FAMILY SESSION: Gracious and Generous

It was not difficult to determine a title for this blog post...

For the privacy/protection of my clients, I don't typically use names, rather I use descriptive words...words that give a little more insight into the "story" being told...

Gracious and Generous are definitely words that characterize this family...

the definition of "gracious" is courteous, kind, and pleasant...

These are the mannerisms exhibited by each family members...whether it be through their polite interactions or their thoughtful smiles...even these sweet kiddos have been taught by example how to bestow grace onto others...

the definition of "generous" is showing a readiness to give more of something than is strictly necessary or expected. 

This is another area where they excel...

they are generous in their words, in their praise, in their thankfulness for good things in their life...they are generous in their time, their sacrifice and even their finances...

I am so honored to have met them...I come away from my time with them feeling uplifted and valued.  

That is a gift...

That I would follow their example and leave others feeling more encouraged than before they met me is a worthy aspiration...

2017 Fall Sessions



Hello friends...

Wow...this has been a whirlwind start to Fall...

Never in all my years, has my schedule filled up so fast and furious!!!

I have posted  here on the blog, on Facebook and on Instagram since January all the way to September about my Email Sign Up lists in order to attempt to become more organized in my distribution of information and to get FREE session guides out to everyone. 
You can read about my "crazy" HERE.

Low and behold, that email went out the middle Friday of September and by nearly noon, all my weekend and after school time slots were scooped up.

I do still have some school day options available for Seniors OR if families have flexible schedules with homeschool or work-from-home options and are able to do a morning session.

You can check out my October schedule HERE.

SO NOW WHAT?

Well, as I try to work around soccer games, play performances, tennis matches, school conferences, and just the run of the mill MOM stuff, we also have to figure in the lovely Ohio weather...

I have no idea what this Fall is going to be like...

I'm sure many of you are already seeing that the leaves are changing color already.  In years past, that hasn't really started until we at least get into October, with the peak being around the 3rd week of October.  Last year, the warmer weather led right into November, with leaves still on the trees as well.

IF that happens this year, AND I don't have too many reschedules that will need rain dates before daylight saving kicks in, THEN I will contact those that wish to be on a wait list for whatever dates I may have available in November.

I will also keep my "wait list" people posted about potential cancellations..."LIFE" does happen from time to time with sick kiddos and/or poison ivy (I've had it happen!) and suddenly there is a spot that opens.

If you'd like to be on that wait list, just email me at ctphotomemories@gmail.com

I'm sad to miss those of you that were unable to find a compatible time and I hope you'll consider a spring/summer session in 2018.

I'll be utilizing the current email list that I started this year to send out information periodically, so if you are signed up, you are good to go!

I hope you have a beautiful Fall!  I'm looking forward to caramel apples and pumpkin picking...and especially the holidays and spending time with my family!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram and stories to see some BTS life with me as well.

SENIOR SESSION: Izzie

I know that we all tend to be pulled toward people that are like-minded...we feel most comfortable with people that are just like us...that perhaps dress similarly, or have similar athleticism or musical desires...We all have our comfort zones...they often make us feel confident and like we "belong" because we are "the same"...

I would gather that although we all have a spectrum of personality and likes & dislikes, there are often polar traits within us...and for the most part, we lean heavily to one side than the other...

After birthing 3 daughters who are so unbelievably different from one another, I became more aware of all the differences that form, even in one family...

Of course, as a mom, I look for similarities...ways that they are "like me"...but, what I find most intriguing...most comforting, are the ways that they are individuals...the ways they are different...

Izzie is the eldest of 3 girls...and she holds her own...she's got a sweet, gentle feminine side and she's got a confident, "knock 'em down on the field" competitive side...

and what is so, so impressive, is that she marries the two together into this beautiful, strong, young woman...

she has a fierceness about her...she leaves it all on the field...and yet, hanging right there in the breath around her is a softness, with a gentle smile that makes her approachable...

She, her mom and I had such a lovely time chatting and walking around town...looking for ways to showcase Izzie's whole personality...she's beautiful and bold, yet reserved...it's fascinating to see the intricate and complex ways we are all created...

Congrats Izzie...this year is going to be fantastic!
