    One of my pet peeves in life is holiday merchandise appearing in stores more than a month before the holiday actually occurs. Particularly, Christmas stuff appearing in stores in early November. You know it happens…a lovely holiday reduced to dancing Santa’s on shelves, before we’ve even had a chance to eat any Thanksgiving turkey. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas as much as the next guy, but I just want to enjoy my holidays in the order that they come.

    But. (That’s a big but right there.)

    I kind of, sort of, just a teeny-tiny little bit get it this year. Because this year…well, I own a business this year. And I still feel like I’m being a sellout, contributing to one of my pet peeves, but I have to bombard you with something Christmas-y. In August. Exactly FOUR WHOLE MONTHS before Christmas. I apologize…but it must be done. I am giving into the madness.

    But. (That’s an even bigger but right there.)

    There is a very good reason for my submission to the holiday-advertising-powers-that-be. Because, well…if I waited until December to do anything Christmas-y, none of you lovely, lovely people who want me to take your Christmas card photos would get to send your cards out before Easter rolls around.

    So, this is me giving in.

    It’s August, and I’m officially open for Christmas card photo shoot business. Bring it on! 🙂

    Shoot me an e-mail ( or give me a call (321-271-7226) to book a shoot today.
