Announcing 2011 Holiday Portrait Details!

Hello friends!

It’s the beginning of November and that special time of year is upon us. A chill in the air, leaves turning warm golden tones (even here in Southern California, I’m seeing them change on my street!), thoughts of curling up in front of the fireplace with hot cocoa, spiced cider… or maybe one of the above with a little spike or two added to the warmed beverage of choice. (Mulled wine, anyone? My mom makes it every year for Halloween and it’s sooooo good!)

So, right down to details. I’m offering 3 packages to choose from this year, instead of one-size-fits all. I think with these, there’s something for everyone. Also, this year I’m setting up 3 days in advance at 3 pre-determined locations, so you just pick your package, book your appointment and show up!



  • session length: time for each session will be reserved as indicated based on the package you choose
  • retouched files: in addition to high-resolution retouched files, I will also provide matching low-resolution, watermarked files for you to share on Facebook, etc
  • download vs. disk: with the download only option, you will be provided a password to download your files whereas with the disk option, I will send you your images on disk in addition to making the images available for download too
  • holiday cards: option 3 comes with a bonus of 25, 5×7 (double-sided) holiday cards with envelopes, printed by my favorite vendor, and delivered directly to you!
