Welcome to a new year, which means newly engaged couples. Congrats! Red Bricks has a great year planned ahead of them with some exciting weddings already booked along with some other fun and exciting sessions that I see looking ahead. I hope everyone had wonderful holidays and have a prosperous new year. Happy 2013 to all previous clients and new clients to be this coming year.
As always a huge reason I became a photographer! Two wonder ful military wives and military mommas came to have me capture a moment for them to pass onto their husbands overseas. What is even more important to me is when I hear how the solider receiving there free book is surprised and says “How did you do this being able to hid this from me, I love all the portraits and can’t wait to be back with my girls!” Along with Operation Love I just joined two other volunteer photographer programs and can’t wait to photograph a session for each. Once I have I will defiantly share moments from them! Hopefully I will be able to share soon!
One thing about being a photographer is you never know what you are going to be photographing and it changes each day! In the last few months I have gone from doing portraits as never forgotten Mother’s Day gift, portraits of the love between sisters and their longtime friend and dog, Buddy. As well as capturing the Haas family poolside to sitting at the fireplace in there lovely home. The adventures keep going to photographing my pride and joy Luci in the studio to try to live up to my “mom” and “photographer” duties of I must take a lot of portraits of my child since it is my job. Oh how I wish I had the time to live up to my Bebe Collection of portraits throughout the year of her!
I enjoy photographing high school seniors, as everyone has different styles and personalities. I feel with all my models I can bring out there styles and attitudes in the portraits! We are always looking for new models, as we are getting ready to start photographing the 2012 Seniors! SOOOO seniors to be, parents of seniors to be take a look here!

Although the ground was full of snow and it hasn’t stopped raining, Red Bricks Photography had some glowing brides the past few months! Along with some wonderful kiddos and crazy wedding parties we photographed some great weddings. Nothing like flying in for your engagement portraits and to see your sweet. One of our summer weddings gave us a tour of the runway while we took some thrilling portraits of Blake and Anna! With weddings you never know what you are going to get into!
We have so many cool, new things in the works right now!! I know this is going to be a long post…sorry! LOL We are updating a lot of stuff on our website for 2011 and we’re creating some new samples for some fun new things we’ll be featuring later this year but I’m in need of some cool people to model for us in the meantime. I’m willing to negotiate our normal rates in exchange for the ability to get these photo shoots done in the next few months and use the images in our advertising and other new sample products. (It will be the deal of a lifetime for a few lucky people!!) I’m sure that you or someone you know falls into at least one of these categories so spread the word! Here’s everything I’m looking for:
Trash the dress – if you’ve seen the trash the dress website and want to book a fun session for this year, e-mail me! We’re looking for more TTD couples to feature on our website, blog !
What is a Trash the Dress Session?
Now that the wedding is over, you have two choices of what to do with the dress. You can suffocate it in a plastic bag and hope that your daughter will want to wear it in 20 years, or you can put it back on and have some fun.
Do I have to really trash it?
Of course not! It’s just a fun session to do when you have more time than the day of the wedding or a situation you wouldn’t dare do the day of the wedding. Sure you can get a little risky with it, like splashing in water or riding horseback in the snow since the fear of getting it dirty is over, but you don’t have to.
Can I still do a session if you didn’t shoot my wedding?
Absolutely! We can certainly add a little spice to your wedding collection even if we didn’t cover the actual event. This is the perfect opportunity to add a different style to your wedding photos and some out of the ordinary locations.
Boudoir – we’ve recently started advertising our boudoir images but even though our style is “tasteful boudoir” not all of our clients are comfortable with their images being posted online. Yet many times when women e-mail me, they want to see samples of our past work…catch 22. So if you’re someone who has wanted to do a boudoir session and you don’t mind your images being posted on our blog, website and other forms of advertising, e-mail me! (Don’t worry, no nudity is involved)
Maternity – if you are 6-9 months pregnant and showing the baby bump, e-mail me! We need some more new maternity samples to show for 2010. And don’t worry, I’m a pro at removing stretch marks and unsightly things so don’t let that stop you from having an awesome maternity photo shoot! LOL
Cool baby nurseries – along the same lines…if you are preparing to welcome your new baby into the world and have an adorable nursery set up for him or her, e-mail me your pics and I’ll be choosing a few nurseries to photograph soon to help promote some new products we’ll be offering for our clients and their families!
Pets – if your pets are your babies and you want to make them famous, here’s your chance! Our new website will be featuring a variety of pets and the funny things we capture them doing. Email me if your pet is ready for their close up.
Seniors – we are looking for juniors who will be seniors this Fall and/or current high school seniors who would like to be a senior rep for us. We would LOVE to do a photo shoot with a whole group of seniors – preferably a fun, outgoing group of friends – who also wouldn’t mind being filmed by a film crew. Anyone interested?
Boudoir portraits: Our boudoir sessions are $250 and include myself (Mary) as your photographer. We can do your shoot at your home or at a nice hotel (hotel fees are extra) and we allow an unlimited number of outfit changes during your 2-3 hour photo shoot. We shoot an unlimited number of images during your shoot too and then post all of them on a password protected website so that you can view and order images afterwards. The boudoir package also includes 20 retouched 5×5’s of your favorite shots in a small black album, perfect for wrapping up for your hubby! We will typically arrive a few minutes early for boudoir sessions so that we can decide on where we’ll actually shoot and take a look at your clothing choices. It’s better to start with a soft look and go more dramatic with clothing, hair & make-up as the shoot progresses so we’ll help you determine the order of “looks” with your various outfits.
Our TTD photo shoots include a 2-3 hour photo shoot at up to 3 locations with an unlimited number of images taken during your photo shoot. All images will be posted on a password-protected website for online viewing & ordering. We also include 1 11×14 and 2 8×10 enlargements as well as a small black album of 20 retouched 5×5’s of your favorite images! For all of this it comes to $275! (Drycleaning, preservation and floral fees extra)
Come see us Oct 29th! It is for a great benefit too!
Dayton Does It Again!
This Year It’s “The Soup Nazi”
Dayton, Ohio: Last year, A Doctor’s Heart was proud to present Bob Milne, America’s premier “boogie-woogie” pianist headlining a Patriotic Concert held on September 10th. He brought the house down with his rendition of New York, New York depicting the events of September 11, 2001 and raised over $5000!
This year, it’s “No Soup For You!”. Remember “the Soup Nazi” on Seinfeld? Larry Thomas, now an American icon, will host a “Soup Off” in Dayton on October 29th. All proceeds from this event will be used to benefit the work of ‘A Doctor’s Heart, Inc.’ entirely.
Yes, ‘entirely’ is the right word. Area restaurants are donating all the delicious soups. Local sponsors are providing all the signs, publicity, photography, and volunteer servers. And best of all, The Doubletree Hotel in Miamisburg is donating the complete use of their banquet facilities, kitchen, and serving personnel.
Your $12 donation will not only get you to a great evening of fun and a complete soup dinner. More importantly it will allow A Doctor’s Heart to fund fish farms, clean water wells and missionary housing in remote areas of the Amazon River basin. Our goal is to have 400-600 people join us in helping improve the lives and health of these deserving people. Remember, this is a fundraiser. Feel free to donate much more than $12!!
“Soup Off” attendees will be treated to screams of “No Soup For You!” as the Soup Nazi bangs his ladle and serves as judge and jury for best soup in a “Soup Off”. Who better to judge a fabulous selection of soups contributed by area restaurants and friends than the Soup Nazi! As an added treat, autographed ladles and pictures with Larry will be available for a modest additional donation.
Cash Bar, door prizes, a variety of soups and lots of laughs will be available from 5:30 – 8:30 in the Main Lobby, Lobby Bar, Patio and Ohio Room at the Doubletree in Miamisburg. Please park next door at Cub Foods, and enter through the Doubletree’s Main Entrance.
Come out and support this worthy charity event. Enjoy the entertainment and a complete soup dinner for a $12 donation. For sponsor or ticket information call 937-912-9459 or 850-567-6451 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“A Doctor’s Heart is a small group doing very large work in the Amazon River Basin,” said Larry at a media event recently. “Every dollar they raise will be spent on medicine and eye glasses, wells, and houses for Missionaries serving the native tribes of the Amazon River Basin.”
