Referral Rewards are Here!

Word of mouth has been one of the best ways for me to gain new customers. To extend my appreciation, I am now offering referral rewards to my clients who help me locate new faces. With each paid booking I receive from your referral you will be given a $25 credit to use on prints from a past session (if still available) or a future session. Furthermore....Refer 4 paid bookings within one year and I will throw in a FREE mini-session for you on TOP of the free prints you have already earned. How is that for appreciation??

To earn the referral reward, simply have your friend mention your name upon booking. Once I have been paid for the session, you will be notified of your credit. Credits are valid for up to 60 days from issue date, have no cash value and are not valid with any other offers.

Spread the word... and earn your referral dollars today!

Sneak Peek Family "R"

I had the pleasure of working with the ladies of family "R" on Thursday afternoon. It was a special treat because I actually have known Jennifer (Mom) since I was 5 years old and had not seen her in about 14 years! Time flies- geez!! It was an honor to welcome the newest addition to her family with a fun photo shoot. AND, I really appreciate that she drove in from Ohio with a two year old and few week old newborn just to work with me. :)

She plans on SURPRISING her husband with pictures of them for the upcoming holidays.... so if you know him.. SHHHH!!!! Jennifer appreciates artistic images- mainly in black and white.
I brought out some beads, feathers, boxes, starfish... and more to get the creative juices flowing on our shoot! LOL. Check out some of the images below:
*Denise Synder's winning image was my inspiration for photo number one. I just loved it and had to do something similiar with these special people.

Enjoy your sneak peak, Jennifer! You are all just GORGEOUS!!! It was so nice to see you again and meet some of your fabulous family members. I have been working with quite a bit of dedication on your images and have nearly a dozen more black and whites to share with you. Your complete slideshow will be ready for viewing in just a couple more days!
