mr memorial day!!!!!

just in case you happened  to forget i have seen him every year TO THE DAY since he was born!  you can go back by starting HERE or you can start from the very beginning at his NEWBORN SESSION HERE…shoot, you can even see him every year if you look back at the all wrapped up holiday minis, hahaha….but guess what?!  he is going to have to share his chubby cheek spotlight soon bc his new little brother will be here later this summer!!!!!!  eeeekkkkk!!!!  my fav little aggie family is adding another to our fighting texas aggie fan base!  WHOOP!

  • Kimberly - These are FABULOUS!!! Love them and love you – cannot wait to see the rest!ReplyCancel

a few important little details….

1.  as you know i am taking most of the summer off to be with my babies….having said this, that means the fall bookings are going to book fast & furious.  I AM OPENING UP FALL BOOKINGS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

2.  thats worth repeating…i am opening up my fall calendar right this very minute!  so if you are interested in a fall session of any kind you should probably go ahead an shoot me an email or give me a call skc@chubbycheekdesigns(dot)com

3.  all wrapped up holiday session booking info will be up later this summer as usual, and if the last few years have been any indication of how crazy fast they book you might want to keep up with me (i felt like justin beiber last year 36 session in 12 min, YIKES)…with FB making all these nutso changes (don’t get me started) this could be tricky so i have devised a plan b for us:)ya like that I’m always think about you wonderful people 😉

plan b…i am nixing the old pita newsletter and starting a new one NEXT WEEK!  i will announce it here and on lousy fb so you can be sure to sign up, bc at this time it seems the best way to keep in touch with y’all on really important details is to go back to the good old days ha and do it myself in email…hahaha old days….so even if you signed up for the old newsletter you will still need to sign up for the new one, boooo i know and i apologize in advance for that.  (as a side note…i know I’m kind of a fun gal and all but i ask that ONLY CLIENTS sign up for the newsletter at this time, I’m just not sure its goo business to have all my announcements go out to every photographer who might just be a little curious ya know?!)

4. and last but NOT LEAST…THE MOST IMPORTANT one…i have decided to open up a few summer session during the month of august, so if you are interested shoot my an email AS WELL AS ADDING A SMART COOKIE ACADEMY for end of june and middle of august….

5.  if you are a high school senior NOW is def the time to book your session as i only take LIMITED senior sessions these days

6. wow!  six bullet points?!?!?!  gosh well its a good thing this one is just to day LOVE YALL 😉

i truly believe that each of you, no matter what kind of camera you have or dont have, no matter how perfect or imperfect our days can be, it needs to be captured…LIFE needs to be captured.  As a group we hope to inspire you to take out that camera, capture a full day of YOUR life, capture your afternoon swinging at the park, or riding bikes to check the mail, any of it, all of it, just capture it!  No one but your family will prob ever enjoy these images and hey they may not ever even be edited if you are a photog but the bottom line is someday you will look back and you will be so happy you have these memories captured.

this month flew by…preschool is over for cheeks #1 she will be in the big K next year…gulp…anyhoo lets not think about that at this moment…so we all needed a break…like a real break, like a sleep in til 9:00am, swim ALL.DAY.LONG, drink the best pink sand beaches you have ever had (out of red solo cups of course, ha), kinda break.  and THAT is exactly what we didi for 3 straight days….sigh…thanks grammy and pappy
