So I finally took the plunge and bought a website last night. I've been wanting to forever, but never found one that I really felt I wanted, but I think I found the one. So, MANY changes are coming to Alyssa Lillegard Photography and I am so excited. Not only is there a website coming, but prints, and new products. Once I get into the swing of prints I will be introducing things like art canvases of your photos (which are yummy) proof prints, coffee table books, press printed products, and more. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am. It's about time these things happened. I can't wait to give you all the best of the best. :) So that is what is going on here.

Like I said yesterday, I have a wedding this weekend that I am so excited for. I'm so glad that it is almost the weekend. About time. I hope you are all having good week!

God Bless,

Found This!

Before every session I listen to some relaxing music while I drive to the session location, its a little ritual of mine to help me get in the creative mode. I also say a little prayer before I get out of the car that God guides me and helps me make art out of the client's life. Today I found this Photographer's prayer while perusing blogs.

Oh God, as I bring my subject into focus and prepare to make each portrait, never let me forget that I'm creating treasures for some family, a keepsake for loved ones. Make me sensitive to the qualities and virtues of others, that I may draw out into the light the beautiful radiant belongings of their hearts.

Help me to be an artist, collecting the beauty of every soul, the glow of youth, the gentleness, the laughter or tears of each life that is precious in Thy sight. Deeper than a means of livelihood, give me the perspective to see my photographer's art as a service to others, making life richer and more memorable.

And, dear Lord, between the lights and shadows, the ups and downs and the rolling years, keep me from getting out of focus or off center, so that my life and work may be framed with dignity and colored with contentment ...

I think I might just start doing this prayer. It seems perfect!

It's a busy week for me. I'm photographing Chad and LeeAnn's wedding on Saturday, so I should have a few pictures up at the beginning of next week. I'm also getting my donation stuff ready for auction, and getting ready to finally put up my website. Busy, busy, busy! Have a wonderful week!

Finally a Session!

This is Reliance. Cool name huh? Her parents and I ventured down to Lake Sacajewea today for a little session and some fun on the playground. Well, Reliance wasn't a big fan of having her picture taken, but the photos that we got are great! Thank you so much Cassie and Geof for letting me take pictures of your beautiful family!

Isn't she beautiful! Have a great day!
