Double Congratulations!

You may remember Suzanne and Dustin as our Style Me Pretty couple with their stunning wedding at the Monte Verde Inn.

Well, this wonderful couple just celebrated their two-year anniversary.  But the big story is that they actually have a little something, something else to celebrate very soon.

This little something is actually a pretty big deal.  Suzanne and Dustin spoiled us, yet again, for a little quick photo session as they wind down to the final days of becoming parents .

A huge congratulations to these new parents.  We can not wait to meet the new little man of their house very soon.  It is always so enjoyable to see you both.

Change can be Great!

As many of you know, Barry and I remodeled our studio gallery space a couple of years ago to bring in more of our personality and photography style.  But if you look closely, we have done it again.  More changes.  There are even subtle changes in this image of the new direction taking place.

We’ll come back to this in a moment.  The changes I really want to share have to do with an entirely new expansion.  It couldn’t have come at a better time too.  Now, I know some of you have had the chance to see it for yourself and even during the  construction phase.  But I love showing it off just the same.

We finally did it.  We expanded the studio gallery to our upstairs space.  approximately 900 sq. feet of space.  More than I ever dreamed of having.  The perfect amount to give our studio families all the room they need to relax and prepare for their sessions and reviews.

So, why the addition?  Why not keep everything cozy in the original space?  Why change anything at all if it is working?

This is the cool part… Everything we do is about our customers.  How comfortable we can possibly make your experience from the consultation to the photo session, to the review, and even picking up your orders. 

We had always been comfortable having everyone come into the house and make themselves at home.  But now we are able to really take it to the next level.  We have a full kitchen with a huge variety of refreshments including juices, waters, tea, sodas, etc.  Little ones are able to play on the amazing floor space with a selection of toys and puzzles.  We have a walk in closet for hanging outfits.  Our bathroom has a full size mirror and plenty of space for moving around and changing.  We even have a bedroom fully equipped with everything you need during those precious newborn sessions.  Blankets, hats, diapers, and all those little needed details in between. 

We love change.  Barry and I enjoy challenging our senses and exploring new directions.  It is how we keep growing and improving our photography style and personal customer care.  We have always said our customers are our studio family.  There isn’t a better way than to give you that true feeling of being home.  We love seeing everyone just take a deep breath and relax as soon as they come up stairs.

Oh, and coming back to the first picture of our down stairs studio space… our brides and grooms have their own place to focus on just wedding details.  Now they do have the opportunity to enjoy the experience upstairs as well.  Especially for their engagement sessions.  We have even had a wonderful couple use our kitchen for their session while they prepared a dinner for each other.  That will be another blog coming to you shortly.  It was perfect!

I have to really thank our studio family.  Without your continuing returns and referrals to our little place in the country, we would never have dreamt of taking on this adventure.  My “Boys” (all three of them), are quickly learning that Mom now has her own get away spot.  Forget the Man Cave idea.

Oh Baby, Baby

What can I say about this beautiful little girl?  Meet perfect Miss Emily.  I have a lot of images to share, so let’s get busy.

Emily’s parents are very special to us as well.  Barry and I were honored to have photographed their wedding at the amazing Monte Verde Inn.   Their wedding was stunning, but their latest “creation” had me speechless.

 

We are always so tickled to have our brides and grooms come back to the studio with their growing families. 

Emily was also our first baby session in our new studio apartment space.  We were able to keep the room warm and toasty for her, and she didn’t seem mind any new poses we were wanted to try out.  We were even able to try out some of our latest baby accessories from JoCo Couture.

Oh, thank you Lindy and Matt for bringing in your precious little girl and letting me play with you guys.  I just love that our studio family continues to takes us on the best adventures and friendships.
