As you can see we are still messing with my blog…the hosting company has restored posts up to 9.10.09, but now the ones made since then are gone. I am technically on vacation, but have been sneaking away to try to figure this out. If you missed the crawdad post today…no worries I’ll post it again to gross you. I am not going to attempt to repost this week…for one I am on vacation, secondly I don’t have my computer! I will work on reposting it all next week. One condition…if you commented on the crawdad post, you’ll have to do it again so my hubby can read it (and I can read them). I hate that I lost all your comments over the past week, since I’ve been gone I didn’t get to read them all…I really do enjoy reading them. I think the missing posts are: the Lego blog, Tummy time, crawdad, my daughter’s weight gain, and one more that I can think of right now…

Thanks for hanging in there with me on this…I’m off to enjoy a dock on the lake instead of crying over all this. You have no idea…back next week.

  • heidi - your ruler back splash was kind of this week. i think it was on monday.


So here is the post I know many of you have been waiting for….new SnapShop dates. I am only announcing two new dates at this time. There are only 10 slots available for each one and it is a first to email me ( gets the slots. Please email me your first choice date, but if that date is booked and you are open to another date please indicate that in your email…drumroll please….the dates are:

September 26th BOOKED

October 24th BOOKED

Plan on the SnapShops lasting all day, more information on registration and when payment of $199.00 is due will be mailed to those who email me to reserve the spots. For more detailed information on SnapShops look under the “info” tab for the SnapShop page or visit my website.

I do plan on doing several in the spring. Since part of the SnapShop includes an outdoor mini-shoot, there will not be any during the winter months. I am considering doing a SnapShop on a Friday or a weekday. If you would be interested in that leave me a comment or send an email.

  • Stacey Zahn - I would be interested in a weekday class! Please let me know if anything opens up this fall!

Funny that just yesterday I posted about how the session side of my photography business is on hold and then today I post a session. Figures it would work that way. I have been anxiously awaiting when I could post this session. We did it in May, but had to wait until after the wedding to post some. Christi was my first bride to opt for a downtown setting…we did some at a park too. It was so much fun – ideal setting, great lighting, a fun & gorgeous bride. Almost makes me want to start booking weddings again…almost, but not quite:)

Congratulations Christi (& Shane)!

Christi wanted a bit of a vintage look to the post processing – did I say how great she was! This first one she ordered a large gallery wrap canvas of. It was stunning.


What you don’t see in the picture above is the strange man sitting on stairs behind me making comments about how gorgeous Christi was…we left that spot pretty quickly. Christi, I bet you won’t forget that part of the session:)
