We also did a film strip for the photos on her website. What fun!
This is one of my favorites from the session.
In case you cannot tell from that post - here's why...don't you love the bubbles!
In celebration of our first snowfall of the year (which happened to come on my sweet Bella's fourth birthday), I had a sale - sorry, it's over now. Please keep watching my blog for future discounts and contests!
Looking for a great way to reach many current and future clients? Look no further than postcards!
Thanks, Sarah, for the great compliment on your blog. You are an awesome person to work with and I hope that our business (and Scrabulous) relationships last for a long time!
"Pay It Forward"...what does this mean? It means, if you take advantage of this free download, you need to turn around and do something or give something to someone else...pay the kindness forward to those around you!
If you had seen this gorgeous girl being followed around downtown Springfield by a bunch of photographers, you might have been like the other people that spotted us...trying to figure out why she had a paparazzi of photographers following her...Who was she? She was none other than Emily, our Senior model that Kim lined up for us for our final day of Smootfest 2007. She was awesome. Never complained once and did everything that was asked. Isn't she beautiful?
So, for those of you who don't know, this weekend I spent some time with several great photographers from all over the area. Even though I haven't been doing as much photography as of late, I learned tons of great stuff and cannot wait to incorporate it into future photography sessions. Thanks everyone for sharing your techniques, knowledge and talent with everyone, I cannot wait for Smootfest 2008! Thanks, Kim, for putting up with all of us and for everything you do!
Also, a special thanks to Jana for a wonderful dinner and for showing us all the great things that have come out and are coming out! Hope everyone had a safe trip home and gets rested up...see you next year!
Until then, hope you all have a great weekend!

After finding out a bit more about Rachel and her business, we worked on a few concepts. Here's the one she ended up deciding to use.
If you're in the area of Brunswick Hills, Ohio, give Rachel a call to schedule an appointment 440.724.9569.
Good luck with your business!
I would so buy these on cd!
Michelle...just wanted to say thanks for giving me a shot in doing your logo design.
It was fun! Good luck with your biz!
Several people have contacted me to design a logo for them for full price, but in reality, they already have one or more ideas they liked from playing themselves - but the designs just weren't quite "there".
Some of my clients already have a logo that they love, but it needs to be "freshened up" a bit. Sometimes all that's needed is a fresh pair of eyes and a bit of tweaking to make the logo design perfect and so I've added the "logo tweak" to the services I offer.
logo tweak ~ $60
Kristin had her logo in mind, but wasn't sure it was "complete". She was thinking it needed something, just wasn't sure what.
And with some minor adjustments:
That's a tweak, nothing major, just enough to give it some "pop"!
Stacey Steel contacted me about designing a logo for her business, Steel (a play on her last name, ha ha) the Moment Photography. After a few tries, we finally narrowed it down to this one.
"I recently came across your work and love what I saw. I am starting a business in Chicago as a children's contemporary portrait photographer, and wonder if you would be able to help me create a logo? I have been looking forever for someone to create my vision of a sleek, sophisticated and timeless logo (to be used for website, business cards, stationary, etc) but have yet to find exactly what I am looking for."
So, after finding out a bit more of what she was looking for in a logo, we finalized her logo today and in her words, "...it is p e r f e c t!..."
Without further ado, here's the winning logo:
If you're in the Chicago area and looking for a photographer for your kiddos, be sure to give Kia Hinz a call! 312.492.6777 or 773.510.0821

The lines in Hebrew read: "A quiet year, a beautiful year, a tranquil year. A year of peace, a year of dreams and love." The translation was so beautiful that I felt I had to share it...hmmmm...maybe I'll have make another card that says that in English as well.
