Updates

I have not forsaken you...

It was Spring Break this week and Trey's pre-school was out. SO, let's just suffice it to say I was a bit preoccupied all week. *starts to twitch*

It was actually a really good week and I'll try and blog some of that stuff soon, but I've been hinting at this business post ... and hinting... and hinting... and I'm finally able to post it!

Well, here it is...

I have made some BIG, and I mean BIG, improvements to the portrait collections that I offer. Being in business for a few short months has really taught me a lot and given me some insight into what my customers really want... so I went through and re-vamped the bundles.


(oh and i added the cutest little chubby baby to that picture on the right... he's just the most edible thing... truly.)

Moving on...

The gist is the same (as are the cheesy portrait collection names... please forgive my utter lack of creativity in this regard):

* I don't charge a separate session/sitting fee. I've always created my packages this way... I want my customers to know what you're spending UP FRONT. On everything... prints and all. If you choose to spend more on the back end, yippee! But in this day and age we all live inside some kind of budget and if it helps to know up front, awesome.

* I took out the print-size specifications (1-8x10, etc) b/c I really want YOU to dictate exactly what you want to purchase. If you want to spend it ALL on one huge beautiful, amazing canvas, I am ALL for it! Or if you want to buy 20 5x7's... that is up to YOU. You direct the print purchases, not me :)

But I've added some too... :

* Digital Images. Lots of them. Check out the website!

* I've added a 'Simply Baby' newborn package...! Simple. Easy. Perfect.

* I've added an additional session to the 'Watch Me Grow' Package! Now instead of 3 sessions throughout your child's first year, you get 4!


I've organized the 'Investments' portion of the site:
* Now you can see portrait options for 'Familes, Children, & Couples', 'Babies', and 'Seniors'. It makes it MUCHO easier to weed through.

So please, head on over to the website and check things out!

And because we MUST post fun pictures always... here ya go!



More soon!

And if you're local, stay tuned... I'll be at a BIG local event with some FANTASTIC discounts just in time for Mother's Day!!!

Be good,
~ K

Cape Charles

This past weekend was GORGEOUS. The kind of gorgeous day that just draws you outside even if you have a gagillion things to do inside. Saturday Trey's tee-ball game was canceled so we decided to drive over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and see part of the Eastern Shore of VA. Incidentally, the bridge is considered one of the 7 Engineering Marvels of the world... did you know that? I didn't...

The Eastern Shore is a, roughly, 70 mile long peninsula that juts into the Chesapeake Bay and connects to southern Maryland at the top. It took us around an hour to get there from our house in Hampton. We stopped at the first little city on the shore, Cape Charles. Eventually we want to make our way up the peninsula to Chincoteague and Tangier Island, but those trips will probably have to be a bit less spontaneous. :)

Anyway, it's not prime tourist season yet so the little town was quiet, sleepy almost. It's one of those places you can see yourself living when your 80... your grandkids and great-grandkids coming to visit... and throwing their stuff down in the living room, yelling "HEY GRAN!" then running down to the beach. And you wouldn't worry. Because this town has that kind of feel...

After lunch at a cute little artsy cafe, we walked across the street to some old train graveyard place? I'm not really sure what it was, but it was a photographer's flippin' DREAM!



We walked around the town a bit more and ended up down on the beach... ahh the beach. My family just loves the beach...





DJ managed to wrangle the camera from me so I appear in a few shots. Ack. I DESPISE being in front of the camera...



But I remedied that right quick... LOL...

And then Trey got gutsy and started sticking his head in the water... he's a crazy kid.



All in all, it was a great little trip!

Any photography clients want to drive over an hour to your location?! Because this would be PERFECT!!! :)

Oh and I've still got some business stuff to post! Stay tuned :)
