the BIG unveiling!

We intentionally debated for a couple of weeks on whether to mention a teaser on the BLOG and FB page about a new change that I was working on. We consider this a BIG move for us and that may seem minute to some. Our digital world is changing every minute of the day and efficient online presence is expected. We earn about 60 percent of our business from referrals, 30 percent from print media advertising and 10 percent from search engines. Because of these statistics, we feel it necessary to grab the attention of potential clients in the first 30 seconds of them visiting our website. The last 1.5 years has been great and have received many rave comments about the website. Well, it was a time for a change… Last night we launched our new – upgraded website. This is huge for us because it’s my intention to stay fresh, appealing and add ease to our online viewers.

The new website screams bigger photos, efficient user experience, and increased search engine optimization (SEO). Although the site has change on the front end, our users will still find intuitive navigation. We truly hope you enjoy our new site.

Talk to you soon…

Meet the 'Tate' Family

I had a blast photographing my good friends, the Tate family. A few years ago I photographed their wedding and since then we have become repeat clients. The sole purpose of the session was for family pictures but much like adorable parents who love their children, took the high road and allowed the session to be about their daughter, Olivia. Some of you may recall that I photographed her one-year-old photos in their home. Olivia has since grown up. Because Olivia had a mind of her own, we had to schedule a second session about an hour after their first session. After she warmed back up to me, her laughable personality came out. She is a doll!

Reggie and Brennah, you all have a lovely family.

Pregnant and not feeling attractive? Well, Yalonda, brings back sexy and proves that a woman can still wear stilettos and a classy black dress that compliments your figure. Watch out ladies...here comes the extreme diva, Yalonda. The session was centered around pregnancy photos but also ended up being a family photo session. Congratulations to the both of you.

Lil Miss Addison

You gotta meet the sweetest baby there is in 2011 - lil' Miss Addison. Babies are so precious and fragile that I still get nervous around them. What amazes me the most is how tiny they are at the time of birth; with the expectancy that they will grow up to be grown adults. Having children is a joy, a daunting task of nurturing their minds, paying for their education, cars, dating, going through all the phases of adolescence and eventually marriage. One way of looking at it is, life is a vicious circle; beckoning us to the hands of responsibility. Congratulations Anthony and Courtney on your new bundle of joy.

Note...Anthony save your pennies because those little girls can get expensive.

Love you both!
