Catching Up!

Posted in Uncategorized on June 1st, 2015 by Amy

Blogging just isn’t my thing. Not because I don’t like it. I just simply don’t have time? Guess I’m so busy posting tidbits to facebook and instagram, it’s easy to neglect this part of the job.

But here’s what I’ve missed talking about:

We had a few new walls built in the yard, to use as backgrounds. Giving us lots of great options for portrait sessions!

We published our very first studio magazine. Filled with all the info you’d ever need to create beautiful portraits with us!

Our staff changed. It’s now just Allison and I. But we make a great team!

We donated to dozens of causes and organizations that needed auction donations. (Had a lady in town, Jennifer, come in and help us juggle all of these auctions for the most intense few months of the year)
-Ellison Elementary
-Kendall County 4-H
-Cystic Fibrosis
-Herff Ranch
-Boerne Community Theater
-Hill Country SPCA
-St. Marks Early Learning Center
-Boerne Education Foundation
-Hill Country Montessori School
-Respite Care
-Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
-One Love Pet Orphanage
-Cordillera Ranch Shindig
-Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary

Our bluebonnets bloomed beautifully. Our black-eyed-susans are show-stoppers right now. And our sunflowers should be opening in the next two weeks.

I found party lights in our logo’s colors, to hang all around the studio.

Went out to lunch at 259 Brantley’s Bistro for National Employee Appreciation Day.

Allison and I attended the Boerne Education Foundation’s gala. (my seventh year to attend and support this wonderful group)

Allison and I talked Lindsey into coming back to work with us for a few hours… for a fun, fun day of dance portraits. And then Allison and I tackled a second day all on our own. It was or third year photographing Lonestar Collective Dance. Love those cute girls, their sweet moms, and their amazing directors!

We celebrated Red Nose Day. On the day of the fundraising event, I sat and watched (and enjoyed) the show… and then made a donation on our behalf. And when our noses came in the following day, we met up at the studio for pics. We look just a little silly with red noses. 😉

And somewhere in all of this activity, I judged a couple of categories in the 4-H photography contest. Enjoyed getting the view the images and give advice. Was blown away by some of the images. Was tickled to receive a thank you card and Sonic gift card in the mail afterwards!
