The December issue of Dallas Child is actually out NOW, and I picked up an issue at my local Tom Thumb…lo and behold:
Favorite Family Photographer: Jennifer Weintraub of Sugar Photography
I admit that I actually got ‘the call’ about 3 weeks ago, and sent the following email to all of my clients:
Channeling Sally Field
We received a special phone call this morning (not unlike what I assume the Academy Award nominees receive early in the morning)….only much less dramatic. We were voted Dallas’ Favorite Family Photographer! What an honor!
So while I quickly try to pull together a self portrait by noon tomorrow (in which I look rested, thin, tan, and like someone you’d want to let your children play with) I wanted to also tell everyone THANK YOU!
Thank you for letting us into your homes and into your lives. Your children are all gorgeous, brilliant, and talented (truly!) and I have loved every second of the past year. What better way to spend my days than rolling on the ground, jumping in the air, and playing peek-a-boo with sweet kiddos?
So all that to say…(this is where Sally Field comes in)…”You like me! You really like me!” Thank you for the recognition! Thank you for the support and the wonderful families you’ve sent our way!
Thank you for everything!
The write-up in this month’s issue:
Dallas photographer, Jennifer Weintraub of Sugar Photography, has a gift for discovering the artistic in the everyday. Her photographs capture the emotions and relationships between families with a freshness and purity – and instantly become heirlooms. A natural with children, Weintraub combines art and photojournalism to achieve unique and evocative portraits. (Jennifer is also a regular contributing photographer with DallasChild – we discovered her first!)
and my little self-portrait…(did I achieve the thin, well-rested, and like-someone-you’d-let-your-kids-play-with look?)
(don’t answer that)
And to celebrate my new status as Dallas’ favorite family photographer (where is my coffee mug and t-shirt, people? bumper sticker?)…I’m off to bathe two kids and slip them into bed before cleaning the house (such is my glamorous life).
Let’s all hope tomorrow is a snow day…I stocked up on cookie supplies in hopes that we’ll finally get to work on our family holiday card.
