Next, the judges take all 50 finalists throughout US and Canada and choose their top three favorites.  Those will be announced on the 25th!!!  We’ll be waiting on pins and needles to see if one of these beauties take a big prize!!!

Happy Anniversary, Emily!

We’re still not sure when Emily actually started working for Shutter-Happy.  ;) 

But I know Alice and I started talking to her about the first of April about just taking over some marketing tasks.  Her first big job was helping me with the Rainbow Play Systems’ Easter Extravaganza (which was about this time last year).  And then it snowballed!

Alice had to leave her job… Emily agreed to take over all those consulting and scheduling duties too, as my consultant.

We found the studio… Emily agreed to take over ordering appointments, and we gave her the title “studio manager”.

Business boomed… She’s now helping with every appointment, unpacking deliveries, packaging orders, framing prints, running errands, helping clients design beautiful orders, taking care of every phone call, etc, etc!  All, just so I can keep my full attention on creating and printing the beautiful images my clients are used to.

Thank you, Emily!  Thanks to you, the workflow is running smoothly, clients are happy, business is better than it has ever been, and I am sane.  :)  I’m proud of you for how much you’ve learned this last year and how much you’ve helped make “my baby” such a success.

Boerne Education Foundation’s Gala

Shutter-Happy had a table for the whole staff, past and present.  Through two silent auction donations, we raised hundreds of dollars for the local schools.  We had wonderful conversations, enjoyed visiting with the community and clients, and were treated to a great dinner and delicious dessert!

Our auction donations?
We gave away one free portrait party (which was packaged with gifts from other neat local businesses).  Worth $300.  🙂
And we gave away a free portrait session and any size paper art piece.  Worth $1000!!!!
