So I’ve fallen a little behind on my Christmas cards…as most of you know because you haven’t gotten them yet.  They came in yesterday and I’m going to be busting my hump to get them out today.  However, I realized when they came in that I didn’t order enough…BY LIKE 100!!!!  So we are going to do a little redesign and those of you who don’t get yours in the next couple of days will be getting a Happy New Year Card.  Of course I will also post them both on the blog for all to see as soon as it’s time.  If you would like to be on the Christmas card mailing list, please send me an email with your address and I will be happy to send one over to you….but you’ll be in the 2nd wave of cards.

 

Safe travels to all this week.  Merry Christmas!



Miss Christian Bush!

Jennifer and Brandon have been waiting for Christian for a long time.  Jennifer and I used to work together (pre this crazy business).  So when I went to see them in the hospital, I had to take my camera to snag a few shots of the sweet family.  Just so you know, Jennifer is one of those girls that if you’re a woman that has been pregnant, you hate.  She was so cute!  When I last saw her, which was only about a month ago, she still looked the exact same except for a basketball at her belly.  Then when I went to see her, she looked great!  She wasn’t a hot mess like the rest of us.  She’ll be back in her true religions  by next week!  I hate you J.Bush ;o)!

This is the only time that she made a peep.  It was the sweetest cry.  She was protesting having her diaper changed.

In case you can’t read what her shirt says, it’s possibly my new favorite 2 chix shirt (which I’m a HUGE fan of).  It says “You had me at Epidural”.

Jennifer and Brandon were so great.  They were already pros at handling her.  She was also a little different from other newborns, she didn’t really care if she was all swadled up or not.  She was cool to just hang out.  She will make a fine girlfriend for Noah!



*****VERY IMPORTANT VOICEMAIL MESSAGE*****

I found out yesterday that I haven’t been recieving my voicemail.  I spoke to someone who told me that she had been trying to get in touch with me for weeks and I had no idea.  Sure enough, my voicemail wasn’t collecting any data.  So I went to the AT&T store and they had to reset my voicemail and internet.  I saw that I had 20 messages!  When I went to get them, THEY WERE ALL GONE!!!!  We tried to restore them somehow, but it didn’t work.  I have NO idea who has called and left a voicemail over the past couple of weeks.  If you have tried to get in touch with me without success, I’m very very sorry.  Everything is working now, so please call me and leave me one more message and I will get back with you this time.  You can also shoot me an email to my new big girl address, meggie@meggievelasco.com.

I’m so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused anyone.



Miss Raeruth’s Bat Mitvah

Filed under: Events, Individual Shoots

I met Rae and her dad and brother at the Volunteer Ministry’s roast of Coach Pearl back in May.  David then contacted me about doing Rae’s Bat Mitvah.  I haven’t been to one since middle school!  I always remember them being a blast though.  Tons of teenagers hyped up on sugar and caffeine….SIGN ME UP!!!!!!!  I had such a great time with them.  We met on Friday and did a few shots of Rae by herself.  It just so happened that her 13th birthday was the next day, she totally doesn’t look 13.  After that we headed to the synagogue to get some pictures with her family (who came from all over the place) and then dinner at The Orangery after the service.  The next day I met them at the Knoxville Museum of Art for the party. 

I had a great time spending the weekend with y’all.  SHALOHA!!!

So with this Pay It Forward project, I agreed to take on a total of 3 shoots.  2 of the shoots are taking it to different areas and fred and Julie are keeping it here in Knoxville.  Julie is a very talented photographer based out of Knoxville.  I met her and her fiance Fred at their house in South Knoxville to shoot them and their 2 babies, 4 legged babies that is.  You can find her work here at Julie Roberts Photography.  If you live in the Knoxville area, get in touch with Julie because she has 30 days in pay her session forward to another photographer and their family.

Ben and Beka – Pay It Forward

Ben and I went to college together and his wedding to Beka was one of my first weddings ever.  They now live in West Palm Beach and Beka has started her own photography business, Kallima Photography.  We were able to work out a couple of hours where our paths were crossing while traveling for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  I have shot several things before them, but I ended up getting their’s done first because of a surprise that was, well, you’ll see.

If you live in near West Palm Beach, are a photographer, and would love for Beka to photograph you and your family, make sure you get in touch with her ASAP.  I know she’ll get her PIF quota filled quickly.



Logan and Brooke’s e.session

Filed under: engagement, Engagement Sessions

I met Logan and Brooke a couple of years ago at my husband’s 10 year high school reunion.  After I met them, Adam turned to me and said “now that’s one wedding you’re gonna wanna get”.  I don’t think I even knew they were dating, I don’t know, I met a lot of people that night.  At any rate, it was a fun day when they got in touch with me.  We had a great time at our meeting and I loved hearing their story.  They had dated some in high school, but their path’s led them in different directions.  Everyone is so happy that they’re FINALLY getting married.  One thing that Logan said has been stuck in my mind since we met.  He said that he’s loved her for almost 13 years and he can’t wait to call her his wife.  I KNOW!!!!  I’m a little teary too.  

First we started in Old Concord.  I just love that area!

Then I thought that it was only fitting to go to the scene of the crime, Farragut High School.
