A Big Decision | OpLove | Fort Bragg, N.C. Photographer

With Sharilyn Wells Photography, LLC growing so much within the past two years, I've found myself getting busier and busier.  I have been throwing around this idea for a while now, and I really didn't WANT to come to this conclusion ... but I have. As much as I love working with Operation: Love Reunited ... I will be ending my volunteer work with them at the end of October. It was a tough decision but with my regular work load, the hectic schedules of my personal life and the baby on it's way, the heavy demand of this area for OpLove has become too much for me to handle. And that's hard for me to digest because I feel like I can take on the world! :-)

With this decision being made public, OpLove clients will not be able to look me up on the OpLove web site any more. But never fear, OpLove clients I've already booked for October ... you're safe. ;-) I will fulfill my obligations with you because face it, I love working with this organization and would never leave you guys hanging. I will not be taking on any other clients. I do know I have a few clients in February ... never fear, you too will be taken care of. :-) Basically, if you've already contacted me and we've discussed a homecoming or a pre-deployment, your session is set. Don't worry.

Also, just because I'm not going to be an OpLove photographer any more doesn't mean I won't take on homecomings! These are my favorite to photograph and will offer homecomings at a reasonable price for all my military clients. These sessions will include your images on a CD or digital download and printing rights. So spread the word! SWP will still be doing homecomings (but same rules apply, first come, first serve). I will still be offering my Welcome Back special for those who aren't able to get a photographer for their homecomings.

Again, it saddens me to have to walk away from the organization, but my family comes first and my sanity! ;-) I will always recommend the organization to anyone and will do so proudly. They have a great mission and it's been fun. I've been working with them since 2011 and it's time to hang my hat.

Thank you for your constant support! You guys rock!

Flower Girls | Creative Shoot | Fayetteville, N.C. Photographer

A friend and fellow photographer, Kat Squibb, asked me to join her on a lil' creative shoot and then showed me her inspiration board and shared ideas about the shoot. I HAD to agree to shoot with her because I just knew it was going to be gorgeous!!

 We were racing against the clock/sun as the evening approached but our wonderful makeup artist Hair and Makeup By Candy did a fabulous job and Kat did wonderfully on the flower headbands. Our two models, Lacey and Ashley, were just fabulous! (even though I didn't get a redhead. I mean how perfect a blonde, a brunette and a redhead?! alas, there's going to be another opportunity soon ... hint hint. Red heads out there, contact me!).

Be sure to give some love to Kat Squibb Photography's & Hair and Make Up by Candy's Facebooks! (just click on their names to be sent their way!)

And onto the gorgeousness!
