Getting down to business

These past two months I have been refueling, getting ready for Spring and getting down to business.  Starting in March there will be a lot of exciting new changes to Strawberry Snails Photography in regards to the business side.  We have some pricing changes coming, website changes, new packages to offer, and a brand new way of handling the business side, I have even written a business plan (Dr. Earle would be proud). :) Most of these changes will not be visible, but hopefully these changes will ensure that Strawberry Snails Photography is able to capture your important moments for years to come.

P.S Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope everyone had a great day.  I got to play with my new ring flash today; here are a couple of my test shots.

my hubby got me wine, roses, and chocolate...the perfect valentine

My Work is Getting Published!


I am super excited to tell you about this project!!

Recently I had the honor to work with a leadership mentor of mine, Dr. James V. Earle.  I have worked with him at the University of Pittsburgh for over 8 years, and he has been an amazing resource and guidance to me, so when he asked me to take his “author” picture and the cover shot for his upcoming, soon-to-be released in March, book I was elated.  Not only was this a super fun photo shoot, (I mean it is not every day that I get a chance to run around Heinz field), but it is exciting to see my work in print on the cover of a book that I know everyone can benefit from.

This book is a great read for leaders in all types of organizations, even Photography!!!! I highly recommend this book for anyone is a leadership role.


Here is the cover of the book 100 Yards of Success, photographs taken by Strawberry Snails Photography.

Check back later for another blog about the photo shoot itself, and more fun photographs from the shoot.  Please check out more of Dr. Earle's work by visiting his blog at www.jvearle.wordpress.com , follow him on Twitter www.twitter.com/jvearle and "like" him on Facebook www.facebook.com/JVEarleConsulting.

SSP Updates!

Hello Strawberry Snails Fans!!! I want to first thank you all for your support these past couple of months.  I greatly appreciate all of you!  I am new to this business and I am learning things each and everyday, my number one priority and goal is to make beautiful pictures that families adore for generations.

I have a couple of Strawberry Snails status updates, as you can tell from the appearance of my blog, Strawberry Snails Photography,  is undergoing a makeover.  I am redoing my brand image and so over the next month or two you will notice more changes to this blog and the SSP website www.StrawberrySnailsPhotography.com. I hope you all like the new look as much as I do.

Also, the other update I wanted to share is that I will be updating my prices for the 2013 year.  Yes, this means higher, but it also means that I will be adding more choices, print packages, and a variety of special products that I know you will love.  After all once you have the perfect image you will want to show it off in a variety of ways.  Our products include some really fun items like brag books to fit in your purse/wallet, photo key chains, and professionally bound albums just to name a few.  Check back soon on all the details.

In the meantime, if you book a session (deposit paid) by February 28, 2013, you will receive current 2012 pricing.  You can book your session for anytime in the 2013 calendar year, and the 2012 pricing for both the session and PRINTS will be honored.  So if you are thinking about Senior photos, birthday party events, or family portraits, book now and secure our current pricing!!

I look forward to working with all of you, and capturing your moment.
