So many new and fun things are happening with us here at the studio. In January we attended the national Professional Photographer of America Imaging USA conferene in New Orleans. If you ever have the opportunity to visit that wonderful city just go. It is full of interesting architecture, history, wonderful restaurants and of course the diversity of the french quarter. We are so excited to share with all that we learned while there. We took some outdoor lighting classes, had models to photograph and learned some different techniques. We were a bit overwhelmed with the trade show , (if you have ever been to one, you know what we mean) so many new products, backgrounds, lighting techniques and items we will be offering in the very near future. It get's you all excited and motivated to create new ideas and looks for all of you our fabulous clients.
We have added a new and fun feature to our viewing program. It's called "Room View" and what it can do is show you how your new portraits will look on the walls of your home! That's right no more guessing on what size will display best in your room. E-mail or bring us a photo of the space you would like to decorate and we can upload it into our program and show you exactly how it will look with or without a frame. We just love it and think you will too.
January and February were such a nice treat with very little snow, I think we would all enjoy a winter like we just had every year. We were busy with CHS Winter Ball which was at West Valley Inn, Western Coventry Family Fun Night at Yawgoo Ski Park doing tubing, and Washington Oak's Mother Daughter event at The Pastry Gourmet. Lots of memories that we help you enjoy forever.
March brought us the ever so popular portraits with live bunnies! We saw so many beautiful Easter dresses and cute expressions when they first see the bunnies. Parents are always so amazed at how the bunnies keep even the most busy two year old's attention. The bunnies are very well behaved but every now and then may nibble on a dress or pair of shoes. This year we had our first contest for the Cutest Bunny Portrait on facebook where the most likes/comments won a free 16x20 portrait from any session. Chelsea Martin was our winner this year with 235 likes! Congratulations Chelsea! We will be doing more contests cause everyone likes to win contests.
And now April is here and we are gearing up for a busy youth sports league season, ladies choice dances, proms and weddings. Also we are participating in a nationwide fundraising event for Operation Smile. They help children all over the world with cleft lip, palete and other facial deformities. For every ten smiles we photograph, one precious smile will be saved. 100% of your donation goes to Operation Smile. For a minimum donation of $24 you'll receive the gift of a portrait mini session, a desk sized portrait or a custom facebook timeline cover. We will be doing this promotion will be a fun activity for April vacation. Call to reserve your space they will be offered on April 16th - April 18th.
Also we are so excited for our TuTu's and Tie's promotion. We have been stocking up on lots of different colors, style and types of both for your little one to come and play dress up and get some fabulous images for you to enjoy for years. These would make great Mother's and Father's Day gifts too. We are having another contest for this event too. We are so excited to be giving away another 16x20 portrait. Can't wait to see who will win!
