Out with old...in with the new.....



So....in addition to our new studio, shooting some crazy kick ass High School Graduates, and some AWESOME Weddings and Engagements, we thought we'd step it up a notch and make a BRAND NEW Website/Blog. After today, this blog will no longer be updated and the new place to find us will be HERE.

So enough blabbing on this old thing...go check out our new site and make sure to update your RSS FEED with our new information so you can keep coming back!!

Whoo hoo...fun.

MAYJA NEWS...our new studio IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!
So today Heather Cole Photography took a HUGE step, we have OFFICIALLY opened our new studio today and we couldn't be more excited!!

WOWZERS...what a serious roller coaster the last few weeks have been for us. If we've been delayed in emails, calls back, it's because for over the last four weeks we have done nothing but LIVE at this place. Since the space was new we had to make every single decision down to the FACUETS! NONE of this would be possible without the help of our wonderful supportive friends: Tielor, Jen, Aaron, Bill, Gary, Kevin, Tim, my mom, Jake's mom, Bobbi, Josh, Roger, Judy, Bob and last but CERTAINLY not LEAST my SUPER SUPPORTIVE husband and daughter..thank you, thank you, thank you. This place and everything in it, is what it is today because of you. Thank you SOOO MUCH!!

So without any further talkie talkie....Introducing our BRAND NEW Baby (I was able to get SOME of the pictures, but Josh was a ROCK star and made it out for my ribbon cutting ceremony and took some too....thanks Josh)!

The first day I even saw the space.....

Last but not least...a beautiful flower arrangement..from my daddy which made my day (thank you mom). I love you daddy and miss you everyday. I wish you could be here to share in this experience with me but the truth is...I wouldn't be here today or in this place of my life..without knowing you were with me, every step of the way. I love you and miss you. XOXOXO

Something MAJA is about to go down....
Not just major, like MAJA (says Posh).

You SOOO want to know..don't you. Oh yeah..well you will soon enough and let me tell you, this is no SMALL POTATOES. Na ah! Nope. No maamm. This is big time. I'm big time. Not really, just sounded good. MEOW.

So here's the skinny, the studio is ALMOST done. If I've been delayed on emails or responses you know why. I have been LIVING at the new studio, painting, laying tile and everything else that comes with building this awesome space. Aaron has too. This man has NOT stopped with the track lighting switches. It's CRAZY! So, I have so much to show you just give me a few more days.

ROCK on my friends. It's go time. The count down is on. April 24th. Be on this blog, or be square.

PEACE!

Meghan & David - The Main Event
Last Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot Meghan and David's wedding. For those of you who follow my blog, they were the ones I shot at a carnival. What a great time that was!!

There wedding was nothing short of amazing from start to finish. The day started off just wonderful with the weather in the high 60s. No rain, no snow. Sunny and 60. I also had my wonderful assistant, Aaron, and my good buddy Josh to help with the day. Between the three of us it was NON Stop fun. Narrowing down the pictures was almost IMPOSSIBLE. I'm a little late posting this (my two over achievers that shot with me already posted) so I wanted to try to find stuff completely different than them. I think I did alright.

So without blabbing on any further...here are just a FEW of my favorites from the day. Thanks Aaron and Josh for doing such an awesome job! Your blogs are amazing.

Meghan and David, I love you both very much. This last year getting to know you has been a blessing and I'm so glad you've been added to our "family".


Waiting....

How intense is this... ha ha....

What a great moment...
