*ON VACATION* / by Julie Cruz

Yes, it's that time of year! Just like every year, I kill myself in August, September, October and November so that I can have everything edited, wrapped up and take the remainder of December OFF! Although I am "off" (of shoots and editing), I AM still replying to emails and booking for 2013, so don't hesitate to email me if you'd like to book for 2013! I know my poor blog has been neglected since October (yikes!), but I was busy shooting, editing, and being a mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend.... but those of you who follow Lot116 on Facebook were still seeing teasers here and there :) I'll try to blog again next week or so, but for now here are a some photos from some of the shoots I did during my "crazy season". I was lucky enough to see many familiar faces, as well as meet many new ones!

ALSO, just a quick reminder that I *DO* offer GIFT CERTIFICATES (in any denomination (or for full sessions)! So for those of you who say you "wish you could afford me"....rather than having your family give you lotions, candles, robes, pajamas, mugs, frames, etc AGAIN this year.....you can *HINT/ASK* for Lot116 GIFT CERTIFICATES to go towards a session (mini or full!) in 2013!! Or ****HUSBANDS****, if you want to be the best husband EVER....not only give your wife the gift certificate (which will already blow her mind), but show up to the shoot all happy and excited! ;) Skip the purse, shoes, jewelry, etc and give her something that will capture memories for a lifetime....YOUR family, YOUR children, YOUR life ♥ Holy smokes, I should write Hallmark cards, right? P.S - Don't wait until the last minute to purchase gift certificates (give at least 1 week (in case of mail delays) to mail the gift certificate) ♥ Thanks!
