Recent Session

…with a new favorite. Cassie & her family.

Cassie was a referral from another new fave of mine, Whitney. Cassie was so funny, when she came to the studio to do an in person ordering session she made me giggle, we had a great time like old friends and even though the studio isn’t quite set up for in person ordering YET we managed to get some ordering done as well.

This fall has been amazing really, some of my favorite work came out of this season of crazy. While many photographers sometimes bemoan the lack of creativity a larger volume of clients brings in (and the holiday is THAT time), I find it a fun challenge to continually outdo myself artistically each time. I find myself giving myself little challenges. “How far can I push this light?” “What happens if I act like a nut in front of these kids?” “What happens if…” goes through my mind frequently during the busier times…I constantly find myself stretching.

The funny thing about her session is that we got the most amazing images I think I have ever taken all within an hour. This was a session of 3 kids, five years old and under and two adults. The light disappeared SO quickly for us and it didn’t help that I messed up and was hanging out at the studio for them instead of where I needed to be for their session (November, the end of the season of crazy busy-ness is also a time where I get all my elements messed up. I swear, 2008 will bring some staff to Marmaland! It’s on my wish list.) Regardless of everything working against us I am thrilled to present some highlights from Cassie’s session just a wonderful family session and I absolutely cannot wait to see how the gallery wall turns out for Cassie and family.

Ordered as a large gallery wrap, HAPPINESS is when a client gets me

More session highlights to come in the coming weeks as life winds down. Also, a big Happy Birthday to my almost 6 year old (tomorrow). Couldn’t imagine my life without her although her arrival into this world was wrought with drama! Here’s a peek into what part of our 2007 Holiday Card holds…

Thanks for stopping in. In the next day or two, wait til you see the shopping links I have come up with.

In the next week or so our latest client Q&A.

Finally, will be out of the office from 12/6 until 12/12 for a much needed short trip to see the Mouse and all his friends in FL.

xoxo, Mare

    thanks E! I had a good but cold time with the kids the other day, I can only be thankful that we got a bunch of usable shots, I’d hate to torture them again in the cold!
