"thanks-giving-back" family sessions - golden gate park, san francisco

commentator: ed

we had 8 photo sessions in one day. WHEW!!! if you guys remember, monica and i decided it would be great to give back to the community and deposit some extra good karma because we've been oh-so-fortunate and blessed this year... in the spirit of giving, we went ahead and organized 7 mini family sessions at the music concourse in golden gate park, with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the american diabetes association and the salvation army! it was a hit and sold out in less than a week!!!

and it's all because of you all, who have continued to "blog stalk" us and spread the word about our services. from the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you, thank you!

*******for those who missed out and for anyone interested in booking us for a family session in time to create holiday cards, we have one session left for this year since we are no longer taking bookings until 2008. check out the one-hour photo session we donated to the solano community college foundation's holiday auction (you may have to scroll down the page to see the item in the link), which will end on 11.30.07 at midnight. this, along with the other fabulous items up for auction, would also make a fantastic christmas gift for loved ones!***********

monica and i are very fortunate to be surrounded by so many positive people. my very good friend joey and his fiance, crissy drove out from dixon to help us out with the shoot. my favorite brother also came to shoot some candids and behind the scenes stuff. everyone helped carry equipment, including monica who has recently become addicted to "guitar hero 3" on wii (check her out practicing on the "lightstick")... lola even guarded the equipment from strangers barking loudly at them in her cute christmas outfit. every one i believe had a chance to hold my lightstick during the shoots. thanks guys!!! heh heh heh...

this giving back thing can really make a person feel really good. for all those who participated in the program, thank you. because of you, we're able to donate a handsome amount.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the
american diabetes association and the salvation army! woo hoo!!!
