Be a Part of Something Big

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

There was once a little girl named Layla Grace.  She lost her battle with stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer at age two last month.  Her presence here on earth was short, but her legacy will endure.  And I know she will help start a change.

Have you ever wished you had the power to do something that could make a change?  I am a huge advocate for causes, mainly children’s causes–specifically, children’s cancer.   So it is an honor for me to be part of something big.  And you can help too.  Give back while getting back and join us in a Party for Layla this Sunday, April 18th. 

Being an avid Facebook junkie, I followed a blog link that my friend Christie Lacy posted on her page.  What I read really hit home with me.  I heard my own personal emotions and struggles with childhood cancer echoed in the voice of a mother watching her baby die.  I prayed for her, and thought about her family often. 

On the morning I opened Christie’s email about Party for Layla, I was overwhelmed.  I knew God had a hand in this and we were just a small part of the big picture.  Christie’s email detailed a wonderful opportunity for a community to honor Layla Grace while getting some portraits back in return.  A portrait party with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Marsh family and their cancer research foundation to fight Neuroblastoma.  Click on the blog banner above to find out more.   

It is so important to cherish every moment with your children and family.  Its also especially important to capture that time with photographs. 

Now if only the weather would stay nice…

Retro Audrey

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Part of my new blog commitment will be to do what I like to call “retro-blog.”  Essentially digging into my old image files and posting things that the general public has never seen before.  That is a ton of stuff, seeing to how I was such a terrible blogger.  I have about two years worth of unblogged images so there will be plenty of “new” content here.  New to you, at least. 

Who doesn’t like a trip down Memory Lane?  If you do happen to spy some images from your old sessions, shoot me an email.  Let me know you’ve seen your old stuff on the blog, and I will set you up with a brand new, complimentary 2010 session!  They’re called “Memory Lane Sessions.”  This promotion applies only to sessions shot prior to 2010.  Posts must be tagged with “retro-blog” to qualify (see bottom of the post); one complimentary session per family, please.  

Let the trip down Memory Lane begin! 

First up, baby Audrey.  This was quite some time ago.  She’s grown so much!  Hope I get to capture her again soon.  Oh, and guess what?  She’s a blonde now, but still so beautiful.

Love the little swirl in her head below.

Remember the term “Senoritis” from back in high school? (Do they even use that term anymore?) How the very last months of your senior year you had all of these emotions over school ending and it just overwhelmed your already crazy teen life? Yeah, those were the days. Ahhh, to be young and carefree again!

jMaltbie Photography is now offering Senior Sessions…so much fun! I am currently accepting applications for high school Senior portfolio models for the 2008/2009 school year. Looking for Seniors that are fun, hip, not afraid to express themselves and want a different style…think fashion.

What does this mean for you? It means that you get a killer Senior Portrait Session, special rates, incentives and other cool stuff. what do you have to do? Be yourself, be a Senior for 2008-2009, and be willing to spread the word about my awesomeness (ha ha). I have a ton of great ideas, but need more faces. So bring it on!

Just a sampling with my very own girl…

Public Service Announcement

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

The holidays have arrived and it has already been a crazy season here at jMaltbie Photography. I am sure you are likely feeling the crunch too.

I must announce that I am no longer booking any Holiday Sessions for 2007. My schedule filled up rather quickly this year and time constraints will not allow for any further sessions needing Christmas delivery.

If you are interested in booking a session for regular delivery, I still have a select number of sessions available for delivery after the holidays.

In other news, if you take lots of pictures please back up your images. Put them on a disk, print them out. Do whatever you need to do. Just a friendly reminder. You never know what can happen to a computer. You should never trust that your cherished images will be safe forever in your “My Pictures” folder. And that’s all I have to say about that.

Jingle Bells Rock!

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

Ok, I know its only September, but it is now offically FALL…YAY! If you haven’t already started thinking about the holidays, you should.

I am now accepting bookings for Holiday Sessions. These sessions are super popular and book fast. Why the Holiday Session?

1. Not your run-of-the-mill holiday cards.
2. Photos are some of the best gifts to give.
3. There is no better excuse to take a family portrait.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture. (Ha! I’m so funny!)

Maternity/Newborn clients don’t get lost in the shuffle! Please contact me prior to your baby’s arrival so I we can schedule a mini-session for the little one.

PLEASE NOTE: You love your family, I love mine too. And because I’d like to spend some time with them this year, I will NOT accept any client shoots after November 11th. Also, all holiday card orders must be in by November 24th to get them by the first week of December. Should you have any questions about cut-off dates, please email me at

More to details to come on Holiday Cards and new samples for 2007.

End of Summer Clearance

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

Well, its time to clean up around here to make room for the upcoming 2007 Holiday Sessions. So if you missed out on any photos from any 2006 session, now is the time to get them.

Any 2006 session orders placed until November 1st will be discounted at 60% off current prices. Get them now or lose them forever. FYI, if you are looking for your old web album, I have moved them to a different location. Email me ( and I will tell you where to find them.

Who’s Your Daddy (and Mommy)?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

I was looking at a few photos of my kids the other day and thought how nice it would be to have some pictures of me with them. I’m sure there are lots of moms (and dads) out there who feel the same way I do…always behind the camera and never in any pictures. It’s pretty sad.

To celebrate Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day), I will be offering 10% off a la carte print pricing for all sessions booked through June 30th. I figured since I started late, I might as well keep it going for a while. Better late than never, right?

So grab your little ones and let’s get shooting. Oh, and if anyone wants to take a picture of me with my babies, please feel free. You should see how crazy our self-portraits are!
