As we all welcome another new year, it’s been a quiet & simple time to reflect over 2015, and past years, both personally and professionally. For those of you reading who may not know, we lost my dad in a fatal car accident in November. Everything you can imagine about a horrific movie with that story line has basically been our lives since, and we all feel the deep hole in our hearts from instantly going from seeing the greatest man nearly daily to an abrupt nothing.
My dad was an entrepreneur when he was younger, and even loved sales and working with clients until the end (he was on his way to work) and I know he was proud of my work & business. He would tell me how he would talk with his own clients and explain how he had his own business years ago, but his daughter does today and does a much better job than he did. He always got a chuckle out of that. That meant a lot to me and while there are so many things I had yet to tell him, or do with him with our babies, I could not be more thankful for getting to tell him, just a couple weeks before the accident, how much he helped make my business successful.
All of that said, as I moved forward with 2016 I have gotten the chance to take a good look at Jenny Cruger Photography and continue to evolve my most favorite parts & introduce a few new things this year. I have a deeper appreciation for photographs as in the end, that’s truly all we have left and you never know when the end will come.
– The Collective (enrollment in 3 or 4 sessions over an 18 month time period) continues to be the most popular choice among parents & will continue on through 2016.
– Grandparents. Maybe it’s not until your babies lose their grandparent and go running through the house for them when they hear a car pull up, but this year more than ever, your parents are so important to me. If you would like to have them stop in during your session
for a portrait, please talk to me about that this, as I would love to be sure every baby has a portrait with their grandma & papa.
– Grandparent Bundles: Choose luxury fine art heirlooms for your home & gift high quality professional prints to your parents at bundled pricing.
-Beautiful custom packaging & other studio goodies are making their way to 2016.
-New gorgeous linen proof boxes to hold your proofs & USB that are included in every full session.
– The Mama Workshop (for Photographers!) Join me in Nashville & Chicago this year
These are just a few of the new or continued things I am so excited about this year, but most of all I can’t wait to photograph your growing, special, and beautiful families.
To 2016… for my dad!
Happy New Year
(These are two of the very few, and last, photographs I have of my dad with my babies….who were 6 years old (not 3 years old) and 20 months (not a newborn) at the time of the accident. If you read nothing else here today, take photographs of your parents with your children.)
Jenny Cruger Photography specializes in organic and natural newborn, baby, maternity, family, and child photography in Nashville, TN and surrounding areas including but not limited to Franklin, Brentwood, Green Hills, Spring Hill and Murfreesboro.
I would love to begin planning an intimate & organic maternity and newborn portrait session for your baby. My most popular choice among new parents & families is enrolling in The Collective; three or four portrait sessions over an 18 month period and available to limited families throughout the year.
