Holiday Mini Session Dates are finally set!(updated 09.22.2010)
The holiday season is upon us (Well, not really yet for “normal” people but for photographers September is the start of the holiday season or how I like to refer to it : “CRAZY SEASON”) Things tend to take on a different speed in a time warp like fashion around this time of the year. I’ve been starring at the calendar over the last couple of days and really when it comes down to it, I am almost at capacity for the 2010 holiday season!!! Crazy, I know!! There’s a few weekend dates left in October and maybe a couple during the week but that’s it! If you are interested in booking a full session in time for the holidays please contact me as soon as possible. I have a feeling I will run out of dates very soon.
I do however have a few dates reserved to hold limited holiday mini sessions.
The mini sessions are ideal to get a new family picture for your holiday cards this year. They are quick fast paced sessions so they don’t necessarily work for everyone. If your kids tend to need some time to “warm up” in front of the camera or if you ‘d like a lot of variety in your images, different settings, outfits, mix of more posed and natural, unposed images – a full session is recommended. If you are looking to get that ONE good family picture or updated pictures of the kids then the mini sessions are perfect for you. And even if the thought of family pictures is too stressful you can also use any of these session for just the kids. Children must be at least 3 months old.
I am doing things a little different this year and will include high resolution files in the package price. An awesome value if you consider that individual high resolution files are normally $75 with the full sessions! What do you do with those files? You can take these to any print lab and get prints and enlargements at whichever size and quantity you ‘d like. Think about the potential, you could be set for holiday gifts for the whole family!!!I do provide print lab recommendations with those files to ensure best print quality.
Here are the details on the Mini Sessions:
- approx. 20-30 min session for up to 4 family members (must be same immediate family, additional family members are $25)
- 10 fully edited and retouched proofs in online gallery
- Pick 5 High resolution files on CD with print release to print to your heart’s content
- One 8 x 10 print
In addition to the files and print included in the session fee, I will be offering a range of custom designed holiday cards, 2011 calendars and specialty items such as mini accordion books, canvas prints, press printed coffee table books etc. Please inquire for a full price list.
