|Alright Asheville, the $99 Portrait Package is coming to an end. And if, like me, you've done absolutely none of your holiday shopping (It's only the 21st! Plenty of time . . .), make it easy on yourself and book a session for the tough prospects on your list. The recipient can schedule the shoot whenever they'd like, but to get the discounted rate, book it before midnight on December 31st!
The ACT's Sunday piece on Terry Bellamy got me thinking. It's tough to be a politician with journos in your face all the time. And that's as it should be. But I feel pretty fortunate to have been around for some interesting moments over the last few years: I was there when Bellamy announced her run for Congress, when she led the charge of the city's lawsuit against the state, and when she told us she wouldn't run for reelection. She's been mayor during all of my political coverage, and almost the entire time I've lived in Asheville. It's going to be weird seeing a different face at the center of the dais.
