Hop to it...get ready...only a few days away...
Your family, friends and neighbors are "Cheering" you on to be ready for the Holidays. At this time of year I put the Holiday music on, light the tree do some baking and get my shopping done. I love to see the holiday hustle and bustle of all of you out doing your own thing. I love meeting with our very important clients from the past and coming future either while shopping, dining out or even in our festive studio or meeting room. You see, all of you are very important to us and we want to thank you for your continued support for the past year, and want to "cheer" you onto to getting that family portrait done this season (if all are home now) or next summer/fall. We are looking forward to photographing that High School Senior for 2010 sometime this next summer or early fall. And don't forget that all important date-the wedding of your friend, relative or neighbor...keep us in mind!

This fine young lady was a competitior this past Saturday at a Karate Tournament. She was one of many who ended up with awards to be proud of. Many of the children and young adults that were competetors should be proud of themself with or without awards. To watch them compete was just amazing with the way they carried themselves, acted amoungst others, treated others, and to just be out in the middle of an arena in front of many spectators was something these competetors should be proud of. We enjoy photograping these competetors. If you would like to see some action shots, go to our web site and click on the blue Gallery button. The password is karate (all lower case letters). Enjoy.

Havin Fun

These girls were just "hangin out" at our last family session (on location). They were fun to photograph together, as sisters. You see, at a family session, we will also incorporate images of just the kids together, parents together, parent with child(ren), as everyone of the images we create for the family mean something special-as special as a large group photo is. We typically spend an hour or more with a family creating different images to choose from. We are NOT your "quick studio" where a background is pulled down, and you're out of the studio in 15 minutes. We want to become your friend, and not just another "number" in the phone book that can get your photo done, printed out in minutes and out the door you go. We take pride in our work, and take the time to create something special for you and your family. Call us when you're ready to become our "friend". 763-295-2727. We'll take time to create "Magic" for you and your family!

Strong Hearts

Been there, done that. This young couple will be separated for months. When we got married, we were separated by the service-seeing each other only 3 months out of the first 2 years we were married. We did not have email, cell phones and the convenience of keeping in touch...only with "love letters", and then they would come in batches of 5 after a whole 2 weeks. This couple were married only an hour after having their session completed by us at the studio. They will have a wonderful life keeping in touch with other via the internet, and cell phone. We wish them a wonderful life together and apart. We appreciate the young men and women of our country.
