Looking forward to SUMMER…and PHOTOGRAPHY

As I sip on my coffee this morning, I look at my desk and see several things I need to do (including an actual LIST of additional things)…register my daughter for a softball camp at CMU (Fire Up, CHIPS!!), place a couple of orders for prints, design a few more graduation announcements, add the money from that iTunes card I got two weeks ago, check on the status of the grant I applied for…Man, the list goes on!  Anyway, the point is…we are ALL very busy daily.  I know that things sneak past you…please tell me that they do!  So, I’m just looking forward to the laid back style of summer and the chance to do something good for someone.


My birthday was last week on (the official opening of summer)  Memorial Day.  It was so nice to have the day off to spend with my family.  I took in a parade and snapped some nice pictures of the VFW ceremony and cried for those we’ve lost.  It made me think more about my family and how I would like to do something for those who do so much for us, often without an appropriate thank you.  Last year, for a short time, I offered free session fee’s for anyone who could show military or emergency services personnel identification (in honor of my personal heroes, my brothers).  Upon reflecting a little, I’ve decided to make it a permanent discountAny session, any time, bring your identification and your family and I will take your photos for free to say thank you for the sacrifice you and your family make everyday.


In addition, I’m looking for a family to provide a free mini session for.  Please submit your entry in the comment form below, or at my Facebook page: and tell me about a MILITARY or EMS family that you would like to receive a free photo session (even if it is your family).  Valued at $50, the mini session would last about 30 minutes, in-studio or on-location and the family would receive either a CD with 5 – 10 edited images or prints (2- 8x10s, 2-5x7s and 16-wallets).  This will run thru the end of June.  I look forward to your submissions.
