2012 Holiday Portraits!

Hello, friends!

I am SO remiss in not blogging faithfully. Life proves to be crazy busy and that’s a wonderful, wonderful thing to be able to say, but I *do* get distracted by what I call “Pretty, Shiny Syndrome” (“Look! Over there! No… wait… now what’s that over here? Oh… what was I talking about again?!”) . I keep promising to post pictures here and update my main website, etc, but it has yet to be done! I’m hoping a little downtime over the holidays will give me that time I need to finally bring everything up to speed across the board. I’ve been shooting weddings (as a primary and a secondary shooter) quite a bit lately, and recently did a couple of maternity sessions that I’m in love with. IIf you scroll to the bottom of this post, you’ll see some of this past year’s “greatest hits” from last year’s holiday portraits, but in the meantime… let’s cut to the chase, shall we?

In the same vein of running behind, holiday photos come a little late this year — but nothing we can’t knock out before the holidays ACTUALLY arrive! So, it’s time to share the deets. Similar packages to last year, new locations, but with a little surprise added. 🙂 Read on.

Holiday Portraits 2012 – Package OptionsPINTHIS

So… in what was going to be a surprise, I decided to make public, after all. While the price has gone up (only by $5!) for the first 2 package options, the 3rd package has come down by $25 from last year! I’m throwing in 1 FREE pack of holiday cards (25 cards) for every holiday session this year! The trade-off? In order to expedite getting your awesome images to you, I’m *only* offering image downloads (via email or Dropbox, whichever you’d like), unless you want the whole gallery of images, sold separately (approximately 30-50 pictures per session).

I’ll be posting the holiday cards I’ll be using shortly, but if you end up loving them, I’m offering identical reprints, as seen below. Makes sending them out extra-easy!

Holiday Cards 2012 – Add-on OptionsPINTHIS

please note the following:

  • 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: this year, I’m only offering the download-only option; you will be provided a password to download your files from Dropbox, or, I can email the images to you directly. trust me – this will be a HUGE time-saver!
  • holiday cards:  this year, ALL mini-sessions come with a bonus of 25, 5×7 (double-sided) holiday cards with envelopes, printed by my favorite vendor, and delivered directly to you! Optional additional sets of 25 are available for purchase as well.
