Black Friday - Session Steal!


Mark your calendar, folks - this one is going to be HUGE.  We are offering HALF off sessions on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.  There will be a limit on how many we sell each day, so don't miss out! 

We will be selling gift certificates* valid for full sessions for 50% off. 
*Gift certificates purchased on Black Friday will expire April 30th 2012.  Sessions will be scheduled December through April.

What is a full session?  1-2 hours of photography, 2-3 locations, 2-3 outfits, and priceless memories!  These are regularly priced at $150 - but purchase on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday and get it for only $75!  It's a deal we will NOT offer again (until maybe black Friday next year!)

How does it work?  You buy gift certificates in increments of $150, but only pay $75!   You must email me your order between 12:00 a.m. Friday morning to 11:59 p.m. Saturday evening.  

Email me at
Subject: Black Friday Deal
List your name, phone number, and amount you are purchasing.  Please be sure to tell me what you want the amount on the gift certificate to be (you will only pay half) and how you would like to pay. 

We accept cash, check, and major credit cards.  We ask that you pay the invoice for your order within ONE week of purchasing them.  These would make great Christmas presents, wink-wink!

This really is a steal, guys.  We are going to be restructuring our pricing next year (as we do every year) and this gift certificate will save you big time next year!  If you are even remotely considering a session this winter - it's a no brainer.

Take care & enjoy your turkey before the SHOPPING begins! :)

We're moving!!

So I’ve been keeping my Facebook fans in suspense for long enough… It’s finally time to reveal what we’ve been cooking up! 

First off, I want to say that this last year of business has been an absolute JOY and we are SO thankful for everyone who has chosen us as their photographer.  You have no idea how much you’ve blessed us.

In order to improve and grow as a business, we’ve had to make some pretty tough decisions and one of those was WHERE our studio is located and how we operate as a business.  I personally love waking up at work (in our home based studio) and having the luxury of working some days in my PJs… however, Garren and I both know that if we want to truly set ourselves apart and excel (among a million other reasons)– we really need to take our studio OUT of our home. 

We want to have business hours, a place where our clients feel comfortable, I work to stay at work (so I am not editing photos at 2 a.m. and thinking I need to stay up later to finish), we want the ability to hire employees (someday), we want to make our studio suited for large family sessions, and most of all we really want to serve you better.

And of course when we have children it will be nice to not have to worry about keeping the kiddos out of the studio – a home is meant to be lived in, isn’t it?  ;)   (And no, I’m not trying to hint that kids are in the near future like some of you guys were guessing on our fan page – hee hee!  SOMEDAY we want children and we are just trying to pave a path the best we can for our future business and personal lives.)

Now you’re probably wondering… Where are you going?!

Don’t worry – we’re not going far and we will still take care of our clients in surrounding areas.  The door that has opened up to us is the newly renovated WPA building in downtown Salem (217 West Main St).  When Garren and I first stepped foot into the space - we immediately started imagining our business there.  We weren't looking to move the studio just yet - but we couldn't let an opportunity like this slip away.  The location is perfect and we have the opportunity to finish and decorate it how we wish. 

It doesn't look like much yet............ but picture this:

We are hoping to have the space finished and open our retail location by Jan. 1st 2012.  Once the studio is up and running we hope that you will all come and see us!  I can't WAIT to share with you all the finished product!

Take care,
Rachel xoxo
