All New 2017!

Hello again,

I've taken a good month and a half off, which feels like forever.  I took some much needed mental time and came out feeling a little fresher and more determined.

I usually write about some things that I've learned in the past year, but since moving, remodeling, building and chasing a husband, 3 kids and some random pets - I can't recall any new and shiny wisdom.  Probably the only thing that comes to mind is you need to buy a big bottle of vodka (for those mules!) before embarking on a home remodel :)

I've come to a pricing epiphany for 2017...wait for it...

A 40 - 50 minute session. 35 - 40 images for you to keep (high resolution) all delivered electronically. $600.  Voila - easy!

I find that most of my clients want the images to print and keep so this will streamline the process.

I had the cutest Valentine's shoot in the new studio yesterday! Enjoy and I look forward to 2017!

I am thankful!

Helllllooooo winter, finally (I think).

I can't say I've been too sad about the 70s and getting in all the holiday pictures I can.  I feel like I'm wrapping up a whirl-wind season of STELLAR clients and beautiful children.  Wow, what blessings I have!

Just taking a minute in the day to say THANK YOU to all who make me a part of your family and letting me create memories.  I leave you with this fun stinker...














I woke up.
I have clothes to wear.
I have running water.
I have food to eat.
Life is good.
God is great.
I am thankful.

Fall Time

I know it's a little early to start talking about fall pictures - but it is by far the most popular time for pictures around Windsor!  I have lots of dates already booked and hope to get some final dates on the calendar.  See me soon if this is what you are looking to do!

I realized I rarely take pictures "just for fun", sadly enough.  I follow these wonderful insta-gramers and bloggers that just snap daily and I'm trying to have more fun with my camera.  I encourage you to do the same as you never know when something to hang up might present itself!

Here's a favorite of mine from Nashville from last weekend.  I heard quite a few renditions of "Friends in Low Places" and "Jolene" and we rocked out along the way!

Texting works for appointments too - 970.331.5685.  Enjoy the heat!

Senior Time!

I just read in my last post I couldn't believe the New Year was here, now I'm amazed that the kids are out of school!  This really is the time to start thinking about senior pictures - I'm already booking quite a few appointments so call me soon to get yours (970.331.5685)  I'd love to be a part of your last high school year.

The weather seems to finally be cooperating and evening pictures are turning out wonderful - this is by far my favorite season.  You get to stay up late and drink it all in... and hello camping!

I had a great time with some CSU graduates and had to share some of my favorites. Enjoy - Jen

2016

Wow, is anyone else surprised that 2016 is here?  As usual, it just snuck up on me.

I've had a nasty cold/respiratory infection.  So my days spent on the couch have given me insight into accident lawyers, prescription drugs and the AARP.  I'm now super thankful for good health and my little business.

Per tradition, here is what I've learned in 2015:


  • Dogs and guinea pigs aren't always simpatico
  • Always get paid up front 
  • Did you know that the oldest women in the world right now is 118?
  • Life isn't fair
  • Little kids all have a voice and want to be heard
  • Pictures stress people out
  • I can't compare myself to others
  • I used to think 9 people could live in a large house together, save rent.  I don't anymore.


I really look forward to a laid-back, picture lovin' year.  I'm scheduling for all of 2016!  Thanks again for stopping by...

Blogging

Oh yeah, I forgot I have a blog (yikes!)  I've been doing some housecleaning on the website and can finally give some time to the blog.

Some updates:

  • Christmas Card templates are up
  • I have just a few appointment times left for 2015 - call soon if you want a spot
  • I get asked often if I photograph wedding and the answer is yes!  I finally updated the website to have a 'getting hitched' gallery.  Just email me for a wedding quote
Stay tuned for some amazing families to be up on the website and Facebook - I really can't wait to meet up with them and see what happens!

Enjoy the start of fall colors - Jen

Senior Pictures...and Fall!

I've found a couple of minutes to update the blog...it's been on my to-do list for a while now.  I'm booking the rest of 2015 and hope to hear from you soon!  My dates are starting to fill up.

Enjoy what is left of our summer - the kids made a bucket list and we need to visit the zoo, museum, wild animal sanctuary, go bowling, ride a rollercoaster at Elitches and hit a few slides at Water World. Yikes for me and my wallet - but non-the-less fun.

Here's a recent beach session picture - loving the laid back vibe!
