Save Money - Be Early - Avoid Stress

Save Money - Be Early - Avoid Stress

Stress from holiday preparation tasks can detract from the enjoyment of time spent with loved ones. Envious are the frantic procrastinators of the unruffled who completed holiday details months in advance. This year become (or continue to be) that unruffled person by getting your holiday cards done early - and save money to boot!

Consider purchasing a mini-session collection. Over the next month, I will be reserving dates for shorter sessions at substantially reduced prices. These sessions are not for those seeking a selection from hundreds of images in a wide variety of poses (aka full sessions) or the creation of eighty-page fine-art albums. These sessions are for those for those who want a few quality images for holiday cards, gifts and yearly wall updates. Each package includes a 1/2 hour session and at least 10-20 edited images from which to choose.

All mini-sessions photographed before September 24th, where clients order within 20 days of the posting the images on the web, will have their holiday cards by Thanksgiving (far sooner for most sessions).

All slots will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. I will try and accomodate anyone who desires a different date and/or location; however, to schedule a new date, there needs to be at least two groups willing to come on that date (bring another family).

Last year I did these mini-sessions on a trial basis and it worked wonderfully. Clients were able to get quality images at a reduced prices. I was able (to some degree) to avoid the end-of-year holiday rush. It really turned out to be real win/win!
