New and Exciting

Can I just say that I know some of the most encouraging people ever? Many times, the confidence that you have had in me has been much greater than the confidence I have had in myself.

You may be a family member, old friend, new friend, FB friend, or blog lurker, but if you've said something nice about my work, told someone else something nice about my work, or asked me to work for you, I just want to say a big Texas "Thank you."

I am moving my photography-related posts to another blog. I've been trying to get it going since the spring, but it's time to just start with something, even if it's not exactly the way I want it yet. So feel free to check it out, follow, add me to your reader, etc.

One of the goals I have for myself it to work this biz Dave Ramsey style. Even if it means starting slowly, I do not want to borrow money. I am happy to say that I will soon have enough money for my own website. Then, clients will be able to view their images and order prints from me. When I reach that point, I will not be giving away digital files like I have been for my portfolio-building sessions. I just wanted to give all of my biggest supporters a heads-up that a change is coming. Don't worry because I'm not there yet, and I'll give plenty of warning before I transition.

Thanks again for giving me the "push" I needed!

A Major Milestone

in every Texan's life is his or her first visit to the Alamo. Here is a picture of E, T, and me on this oh-so-important day in their lives.

I am up to my eyeballs in pictures (a very good thing) from our trips and from some adorable kiddos, so this is all ya get right now. Thanks, Grammy and Pa for inviting us to join you in San Antonio! By the way, Grammy, I stole this from your FB since my pics are still on the ole memory card.
