Steele Family {Westminster, SC Family Photographer}

I had so much fun with this awesome family in the park.

After spending a few minutes with the Still’s I could tell that they love to have fun, play and love each other beyond words. Joe (Dad) is a total “cut up” and kept everyone in stiches!!

Here are my favorites from this session…..

Happy Fall!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Blessings, Lezlie

Chloe

This little beauty queen holds a very special  place in my heart. In fact she is like my 3rd daughter… love, love, love her! 

 We had SO much fun at this session. Chloe was full of sass and it made the photos from this session even better than I expected! I was even able to capture some cute “blooper” shots :) .

Here are a few of my favorites, but I tell ya Chloe made it hard for me to decide. This girl ROCKED this session and there was not 1 bad photo :) .

I saved the best for last….

I wish you the best of luck Miss. Chloe and I hope you win every crown!!

Upcoming Events {Walhalla, SC Photographer}

Important information about upcoming events between now and the end of the year

2012 is slowly coming to an end. I can’t believe it is already August!!

Below is a list of things that are happening in the studio.

October 20th Silhouette artist Patti Rishforth will be back in the studio. This is the perfect time to come and get some one of a kind Christmas gifts. Patti offers not only silhouettes but ornaments and jewelry as well. This is the weekend of the Octoberfest so you will also get to enjoy some yummy food and shop from local stores and vendors. Don’t forget that I offer gift certificates…They make great stocking stuffers :) .

Fall mini sessions will be November 3rd (if needed I may add another date). I am SO excited about these sessions!! If you have already contacted me about booking one of these sessions I will send you a message soon with all the details :) .

Santa will be in the studio on November 24th & 25th. Saturday is almost booked solid but there are still spots open on Sunday. This is the same weekend as the Clemson/ Carolina game so for those of you who will go to the game you will probably want to book a spot on Sunday since Saturday morning is full.

Weekend dates are booked for the rest of the year except for a few Saturday morning session that will have to be in the studio. I still have some weekday afternoon spots open if you need to get those family portraits taken in time for Christmas.

The last day to order prints and have them back in time for Christmas will be December 7th.

I can not thank you enough for your support and continued business!! I would not be where I am today without you!! You guys ROCK!!!

Be sure to message me to reserve your spot for one or all of the upcoming events :) .

Blessings,

Lezlie

Personal “Mommy” Blog ~ Chore Charts {Walhalla, SC Photographer}

Chore Charts

 If your kids are like mine getting them motivated to help out with chores is like pulling teeth… ugh! I saw something on Pintrest and it got my wheels to turning. I have no idea who the original ”pinner”  was but thank you for the idea :) .

I took photos with my phone of each step. The quality is not so great but if you are like me a visual is always a good thing :) .  So here we go….

This is what you will need. Wooden door hangers, wooden clothes pins, paint, brushes, newspaper and something to pour your paint into. I bought all the supplies you see here at Wal-mart.

Paint the wooden door hangers whatever color you like and let them dry.

Now it is time to decorate :) . I went basic with my girls charts since this is something I did on my lunch hour at work two days this week :) . You can even let your kids decorate them!!

Now it’s time to decide what chores you want your kids to do.  The chores you see here are for my oldest daughter.

Place the clothes pins on the chart and your ready to go!

Believe it or not my girls were so excited when I told them about these chore charts!! My oldest took off to her room and started working on moving her pins as soon as I told her how it worked. She even helped her little sister out. This act of kindness made my heart smile and then lead to her asking me if we could add another pin to her list….WHAT!?!?! How awesome is that!?!?! The pin she wants to add to her chart is being helpful :) .

My girls LOVE to tattle on each other and of course that drives me and my husband…. CRAZY! So I guess you noticed the no tattling pin?? I have to brag on my girls of course that pin did not get moved last night but each girl tattled only ONE time each last night!!! That is a HUGE improvement and I am SO proud of both of them!!!  

I hope this is a start to a more organized and ever happier home!!

For those of you who decide to do this for your kids I would LOVE to see your charts and here how your kids do!!

From time to time I will have a personal blog that I think some of you will enjoy or could use in your lives :) .

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with the ones you love!!

Blessings,

Lezlie
