We never stop learning

We had a wonderful time at the Nothern Light photography convention this year! We took part in many classes and a trade show that have given us some fun ideas on new products and services. It's so fun to meet with other photographers and share thoughts. We truly enjoyed our time there!

These were our top scoring images in the print competition.

We were also able to enjoy some fun down-time together.....

This "photo-of-the-week" is a 6 month old we are photographing every 3 months for our First Year 4 in 1 special. A photo is taken at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months and incorporated into a composite at the end of the baby's first year. It's a fun way to capture all those little changes!

Getting Ready!

We are hard at work preparing for our busiest season (summer of course) which feels like it's just around the corner! Charlotte attended a Photoshop class on Wednesday to learn some fun, new tricks. We will be off to Breezy Point Resort from Sunday to Wednesday for the Minnesota Professional Photographers Association convention. We'll attend classes, participate in a print competition and network with other photographers about the ever-changing business. It's always an enjoyable and informative experience!

This image from the past week was a request of one of our customer's. She has five grandchildren and wanted to display their baby photos together. We located the past files and put together this composite for her. We all found the finished image to be an adorable way to display these children at nearly the same ages!

Happy Spring!

It's finally warming up and feeling like spring! It's always an exciting time of the year. We're busy creating graduation announcements for the class of 2009; commencement is just around the corner. The year seemed to fly by!

We are also preparing for our 25th anniversary this year. We've been busy reorganizing, painting and redecorating. We had new carpet installed on Monday and are enjoying the updated look! We are planning an open house for this summer.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the sun!

We have had a great few days with our children's special! Thank you to all those who came in! A lot of wonderful expressions were captured and we look forward to seeing the finished product. This was a great session that would be fun to do every year!
