Blog Resurrection! – A Leap Day Miracle & Leap Day Wedding Special (2 for 1)

Hello blog, passersby, prospective clients and dear clients who have been with me for 5+ years,

*stretches*  Whooo… talk about a leave of absence.  I have been so busy updating our Facebook fan page, that I have neglected the blog.

I am officially one of those photographers.  Throughout the absence, I’ve continued to pay for my blog, to update it’s software ($$$) and invest in new ideas and themes (and shoot some amazingly gorgeous weddings, seniors, models, babies, people, life)  But that Facebook monster ate me alive.  I have a love/hate relationship with Mr. Zuckerburg’s creation.  It’s awesome to tag people and share photos so easily, but they also have a terms of service agreement that says Facebook can use your photos pretty much any way they want, until the end of time basically.  It’s like a deal with the devil.

So without further adieu… WE’RE BACK BABY! =o)  Not only with preview/teaser posts go on Facebook, but higher quality photos will go up on the blog.  Which means, bigger, better, no ugly FB compression.  Yay!!!

To usher in this post, this “resurrection” we are celebrating Leap Day with a wedding special!

Straight from Facebook:

Tomorrow (Today!) Feb 29th, is a leap day, for 2012 is a leap year.  One day only… for any 2012 or 2013 wedding date (that is still available); $1,600 will get you my talent, for your entire wedding (prewed-during-reception), DVD of fully edited gorgeous photos, a personal print release to print with, 2 16×20 enlargements for your new home and an engagement …session so your new home is filled with stunning photos of you and your new wife/husband in gorgeous non-wedding clothes. =o)  There are two RULES. 1. You MUST contact me tomorrow to be eligible for this deal, and you must book no later than March 31st.  It takes a lil time to have meetings and sign contracts and all that fun stuff. =o)  Happy Leap Day!  (If you know someone engaged or almost engaged, forward this to them and make their day/week/life)  Thanks! 417-880-8357   (All submissions must be received by 12:01 AM, PST)

In honor of the blog relaunch, I am extending this until Friday.  Contact me on the website, contact form here on the blog, or directly by phone or email ( Include your name, wedding date, phone number and a short message.  Thanks everyone!

Sullivan Family Photos – Red Vine Studios – Springfield Missouri Family Shoot

Goodbye winter, hello spring!

And hello to ALL of my loyal blog stalkers who havn’t had much to stalk lately.  Between moving one week before Christmas, and trying to get business back on track by the end of January after a cue of mishaps with the local cable company, I decided to stick to Facebook for a while for all of my online social needs.  But there’s something even the mighty Facebook cannot do, and that is HUGE, beautiful photos.  And I have a TON of updates for you to wade through.

Today we’ll start off with a recent family shoot (one of many).  This is the Sullivan family.  I went to college at Baptist Bible College, Springfield MO with them many a year back.  They are awesome people and they have one of the cutest little boys I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  I promised them some awesome blog love, so let the photos commence!

 Hey there Sullivan Family!  

Then after we nailed our formal shot for the church they minister at, we got comfy and fun!

This is ‘lil Ryan… watch out girls! 

I love this photo… I wish I had this one of my kiddos!

Such a big boy… and he loves to ham it up for the camera.

A new black and white action that I’ve been playing with… you’ll be seeing a LOT of it through out the year.

It was a glorious day at Nathaniel Greene Park in Springfield, Missouri.  Windy too!

Dad got some one on one time with Ryan.

Then it was momma’s turn!

Then Ryan put on a lil show… lol.  LOVE this face… =o)

And then this is literally the last frame I captured that afternoon, and what a grin.  Such a pleasure to photograph
this awesome family dedicated to spreading the truth of the Gospel to anyone and everything they meet.

I hope you have enjoyed your stay here at the blog home of Red Vine Studios.  Be sure to leave this family TONS of blog love, lil’ Ryan can’t read yet, but yeah… he loves hearing what you have to say.  He’s got mad people skills already.  And if you haven’t booked your Spring session with Red Vine Studios yet… don’t wait.  Spring dates are booking up and I don’t accept a ton of separate shoots during the summer, when I’m dedicated to my wedding clients. 

Call me today and tell me what makes your life tick, and I’ll tell you about our spring photo specials.  417-880-8357
