-25 Below ... & Spring is in the air!

So are we all crossing our fingers & toes in hopes that this is the last bad cold snap before we turn the corner toward spring???! Where there's a will, there's a way! The collective power of group thinking, right?! ;) Speaking of Spring, now is the time to get in touch & book your session! I've had several calls/inquiries recently that were surprised to hear that I am currently booking about 6-8 weeks out. Yes, that puts us toward the end of April! Click the contact me button above to get started or feel free to browse further by visiting my portfolio. If I can help you in any way, just let me know! :)

Of course, I can also hook you up with any one of these ;)

And with that, I leave you with one of the secrets of life ... and a recent baby session

She is just so beautiful & was so good to us.

Let The Games Begin!

In some ways, I *cannot* believe we are on the cusp of the new year, literally at our fingertips, within our grasp ... in other ways, it's been a very full year and I do believe it's not only time for the next one, but I am excited about the year & decade ahead. Isn't it wild to think back to 1999 and where you were when ringing in the last decade?! (I can tell you for sure that Prince's tonight I'm gonna party like it's 19-99 was in the background - too much information?! haha!) I can't wait for 2011! Now for what many of you have been waiting for! Starting today and through the first 11 days of the New Year you have the chance to participate and win a photo session courtesy of MachC Photography!

Here are the ground rules:

  • The game runs 1.1.11 through 1.11.11 (yep, I am allllll about number fun here! blame it on that math geek ;) many of you know!)
  • Each day (starting today!) you will be given a task ... an assignment
  • you have 28hours to complete said task (8am until noon the next day), unless otherwise stated
  • You MUST complete EACH task in order to continue on in the game!
  • With every task, you will email me your answer (pictures, words, poems, whatever! ;) )
  • This offer cannot be combined with any other offer. (Past, present or future.)
  • The winner will receive a gift of the session fee equivalent to a child session with MachC Photography (a value of $235)
  • The gift card will be valid until May 31, 2011.

So ... are you ready to rumble???!!!!  ;)

Today's task is S I M P L E! So easy, even your teenager could do it! ;)

1. Post about this game/giveaway in your status update on Facebook (or Twitter) & invite your friends to become friends & fans of MachC Photography! You'll need their support now & in the new year! ;)

Once you've done that, leave a comment here on the blog & you're off n' runnin'! Be ready ... 8am tomorrow, a new challenge, a new task on New Year's Day!

Merry, Merry Christmas

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:  the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.  ~Burton Hillis

May you all enjoy the happiest of days & the fullest of moments in the hours & day to come. We are all so incredibly blessed. As one dear friend said recently, "There are only two times in your life where Christmas is this wonderful: when you are a child ... and when you have children yourself." Where-ever you are in your life, I hope you experience love & joy on this beautiful day.

And don't forget ...

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly. ~Andy Rooney

Merry Christmas to all of you.
