Because it's fall I've been busy on the small business side. I am so grateful. First up, the annual Alpha Omicron Pi Christmas card photo. I love the new location of the football stadium. Everyone cooperated and it was a breeze, which is good because I had a shoot to run to right afterwards...
So, this shoot was actually from the summer, but I forgot to share it! A design and staging company asked me to capture a beautiful home for them in June. I couldn't believe how elegant the space was. The owners were every bit as lovely, too. I am still wishing I would open my bedroom door and this very bed would appear. It was a dream shoot, especially since they sent a stylist to assist me. It made the shoot a breeze! The good people at Houzz picked these images up and you can see a few more in their galleries here.
A fellow AOPi and actual alumni adviser from my years in the house, Courtney, contacted me about doing some photos out at a pretty park. This woman is incredible. She served and was present countless hours as an adviser. She is also a miracle, Courtney has been through quite a lot in the past few years. It was a treat to take her family photos.
A decor boutique in Edina needed some new interior photos. I had fun going through all of their vignettes and hiding price tags. You better believe I want that giant magnifying glass! Those tufted dining chairs aren't bad, either!
In September my boss was married. As you all know, weddings aren't usually my thing, but this was a special circumstance and I was happy to do it. Let me just say, if every bride and groom were like this I would photograph more nuptials! The venue, out at a golf course on a perfect fall evening couldn't of been better!
Saving the best for last... graphic designer Heather and I worked together to create this new logo for me. I love it, and I love how it works with my style. I wanted something depicting a pearl inside of an oyster in an art deco fashion. I think she nailed it! It will be an exciting day when my new cards and other marketting paraphanelia come in the mail.
All in all a great season for photography! I'm really looking forward to seeing what winter holds. In every step of the way I've been grateful to God. I've learned so much in the past year about pacing, doing things my unique way and the important of updated equitment! I can't wait to see what I discover next.
