Good Lord, it's been precisely forever and four days since my last blog post. This summer got crazy busy between my family travel time and sessions that were sometimes back to back to back. But we got through it, and it's time to get back to the blog. I enjoy giving people a more broad look at my sessions rather than a small snapshot of an image that goes on my facebook page.
I will return to that Monday or Tuesday, beginning with baby Ashlyn.
However, today, I want to discuss the Christmas Mini's. I have likely chosen the backdrop based on the overwhelming favorite on my facebook page.
If you are not crazy about this, and want to see the other options, go to my facebook page and feel free to let me know which is your favorite.
I am so fortunate that VIPet Grooming in the Galleria Mall has graciously offered to host my mini sessions again this year. Keeping in mind that people many times use these for their holiday cards, I am hoping to offer these sessions either the weekend before Thanksgiving, or the weekend after. In the interest of time I am also doing away with the CD's this year (unless you specifically request them). I will instead be offering digital downloads. Once you let me know which images you would like out of your gallery, those images will be made available in your gallery to download. This gives you instant access instead of having to wait several days on your mail. You will be able to work on your holiday cards that much quicker and get them sent out.
These will be $125 and include 6 digital images for downloading and a half hour session. If you have not worked with me before, there will also be an online gallery for viewing and sharing, available for three weeks. Additional prints may also be purchased through your gallery at a discounted price. Your digital downloads will also be watermark free and you can print these at your convenience with your print release. I will give you some recommendations of where to print through and I cannot be held responsible for quality if printed elsewhere. Unfortunately, Walmart's, Target's and local pharmacies are not equipped to print professional images and many times, images will appear slightly distorted and colors skewed when printing professional images through these locations. I would highly suggest Mpix.com and I have found shutterfly to be quite reliable. Nationsphotolab.com is also highly recommended. If you're unsure of a place, sent me a quick message and I would be happy to give you a thumbs up or down. These above listed places also have wonderful holiday card templates available as well and I know at least Mpix has an option to upload your OWN template, if you have one.
If you would like to be placed on my email list when dates are confirmed, please leave your email in the comments below, or if you're not comfortable with that, send me a quick PM or an email letting me know. These will be pre-paid sessions to keep things moving quickly and easily the day of. These are also being offered to clients of VIPet Grooming so I expect times to be limited and to fill in fast. People that leave their email will be informed of the dates and times for these mini sessions before they are listed on my facebook page, so they will have first access to times.
I hope to see some new families and some returning families! Spread the word, tell your friends and let's make this a great mini session.
OH! And because it's being hosted by the lovely VIPet Grooming, pets are welcomed, but not necessary!
