Change is GOOD!

July 23, 2011

I can’t believe it has been over two months since my last blog post……Facebook has really been the reason, I can’t lie :)

I wanted to announce some very exciting changes if you don’t follow me on Facebook.  I am in the middle of creating a brand new PORTRAIT website!  I am thrilled to finally find the time to do this.  It is going to ROCK and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

With this, it was time to also make some changes to our pricing structure.    I have really been fighting with myself about this, but the increases in cost of doing business over the last 3 years has really forced me to finally make the move.  It only made sense to do this along with the launch of the new website.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  If you can believe – my weekends for holiday sessions are already starting to book!  If you are considering an outdoor session from September to November and you need a weekend, PLEASE contact me as soon as possible.

THANKS to everyone for your continued support!!


What fun it was working with this family.  Olivia and her friends were not wasting any time on the dance floor and her unique candle lighting ceremony touched everyone in the room.  Thank you “I” family for inviting me to document your Bat Mitzvah.  What an incredible time in Olivia’s life.  All the best to you and thank you so much for being so patient during my holiday rush.  I hope you enjoy this sneak peek until I can get you the rest!  Sincerely,  Stacy

Holiday Card samples 2010

September 21, 2010

The buzz of the holiday season is starting and we are in full swing booking holiday sessions at Just To See You Smile!  If you are a current client and have not received your HOLIDAY EMAIL from JTSYS then please contact us right away so that you don’t have to miss out!  The THREE DAYS WITH SANTA is going to be a huge hit this year!  Already have 41 sessions on the book for visits with SANTA!!!!  I do have spots open for it so PLEASE check your calendar’s quick and let me know.  I am opening the final spots up to non-clients in the next couple weeks and don’t want you to miss this special opportunity to have PRIVATE one on one time with Santa and beautiful portraits to document this special time of year.    PSST….don’t wait in the mall this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There have been many who have asked about what to wear for this special session.  I won’t be able to post an image of the holiday background until the week before, but I have been told it will include mahogany wall with green faux paint at the top, nutcrackers, a christmas tree, and holiday decor to fill it all in.  A big chair for Santa…  I would recommend traditional holiday attire for this one.  I am normally very casual and laid back, but this one might be nice all dressed up.  It might be cute to have kiddos in their holiday pajama’s while Santa reads them a story…up to you!

Here are just a few samples that I have decided on for holiday cards this year.  I will be posting more as the date approaches.

So Stinkin’ Cute

September 10, 2010

This little cutie was doing all kinds of tricks for me today in studio….I had to share b/c she is the niece of the bride that I just posted on the blog from an August wedding.   Absolutely love the determination  :)

Hard to believe that our summer has come and went.  I have yet to post images from our awesome RV “Griswald” vacation that we returned from just about 10 days ago.  It all just happened in a blink of an eye.   New shoes, uniforms, supplies, backpacks and haircuts….  My little baby is off and running to her first day of kindergarten this morning…I am so thrilled that she is so excited!  There were a few moms that had little ones clinging to their sides, and my two were off and running without hardly a “goodbye”.    Hanna had no hesitation in starting her first day of fourth grade at a new school this year.  This re-affirms our decision to send them to Lake Worth Christian.  (  So they were off…..sniff, ,sniff.

School is OUT!

June 2, 2010

Every year I do this quirky thing…..first day of school and last day of school, so I can get a sense of how much the girls have grown over just one school year.  It is amazing to me how little they look the first day and how big they look the last day!  Here is Abby’s for Pre-K this year, she got out last Friday, May 28.    No more pre anything – she is ready for the big leagues!  Watch out Kindergarten – here she comes!!!!   ps.  usually the shoes are old and ratty by the end of the year.  Abby outgrew her tennis shoes so she got a new pair for summer!  I am pretty sure she was the only kid in class with brand new tennis shoes the last day of school….LOL.  Her report card shows that Abby weighed 39 lbs and was 3’9″ at the beginning of the year.  She was 43lbs. and 3’11″ at the end of the year.  WOW.  Oh – and notice how she needed “builda”, the bear, the first day and by the end she thought only “babies carry snugglies”.

Here’s Hanna!  A huge change over the year for her too….alot more grown up going into the 4th grade and she is much more in tune to how she looks and dresses before she leaves the house.  I am not sure if that is a good or a bad thing  :)   She insisted on letting her hair grow back out after donating it last August (just before school).   We are extremely proud of her for doing so well on her first year of the FCAT.  She was so excited about bringing home the 4th grade math book that she has carried it with her almost every where we have gone for the last week!

All the kids were SO adorable in their caps and gowns and I have more pics I want to post, but I had to share just one for now.   We are so proud of her.  The teachers took the time to put together a video montage of the year to music and we will get a copy next week, it completely brings tears to your eyes…

psst…by the way, this is ONE of the many reasons to shoot RAW….my flash did not go off in this shot and I was SO bummed when I finally looked thru the images.  The image before this was fine for light, but it was out of focus.  Had I not shot RAW for this image, it would have been tossed.  Thank you CANON for making such amazing tools to help me capture these wonderful moments.

FINALLY!!!  I have been waiting and waiting and waiting and I finally got my wish for a set of BRAND NEW TWINS!  (LOL, I act like it was a pair of new shoes!)

Here is just a couple from the session today – there are SO many awesome images from this session.  I am building my TWIN portfolio – if you know someone expecting twins, I am offering a FREE session and a FREE 8×10 print for anyone who can bring me twins that are less than 10 days old.   Restrictions apply, so please get in touch with me asap.

Thank you to the “P” Family for bringing me your precious bundles of joy.  They were like heaven in front of my camera  :)
