Terribly Sad News

As many of you may know if you have been keeping up to date with our blog, Audrey's husband Doug deployed to Bosnia this last Friday the 27th. Although this is hard enough in itself for Audrey and her family, what you all may not know is that the week before that, one of Audrey's very best friends unexpectedly lost her baby girl to SIDS.

SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - which means it's sudden, unexpected, and no one knows what causes it. Unfortunately, Miss Ava Jean was a victim, and the family is remembering her short life this morning. She was only about 6 weeks old and you can imagine the toll it's taking on everyone who knew her and her family.

We are asking you all to keep this family in your thoughts and prayers during this horrible trying time, as well as Audrey and her family. With unexpected surgery, her husband deploying for a year, and her dear friend suffering this tremendous loss, it is a lot to deal with.

 

This is an image Audrey's daughter Lauren put together for the family. Rest in Peace Miss Ava Jean.

What We've Been Up To!

Hey y'all!

Just wanted to give you a long overdue update on the happenings of Audrey Imfeld Photography!

As many of you may remember from my last post, Doug is set to deploy with the Army to Bosnia for about a year. He was originally scheduled to deploy June 10th, but his orders changed, and now he doesn't leave until June 27th, but he is away on training this whole week. We are keeping him in our thoughts and prayers to stay safe and come home to Audrey soon!

Audrey's surgery itself went really well, and although the cyst they found was larger than they thought, it still turned out to be benign, so that is great news! Her recovery is going really well, she started feeling a lot better, a lot sooner than she originally suspected.  so we have been working really hard lately with sessions and getting caught up with everyone to make up for the time we lost while Audrey was taking care of herself!

Things with the remodel of the new studio are somewhat at a standstill right now as we are waiting on permits and such from the city before we can proceed. Nevertheless, we are still hoping to have it all done and ready to move by October, if not sometime sooner sometime in September!

 

Thank you all for your patience while it took me so long to update you all, but please stay tuned for everything else :)

Recovering!

Hello everyone!

So sorry it's taken me so long to update you all, but Audrey's surgery went really well, and now she is recovering! Although she is technically still on "surgical leave," she somehow made it in to the studio this morning, for just a little bit, to get caught up on a few things. She is not 100% just yet, but is on her way!

While we are waiting for her to fully recover, I am getting started on getting things ready for the big studio move! That means going through everything we haven't used in years to get ready to sell it so we don't have so much to move later on in the year!

We are keeping busy and in high hopes around here!

 

We hope you all are enjoying this LOVELY weather :)

Surgery, Deployment, AND Running a Studio!

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to update you on a few things going to be happening around the studio very soon:

 

Last week, Audrey went in for a routine dr. appointment and they found a golf ball-sized cyst on one of her ovaries. While it is not cancerous (thank goodness!), they do want to remove it, along with a few other things, immediately! She will be going in for emergency surgery tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning. Because of this type of surgery, and what she does for a living, she will unfortunately be out of commission for 2-4 weeks.

To top THAT off, she also found out very recently that her husband Doug will be deploying with the Army to Bosnia for a year, and will be leaving Colorado in early June, during week 3 of Audrey's recovery. Although the deployment is not to a combat zone, it is a big change for her and her family right now.

We are just starting to get into our busy season with family sessions, as well as high school seniors, so we really appreciate all of your patience and understanding in needing to reschedule everything for the next month - which let me tell you, is not easy with everyone we had scheduled! Please hang in there with us as we get through this hurdle, and we will keep you posted on everything!

Your thoughts and prayers are all appreciated as Audrey goes through surgery and her husband's deployment, and me running shop for a bit!

 

Thanks for reading :)

With the Season Change, Comes a STUDIO Change!

Did you see on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook that we got the new windows in for the new studio we are building?!

That's right! We are building a new studio at Audrey's house, where many of you have had your sessions done with the mountains and horses, tire swing, hammock, and all of the other fun things she has, just right in her backyard! I first came to know Audrey when she did my senior pictures a LONG time ago (yikes, am I aging myself...or her?! Sorry boss!), and I had them done at her house, even way back then!

We decided that building a new studio at her property was the best thing for our studio at the time, because Audrey spends most of her time there anyways, like I said, having done many of your sessions there, so since our lease is almost up at this building, we just decided to go for it! It is a little bittersweet, as we have been at this building for 6, almost 7, years, so it's become almost like a member of the AIP staff. With all things though, change is inevitable, but we hope this time, that it is for the better! And we hope you all agree :)

We are hoping to have it done by October, so keep a look out for updates on that!

Have a great weekend :)

So Sorry...

...We haven't been keeping up with the blog as much lately. We have really tried to create a presence for our studio on Instagram and Twitter lately! We will do a better job of keeping up to date with facebook, instagram, twitter, AND the blog! Please let us know of any suggestions you may have for us!

 

Thanks so much for being patient with us while we work on all these changes :)
