Archive for December, 2008

I have been getting a lot of calls for sessions lately, and I thought I’d just post a reminder on my blog for those who didn’t know…

I am currently on maternity leave… enjoying every minute with this little guy…

I am planning to take sessions again in January 2009, and I have a waiting list for those who have requested sessions once I am back to work. If you’d like to be placed on the wait list, please give me a call or email me. If you are expecting, newborns have highest priority on the list because I like to photograph them within the first 2 weeks of life, so please let me know in advance that you’d like a session with me!

My friend Melissa blog tagged me, and figured I’d use what precious little time I had during Parker’s nap to fill this out… cleaning the house can wait, LOL!
