Unlike last month, the weather was on our side for April’s JAX SMUG meeting. I picked Jeff Jochum up from the airport and to introduce him to one of our local monthly shoot outs we headed over to meet Faythe Mesic and the models at Evergreen Cemetery. As strange as it sounds…what an incredible place to shoot! The buildings and textures available were just inspiring. I wish that we could have stayed longer to shoot a few other models but I was thrilled with these few frames that I was able to capture. This months them was “7 Sins” and it was quite eccentric and exciting! There were snakes, birds, alligators, a wolf…crazy, huh?

I have been holding this in for twelve days just waiting for the chance to spill it! So many of you have been so incredibly kind and have truly prayed and cared about my clients. Believe me when I say that I have passed along all of your well wishes and thoughts to Eric and Christina. They have been so blessed by your compassion for them and their darling daughter Lucy. They thank you and I thank you!
Normally photographers hate to be on the other side of the camera. I am actually the exact opposite. For the longest time I lived on the other side of the camera. In fact, I dreamed of being a model from the time that I was a little girl. As you can tell…that didn’t exactly pan out for me. Recently I got some news that sent me over the moon (I promise that I will share the details soon). I needed some current images of myself and the simple fact was I didn’t have any. So, I called on my friend and fantastic wedding photographer Ron Wilson for a photo shoot exchange.
As many of you know, I had the distinct honor of speaking in the SmugMug booth at WPPI this year. When initially asked I feverishly pondered what I would talk about? And then the simple thought occurred to me…Investing In Your Clients. This is the backbone of my personal business structure. Something that comes natural to me and would be easy for me to speak about. Considering the fact that I do not advertise…I depend on my clients to refer me out to their inner circles. If at any point I chose not to whole heartedly invest in each and every one of my clients why in the world would I expect them to invest in me? I wouldn’t. Period.
