There are some really cool things happening around here…

As the summer has come and gone (I blinked) and the leaves start to change, I can not help but want to burst at the seams with some really fun changes happening around here!  I am super excited to introduce a new face that you might see either here, in the 8th Street Marketplace (BoDo) studio or soon, down at the 6th Street Studio.  Phil White, formerly of Phil White Photography has teamed up with me to get www.CsiPhotoDesign.com and the 6th Street Studio up and off the ground again!  Throughout the years, I have been managing (somewhat inadequately) the CsiPhotoDesign division all by myself, trying to balance that AND Cherished Images, and I am happy to say that maybe a portion of that will be taken off my plate and I will be able to focus on what and WHO I love.  My Cherished Images clients!!  Watching children, families and babies grow and change is my favorite thing about what I do, and I hope to be able to focus more on that in the very near future!!  Here’s to the future.  Looking forward to showing off some of what we’ve done both with Cherished Images and CsiPhotoDesign.com!!

Labor Day…

Now, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I came back to the studio after the long holiday weekend to find that every business that possibly had my email address, sent out a “Labor Day” promo email.  Almost 900 (mainly junk) emails later, I actually get to “get to work”.  It’s super frustrating.  I like to hear from vendors occasionally, but it won’t take too many more days of promo like this, before I’m going on an inbox witch hunt, where many of these vendors will be going straight to my junk email folder.  This is the main reason why I’ve personally chosen not to send out “advertising” emails.  Now on the other end of the spectrum… I’ve also heard that clients would like a more efficient way than FB to keep in touch, so when there are special promotions and charity events, they can be informed of them.  So, where is that happy medium?  Just curious as this was fresh on my mind after this morning’s email frenzy…

Ok, here I go….

Hum… this whole blog thing.  I’ve resisted for the longest time, however with my youngest child now starting her first year of kindergarten, 5 days a week- I figure I have no excuse.  Please excuse my potential mess ahead of time.  I honestly and truly have no idea what I’m doing, as I have never blogged before, and gulp… I’ll admit it… I don’t even read or follow any blogs.  However, I have been informed that I am NOT the majority and so I vow to work on making progress of keeping things more current than “just on FB”.  I plan on adding to and properly setting this up, sooner than later, however today is my birthday and I’m going shopping.  That’s all for now :)
