Brand new site!

July 2, 2009

I’m excited! Still working out a few kinks (I’m a Mac girl and Windows isn’t quite showing what I’d like to see!), but it’s there for you to visit. All new portrait collections and personalized boutique designs are available! www.picturesquememphis.com



June 18, 2009

Picturesque Memphis is announcing its re-launch very shortly! Fresh new look, website, and tailored packages specifically matched to your session!
The website will be located at www.picturesquememphis.com– right now that links directly to this blog, but that will soon change! The website is creative and offers you an even better look at the photographic vision Picturesque Memphis offers.

When the exact date of the re-launch is finalized, we’ll announce it here first- so check back frequently! Better yet, subscribe to be notified of it via email!

Hey tweens! Want to score a free portrait session that’s all about YOU? Then keep reading!
Picturesque Memphis is giving away a session (worth $125!) to one lucky tween between the ages of 9 and 13. If you’re chosen, we’ll talk together and pick out the exact location and props you’d like to help capture your unique personality and interests!

Plus, you will be one of Picturesque Memphis’ valued spokesmodels! What does this mean? Well, you and your parents’ opinions about products, presentation, and other important business aspects will be highly important! You will also receive some adorable referral cards to give out to friends and family who need portraits. And the best part? You’ll receive rewards when they book sessions!

Sounds great, right? Here’s what I need from you for your entry:

1. A recent photo of just you. This is your way of showing me YOUR unique personality! Be creative and use your outfit, hair, props, etc to showcase your attitude 🙂

2. A written statement (work together with mom and dad!) telling me just how you plan to promote Picturesque Memphis as a spokesmodel. Consider a variety of ways: your school, online networking (Facebook, etc), parents’ contacts/coworkers- put your thinking caps on and show me what you’ve got!

3. A written statement from your parents permitting you to enter this contest and me to use your entry in promotional materials.

Email these together to picturesquememphis@gmail.com – and put “Tween Giveaway” in the subject line. Include you and your parents’ names, along with a phone number to reach you at.
Deadline is June 20th– so get creative! I can’t wait to see your entries 🙂

My last senior session!

May 17, 2009

I started my assistant job at a local senior studio last week, so I’m unavailable for 2010 bookings! I know, you’re very sad now. But cheer up! I can still take your family/maternity/children’s/newborn portraits! Or if your 2009 senior wants some updated photos, I can help with that, too!

However, I had sooooo much fun with my final 2010 senior! Ashley is so beautiful inside and out, and the results were outstanding! Here’s a few previews:
