Happy holidays, everyone!
Each holiday season I successfully photograph many family and children portraits. But when it comes to my own family card, it becomes one of the most difficult challenges of the year. Not only do I have the pressure of having to out do the previous year, but my angel, Hayden, suddenly turns into the anti-photo child. This year my wife thought that since Hayden enjoyed being a knight for Halloween, we could easily get him to wear the same costume for our Christmas card. We live near the Cloisters so the theme was there for the taking! When the day came to do the photograph, the costume was suddenly very itchy; apparently beyond wearable, though he did wear it for hours on Halloween. In hindsight maybe all the sugar had some kind of numbing effect. After many attempts at gentle persuasion, bribery, tears and then coercion, we mange to pull off another card. Yeah!
2008 was a wonderful year – I was able to experience new traditions and I enjoyed being a part of each of my client’s families for a day. To experience so much joy is uplifting. I am truly thankful and blessed.
Next year, I will be making some changes- I will have an updated website with a new brand identity, offer new products, and my services will include the addition of associate photographers. Also new for 2009, I will run various contests and promotions throughout the year. My first contest will launch on January 1st and I will be giving away one free full day of photography to one lucky couple – be sure to subscribe so that you don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity and be sure to let any of your friends know about this.
My calendar is staring to fill, be sure to drop me an e-mail or set up an appointment early next year.
I wish everyone the best this season holiday season!
Peace and happiness,
