I hope everyone is staying healthy and enjoying the start to the Holiday season 2020 style. Speaking of 2020 style, here's a different take that I and several others are taking this month for trying out best to get your kids their annual picture with Santa. Introducing Virtual Santa Visits.
I can do this for you. It's been tested by a few other photographers and it seems to be a big hit. I'm happy to do this for you this year. Here's what's needed:
1. contact me through the contact form at www.milliedeephotography.com
2. I will ask for a digital image of your child, preferably not a cell phone image, as cell phone images tend to be a bit on the grainy side. The image cannot have any copyright issues from another professional photographer.
3. Payment of $35 is required before image is delivered.
4. You will have an image you can print out as it will be a high resolution digital .jpeg image.
Are you familiar with a composite photo? It's when you take two or more photos and put them together using some photoshop magic and voila! you get the Santa from one photo and your kids from another photo and get something like this.
This year, a composite photo is your safest bet for your annual Santa photos. Here in NJ, the covid numbers are unfortunately rising again and we're all trying to stay safe and keep our loved ones safe, so why not go for the safe bet this year and get the composite photo, right?
I am grateful we had Santa two days this year, one at a tree farm and one in the studio and now, we can still have Santa photos only in a different and defintely safe manner. This also works out for the kids who may be a little afraid of the big guy and...for those kids who think they're a little too old to visit Santa...Really, are you ever to old for Santa?? ...never....
If you're interested, please reach out. This will be available Now through December 10th. The earlier you reach out to me, the better chance you have of a quicker turn around time.

THANK YOU FAMILIES AND THANK YOU SANTA.
I called Santa back in July and we were able to pencil in some dates. We ended up with two dates for Santa mini sessions this year; one day we were in a tree farm on a mostly warm-ish and extremely sunny day in October and then in November, I held an indoor Santa minis day and would you believe, it was warmer on this November day than it was at the tree farm in October the month earlier.
With everything going on, and being here in New Jersey where the rules and restrictions change so quickly, I'm very grateful to have seen all of these families this year and to offer a special Santa experience; I needed it as much as they did.
The sessions weren't the norm, however, we did manage to make it feel festive, special and have some of that Christmas magic, too. My assistant asked questions, took temperatures and made sure everyone stayed a good distance apart. The smell of Lysol overtook the smell of baked cookies and pine needles at the studio, but that's ok. I think we're all very used to that smell being so prevalent by now.
Although noone sat on Santa's lap this year, the interaction the children and families had with Santa was certainly memorable.
I arranged these sessions at my old home studio this year since there is a little more room and we wouldn't have the interaction with the other businesses in the building; it was definitely a good call and a safer, more controlled environment this way. I'm so grateful that everyone remembered their masks and were so cooperative during the entire process. Next year, I'll be at what right now I'm calling my NEW STUDIO, as I just moved out of my Flanders studio and I'm photographing exclusively now at the new studio, not my old or home studio. The new studio is 172 Landing Road, Landing, NJ.
I'm grateful to say we had a wonderful Holiday season of minis, as of today, all of the families have received their portrait galleries and right after I'm done writing this blog, I'm going to put up my own Christmas tree with my kids. I'm done working for the day but back at it tomorrow with a 3 1/2 month old at the studio and 5 sessions this week and then that's it for Holiday sessions. I need time to dedicate to my newborn, milestone and maternity clients that are coming in between now and the end of the year as long as we are still allowed to work here in Jersey, I will be working and taking all necessary & a few extra precautions. I hope we don't get shut down again, however, I'm so grateful for all of the holiday sessions we were able to fit in before any major restrictions or shut downs came into place this fall & winter.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday season of mini sessions! Wishing you all a very happy AND HEALTHY Holiday Season!

What have I learned from having a photography studio for two years? Well, I did have an in-home photography studio for 8 years before leaving the home, but I flew the coop; I made the decision two years ago to go out on an adventure and I jumped in with two feet by announcing I'm getting a studio.
Why would I get a studio when I could work at home, right? After all, working at home is less overhead, I could keep costs down, it's easier to have everything right there at my fingertips, why on earth would I want to leave a rent-free space for my own designated space that is much smaller than my home studio and 600x more money than my home studio?
Well, how many of you are working from home right now? Need I say more? It's challenging; it's full of distractions and Geezus, I had a pair of scissors here five minutes ago, where are they? Someone is always moving or borrowing my stuff, so it was time to go. Time to move out. This afforded me more opportunity to get creative because I had some time with no distractions.
Was I afraid? Of course! I was terrified if anyone would come to my studio and it happened; I put an ad out to the public and people started to come in, and then they told their friends and word of mouth started to grow.
Then...covid hit. The killer of both people and businesses. I survived; I had a wonderful woman whom I've met through business, Theresa at Jeremiah's catering in Parsippany and she hired me for food photography during the shut down period and I survived; she gave me hope and I kept moving forward.
I had clients bring their babies in after the shut down, we discussed in detail the covid requirements, what I was doing to keep everyone safe at the studio, such as temperature checks, not working with an assistant (which I miss very much!), an air purifier machine along with only seeing one client per day. I'm still plugging along and moving forward, albeit slowly, but moving forward.
I've learned so much and there have been so many changes since covid and so many within my business alone; I've learned I need more space, so I'm getting ready to move into a bigger studio space and have some different offerings for my future clients. This move was for several reasons, I love my current space, I'd love to keep both spaces, however, with covid and not wanting to gamble with future income, It's safest to just have the one studio which for me is closer to home and my student aged children. It will be much easier for me to pop in or for them to pop in by my studio during the day and check in on each other; this was a big reason for the move.
The bigger space will allow me a larger variety of options, backgrounds, set ups etc. for my newborn and maternity clients, which is what I mainly offer at the studio.
I've learned that the packages I offer aren't a great fit for everyone, so the packages and offerings will be switching around to a more ala carte menu for 2021. You'll get to choose what you want and only purchase those items and nothing you really won't use.
My main goal for 2020 was FOCUS. that was my mantra even before covid hit through 2020...FOCUS.. I'm working on my mantra for 2021, but I think it'll be something like step up, upward and onward or up my game. The plan is to take the necessary steps which will allow for more creativity and more time devoted to each client. I am already registered for several new classes, I've recently upgraded some equipment, I'll be offering a wider variety of photography and print options for my clients along with a wonderful experience when they enter the studio for their sessions.
I'M EXCITED! I'm so excited and very nervous at the same time.
I am praying for the same or even better response with the new studio, which really is only about 3 miles from the old studio and SO close to Route 80. People will come through the door. I hope to see many familiar faces and add new ones, too. I'll be more ready than ever.
Thanks for reading.

A random fact about me....I've always related to Alice in Wonderland. Actually, no, not always, when i was a child, I though the movie was creepy, however, as I grew up and became an adult, the story had deeper meaning to me. I'm always looking for something new to do, I try to learn something new once in a while and I'm pushing the boundaries and right now, in the middle of the covid pandemic and seasonal mini sessions and the holidays around the corner, I've decided to push my boundaries even more and move my studio.
I'm moving to 172 Landing Road, Landing, NJ next month.
The excitement of a new place makes my heart pound. I'm actually both nervous and excited because it looks like we may be headed into another lockdown and then what... perhaps I'll be a small business that can't do business. We don't know what our future has in store for us right now; it's a lot like the Alice in Wonderland story, don't you think so? She just kept falling deeper into the rabbit hole and deeper into her dream, we just keep riding these waves, not knowing when the next one will hit or how hard it will be.
I'm trying to keep myself distracted with the thoughts of my new space; there are many things about the new studio I'm excited about. One thing I'm truly excited to announce is that it's on the first floor; if you've been to my current studio, you know it's on the second floor, which isn't so great sometimes for moms recovering from giving birth. We all love my space there, but I seem to be outgrowing it for sure. This new space isn't much bigger, however, the layout is just open space as opposed to having some walls at my current space, which breaks up the area and makes it feel pretty small.
This new studio is not far from my current, soon to be my 'old' studio; infact it is just one half mile off of Exit 28 on Route 80 West. It's so easy to get to. I'm in a little strip mall, with Fresh Cutz barber shop and Dr. Knobelman, who's actually our family Chiropractor. I'll be across from Landing Park, too which will allow more options for outdoor pictures for my clients.
Well, hey, I just wanted to pop on with a few exciting thoughts that are swirling around in my mind. Right now, it just turned November 3rd, its 12:03 am. I just got done with edits, edits and more edits from the tree farm mini sessions I held a little over 2 weeks ago and also some maternity sessions that I recently had. Tomorrow I get to head into the studio and design a few sets for a 3 week old baby boy coming in later this week and also my last day of holiday mini sessions is this Saturday, 9-1 with Santa. I'm excited and getting a bit of anxiety at the same time as I have to check, double and triple check that we are following all of the necessary covid protocols with Saturday; temperature screenings, questionnaires, masks, sanitizers, cleaners, contracts...I'd so much rather it just be about photos and fun, however, current times call for different routine.
Just keep riding the wave...keep exploring the rabbit hole....I'm curious to see what's on the other side of all of this, aren't you?
Be well, Be safe!

Even though it's a crazy year...even though this year has brought so much turmoil to all of our lives, even though our spirits may be bruised, somehow Christmas Spirit and Santa can always make you feel happiness and joy.
When I contacted Santa a few months back, I asked about this year's photo sessions and he said we'll have to social distance, but let's talk about how we can make this happen. So Santa and I got together for a little brainstorming session at the studio and we came up with a few dates. Although not everything panned out the way I had hoped, I'm very happy to have made many of my clients happy this year by offering some Santa Minis.
We had one day at a tree farm and I still have one day open, November 7th, with Santa, which is just about filled up. The November 7th date is indoors at my home studio this year. It will allow for a little more social distancing ability than my photo studio, as the space is a little bit bigger and We don't have to fear running into the different businesses that are in the same building as the studio is.
I wanted to get Santa nice and early in the season since life keeps changing I feel by the day and by the week, I thought the earlier in the season, the better and who knew if there would be a Santa at the mall this year, so I'm so grateful that Santa was open to these sessions and that families were open to the social distance Santa experience this year.
November 7th, we will be taking temperature checks and asking questions before entering the studio space for photos. This year has been more electronic 'paperwork' than ever as well, however, we're making it happen. The sessions are lasting 20 minutes, and we're taking an extra 10 minutes after the session to clean and sanitize the space before the next family walks in. These sessions are very limited, however, I think it's great the kids & families will have a little one-on-one with the Big Guy this season.
I hope you all stay healthy. Please take all precautions and don't forget to stay positive, smile often and wash your hands.

Millie Dee Photography is currently in Flanders, NJ, will be moving to Landing, NJ January 1, 2021.
Halloween has been my favorite holiday for decades. The inside of my house turns into a skeleton & scary clown fest. I try to get to Salem, MA every year or so with my kids, too.
I think what draws me to this Holiday called Halloween is that I or we all get to be creative; it's a time that you're creativity can shine. I get to be someone else for a day; however, I do feel that Halloween is more of a lifestyle than a Holiday.
It's just fun! My assistant saw some photos titled 'boo-doir' somewhere on social media and tagged me in the post so I could try it, too. Before a newborn session one morning, the family was just a few minutes behind schedule and I was all set up, I had this skeleton in the car, so I took a crack at my first 'boodoir' photosession.
I must say, I fell in love with posing this skeleton right away; I was amazed that this pile of bones could actually hold some of the poses.
For the past several years, I've had a Halloween themed portrait session, but one was a family portrait of all of my creepy dolls and the other two were of a creepy monster baby swaddled up like in the newborn photos.
I've been wanting to create a Halloween themed photo session around fog and special lights, but that may need to wait for next year since this is what I created this year. Although, I can totally see this Boodoir session happening again next year; perhaps it will become an annual event; a Halloween tradition, such as pumpkin picking, hay rides and drinking fresh apple cider from the farm.
These are just a few of the poses; I have about a dozen of them that I love. If you're interested in viewing more of them, I'm sure I'll be posting them to my social media. Please follow me at: ig: millie_dee_photo and fb: MillieDee Photography.
Happy Halloween, 2020 style, everyone!
Stay Scary Healthy this year!
I KNOW I'VE SAID IT BEFORE, BUT I REALLY DO HAVE THE BEST JOB. I GET TO MAKE PEOPLE SMILE.
IT'S A SPECIAL GIFT TO MEET A NEW CLIENT FOR THEIR MATERNITY SESSION, AND GET TO SEE THEM AGAIN FOR THEIR NEWBORN'S FIRST PHOTO SESSION AND OTHER MILESTONE SESSIONS, LIKE THE BABY'S 3, 6 9 MONTH PHOTOS, ALL WORKING UP TO THE BIG FIRST BIRTHDAY!
SOMETIMES I JUST GET TO SEE THEM FOR PART OF THIS JOURNEY AND EITHER WAY, IT'S ALWAYS A PRECIOUS OCCASION TO CELEBRATE THESE BIG MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE.
THIS LITTLE GUY CAME TO ME, WELL, HIS MOMMY BROUGHT HIM TO ME FOR HIS NEWBORN PHOTOS. AND WE GOT TO MEET UP AGAIN FOR HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY.
HE'S THE LITTLE BROTHER WITH TWO BIG SISTERS...WHO CAN RELATE TO THIS? (ME).... I'M THE OLDEST OF 3, MY SISTER IS THE MIDDLE CHILD AND MY BROTHER IS THE BABY...AND WE ALWAYS SAID HE'S THE FAVORITE. HAHA... HE'S STILL THE FAVORITE, I CAN'T LIE!
THIS LITTLE GUY COMPLETES HIS FAMILY. HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY, LITTLE GUY!
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR KIDS, ALLOWING ME TO BE PART OF THESE PRECIOUS OCCASIONS IN YOUR LIVES.
WE'RE GEARING UP FOR HOLIDAY MINI SESSIONS, WHICH CAN I BE HONEST, IS ALWAYS FULL OF ANXIETY FOR ME. WILL THE WEATHER BE NICE? WILL EVERYONE SHOW UP? WILL THEY BE ON TIME? WILL EVERYONE FIND THE LOCATION OK? THERE'S SO MUCH BEHIND THE SCENES WORK ON PROPS, SCHEDULING, AND THIS YEAR, COVID HAS ADDED AN EXTRA LAYER OF STRESS. IT'S LIKE HAVING AN EXTRA HOLIDAY TO CONSIDER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON. HA.
I LOVE SEEING THE FAMILIES EVERY YEAR, GETTING TO SEE THE KIDS GROWING UP, GETTING TO SEE THE PARENTS AND TALK TO THEM FOR A FEW MINUTES. IT'S TRULY A JOY FOR ME.
AS SOME OF YOU KNOW, MY STUDIO IS MOVING FROM FLANDERS TO LANDING. IT'S REALLY JUST A COUPLE OF MILES DOWN THE ROAD AND I'M EXCITED THAT THIS LOCATION WILL STILL JUST BE 1/2 MILE FROM ROUTE 80 AND I'M IN A LITTLE STRIP MALL, 172 LANDING ROAD, LANDING,NJ. I'LL BE NEXT TO A CHIROPRACTOR AND BABERSHOP AND ACROSS FROM A PARK. THIS SPACE IS JUST A LITTLE BIT BIGGER, BUT I'M EXCITED OVER THE NEW OPPORTUNITIES IT WILL OFFER FOR ME AND FOR MY CLIENTS.
I HOPE TO ALSO START SELLING MY DEEVA FUEL COFFEE OUT OF THE NEW LOCATION AND TO OFFER MY CLIENTS TO JUST STOP BY WHEN THEY'RE IN THE AREA FOR A CUP OF COFFEE AND CONVERSATION TO CATCH UP WITH THEM!
I'M ALSO EXCITED TO HOPEFULLY HAVE A VERY SMALL LOUNGE AND HEADSHOT STATION SET UP THERE...OKAY, THAT WILL BE FOR ANOTHER POST SOMEDAY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
WHATEVER YOU'RE CELEBRATING THESE DAYS, MAKE SURE TO CAPTURE YOUR MOMENTS AND SHARE THEM!
MILLIE DEE PHOTOGRAPHY
I'M DETERMINED TO KEEP SOME 'NORMALCY' DURING THE CRAZIEST YEAR OF OUR LIVES. SANTA IS VISITING THE STUDIO THIS YEAR! SANTA WILL BE WITH US FOR 3 DAYS, OCTOBER 18TH AT THE TREE FARM IN NEWTON AND NOVEMBER 7 & 8 IN THE STUDIO.
WE'RE HAVING SOCIAL DISTANCE SANTA PHOTOS THIS YEAR, SO THERE IS NO SITTING ON SANTA'S LAP AND MASKS NEED TO BE WORN UNTIL PHOTOS ARE BEING TAKEN. HOWEVER, WE HAVE IDEAS...SANTA CAN READ A BOOK TO THEM, HE COULD PEEK BEHIND THE TREE OR THE CABIN AND SHARE SILLY LITTLE MOMENTS TOGETHER FROM A FAR...ALOT OF KIDS DON'T LIKE GETTING TOO CLOSE TO SANTA ANYWAY, SO WE'RE USED TO HAVING A "PLAN B" IT'S JUST THE "PLAN B" IS PLAN A THIS YEAR DUE TO COVID.
THESE ARE HAPPENING AT MY HOME STUDIO THIS YEAR IN LANDING, NJ. THE HOME STUDIO HAS ITS OWN ENTRANCE & DRIVEWAY AND IS DIVIDED FROM THE REST OF THE HOUSE. I FEEL THIS IS A BETTER LOCATION THAN THE FLANDERS STUDIO BECAUSE, FOR ONE, THERE IS MORE ROOM, SO IT WILL BE EASIER TO SOCIAL DISTANCE AND SECOND, WE DON'T HAVE TO CONTEND WITH THE OTHER BUSINESSES AND THEIR CLIENTS AS WE DO AT THE FLANDERS STUDIO LOCATION, AS WE'RE TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON SOCIAL INTERACTION WITH OTHERS.
SESSIONS ARE RUNNING IN 20 MINUTES INCREMENTS, HOWEVER, THEY'RE BEING BOOKED ON THE HALF HOUR, EVERY 30 MINUTES, TO ALLOW 10 MINUTES IN BETWEEN SESSIONS FOR PROPER CLEANING & DISINFECTING.
I'M ALSO EXCITED BECAUSE WE'RE GETTING SANTA IN THE STUDIO NICE AND EARLY THIS YEAR; JUST A WEEK AFTER HALLOWEEN. IT'S ALMOST LIKE WE'RE CRAMMING IN THE HOLIDAYS ALL TOGETHER THIS YEAR, SORRY, HOWEVER, I WANTED TO PLAY IT AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE. I BELIEVE WHERE THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A WAY. WE'RE FOLLOWING COVID GUIDELINES AND THERE WILL BE A WAIVER TO SIGN. (OH, WHAT OUR LIVES HAVE BECOME JUST FOR SOME HAPPY PHOTOS!). HOWEVER, IT IS WHAT IT IS THIS YEAR, I'M JUST EXCITED TO HAVE A LITTLE NORMAL AMONGST THE CHAOS TO OFFER SANTA AND HOLIDAY PHOTOS.
IT'S A HAPPY TIME FOR MANY AND I HOPE TO OFFER SOME HAPPINESS HERE FOR FAMILIES ALONG WITH SAFETY.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MINI SESSIONS OR COVID GUIDELINES, ETC. I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ...PLEASE REACH OUT THROUGH WWW.MILLIEDEEPHOTOGRAPHY.COM OR CALL 973.805.FOTO. WISHING THE HAPPIEST AND HEALTHIEST HOLIDAY SEASON FOR EVERYONE
THE PREGNANCY...I'VE HAD THE EXPERIENCE TWICE IN MY LIFE. BECOMING A MOTHER IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM IS A LIFE CHANGING EVENT. IF YOU GET TO EXPERIENCE THE GIFT OF GROWING A BABY IN YOUR WOMB, IT'S SOMETHING PRECIOUS THAT NOT EVERYONE GETS TO EXPERIENCE THIS PART OF LIFE. IT MAY NOT FEEL LIKE A GIFT EVERY DAY WITH THE SICKNESS IN THE BEGINNING, GROWING EACH DAY AND BY THE END PROBABLY HAVING TROUBLE SLEEPING, HOWEVER, BRINGING A LIFE INTO THIS WORLD IS A BIG DEAL...YOU'RE MAKING A BRAND NEW PERSON...IT'S A CELEBRATION OF A NEW LIFE. HOW DO YOU PLAN TO CELEBRATE? PORTRAITS ARE A GREAT WAY TO CAPTURE THIS TEMPORARY TIME IN YOUR LIFE. IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, EVEN IF YOU'RE PREGNANT SEVERAL TIMES, THAT BABY BELLY IS ONLY TEMPORARY. IT'S A PART OF YOUR LIFE, IT BECOMES YOUR LIFE AND ONCE THE BABY IS HERE, THE BUMP STARTS TO GO AWAY AS IT'S ONLY THERE IN THE BEGINNING STAGES OF YOUR MOTHERHOOD JOURNEY.
I WENT TO SCHOOL FOR BIOLOGY (YEP, NOT FOR PHOTOGRAPHY), THE STUDY OF LIFE HAS ALWAYS FASCINATED ME SO PERHAPS IT'S PART OF THE REASON I'M IN AWE OF PREGNANCY. I'M GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO CAPTURE THIS TIME IN A WOMAN'S LIFE; IN HER FAMILY'S LIFE. THE PHOTOS FREEZE A MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE'S HISTORY AND YOU CAN LOOK AT THEM AND REMINISCE...
SO WHEN IS A GOOD TIME DURING THE PREGNANCY TO CAPTURE THESE PHOTOS? MY FEELING IS ANY DAY AND EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY FOR PICTURES. WELL, HOW IS MAMA LOOKING AND FEELING? TRADITIONALLY, THE MATERNITY PORTRAITS ARE TAKEN DURING THE END OF THE SECOND TRIMESTER BECAUSE THE BABY BELLY IS SHOWING AND MOM STILL HAS SOME ENERGY. ONCE THE PREGNANCY IS NEARING THE END OF THE THIRD TRIMESTER, MOM IS USUALLY TIRED, NOT SLEEPING WELL AND NOT FEELING LIKE HERSELF, AFTER ALL, THAT BABY IS ALMOST FULLY GROWN, SO DURING SECOND TRIMESTER IS IDEAL.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE THE PHOTOS? THE MORE ADVANCED NOTICE YOU GIVE TO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, THE BETTER THE PLANNING; YOU CAN DISCUSS IDEAS YOU HAVE, ORDER OUTFITS, HAVE THE HAIR, MAKEUP NAILS DONE, ETC. ALL OF THIS TAKES PLANNING; ALOT OF THOUGHT, PREPARATION AND EFFORT GOES INTO THE "BTS" BEHIND THE SCENES TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS HAPPEN ALTHOUGH IT DOESN'T ALWAYS GET TO BE PLANNED, SPONTANEOUS CAN WORK OUT SOMETIMES, TOO, HOWEVER "THERE'S SOMETHING TO BE SAID FOR PLANNING AHEAD".
EITHER WAY, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, ANY DAY IS A GOOD DAY FOR PHOTOS...OKAY YES, THERE MAY BE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS, BUT I'M SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE SENTIMENT.
IF YOU'RE ON THE FENCE ABOUT PHOTOS, ASK QUESTIONS, CALL A FEW PLACES, HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT IT....I LOVE WHAT I DO...I CAPTURE THESE SPECIAL MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE....AND ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN....THESE BRIEF MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE BECOME YOUR HISTORY....ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN...THEY'RE FOREVER PART OF YOUR MEMORIES THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR GROWING LITTLE ONES.
ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY! CELEBRATE IT! DOCUMENT IT!
Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
