Another Cutie Has Earned His Stripe!

Where else could you find chubby cheeks like these? Only in Memphis, of course! hahahha Well, this cutie has earned his 1 Year Old Stripe! He's such a good baby. It was a hoot working with. Once again, I had to pull out the Advil. lolol I must get into better shape than what I am. Good grief. No one year old kid should wear me out like that. hahahahha

Anyway, thanks mom for letting me follow your little man for the past year. It's been a blast!

They're Making Me Do it!

Wow...for the past three years I have refused to photograph weddings. Yeah, I've had a friend or two that wanted me to do theirs at an ultra cheap rate and I did it. There have been a few times that I was a second shooter and even a time I was the fourth shooter. I've even taken classes with great masters on shooting weddings...TWICE! But I still refuse to be the responsible one for a wedding. That's a scary thought! Me? The whole wedding? Not just the candids of the function? The whoooooooooooole wedding? The whole thought of it makes me shudder! lololol

So I have this one person that begged and begged because she feared that "Uncle Lenny" was going to take over the whole photography end of her wedding. Sad to say I declined her offer to pay me whatever price I wanted. No way...uh uhnnn! Ever since then it has bugged me (i.e. hubby has been nagging that I missed out on a great opportunity to make a great deal of $$$!!! hahahahaha) that I didn't take her up on her offer.

Once again, I have been offered a chance to photograph a wedding. I thought about it and was like "totally, yeah!" So I got my contract together. Worded it enough to be up front, but not scary. (BTW...the contract looks soooo good! hee hee hee. I'm such a geek. lololol) Presented it to the bride and badda bing badda boom! It's done! Wooo hooo!

I have decided to only have one package one base price. This one package will cover up to "x" amount of hours, a 10x10 20 page leather flush mount bride's album, a 5x5 20 page hard cover coffee table book for bragging, 50 folded 4x5 custom thank you cards, engagement session and an online gallery for 90 days. Anything else that the bride may want can be added à la carte. The base price is non-negotiable. It is what it is. So if the bride decides that she doesn't want the thank you cards, it will not be deducted from the base price. However, if the bride does not want the thank you cards, but instead would like to have 10 4x5 prints, that can be done.

So, what do you think? Have I completely lost my mind? Will I live to regret this decision? Let me know what you think!

Beautiful Babies Come From Memphis!

Okay, I have a baby planner and I just absolutely undoubtedly love to photograph! Baby "S" is the cutest! She was such a happy baby. She gave me a workout! I actually had to break out the Advil for the ole knees and back when I was done. hahahaha She was such a joy and I can't say enough great things about her. If her mom wanted me to photograph her everyday, I would definitely do it. It was such a fun session. I get to follow her milestones for the next few months. Yaaaay me! Can't wait till our next session. Thank you mom for allowing me the chance to capture one of the Mid-South's most beautiful babies! ;-)

1 is Such a Magical Number!

Wow! Who'd-a-thunk-it! This sweet little baby that would always smile and giggle for me when photographing her would turn out and be such an active chubby chunky that didn't want to have anything to do with me! lololol Ahhhhh...to be one year old again! lololol

This is the same baby that's my avatar in the upper right corner of my blog. She didn't care for me much today. Even after the gold fish crackers, the noise makers and my daughter helping me to make her laugh. The only time she felt comfortable was while she was with her brother or holding on to mom's hand.

But that's okay, I think I got some really cute ones. This is a sneak peek for Lady A's mom. More to come as soon as I get your gallery up and running! Enjoy!

And MAN! Don't you love that orange! I'm so thinking about changing my biz's colors! :-)
