OFFICE CLOSED~Thursday Sept 23rd~Wednesday Oct 6th (will update if longer)

Many of you have probably been reading that I have been dealing with some health issues. It has been determined that I need my gall bladder removed. My original plan was to put this off until after the Fall rush but it at a point now where it is intolerable and I can not wait on it any longer. I have had to re-arrange some things and move the date up to the end of September (next week). Any sessions that this would effect have been notified for rescheduling. I am hoping to only be out of commission for 1 week, 2 at the most. If you try to reach me for any reason next week, I will return all phone calls and emails as soon as I possibly can. If you have orders to place, please just email me letting me know you are ready to place your order and I will contact you as soon as I can.
Because this will take me down for awhile, obviously it is going to put me behind in proofing, ordering, etc. Please allow a bit more time for me to get your proofs and orders to you during this time. I am sure you have all noticed I am giving more leeway on extension of galleries to clients right now due to this.
Seniors, please be aware of your yearbook deadline. Several schools deadlines are fast approaching and you need to allow 4-6 weeks after ordering to receive your order.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Obviously there is no good time to have surgery, but this truly is just not a good time! I think this is God’s gentle way of reminding me that I am not in control…. HE is. I have never had surgery before and am a bit scared, so if you could add me to your prayers, it would be greatly appreciated :) Thank you!!

And no post, even this one, would be complete without an image. Recently I had the great pleasure of photographing the Academy of Performing Arts Fall "Ballet For Schools" Program. I love capturing the art of dance through my camera lens. Dancers, once I am on my feet again, I will have images for you from the program :) But I had to share at least 1 for now :)

Also...Thank you so much for all the comments, emails, and private messages I have been getting since first posting this on facebook. I truly appreciate all the well wishes, thoughts, and prayers!! :)
