There will be a few changes that I want to implement in 2017....
This year we will be doing monthly themed mini sessions Below are a few possible ideas of what is to come...also with this those that do them every month will recieve a free calander at the end of the year and will be able to purchase extras for gifts for those on your shopping list.
WHAT IS A MINI/THEME SESSION?
A “Mini” or “Theme” session is a short session (20 minutes) that is located on a set or scene where you can come and get quick updated pictures in fun settings monthly for a great price.
Most often the scenes will be in studio. Mini sessions sometimes will be outdoors depending on the season or weather. These sessions are predetermined times and locations.
I typically designate one weekend OR 1 weekday and 1 weekend day (to open more options for you) a month for the mini sessions. I try and mix them up from any other year...ie-So this years Pumpkin Patch will be slightly different from last years keeping it exciting and fresh for both me and you…I love to shop for props and this gives me an excellent excuse. I already feel my husbands eyes rolling as I can turn most anything into a prop idea :)
Here is a list of the types of themed sessions I am considering
January – Valentine’s Day in PJs (Great for kids cards for school!) Possibly Super Heros
February – Royal Affair-Baking
March - Easter-Pets
April – Bluebonnets and Poppys -Mommy and Me
May – Urban Family or Gone Fishing possibly for Daddy and Me
June – Patriotic
July - Innocence of Summer-variety of options that I am super excited to see come together
August – Back to School
October – Pumpkin Patch
November – Winter/Holiday
December – Winter/Holiday however will be taking limited sessions 1st 2 weeks only so that I can spend time with my family while the kids are on break from school until the new year.
Please note these are only ideas that are rolling around my head and are subject to change on some depending on what I end up pulling completely together. I am also wanting to do a Beach day in there sometime when we warm up but before it gets too hot!!! We are already working on newborn beach scene with big seashell...be on the look out for examples of this to come soon. We realize many moms are hesitant to take their babies to the beach but maybe want that cute look so we want to accomodate :)
Another change is all sessions you will receive a web ready watermarked photo of the prints you ordered so that you will be able to share on your fb page. I will continue in person reveal sessions as I definitely prefer to keep that one on one contact with my clients. I feel this is very important and after much feedback I know it is important to you my client as well. I do appreciate those that gave feedback on this aspect as well as prints vs digitals. Happy to know majority prefers professional prints. All our hardwork...yours and mine...deserve to be displayed on your walls. It is proven portraits of your children on your walls give them a sense of security and that they belong there in the home.
Also all sessions will now require a $50 reservation fee (unless otherwise stated for lower priced mini session special in which case that will need to be paid for in full)...this will hold your time guaranteed and an 11x14 wall portrait of photo of your choosing at your reveal session. This will be non refundable however will be transferred 1 time should there be a last minute emergency or someone become sick etc. Without this I can't any longer confirm your date and time.
If you purchase Digitals they will only be downloads from our website with exception of some wedding pkgs as they also come with customized USB otherwise you will need to furnish your own flashdrive if you are not computer savvy or maybe are not comfortable with downloading your images. Most computers don't have CD drives today and many have even told me some of their devices don't have usb ports. I am using a new service for your images and the download process should be much easier and will even be able to do so from your phone. As with any new system there may be glitches or learning curves on my part but from what I have experienced thus far it seems pretty easy.
I think this pretty much sums it up for now...I hope the New Year is amazing to you it's a fresh clean slate lets make the best of this new chapter in our lives. Be sure to call or text to schedule your appointments... 210-876-4075
