Santa never forgets...

When Santa stopped by our studio to discuss his picture project with us (to be at LeGourmet Chef on 12/21), he wanted to pay a special visit to our studio manager, Michele (though he called her "Shelly").

He said that Shelly's home was one of his favorites to visit when she was a little girl.  He said that she always "believed," and she always greeted him with warm hugs every time she got to see him and tell him what she wanted for Christmas.

It was like turning the clock back when Santa said, "HO, HO, HO!!!"  "Shelly's" face lit up with a big smile, and she again greeted Santa with a big hug and a smile!  

It was fun to be there and watch the special "reunion."  But I think you can trace back Michele's genealogy and learn that she is actually related to Santa!  No wonder kids love Michele when they visit our studio!  She has the same warm, caring and generous heart!  She is a joy to be around!

Merry Christmas!

Santa is coming!

It's only a week away!  What, you say?  Santa's return to Chillicothe!

Santa helped us raise money for Rock for Tots just two weeks ago by appearing at the Christopher Conference Center and having pictures made.  Kids came from all across town to see Santa and have their picture made with him, but then he had to return to the North Pole as things were getting busy in the toy shop.

Well, we talked with Santa again last week, and he has agreed to take time from his busy schedule for more pictures.  Oh, and these aren't just "snapshots" or "Polaroids."  These are professional studio pictures!  If Santa can come all the way from Alaska (especially this close to Christmas), 
then we can certainly bring
our studio lights and equipment for great pictures on location!

Santa will be appearing at LeGourmet Chef on Bridge Street in Chillicothe on Sunday, December 21, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. for pictures.

Photo packages will be delivered after Christmas, but the experience with Santa so close to Christmas Day, and the quality of the photographs will be something you and your kids will never forget!

We hope to see you there!


LOCATION:  LeGourmet Chef (Bridge Street in Chillicothe, Ohio, near Elder Beerman)
DATE:  12/21/08 (Sunday)
TIME:  1 to 3:00 p.m.

Heather & Jesse's Wedding

I wanted to share a few images that Jerry and I captured last night at Heather & Jesse's wedding in Greenup, Kentucky.   They were a great couple and their wedding provided lots of fun detail opportunities.  These are the kind of images that enable unique "story-telling" album designs, which in turn, are fantastic for creating Storybook-style Albums and one-of-a-kind coffee-table books.

I hope to have the time soon to share more images from other '08 weddings that we were privileged to shoot.  I think you'll enjoy seeing all the unique and creative compositions our team has created this year.  And if you (or someone you know) are in the market for a wedding photographer, I hope that you'll call us to set up a free wedding consultation in our studio.  We'd love to chat about your upcoming plans!

If you do visit us as you plan your wedding, and if you book a 2009 wedding, we'll give you a free Engagement Session if you mention this blog!  ( stuff!)

Gotta run for now, I was up until 2 a.m. just looking through Heather and Jesse's images!
