Happiest Baby Ever – Lavender Bathing Beauty Mini Session

Baby A volunteered as a model so that I could test out an idea I had. As many know, I offer this vintage Bathing Beauties session in studio every year. But this time, I wanted to take it outside and the fields at the Lavender Wind Farm seemed perfect for it. So I sent out a model call and we did the session a few days later. Being close to sunset, it was quite breezy. But luckily for us, it was a warm breeze so our little model was comfy the whole time. She was happy to explore the tub, accessories and the lavender. She was so sweet and easy to work with. After we finished the need bath images, we changed her into two other outfits. She stayed happy and full of smiles the whole time.

Big thanks to mom for helping out my assistant with the reflector towards the end as it got a little windier. Otherwise, it probably would have flew away.

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
The greatest compliment I can receive is a referral from YOU, my awesome clients.  Because I have been getting busier after returning from the break I took, I reinstated my Referral Rewards program.

Here’s how the program works:

  • For each new client you refer by word of mouth or by handing a referral card, I will reward you with a $15 credit*.
  • If you handed your friend an actual referral card, the 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 ($75 value) in ADDITION to your credits.
  • There is no limit on referrals.

Five referral cards are provided after your session is completed. They are sent out via USPS mail. If you need more, just let me know and I will send more.

Important Info:

  • *New client must mention your name at the time of scheduling. Once the session is completed, your credit will be awarded to you.
  • **They must mention at the card upon scheduling the session and must surrender the card at their session or mail it in prior to their session.

***NOTE: Watch for announcements for a temporary upgrades in the program throughout the year. They will be a limited time offer to new clients to help you earn faster. Announcements will be made via email newsletter, Facebook page and it will also be posted in the new Facebook group as well.
