On Tuesday, the amazing Lora Carr drove all the way up from “Joisey” (ahem New Jersey) to do a spend a day mentoring session with us. She blew into New Haven in a cyclone of hot, hip mama meets lifestyle guru meets sweet n’ sassy all rolled into one.
In a word, she rocked our world. (Oh wait, that’s four words isn’t it?)
She came to learn from us, but I would be flat out lying if I didn’t say that I think it was us who learned from her. She is a smart & savvy business woman who has her stuff together. TO-GETH-ER! And I know she is going to go out and set the children’s portrait world…and far beyond that…on fire. And we just get to be the lucky ones who say, we knew her when.
AND we are doubly lucky, because this girl came bearing gifts! And how! She knew from our “Stuff we Love” page that Justin is a HUGE Stella (STELLA!!!) and Rose’s Lime Juice fan, so she hit us up with some bottles and some custom made bottle openers that her dad actually makes.
** Grooms: he can actually customize them for your groomsmen, so be sure to hit him up if you’re still looking for a gift that’s like the POLAR opposite of lame! Seriously! :)
And if YOU are interested in “Meetin’ the Marantz’s” and spending a day with us while cover all things business, photography and life (and we also throw in some Pepe’s pizza for good measure), shoot us an email at email@example.com to schedule your day!!
***Also, we have a WINNER in our Choose Our Adventure contest for our summer of tv on dvd goodness. This one was a real nail biter and came down to the wire, but by a margin of 19 to 18, 30 ROCK is our winner over Lost!!!! We will be starting with season 1 and powering through, hopefully just in time for the new season this September!
Lucky for us, we’ll have this GINORMOUS box of goodies that we just got from my bff Regina Holder down in Asheville, NC to carry us through. Regina you are the bomb. Ummm…dot com.
AND now the lucky winner of up to 5 seasons of their favorite show on DVD, and the first person to vote for 30 Rock in the comments, is Miss Stacey Rampata!! Stacey, just shoot us an email with your show and we’ll get you all hooked up! wahooo!
Ok, we are out the door for real for our next shoot down in NYC. But stay tuned because on deck we have: Jenna & Joe!! And here’s just a little sneak peak of all the goodness that’s in store there!
Whew! Can you tell I’m free-basing Starbucks right about now?? :)
