I cannot believe it has been over 4 months since I have blogged! I have so much to share that I don't even know where to start. Just to give you guys a little insight on why I haven't blogged...our busiest months are March to May. We have the privilege of doing photos for 3 dance schools as well as several daycares and, of course, we still have our studio sessions as well. Spring is definitely our busy season! And in addition to being busy here at the studio, my family has had a very busy and exciting spring as well. My hubby and I went on a nice trip for our 10th anniversary in March and just a few weeks later, we travelled to Oklahoma to attend my brother-in-law's beautiful wedding. So now that summer is here, it is time to slow down a bit and get prepped for the fall. And, of course, share some of these images that we have been creating over the last few months!
But before I start blogging sessions, I want to tell y'all about our Grand Opening. It was here at our studio on February 24th. We actually moved to our location on Pontchartrain Drive (our address is 328 Sun Valley Drive) back in September. But next to Spring, Fall is our busiest season. So the Grand Opening had to be put on hold for a few months...but it was so worth the wait! We had a great turnout. I am so appreciative for my family, friends and clients for coming out to support me. The East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce was such a pleasure to work with...and it was so nice to meet so many Chamber members who took time out of their day to come show their support. That's what the Chamber of Commerce is all about...and I am proud to be a member. And our mayor, Mr. Freddy Drennan, came out to show his support as well. We had one of our photo booths here (www.mobilememoriesbooth.com) and we did a few giveaways and had some yummy snacks. A sweet friend of mine made tacos that were so delicious....everyone loved them! And, of course, we had sandwiches from our neighbor, Subway, as well. It was a fun afternoon and although there was a forecast for rain, the weather was perfect.
If you weren't able to make the Grand Opening, feel free to stop in and say hi if you are in the area!
And a special thanks to my dear friend, Ingrid Jones, for capturing these images for me!
One of my favorite things about my job is getting the opportunity to work with clients regularly and see their kiddos grow! I worked with this adorable family about 6 months ago when their little boy was born. We were able to get some precious shots of him and his big sister. So I was excited when they came back to see me at the new studio to take family photos. Lena was looking for a really nice formal family shot to frame and put over her fireplace. She did a great job with the coordinating outfits. I can't wait to see how her framed print looks hanging over her fireplace in their home!
