Announcing....BIG News...BIGGGG!!

Hey gang...sorry I've been away for so long...I feel as though I have missed out on so much! I have been very busy and will be posting about some cool things very soon...I will also be checking in with my "peeps"...very, very soon! I've REALLY missed everyone!! Funny how that happens, eh!!

In the meantime...I have some v-e-r-y, VERY, V-E-R-Y exciting news...YEA, for those of you watching American Idol...I am here to announce the NEW..."REAL" AMERICAN IDOL...well, she is to me!! Please check out my daughters new business...she is a professional photographer and has decided to go out on her own...she is approaching this from several different aspects...not only does she do portraits, babies, senior pics, families, mother/father to be, gorgeous albums and anything in between...she does a series of "alpha" letters...were you can buy any letter you want and frame it or make a word...she also has vintage photographs, landscape and nature photos available to purchase. I love her work...I know...I know...she IS my daughter...but I have always known since she was a little girl that this is a passion of hers, seriously I cannot remember a time when she did not have a camera of some sort in her hand! PLEASE read about her in her information section. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that she has a real "eye" for photography...even when she was in high school her photography teacher took me aside and told me..."Jackie truly does have an eye for this! You can teach technique...but the passion and eye come from within AND she has IT!"....well, I'm still beaming from that compliment and am continually amazed at what she captures through the camera lens!! After she went on to college those compliments and awards just kept coming...of course she won't talk about that...b/c she is modest and very hard on herself...but...HEY!! I'm her mama...I CAN DO THAT...till the cows come home...RIGHT??

PLEASE go check out her website here... or check out her blog, it will lead you to her site...

I think you will enjoy every aspect of her site...let her know I sent you to see her...she will be thrilled!!! She is just starting out and has many more ideas and photos to come...but she really wanted to get this up and running! She has been working really hard on this for some time and has tried very hard to be comptetive in her pricing and in the services she offers. I am praying for all kinds of success for truly is something she has loved since she was a's not just something that she thought would be fun...she truly lives for this...and has for some time! I am always so proud of anything she does...but I can truly attest to her talents and know if you purchase from her or hire her for a session or event...YOU will NOT be disappointed!!

Please feel free to pass this on to ALL your friends!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

P.S. For those who have been asking about my header, it was designed by my daughter...check her out it's one of the many things she can create!

Susie Q said...

Teresa!! This is wonderful news!!

I know you are so proud. Heck, *I* am proud too and I only know her through you!! : )

She is living my dream and I wish her many years of success and happiness doing what she loves. It is obvious she has been given the gift of great talent & an artistic eye. Blessings to her and many warm hugs to you. I can see your beaming smile from here!! It lights up the world!

I have missed you sweet lady....You are so special.


Hey! I am actually first to comment??

Susie Q said...

While I was rambling on Dawn beat me to the first commenter position!! *laugh*
But heck, second is pretty cool! *smile*

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Teresa. Her website is amazing!!! Her TALENT IS AMAZING! I love, love her work and love that she even has a vintage section! Teresa, what a wonderful accomplishment. I wish her so much success...she does have the natural photographer's eye that you just have to have!! xxoo, Dawn

Tonja said...

Oh. How. Exciting! I am so fond of vintage anything. Your header is wonderful. I am anxious to go to her site and look at her prints. My son is a wedding and portrait photographer. It amazes me how he get the things on film that he does. They just see differently than we do. Adam's website is listed on my sidebar. I know you are proud of her. And I am sure this is a little unnerving for her. It is always a little scary putting yourself 'out there' for the world to critique, but true talent is a God given thing and should be celebrated! I just know she will do well! I'm off to explore now!

Hi Teresa
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment. Not sure whether it's allergies or just a cold - how does one tell the difference? :-)
You must be so proud of your daughter. Isn't it wonderful to watch our grown children come into their own?
Have a wonderful week.

When our children are happy we are happy! And your header~ I love it too..very nice! Hey, I looked for you at Canton last week, I just knew someone would walk up to me and say...Hi, I'm "T"...can't wait for that day!

Hello, I found your site a while back (but never commented) through Cherry Hill cottage and thought I'd congradulate you and your daughter. This hits close to home because that is exactly what my brother is studying. He has such a love of photograpy that I can't wait for him to get started too. I will certainly visit her site. By the way we also live in North Texas.
Best wishes!
