My blog has moved to:

The new logo

Well, I hoped to have every new thing released at the exact same moment but my web master, aka husband, tells me it's not that easy. So my site is going to be down for a few days. I hope it won't be for very long. This is what you'll find if you go to jhintze.com.

I finally have a logo of sorts. It's basically just the business name in a cool letter arrangement or whatever. But anyway, I like it. It's friendly and it makes me happy. It's certainly better than just typing everything business related in the "skia" font for uniformity.

So, what do you think? I'm not changing it so you might as well like it. I made the mistake one night of asking Jackson's input. He was just wanting me to change all kind of stuff around for no good reason at all. I told him to go to bed.

A little wacky

Things around my website might get a little wacky over the next few days as we begin to move to the new site. The address will be the same so you may see some kind of under construction type thing happening. We will bust it to get the new site up ASAP. Please be patient with us. Once we get everything up, I will post here for one last time and then we're on to the new blog. Thanks.

While you wait, check out this little piece of coolness. Just one of the many new things we're preparing for the new site. I will have fully customizable cards with many more options. But this is one of my super affordable pre-made cards.

Countdown to the new J.Hintze Photography website and blog. That means this blog won't be the one you're interested anymore. I'm *hoping* to have all the new stuff ready to go in a week. That might be a little too ambitious so we'll have to see how it goes. I'm so excited to have the new site up and running. It's going to be much better and more colorful and just all together cooler. Okay, here are a couple of sneak hints about some things you're going to find on the new site:

- The Beatles
- Green & turquoise
- Original music (not canned stuff you can get anywhere)
- Accordion

Okay, gotta go work some more on the stuff to get it ready.

Happy 80th Birthday, Helen & L.Z., aka "Coach"

This evening I got to hang out with a big group of folks and celebrate two 80th birthdays. Here are a few pictures from the event. This is the largest family picture I've taken yet...and it was raining a little so we had to hustle.

Jackson's business cards have arrived

Here's a funny picture of Jackson showing off his new business cards. These are actually play date cards for those social mommies (unlike myself) who might want to have some cards to hand out to new friends.

Christmas Cards and Announcements

Here are a few Christmas card designs I've been playing with today. These were designed using templates and backgrounds purchased at PT4P. I have tons of design options in 5X7 sizes, both flat and folded and 5X5 sizes, both flat and folded. All of the designs are insanely customizable. The options are practically endless. Each card is created uniquely for your family or baby. They can be as classic, elegant, fun, or crazy as you want them to be. Contact me for pricing or to book your shoot.

Family Vacation at Galveston Beach

I met a family in Galveston this morning for some pictures. It was very bright and very hot! Even at 8:30 in the morning. We were all pretty sweaty after about 15 minutes. The kids were real troopers. I love this first picture of Mallory. She turned out to be quite a ham once we got out of the sun. I played around with some different finishes and textures on some of these. Any little experimental things are offered in addition to the regular color and b&w prints, BTW.

It's almost that time again.

Yes, I know it's August and the hottest part of the year here in South Texas. But believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards. And that means it's time to start thinking about booking your family session so you can have pictures for those Christmas cards. I've got some great new designs that are fully customizable and so cute. I'm very excited about all the new templates and other fun stuff I have just purchased. Here's a Christmas card for you to take a look at.

Playdate Business Cards - How chic is this??

Jackson will soon have his own business cards. Aren't these cool?
This template was purchased at Pinkle Toes 4 Photographers.

Chubby Legs Kendall

I had a shoot this morning with Kendall. I did her pictures back in March and she has certainly changed a lot since then. The mosquitos were beyond horrible today. And it just so happens that I chose a couple of locations with high grass and I think mosquitos love high grass. Kendall and her parents stuck it out though and I think we got some great pictures. I've hardly been able to peel myself away from the computer since I walked in the house. I'm actually still wearing my filthy clothes from the shoot. I need a shower!

Anyway, here are some pictures of Kendall. I have probably gone a bit overboard with the number of pictures on this post. Oh well. I think the first one is my favorite from today. And I can't prove it, but I think Kendall might be among the top ten most beautiful babies on the planet. And certainly one of the chubbiest.

P.S. Kendall, I won't tell Mrs. Cyndi that you tee-teed on her mirror. It will be out little secret. ;-)
