2009: Recap / 2010: Now Booking!

Wow. What a year. While it was filled with more-than-the-usual personally challenging events, creatively it was the best. year. ever! What great therapy it was to be around doting, in-a-fog, so-in-love parents and their sweet little newborns. Thank you to my many friends and family who helped be a part of lolo design studio's inaugural year! I loved clicking the year away & getting to spend more time with each of you. It was such a gratifying experience, which I hope to continue and expand in 2010! Better get started on that... : )

So, with that said, I am going to open my "book" & start scheduling photography sessions from March to (early) November. However, Maternity & Newborn sessions will be available year-round. Alphabetography photos/frames are also available year-round.

I hope each of you has a safe & Happy New Year - thanks again for being great. And, lastly, what's a post without a picture?

Straight No Chaser

If you haven't already heard this men's a capella group, who originated at IUB in 1996, then click here for a little listening enjoyment. Or, even better - support their talent & buy an album for yourself or as a gift. They're great entertainers, so check them out on YouTube, too.

Hope your Holidays aren't too crazy & stressful. If they are, puh-lease sit down, have some hot cocoa in your favorite mug & think how blessed you are to {have a warm home, have loved ones around you, have a job, etc...}...Merry Christmas!

Christmas Mini Session - R Family

These are my darling neighbors...I've been able to photograph them not once, not twice, but 3x this year - how fun! Here are some images from our Christmas session last weekend...These kids just have the best smiles & biggest blue eyes. Miss K was smiling from start to finish, which made my job really easy...and, hopefully less stressful for Mom! Although, she is a very laid-back person to begin with, so I'll just stick with the "it made my job really easy" theory.

Maybe this weekend I'll work on taking my own family's Christmas card pictures?

Sisterly Love

I hope you enjoy these pictures - I do! This family is near & dear to our hearts, as we go waaay back...Their mom & I as far back as kindergarten! Not too many friends can say their relationship is still going strong since kindergarten... Miss A & Miss O are just too cute & it's fun to see how they all (our's & their's) interact. Maybe one day they can say they've been friends since birth?

We took these pictures at West Baden Resort in French Lick, IN. It's a pretty remarkable place & has undergone extensive renovations/expansion in the past 10-15 years. With a casino, winery & indoor waterpark within a couple miles of each other, it's definitely worth a weekend stay for the whole family.

Thanks for letting me grab these moments in time for you, Rasche family!
