The blast just went out and should be arriving in your inboxes in the next 15 minutes or so! It includes a nice little discount code for those of you on the mailing list.
Also new this month is that our signature fabric, black and cream Baroque is back! If you were waiting for it, its up there for you now so snag it before its gone again.
The other big news is that gift certificates are now available! When you go to the shootsac site, you'll see a tab at the top that says, "gift certificates". Isnt' it so fun that you can now give a gift certificate for birthdays, holidays, photographers who referred you jobs, friends in need of fashion, your wife, your husband, and for any reason at all?
Some of you are going to be lucky enough to receive gifts from the most thoughtful men. I am tickled pink every time a man calls me and says he wants to buy a Shootsac and True Color Cover for his wife or girlfriend, or partner. We have shipped them for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and big trips. I love helping them pick covers for you -- but honestly most of them -- already know EXACTLY what you want. So romantic!
I have to be honest though...I feel a little bad for the guys! We think the Shootsac makes an equally good gift for the male photographer. Help us rescue them from the photovest. For a little inspiration, check out superstar Dane Sanders sporting SWANKY our most popular dressy guy fabric. (Swanky is sold out at the moment, but don't worry it will be back soon.) Or David Jay sporting the bag at one of his recent destination weddings. We think they both are great shooters who know what they need from their equipment and want to look good while they work. Can you blame them?
Pick up a gift certificate and make someone very very happy!

The other day I ran into someone I've been wanting to meet for ages, So. Cal's own fab portrait photographer, Tara Whitney! Tara is a girl after my own heart--her brilliant color and beautiful portraits are just captivating. She's really got an amazing style, and obviously has a gift of being able to put people of any age at ease quickly.
If you haven't seen Tara's website, you are truly missing out. Check her out RIGHT HERE
A few shots from when I ran into Tara the other day, wearing her funky "Festive" cover:
I had to pull a few of Tara's shots to show you also:
One of the most fun family photos I've ever seen

I just got this photo from Becker, that he shot yesterday in Cabo where he and Marisa are hanging out for a fantastic wedding for a beautiful couple. Marisa is a perfect example of how a shootsac can make you look extra stylish and fun!
Check out their blogs in the next couple of days for photos from the Cabo wedding!

It's a busy time here at Shootsac! Besides it being wedding season for me, we are all kicking butt and cranking out shootsacs and covers as fast as we can make them for our next big email blast next Tuesday! You know what that means...new stuff, exciting improvements, a brand new cool feature on the website, and new featured photographers!
One thing that we've gotten great feedback on is the need to have really good swatches and images of each fabric on the site to make it easier to choose covers. You asked and we hear you! So all the covers are being shot as we speak for maximum accuracy in color and texture so those of you at home can see how beautiful these fabrics really are, since you can't touch them. They will all be up on the site before the next email goes out, so when you get the newsletter, make sure to check the site that day to see the new photos. Check out the sample of "Lavish":
and a tight crop of the fabric
I can't let you in just yet on what's in store for the next couple of months, but the plan is to send an email out once per month. Each one will be either a newsletter with what's new in the store, updates, and that sort of thing, or new fabrics, discounts, specials for owners, and much more! If you aren't on the mailing list yet, go to the top of this blog and click "mailing list" to get your name on there. A newsletter is going out NEXT WEEK, so get on there!
Also, I am ALWAYS looking for new hot shootsac users to share with the tons of photographers who read this blog! If you have a shootsac, images of you wearing it, using it, mis-using it, or anything else even related to it, send them right away to email@example.com. Happy shooting!
