Favorite photo of the week: There are several. I recently blogged my friends Meagan and Jordan Lawhead’s wedding photos. Well, My friend Melissa Jill – who is an amazing wedding photographer, told me that I should also blog their engagement photos. Got some wonderful compliments from her XOXO! I had only posted their video. So when MJ says I should blog something… I’m going to listen and take her advice. She’s one of the best in the business…
So for favorite photo this week, I’m sharing my favorites from my engagement session with Meagan and Jordan!
Enjoy and Happy Friday!
February 10, 2012
Really… I let a whole week go by without blogging after I promised to be a better blogger in 2012…. Ugh! What can I say? I sort of feel like I got caught in a wind tunnel.
I started working on a project for my High School Seniors. Four intense days later, I was finally, mostly, done! Wow – didn’t see that coming. So my blogging went down the tubes! Shame on me.
But I KNOW you all survived right?
Well – here’s a peek at what I was working on. I worked on a project for my Seniors. A 16 page SENIOR Magazine Brochure/Guide to Senior photos with Pati Pakulis Photography. It covers everything a Senior needs to know to have an AMAZING Senior Portrait Experience with my company! 16 pages….. yep, was in a cave for day!
I am NOT a graphic designer – so I actually used a template, but EVEN THAT took SOOOO long! But I am happy with the results! Here’s a Peek at my COVER PAGE:
Anyway — so… ON TO FRIDAY FAVORITES. I can at least be consistent and stick to this right? Here we go:
