The Holiday Portraits Sessions Continue!
One of our favorite traditions each year is a free holiday portrait sessions for our current and past couples. We get a lot of raised eyebrows when we say we gift an annual holiday portrait session to our couples and their families. Usually followed by a lot of, “did you say, gift, as in, for free?” and very puzzled looks. I’ve even had people say they’re absolutely sure they misheard me.
To clarify, yes, we do in fact, offer free holiday portrait mini-sessions for our clients. We offer these portrait sessions on specific dates during the holiday season. It’s different every year, and there is always a theme of some kind. Because we get far too excited about this, our team spends at least three months planning and booking our mini-sessions. Plus, we love working in some fun surprises each year.
This year we learned a few things, the word “installation” means something. A whole lot of work. The insane amount of work, not to mention fishing wires that were involved made for a fun and festive backdrop for the holiday themed photos plus it was an eye catcher for the little ones who were very interested in seeing what was hanging from the ceiling.
We obviously had some delicious treats and great coffee. Because what are the holidays without amazing coffee and treats?!
Obviously, photography is deeply important to us. I personally grew up with my grandmother leading the way with, “stand over there, I want to grab a photo real quick” and I treasure all the photos that I have thanks to her brilliant skill and love of print. I want our couples to have that same experience. Not just on their wedding day, but throughout their lives. Things change, and I am a huge proponent that you need a beautiful portrait at minimum once a year. A holiday mini-session can be a great way to capture memories and celebrate the season while making sure that you document that once a year’s passing of time.
On a personal note, we love seeing our couples and their growing families every year. It was amazing to see how all the little ones have grown and seeing all the sweet fur babies again!
Until next year… which yes, we already have ideas for.
