooved them. In fact, I currently have six 4x6 and 5x7 Finao Elements albums sitting on my desk waiting to get put together. If you think you'd like to purchase an album of your engagement, wedding, bridal, portrait, or day after session images as a gift, let me know, and I'll send you the pricing information. I do have all of the swatches for the cover materials, as well as sample albums, if you'd like to see them first. If you order them by December 6th, you are guaranteed your order will show up before the holidays.

Studio Update/Out of the Office

The studio is coming along...slowly, but since the flooring was put in, I think it'll go faster now. Here are a few pics I took after my friend, Lisa's, maternity session.

I'm going to be enjoying this Thanksgiving weekend with my family, and will be back in the office, returning calls and e-mails, on Monday.

The client meeting area with a kids corner...

The entrance...

The entrance hallway will be turned into a small art gallery...

With my back to the door...

My back up against the storage closet...

The view from the other end...

Have a safe and happy holiday!
