Big News... Round Two!

It’s been one week since we launched our new brand and we have been overwhelmed with the response! We are almost to 5000 likes on our Facebook page and the hundreds of shares, comments, retweets, reposts,  etc… have been unlike anything we have seen! We can do nothing but thank you all for your support of us and our growing business! While our business is booming, we have some other really exciting news.

As many of you know, Adam has been working at The Masters Inn summer camp since 2007. The Masters Inn is where many of our shoots have taken place and it has played a huge role in our business and our personal lives. We met there, got engaged there, and lived there. Through The Masters Inn, we have seen hundreds of lives changed and we have seen God move in big ways. We are nothing but thankful for how camp has influenced our lives. In 2013, with a new family of five and a growing business;  our house quickly became small, our free time quickly diminished, and we realized we had to make a change. After many months of prayers and thoughts, we have decided that Adam is going to leave The Masters Inn and devote more time to our business and our family. This week we moved into our new four bedroom house and we plan on finishing our basement with a family room and an office in the next year :)

2013 was a year of rapid growth and nonstop going. This year we are going to focus more on simplifying our lives and spending time enjoying life. With Adam no longer at The Masters Inn, our turn-around time for photos is going to be quicker, the dates we have available will increase, our social media and blogs will be updated more frequently, Adam will be teaching photography classes through Pastiche at Main, we will design and sell more albums , Adam will build more picture frames and sell more prints online and at Pastiche. Hopefully the many changes will benefit you all and our business will be able to grow even more! There is much to look forward to in 2014 and we cant wait to share it with you all!

Meet the Mullins'

I {Sarah} have been waiting since summer to share these pictures with everyone. We wanted to wait until the big brand reveal so I'm so happy to finally be able to post them! I also wanted to take a minute to let everyone get to know us a little! 

Adam and I got married in 2009 and did our first shoot a couple months after we were married, then we got asked to do our first wedding in 2010. What started off as just taking a few pictures for friends and family, quickly turned into a growing business! I was eventually able to quit my day job and run our growing business full time. A dream come true for me! 

Don't misunderstand, this was not an overnight success and it did not come without struggles. Taking pictures has always been amazing, but learning how to work for ourselves and run the business side of things was a learning process, and it still is today.

Fast forward to 2012 and Adam and I became instant parents to Aubri and Deitrich though foster care. Six months later baby Jax was born! Doing about three shoots a week and then having an instant family of five left us feeling overwhelmingly busy and blessed and we wouldn't change it for anything! 

2014 is looking really exciting for us! We have already booked more weddings for 2014 than we had in 2013 and we are keeping busy during what is considered the photographers "off season." We are working on a few more big surprises that we hope to announce this year. Keep your eyes on our Facebook and blog and see what is going on with us as we learn how to manage three children and a small business all at the same time!
