This was my second visit with this family and this time, we were able to get everyone together. Tracy had purchased a package of three sessions when her youngest arrived and this was session two. Phoenixville was a great backdrop, it was quaint, quiet, colorful and friendly. It was nice to get such a variety without having to go very far. I love how everyone was dressed, the colors all complemented one another without being too "matchy". The funniest part was that when I complimented Tracy on it, she said she hadn't even tried :) Either way, don't they all look great?!
I'm excited to share that Tiffany and Ryan's beautifully hand-crafted wedding at Friedman Farms in Dallas, Pennsylvania is being featured in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of the Knot Magazine. Pick one up for some great wedding inspiration!
I love these little kiddos. Some of my favorite shoots are with families who have hired me on a repeat basis and I get so excited when the kids remember me and are happy to see me, as was the case with this family. The whole family couldn't be sweeter and every time I think the kids couldn't get any cuter, they do. Can't wait to see you all in 2012!
I love weddings at the Phoenixville Foundry. It is such a unique and grand space and from what I've overheard there, guests are always impressed by it too. Marisa and Mike decided to have their wedding just before Thanksgiving and it is always exciting shooting a wedding around that time of year. You can feel everyone getting excited for the holidays and the wedding is another reason for celebration. The weather was unseasonably mild that day and it lent to a beautiful portrait session in downtown Phoenixville. Marisa's dad was sweet enough to contact the local movie theater and put the couple's name up on the marquee! It was one of the best personal touches I've ever seen.
Marisa and Mike, it was great working with you. Your families were and are wonderful and sweet and it was just such a nice day for us! Couples like you make me really love my job :)
With Thanksgiving only two days away, I thought it would be a great time to offer a holiday promotion to all of you. I am so thankful for all of my wonderful clients throughout the year. You truly make me love what I do and I can't express how much I appreciate your business and your support. The ability to turn something I love into a career has never been something I've taken for granted. I am thankful for each day, each job and each client.
This year, I'll be offering a discount on portrait sessions, as I've had many inquiries about gifting sessions to family and friends for the holidays. You'll have two options to choose from, as listed below.
From now until December 19, portrait sessions may be purchased for 20% off the normal rates. That means that instead of the normal (all-inclusive) rate of $400, you'll get the session, online proofing gallery and high resolution disk for $320 (plus tax). You can buy a session for yourself or a friend so just send me an email and I'll get your certificate shipped out in time for the holidays!
Additionally, sessions can be purchased a la carte (without the high resolution disk) at the normal rate and print credits can be purchased for 50% off. This means that a $200 print credit would only be $100. Please email me with any questions and I look forward to meeting and photographing your friends and families!
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season!
*Limit 4 per person.
