Wow. Things have been CRAZY. Can you believe it’s already the middle of FEBRUARY?!?! I SO Can’t! This year is flying by. And I love it because I’m having fun, but I feel like there’s SO MUCH studio news I need to share and I had no idea where to start. So, I’m just going to devote an entire post to it. 🙂
First, it’s VALENTINE’S weekend!!! Don’t you love it? If you have waited until the last minute (like me!) and need a great gift, give us a call! A Fabulous client and friend told us on facebook this week that all she wanted for Valentine’s was a Collin M. Smith Portrait Photography gift card. PERFECT gift!!! If you think your Love would love that gift as well, call or email us. We’ll set you up! 843-665-4646 or email@example.com
Speaking of Facebook…Become a FAN of Collin M. Smith Portrait Photography if you haven’t already! We are holding monthly contests on the fan page and so far the prizes have been pretty great. Last month we gave away a $50 gift card to one of our favorite restaurants in town, The Drive In! And then last night we gave away a 3 hour Spa Package at McLeod Health and Fitness and a Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience. It’s been a lot of fun seeing the guesses to the trivia questions and like I said, we will be doing it at least once a month. But the only way to participate is to be a FAN of Collin M. Smith Portrait Photography. We have some great prizes coming up, so be on the look-out! Here’s a link to the fan page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Collin-M-Smith-Portrait-Photography/243001977026?ref=ts
Also, we still have a couple of openings left for the February 20th Limited Edition, Pop of Color. CAN’T WAIT for this one!!! $45 session fee and up to 50% off of portrait prices. Give us a call to book your session!
Completely unrelated, but don’t y’all think Mary Claussen looks EXACTLY like a young Lindsay Lohan?!? Think “Parent Trap Lindsay”. Gorgeous girl!!
Our next Limited Edition will be Easter sessions, on March 12th and 13th! Can you believe it’s already time to start thinking about EASTER?!?! We will be putting examples of the “look” up in a post soon, but if you already know that you want one of these sessions, go ahead and give us a call. We are already about halfway full for Saturday and haven’t advertised it yet. Easter is the most popular Limited Edition that we offer, so book early to reserve your spot! As always, the session fee for this Limited Edition is $45 and portraits are up to 50% off. And, of course, the session is FREE for you who are members of the 5 Year Plan!!!
AND…is anybody else ready to go to the beach?!? WE ARE!!! We will be heading to Garden City for Spring Break, March 28th through April 2nd. And we want to photograph you!!! For this beach week only, we will be offering sessions at half off AND there will be NO travel fee since we will already be down there! I LOVE beach sessions SO MUCH, and I’m really looking forward to this week. Also, if you have another beach spot that is more meaningful to your family, we will be happy to travel a few beaches over!
Guess What?! Collin was on the radio yesterday! That’s right, Folks, I’m married to a local Radio Star! HA! 😉 In all seriousness, though, he was on there for a pretty great reason. To talk about The $100 Portrait Project!!! This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the project, and to date we have donated $5000 to The Children’s Miracle Network. We are THRILLED with this number, and want to thank ALL of you who have participated and made this possible. Together, we want to make the number even BIGGER for 2010. Our next event will be held at William Campbell and Associates on March 16th from 5 until 7 (call for directions!). As always, the event will be perfect for families, children, professional headshots, or anything else that you may be able to come up with! We will also have angel wings and tutus. For $100, Collin will photograph you and give you one FULL RESOLUTION digital image for you to do with what you like. Have a wall portrait created, gift portraits for friends and family, greeting cards…the options are never-ending! The BEST part, though, is that at least half of the money will go to The Children’s Miracle Network!
Okay, I think that may be all for now. Just a side-note, we typically are booking sessions 4 to 6 weeks out. Keep that in mind when planning your next session. And if you would like a newborn session, please call as EARLY (a couple of months before your due date is best) as possible! Those sessions are SOOO time sensitive and it is so important that you call early.
There is nothing that Collin and I love more than working with you to preserve your precious memories through portraits. Thank you for allowing us into your lives, to stop time for a moment, and give you the ability to hold onto that moment forever. We truly feel honored to do this work on a daily basis!
