I am just going to make this a quick post as I have plenty of work to do, and I just wanted my customers to know I’m not one of those photographers that thinks they need the luxury of taking a week or two off during the holidays. Heck, my kiddo is going to daycare, I might as well be making money! 😉 And the thought of anyone having to wait that long for a response to a question or to place an order makes me sick. It must be that same gene that inflicts the mom-guilt. LOL!
Back to the Thorsons… so believe it or not… but this family has NEVER, I repeat, NEVER had their family portrait taken! Can you believe it? Tragic, I know!
(Collin’s only three, and although I can take professional portraits myself I have still already had four other professional portrait sessions for our family)
I am a firm believer in having portraits taken once per year. This is easier to do when you have a baby in the family, because they are changing so fast, but as they get older it’s a good habit to keep. Simply because you never know what life has in store. Life is way, way, too short sometimes and I want to make sure I have plenty of up-to-date pictures of my loved ones to look at and reminisce about the good times. (Even while we are all still living to enjoy them.)
Anyhow, I digress. So, this adorable family was in dire need of some family portraits, and I must say, we got all the bases covered! We have some great, fun images of the kids together… a priceless picture of mom and dad… and a great shot of everyone looking like they are very happy.
Don’t you just love them?!
Happy New Year! I am so excited to ring in 2011 and share my new Rebecca Lynne Photography, real.life.blog with you. I thought it would be nice to have a fresh, new look for the new year. Plus, this blog format allows me to create multiple posts and “schedule” them to post. That’s the main reason for the change.
I am a firm believer in using the new year as an opportunity to reflect on the past and create goals for the future. I feel like I’ve done a really great job blogging and staying current with my posts, but I would like to become more efficient with my workflow and to be honest, blogging was eating up quite a bit of my time.
I would try to create a blog post immediately after I finished proofing someone’s session images, which was fine, but just about everyone knows that the more you can do one thing without having to switch gears the more efficient you will be. Hence, the concept of creating multiple posts one time each week from the previous week’s sessions and then scheduling them all to post on various days throughout the week. I’m thinking 3 times/week. Monday, Wed, and Friday. That’s the plan, anyway!
So, enough of this boring, business stuff. You’re not interested in that stuff anyway. You’re here to see images, right?! Well, have I got some cute ones for you!
These were taken a couple weeks before Christmas, but I never got a chance to feature them on the blog and I really wanted to because their mama is such a peach and I just love her to death. We have known each other a looong time and I just feel honored every time I get to photograph her two adorable girls, Morgan and Marlee.
