Whew, so the last few months of 2009 were crazy busy and I totally slacked at keeping you informed of shoots we’d photographed and all the fun going on at Heather Neckers Photography. Its a new year and I’ve got a new resolution — to blog more.
To kick it off I’m just going to say a huge thank you to all of my previous clients from last year and to those that have been around for many more years, I truly appreciate you trusting us to capture your weddings, family portraits, newborn portraits and senior sessions! I also appreciate all the referrals you have been sending my way, it seriously makes me smile to know how much you love what I do and want to share it with your friends!
I’d also like to say congratulations to all you newly engaged couples out there — If I haven’t gotten back to you yet about your wedding inquiry don’t worry you are next on the list after this blog post! We are about halfway full for 2010 but there are still some great dates available! Oh and don’t forget the awesome wedding giveaway we have going on with Bella Day Spa, Blue Heron Inn, Jr’s Last Laugh, Bally Lough and Vixen Sessions – check out more info on the wedding giveaway.
I’m really excited about what 2010 has in store for us — I look forward to photographing your wedding or portrait and wish you a safe and prosperous new year!
Coming up on the blog: a snowy winter engagement portrait session!
xoxo | Heather

We are very excited to announce prize number one in the Super Fantastic Wedding Giveaway! [ I know, crazy name - but it really is super fantastic, there is no better way to describe it! ]
Prize #1: The Romantic Giveaway
The winner who chooses the Romantic Giveaway will get a weekend stay at Bally Lough, a charming Findley Lake cottage [ website link to come ] and a breakfast voucher for Findley Lake’s fine dining establishment the Blue Heron Inn Bed and Breakfast!
Bally Lough is a cottage nestled on a large pond a couple of miles from the center of town in Findley Lake. I chose this cottage for the Romantic Giveaway because its a cozy little retreat that is perfect for a private and romantic weekend getaway. You will be have a wide variety of dates to choose from for your weekend stay and all I can say is you can’t go wrong no matter what time of the year you choose. In the winter there is a fireplace to cuddle up next to while sipping wine and connecting with your loved one, and since it is only a few miles from Peek’n Peak you can spend the day on the slopes or at the spa before a romantic night in. When the weather is warmer there are trails throughout the 65 acres of forest, a hammock next to the pond for relaxing and a spot to have a bonfire at night. I just feel like it has something for everyone, no matter how active your lifestyle!
I chose the Blue Heron Inn because what goes better with a weekend getaway than fabulous food?! The Blue Heron Inn is famous for its tasty meals and wonderful atmosphere. They are located on the north end of Findley Lake and have a beautiful view of the lake from their covered deck. They are also an awesome place for dinner — I’ve never eaten anything there I didn’t like!
I hope the Romantic Giveaway appeals to you — if not, stay tuned for more prizes! The next announcement will come sometime this week!
I’ve got some really fantastic pictures from Kathy & Mike’s wedding day last Saturday, check the HNP facebook page later today for a few of those and there will be a blog post here soon of that portrait session as well!
