2010 - Live the Glamourous Life

Everyone deserves to have a day of luxury and glamour ... we can help! Starting in mid-January, we will be offering a special experience with Midnight Blue/Dougan Photography, Bella Donna Salon, Country Crossroads and A Brown Bag Gourmet. Your fabulous day will start at Bella Donna Salon, getting your hair and makeup professionally done. You'll then join us in the portrait studio, where you'll be the star of the next great masterpiece. It will be fun, it will be relaxing, you'll feel amazing, and you'll have a gorgeous, unique piece of art to be treasured for years to come. You're next stop will be Country Crossroads, where you'll work with their amazing staff to pick out the perfect frame for your 8x10. And before you know it, your gorgeous photo will be ready to be picked up in a wonderful basket, full of goodies put together especially for you from A Brown Bag Gourmet. Call or email us for details!

Latest Photo Session

We had a terrific photo session with a wonderful, gorgeous family of eighteen yesterday ... four generations all gathering to enjoy the holiday season together. Isn't that awesome? The oldest was 92 and the youngest was just a couple of days old. While we hoped for good weather to be outside, alas the cold temps kept us in and made for a few technical challenges, especially with regards to trying to use just natural light. We ended up approaching the session more in a photo journalistic style, looking to capture the event of their gathering more informally. The resulting photos are turning out to be gentle, sweet, gracious and casual ... just like this family. We've chosen to process the set in soft, sepia toned images ... while they are classic in feel, the compositions are not formal or traditional at all. We are hoping they will love them! We'll share once the family has the first peek and gives us the okay ...
