{UPDATE!   Little Ian Edward Mulligan made his grand entrance last night at 9:18 pm!  He is just over 5 pounds of perfect and the family is doing great!  Yea God!}

 

We got word this afternoon that our beloved Jen…..Jill of all Trades…is in the hospital with preterm labor.  Her and Evan’s baby boy is due in 4.5 weeks, so we are all praying for a bit more time.  But we also pray for a safe delivery and health for the baby and Jen if he must be born tonight or tomorrow.

Here are some snaps from our little “going away party” we gave Jen last month.  The kids loved the watermelon ice cream cake…..and Jen loved her ridiculously awesome 30×40 inch canvas gallery wrap!  But do you think she could stay away?  No…through tears when she saw the canvas wrap, she said she’d be back once a week till the baby came.

We love you Jen!  We are praying for you and your sweet family.

 


I finally took some pictures of our new studio! I was waiting forever to get all the framed art on the wall, then it just kept slipping my mind. To see these images bigger, make sure to check out the “About” then the “studio” section of the website….


The time has finally come to launch our new site!!! Hope you love it as much as I do! There are a few kinks to work out, so please bear with us. We will be working on adding our products pages and links to view your proofs throughout the next day. It takes about 72 hours for all the search engines to recognize new pages, so you might be seeing the new site on one visit and the old site on another visit. Thanks!


Holy Holiday Card Mania!!!!

Each year Matt and I make a solemn vow to one another…..Let’s not make this holiday season seem as crazy as last! For me, that would entail not staying up until 2am each morning designing holiday cards. Sooo….this season I had a grand plan. I would hire a graphic designer to make a bunch of templates that clients could choose from for their cards. Then I would plug and chug. Sounds reasonable, most other photographers I know employ this tactic.

First, I was just too type A and controlling to send out all the work to a graphic designer. So I made many of my own templates. That took weeks. Next, I just could not adhere to them! Clients would choose one, then when it was time to start plugging and chugging, well I just kept on going. And going. The result? What seems like 100’s of custom designed, no 2 are alike, gorgeous holiday cards.

Sleepless or not, I just love them. Now, if I could only come up with a grander idea for our OWN card. (last year, they were back from the printer and in the mail on December 23. Nice!)

NEXT year, we will try that vow again….
