Pretty Petal Studio - Artistic Portrait and Wedding Photography - Launch of New Website


I have a really good excuse for being a bad blogger and not posting the last couple weeks...I've been working on my new website!  I really wanted to launch it this month and I made it by the hair of my chinny chin chin!  I hope you like it!  With the launch of my new site, I am offering 50% off my session fee if you book now through February 14th.  (You can book for anytime this year.)  

Also new for this year - I will be taking on small intimate weddings!  I am currently partnered with Brian McEntire of B Scott Photography and will continue to work with Brian on big weddings, but if you're planning a smaller scale wedding, I might be the wedding photographer for you!  Take a look at my site and see if our styles match and feel free to contact me for more information on availability and pricing.  

I want to thank all my clients for a wonderful 2011 and here's hoping for an even better 2012!

Pretty Petal Studio - Custom Albums





Most of my clients order a high-res CD of their images after the session and decide to put together their own album using Snapfish, Costco, Shutterfly, etc. While those options are very inexpensive, there is nothing like a quality album from a professional print lab.

 I LOVE this recent album that came in for a client. This particular album is a square 8x8, printed on Art Watercolor paper. Each page (spread) is designed to lay flat with a thick look and feel. It's truly a wonderful presentation of your session.

Fine Art Photography - Photo Excursion Monday

Happy New Year! One of my goals for the year is to start carrying my camera with me wherever I go...every day! I used to do this and the habit fell by the wayside when I had my second son, Finn. But I decided Finn and I can have mini adventures after we drop his older brother Aidan off to school. This series is called, "photography through my car window!" I drive around looking for things that inspire me or strike my fancy. Then I pull over and take a few shots. I was thinking I might post one of my shots daily...to keep myself in line. But you might get bored of that, so I'm going for Photo Excursion Mondays. Let me know what you think!

Oh, and I promise to be a better blogger this year. My word for the year is "vulnerable" and I'm going to try and open up more. (I'm usually a really private person...introvert with savvy extrovert skills!)
