This Week

I'm a little off my usual Monday through Friday blogging...but with good reason.

I am minutes, seconds..OK days, from finishing my new website. I can't wait to share it with you!! It is pretty and shiny and new. I think you'll love it as much as me. I have a team working with me on it and they are waiting on me to send over the finalized images. Past clients, I have been staring at your beautiful faces for the last 2 weeks and I am ready to not look at them again for awhile.(don't be offended...it's not you, it's the computer and files and resizing and choosing and editing down!!!! pure exhaustion..but worth it). Hopefully in a few days I can reveal the end product and enjoy it for a few months before it's time to update. I will actually be unveiling 2 new sites and a new blog! Stay tuned.

Also, I have been waiting and waiting to tell you some other great news...Real Simple Magazine contacted me a couple months ago about the possibility of showcasing one of my weddings in their upcoming wedding issue. I happily submitted some images and they will be printed in their 2010 wedding issue hitting the shelves this Friday (I think). I will positively post more about this once I have it in my hands.

Thank you Real Simple for considering my work. I love your magazine!!

2010 has had a nice start and with more exciting jobs coming up it looks like it's going to be a good year.

Congratulations Rachel! That is awesome. You so deserve it. Your pictures are always so beautiful, what talent you have. I love that magazine and can't wait to see your stuff in there!

I hope your celebrating. If you need any idea foodwise for a good celebration, I can pass some your way. And I promise I'd choose some that are doable in a chicken wired kitchen. :)

Can't wait to see it! I have to tell you that I just looove Nicole + Tony's engagement session. Seriously so beautiful, and I thought it was so cute how you were crying because of biggest loser and the photos-- sounds like something I would do :)

Yay Rachel. You really are TBPITW! Way to go. Can't wait for the website update. I will be green with envy. Love you!

Congratulations on our spread Rachel. I bought the magazine yesterday and it's beautiful! A little (actually incredibly) unfortunate that they didn't print my name or company website with the flowers. Maybe you could do me a favor when you blog about it again and add my name with the flowers? :) thanks!
