What Happens in Vegas

There is a popular ad campaign for Las Vegas that says "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas". ...I beg to differ (this time).

Last Saturday, we took a long weekend trip to the city of lights both for a break from our work schedule, and just because we love the restaurants and entertainment there.

I was feeling like I had a slight cold coming on, but I was not going to let that stand in the way of us having a relaxing, good time.

The second day of our trip, my condition worsened and I developed a high fever, chills and cough that made it hard to sleep through the night. Needless to say, I spent the remainder of the trip on my back in bed with blankets piled high to stave off the chills.

Tammi called my doctor from Vegas and scheduled an appointment for the morning after we returned home. It couldn't have come sooner, I just wanted to feel better.

My doctor confirmed what I already knew. I had pneumonia.

So finally after almost a full week of being sick in bed, I'm up and on the couch. That's quite a milestone considering I have only wanted to be in bed, buried under the down blankets for the last five days.

Fortunately, Tammi was able to reschedule all of my appointments and she's been running the studio solo all week. (Isn't she great?)

I plan on returning to work this Tuesday and slowly working my way back up to speed. I'm thankful that my being out hasn't interfered with our holiday delivery schedule. Tammi has everything under control!

So, this time, What happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas ... It latched on tightly and came home with me!

A Brand New Look

Even though we have only had our Blog for a short time, I decided it was time to change the "cookie-cutter" template look and go with a more custom look to reflect our unique "brand".

I took our new business card design and incorporated that into the layout.

I'm really excited about the new look and expect to probably tweek it a bit more in the coming weeks. Please let me know what you think.

Who's the Celebrity?

Here's another look-alike... Of course I think Tammi looks much better than the celebrities do :)

Just for fun

In our spare time, Tammi and I like to relax and watch a little TV. Two shows we enjoy are CSI and Las Vegas, partially because they both take place in one of our favorite towns (Las Vegas) and because of the cool gadgets they use for facial recognition, etc.

While I was tooling around the web tonight, I found this website that compares your photograph to celebrity photos and tells you who you look like.

Check it out....

If you want to try it with one of your photo's, give us a call and we can email an image to you.

Operation Smile Update

Thanks to your generosity in October, we were able to donate $500 to Operation Smile.
During October, we participated along side other member studios of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) in “Family Portrait Month", a national fund-raising effort to benefit Operation Smile, which helps children who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

PPA will present Operation Smile with a check at our National Convention to be held in San Antonio Texas This January.
