Katherine & Brandt


One of my favorites I came across while loading them the other day.  More coming soon!

Oh and just a little FYI – These two were troopers through the freezing, windy day Monday brought us!  But that weather didn’t budge us one bit – we still had an amazing session!

And one last thing:  A huge THANK YOU to Katherine & Brandt,  who were SO SWEET to arrive holding a hot vanilla latte’ from Starbucks to help “keep me warm” for the afternoon.  That was so awesome.  I heart Starbucks.  :9  Anytime you want to show up with food and/or a beverage, I won’t mind!

Thanks again, you two!  I’ll be posting more as I get around to getting those babies narrowed down!


Back from Florida!

Well, we are back from our trip!  We had an amazing week!  (More details and some really cool pics to come!)

I don’t have time to talk about how great our trip was right now.  Thursday (tomorrow) I begin returning the numerious emails, phone calls, and tackling the big “to-do” lists that have been waiting for me since I left.  I promise I WILL be returning all inquiries, it may just take me more than one day to get to ya!  🙂

If I could say (quickly) one thing about our trip that made me feel old & like a work-a-holic, it would be how I felt the week before we left. 

I had a big wedding the Sunday before (the 7th), sessions every day preceding our vacation (including two less than 24 hours before we flew out), and a pile of things that had to be done ASAP (both with work & personal stuff).  Ironically, I think it took me a full week preparing to leave for only a week!  (Arranging a house sitter, washing, packing, dog sitter(s), etc.) 

Meanwhile, Adam was like a little kid, counting down the days until he was “work free” for 7 days, while I was secretly wishing I wasn’t even going!  Wishing I could just stay home and keep working instead of going on a Florida beach vacation!  (Adam says that’s definately work-a-holic symptoms… lol)  So, leaving LA in the wee hours of the morning to catch our flight in Houston for St. Petersburg, FL, I wasn’t really in any sort of vacation mood. 

But, I’m very happy to say that landing in such a gorgeous place as St Pete’s Beach by that afternoon, it finally hit me that we were on vacation!  So, I’m happy to say that we had an amazing time, an awesome 7 day trip (despite my jellyfish sting!), and I enjoyed every minute of it!

So I leave you with a picture from my phone that Adam took of me with my Starbucks in hand one morning on our way to the beach.


Until my blogging catches up on Thursday, enjoy!  (Or at least use it to scare away mice, bugs, etc.  🙂

Also:  A NOTE:

Big changes are in the mix over here!  So stay tuned!

  • My great new girl & first official associate for LJP, Mrs. Kristan Doucet, will officially be starting here this coming Monday!  With the addition of Kristan will come many great things!  I cannot express how excited I am to have her starting!  She will be like a “second set of hands” for the studio, helping with orders, online proofing & ordering, phone calls, errands, etc.  I already know once she’s in here & settled, she will make an awesome impact on studio & workflow!
  • With Kristan comes the addition of a large secondary workspace that my personal contractor (aka – Adam) has been working on!  (The studio is currently in disarray, but the aforementioned person has claimed the work should be completed within the next 24-48 hours!) 
  • A huge amount of albums have been coming & going throughout the studio lately, which has been wonderful!  However, I know there are still several that are in the works & will be coming soon for my girls that have been so very patient!  I will be scheduling album approval dates shortly.
  • Speaking of albums, I have also recently updated part of the album previews on the main site, so if you’d like to go by & check it out, feel free!  (It’s also the best place to get an idea of what some of the albums we offer are like, if you can’t swing by the studio to experience them first hand!)

There’s tons more, which I just can’t think of right now!  But lots of new things are coming soon…  🙂
