When One Door Closes, Another Opens

April 24, 2009

I had the privilege of shooting a session for my friend Shauwna’s graduation announcements yesterday! We had a lot of fun and she looks amazing! Check it out!
Oh, and don’t forget- 2010 senior sessions can only be booked until May 15th!


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.

dsc_0387There is only a month left to take advantage of the Mother’s Day Gift Package! For only $165 give Mom a gift she will always cherish. Husbands, consider a photo gift featuring you and your young children! Siblings, combine resources and offer a lasting memory of you – before you go off to school.

Also, mom will receive 15% off of any future prints from your session.

Feel Da Love.

March 18, 2009

I had the opportunity to follow mom Janene and daughters Hannah and Witny around Shelby Farms the other day! The atmosphere was great and each one of them is beautiful and filled with life. Not to mention… I got a lot of attitude out of them (which always helps photos)! However, this family has had its share of struggles lately – and there were some tearful moments as well.
