Here’s a copy of our spring newsletter.


Wedding Season 2009

The 2009 wedding season has begun and looks to be a wonderful year despite the overall economy. While our clients’ wedding budgets are tighter, we’ve been able to tailor packages to suit our clients’ exact needs so they’re only paying for what they want.

While dates are booking nicely we still have at least one opening each month for the rest of the year so your referrals are always welcome. If we are already booked on that day we have a referral list of some of the best wedding photographers in the state of all budget levels.


Anytime Sessions

With the focus on weddings in 2009 there’s been a few changes to our portrait offerings. While we still do single, family, senior and pet portraits we’re now calling these sessions, “Anytime Sessions” and treating them in much the same way we would an engagement session in that the goal is to capture this time in the subjects life and not just some pictures on a boring background.

The two levels of these sessions differ in the length of the session and the selection of final images. The session fees include a memory book and the ability to purchase prints at greatly reduced prices. Most clients have a set amount to spend on prints so our approach is to have them be able to get a large selection of prints instead of one or two for the same amount.

Check out the portrait information page on the blog for more details.


New Edition to the Family

There’s a new edition to the family you might have seen if you saw us at Furry Scurry, Porthos. He’s a six month old Bichon Frise (or bichin frizzy as I like to call him) . A great little guy who often hangs out at the studio with me. We’ve just finished “puppy pre-school” and will be starting obedience classes soon.


Classes at the MHP Studio

Since the bulk of my work this year has been outside of the studio I’ve been looking for someone to share the space with. It’s just a shame to have 1800 sqft or shooting and meeting space sitting empty most of the time.

I’m happy to announce we found the perfect match with Illuminate Photography Workshops.

Director Efrain Cruz has put together a great team of instructors covering everything from Digital 101 beginners classes to advanced photoshop.

Since most the classes take place outside of my normal studio time it’s been a perfect fit so far and I hope you’ll take a look at their class offerings for your own photography education.


That’s it for this issue.
