November Facebook Image & the fight against MS

Personal Uncategorized

This year has been more crazy and wonderful than I ever could have imagined. I started the year off running my very first marathon. I had spent countless hours in training, vowing to never put myself through such misery again. But then I crossed that finish line and it was the most euphoric feeling in the world. I got the bug. I decided to train and run in the Philly Marathon this November.

In June I participated in the messy MuckRuckus benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I badly rolled my ankle some time after mile 3 and had to leave the run. A trip to the doctor confirmed that I had fractured my ankle and had to stay away from running for three months, leaving me without enough time to train for the Philly marathon. I was heartbroken.

I’ve been running again (slowly) and will be running the Philadelphia half marathon on November 18th. I’m raising money for the National MS Society in the process and would appreciate any contribution you can make for the cause.

I won’t be running all 26.2 but I will be out there sweating through 13.1 miles and I will be working on raising as much as I can for the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Your donation would absolutely mean the world to me:

For my clients, I have an added bonus for you:  Starting at $40, I will credit you half of any donation towards Lindsay Docherty Photography products and/or services.  Donate $40, get $20.  Donate $400, get $200.  Donate $4000, get $2000.  Any amount above $40 will get you a credit.  This can be spent towards prints, sessions, wedding photography coverage, canvas prints, cards, etc.  Donate and let me know how you wish to spend your credit.  Not valid for orders or contracts already in place but can be used for additional products from previous sessions/coverage.  New clients and friends/family wanting to donate and get prints from your coverage can also take advantage of this.  Contact me for more information.

December? December?! What? How? When did that happen? I could have sworn it was just October. Things at Lindsay Docherty Photography are just crazy. Winter is supposed to be slow but if you’ve seen all the blogging the past few weeks and months, you’ll know that there is plenty going on. It’s almost to the point where I need to put “breathe” on my ‘to do’ list just as a reminder. But I can’t complain. Things are pretty awesome. My couples continue to inspire and delight me and looking forward to 2012 has me on pins and needles with excitement. Things aren’t just busy in my business life, but I’m heading out to Las Vegas on Saturday ...

Lindsay Goes to Europe
I wanted to put some more stamps in my passport before wedding season showed up in full force. I guess I put the right messages out to the universe because I had a phone call Thursday morning with a friend in Europe and everything aligned. I booked a flight and I’ll be leaving tonight for Paris, Frankfurt, Lyon, and Zurich. (Or thereabouts.)I’m thrilled and panicked. I’m a total planner and this last minute madness is making my head spin. I don’t know the language, the sights, or the customs. I didn’t even have the time to check the weather over there til yesterday (freaking freezing, by the way!). My plan is to have a croissant in Par ...

The most stressful of all of them, junior year deals with the PSAT, the SAT, the beginning of AP tests, scouting out colleges, thinking about college applications, junior proms, working on your "high school portfolio", researching scholarships and grants, driving, and that just scratches the surface. Fall semester started this whole mess and now there's the great spring semester push to keep grades especially high for the transcript.Spring semester is also a busy time for me, too. Holiday portrai ...
