Okay, well it's not my "official" new blog... but it will due for now while my custom one is under construction. I have been wanting to post pictures in a larger format without having to wait for my blog to be finished... SO, I set up a temporary blog (with the VERY little knowledge I have about blogs and computer techy stuff!).

Please check it out here

Chao everyone! See you at my new-ish, will "get me by for now" blog!

Sneak a peek....

Here's a teaser until I can get the rest posted! I LOVE THIS SHOT... wish I had one of me and my sweetie like this!


These are the children of one of my dear clients. We did baptism pictures for her oldest child a few years back. I was so excited when she contacted me again to do the next child's baptism pictures. And you can see why.... these girls are so beautiful and EASY to photograph! They were such a delight to work with. She decided that we should do "sibling" pictures too. So much fun!

Please leave a comment on this post. If Julie gets 25 comments here, she will get a complimentary 8x10 print! So start your comments coming!

Part of Session fee will be donated...

So many wonderful things have happened for me and my little family the last little while. We feel so blessed and recognize that each little moment we enjoy is such a gift and not one to be taken for granted. A comfortable home, food on the table, children who are healthy and happy, my husband's career has grown leaps and bounds and I have the chance to stay at home with my children and pursue my passion of photography. We've had some very rough times the past few years and thank our lucky stars that we are getting over the obstacles we have faced. It is nice to be able to breathe a little again :)

With all this gratitude, my heart aches for the many families that are struggling financially, or with their health... or both. My heart goes out to families that need medical treatments and can't afford them, especially when it involves children.

SO... during the months of March and April, I want to donate a portion of every session that is booked with me. I will be donating this money to Primary Children's Hospital. Will you please help me out with this?

Thanks so much!

I did some portfolio sessions last fall that turned out AMAZING. Everyone was so great to work with and we captured some really fun images. I can't wait to finally put them on my new blog that I am working on.

So, the reason I'm telling you this is because I have decided to offer ONE MORE giveaway session. It's not necessarily for my website portfolio, but it may end up going there. I'm just in the giving mood and want to meet some new faces! It seems like a lot of families are struggling financially, so maybe this is someone's chance to get their pictures taken without having to spend a lot.

CONTEST INFO: It's simple, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT and tell me why you/or your child deserves to have a complimentary photo session with me. Winner will be chosen randomly on February 28th. Tell your friends and family to come and take a look at my blog to have a chance at the free session, too.

Thanks, Jess


**** There will be no charge for the photo session ($150 value), but a print minimum of $200 is required. Complimentary, you will get a medium res. CD of 25 of the photographers favorite images, an 8x10 print and mini-cards to hand out with an image from your session. Package collections can be applied to this promotion.
