January 2018 and the New Year

As will all good things, 2017 has come to an end.  But, now it’s a new beginning and time to start looking ahead to what 2018 has to offer.  There is so much potential in this year that it’s hard to comprehend at times.  But really, it’s all up to us!  Here are some of our goals for 2018:

• Build a new studio facility (will also be available for rent)

• Offer photography classes

• Photograph more wonderful people than last year

• Stay positive all year long

What are some of your New Year’s goals and dreams?

 

Christmas

Now is the perfect time to schedule Christmas portraits.  Put it off any later, and you might just miss the deadline for a Christmas delivery.  With the print volume from the photo lab increasing this time of year, production runs 1-2 weeks later.  So plan ahead for those portrait gifts!

Portraits

What makes up a portrait.  Well for one, there needs to be someone in the photo.  You.  You make a portrait so special.  Without you, it would just be a photo of a background, a place outdoors, or the grass or rocks around.  You give a portrait life, you make it important.  You make a portrait an heirloom.  Something your family will treasure for generations.  You give the portrait a meaning to exist.  Without you, there is no purpose of a portrait.

What do I specialize in.  Portraits of you.  417-894-0230

Wednesday is Drawing Day

Today I’m giving away a 5×5 Framed photo from one of your sessions.  But you have to do a little work to win.  Suggest all your friends to become our Fans on Facebook and I’ll enter your name into the hat.  Next Wednesday I’ll draw from those who entered and announce the winner!  You can earn a second entry by leaving a review of your experience with the studio on the Fanpage.   This allows everyone to enter, past clients, current clients and any complimentary sessions!!!  That’s it, go enter!!!   HERE IS THE FANPAGE

Passion – Love – Commitment

Not only are these three things feelings that I have for my relationship with my spouse.  They are three feelings I have toward the artwork I produce.  It’s been a wonderful journey to arrive to where I am today and I am truly grateful that I have passion, love and commitment to my craft or I would have given up out of frustration years ago.  But enduring through my creative pitfalls and learning techniques that I lacked when I first started, I believe I’ve truly become an artist today.  So when you schedule your appointment, you aren’t just getting someone who thinks they can make a quick buck because I have a fancy camera.  You are getting someone committed to what they are doing.  Someone who is committed to giving you the best experience and the best end result possible.  Don’t be fooled my imitators or newcomers with no experience.  It will save you  a dollar or two to start with, but down the road those feelings of regret and remorse will not bring your irreplaceable memories back for you.

Don’t let Fall Pass You By.

Fall is here.  Soon the beautiful leaves won’t be.  Don’t hesitate, get your photos done before the weather turns cold.  Get the beautiful fall colors while they are going on outdoors.  Get them done in time for Christmas!  So many reasons to get your photos done now!  Do I have to list them all?

New Holiday Products

Wrist Garland
This charming charm bracelet has a fashionable updated look! Yet, the sterling silver bracelet is extremely comfortable because it is so lightweight. The chain, in 100% sterling silver, has oval links that have a slight rope texture. It comes with a pewter “Camyrn” charm with the swirl back.  Additional “Camyrn” charms can also be ordered for a full charm bracelet look.

This bracelet is so beautiful and something your wife would LOVE to have as a gift this holiday season.  Typically I charge a setting fee, plus $125 for the bracelet & $35 for additional charms.  For the next 13 days I’m offering the bracelet with a mini 20-30 minute session (indoors or out)  for $75!!!!  If you need another Charm they are only $20 during this promotion. After November 1st they go back to normal retail pricing!

Welcome to August

Well, technically it is August 2nd.  And this month….yes….School starts up again.  Where does the time go?  I can’t even believe how fast it has gone.  I still want to take a trip if I can.  One last big trip with the family before it’s back to the books.  Any ideas where I should go?  Well while you think it over, take a look at this recent smash the cake baby session!
