Full of it!

I am full of love this Christmas morning for my Jesus! Today is all about Him and celebrating his birth. I'm super duper excited for Jonah to wake up even if he does interrupt my mad blog updating I'm doing right now! I can't wait to see him open his presents! I gave him one last night, some little slippers to wear with his new jammmies, and it was adorable to watch him carry around the torn paper and little box. I took some photos and plan to take a MILLION more today so photos to come of my sweet little love of my life. I posted the below video on my Facebook page and thought I would share it with you as well. I just love this song, it makes me remember what today is really about. Happy Birthday Jesus and Merry Christmas to you all!!!

CJP is changing....

I am contemplating changing the name of my business.... In 2010, I have plans to totally re-vamp my business and to "brand" it as you pros are calling it. I would LOVE to use a Dove theme because Jonah means dove in Hebrew. My friend Paul had a suggestion of "One Dove Photography." It's kinda catchy, but I just like using my name because I feel like it's better advertisement. We also both came up with J Dove Photography, which I also really like! What do you think? Any suggestions? Leave me a comment please! I will be emailing everyone in my address book if I do decide for sure to change the name and will also be posting a post on this blog. After that, I will be re-naming the blog too so be sure to stay tuned to my blog if you want to continue to follow me.

Thanks to all of you for your support! I have been so very blessed to have the clients that I've had and I know future clients will be just as amazing!

exciting things comin'!

So, there are some exciting things coming from CJP! What I am most excited about is that hopefully in the very near future I will be upgrading my camera, lens, and computer!!!! (insert mental picture of me jumping up and down) Also, I will be taking a 5 week course starting January 20th (Thanks Mom for the birthday gift)for people who love photography and want to take better pictures which you can learn more about by clicking here. I am beyond excited, I feel like things are going to start moving in the right direction for me and this so-called "business." Yippee!! I really haven't taken the time to learn even the basics, I just kind of depend on my passion for photography and my natural "talent" to assist me, but I've been wanting to do more for a while now. Also, Sharon Clark of Smitten Photography did some family photos for us Nov. 3oth and they are AMAZING! Click here to see our post on her blog! I hope to be as incredible as she is some day! Hope everyone is doing lovely!
