An Unexpected Change of Plans
I came down with a case of acute appendicitis on Monday afternoon and after spending the night in the ER, I had surgery yesterday morning to remove my appendix. I am recovering at home now, in much less pain than Monday. Unfortunately, I will be canceling my trip to Maine. There is just no way I can comfortably site in a car for 24 hours, plus I'm on dietary and weight restrictions for the next two weeks. My doctor specifically asked me what I do for work, and said that my camera with a lens attached is too much for me to carry until after my post-op appointment.
Due to this unforeseen medical emergency, Orange Cat Co Photography will be temporarily closed until August 25th to allow myself time to recover. I apologize for the incredible inconvenience this is causing. My appendix tried to kill me.
I will be visiting family in Maine for a week in August! If you are in southern Maine/ New Hampshire and would like a photography session, please send me an e-mail or fill out my contact form. I would love to work with you and your family!
Overland Park Art Show
Orange Cat Co Photography was a featured artist at the Overland Park Art Show this past weekend! We braved the wind and 90 degree heat for two days, and I learned a lot about art shows and how to move forward with my landscape photography in the future. Overall, I am happy to report that Orange Cat Co Photography's first art show was a resounding success!
If you missed Orange Cat Co Photography at the Overland Park Art Show and would like to see my work, stop in at Shop Small Saturday on September 3rd at the Brew Ha Ha Coffee House in Overland Park. Orange Cat Co Photography will be there!
Mrs. S reached out to me through my Better Business Bureau Profile, she wanted to have family portraits taken. We decided to meet up at the Nelson-Atkin's Museum of Art to take advantage of the architectural backdrops as well as the natural scenery. The S family is a close-knit family and you can just see the love bubbling out of their portraits. An absolute joy to work with, and the portraits came out beautiful despite the cloudy skies. I wish the S family all the best.
Parkville, MO Family Portraits
I can usually tell how a photography session is going to go within the first few minutes of meeting my clients. The R family climbed out of the car smiling and giggling at each other. I immediately knew this was going to be a fantastic session. M, the oldest daughter was visiting from out-of-state and decided to purchase a photography session for her mom for Mother's Day. The last time the family had family portraits was before the younger daughter was born. They were a bit overdue. Grandma also came along for pictures. The fun-loving family was open for everything, and offered tons of their own suggestions. The end result? Beautiful family portraits with just a touch of mischief and laughter. Perfection.
I am very excited to announce Orange Cat Co Photography has been selected as one of 60 local artists featured at the Downtown Overland Park Art Fair on June 24th and 25th! Look for the orange canopy, I will be selling landscape photography prints, photography sessions, and gift certificates. I hope to see you there!
Kansas City Senior Portraits
H. is a graduating senior and wanted to have Senior Portraits with an urban feel. After a bit of discussion, we decided that doing a split venue photography session would give her just the look and feel she was going for. For the first half of the photography session, we went to a recently closed bridge downtown to for some industrial/graffiti backdrops and for the second half we went to a nearby sculpture garden for some architectural backdrops. I am so happy with the end result, and H. has told me that she adores her portraits! Congratulations to H. for her upcoming graduation and best of luck on all future endeavors!
C reached out to me for headshots for use on her employer's website. C works in telehealth and she wanted a portrait to present herself as professional and approachable. We completed the photography session in right C's office in the comfort of her own home. She has a large window that let in a plethora of natural light, and her portraits reflect her kindness and passion for her field.
