Holiday Hours

22 12 2009

Happy Holidays, everyone! I am so excited to celebrate Christmas this year! Here is my updated Holiday office schedule:

December 23rd-27th: Closed

December 28th-January 1: Open (for calls, emails and viewing sessions–no photo sessions available)

Also, a reminder that Genesis Photography will be CLOSED for the month of January. Click here for more information.

And of course, I can’t post without including some photos!

This is my last senior of the year! Despite the bright sun and the chilly temps, we managed to have a great shoot. You see, Ben is an avid hockey player, and is very familiar with the cold. And although I am sure there is a big difference between working out on a rink with hockey gear on and getting your photos taken, Ben did a great job under the frigid conditions!

Gilly…

11 12 2009

I had the best time on this shoot. This senior brought along her close friend along, and we laughed and laughed. Mostly about this hilarious character on SNL (below). All it took was a little “Gilly….

Here are some photos of the laughter:

And the rest of the photos!





Holidays? Already?

30 11 2009

Well, with the holidays in full swing, my blog has been a little bit neglected. I am hoping to get caught up on some posts this week.  And stay tuned for some photos of our baby girl! I will post photos soon!

I am so excited to show you these photos! This is a beautiful senior who just recently moved to Eau Claire. She was up for anything, and so we tried a few locations, and ended up in a park in front of some gorgeous cattails. It was a bit muddy under the feet, but I think the results made it worth the work! (Btw, I know I already posted this photo in my last entry, but I just really love it, so I guess you will just have to deal with it! haha!)





Update

20 11 2009

As many of you may know, my husband and I are in the process of adopting a baby girl from Ethiopia! Things are finally getting closer to our travel dates (which have yet to be finalized) and we are very excited!  We can’t wait to welcome our little girl into our family and into our lives forever…

Because of this, I will be taking some time away from my typical photography schedule to care for my new baby. SO, my tentative schedule for the next few months looks like this:

November – FULLY BOOKED

December – Slots left for two newborn shoots and one maternity shoot FULLY BOOKED

January – CLOSED for booking, but limited Viewing Sessions will be available

February – Very Limited booking (please feel free to contact me now for these 3-4 sessions)

March – Resume regular schedule

Thank you so much for keeping my upcoming schedule in mind as you consider your future plans with Genesis Photography.

Now, on to a little sneak-peek of some shoots I am working on right now!





Riding Shotgun

24 10 2009

Here are some great shots from a recent senior shoot. In light of today’s huge snowfall here in WI, I am enjoying this look back at a (much) warmer day when I got to ride shotgun in Zack’s super-cool Jeep…which his mom was driving. Zach was chivalrous enough to drive his mom’s minivan so these two gal pals could take his Jeep for a spin. Thanks, Zack! And don’t worry, you still looked cool driving the van.

Naturally

20 10 2009

I am so behind on blogging and editing it is not even funny! This fall has been my busiest since the beginning of Genesis Photography. Thank you so much to all of my clients who have been waiting so patiently for their photos. I promise, they are all coming!!! And Mikayla, I know you are reading this…rest assured that your brother’s photos and your family photos are coming soon…next, in fact!. 🙂

For this next shoot, we drove out to Coon Fork County Park at the request of this senior. Her family has tons of special memories there, and now we can add these fun images to their list. It was a perfect evening for photos, and the natural outdoor beauty of our surroundings helped to capture Brittney’s natural beauty and energy. Enjoy!

Something in the water

14 10 2009

Chelsea’s one special request for her senior photos was to have some shots taken in water. So we found the perfect spot, set up the shot, and then gradually realized that Chelsea wasn’t alone in the water! About three minutes into shooting, she started laughing nervously and saying “I think something is biting me…” but she bravely shook it off and we kept shooting. It was only a minute later when she realized something was, in fact, biting her, and she immediately got out of the water. What do you think Chelsea, was it worth it? =)
