And So it Goes

Everyone around BBP has enjoyed Christmas and the New Year's celebrations are to come! It's a funny mix of downtime and crazy busy at the studio and we're still enjoying holiday cards from vendors, clients and friends, thanks to you all!

Bobbi celebrated her birthday yesterday with family and friends as well as meeting with a bride and groom, and was busy preparing for the kick off of wedding show season.

The phone? It is ringing------ how many couples got engaged over the holidays anyway? Must be quite a few, wow! We're looking forward to meeting so many of you over the next few weeks.

Lucky Us

Three days before Christmas, mild (for the moment) weather, deliveries made and such wonderful clients! We're a lucky studio indeed!

Justin from Best Transportation, our favorite Limo company, stopped by with a beautiful tin of Christmas cookies---- yum! Thanks to all at Best, we have enjoyed it as well as some of our great clients!

I'm happy to report that a Wii will be under the tree in Virginia for my grandboys! That seems to be quite the holiday accomplishment! We all hope that your own plans for the soon approaching big day are going as smoothly!

Easing toward Merry

As the holiday season begins to rachet up a bit, the parking lots full, the traffic fierce, and tempers flaring all around you------

We hope you can remember to laugh! To remember the love and be happy in the small things that make life wonderful.

Make the choice to be merry!

Holiday Blessings

Thanks to Emily of Sister's Flowers for the lovely flowers---- they gave the studio another lovely holiday touch! It is great to have the opportunity to work with such talented vendors!

The holiday orders are all picked up
Deliveries are just about complete.............

Once again, we have the most wonderful clients in the world, we couldn't be luckier-- or happier for that matter!

We all hope that as you enter the home stretch you take time to be a blessing and pass one on.

Poor Prince

Because we always get asked about Hana and Prince, Bobbi's Chinese Crested Powderpuffs---- I I bring you Prince's tale of woe.

Here is Hana (on the left) and Prince in his new sweater. Handsome as can be yes? Apparently when Bobbi came home after being at the Studio, he was his usual very excited self to see her walk in the door and he jumped off the couch. He'd been a little chilly apparently and all curled up somehow inside his sweater. When he jumped off the couch, his duclaw got hung in the yarn and the nail was torn. A trip to the vet----- many tears (and I'll just say not by Prince alone!)

After sedation------ awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

Hana on guard for her brother!

Today Prince is feeling much better and seems to be on the mend!

Lots of snow on the way for St. Louis today and through tomorrow! Have fun and be safe!

Kelly & Jim

Back to back welcomes for new BBP wedding family members! Today we'd all love to mention our newest bride and groom, Kelly and Jim! Thanks guys for putting your trust in Bobbi Brinkman Photography! Each one of us looks forward to being part of your once in a lifetime day and capturing each moment with "Images from the Heart..." As I tell all of our wedding couples, it is really quite amazing to see how fast the time flies from the time we meet you until your wedding day. When I am standing with the bride at the back of the church just before she goes down the aisle, inevitably she comments that she didn't know where the time went!

Well get used to THAT I say! :) Before you know it you'll be old married people sending your kids off to college, time is such a funny thing.

Let me give all of our faithful blog readers a DANIELLE UPDATE! We know that you love Nell and are always asking what she is up to. She is still with Mike, and they are blissfully happy together! They've moved into a really cute apartment in the Lemay area and are busy decorating and getting ready to spend the holidays together in their new home. Nell is still hard at work on her Master's degree in elementary education as well as working full time, isn't she great?

Hard to believe that it is the 13th of December already, talk about where did the time go? Yesterday we were able to spend some time with the Trottier family and had a great time. How is it that everyones' kids are growing like weeds?

Lisa & Jason

We're already smiling from ear to ear during the holidays---- you have those around you in a good mood (well, generally!) the pretty lights and decorations, seeing clients and their children and the like. But to be able to welcome a bride and groom to the wedding family at BBP, well WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is good news indeed!

Welcome Lisa and Jason, we are so very pleased to have you! We discovered that Lisa is a childhood friend of another wonderful bride of ours, Ashley. As I told Janet, Lisa's Mom----- we love Ashley's family so it is not a stretch at all to know that we will love you too! We look forward to working with this great couple before their wedding in '09! That fills our May in 2009, are brides becoming more organized or what???

Jess and Viv

Another holiday highlight for us was being able to do the holiday portrait of one of our favorite and most delightful sister duos, Jessica and Vivian. They looked absolutely great, and in their darling clothes they made the holiday set sparkle this year! Seeing their parents Linda and Tom was icing on the cake!

Now............... if I could just score that very cool black tree!!!!!!

Holiday Time!

One of the joys for Bobbi is to be able to photograph the kids and families that she has been blessed to watch through the years. Many of the studio kids were in front of her lens when they were born and she always gets so excited when it is time for another portrait! Nick, above, is one of those great kids. He is growing into a fine young man--- but why woudn't he? He has great parents and a great family! His sister will have to be part of a future blog entry! One of the things that amazes us about Nick is his amazing ability to spout sports knowledge, this kid is truly amazing. He and Bobbi bantered back and forth about all manner of sports trivia. Guess who is the bigger kid? Go ahead! Guess!

We're in the thick of our holiday sessions and are having the best time! Kids and families are what it's all about this time of year! We'll be posting some great photos coming up from these wonderful sessions!

Katie & Jordan

It might have been a bit chilly yesterday but believe me, it did not put a bit of a damper on the wedding of Katie & Jordan! Katie was a gorgeous bride in an amazingly beautiful gown from Neiman Marcus, the beading was exquisite. Her veil? Let's just say that we've never seen anything like it, to say it was incredible doesn't begin to describe the miles of flowing tulle with the fabulous beading around the scalloped edge! Jordan was smiling and handsome and their families were there to share their love and happiness. The wedding was held at St. Francis Xavier on the campus of St. Louis University, a beautiful location. Their reception was at the Crowne Plaza in Clayton and was dazzling down to the last detail! I'm sure that they are over the moon happy that today's very cold, gray and madly raining weather did not arrive a day earlier!!

Katie & Jordan

Today is the long anticipated wedding of Katie and Jordan---- we've looked forward to it for such a long time! Katie is the sister of one of our wonderful grooms and we already feel like family! Hopefully the weather will hold off the possible ice and probable rain for the very special day. If not, her sweet spirit will carry her through what will undoubtedly be an absolutely glorious and gorgeous day!!!

Happy December 1st!
