We’ve got some big news and lots of changes happening at Alicia Thurston Photography.

Number one on the agenda is the introduction of my AMAZING Office Manager, Ruby!

Ruby is a dynamic and highly innovative Communications, Marketing, and Photography professional with 5+ years of multi-faceted experience in the manufacturing, pharmaceutical, event planning, and retail sectors.
With her background in communications and public relations, along with a strong affinity for photography, Ruby has a thorough understanding of the importance of imagery, professionalism, and brand value building.

Ruby will play a role in each and every portrait session and wedding, taking care of the important details behind the scenes and sometimes right along side me. The customer experience is important and I want to make sure that my time is spent getting to know my clients and their needs, creating an artful session that reflects my clients uniqueness, and finally taking careful time with the final images to ensure quality imagery, ready for your walls. I also want to make sure that I am giving just as much time, focus and love into my family. With that in mind, I felt that bringing in an office manager with Ruby’s expertise and wonderful personality, would offer a great balance to all the aspects of my business and home life. We are so happy to have her on board.



Next up, I wanted to announce our newest product. I’m so exited about our new Digital Albums, they are going to be a huge hit with all of your family and friends. Now you can share all the best from your session on your mobile device and there’s no time limit. Check out this great demo!



Now for a few updates on business and the like…
We are booking up quickly this year. There is one more spot left for a Toronto Portrait session and only two more weekend spots for Kitchener/ Waterloo before July. Weekday mornings and evenings in Waterloo region are still an option but very limited.
I am only taking ONE more wedding in 2013 and have starting booking 2014 weddings.
On that note, wedding prices are increasing for 2014. The new price book will be printed in May so I’m giving a last chance shout out for my current pricing for all 2014 brides. I will announce one more last call before they get printed in case this announcement gets missed with all the great news listed above.



We are heading to Toronto for a few fun photo shoots! As well, we are walking a 5KM walk to help raise funds for The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and in support of a good friend and client, Stacy. Stacy appeared on City News yesterday to briefly discuss the importance of this Foundation and our team, take a look here. You can check out our team page here, there’s still a few more hours to contribute and your donations would be greatly appreciated. Both Em and I will be walking and we can’t wait. That’s all for now folks. Have an amazing weekend and enjoy some sunshine!
