All the Purple – Mini Session

This little lady is my daughter’s best friend. She lives in our neighborhood and they are always together giggling and being silly. Like my daughter, she is not a big fan of being photographed. This was my second time working with her and I could tell she was much more comfortable this time. Not sure if it was because she knows how I work or if it was the soothing lavender smell that relaxed her. Whatever it was… it was perfect. We met over at the Lavender Wind Farm in Coupeville around 8:00pm and got right to it. The sun was still pretty bright but we worked around it as it gradually began to set. I was able to get bright and fun along with dramatic glows of gold. Big thanks to mom who helped out my assistant with holding a reflector. It got pretty breezy and my reflector is pretty big so it was such a big help to have a second set of hands to keep it from flying away.

Thank you for choosing me for this fun and beautiful session! I can’t wait to see these printed out. They are going to be so perfect.

Missing You – OpLove Mid-Deployment Session

Deployment is something my family knows very well. I have been a military spouse for 21 years now and no matter how many deployments we have been through, it’s never easy and never something you get used to. Being a part of Operation: Love Reunited gives me the opportunity to give back to other military spouses in my area. I offer free pre and mid-deployment sessions for military families throughout the year. The theme is always patriotic and the goal is to capture to LOVE. Each session includes a free set of 15 images (chosen by the family) to send to the military member while he is away. If you would like to schedule an OpLove session with me, click HERE for more information.

I was contacted by this family for a mid-deployment session. Husband/Dad is currently deployed and so this session’s goal is to send him some images to bring a smile to his face. He is missed, he is loved and his girls are anxiously waiting for his return.

New Lingo… to make it all easier

I’m always trying to update my site to make it easy to navigate and understand. Since introducing my digital session options, there had still been some confusion about what they include and how they work. And there was also confusion on whether or not I offered my old session options as well. So I updated wording again to help out with the differences.

OLD NAME: “Session Only”
NEW NAME: “Print Session”

A Print Session includes the session, complete editing of proofs and proof gallery publication. These sessions do not include prints, but are called a “Print Session” because most clients who choose this option prefer to purchase prints over digital images. BUT, digital images (along with other products) may still be purchased using this session type. Some options include prints. Be sure to read all of the info to choose the best Print Session option that fits your needs.
Click HERE to view the Print Session options.

OLD NAME: “Digital Plus”
NEW NAME: “Digital Session”

A Digital Session includes the session, complete editing of proofs, proof gallery publication and an predetermined amount of high resolution images in download format only. These sessions do not include prints BUT, they (along with other products) may still be purchased using this session type. Some options include prints as well. Be sure to read all of the info to choose the best Print Session option that fits your needs.

Referral Rewards Are Back!

refcardchimp
I am grateful for your business and so recently, I sent out referral cards to all of your who had a session with me since August of 2016. Of course, these are not limited to only those clients. If you did not receive referral cards, reply to this email and I will send some out to you right away!

As mentioned in the card, the greatest compliment I can receive is a referral from YOU, my awesome clients. Here’s how the program works:

For each new client you refer (who schedules a session with me), I will reward you with a $15 credit to be applied towards a future session fee or your portrait order. And the new client will also receive a $15 credit that they may use towards their order.

Refer five friends and you will receive a complimentary print session (full session – $75 value) in ADDITION to your credits.

Five referral cards were provided. If you need more, just let me know and I will send more out. There is no limit on referrals.

***NOTE: Watch for an announcement for a temporary upgrade in the program. It will be a limited time offer to new clients to help you earn faster. I will send that info out soon. It will also be posted in he new Facebook group as well.

Mikayla – Oak Harbor High School, Class of 2017 – Senior Session

I’ve been photographing this young lady once a year, for the last four years. Her aunt (who she lives with) mentioned that Mikayla originally chose her class ring  over  pictures and then as she got close to the end of school year, they both wanted pictures. So I was so excited when they wrote to me and asked if I could do a senior mini session for her. Of course I would!

We had to split the session in two due to her needing to turn in her Oak Harbor High School NJROTC uniform. So we got together before she graduated and again after she graduated. We had a very laid back session. She told me all about her crazy grad night adventure to Disneyland and we talked about her NJROTC competitions too. My son is also in NJROTC and was in the Armed Drill Team with her. Mikayla also competed in Color Guard, so we saw her a lot through out the year.

Mikalya is also a Girl Scout. The day after our second session she left to camp. She’ll be back in August and then head off to Pacific Lutheran University in the fall!! She received $96,000 in academic scholarships from PLU and $1000 from the Soroptimist Oak Harbor. Isn’t that amazing!? Wow! I’m in awe of her determination. You go girl!

We had a great talking and laughing to and from the location as well as while were there. She is so ready to take on the next chapter in her life and it was so neat to hear her plans and excitement for the future. You are definitely going places girl! Can’t wait to hear and see you accomplish those goals!

Thank you for choosing me, I had a blast and am so honored to celebrate this milestone with you.
