As I scheduled a lunch appointment for Monday, I realized that Monday is also Canadian Thanksgiving. That means that Halloween is just around the corner, then Veterans Day (in the US)/Remembrance Day (in Canada), American Thanksgiving and Christmas – I still can’t believe it is October! I don’t know where this year has gone. I had such big plans to revamp our websites and hire someone to do some of our post-processing, but of course none of that has happened. Not that I’m complaining – I am extremely grateful that we have been so busy this year and we are thankful to all of our wonderful clients!
This is also the start of the season for giving and we always like to do a few charitable events during the holiday season. This year we have decided to donate our services to a national non-profit organization for their multi-day event in December. We are super excited about it and can’t wait to have a few more details to share with everyone.
Before we get to December, however, we have all the fall weddings (very popular here in Texas) and a lot of corporate events. We started off the Fall of 2009 with a few weddings and events, a bunch of engagement sessions and bridal sessions and our first ever maternity session. Last weekend we did a fun event at Big League Dreams for XTO Energy employees and their families and it included batting coaches (we printed baseball cards, of course) and elephants! All in the rain!!! I love working for myself, but a small part of me is always intrigued when we do these amazing corporate parties and we see how well some companies treat their employees.
Below are a few photos from our event last Saturday (sorry, no model releases so just a few pics of people working the event). Thanks to Howard, Patty, Ashley & Linda for stepping up last minute to help us out!
