First off, happy mother’s day to all the mama’s out there.  Hope you enjoyed your day!

Apologies for the lack of recent posts – we’ve been busy! In a good way, of course, but I’m sorry we don’t update the blog as often.   So what’s up w/ DCPG (or “the Peeg” as my sister likes to call it)?  Well, in sad news, we closed down our rental studio temporarily.  We really loved having it, however, it wasn’t quite fiscally responsible to keep it at the moment.  But I have a goal to reopen in another location by the end of the year, so definitely stay tuned for that.   On the plus side, the weather has been staying clear and warm enough to shoot outside , so we haven’t been lacking in sessions. I’ll definitely start posting recent work on here again, but keep tabs on our Facebook page – it has ALL our most recent work.  Become a fan if you haven’t already 🙂

Internally, we have a very welcome change coming up.  My sister Carrie will be moving to Virginia Beach and also joining DCPG as our new Office Manager.  I’m still in the process of training her, but you’ll talk to her via email or telephone very soon if you contact us and I’ll probably have her updating our Facebook and blog as well.   Since I picked up shooting portraits, I haven’t had much time and, frankly, desire to keep up on the back end office work, so I am super relieved to be handing it over to someone that I trust and is way more fastidious (in a good way) and organized than I!

Now on to the good stuff —

Also…..Lower Wall Print Prices!!

We have decided to significantly lower our wall print prices.  Starting today, regular prints 11×14 and larger are now much more affordable.  Here are some popular sizes:

11×14 $65 (old price $100)
16×20 $150 (old price $250)
20×20 $180 (old price $300)

Please note we can make regular prints and canvas wraps in almost every size, including odd and panoramic sizes – just let us know and we’ll quote you!  If you have photos currently hosted on Collages.net, you should see the price changes immediately.  If your site has expired, but you are interested in purchasing a wall print, send me a message!

Weekend sunset sessions in May are pretty much booked up, so if you’re looking into a June shoot, it’s best to book now! Earlier sessions (between 9:30 and 2pm) are also available for both weekdays and weekends.   Also, DCPG will be “off” from May 27th to June 1st for Memorial Day weekend.

I will end this post with some of  DCPG’s favorite mom photos:
