Which means it’s time to start thinking ahead to cards and gifts! I’m so excited for the holiday portrait season this year, because with my new pricing and session options all Blessings clients will have the image files from their sessions which they can use in their own photo cards, and print portraits and gifts for everyone on their list! (Visit this page if you need a reminder on those new session options!)
I know many of you are waiting for my annual Holiday Mini Sessions. This year I don’t have a specific Holiday package since the image files are now always included. But I do have the $50 mini sessions (details on the pricing page here)!
October mini session dates are Monday the 17th and Saturday the 29th.
For November, the dates are Saturday the 19th and Tuesday the 22nd.
Standard sessions are also being scheduled for October, November, and December right now. My availability calendar for the remainder of 2011 can be found here.
Wondering where to go to get those photos turned into some fabulous cards? I highly reccommend Tiny Prints! They have over 1,000 options for Christmas photo cards. Everything from simple slimline cards with a single photo, to elaborate trifold cards with lots of space to show off those pictures. The ordering process couldn’t be simpler, you just upload your photos and add your greeting. And the pricing can’t be beat either! I know, this sounds like a commercial for them… But that’s because I’m so excited that my customers will have the option to use their photos in all those amazing cards this year!
If you’d like to schedule a session or have any questions, visit the contact page to get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Announcing February’s dates!

These 15 minute sessions will be offered on a couple specific dates each month, and are only $30! They are a great option for getting a quick updated photo of a single child. The Short & Sweet session dates for February are Tuesday the 15th and Saturday the 26th . A few restrictions apply: 1 child per session, 1 backdrop, no clothing changes, and not available for newborns. Contact me to book your spot soon, they tend to fill up very quickly!

Happy 2011! I love new years- a fresh start, a clean slate, and tons of possibilities and opportunities! I’m especially excited about what the year 2011 will bring for Blessings Photography, I have lots of fun things planned. Here’s a few quick highlights of what’s going on…
Short & Sweet Sessions
My mini session specials have always been very popular, so I’ve decided to add a permanent mini session option to the offerings at Blessings Photography. These 15 minute sessions will be offered on a couple specific dates each month, and are only $30! They are a great option for getting a quick updated photo of a single child. The Short & Sweet session dates for January are Saturday the 15th and Monday the 24th. A few restrictions apply: 1 child per session, 1 backdrop, no clothing changes, and not available for newborns. Contact me to book your spot soon, they are filling up very quickly!
Mark your calendar- the popular Valentines mini sessions are coming back again this year! They will be booked on Saturday, January 29th. Details will be announced soon!
Bye bye print collections, hello complimentary gifts! I’m so excited about this change. I found collections/packages to be a bit complicated and difficult to fit everybody’s individual needs. So the new complimentary gift program is all about choices for you! My clients may choose between several gift choices once your portrait order amount has reached incentive levels, the first one starting at $300. There’s too much to list here, but I’ll give you full details when you book your session (or if you request pricing info by email).
They are becoming more and more popular, and it’s no wonder why. Purchasing digital files gives you the right to print them as you wish, whatever size and however many you choose. And of course you get to hold on to those images for future use (like slideshows at graduation and weddings!). In addition to the Digital Collection which was previously available, high resolution files are now available for purchase either individually or in a package of 10 files. Also, all portrait orders of $300 or more from regular sessions will receive web size files of all their proofs for free!
If you haven’t already “liked” Blessings Photography on Facebook, you really should. I announce special deals and contests on the page every once in a while. And you can tag yourself in your Blessings images to share on your own personal Facebook page, or if you are my FB friend (Tera Christianson) I will tag you automatically. Come join the fun!
I intend to stay caught up here on the Blessings Blog, so that sneak peeks are posted within a day or two of sessions. And when your session is posted on the blog, I will email you to notify you, and also let you know about the rewards for blog comments!
Thank you to all my wonderful clients for a fabulous 2010! I am truly blessed every day that I get to work with such wonderful people and adorable children. I’m looking forward to what 2011 has to bring and can’t wait to see you all again!
