Here’s to you, the reader!

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for you!

Hello Lovely,

I hope this email finds you well on your way to celebrating Thanksgiving with good food and your loved ones!

As we speak I am in a car headed to Nashville, TN with my parents, husband, and little one. We are going to see my uncle and cousins (26 of us total (15 kids) it is sure to be a fun and slightly chaotic week for us and I am so thankful that we were able to make the trip!

I am also very thankful for you and the support you have shown me and my photography business over the time I’ve known you!

Just for that I wanted to give you a special notice about a few new projects I am rolling out in 2020!

The first is my first annual ‘Empowered Women of Northern Virginia’ CHARITY PORTRAIT BOOK Project.

You can read more at the link above but the short of it is that I am looking for 10 lovely ladies to donate their $300 session fee to supply a years’ worth of hay to Warhorses for Heroes, a Veteran’s PTSD charity that provides equine therapy to soldiers in need.

The second? Rooted in Beauty Photography will now be available for PORTRAIT PARTIES!

In case you’ve never heard of such a thing, this is where you, as the party host, would pick a venue (hotel, community sender, park, your home, etc.) and invite a minimum of 5 (max. Of 12) friends to come socialize and receive 15-20 minutes of professional photography! The cost, each of your guests would pay $87 to secure their session time and to receive their resulting hi-res digitals. As a host, you will receive a FREE full session with me ($300 value) as well as a $50 print credit for every guest that gets photographed your party! It a win-win for everyone!

Well that’s all the news I have for now, please reach out to me with any questions or just to say hi! I read and respond to all my email!

Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Keep Smiling,
