E.X.C.I.T.E.M.E.N.T!

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!

Ensuring Customer Satisfaction

April 15, 2009

As a photographer, I face a unique challenge: providing images of a person that not only present him or her in a way that they find flattering, but also in a style that they appreciate and prefer. While all people are beautiful in their different ways, some have a hard time appreciating their looks- so it can be difficult for them to truly enjoy a photo session and prints.

With every scheduled session, I host a complimentary consultation to discuss every aspect of the upcoming photoshoot with my client. If you are local, we can meet at Starbucks to view some examples of my work together. And if you are hours away, like my upcoming senior Ashley, we can schedule a phone consultation.

When we meet, I want you to do most of the talking. Now, don’t be scared- what I mean to say is that I want you to express your desires and concerns about your session. I will answer any questions you have, and talk a bit about important details, but discovering your personality and interests is the main purpose of the consultation.

We’ll talk about where you’re going to hang your photos; is this session for a new family portrait? baby announcements? just because?
I’ll ask you about anything interesting that you might like to incorporate: special hobbies, sports, your child’s favorite toy.
I’ll also get your favorite colors and musicians- to personalize any slideshows and other items.

Clothing! This is my favorite part. We nail down exactly what styles of outfits you’re going to bring, and I remind you about the important details: nails, hair, and jewelry!

And we definitely talk location! I can show you sample work from various places in the Mid-South. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each and decide which will work best for our project.

Lastly, I’ll let you know about the many options Picturesque Memphis offers in our boutique catalog: calendars, purses, brag books, invitations, etc. Everything is offered at an affordable price, and I don’t try to pressure you into any upgrades!

My biggest goal is to satisfy your request for affordable, quality portraits that capture your true personality. Contact me today to book your session – and I look forward to our consultation!

2010 Seniors!

April 13, 2009

Due to a photography position elsewhere (don’t worry, the following sad statement only applies to seniors – I will continue my business!), I will not be able to shoot senior sessions past May 15th. I invite you to visit my portfolio and consider getting quality portraits that truly capture your personality – without breaking the bank.

The state of my portfolio

March 3, 2009

Yes, I realize I don’t have a lot of portfolio images up; I’m working on it though! 🙂 I completely understand not hiring someone until you see proof of their work- so I am prepping several shots to upload in the near future. Check back! As always, join the Facebook group to get the latest updates and receive a $25 discount on your first photo session (limited time offer)!

Also…just have to brag for a second, cause I’m really excited (forgive me this once!): I have been selected as one of the Tennessee Home Education Association’s Outstanding Students! I will be one of two students representing Memphis at the Capitol on Rally Day, showcasing the “excellence of homeschooling.”
I was also selected as a semi-finalist in the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards for my work founding Picturesque Memphis. I am so happy about being honored in these ways; I know so many “outstanding” students and I’m grateful to be chosen.

Don’t forget to join me on FB! 🙂

Portrait Parties!

March 2, 2009

Do you like hosting fun parties? Do you have adorable children or would you simply like to have some gal time and be treated like a star? Host a portrait party and receive discounts off of prints while having a great time!

Popular ideas: a tween/teen glamour party, an Easter egg hunt children’s party, or a party in conjunction with makeovers such as Mary Kay. You don’t need a reason for a party though!

Find other moms whose kids are your age, and make sure there are 4-8 subjects for photos. Provide a clean house with appropriate lighting (a midday party is also great- we can shoot outside), light snacks for your guests, and fun activities to keep everyone occupied while waiting for their turn in the spotlight.

Session fees are only $25 per person, which includes a 20 minute session per subject as well as candids taken throughout the party. As host you will receive a 15% discount off prints!
