January 2018 and the New Year

As will all good things, 2017 has come to an end.  But, now it’s a new beginning and time to start looking ahead to what 2018 has to offer.  There is so much potential in this year that it’s hard to comprehend at times.  But really, it’s all up to us!  Here are some of our goals for 2018:

• Build a new studio facility (will also be available for rent)

• Offer photography classes

• Photograph more wonderful people than last year

• Stay positive all year long

What are some of your New Year’s goals and dreams?

 

Christmas

Now is the perfect time to schedule Christmas portraits.  Put it off any later, and you might just miss the deadline for a Christmas delivery.  With the print volume from the photo lab increasing this time of year, production runs 1-2 weeks later.  So plan ahead for those portrait gifts!

Top 3 Reasons to have your Portrait Taken

Here are the top 3 reasons to have a current portrait made of yourself or loved one.

1.  To replace the outdated photos hanging on the wall.  We are all in the same boat on this one.  There are several photos on the wall, many of them our own children.  I look at a beautiful one I have, looking at my 3 children ( I now have 5).  So it’s a bit dated.  Time to take care of that.

2.  So you can send photos to your family.  I have members of my family I haven’t seen in years.  They know I exist through Facebook and random phone calls about miscellaneous life events.  But I know for a fact, they are not current on my I look like or my kiddos.  They remember small details like, they have a boy, and a girl, and some go to school.  Help them remember.  Send them a photo.

3.  The third reason to have your portrait taken is that it isn’t painful or time consuming.  Sure, you have to think about it and make sure schedules work.  But I’m flexible.  It’s what I do.  Weekends?  Sure.  Evenings?  No problem.  Holidays?  Not so much.  🙂  Trust me, get it done and you’ll be happy you did.  It doesn’t take long and the results will speak for themselves.

Portraits

What makes up a portrait.  Well for one, there needs to be someone in the photo.  You.  You make a portrait so special.  Without you, it would just be a photo of a background, a place outdoors, or the grass or rocks around.  You give a portrait life, you make it important.  You make a portrait an heirloom.  Something your family will treasure for generations.  You give the portrait a meaning to exist.  Without you, there is no purpose of a portrait.

What do I specialize in.  Portraits of you.  417-894-0230

Wednesday is Drawing Day

Today I’m giving away a 5×5 Framed photo from one of your sessions.  But you have to do a little work to win.  Suggest all your friends to become our Fans on Facebook and I’ll enter your name into the hat.  Next Wednesday I’ll draw from those who entered and announce the winner!  You can earn a second entry by leaving a review of your experience with the studio on the Fanpage.   This allows everyone to enter, past clients, current clients and any complimentary sessions!!!  That’s it, go enter!!!   HERE IS THE FANPAGE

Passion – Love – Commitment

Not only are these three things feelings that I have for my relationship with my spouse.  They are three feelings I have toward the artwork I produce.  It’s been a wonderful journey to arrive to where I am today and I am truly grateful that I have passion, love and commitment to my craft or I would have given up out of frustration years ago.  But enduring through my creative pitfalls and learning techniques that I lacked when I first started, I believe I’ve truly become an artist today.  So when you schedule your appointment, you aren’t just getting someone who thinks they can make a quick buck because I have a fancy camera.  You are getting someone committed to what they are doing.  Someone who is committed to giving you the best experience and the best end result possible.  Don’t be fooled my imitators or newcomers with no experience.  It will save you  a dollar or two to start with, but down the road those feelings of regret and remorse will not bring your irreplaceable memories back for you.

Don’t let Fall Pass You By.

Fall is here.  Soon the beautiful leaves won’t be.  Don’t hesitate, get your photos done before the weather turns cold.  Get the beautiful fall colors while they are going on outdoors.  Get them done in time for Christmas!  So many reasons to get your photos done now!  Do I have to list them all?

Cheerific!!!

Just had to share some of my latest creations with the help of some of the local High School Cheer Leaders!   These Girls are amazing at what they do, so if you see them at a game…CHEER!!!
