Up and Coming

Now that it’s Sunday evening, the USA Hockey team won Silver, the closing ceremonies are about to begin, and the proofs from yesterday’s shoot are uploaded, now I can get down to some more business.

First, I would like to give a shout out to Karen & Jeff, who were kind enough to allow me to shoot their portraits that are commemorating the renewal of their vows for their 25th Wedding Anniversary.  Congratulations, you two, and thank you for allowing me to capture your memories! (Some of their proofs are shown here.)

Wall 2 Wall Studios has gone through some transition since the first of the year.  We’ve upgraded our hardware, which also required software upgrades, as well, and are just tickled with the results.

We are also proud to announce that Wall 2 Wall Photography will be working with the Wayne Memorial Hospital Relay for Life Team this spring.  We are planning a portrait shoot.  Tickets will be $15 and are good for a shoot and an 8x10 print.  All proceeds are going to the Relay for Life, and a portion of reorders, enlargements, or packages will also be going to the Relay Team.  Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

A “Social Networking” portrait shoot is also in the works.  Just about everyone’s got a Face Book, Linked-In, or My Space page these days, and most people want to put up a good image of themselves.  We will be offering a special package of 1, 2, or 3 web ready shots for a fraction of our regular pricing.  Sitting fees will be waived for this one day only event.  We’ll post more information as it is available and hope that you will call us for your social networking needs.

Don’t forget that Senior Portrait Season is upon us!  Check out our online portfolio at the Wall 2 Wall web site to see some of our Senior Portrait offerings!

Until next time….

I Know, I Know…How Slack Am I?

Yes, I am aware that the last time I blogged was in August of 2009.  I had a very full Autumn, and happy that I don’t have to go through much of that again.

The plusses? My eldest son came home for a surprise visit and stayed for an entire week!  Christmas and the holidays.  A very serious increase in portrait and commercial work.

The not so greats?  Illness. Husband’s inability to return to work after major back surgery.  The loss of a beloved pet.  Increased responsibilities at the day job which fill more than 40 hours weekly in many instances.

However, with all of the drama, the ups and the downs, I learned some things, discovered others, and can’t wait to share with all of you. :)

More to come!
