Fall Special!

Yes, that's right it is that time again!

Can you believe it is already fall? Seems like yesterday we were heading to the pool and buying new flip flops.

Although it still feels like summer, fall is here. That means it is time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays!

I know, I said it.... The holidays are coming. Its hard to think about gifts and Christmas cards when it still feels like summer, but it is time to start making plans. Every year it seems to sneak up on me!

So! Book your appointment for fall photos now! I have
2 exciting locations to choose from this year, and 3 promotional dates currently available. Act quick, though because they will fill up fast!

I will once again have a wide range of Christmas Card styles to offer, as well as specials on print pricing for those of you who take part in the fall promotion!

If you have any questions feel free to ask. You can reach me best by email at I will give you the details on locations and times available!

Frame special!

Isn't she beautiful!?

I know, it's hard to take your eyes off the adorable redhead in this portrait.

However, the focus of this post is not my sweet niece, Lilly, but the frame she is in.

Every now and then I get special rates from my suppliers, which I then like to pass on to you! This is one of those great deals!

This solid wood frame is size 11x14. It is a beautiful bronze/brown color with gold leaf trim, but I can get them in solid colors as well! Obviously they look nice with a color portrait, but would also be stunning with a black and white portrait!

Normally this frame would cost somewhere in the range of $60, but I am offering them for $45! So get in touch with me and grab one while they last!

To make the deal even sweeter, I will give my customers 10% off the cost of an 11x14 portrait for each of these frames you buy! Even better than one is a pair, right?

Photo for the day - or two...

Well, it has been a while so I figured I would try to get a photo of the day posted. Since it has been so long I may as well post 2!

This is Brittany. I had the pleasure of photographing her wedding this past May. Isn't she beautiful!

In case I have not mentioned it before I have a business partner that I shoot weddings with, Angie Davis. We discovered, after some time shooting weddings by ourselves, that it goes much more smoothly when there are 2 of us! Plus, we have very similar photography styles!

So, a few years ago, we decid
ed to give it a try.

Wow! What a difference!
It was at that point Fisher Davis Weddings was created! We have found that it is no longer just a job, but truly something we enjoy doing! We work reall
y well together, and that is certainly the best part! Imagine getting to go to work for a few (or 8) hours with your friend? It actually makes it fun!
Stay tuned, I am working on getting a Facebook page established with some of our work, etc. Plus, we will have special rewards for those followers who refer a bride, who books us for their wedding!

Where were you?

Just Me and My Life

Today's Friday Fives is going to be a little bit different. As usual, I like to link up to Beth's blog for the fun it brings on Fridays. Today's will be more serious.

Sometimes it takes the serious stuff to make us really appreciate all the fun.

There are several dates in history to which people will say "Where were you when...." Some of them are in my lifetime, many are not. I remember where I was when Princess Diana got married, and when she died. I remember the Pan-Am Lockarbie bombing. However, I was not here yet to remember the Kennedy assassination, Pearl Harbor, the end of WWII, etc.

So, the big day in history that will forever stand out in my memory is September 11, 2001. I remember it so clearly, it is almost as if I can go back. I mean, I remember even the minute details of what I was doing that day. Strange..... the things that stick with you on days like that.

The first thing I remember was Chip getting in from work, as I got up to fee
d our newborn baby. He worked the midnight (all night) shift. Cameron was only 6 weeks old then. I went into the nursery and sat down in the rocker. I remember it was a nice morning, and very quiet. As I finished feeding him the phone rang, it was my dad. All he said was "you need to turn on the TV, something is happening and its bad. An airplane just flew into the World Trade Center."

From that point on I was glued to the TV. Chip slept most of the day, although I would stick my head in the bedroom occasionally and give him updates. He would just sit up, half-awake, and shake his head in disgust.

I just remember crying. I could hardly believe what I was seeing. I remember
thinking that this new child I had just delivered 6 weeks earlier would automatically grow up in a world so different from what we had been accustomed to. I remember wanting to protect him. It scared me to think that he could grow up not feeling the safety and security that we had known until that point. How sad.

From that point on it seems like the world stopped. This was all anyone could think or talk about. All the little things like errands and housework seemed unimportant. For days we were on news and information overload. We sat and waited to hear good news of some amazing rescue, but mostly we heard stories of people who were still wondering and waiting to hear from someone they loved....

Now, Cameron is 9 years old. Now he asks me about it.

Now, I tell him that some very bad people attacked us that day and we are fighting ver
y hard to keep it from ever happening again. I tell him how blessed we are to live in such a wonderful country and that we should continue to thank God for keeping us safe and pray that it never happens again.

I tell him that is why the brave soldiers are fighting in far away places and we should thank them every chance we get. But there were also many heroes that day, who died honorably trying to protect and save people they didn't even know.
