Happy Thanksgiving! Some sneak peeks and a SALE!

November 21st, 2012

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I’m leaving on a jet plane at the crack of dawn tomorrow, headed over the hill and through the woods to (almost) gradmother’s house. Actually my 93 year old great-aunt; my grandmother’s sister. My grandmother passed in 2005 and she and my great-aunt were seriously best of friends their whole lives. Therefore […]

 

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I’m leaving on a jet plane at the crack of dawn tomorrow, headed over the hill and through the woods to (almost) gradmother’s house. Actually my 93 year old great-aunt; my grandmother’s sister. My grandmother passed in 2005 and she and my great-aunt were seriously best of friends their whole lives. Therefore my great-aunt visited KC often and we visited her in Louisville, Kentucky often. She is a third grandmother to me. I am THANKFUL she has lived such a long and healthy life and THANKFUL to be headed to Kentucky tomorrow for a few days with her and all of my other family that lives in Louisville. Her father died just shy of his 104th birthday; she is so healthy we all think she is aiming to beat him out! 🙂

Before I go to the Bluegrass State, I wanted to give everyone some sneak peeks that have been posted on my Facebook page – these are all sessions that will be blogged after the holiday weekend, all shot in the past week or so. Family sessions, senior sessions, engagement sessions, I still am very busy!

After these sneak peek images is a repeat post of my SALE flyer! The SDP 4th Annual Holiday Sale starts Friday, THIS Friday! Go shopping all you want and get 25% off EVERYTHING in my online galleries Friday through December 7th! All you need to do is enter the code SDPHolidaySale2012 at checkout. Now’s a great time to buy that piece of canvas wall art you always wanted, or to buy prints of your favorite shots for all of your family!

Here are those sneak peek images, followed by the sale flyer! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

It’s almost time to go shopping!

November 10th, 2012

All you shoppers out there, take note! SDP is about to launch our ever-popular Holiday Sale, version 4.0. Those of you who have wanted to order prints but have held off? Now is your time. Those of you who wanted a canvas but were waiting for the sale to get a good deal? You’re good […]

 

All you shoppers out there, take note! SDP is about to launch our ever-popular Holiday Sale, version 4.0. Those of you who have wanted to order prints but have held off? Now is your time. Those of you who wanted a canvas but were waiting for the sale to get a good deal? You’re good to go. This is a GREAT time to order prints for Christmas gifts, order electronic files for Christmas cards, or order that piece of gorgeous wall art that you have always wanted.

Here’s the scoop. All galleries are eligible (even those events and shoots from 2010 that are still posted!) and everyone who was a 2012 client of SDP will also receive an email notification. Of course, pass the information along to friends or family who may like to shop as well! The sale runs from November 23rd (Black Friday) through December 7th – or two weeks. Everything ordered by sale’s end is guaranteed for Christmas delivery, HOWever, if you are ordering in the last few days of the sale I strongly suggest upgrading to the Priority Mail shipping option.

All items that can be ordered online – prints, canvases, electronic files, gift items – they are ALL 25% off. Just enter the code SDPHolidaySale2012 at checkout starting at midnight on Friday November 23rd (meaning midnight right after Thanksgiving dinner is finished!) and you will be credited with the discount at checkout.

Just a reminder – this is posted at the top of the blog, but I am booked full until after Thanksgiving as far as portrait sessions go – I have limited weekend availability remaining in December, but it is going very quickly so act fast if you want to get in! I’ve got lots of availability coming up in January and February. Winter is a GREAT time to shoot – as a wedding photographer, it’s the best time to schedule me if you need a weekend session slot! I often can’t book weekend portraits during the warm weather months due to my wedding schedule.

Happy Shopping!

Brandi S | bridal session

November 6th, 2012

I was looking forward to Brandi’s bridal session for quite some time, as she was bringing her whole menagerie along. LOVED it! Always love doing bridal sessions AFTER the wedding, so we don’t have to be as paranoid about the dress. Which is good since Brandi spent a good amount of time on horseback!

Jamie R | an equine-themed senior session

September 25th, 2012

What an awesome session this was. Of course whenever someone wants to work their horse into their portrait session, I’m all over it! Jamie was one of those clients. We had an absolutely amazing evening with amazing light and her horse was absolutely the best behaved, most cooperative horse I’ve EVER shot (and that is […]

 

What an awesome session this was. Of course whenever someone wants to work their horse into their portrait session, I’m all over it! Jamie was one of those clients. We had an absolutely amazing evening with amazing light and her horse was absolutely the best behaved, most cooperative horse I’ve EVER shot (and that is saying a lot as I have photographed a LOT of horses!). Enjoy the images and this gorgeous fall weather!

Christy H | equine portrait session

August 14th, 2012

Fellow photographer Christy asked me to do a session with her and her appaloosa gelding, Tonka, and I of COURSE jumped at the chance! Originally this was to be a bit of a bridal session, but Christy’s poor wedding dress suffered a bit of a cat-induced calamity. (thank goodness she’s already married!) We just went […]

Originally this was to be a bit of a bridal session, but Christy’s poor wedding dress suffered a bit of a cat-induced calamity. (thank goodness she’s already married!) We just went with a good old portrait session, early on a July morning – earrrrrly (before the heat) but you can see just how gorgeous morning light is! Thanks for having me out Christy, and I might just take you up on going riding sometime soon! 🙂

Fall is upon us (shortly) – more studio updates!

August 8th, 2012

With fall comes the busiest time of the year for portrait sessions. It also brings the second wave of “busy season” for those of us who do weddings. I’ve taken most of the work that comes my way the past two years – up until I couldn’t schedule any more. With this workload has come […]

 

With fall comes the busiest time of the year for portrait sessions. It also brings the second wave of “busy season” for those of us who do weddings. I’ve taken most of the work that comes my way the past two years – up until I couldn’t schedule any more. With this workload has come 14 hour days, 6 days a week (the 7th being Saturday, which is wedding day and I’m shooting all day!), phone calls and emails at all hours, missed family events, missed time with friends, and a lot of stress. I truly love every minute of what I do and I love my clients equally as much. I’m blessed that my business is so successful and I have so many wonderful clients who support it! But alas, the time has come to cut back and repay those who are near and dear to me (friends, family and my husband) who have sacrificed so much as I’ve started up this business!

We’re headed into fall and I have 14 weddings on the books between now and the middle of November! I will be limiting the number of fall sessions I take so I can keep up with the incredible amount of editing that comes with wedding work. Right now, I have availability for four sessions in September and three in October, beyond what is already booked. Please note that these are for full portrait sessions, I won’t be accepting any mini sessions during that time (unless you already have one booked with me).  I will be offering a day of mini sessions on a Sunday in mid-November after weddings slow, so stay tuned! Also please note that I have NO weekend availability during this time due to my wedding schedule. I have weekday morning and evening times available for these available slots. If you want to know how many sessions I still have available, please check the status at the top of this page (in the turquoise text); I’ll do my best to keep it up to date. If you need a weekend slot, I would be happy to refer you to a photographer who specializes in portrait work and can take you on!

I have new portrait pricing that will be taking effect on August 15th. Sessions will continue to book at current rates until that time.

I will be cutting back on the amount of weddings I accept in 2013, and I’m booking fast! The first half of the year is pretty much booked full at this point, with openings still existing in the fall of 2013 and into the holidays. If you have been thinking of inquiring but holding off, shoot me an email before I am full! I can’t believe how quickly the season has filled.

In addition to my concentration on weddings in 2013 I will be shortly launching a new offshoot of my studio, SDP Boudoir. I’ve been offering boudoir sessions for a while now, but have decided to separate the offering from my main studio site and tailor some packages and offerings to suit brides to be as well as ladies who want an unforgettable gift for their husband, fiance or boyfriend. Stay tuned for a link to the new site once it goes live!

Since I believe that NO blog post should go without an image, here’s one from Ashley and Kris’ wedding, of stunning bride Ashley – their blog highlights will be up tomorrow!
