A Bunch of 'News'

Lots of "new" has been going on around here this week!   I've added a new pricing format and a spiffy new song to my site, as well as a facebook fan site ...Now how well I'm going to do at keeping up with that AND a blog, I'm not sure! And thanks to the precious McCright family making me realize just how much I do, in fact, actually enjoy family shoots ...I've opted to take on a limited amount of family shoots/ children each month. I had a friend tell me she didn't think I would be able to last long with my decision to quit doing children's photography and she was right!  Now for the other "news"!

New school year: Zane, my kindergartner keeps thanking me profusely for "signing him up for school" and is still asking if I'm going to let him return the following day! ... To which of course my reply is: "Only if you keep behaving at school." :). And Cole is very proud of his mature 4th grade status!

New Baby: Isn't she just a DOLL?!

New Baby Bump:
Pics including a newly acquired tattoo, and a new experience for encounter with a rattlesnake while on a shoot!:

New One Year Old Nephew :)
Have a spectacular Monday everyone!

And so it begins...

I must confess, I'm quite the blog stalker. Chances are if I know you, I read your blog. It's my guilty pleasure that ranks right up there with my daily devotion to Sonic's happy hour and playing Texas Hold 'Em. ...In fact, as I type this, I notice Molly Swanson's blog, specsandwings (any hints on how to insert a hyperlink anyone??), is pulled up in another window. Love her blog! I've suggested she design a 'specsandwings stalker' shirt. I would wear it with pride!... I'm currently procrastinating cleaning our my closet, so... I've decided to join the growing trend of blogging instead.

And what a perfect opportunity to tell you about my Senior Portrait Give Away!

I love giving back to others and with school right around the corner, figured a contest honoring an unsuspecting senior was in order! So if I happen to have any readers (!) that just happen to know a well deserving senior, here's how it works:

1. Send me an email to telling me all about the Midland/ Odessa senior you're nominating, what makes them unique, how they give back to the community and explaining why you think they should win. Creativity and funny stories will earn big points and if you can make me cry (which isn't hard to do!), then it's a sure win. I want tears people!!

2. Submission deadline is Sept. 30th. The winning entry will announced on my blog October 1st and will receive a free senior session and cd of 12 high res. images (a $300 value) ABSOLUTELY FREE! But wait, there's more! If the senior you nominate gets picked, you will receive a 50% discount off a future sitting fee! So what are you waiting for? Get typing!
