A Day at the Beach

A few weeks ago we ran our Beach Special at the studio. We brought in 17--50 lb bags of play sand (which seemed never-ending when Katherine and I were packing it out of the studio), a pier and lots of shells to create our set. It turned out great and I've started processing the photos. It's so fun to see all of the wonderful images!!! I am posting an image of Sophia Pearson, who is such a cutie and had such a fun time playing in our sand!!

Seniors 2008

It's rapidly approaching . . . . the 2008 senior season.
Yes, it's hard to believe that I will start photographing the graduating class of 2008 in only 8 short days!!! I can hardly fathom it myself!!! This week I will frantically be updating the studio with new props, finishing the 2008 price list and painting some areas of the studio for use as backgrounds. We sent out the letters earlier this week to the 60+ seniors we already have scheduled so far. (If you are planning on scheduling a senior appointment, please be advised that currently our first available opening is sometime in mid-September)

Ryan Adams Concert

I am super-excited!!! Tonight was are going to see Ryan Adams in Morgantown at the Metropolitan Theatre. This will make the third time we've seen him in concert and the previous two were simply awesome!! We heard from a friend who saw him in concert earlier this week that Ryan was unable to play guitar or piano due to a recent skateboarding accident. Bummer!!! Still, it should be a great show. I am posting a photo from the first time we saw Ryan in Washington, D.C. at the 9:30 Club.

Kennedy's Book

Sorry it's been a while since I posted but I have been super busy trying to finish all of my senior orders. Anyway, we just finished a "My First Year" book for Kennedy Shilling and I wanted to share some of the pages with everyone. This book was purchased by John as a Mother's Day gift for his wife Kendra. I am sure he received BIG bonus points for such thoughtfulness!

It was so much fun watching Kennedy grow throughout her first year. She changed so much between each session. She was great fun and has loads of personality!!! She especially enjoyed her cake at her 1 year session, as you can see from the photos.
