I have been WAY too busy to even blog! Okay so for all of you newbies.. MMP has a new plan!

AS OF 11/1 no apts after 5... Daylight savings took that time away :(

Lil Sprout- has now changed! It used to be age required for this (2-4 years) but now its "one year" plan! This can be for any child/teen/family (up to 4) for one year, (5 sessions included and 50.00 print credit for each session)! That is a $625.00 value for 300.00!

I created this to fit clients in that had used me once but then wanted to continue using me every couple of months and also for 6 month olds that miss out on the Green Bean (first year) so they actually can start their plan at any age! If you have had one session with me and want to add this plan, you can purchase this plan for 225.00 and have 4 sessions left to jump on in! If you are coming from pean n pod plan, then you can jump in at a reduced price aswell!

I am so booked and have so many rainouts that Im going through my dates and Im going to fit in as many bookings as possible to fit my overflow and rainouts and additonal inquired sessions! So I have added new dates to each day i was booked and have allowed for overflow bookings to book! See below a list of dates from Nov-Dec 2009 that are booked. I have left blank the dates that are available that I have added. These are listed today at 4:30 and it is first come first serve! After that I will not take anymore bookings till 2010!

Im already booked for March, April, May and June for Weddings in 2010! If you are looking for a photograph adn considering me, please get with me asap since I am only taking 2 per month at most! I cant wait till wedding season is here!!!

Alot of sessions request are for family portraits/children portraits for christmas cards. So I declare the months of September-November Free pack of Christmas card month!

Okay so that means for your traditional session you will recieve 20 free 4x6 Christmas cards of the design of your choice! I have tons and tons of designs and will be posting them soon. I will only be shooting these on Saturday afternoons so that means only 2 a saturday since I am already booked up till the end of October with other sessions throughout the weekend.

So.. Lets recap..

Normal Session fee, 2 hour shooting in the streets or field shots (choose one location of your choice) shots of family and individual shots and get one free set of 4x6 christmas cards of your choice! This is a full session not a mini session so u pay more but get more shots and way more time!

No worries if you hear a man answering, just my sweet husband taking my calls since my iphone is smashed to pieces and dosnt work. Since this is my fifth iphone in 3 years, I am no officially changing to a blackberry! I feel a little less cooler but atleast my clients will reach me and I wont have any missed sessions and no missed calls!! I think thats a win win situations! I appologize if you havnt been able to get me this week.. no phone = no contact so always e-mail me.. but of course my computer had 10 trojan viruses and is now in my car to be looked at.. really could anything get worse? No worries clients, your portraits are always stored on my detatchable harddrive and online. :) Okay so this is my photograph for today:

Its Time again for Fall Mini Sessions!


One day only !

This year I will be shooting Fall/Christmas mini-Sessions in downtown Brandon on September 12.

For $25, you get:

-10 minute session

-(2) 5x7’s

- a set of wallets (8).

You will also have the option to order additional prints!

If you refer a friend who books a session, and they mention your name, you get an additional 5x7 as a "print thank you"!

I will be shooting from 10-11:00 and 2-6:00.

Please email or call to reserve your 10 minute session.

First come first serve! Up to 4 subjects per session and remember only 10 min allowed!!

Please plan to arrive early, to allow you time to get the children out of the car, and get to the photo location.

Each session will only be allowed 10 minutes. If you are 5 minutes late, then you get a 5 minute session. We have to do our best to stay on schedule, to make it fair for everyone.

Due to the location, your child will need to be able to sit on his own, unless you plan to be in the photo holding him.

This is a great time to get photos for Christmas Cards, which we’ll be posting soon!

Dont forget to pass this along for free portraits if your friends book and have their session!! I will announce once my sessions are completely booked up!

Here are a couple of events that MMP is involved in that you can participate in and help us keep the fight up against domestic violence!!

The first is a fundraiser that I will try to do every year with my own talents to help raise money for Heather's T.R.E.E. I am very involved in this charity and will continue to give donations each year to help this little non profit that Heather's Mother has began and watch it grow into a full blown Tree of Life!

The second is an event at Hal Mals that is thrown by the Jackson Free Press each year and I was lucky enough to get involved in last year. I go to represent Heather's T.R.E.E. To help them raise money by holding a "photo booth" at the event to raise money for the JFP to donate towards this cause! I love the JFP and am grateful for their continued intrest in helping women in MS.

Wedding Season is here!!

Brides are already slamming me with dates! I am elated that they haven chosen my art of photography over so many others! I will do my best to make their day last forever in portraits! Six years ago, me and my husband eloped, we couldnt wait to get married ;!!) So I think that is why I love covering weddings and making sure I capture each detail of every wedding I cover! I am also looking at getting new equipment soon, which the ones I have are fantastic but there are always better and bigger things out there!! Hope everyone had a great holiday!
