As I am sitting here, wrapping up my year, I am feeling many emotions. Exhaustion after surviving the holidays with three kids and many holiday parties, excitement for all of the good things to come next year and a feeling of gratitude to all of the people who are a part of my life.

And then, minutes ago, our daily visit from the postal carrier brought another yummy treat from one of our favorite vendors. Adorama is a large resource for photographers and we love them because they value education like we do at Photography Business Institute. So imagine my excitement when I opened the box to this large collection of branded cookies!! Someone else shares our affinity for the power of brand building!!! Yippee.

Now, I do have to also thank them (and so many others of you) for the fact that I have eaten more cookies, chocolate, peppermint bark and other yummy things in the last week that nothing I own fits me anymore. But doesn’t that make me the dream target for all of the marketing this weekend? Aaaaah. The JOYS of marketing:-)

We put our hearts and souls into creating products that thrill our clients all year long here at Photography Business Institute and Sarah Petty Photography. I can’t thank all of you enough for your support.

From all of us to all of you. Happy Holidays:-)
