Holy Moly

It has been an INSANE last month! I have worked every single day except for today (which was rained out) and another day that I took off this month. I have to say that I am truly grateful for all of it, as it has been an absolute BLAST capturing the fall foliage in our stunning South Jersey backyard!!!  Oh and I’m very exhausted, but as I like to say… “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”

This just cracks me up! Taken in Blackwood!

A few new things and changes! We are reevaluating our pricing list for next year. We will be attending a few workshops within the next few weeks and feel our work is worth a bit of an increase!  Sorry, guys! It is a business after all!  I know bah humbug, right?

A second thing is that I’ve been enjoying capturing families and couples more and more! Practically every single day I am out and about capturing memories for families and the kids seem to have a blast by the end of the session! This means a lot!

I’m still sending out my thank you cards, but a little bit behind as well as a little behind on the editing, but I am working hard! Trust me!

Gah! I just love this photograph!

I’ve also hired an assistant to come out on my shoots since I’ve been so busy! I really have to say that it has totally been worth it, having that extra set of hands. Plus, it’s great security. I can leave my gear bag with my assistant, my assistant can help me get folks in order with the shoot… and also, it’s a big ice breaker… As my assistant is my mom!  Yep, good ol’ mom. I do pay her to be with me by my side, but her assistance has helped me two-fold and I am forever grateful for that!

Also, another good news. We will be having our Christmas mini sessions on November 28th. There is already a wait list for this, so it will go out fast. I’m receiving emails daily. This will be it for the rest of the year as I need a little break and want to study up, take workshops and rest up for what I have planned to do next year!

Second, I was recently among my peers among some of the best photographers in the world. I am a bit flabbergasted and shocked to be honest with you, but my peers really seem to love the little girl with the leaves.  This has been a request with every photo session since that day. It’s actually a lot of fun to do! I see throwing snowflakes in the near future!  Here’s the link if you wanted to check it out for yourself!

Here’s the “FAMOUS IMAGE” South Jersey!

I have two maternity sessions lined up for this week and weekend and it’s my favorite thing to capture so I’m very excited about that.  All in all it’s been a great year and I feel really blessed to wake up every single day and do something I love to do. That is something special right there!

Well… I guess I’ll see you around South Jersey! I’m heading off to go edit! I have been traveling from Atlantic County to Burlington County and everything in between lately. However, I wouldn’t change it for the world!

Happy Shooting, my friends!
