New Years Eve 28 days from a due date and with a sweet two year old buddy at home aren't quite as exciting as they used to be:)  A quiet evening at home catching up on our netflix is just what we need after surviving the crazy wedding season we had and the overwhelming(in a good way) holidays.  Joe has been off work this week and we have begun 'Operation: Baby Mode' and have been getting our much neglected home to-do list accomplished.  Sweet baby boy #2's mom is not quite as on the ball as I was with sweet baby #1 Sharpe!  His poor room is not even about finished and we have yet to round up all the baby items that are sprinkled all around our attic and all over the county at friends and relative's houses.  Not to mention the ole "my house must be spotless and the carpet cleaners have to come, and the garage has to be cleaned out and the windows washed...and all the 10 thousand things I wanted to get done this year now have to get done in the next 3 weeks" list.  We are getting there, just at a snails pace!  Joe is a saint, because since we have waited so long, I am pretty much zero help...I can't even put on my shoes!  Excited to have him home a few more days to knock some of this stuff out.

As I have been thinking about our year, I can't wait to make our annual year-end post-but that will probably be later this week or early next.  Need to round up our favorite images and really reflect on all of our blessings.  I have, though,  been meaning to post these particular photos for forever as a sorta "before and after" and today was the perfect day because these two celebrated their anniversary.  9 years ago today I shot my best friends wedding.  My sweet friends Teresa and Paul were married on the florida coast after an 11 day engagement(if I remember correctly) and I drove down to be with them on their very special day.  As I look at these photos, quite honestly they crack me up-in the sweetest way possible...but at the same time I absolutely adore them .  They are a reminder of why I love what I do.  I love being with two people in love on one of the most important days of their life and capturing that raw emotion.  I loved it then.  I love it now.  They are also a reminder, especially at the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one to never give up on chasing those big dreams. I don't think even in this moment with them on a beach I could imagine where I would be today in my photography journey.  The "photographer" in me cringes at my lack of photo knowledge in these photos, but the "storyteller" in me loves them as much as any photo I take today.  Thanks, Teresa, for reminding me of these images and for being such a trusting and supportive friend all of these years!  Happy 9th anniversary!

Workshop Update:

Love taking pictures??  Want to do a better job capturing your sweet family/friends/vacations with that new DSLR you may have gotten for Christmas or have just had for  forever, but definitely don't know how to use?  There are a few spots left in my workshop which is NEXT SATURDAY, Jan 11 at 9am at our home studio in downtown Concord.  Tuition is $175 and I would love to have you!  Email me for more info: lindseyleelancaster@gmail.com

Happy New Year!

 

I can't believe it has been so long since we had our last workshop!!  We held one right after the baby was born, and then things got so crazy with weddings we weren't able to get another on the calendar...so we are so pumped to finally made a date happen!  Joe and I get so excited about teaching folks how to use their cameras and GET OFF GREEN. You aren't using your camera to it's full potential...and you don't even know it yet!  Don't worry, we are here to help!:)

The DETAILS:

February 9th. 9AM-12:30PM

*This is a beginner photography DSLR workshop.  Any kind.  Just as long as it is an Digital SLR.
*What if you don't have a digital SLR? Borrow one and come join the fun! The class is for people who have never "gotten off green" when using their camera to those who have read the manual but still don't completely understand what the heck an f/stop is. We will get you off of green and completely in manual mode. We will cover tricks of the trade and all the little helpful hints to help you get great photos of your kids, vacations, sports, family time, etc! It is not a class to become a professional photographer or for those who already have or work with a photography business(mentoring sessions are available, shoot me an email!)
*There will be lots of one on one time and plenty of time for questions- then we will all practice what we have learned with a LIVE model.

*Tuition is $150 and spots are limited. Spots are confirmed when tuition is received.
*If you would like to reserve a spot, email me at lindseyleelancaster@gmail.com.
*The class can be given as a gift.  Makes a GREAT Christmas present for the camera lover in your life.
*Location:  The Lindsey Lee Photography home studio in Downtown Concord.
Feel free to email with any questions!
Here is a quick sneak of Katy and Marc!  Can't wait to share this week!
 

Still here. Still pregnant.  Yup, we are officially T-7 days until my due date.  We are super excited(but surely over being pregnant!)!!!!   Lots of folks have asked about my doing a maternity leave.  I will not be taking an "official" maternity leave, more like a "laying low" time, so still feel free to email me with questions concerning wedding coverage and session information.  Just give me a tad more time to respond than usual- we will have our little buddy here just in time for Christmas!

Before I go a little missing in action, I was bound and determined to get another D-SLR Workshop on the books.  The next class will be February 11, 2012.  This February class last year was completely booked, so be sure to reserve your spot today.  It is the perfect time to learn the camera you are going to get for Christmas!  It is a great class to learn how to take amazing photos of the people and things in your life that you love.  You have the camera, now let Joe and I teach you how to use it!!

Ok on to these cuties!!!!!  I told you I had the best Christmas Card Mini-Sessions this year, and I wasn't lying!  This family is adorable!  These two little twin boys keep their mom and dad on the go, but I know they wouldn't have it any other way.  Loved getting to finally take your picture!
Hello hotties! Mom and dad, go you!
 

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We had some great weather and Joe and I shot a beautiful wedding on Saturday and I could just feel the change in the air, which was so nice! I am hoping my sweaty photographer days are coming to an end here very soon! Wanted to update you all on the dates for Mini-Sessions and The Workshop. I am super pumped about both of these events coming up! When I started planning them back in early august I thought to myself how ridiculous it was that it was so far away, yet here we are! Just a few short weeks!

There are still spots left for The Workshop happening on October 8th. This will be the last workshop until well after the new year. We will have a new little baby to take care of, so I am thinking early summer might be the next one. Make sure and grab one of these spots so you can take fabulous photos over the holidays!
Additionally, there are just a few mini-session slots left:
1 spot left on Sunday,Oct. 9: 3:00 time slot- EDIT: No longer available.
A Few Spots on Monday, October 10(Columbus Day): 2:45-4:45 available.
1 spot left on Sunday, October 23rd: 2:45 time slot.
Email me about any of these openings: lindseyleelancaster@gmail.com. You can link back to the older posts to find out more info about either or just feel free to email any questions!
Now, so exciting a cute new product that I am offering. Iphone cases! Yes, I am a apple snob. Yes, I love all things apple. I can't help it! The products are just amazing. And, quite frankly, they just make me happy!! Here is an iphone pic of the latest case I designed and made. I meant to take a "real" camera photo, but life happened and I just got an iphone pic of a new iphone case before shipping it out. Regardless, I think you can see just how fun these cases are! Image the possibilities.....your favorite wedding image, picture of your kids, or pet? Seniors- your favorite senior picture?! I think these would make a great Christmas gift, too;) Every case is custom designed, so the possibilities are endless.
Next up, Ginny and Ricky's wedding. Get excited!
 

I am super excited about the next workshop! This will be the last workshop of the year and before new baby arrives! It will be held Oct. 8 in Concord, NC- location TBD. Joe and I love putting on these classes and seeing the "lightbulb" moment when our "students" get how to take amazing photos with their DSLR's. Here is what you need to know:

It is an opportunity to learn how to work all those buttons on that fancy camera you got for your birthday or Christmas. It is not a class to become a professional photographer or for those who already have or work with a photography business.

I look forward to seeing you there!
