As I have spoken about in previous posts, Bill has decided to work on two certifications this year and and he has already earned his CPC, so the next one is the CPP (certified professional photographer). Well, he finally received his results for the exam portion and he PASSED! YAY!!!!! He’s halfway there, just the portfolio submission left to do. Keep up the good work, sweetie… you have inspired me to start studying for the exam.
I hope everyone had a good 4th of July weekend. We had a great turnout at our BBQ and everyone had fun – I think Bill is already planning next year’s party. I was a little sad that my brother Dave couldn’t make it from Canada – I guess he will have to wait until next year to experience a 4th of July party. For those of you who don’t know, I am from Canada and moved to Texas almost 6 years ago. My brother, Dave, has decided that he loves visiting Texas and he may want to move here one day. The only problem is he has never experienced a Texas summer. Growing up in northern Canada does not prepare you well for the Texas summer heat, so I was hoping he could make it down this year… I guess we will have to wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas to see him again.
On a business note, I am ordering our first sample albums from a new album company that we are very excited about. They offer both flush mount albums as well as coffee table books and the coolest thing is that they offer a Metal Cameo for their covers. The metal cameos give a unique and luxurious look to the albums, we can’t wait to see our sample albums. We should have them in plenty of time for the next Star Telegram Bridal Show (August 17), so come by our booth to check it out!
I am also posting a few of our fave photos from an engagement shoot last week… I know I said I wasn’t going to post many of our client’s images, but Niki & Jason were fantastic to work with and they have already previewed their images. PLUS, Jason is a fellow photographer so I don’t think he will mind too much :-). Can’t wait for the wedding at the end of the month, it should be a blast! To see their guest signature book, go to our wedding website and click on “CLIENTS” in the bottom right corner, then enter “engage” as the password.
Niki & Jason liked the grunge look, so we found this great exposed brick wall to use as a backdrop.
I am on a lens flare kick right now (real, not photoshopped)
