Last weekend, in my parents' living room, I found myself staring at an old photograph displayed on a small easel - it shows my Grandma Mil hugging her own mother, my great-grandma Maggie, outside their farmhouse. My grandma is probably 30 or so in the portrait, and my great-grandma in her 60s. The image is grainy and a bit dark, but it's special to us nonetheless, as it is the only picture we have of them together.
I want to create images like that for you (minus the grainy and dark part, of course!).
How long has it been since you've had portraits done with your own mother?
Do you have portraits of you and your children together?
I know many of us put off getting portraits of ourselves done for various reasons - life is busy, or we aren't happy with how we look right now, and want to wait until we loose a few pounds. But time moves quickly and before we know it, the moment is lost. I encourage you not to keep putting it off.
To encourage you to get portraits done with your mother, your grandmothers, your sisters, or your children, I am offering you a special Mother's Day portrait session. Make it a gift to yourself for Mother's Day, or a gift to your own mother. The details:
-- These mini sessions are offered in April and May.
-- Discounted session fee: $60 in my studio; $95 outdoors.
-- Collections start at $149.
-- 10 percent off any session album after the purchase of any collection.
-- You qualify for this special pricing as long as a mom is included in the portrait session (maternity & newborn sessions excluded).
-- These are mini sessions (30 minute session, one backdrop, one outfit, 10-15 proofs presented).
