Hello Blog reader/friend/ and (future?) Client!
It's December 21, 2022 and the Holidays are here!
I want to wish everyone reading, every blessing of the Season...no matter what holiday(s) you observe.
May it bring Peace, Joy, Love and Laughter to you and your loved ones into the New Year as well.
Here's an update about what's happened around here in the 4 weeks since my "Soft Opening":
The first "Holiday Mini Marathon" sessions were a success! Despite only having a couple of weeks to plan, implement and market them...many families came in and had a little fun creating memories (and beautiful, custom #HolidayGreetingCards!). Everyone...even the parents... enjoyed an "after-session cookie" or two.
THANK you for coming in <3. (And, for anyone having family coming in from out of town wanting or needing a portrait done while they're here for the holidays, Please Note: the Studio will be closed Saturday December 24 through Monday December 26. I will re-open Tuesday December 27 at 10 am. As always, Walk-Ins ARE accepted whenever time permits ...but it's better to Book Your Session Ahead.
"Jazz Hands With Santa"
How many of us can say that we did "Jazz Hands with Santa"? (Well... at least 2 of us can ;) )
One of the best memories I am taking away from this first Christmas in business on High Street, is having Santa's house set up directly across the street from the studio. It's been AGES since I've shared any secrets with Santa...so one evening, on my way home...I told the hubs (pictured on the right) "I'm gonna play a little trick with Santa and tell him I want to sit on his lap". *snickers* I'm not exactly "petite", yanno?.
So.... over we went, but Santa didn't bat an eyelash! He just invited me in! Of course, the jig was up...there was NO way I wanted to wind up on the "naughty list" by breaking his legs when I sat down on his knee! He was a great sport when I asked for a photo with him, too. His helper elf captured this special memory in the #crapcellsnap shown above for posterity. (I mean: #PhotosOrItNeverHappened, right?
When the holidays are over and things have settled down, I intend to see about joining (or otherwise supporting) the #KiwanisOfSeafordDelaware better in the coming year. They do SO much for so many children and their families throughout the year...and always with a kind smile, humble attitude and loving heart. (Remind me to share my own personal story/experience with the Kiwanis of Seaford with you, someday...will ya?)
And that brings me to the "Contest" part (it's up there in the Title...see it? *smiles* )
The general consensus seems to be "Spring!" (among the other two choices of "Valentine's Day" or "Easter"). So... I'm on the hunt for one or two backdrops to use in the studio for portraits with a Spring or Easter feel for Themed Minis and Full Portrait sessions.
Would YOU like to win a complimentary Spring-themed In-Studio Mini session?
(I THOUGHT you might! *smiles* )
Here's how it will go:
In the coming week, I will post two or three top contenders for my choice of Spring themed backdrops that are top quality and versatile enough for me to build sets around for Easter, Bridal, or Mom-And-Me Sessions in 2023.
To be entered in the drawing for a complimentary Spring Mini-Session simply:
Vote for your choice of favorite backdrop
Share the Poll/Post in at least 2 other places (can be your personal FB page, your Business page, other social media pages you own or in Local FB groups to which you belong. ("LOCAL" being the operative word here. Winner must be local to Seaford, Delaware and able to come to the studio for a family or individual portrait mini session. Date and Time TBD.)
Watch for the Announcement post on my Page for the three backdrop options and the prompt to take action in order to win! Thank you ... and Good Luck!
With all that said...I want to thank everyone again, for making my first Holiday Season in the new Studio Space a success. I look forward to meeting/photographing you in the coming months....let's get you scheduled, soon okay!?
