Y’all, it’s SUMMERTIME!!!  You can literally hear the shouts of joy from every school-aged kid in the area and the collective sigh of relief from every parent and teacher that WE MADE IT.  We did it.  And now three long, glorious months of slow paced mornings, late, lazy evenings, and lively road trips stretch blissfully before us.  Last week while walking the dogs I spotted my first lightening bugs of the season, circling under the old oaks that were dripping with spanish moss in my neighbor’s yard, and my heart did a little leap for joy because the BEST days of the year are finally hear.  I know that many credit Christmas as being the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”  Not me.  Give me a sizzling hot day at the beach, a tall glass of sweet iced tea, and an 8:00 sunset and I’m a happy girl.

So, let’s Celebrate!!!  We have a few deals here at the studio that we’d like to pass your way!

First and foremost, it’s Memorial Day Weekend.  Don’t let the gravity of this day pass you by.  Remember why we even have a Memorial Day.  It’s here to honor those who died while serving in our country’s armed forces.  That is HUGE.  The sacrifice that was made by so many mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters…all for the protection of our freedom.  It’s something I will never truly be able to wrap my mind around, but something I am so incredibly thankful for.  And as a small way of saying thank you, military ALWAYS receives half off membership plans and sessions and Limited Edition pricing here at Collin M. Smith Portrait Photography.  Please feel free to email so we can tell you more about this incentive program! collin@cmsmithportraits.com

Another incentive program that we offer here at the studio is for local hospital employees!  Did y’all even know that you have an incentive program with Mcleod?!  It blows me away how many employees are shocked that this exists when we tell them about it!  Y’all should open up that little booklet, it’s chock full of fun things for you!  And we have no idea if Carolina’s has one as well, but we most definitely do extend our offer to Carolina’s employees.  It’s our little way of saying {We’re self employed and our insurance isn’t the greatest so if you ever see us in your line of work please show us some love} THANK YOU for all that you do.  So, what is the offer?  Half priced First Year Baby Plan, or we will also extend the savings to our Five Year Plan.  If you are a hospital employee, be sure to let your friends in on this deal!

Remember Hurricane Matthew?  You know, when every part of South Carolina from here to the coast shut down and we had nothing better to do than, ummmm…play board games? 😉 WELL….a Baby Boom is coming!  I mean, really, how many rounds of Monopoly can a person play, right?  So here’s our Hurricane Baby special: Our First Year Baby Plan is being offered at $100 off!  And, no, your baby does not technically have to be a hurricane baby to take part!  Feel free to purchase this plan no matter when your little one is due to arrive!

Lastly, as part of our summer kick off we are offering a single session summer portrait package.  This is the perfect option for the family that has older kids and doesn’t necesarrily need the number of sessions that one of our portrait plans offers.  This package includes the session fee, a Designer 16×20 wall portrait, a set of images that you may post to Facebook, and a Christmas Card image for $499 (over $650 value).  This session may be used anywhere around the Pee Dee area, in Columbia, or {my personal favorite please everyone choose this option} THE BEACH!!!  If you know me at all then you know that my favorite place on the planet is the South Carolina coast, so heading there every single night for a session this summer would not hurt my feelings at all. 😉

Josey was a stunning bride!  Now that the wedding is over we are thrilled to share her bridal session with you!  This location could not have been more beautiful.  It’s the Josey house!  It’s been in her family for years, so naturally it was the perfect location to do her bridal session.  There aren’t many places where you can combine an old southern mansion, pretty gardens, and rustic countryside in one look, but this place certainly offered that.  Joey, you were a beautiful bride!

I tell you what, this little sugar baby did NOT want to fall asleep for us!  I think he was scared he was going to miss out.  I predict that he grows up to be one fun loving kid!  What a cutie, though.  Sweet Maddux’s parents are pretty huge Braves fans, and I just love that they wanted to incorporate that into his session.  And that sweet little grin he shot our way out in the portrait garden?!  That melts me every single time!  Baby Maddux, welcome to the world, precious boy!  We’re so glad you’re here!

Sweet boy!!  I can’t believe this baby boy is already a year old!  It seems like yesterday I was curling his rolly-poly little self up and placing him on his grandaddy’s guitar.  Now he’s sitting up on it all by himself, and before we know it he’ll be playing it too!  Gracious these years fly by fast, don’t they?  Ben’s theme for his first birthday party is Mickey, and his momma sure did do a great job of incorporating that into his session.  Isn’t that the cutest?!?  Happy Birthday, Ben!  We are so LOVING watching you grow up!

Collin and I are so excited to see Morgan and Wes become husband and wife!  And we’re kind of partial to them because they happened to choose a pretty perfect date for their wedding.  Yep, we’ll be celebrating our seventeenth (WOW!!) anniversary on their wedding day!  It’s a pretty perfect day to get married, guys!  Collin did this session for them this past winter, and I just love everything about the way that it turned out.  But I have to laugh at them swatting away bugs in the dead of winter.  Gotta love good old South Carolina!  Morgan and Wes, we’re so excited for y’all!  Not much longer now!
