Orders, orders…

Between wrapping up shoots and getting orders out, I’ve been running around like crazy and have been really lame about blogging. I promise to share what I’ve been working on soon! In the meantime, I did want to share that I will be taking an extra long (and very much needed) winter break from December 20th through January 9th.  I will be out of the studio for this entire time and although I will have internet access, I will be practicing the art of unplugging and will not be checking my e-mail daily. I can guarantee order deliveries by Christmas if they are placed by December 15th. Any orders placed after December 20th will not be fulfilled until the new year.

In other news, I was looking through some personal images for our holiday cards this year and stumbled across a bunch of shots that Pat took and never even told me about! I was struck by how beautiful so many of these images are. He second-shot for me several times this year and I’ve been so blown away by what an amazing eye he has. He started the year off carrying around my old Rebel xt and then moved to a 30D…I think he just might be ready for another upgrade, what do you think? Here are a couple that melted me…

I should keep him around, don’t you think??
