Blog 6: 2016 Begins with a Bang! And a Cough...

2016 started out with a bang! It’s been pretty crazy though we’re only 6 days in. We responsibly stayed home on New Year’s Eve just eating some yummy foods, watching t.v., and playing with fireworks (completely legal here until between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m.)! We had a great time making our own little photo booth and enjoying each others’ company, but the rest of the week has been a bit rough. We had some large unexpected expenses, some unexpected house mishaps, Jenny was sick all week, and now Jason’s sick. Hopefully the cycle of getting each other sick will die down, but for now we’ll keep making soups, veggies, and medicate to keep it at bay.  

Another positive of this past week is that there was finally some real snowfall again.  We got over five inches in one day, and spent some time photographing the snow and snowflakes.  (This most likely did not aide in our whole "not getting sick" agenda).

Jason also took the time to try out a couple of "alternative printing" techniques throughout the week.  We are always looking to expand the types of photographic services we can offer our clients, so we love testing out new things.  Here are a couple of test prints of Jenny, made using old style photographic practices.

All that fun stuff aside, we’ve gotten 4 marketing materials finished for our upcoming show, have some more photos to print, and have been pretty productive as usual. We’ve gotten all of our photo orders out to our clients this week and are excited to get going on our other clients’ projects! On top of that, we have a big wedding expo we’ll be at this weekend, so if you’re engaged (or know someone who is) and are in the Southwest Michigan, Northern Indiana, or Chicago areas please join us this Sunday (January 10th) in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the Wings Arena! More information can be found at:


Anyone who stops by our booth at the Bridal Show will be entered to win a free engagement session!  We'll also have a few different items that we are handing out,  so you don't want to miss this opportunity.

We also want to take quick breath in the midst of a crazy week to tell you we are thankful for your support, really appreciate you reading these, and are thankful to the utmost for: anyone who has hired us (paid) to photograph for you, anyone who has bought our art, and anyone who has taught us what we know. We know self-employment is constant work, but we’re happy to do so and keep a thankful spirit about our past, current, and future clients. Without you all we would not be able to do what we love for a living. Thank you.
