Hello again, I was dying to post some of these maternity pictures...I had so much fun with this Mommy to be...She was beautiful, and had such a sense of style! These are just a few of my many favorites, but I wanted her to get to see a few, and anyone else that actually looks at this~ Hopefully there is a few of you!!! Please let me know what you think of this style of maternity session...we did alot of different stuff, but I just loved the camo! Hopefully she will be just as excited as I am...now, back to weddings and ordering...I just sneak back and forth to some of my sessions to give me a break, it keeps it fun for me! Like I said, let me know what you think! ~Penny

Its been a very busy summer so far for me...I thought I would post a few of the sessions I'm just finishing up with. There are a few engagement sessions, and a few families, all tons of fun! I'm working on adding KIMBRA jewelery line to my price list, its a little pricey, and I don't make hardly anything on it, but I WANT IT!! I keep thinking I am going to take some time to do my own 4 girls for some pictures...I need a new one, and I want it for a bracelet, I need a sample...right! Anyways...I've got to clean my house tomorrow, I've already warned my troops, I have another maternity session on Wed, and I'd die if anyone saw it this bad. So I thought I would stay up late and get a few more done...and give you a few, so you know I'm still here, behind the computer....

Well, I've had to make some changes to my business for my life...Does that make sense?? As most of you know, I'm not very good at saying "No", so that gets me overbooked, and feeling completely overwhelmed with editing, and ordering...and ordering prints is very time consuming, and then once I receive orders, I have to sort them, invoice them, contact my clients and try to get together for them to be picked up.....ok, there is just not enough time in my day! I want to be able to do more things, like fit more sessions in! I'm so sorry to those that I've had to turn down...I'd like to be able to get to more of you...I'd also like to be able to check into different products that I'd like to have for my clients, (like jewelry and handbags, fun stuff!) So I have made a choice to use a lab that takes the orders for me, and also sends them directly to you....They will also handle my album design, so there will be some different options for albums, and even proofbooks. Once I have it all figured out, I will add the information to my website, one good thing, they also take charge cards, which I haven't done until now. All sessions and orders as of August 1, 2008 will have this option. I may try it out on a few of you just to see how it goes. Hopefully the transition will be a smooth one....I had to raise my prices a little to be able to afford this service, but hopefully this will give me more time and energy to be a photographer and a MOM, not stuck here behind the computer! Everyone say a prayer for me, and please be patient with me...Hopefully this will be best for me, my family and all of you, if not...I'll go back to what I was doing...as for now, this is the change in my life~

I'm sorry its been so long since I've added anything to this...I was afraid this would happen! I have about 3 engagement sessions I'm working on, and my poor bride Angela!! She has been waiting so patiently...I have them done FINALLY!! I've been trying to get them ordered all day, for some reason...you know, when you're in a hurry, and lost all patience....the Lord gives me something I have to be patient with...Well, that's what happened today. For some reason, I haven't been able to upload the 300 prints for her proof book...I've tried, and tried....and still nothing. Its after midnight, and I've about gave up. I've even been trying to get her slide show online, I thought I'd surprise her...the music won't upload, so I've been having trouble with that too!! I thought, OK...I'll put one of my favorites of her wedding on here tonight, so she doesn't think I've totally forgot her...Angie this is for you! I don't know if you look at this or not, if you do...I'm publicly telling you "I'm sorry for taking so long, and thank you for being such a doll!" Everyone that knows her would tell you this...she has been incredible to work with, and I've needed her! I'm so swamped, I can't get my orders put in, and everything edited...and she said, you take all the time you need, I'll wait! WOW! Can you believe that...the Lord sends me blessings in so many ways, and Angela has been a blessing. Everyone reading this, say a quick prayer for me...I need it! GOOD NIGHT~ Penny
