This time of year is just INSANE! I’m taking senior portraits, I’m doing a couple weddings, I’ve got a business headshot and a couple kid/family photo sessions in the mix… it’s just hard to keep on top of it all in the late summer. Not to mention the fact that my oldest son isn’t in school but isn’t real excited about daycare anymore and it’s not like we live in town and he can go play with the neighbors. It’s a crazy, but GOOD, very good life.
But you might wonder, what do you do when it’s not the busy season, Rebecca???
That is a great question and I’m about to share a photo session with you that I did in my slower season (AKA Jan/Feb/March). In addition to filing my taxes, taking care of any newborn sessions, attending conventions and creating new marketing materials… I pick up a session for commercial product photography here and there. (I was thinking that was a slow season, but it still sounds like I’m doing a lot, doesn’t it???)
This past year that included a photo shoot for a local company, based out of Albert Lea, MN that has been creating natural based products for 16 years now. It’s owned/managed by Jena Thompson who is a wonderful, inspiring woman with a great entrepreneurial spirit. She has decided to use the direct marketing model for her products so she has consultants that host home parties as a way to encourage other people to try these amazing lotions, soaps and other great products.
I had the honor of seeing Jena in action speaking passionately about her company for the June meeting of the Albert Lea Entrepreneur Advancement Program (ALEAP). It was there that I finally got to see the images I had captured of Daisy Blue Products in print, in their Spring/Summer Catalog! Here’s the link to view the catalog virtually. You’ll be able to see my images below so you know which ones are mine in the catalog.
My main objective capturing images for Jena was simple. I wanted to blow her away with some really great, lifestyle product photography. I made sure she knew I had a beautiful new home that would be perfect for staging some “real life” type of shots. Thankfully, she was game! I’m excited to see what kind of images we can create in the future with live models and put into action all sorts of other ideas we have.

Hello my friends!
Today is a beautiful summer day here in Iowa. I’m thrilled to be sharing these photos with you today because this little lady just turned the BIG 1!!! She is a sweet, smart, expressive little girl who loves to go-go-go! This wood on my studio porch is actually from Shay’s great-grandpa’s barn! So that is pretty awesome and significant, if I do say so myself.
Her actual birthday was Wednesday, but the big bash is this weekend so I can’t wait to see all the fun pictures they post on Facebook. She really loved the cake they let her dig into Wed night so I’m thinking after a little practice she’ll be a pro at it come tomorrow!
