It has LONG been a dream of mine to live in Colorado. For a long time, my dream was to work really, really hard in my business so that we could buy a small vacation cabin in Colorado. But, over the course of the last year or so, my family has been praying hard, figuring out options, etc. and we are excited to say that the Jordan Family is headed to Colorado for a "One Year Experiment!" We want more time together, a slower pace, mountains, and a little more room to breathe for that year. We are headed to a town of 20,000 people in Southwest Colorado, and we are excited for all the adventures to come in the next year, and most importantly, more time together as a family.
What does that mean?!
What that means is that my husband and I will be living and working hard (working our regular jobs) - just from Colorado for a year. We have a LOT of details to figure out (renting our Austin house out for a year, finding a place to rent there, etc.), so we are not looking past that first year right now because there are SO many things we need to figure out first.
Here is what I DO Know:
What I do know is that I (Sarah) will be coming back to Austin 2-3 times that year to work with my best clients. So - if you're wanting to book a session with me in 2020 or 2021, NOW is definitely the time to do so! See #3 below. Contact me here and ask about my Austin sessions for 2020/2021 during my year away. I plan on coming back in early October for some beautiful outdoor and in-Studio sessions, and then again in late March/early April, and probably one more time after that.
If you've been a long time client of Miles of Smiles Photography as many of my clients are, you may be thinking, "WHAAAAT?! How is that going to work?" Let me set your heart at ease with some facts that I do know.
1) Same STUDIO. Same great SERVICE. Same amazing attention to DETAIL & AMAZING PRODUCTS!
Miles of Smiles Photography business and Studio WILL still be running in Austin, TX. I have an incredibly talented team working with me, and these 2 Associate Photographers are amazing! See the link below to meet these talented women. They know that the #1 priority here at Miles of Smiles Photography is creating an incredible CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE. They will be great to work with at your session! (Also, see below (#3) if you're wanting to book a session with me.)
2) I (Sarah) will still be running Miles of Smiles Photography.
I will still be the one running Miles of Smiles Photography, and EVERY single image will still run directly through me before it is finalized for the client. I (Sarah) will still be responding to inquiries, booking the sessions, providing client support, coordinating details and helpful preparation information, etc. on the front end. My Team will photograph the session outdoors or at our beautiful Studio, (unless you're booking a session with me - see #3 below) and then I will again take over from there and coordinate the Order & Design Appointment, finalizing detailed edits to your beautiful images, ordering your prints and gorgeous ART Products, etc.
3) I (Sarah) will be back in Austin 2-3 times that year to photograph my best clients.
If you're wanting to book a session with me, great! I will be back in early October, and late March/early April for sure. I'm hoping to plan one more trip after that too. So - if you're wanting a session in October 2020 or Spring 2021, NOW is the time to book it. Do not delay, as I will have limited availability during those times. Contact me here ASAP to reserve your spot! October is already filling very quickly.
Fear not, my long-time friends and faithful clients... Santa will still be coming to Miles of Smiles Photography town! Details are being finalized, and they should be announced in the May Email Newsletter like they usually are. (And they will sell out quickly like they usually do.) Not sure if you're on that Email Newsletter list? (We do not share emails or spam you... and we only send about 10 emails a year.) Click HERE to add yourself.

7) As always, THANK YOU for your continued support!
And as ALWAYS, especially in these times and what is happening in the world, a very, very heartfelt THANK YOU for your continued support of my business and the ART that I create for my incredible clients. For the last decade, this Miles of Smiles Photography business has truly been "my third baby" - and something I have worked endlessly on to create something truly magical for my clients. And because of YOU, my life has changed for the better. I am beyond grateful for your past support, and the support that Miles of Smiles Photography will receive in the future.
I am truly honored, humbled, and in awe of what Miles of Smiles Photography has become the last decade here in Austin, Texas, the ways it has grown and touched businesses around the world, and I look forward to seeing where God leads it in the next decade here in Austin and in this big ol' world.
If you have any questions, send them my way here. Sending prayers, light, love and a whole lot of gratitude to all of you.
