Office Closed December 20 - January 8


Today is my last working day before the holiday, and I'm happy to say that I finally caught up with everything. By the end of the day, I will have finished proofing all of this year's sessions and mailed all print orders that were received before December 16.

Now I will be taking a much-needed break which means NO work! All emails and phone calls will be returned after I return to work January 9th.

I sometimes receive dozens of emails in just one day so it may take a few days to reply to everything in January. I will also be working on albums and print orders in the order that they are received. The sooner I get your photo lists, the sooner you will get your album.

Thank you to those who have included me on their Christmas card lists. I didn't send out Christmas cards this year, but I appreciated getting a few.

I hope you all have a happy holiday with your families!

I am currently working on orders and sessions through November 19.

I hope to have all of this year's sessions proofed before taking off for the holidays on December 20. Remember that I do process orders in the order that they're received. If I am waiting on photo choices for your album or engagement book then the sooner you email me your list, the higher up you will be on my "to do" list in January.

I'm feeling the holiday spirit today so everyone wins! Zach, Cayci, Meghan, Emily, Sara, and Tiffany took the time to leave a comment so they all get a free 5x7 (just put it in the notes section of your next order).

Why is it that people let the stress of the season get to them and end up being so unhappy and rude? Instead of focusing on the religious, family, charity, and all-around happy aspects of the season, too many people are busy shopping, planning, and stressing out.

Yesterday I stood in line at the post office for over half an hour, but what do you expect this time of year? There were two people working the counter, and one of them had the flu and was obviously feeling really bad. At one point he had to close his "window" to go out and put a sign on a stamp machine that wasn't working, and the people in line behind me about threw a fit. They were all extremely rude and carried on about how they shouldn't have to wait and he didn't need to be taking a break when there was a line etc etc. It was embarrassing.

Later in the day, I drove along behind a car for about 2 miles and saw him honk at no less than 4 different people that he was unhappy with for one reason or another. I even had someone honk at me because I came to a complete stop at a stop sign instead of just getting out of their way.

So I'm thinking that everyone needs to try to relax and cheer up. I know that getting a good bargain or especially getting things for free usually cheers me up so...

I'm going to have some random "happy days". Everyone who qualifies for a given day will be entered in a random drawing to win something (winner announced the next day). The entries will start anew each time, but you can win more than once.

* Today's winner will receive one free 5x7" print with their next order.
* To qualify, you need to share some holiday cheer today by leaving a comment on a photo session post. You can choose any session you want, but those in the last month or two are more likely to be found and appreciated. If you're feeling nice then you can leave several, but it won't increase your chances of winning.

ETA: The "day" will end 24 hours after being posted.
