The wait is over!

Here she is! I got to do Halie's photo session yesterday! She's the second place winner from the photo contest. What a cutie, don't you think???

The first time I got to "meet" Halie was at the Novi 50's Festival back in July. She was so cute that I used her image as the opening to the online gallery. She's still really cute and she's so sweet, too! She kept calling me Hally - she couldn't get that there was no "H" in my name! It was just too precious!
We took a whole bunch of images and she was such a trooper. Her mom had about 3 outfits to change into and Miss Halie let me take shot after shot of her in each one. True, we did have to do some bribing with suckers, cookies, donuts, etc., but she did it and was really good, too!

She was all excited because she's getting a Princess Bed from Santa this year. She's a big girl now, after all!

Enjoy this sneak peak - I think it's going to be rather difficult to pick from all of her awesome images. This little girl is a knock out! Oh, and did I mention that she has a big sister and a big brother who are equally as gorgeous! What I'd give to do a sibling shoot with these guys!!! ;)

Happy looking!!!

Long time, no blog!

Hey everyone! How've you all been? I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you're all ready for the holidays. As you can see, I've been really busy - I've had two of the three photo sessions from the contest. It was really hard to edit those images! There were so many really cute ones of both boys - I guess it's a good problem to have, right?

So, not too much has been happening here with me, other than the fact that I've been SWAMPED! I've been so busy. I haven't gone to bed before 12:30 in about a month. I must say, I've been pretty pleasant for a person who's functioning on less than about 6 hours of sleep per night. Usually I'm a big grouch if I don't get my eight hours.

I'm also launching a new newsletter come the first of the year. It's going to be full of great information, super articles and some recipes, too. Let me know if you'd like to be on the mailing list. You really won't want to miss out on this. And I promise that I won't share any of your information with anyone else. What happens with Ally, stays with Ally. :)

On a side note, I'm offering until the end of the year a special on gift certificates. If you purchase a gift certificate, I'll double the value of it up to $1000! Think of it as a "thank you" for being a loyal reader of the blog, or just being lucky enough to stumble upon it right now! So, if you're stumped about what to get for your mom, mother-in-law, grandma, wife, best friend - WHOEVER- let me know! What an incredible deal! As an example, if you buy a gift certificate for $250, it's actually worth $500!!! Who wouldn't be excited to receive that??? The "Double Your Dollars" promotion is only going on until the end of the month though. So get on it while you can.

I've been holding more and more sessions, so make sure you check back and see who's been in front of my camera!

Happy holidays!
