Hello everyone! Fall update on our family and Business!

Time has flown by - and now the summer is over and fall is in full swing.I have not been as active here and  hope to rectify that.

I am pretty well settled in my new apartment and love being so close to the studio (I can walk the 1/4 mile or so) and to Julie. I do love it here- still more to organize and put away - but have been busy working and spending a lot of time on the computer.  Trying hard to work on some new promotions.

The summer has been busy! Julie is now president of the Detroit Professional Photographers Association and doing a great job.  So great to see her go this route as I was the president in 2008.   Ed and I are still on the board for the Professional Photographers of Michigan. Julie and ed are officially engaged - which we are all thrilled about - they are planning a small beach wedding in Florida in January before the SYNC  Senior convention she always goes to.

Aaron graduated with his class as a senior from Cousino high school.  He has one more year full time at Macomb Community College from the early college program in high school and will graduate with an Associates degree - on the state monies!  Julie had an open house for him in the summer. We also had a garage sale before I left at the house in Hazel Park and Julie had one this summer at her house.

We are working on another web site up grade - one that is a little more friendly to the mobile generation and is hopefully easy to keep up.  I wish I knew more about web design - I know what I want to do but can get in trouble when it does not turn out right (hope you didn't see the awful dark scroll background I ended up with earlier today for a short time)  The blog will hopefully be able to get fully moved over and the Animoto Videos will hopefully be able to play again.

We are loving the studio space - Julie is doing great with the High School Seniors there,  as well as other portraits like babies and families. It is so nice to meet with clients there - I can actually have the living room to myself here - without portfolio bridal photos on the wall!

The studio got a makeover - we pained the main wall facing the parking lot a bright blue - can't miss us now - and the parking lot is getting the asphalt resurfaced etc.  Looking good!
