I especially liked the camo dress that she brought in with some of her Dad's duck calls to hang in the background.
Alas a third accomplishment - we finalized the design for our new office cabinets. It has literally taken over a year for us to decide on the cabinet layout. We're probably too picky - but we want them just right in hopes that everything might finally have a place of it's own (otherwise Sara is going to lose her mind trying to keep the business & Ben organized!)
It was definitely a crazy Friday - but at least we got to relax with a bunch of friends at the end of the day. A large group of couples went out to celebrate some 30th birthdays (don't worry - I won't give away who you girls are!) We got to experience Graze in Davenport - a very interesting & classy restaurant. But I can definitely say we've never paid that much for a meal before - our dining out typically involves 2 little boys & McD's! The relaxing never lasts long for us though as Ben is busy today with 3 portrait sessions of babies.
Clients now have 2 framing options...
Browse the frames in the catalog & let us know which frames you'd like to order OR
Give us an idea of what frame color/style they're looking for & we'll find the perfect frame for you! We now have the capability to build custom frames using our supplier's website. We can even send a link to you via email that will let you see what your portraits look like in the custom frames. We think this is something all clients are going to LOVE - we're stoked!
Trisha is anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby ???? Since she doesn't know what she is having we decided on a green wrap because Brian's a John Deere man. When she came in for maternity portraits with Calli a few years ago we were taking portraits in my living room. Things have changed quite a bit since then. It's amazing how fast time flies when your busy!! Good luck Brian and Trisha.
Part of the reason we're finally getting this blog going is because we've changed our website some. Portraits used to be online for viewing & ordering for one month... but we've had to change that due to an increase in web hosting costs. We've grown so fast that there were just too many portraits online & we were exceeding our storage limits. Now portraits will only be online for viewing & ordering for 2 days before they go into archive. Once portraits go into archive it's a $25 fee to regain access to them. Of course, all clients are always welcome to come in to order if they don't get their order in on time.
So.... many of you are probably saying but seriously I love going in to look at everyone's portraits! :( You'll still be able to... just for a shorter time. You'll have to visit our site often OR you can visit this great new blog if you miss them. We plan to post our favorite pics from each session for all to see. This will be a great opportunity for all to get low res downloads for use on your desktop, digital picture frames, Facebook etc. - which we know many of you have been wanting for a long time!
We're going to try our best to keep this blog updated regularly... but no promises yet as this is something totally new for us to get used to!
