Is anyone else in denial about it already being 2008? I just can't get used to writing 08!
I am pretty pumped about the new year, though, and I've got LOTS of changes in store! At the end of this month, I'll be releasing a new website design with updated galleries, as well as a new blog design, new online ordering system, and new pricing (2008 brides, that means if you want to lock in my current rates, you MUST book by the end of this month). Keep your eyes peeled ;).
Another exciting venture starting in 2008 is that I am teaching photography course at Missouri Baptist University! I'm really excited about the opportunity to share my love for the craft with students who are looking for a practical application. I have an awesome group of college students, and we're off to a really great start. The goal is teach the students to see better photos by shooting regularly and participating in lots of critique. Their first assignment was to start a blog and post a creative self portrait. So check 'em out. Tell 'em what you think. And be sure to check back often because I have a feeling that these guys are going to do some pretty cool things :)

Thanks to everyone who voted in the 19 pieces of flair contest! It looks like #13 is the winner of the contest! Jason and Lindsay, who's wedding I shot in beautiful Negril, Jamaica, will be receiving a large canvas wrapped print of the winning photo from their wedding. When the canvas arrives, I'll be sure to take post some photos of it's awesome craftsmanship :). You all will want one when you see it :).
Oh, and happy new year! There are a lot of exciting changes in the works this year for Lisa Hessel Photography, including a new website(s), logo, and some more blog redesign... so keep your eyes peeled :).
