I need your help!

First, let me start by saying thank you to everyone who has made this holiday season buzz around here!! As things slow back down, I'm amazed at this growing business! So thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Secondly, I need your help! For an upcoming project, I need a willing model (K through 6th) who plays and has his/her own violin, cello, or viola who would be willing to come in to the studio for a 30-45 minute session. Will give some free prints to sweeten the pot!

If you or someone you know would be interested in this, please share this info and email me at taylorpointer@gmail.com. Please and thank you!

Merry Christmas,

Edited to add: The position has been filled!! Thanks for your help, Mayson! Pics coming soon!

Mini Accordion Fold Brag Books (Part 2)

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing, food-and-family-filled Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving for all those reasons and more!

I have a picture of the 3x3 square mini accordion fold brag book to show. These are SUCH great quality!! My client picked them up and immediately texted me and said "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Thanks!" She capitalized L-O-V-E three times! THAT'S serious love, y'all! And I don't blame her! My peeps will be getting some of these this season too!!

Folded up (it has a magnet that keeps it closed):

The inside back:

The front and inside front:
OK, I'm glad I don't photograph books for a living, but I think you get the picture! No pun intended! HA! (Yes, I've drinken too much caffiene today!)

Sequence with Commentary

I had to share this FUNNY sequence of pictures. It was near the end of our shoot (take 2) and Hubby went to fetch the suckers we had been using to bribe the girls. This is the commentary that ensued.

Despite the above shenanigans, we got some good ones! I was tempted to use these three!

These two wore me out!

Thank you, Miss Ella for helping me unveil the new wall!!

As you can see, the new studio wall has some hints of sand, dark blue, and brown. We also have some corners to work in!! (Now if I could talk Hubby into giving up his man room for the sake of more photography space, we could really do some fun stuff!! Let's not hold our breath!) :)

Album pages

I created a gallery for a client of sample album pages for her little girls. Now these are really girlie, BUT I have all kinds of papers to make custom albums. They are great for seniors, one year old albums (with pictures from all your sessions), family pictures, or just an album from your session.

I'm got 12 pages added to the gallery to give you an idea of how the pages will look. They are named by which pages are side by side. For example, album A and album A.1 are side by side when the book is open. Then there will be the opening page and the parting page that will be similar. The pages are hinged so that the book lays flat when it's open.

www.tpointer.photobiz.com/cart password is 'pink'. The solid blocks are where the photos are inserted.

The books come standard with 20 sides (ten pages). And you proof all the pages once they are done. The cover of the book is custom. You can add text anywhere throughout the book. We can add to some the pages or we can subtract from some them. The whole book is completely customizable and made to flow in terms of color, layout, etc.

Albums come in the following sizes: 5x7 and 8.5x11 horizontal, 8x8 and 10x10 square.

Mini Accordion Fold Brag Books

Right now through the end of the year, if you buy one brag book, get two more FREE! Helllloooo, grandmother gifts!

They come in wallet size ($35) with 14 customizable panels or a 3x3 square ($45) with 10 customizable panels. You mini accordion fold brag book comes complete with a leather cover or customize photo cover.

Keep on the look out for a picture of one of these bad boys!

Don't forget our studio wall is getting painted!! I'm contemplating a day for mini sessions in studio to help break in the new wall. Anyone interested in something like this? If so email me!! taylorpointer@gmail.com

Hope you had a great Halloween!! After all our Halloween festivities, there was 'no place like home'. :)

MORE Holiday Card Templates!?!

We now have more lovely holiday card templates. Some are more traditional, some less traditional! I love them all and couldn't resist!

Also, my studio wall is getting painted and should be ready next week! I am beyond excited about it and can't wait to post pictures! It's needed something fresh in there for a while now!

Anywho, back to the templates! (I have been so A.D.D. lately! I think I was in the middle of an email when I started this post!) They are named for their colors this time! These all have matching gift tags too (not shown)! And my apologies for not sampling them complete with pictures. I wanted to get them posted ASAP for your viewing pleasure! Remember, if you buy 3 or more packs of Holiday Greeting Cards, you get a 50 pack of matching gift tags for FREE!

Fun at the square!

This family had some wagon fun at the square! (They also had fun without a wagon!)

I just wanted to show a quick sneak peak! Sorry there's not more!

Nicole sent out a One Year Announcement and showed off the cuteness that is her son, Jackson!

She was so sweet to sent me some feedback and I thought I would share along with his card now that they have all been sent out!

"Hey Taylor, Just wanted to let you know that everyone has LOVED Jack's one year photo card! Great Job!" - Nicole from Sacshe, TX

Leopard Fun

I had been itching to use these fun leopard print papers and when I saw these precious outfits, I had totally designed their one year announcement in my head! Isi and Oli's mama loves sending cards out more than I do! She sent a birth announcement, a 9 month photo card, and this 1 year card! I know she made lots of friends and family smile!

P.S. I think I saw arboretum staff repainting the awesome grungy blue rod iron black. I wanted to scream "NOOOOO!" But I refrained. I'm sure black will be nice for pictures too...

Teagan's Birthday Invite

Teagan rocked her birthday pictures this year! Price and I took her to the square one afternoon while big sis was at (pre)school. She did so good without any big sister distractions!!

I wanted to share her invitation to her train party! I have lots of black and white and pink papers that would make a really cute untraditional holiday card!

Jackson and Madison

I wanted to showcase some of the pictures from this family shoot. Granted it was in two parts. Big extended family and then just the wee ones. Big thanks to Crystal for sticking with me despite 3 or 4 weather reschedulings. It was worth it though!

I love this one of the two kiddos! I'm just going to embrace that unfortunate lens flare like I meant to do it!

I love this one of Jackson with his Boom Paw. I told them to just interact and be silly! So Boom just pulled an ear out!

Miss Maddie all pretty in pink! Love those curls!! By the way, we decided she is Dovie's other twin (triplet?)

And the J man, looking all too studly with his button down and tie!! Baseball makes Hubby want to try for a boy. Well that shirt and tie makes me want to try for a boy! Your welcome for that little tid bit!

Arboretum with Friends: Part 2

Arboretum with Friends, part 2 was a huge success! And by success, I mean the kids had a blast stomping through mud, hay, and soggy pumpkins, and the ladies had fun visiting with one another and enjoying each other's children!

Let's see who was in attendance, we had the Golding brothers, Cason and Chase. Cason is still the doting big brother as you can see!

Jackson! I'm threatening him with a 'wet willy' in this one - it get's him every time, to my complete and utter delight! More of the J man soon!

Sweet Victoria! She's at that age where she doesn't want to stop for even one millasecond. But I still captured her sweetness!

Collin! Twin B, for those keeping track!

Brendan! Twin A, again for those keeping track.

And of course my two. Here's Teaggie Weeggie/Wiggles/Weegie. She just celebrated a birthday! My baby is two years old and talking like you wouldn't believe! It amazes us daily all that she can say! And it seems like with each day she adds a word to length her sentences. She gets her point across with ease these days. And Mama couldn't be more happier about that! Praise Jesus, can I get an Amen! She wanted 'Chucky' for her birthday. We debated on having her party at Chuck E Cheese, but decided the park would be better. We did go to 'Chucky' on her actual birthday. More to come on Weegie's two year festivities!

And my big girl! Presley Poodle. She thinks she's a princess, y'all. She wants to live in princess dresses all day everyday. It's a fight every time we have to dress to leave the house. Sometimes I'm not up for it and I let her wear it. Don't tell, but currently I have all the princess dresses hidden until after Halloween. She's going to be Dorthy, because Mama spend money on a Dorthy dress - and searched high and low for one that fit (thank you, Craig's List - I'm going to give back to you one day! Seriously I have a pile of junk for you.).

If you meet with a play group and want to have picture made, let me know and I'll give you more details and special pricing for your group!

Thanksgiving cards!?!?!

Guess what is popular this year? Thanksgiving cards! (I know I was like uhhh....I barely get my Christmas card out before Christmas!!) I aim to please, so I wanted to show you one!

Let me know if you want to create a Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year card from pictures from your recent session! Print them in metallic and really give them that wow factor!

In other housekeeping news, I still have some available openings this year, so let me know if you want to book something! I'm excited to find out and post the winner of the Bloggy Give Away! Don't forget it ends tonight at midnight!!

Arboretum with Friends: Part 1

Since we've been having such great fall weather (in between some rain) and because my membership to the arboretum was going to expire at the end of this month, and mama needed her money's worth, we planned some trips to the arboretum. And because everyone couldn't go on the same day, we planned two parts to the fall fun at the arboretum. Again, I'm all about getting my money's worth!
Part one was with Elliana and her mama, Robyn on Monday.
(I was totally going to pick one favorite. But I couldn't - with that sweet smile, and those incredibly thick, dark eyelashes, and that sunkissed face with those beautiful eyes.... I had to share.)

Part two was today and there were lots of cuties!! So please, as always, stay tuned!
