Boudoir Mini-Sessions

It looks like we are getting closer to setting up some Boudoir mini-sessions in the very near future.  I am hoping to get something in the first few weekends of November.  I want to be able to have photos ready to give to that special someone for Christmas.
Lynette Weber Photography will be assisting with this mini-session.  We have already found a make-up and hair stylist, I am in contact with some creative ladies for hair pieces and jewelry, all I need now is a location!  I have five places that I am going to be meeting with over the next two weeks.  Once we have the place pinned down, we will be set to go!
I am very excited to be able to offer this opportunity to you all.  I know that the mention of it got a great response.
I am looking forward to setting up more mini-sessions in the future!

Happy 4th of July!

The 4th of July....Independance Day....America's Birthday!
What does the 4th of July mean to you?  Do you think of all that gave us our freedom?  Do you fly your American flag proudly?
Does it mean barbeques and fireworks, or freedom and pride?
Take a moment today to remember all of the soldiers that lost their lives for our freedom, for all the families that lost their brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, fathers and mothers for our freedom.  Take a moment to pray for the safety of our soldiers that are still fighting to keep us free, and for those that will one day join them.
Happy Independance Day America!

Heather & Dennis....Married!

Congratulations to Heather & Dennis Monroe.  They exchanged vows on June 4th, 2011 at Blu Falls Arts & Events Center in Pendleton, IN.  We had the pleasure of photographing and DJing this event.  We even provided the music for the outdoor ceremony.  Both the ceremony and reception were held at Blu Falls.
We began in the bridal suite.  Makeup and hair by Karen Hall & Company

We then headed outdoors for a few family photos before getting the ceremony started.

After the ceremony, we took advantage of the beautiful waterfalls that Blu Falls has on their property.

Then it was time to celebrate indoors at the reception.  Everything was beautifully decorated in the bride's choices of pink and orange.  As the event's DJ, we provided dance floor lighting in addition to great music!

DJ Jeremy even had an assistant:

Even after the storm rolled in, and the power went out, we continued to entertain the guests.  One of the guests lived close by and had a generator that he brought out to keep the music and lights going.  The rest of the building was lit by only security lights and candles.

This was our first event with Blu Falls, and we hope that it is not our last.  It is a beautiful location, both indoors and out.  And the staff is fabulous!
Congratulations Heather & Dennis Monroe!

Back to blogging!

Ok, so it has been awhile since we have updated our blog.  I won't use any excuses.....I am just going to get back into it!
Hope you all have been having a wonderful summer so far.  The weather has been fantastic here lately, and we have been having some family fun!  We just took the kiddos to Cedar Point and Put-In-Bay in Ohio last week while visiting Brian's family.  The weather didn't cooperate fully for Put-In-Bay, but it was nice for the most part.  We had fabulous weather for Cedar Point.

There are some big plans currently in the works this summer.  I am partnering up with Lynette Weber Photography to do a Boudoir Mini-Session day at a local luxury hotel.  We are getting hair and makeup artists set up to be on hand for any girls that may be interested as well.  More details to come soon.

I have set up new office hours.  Our office is closed on Monday and Tuesday.  Yes, I know I work from home, but I also have a part time job that I just can't leave!  I work at a local Veterinarian office as a part time receptionist.  I am, however, available the rest of the week.  The office is open for appointments Wednesday through Sunday.  Hours are by appointment only since we do work from home.  Consultations can be set up at any local Starbucks, Panera Bread, or Qdoba Mexican Grill.  We can come to you!  Photo sessions are on location only.  I do have a portable studio that can be set up in your living room, if you prefer indoor photos.  I also have a zoo membership that allows me to bring two guests!  So, if you want outdoor photos, but it looks like the weather won't cooperate, let's go to White River Gardens in the conservatory!  Locations that are more than 20 miles outside of Avon, IN will require travel fees.

I am looking forward to more weddings, and more photo shoots!  Give me a call, shoot me an email, or even send me a text if you have any questions, or are ready to set up your consultation!

Damar Guild Dinner/Dance

I had the pleasure of DJing the Damar Guild Dinner/Dance last night. The Guild was able to raise a lot of money from ticket sales, and a live and silent auction. The theme was Hollywood. They even had a red carpet to walk in on! My good friend, Lynette Weber, of Lynette Weber Photography, helped out with photos. She did a fantastic job and I can't wait to share some photos with you!
The group at Damar is wonderful. We enjoy every event we attend with Damar. If you are looking for a charity to donate to, this is definitely one that should be high on your list. The work they do with Autistic and other mentally challenged children is amazing. They were using the funds raised at this event to help put together another transitional home for students on their way to taking care of themselves. There are still many children that reside at the Damar campus that could use help as well.
To make a donation to Damar, visit their site at
Membership in the Damar Guild is open to all women ages 18 and older. The Guild meets the first Tuesday evening of the month at various locations across the Indianapolis area. If you’re interested in learning more about membership in the Damar Guild, click here.
Thank you, again, to Lynette Weber for all your help, and for donating your time to the Guild! I hope that we can work together on future charity events!

Tim & Kacy....Engaged!

Tim & Kacy have hired us to photograph and DJ their April 30th wedding, and with that they also received a free engagement shoot! Since we were running out of time for the engagement photos to be completed before the wedding, we decided to set a date and get them done. The weather has not been in our favor for getting outside for a shoot, so we decided to try to find a great indoor location. I have only done shoots in the winter at the Hilbert Conservatory at White River Gardens and the Zoo. It has the most variety, and is always open.....except for right now! They have closed the conservatory to prepare it for the Orchid show that starts on March 18th. So, we had to find a different location.
I had seen wedding photos at the Library before, and thought we should give it a try. I am so glad that we did. It turned out to be a great spot for an Engagement shoot!
Here is a look at some of the photos from their session.
