This is a continuation of Chelsi and Max's beautiful wedding... the portraits/ceremony and reception! This couple did a first look (seen in part 1) which really made it possible for them to have a relaxed time for portraits before the ceremony. We took them ALL before the ceremony... which also made the transition to the reception a breeze!
The signing of the Ketubah and the ceremony......
Let the party begin!!!!!
I absolutely love to do newborn sessions in the client's home because it is so much more relaxing for the parents and baby! I loved Jack's little session... so precious.
First birthdays are so special and I love to do cake smashes for babies! We took these at Burroughs Park in the morning and it was a beautiful day! This family wanted a family session along with his milestone session so they could get the most photos... He was so cute and loved his cake too! After the cake we put him in a little bath with bubbles.
I love all the photos from Chelsi and Max's wedding. This was also my very first Jewish ceremony. The ceremony and reception took place at the Garten Verein in Galveston, TX, which is a very unique rounded building with an attached park. These are the photos from the getting ready and first look.... stay tuned for the Ceremony, portraits and reception!
UPDATE!!! part 2 of Chelsi and Max's wedding is up to view here!
This sweet little guy's session was in my "home studio" ~ which is a rare occurrence ~ I typically do all my newborn sessions in the client's home but sometimes they prefer to do them in mine. In any case they are always so cute and sweet. I love newborns!
I will have 8 spots open for bluebonnet minis on March 28, 2015. The location will be either in Montgomery, TX area or Chappell Hill or Brenham, TX area. I will be emailing anyone that signs up about a week before the session with the exact location. Contact me to secure your spot! *payment is due in full upon booking*
I am excited to give a pretty product with my full priced sessions this year.. they will all be a little different going with what kind of session it is and what is offered with that session but they will all include a custom DVD or USB and a print release. I have photos of what to expect with my newborn sessions. My newborn sessions include 25 custom announcements (mailed directly to your home), a DVD of images, print release and keepsake memory book of 20-25 images.
Examples of some newborn announcements (these are mailed directly to you so you can send them out ASAP)
I have new packages for weddings in 2015/2016 and each package comes with a custom USB and some kind of wedding album or albums. I offer leather and linen albums, both with rigid, lay-flat pages. Custom engraving and cameo windows are available as well.
I was honored to be the first photographer for this sweet baby! We did a lifestyle newborn session, which are my favorite sessions, in the comfort of your own home and more relaxed. I come to you with everything I need and we use your home as the backdrop.
I know that no one is excited about a price increase... but I had to make some changes to my pricing structure and a lot of them are GOOD for you!
First.. yes I did raise my portrait session pricing, but I also made all of my portrait sessions ALL INCLUSIVE! You no longer have to pick your favorites... I give you the best images with nothing more to buy at all, unless you want prints/canvas etc... and those purchases are a la carte. For my new Pricing visit THIS PAGE.
I want to take the time out to THANK every one of my repeat clients. I have some great families and people that come to me over and over for their family photos, new babies.. weddings.. anniversaries, and it makes my heart sing! You are the backbone of my business and without you and your lovely word of mouth advertising I wouldn't be here still taking photos 8 years later.
To my past clients: In 2015 your sessions are 10% off. Anyone that has previously had a session with me receives this discount! And more importantly I want to do a REFERRAL program.. Now that I am going to be keeping track of referrals, if you refer me to anyone you get a $50.00 credit for each one that books a FULL session with me ( this does not apply to my mini sessions I will have in summer or fall 2015). The family that books the session with your referral will get $20.00 off their first session with me.
Your $50.00 credit can be used for prints or to lower the cost of your session.. you can combine these credits so if you refer 6 people to me you get a free family session!
What you need to do: Its as simple as telling your friend that is looking for a photographer "Hey check out my photographer, Tara," They will hopefully email me and I will ask them if anyone referred them. I am going to be keeping track of this!
You get: Once they book and and are paid in full you get a $50 credit - you can combine them or use it for prints from a past session or a new one.. whatever you wish. *The catch* Credits will expire 12 months after you get it. So use them... and you cannot combine the discount with credits or other coupons. Discounts are also only available to use on full price sessions. Not mini sessions*
They get: $20.00 off their first session with me... then they are "repeat clients" and can start referring me if they wish!
I hope everyone is as excited about this as I am! Thank you again for all being so awesome! Have a great 2015!
What can I say about 2014 except that I have the best clients out there! I also went to Disney World and Mexico.. woohoo!
I think I got everyone in here... you may see some faces a few times, because that is how great my clients are!
