Thanks for visiting my blog! If you're a client looking for your sneak peeks, note that I normally have them up within a few days of the session, but at times it may take me up to a week. Remember to click on the picture to see it bigger, and feel free to nab these for use on Myspace, Facebook, or emailing to friends and family (but note- these are web-sized images, and not suitable for printing. Also, please do not remove my watermark. I'm proud of these images and want everyone to know I took them :) I make it small and discreet- and I'd rather not have to put a big, obnoxious watermark across them instead... So please help a girl (& the rest if my clients) out and respect my copyright! Thanks).
If you're a prospective client, make certain to visit my website for more images and info. There's a link in the sidebar. Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a session: gypsyisledesigns@yahoo.com. Thanks again for visiting and enjoy your stay!

NEW BLOG!!!!!!

Well... it's not *quite* perfect yet, and it may change a bit before I'm completely satisfied with it... but I'm finally ready to announce my new Blog :) You can reach it here: NEW Blog. This will be my last post on this one. I won't change or delete anything here, but I won't be making any more updates to it :)

Please come check out my new blog and let me know what you think! I'll be adding more content (and lots more BIG pictures) VERY soon. If you run across any problems, please let me know via comments or an email: gypsyisledesigns@yahoo.com

I look forward to seeing you at my new Blogging home! (and, since I am taking December off to work on my Biz... I should have the new wedding and Boudoir site up by Jan. 2009... only 6 months later than I originally planned :) I'd feel worse about it except I had so many wonderful clients keeping me busy! Thanks for sticking with me!)

Brent... 2009 Senior

Working with Brent was an absolute blast! We were supposed to do a beach session, but because of all the storms our beaches are a bit messy (and VERY windy) right now, so we put off that part of his session until later in the year. We almost cancelled, but I convinced his mom to let me do an urban session instead... my favorite kind! I hope you guys love these and will agree that these are as good or better than the beach would have been. And I can't wait til part two of our session!

The Green's

The Green's were a wonderfully fun family to photograph! Thanks to Hurricane Gustav, our session was almost canceled... but they decided to brave the wind (plenty of it!) for a fun beach session. The kids had a blast looking at jellyfish and running up and down the beach, and mom and dad were up for anything. Thanks so much for letting me be a small part of your family vacation- I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Kim and Chad- a wedding

Kim and Chad are an awesome couple from Hattiesburgh, MS. We tried meeting several times... but in the end, it was just 2 weeks before her wedding when we were finally able to sit down and go over everything. I was thrilled that they were so handsome and that Chad was such a great guy- obviously in love with Kim and willing to do anything to make her happy (shouldn't all grooms be so accomodating?). Unfortunately, a little storm by the name of Tropical Storm Fay was threatening Kim's perfect beach wedding. We weren't sure if it would be a hit or a miss...but to be safe we went ahead and scheduled a pre-wedding shoot with just Kim and Chad. It was a beautiful afternoon and I am so happy we were able to do it. TS Fay ended up being mostly a miss... but did provide some jittery nerves, dramatic skies, and a spattering of rain just as the bride was walking down the aisle. But a little rain never deterred the fun and everyone enjoyed the ceremony and the party. Kim and Chad- thanks for allowing me to document one of my most memorable wedidngs :) I can now say I've done a wedding in the rain- and it was a blast!

Ms. Kristin pt 2!

I was hoping to debut my new blog with this post, but I don't want to hold off sharing these any longer. Kristin- thanks again for being an awesome hostess and for running around scouting with (and for) me. I REALLY appreciate it and love you to death! Enjoy :)
