Wow! Jill and Brent

So this post will date us a little bit, but only in a good way! We are so very honored to be a part of this family and have literally watched Jill grow up. Mark has photographed Jill and her family for years from family portraits, senior portraits and Bar Mitzvahs and now a Wedding! We couldn't be happier to be a part of such a great family and we are very humbled to have been able to document your family's history all these years! Nothing makes us happier than watching our families grow right before us. Thank you and Mazal Tov!

The last of traveling...for awhile anyway.

We will be out of the studio April 26-29th speaking and judging at New Hampshire's state print judging and convention. We look forward to seeing some new sites and meeting new people since we have not been to New Hampshire before! This will also be the last of our travels for speaking this year. Any other travel plans will be for out of state weddings or for our International Print Judging in July.

Your Invited...Grand Opening Party!

The Dayton Bridal Connection features over 40 of Dayton and Cincinnati's best wedding specialists under one roof. Brides can browse through vendor showrooms at their leisure or schedule appointments with the specialist of their choice. It is like a bridal show that lasts all year!

Tuesday, April 29th at 5:00pm is the Ribbon Cutting (the Mayor or Riverside will actually be cutting a cake instead of a ribbon). There will be door prizes donated by restaurants, florists, us (of course) and much more. Each bride will also receive a 'Goodie Bag' with gifts and other valuable discounts and information. Please join us!

For more information including directions, visit the Dayton Bridal Connection on-line!

Heart of America

We will be out of the studio April 11-15th while we are judging and speaking at the Heart of America Regional Print Competition and Convention in Iowa. Heart is one of our favorite regionals with lots of great photography and friends!

Counting our Blessings!

The trip to Carlsbad with XXV was awesome in so many ways! Working with the families of Make-A-Wish was phenomenal. Because of medical expenses, many of the families had never had a formal family portrait done.

We turned the hotel into a lab, complete with printing and stretching canvas portraits. On the last day of our stay we delivered a 16x20 canvas to each of the families. Each family's story was inspiring and we were so honored to be a small part of their story.

We should all count our blessings and remember the line from one of my favorite movies, Field of Dreams, "You fail to realize the most significant moments in your life as they are happening."

XXV with the amazing Make-A-Wish Kids!
