I got into a fight with a spider....and lost. Why we will be closed for two weeks this summer.

If you know me, getting into a fight with a spider doesn't seem like an abnormal occurrence but I understand how you might be thinking "Huh?" and "What exactly does that have to do with photography?"

To spare you most of the embarrassing details, I did indeed get into a tiff with a spider and lost. How exactly do you loose to a SPIDER? Well, I was sitting on the floor when it came out of nowhere RIGHT. IN. MY. FACE. So I did the only logical thing and tried to escape it's wrath by pushing myself across the floor with my feet, and ended up tearing some things within my hip. (Spider escaped in his victory.)

While getting all the diagnostic testing done, it was found that I had some pretty critical issues already going on within that hip besides the new injuries that all need immediate attention, so it was a blessing in disguise that I was defeated by that dang spider.

So, what does this have to do with photography, or specifically Rocking Arrow Photography?

I will be having surgery to fix all these issues this week.

Per my Surgeon, I will be non weight bearing on that leg for at least six weeks, but will be allowed to work in the office again after two.

From June 21st- July 8th. I will be out of the office. As soon as I'm alert and able, I will be returning all phone calls and messages.

After July 8th, I will be able to take on consultations, session planning, and ordering appointments as usual, though all new sessions will be held after the beginning of August.

Obviously I would much rather be busy working with you all again, and I'm defiantly not looking forward to the rough recovery, but I am excited to be able to catch up on some much needed social media posts, blog a little more, and plan out our holiday sessions! And because my clients are amazing, I know you will all understand needing to take a few weeks off to take care of myself, so I can get back to capturing you and your families for many, many more years to come.

I hope you all are having an amazing summer, and I can't wait to catch up with you soon!

One last thing:

Because I know I have the best clients around, I have discount cards available for $100 off the booking fee for Fall sessions! Send me an E-mail with your name and address and I'll get one out to you as soon as possible. These are limited, and will go out on a first come first serve basis.

A million thanks for being so understanding!
