Corset Tank Tops

Last night my wife and I spent some time re-arranging her store, A Girly Girl Boutique.  She had just gotten a shipment of corset tank tops and leggins in and we needed to get out a display table that we haven’t used since last fall. The shipment had just come in and we didn’t have time to arrange any models to come in for a photoshoot.  So the pictures are not the best. Now I’m not an expert on woman’s clothing (I am learning) but these seem like a great fall item.  I’m thinking that they would look great under a…

Sammy Gets a Blog!

I’ve been working with Sammy Coleman to get some online marketing going.  The second step in the process was to setup a blog.  Step #1 was to setup social media and Sammy was already using Facebook so that was covered.  For the blog we decided on WordPress because of the ease of use and functionality.  Sammy didn’t want to mess with his own domain yet so he is hosting on a wordpress subdomain:  http://therealdealsam.wordpress.com Two posts down and a lot more to go.  Google hasn’t hit the site yet and we want to have some more content before it does…

Michigan Galaxy Update

I was speaking with the director of Michigan Galaxy Pageants and she wanted to change the way the navigation is on the website.  After a little brain-storming session we figured out how the new navigation should look and the order that we wanted it in. After creating the content for the new pages, Debra emailed me the changes and within 2 hours the new navigation and pages were in place. Website navigation is huge!  Most visitors to a website want to get to the information they are looking for within 2 clicks.  Research has shown that visitors will start leaving…

Labadie Banner Ads

I work on the websites for Labadie Auto Company in Bay City Michigan.  A few of the domains that I administer are; www.labadieauto.com, www.great-gm-deals.com, www.labadietoyota.com, www.labadiescion.com, and www.labadierentacar.com.  There are others but these are the main domains. The Labadie’s signed up to be part of a new email campaign and they needed some banner ads.  I haven’t done banner ads for Labadie in a few years so I had to start from scratch.  I remembered reading an article on a marketing blog recently about a great way to find what works.  I can’t remember the blog or I would promote…

Richard Pryor Jr in Saginaw

If you read my previous posts this past weekend was crazy.  We had one more event for the weekend and we almost canceled it.  Richard Pryor Jr was performing at the Hancock Theatre in Old Town Saginaw.  We had said we were going to go but hadn’t been able to all weekend.  Sunday night was the only night we had free and we both though that we should really spend the night relaxing.  A last minute phone call as I was driving back to Saginaw from South lyon determined that we were going to go to the show. After the…

Cake Fight

After working the Fashion in Detroit on Friday it was off to Clio, MI on Saturday for a wedding at Crystal Gardens.  The day was cold and rainy but the wedding was beautiful and the bride and groom were a pleasure to work with.  This day I was working as a photographer for Mid-Michigan Wedding Photographers out of Saginaw, MI. The bride and groom went all out with the feeding of the wedding cake to each other – FANTASTIC!

Fashion in Detroit

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending the first Fashion in Detroit event.  We were only able to attend the event on the second day, Friday Oct 2, 2009.  The tent was comfortable with plenty of great seating that made it easy to see the runway no matter where you sat.  The lighting and sound was first class and the fashion was amazing.  We were able to do an interview with designer Kevin Christiana for The Review Magazine out of Saginaw. Kevin seemed live a very down to earth guy with a quick wit. Look for the article…

Michigan Galaxy Preliminary Crown

My wife received a shipment on Wednesday night that included the 2010 Michigan Galaxy Pageants preliminary crown.  Of course we needed some good pictures to get this promoted on the website.  Our friend (or I should say 3rd daughter) happened to come to the house this same night.  Crown and cute girl in one place equals instant photo shoot!  I got out the camera and too a few shots.

Fresh Oil Ministries

I have been working with Iain Gunn to help get his website running for http://freshoilmin.org.  This site is created in Joomla and I had never used Joomla before so there was a bit of a learning curve. We ended up having to uninstall Joomla and start from scratch to get the website functioning again because there was a piece of code that was causing the site to not display using IE. Once the Joomla was re-installed on the server and we re-uploaded the template the first order of buisness was to get the fantastic logo that was designed by Stephanie…
