Professional Photographer Magazine

Wow! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks. So many exciting things happening and my head is spinning. Last week I returned from Phoenix and Imaging USA, where I was so honored to receive three national awards, two for my photography and one for business. I think I was most excited to receive the AN-NE Award for a marketing campaign I created for my business. I have never been recognized for my business practices before and although I have managed my business for nearly 12 years now, I am continually working to improve my marketing and business practices. So, winning this award was really thrilling for me! Moreover, the award lead to a news feature in the January issue of Professional Photographer Magazine. Exciting!! Thank you PPA !!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Well, it's a little late . . . but here is our Christmas card. I have been so busy: first finishing everyone's portraits for Christmas and then editing images and proofing 16 hours a day. 5,000 images and 1,0000 previews later and . . . . I am now in the airport on my way to Las Vegas for the SPA (senior portrait artists) convention. Then, I am off to Phoenix and Imaging USA where I will be receiving the AN-NE award. Also, I will be exhibiting in the photoDUDS booth. I'm still kinda addled but hopefully will calm down in a bout an hour or so. . . I hope all of my necessities made it into my suitcase. . . if so it would be the first time EVER!! I'm out . . . the plane is here.
