Here's what is coming soon...

Thanksgiving was filled not only with fun times with family, but tons of portrait sessions too! Here's what will be coming up on my blog in the near future.

The Jannett Family
Becky's Senior Portraits
The DeWitt Children

Madeline is 8 months!

Madeline turned 8 months a few weeks ago... but we'll pretend it was right on the money for our portrait session. Madeline is one of my baby plan clients, so I get to see her adorable face four times out of the year! Next up will be her 12 month session... yikes!
We incorporated Hambrick's Tree Farm into our session since the holidays are upon us. I took pictures of the whole family too, but I'll keep them a secret in case you're on their holiday card list. :) Here are a few of my favorites from our mini-session together!

I have to include this one of Madeline's big sister, Emma. It was difficult for her not to steal the show from Madeline. Their parents sure do have beautiful genes! :)

I'm thankful for my clients.

What are you thankful for this year? Among friends and family, I need to include my awesome clients who have made 2009 amazing!
Which got me thinking. Stores offer after-Thanksgiving sales for the whole weekend, right? Why should I limit the savings to you for only Black Friday?! I'm going to extend the accordion albums below through Sunday at midnight. You know... because I'm thankful for you!
If you're intersted, see the post below, paypal me the money, and I'll get in touch with you next week about details.

Black Friday Sale!

I'm SUPER thrilled to introduce a new product that I will begin offering officially in 2010.

Accordion Albums are wallet-sized and perfect for storing in your bag to show off your favorite session images (up to 13, to be exact)! Available in sets of two or three, they can even be that extra little something for Christmas this year! What grandparent wouldn't want THAT for the holidays? Or mom... or dad? Accordion albums also have an awesome feature of a magnetic closure, so there's no worries about getting it damaged in your purse!

Don't they look awesome?!!!
So. Between 4:00am and 12:00noon, if you're interested in having your own set of accordion albums, you'll need to pay me through paypal. A set of two albums is $30. A set of three albums is $45. My paypal address is Only payments made between 4:00am - 12:00noon will be accepted for this awesome deal! Get a start on your holiday shopping right here at The Bond Between Us Photography.

A weekend of portraits!

While preparing for Thanksgiving, I haven't had a chance to fully edit any session images from this past weekend. My camera was insanely busy taking pictures, and I'm loving what I've seen so far. I promise to come back next week and show off more of each, but I wanted to quickly post a favorite from each session.


Be sure to come back to my blog later this week... I'm going to be having a Black Friday sale!

Giving Is Awesome... 2009!

Last year (in this post) I mentioned an amazing opportunity that photographers across the world started in order that they might give back to their communities. The 2008 version of Giving is Awesome gave over $565,000 worth of custom photography to families across the globe. Can you believe it?! This year, their goal is to reach even more people.
I am definitely getting involved again! Last year's session gift was humbling for me as a photographer, and being able to give back like that is awesome!

Here is how it works -
You know someone. You know someone who’s experienced a tragedy or illness, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone might not be thinking of themselves, but who would cherish the moment this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.
You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography – $450 worth, to be exact. The winner will receive a portriat session, a CD of all edited digital files to fully decorate their home and be able to share with friends and family, and a 20-paged 5x7 custom album featuring images from their session. It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season!!
Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a FREE portrait session too (prints are not included)! What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules -
* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be worthy of this gift. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
* The nominee must reside in the Valdosta area. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
* You must e-mail me the full story : The deadline for submitting entries will be midnight on December 15th, with the winner being announced on December 22nd. Get nominating... I can’t wait to read all of your entries!

Can boys be beautiful?

I'm not sure if it's an appropriate description for a boy. But, if they can be... these two are! I met up with the N family on Sunday afternoon. We wandered around their grandparent's land and had a bunch of fun. Here are some of my favorites from our session together!

And one last image... because it makes me smile, and because I swore I'd put it on my blog, and because it encapsulates what it means to be a boy!

Back in the Day Bakery

During our trip to Savannah a few weeks ago, my friend Lindsi and I found this AWESOMELY delicious heaven-on-earth shop named Back in the Day Bakery. We had gone through a huge ordeal of getting to Savannah after hitting a deer and being stranded in Brunswick the night before, so we figured that we deserved something sweet. :)
Little did we know, however, that it was Happy Hour when we went! Buy one, get one half price... you don't have to ask me twice! Here are some images that I took in between bites of our amazing treats!

If you are ever in Savannah, you It might be even more important then visiting Forsyth Park. :)

The G Family

Beautiful location.... check.
Beautiful family.... check.
Lots of laughter.... check.

A few weeks ago, I met up the G Family. The first part was just for Kristin and Joey, but the second part was for Mr. and Mrs. G to get portraits taken with their grandchildren for holiday cards. We spent a lot of time walking around the pecan fields and hanging around the old family house. Here are my favorites from the session!

Out of Town

Just a quick note to let you know that I will be out of town from today through Sunday afternoon. I'm headed to Savannah with my friend Lindsi from Lindsi Jones Photography, and I'll be assisting her in a wedding on Saturday.
I should have internet access this weekend, though my time available might be sparse. Feel free to e-mail with questions or inquiries on sessions, but realize that I might be a little delayed in responding.
Make sure to head back next week for more posting though. I've got a great family session from last weekend to share, as well as images from this weekend's wedding and random images from Savannah while I roam the scene. :)

Some people have kids.

Smarter people have dogs. Bwahahahahahaha!
No offense to parents out there. I know my day will come when a flutter in my heart will be present and lead me down the path to parenthood... but until that time, I will give my love to my dog.
Kristin and Joey are the cutest twosome ever. She's sweet and kind, and he's so energetic and spunky. And they make me smile!

The S Family

The S Family has been one of my biggest supporters through my adventures with photography. I love seeing my clients grow, and this family is no exception. Our photo session this Sunday afternoon was at Grassy Pond in Lake Park. I had never been there, and was pleasantly surprised at what a cute area it was!

This image is just TOO CUTE not to share... sorry, Dad! I think you were asking for it! Years from now, Miss M will cherish this picture with you!

Jenn : Maternity

Jenn's mom called last week to say that she needed to schedule a maternity session. Jenn's sister, Erin, had a baby two years ago and I was lucky enough to be her photographer. I felt honored to be asked again to document such a wonderful time in their family!
As luck would have it, I had a cancellation on Saturday morning, so we made arrangements to meet up for her maternity session. It was a beautiful morning for pictures, and I'm so happy with the outcome. Here are a few sneak peek images!
