Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Hey everyone! It looks like our last blog post was all the way back in October! And all of a sudden, we are a week away from Christmas - when did that happen??

Things at the studio have been keeping Audrey & I both so swamped! Trying to get everything done for Christmas deadlines has been insane. We thank you all though for your patience with us and understanding as we try to keep up with everything. As most of you know, Audrey's husband is deployed, but Audrey is getting to go see him right after Christmas! We are so excited for her, but that means she will be gone for about 2 weeks into the new year. Things will definitely be slowing down once Christmas comes, but we will essentially be "closed" for sessions and portrait order date appointments while she is gone. I will still be in the office answering phone and emails, so if anything needs picked up that you might have forgotten about, don't fret!

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Is Moving REALLY the Most Stressful Time in Your Life??

Hey y'all!

Just a friendly reminder that our office will temporarily be out of commision all of next week for us to move studios! We will be checking email periodically throughout the week, and our phone service will be transferred to the new place Monday morning. However, we will mostly be focusing on packing up our whole studio where it's at now, moving it, unpacking in the new studio, and then cleaning the old one! Having said that, if you need something that cannot wait until the last week of October when we are up and running again, please let us know before about 2:30 tomorrow, Friday the 17th, as we are leaving at that time for a session that will last the rest of the evening.

 

**High School Seniors : Please keep in mind this will not affect us getting your yearbook images turned in on time for you! Please check with your school's yearbook coordinater the day prior to your due date to double check that they received it from us. If not, let us know so we can get it taken care of for you.

**All other clients : If you have orders pending, we will still be getting deliveries from our labs while in the process of moving, so don't worry about orders getting sent back to the lab. We will be letting clients who get orders next week know when they are ready for pick up soon after they are delivered!

 

We can't wait for next week to fly by to see the whole studio put together, and to see what you all think of the changes :)

Emergency Surgery, Drywall, & Paint - Oh My!

Hey all! Have some of you been wondering why you have been having your Portrait Order Date appointments with Audrey, or her daughter Lauren, instead of with myself? Well, there's a reason for that.

Unexpectadly last week, I was having what I thought were complications from an infection and went to the ER Wednesday night. Thursday morning, I had a doctor's appointment lined up, and during that appointment, was told I needed emergency surgery...that day! That threw me through a loop! Needless to say, I have been spending the last week recovering from that surgery, so my awesome boss and Lauren were both doing a GREAT job holding down the fort for me and handling things without me while I was gone, including taking over for me with some of your sales appointments. I was really worried about having to push some of those back, but couldn't due to yearbook deadlines for our High School Seniors, so I'm really glad to have a good support team here at work to cover for me :) We really appreciate everyone for being understanding and patient with us while we've had our fair share of medical trials this year.

Today was my first day back at work - exactly one week post surgery. I have been moving really slow still, but am excited to be back! Looking forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks for sessions, more Portrait Order Dates, and to see the new studio, which is really making progress! Drywall and paint are all done, and it's really coming together. We will continue to keep you all posted on that progress and let you know when we definitely move later this month. Talk to y'all soon :)

Goodbye to the Old, Hello to the New!

Hi everyone! Sorry it's taken so long to give you an update - we have been SOOOO busy with seniors lately!

However, that hasn't stopped us from progressing at the new studio. They are putting up the drywall this week, and then things should be finished up not long after that. We are hoping to be all moved in by middle to end of October. Having said that, we have blocked out about a week in our schedule (October 22-26th) to actually physically move. We are so busy these days, we are having to push booking sessions out until the week before we move right now, so if you need to schedule a session, call us soon so we can be sure to get you in!

If you have anything scheduled in the coming weeks, please keep in mind we are still at the old studio on Simpson St.

Let us know what you have all been up to :) We want to see those first day of school pictures!

High School Seniors!

Hey everyone! We have been pretty busy around here lately, as we are gearing up for High School Senior season in full swing!

Audrey has been out of town for the last week in North Carolina photographing a family member's wedding, but things haven't stopped here! We are jam packed with sessions for the next few weeks, so if you need your senior portraits, give us a call soon! We don't have any availability until middle of August right now, so don't miss out on your chance to work with the most sought-after photographer in North Denver!

 

We look forward to hearing from you :)

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.
