Pink Comb Salon



My good friend Stephanie and I recently visited the fabulous Michelle Lo Conte at her salon, Pink Comb, in Nutley, NJ. It is such a cute place, so wonderfully decorated that I immediately asked Michelle who her interior designer was. Turns out she designed the place herself! Her talent and attention to detail are clearly evident the moment you step into the place.

So as we got a relaxing mani-pedi and sipped on pink champagne (I am loving my 'business meetings' lately), surrounded by chandeliers and pink and brown decor and candles and all sorts of girly things, the conversation quickly turned to boudoir since I am getting so many NJ and NYC inquiries for boudoir, I would love to serve you better by offering sessions in your area.

More details coming soon...

In the meantime, I definitely recommend checking out Pink Comb!

Loreal Color of Hope

I received this email this morning from one of my brides - Erin Walter, who was married in September of 2005, and I thought I'd pass this on.


"Need your help - please visit www.lorealcolorofhope.com in next two days to view the beautiful website and more importantly the INFORMATION on ovarian cancer awareness on the site..... I know some of you already have but can you also forward to your family/friends? L'Oreal is trying to get 22,000 visitors before the end of September in honor of the 22,000 women diagnosed each year and only have 2 more days to reach their goal.

And again if you go to Why We Care menu at bottom and Videos and Stories you can see my mug :) along with some other great ladies. Dara is actually from South Jersey (Haddonfield) as well. Forward our website to your friends/family - www.lorealcolorofhope.com"


Erin's wedding was featured on TheKnot.com Real Weddings! And I recently saw her and Chuck at her cousin's wedding and they are so cute together and such a great couple - so I definitely wanted to pass on this info - please pass it on to friends and family and we can get the 22,0000 visitors to the site!

I'm off!

I'm heading to Princeton for Melissa and Lazlo's engagement!

I love these weekday shoots. Pics coming soon!

*Update* - here's a few pix! We walked around Princeton campus, a beautiful campus with really cool architecture and some interesting statues. It only took me about 45 minutes to get there so I am definitely adding Princeton to my list of engagement shoot locations!





North Jersey Boudoir

In order to better accomodate my NJ clients, I am looking for a location to shoot boudoir in north Jersey - specifically around the Nutley, NJ area (more details coming soon about WHY that area in particular...) - or even something in Monmouth or Middlesex County. If anyone is familiar with either a really cool B&B or a hotel that is decorated in a unique way please email me at kamharrisphoto@yahoo.com

Thank you!

LOVE!

I really love weddings, it's ridiculous sometimes when I think about how weddings are my life and I love every minute of it. I even love wedding reality shows.... and I hate most reality shows... except Project Runway which is my absolute FAVE - ok I'm getting off topic so let me get back on track.

This weekend I had two weddings, Erin and Don on Friday at the Renault Winery in Egg Harbor, and Melissa and Jim on Saturday at Auletto's in Deptford.

I drove home Saturday night from Jim and Melissa's wedding just going over all the day's events in my head like I usually do and I was just all excited about how great both weddings went despite a bit of a hectic start!

On Saturday, my assistant Sarah, got into a car accident on the way to meet me in the morning! The most important thing is that she is ok but I told her to just take care of herself and that I would get someone to cover for her. And after a couple phone calls I was able to recruit a good friend of mine, Margaret, who has assisted me at weddings in the past, and she is a full-time commercial photographer and has done a few weddings on her own as well. She lives a couple hours away but she arrived in time for the ceremony and was a great help throughout the day.

Here are a few photos from this weekend.

The Schaefer Family

Here are a couple more of my faves from Family Week!







Still settling in.. almost there!

I am currently working on finishing up..... let's see... 7 boudoir sessions, 2 weddings, 3 engagement sessions and 5 family photo sessions. I am working on boudoir sessions and engagement sessions for girls who are getting married in a matter of weeks - so they are my first priority right now since I have never been late on delivery of a boudoir album or engagement photos in time for the wedding.

And of course I'm still settling in to my new office, preparing for upcoming projects, designing albums, etc. So it's a bit hectic around here, and my usual quick response time to new inquiries is suffering because I am really focused on current and past clients right now - as much as I value new inquiries, I really need to focus on my current projects at the moment, and of course I need a day off here and there too (what is a 'day off'..?? lol). I have some help now with the clerical office stuff so things are getting easier and I can focus more on shooting and editing so once everything settles into place and I'm caught up with everything there will be no more lags in response.

I will definitely answer every single email and phone inquiry it is just going to take a little longer than usual. I get about 100 emails a day not including tons of junk email so it just takes a little bit to get through it all sometimes.

In the meantime - this might answer a lot of questions - I am not booking any more weddings for January - September of 2009. I am now starting to book 2010.

And I have decided to open up a bunch of Fridays for boudoir sessions in January-March - January 16, 23, 30, February 6, 20, 27, and March 13 and 21.

Also, Starlet Sessions will be offered on a regular basis starting the spring of 2009 - more details on that will come in October


Thank you for your patience!
