We were so excited when we got word a few months ago that Susquehanna Style Magazine wanted to use Nicole and Shaun’s wedding in their Real Wedding Section of this issue. It should be on local book shelves soon! I just got my issue in the mail today and wanted to post! Yeah!!!!
This has been quite an incredible year! We have had so many amazing clients and people come into our lives. I am truly thankful for each and every one of you. So many changes have happened this year, most for the better. We are continuing to grow everyday and learn from the things we have endured. I want to Thank everyone for being a part of this experience and to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a blessed New Year! We are taking a few days off to spend with family and friends and will resume after the new year. Don’t panic if you already have things set up with us. Those are still on. Take care and see you in the New Year!!!

With the craziness of the year and the new things happening around here, we managed to squeeze in a few last minute Christmas sessions. Here are some of my favs from each one.
Over Thanksgiving, my family traveled down to Tennessee to visit my friend Tina Wilson . I met Tina almost 2 years ago at a workshop and while she talked, I thought ” My gosh, that is my life!” The jobs she had, the things she had happen to her… It was crazy. So we definitely connected and became instant friends. I asked her to photograph our family this year since we don’t have any images of us hanging in the house. Tina told me there was this place she was dying to photograph at, but there were no trespassing signs everywhere. I told her I would go ask. We knocked and knocked, the place was empty, so we proceeded with caution. They turned out amazing!!! Here are my favorites and you can see more on her blog here .
Thank you all so much for playing in the contests we had for the past 2 weeks. It was a nice break and I wanted to pay back all my loyal blog followers and friends for supporting me throughout the year. Although weddings are done for a few weeks, we still have some sessions and some amazing announcements on the way. (nail biters)
But first….. Congratulations goes to Sarah!!!!!! This girl has been die hard blog stalking every single day!! We had a few people who answered all the question correctly and were thrown in a hat and Braden picked the winner this morning. Sarah, Cameron Estates will be sending the gift directly. So thank you all and keep coming back!!!! Happy Holidays!!!!
