Miss Harper turned 1 and I had the privilege of taking her One Year photos that included a fantastic Cake Smash!! She was so serious about eating her wonderful cake her momma made her! I’ll admit freely that I also had a little snack of cake at the end of the session, too! 🙂
Oh boy do I need to do some catching up on the blog!!! Well, here’s a start…
I was enjoying lunch at Yesterday’s sandwich shop in town on Valentine’s Day with my guy. I love this place!! It’s dangerously close to the studio (about 30 steps!) and so yummy!!
Anyhow, while we were eating I noticed at the next table a couple of young moms with their babies and I cringed that I left my wallet with cards in the studio. So I walked down real quick to grab a handful and went back to sit and try to muster up the courage to talk to these strangers…not just talk but promote myself. My guy was no help, bless his heart, he’s so shy. He goes, “I wouldn’t do it.” Thanks for the help honey!!
As they’re getting ready to leave I’m losing my chance to spread the word of my just opened photography studio, so I walk over and begin to introduce myself as a photographer and hand them my cards. One of them starts laughing and says, “Were you listening to our conversation?” Oh, bleep! is pretty much what crossed my mind. What did I do?!
They said they were just talking about getting the kids’ photos taken and then I come up and introduce myself. Purely a divine coincidence. I did NOT eavesdrop on potential clients!! haha (not saying I wouldn’t, but I simply didn’t this time)
Lindsey emailed me and came in the studio to set up Mr. Kase’s photo session for his first birthday which had just passed the week before. After all was said and done I am SOOOO happy I went over and talked to them. Kase is absolutely precious and hopefully a new life long client!!
Yesterday morning I couldn’t wait to get to the park to shoot my next appointment. Yes it was barely reading 45 degrees outside and the skies were very overcast but I was meeting with my friend Christy who I used to work with a few years ago and her adorable little girl, Cami, who just turned the big 3! I live way out in the sticks west of Fort Worth and she resides in the big D so we rarely get to see each other outside of Facebook.
Christy is a very talented interior designer, visit her website here. Her style is so fresh, chic, and inspiring! Be forewarned you’ll want to have her redecorate your entire home! She even has a catalog of her original custom crib bedding that is adorable beyond words!
