Moving Forward

Personal

Bad, blogger, bad!

Oh my, so I have a lot of make up work to do. I promise that I have been thinking of you but the last few months have been crazy, to say the least. Here’s a brief rundown of LDP news…

Moved across the country! I am now settled into my new home in Narberth, PA which is right outside of Philadelphia. I grew up around here on the Main Line and am looking forward to getting reconnected with old friends and eating water ice again.

Website update. My site (www.lindsaydocherty.com) now has two sites within: weddings and lifestyle. It was time to expand and build a separate site for weddings. The lifestyle site is still dedicated to the portrait wing of LDP.

ImagingUSA. Every year in January the Professional Photographers of America puts on a big convention and expo. This year it was in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona and hosted the incredible Anne Geddes as the keynote speaker. I went, I learned, I had fun, I met up with old friends and new.

Bridal Shows. I have two wedding fairs coming up in February and I’ve been putting a ton of time into preparing for them. You should definitely come out if you’re in the market for wedding professionals in the Philly area. The first show is tomorrow (February 8th) from noon to 4pm at Perelman Quad on Penn’s campus. The second is on February 22nd at the Willow Grove Mall from 11am to 6pm. There might just be a bonus for couples who book after seeing me at the show! Go here for more information.

Technology. Who can really stay away from Facebook? Not I. Lindsay Docherty Photography now has its own Facebook page and you can (and should!) become a fan asap. There will be a few tidbits that get announced on my Facebook page before they’re out anywhere else so you really don’t want to miss out! I’m also now updating my Twitter account regularly so you can keep tabs on your favorite photographer and her exciting adventures through Twitter. How’s that for keeping you all in the know!

So I know I still have weddings, portrait sessions, and monthly desktop images to catch up on and you’ll be seeing those in the coming weeks. See you soon!

I had a fantastic birthday this year. Brunch, a trip to the flower show, a delicious dinner, a bright green rain jacket, and cameras. Lots of awesome vintage cameras. They are long past their prime functionally but they’re ideal for me. I love the dusty pieces, the heavy hinges, and the thought that they could have captured just about anything. Maybe one of them belonged to a wedding photographer. Or perhaps a wartime photojournalist. Or more likely, a mother or father who wanted pictures of the family. And I love that. History passed through these lenses and now might reside in leather bound albums or pewter picture frames. I think ...

Scotland Visit
I really hate leaving home base for too long. I get back and feel like the sky is falling. I think the dust is finally settling and I can get back into the groove again. I wanted to share some of my pictures from my trip to Scotland a few weeks ago. My grandmother is not doing very well so it was a last minute thing to get across the pond. If I ever see another airport again, it will be too soon. Part of my adventure was borderline comical. I flew from San Francisco to Los Angeles for a nine hour layover. The flight was at 7am and I had a shuttle pick me up at 5am. The shuttle driver wasn't having a great morning – he picked me up late ...

This is the time for colors in this area. Just look out your window. This is why friends and family think I’m a ghost this time of year. It’s the busiest part of the year for me because the foliage is so vibrant that everyone wants a piece of it! My October dates booked up lickity split and then November did too when I had to let people know October was closed. This means that there are still a ton of sessions and weddings coming up on the blog before the end of the year. And we’re talking some fantastic imagery too! Indoor weddings, outdoor weddings, city hall weddings, boudoir sessions, and engagement sessions like you wouldn’t belie ...
