My brand spankin' new photo blog and biz!

I know that most of you knew my plans of officially starting my photography business, but if you didn't...here it is! It's called Roxsey Photography and if you click on the name it will shoot you over to my new site. It is still in the works but wanted it up and running by the end of this week. Why Roxsey?? Well, I am not real fond of my name. Most people use their names for business but...Brooke is okay, and Gatterman, well its just not very pretty. I had racked my brain for something and then one morning as I was getting in the shower, Roxsey, popped into my head and couldn't get it out. It just seems like a fun name to me! So no super special meaning, I just liked it! I am pretty much ready to do everything as far as pictures! Baby, kids and family, of course. I am going to try my hand at weddings, I have been wanting to do that for a long time. And then I am going to throw in some fun stuff and see how that goes! One of the things I would love to do, and this is for the ladies, is to do a girls photo shoot. If you head on over to Roxsey and look at my friend Karen, you will get an idea of what kind of pictures I am talking about. But to get a group of girlfriends together (kind of like a spa day, without the spa) and do hair and makeup and then take turns getting yourself a "glamour" shot. How fun would that be!
I will be shooting on location because I have no studio, so pretty much anything goes! As I am writing I am wondering if I should do a free sitting just to celebrate my "Grand Opening". So here is the deal, anyone who leaves a comment will be put in a drawing for a free sitting for up to an hour. You can check picture prices out at Roxsey!

I love the new blog Brooke. We need to figure out a time to reschedule the kids photo shoot. Maybe we should give the weather a little time to get better. Talk to you soon.

Hey Brooke! These both look great. Thanks again for all your help getting mine up and running. I have a tip to make your websites more obvious on your facebook page: from your "Profile" page you can edit your "Information" to include your websites.

Great work, you're an inspiration!

Way to go! I love your idea of a girls photo shoot. You are talented!

I'm excited that you're "offically" going to do weddings! And that you're still planning on doing the family pics b/c I'm a huge fan of your pics! :)

Congratulations, Brooke. Please include me in your mailing list/client files/whatever. Best of luck. I, too, am starting out with a new venture this year. If I can find your address, I'll send you my announcement.

Very cool! Sign me up for the drawing! Your pictures are so inspiring, I have decided to start saving for a high quality camera and a class or two on how to use it. I love all your shots and how you have parts of the picture in focus and parts that are blurred. Love love love it! Someday i will have to book you to shoot pics of my kiddo.

I have no idea why my own computer just made me anonymous.
