Where has the time gone? I just looked at my blog and saw that it has been over a year since I posted anything. So what have I been doing?
In the summer of 2011 we put an addition on the back of our house that included a new studio for me. A project that was to take 3 weeks, took almost 6 months. I was the one who had to deal with the contractors and everything else that is involved in building.
As we were nearing the end of the initial construction, I had someone who was interested in my studio space, so more had to be done and November 1st, 2012, I moved my studio back to the house.
Although it had been nice having the studio out of the house (for 9+ yrs it had been in my front living room.), it is nice being back home and having a dedicated studio at home with a private entrance.
One thing I have noticed, is that a lot of people like outdoor portraits. Even though I have a studio, I can still do outdoors. We can go to the park, downtown or your place if that is what you want.
PHOTO BOOTH - I had had several inquiries about whether I had a photo booth, for wedding receptions in 2011. I didn't, but in August of 2011 I took a look into what was involved and decided that since I already had a lot of the equipment need, why not. So the first booth was built by Oct. of 2011. I eventually added a 2nd and 3rd.
What is a Photo Booth? Ours is an enclosed booth that allows the guests to go in, with or without props and have a series of 3-4 images taken. They are then printed out on a 2x6 photo strip. The guests receive one as a party favor and another copy is put in a Memory Book where the guests can write a greeting to the bride and groom.
Photo Booths can be used for other events besides wedding receptions. We have done a few fundraisers, post proms, birthdays or corporate events.
Photo Booths are one of the hottest trends for wedding receptions and a new trend that is just hitting the area is Flip Books.
A Flip Book is a 7 second video clip that is then converted into a series of images, stapled together to create a book, and when you "Flip" the pages, you see the motion.
The photo booth and flip book are all about having fun and creating lasting memories.
2011 and 2012 have been fun years for me. I am looking forward to 2013 and seeing what is in-store for me. I hope that I can get more things posted on this blog and Facebook in 2013 so you can see what I am up to.
If you have been a client of mine in the past, I hope to see you again in the future.
If we have never met, I hope we can meet sometime in the future and that I can create some memories for you to share.
