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  To replace the outdated photos hanging on the wall.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

What does it mean?

Yesterday was an amazing day.  A wedding day.  Every time I am able to attend a wedding it helps me to reflect on the promises I made to my wife on our wedding day.

This young couple yesterday, who happened to include a niece of mine as the bride,  chose to enter a new phase of her life as a wife.  Her new husband was excited as she was at this new stage in their life.

Afterward, we were able to take a few minutes to get some amazing images on their wedding day.  This one in particular is what is making me feel so fond.

The wedding rings are symbols to those who have committed to each other.  The wonderful symbolism entrenched in wedding rings is what I love about them.  A never ending circle with no beginning or end, made out of a precious metal.  Given as a gift to your spouse as your commitment to them.  It’s just beautiful.

So as they begin their new journey together, tomorrow starts our new journey with a new year.  Time to re-commit to our spouse, our loved ones, our children and become the person we were born to be.  All these deep thoughts, brought about by some wedding rings.
