Memorial Day Mini Portrait Session

May 16, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

In the blink of an eye, one normal day of giggling children, poopy diapers and the sound of your child calling you 'mommy'.... will turn into tomorrow. It happens so fast - 'mommy' turns into 'mom', diapers turn into designer jeans and giggling turns into 'can I borrow the car?'  Let us capture the precious innocence of today. These moments are to be cherished.

With the exceptional talents of Lisa Patchem on hand, your family or children's portrait will be one to remember and reminisce about, for the rest of your lives. 

Here is your chance to bring the kids to a professional photographer while saving some cash on the side.

When?   Monday May 27 (Memorial Day) + Tuesday  May 28

Where?  Photography Sessions will be conducted at the Firehouse Art Center 667 4th Ave, Longmont (right next door!) in the Art Department room. (Enter on the Coffman Road side)

Ordering Sessions will be taking place at Lisa's Home Studio in downtown Longmont.

Why?   What a great chance to get professional photographs of your little ones! Save time and money with a mini session. It's half the cost, half the time but worth 100% of the investment.

Who?  Any little cutie pie above the age of 6 months (or able to sit up without assistance) to 8 years old. Most of our clients bring in children 6+months to 2 years of age.

How?    Sign up over the phone or via email. Slots fill up super fast! No joke! 

What?  We will have 1-2 photography sets per age group. The Mini Session fee is only $85.


Tips + Tricks

- Please bring only the children that are going to be photographed.  We love Grandmas, but please bring only one parent/guardian per child. (It will distract our little super stars!)

-ONLY ONE CHILD PER TIME SLOT. If you have two or more children signed up, each child has his or her own 20 min session.  (It is very difficult to photograph more than one child at a time, if you are interested in getting all your children together for one photograph please book LPP for a full session as our mini sessions cannot accommodate for multiple subjects.)

-Schedule a time slot for the child, not for what is convenient.  If 12:00 is Susie’s nap time, do not bring Susie in at 12:00!

-Simple clothing is the best.  Avoid too many patterned materials. Bring accessories! Head bands, necklaces, blankets, toys, etc.  Newer clothes photograph better than ratter older clothes.

-NO STILL PHOTOGRAPHY IS ALLOWED DURING SESSION. The minimum order will be raised to $300 if we notice photography stills being taken. If you would like to document your child’s experience, please video record his or her time in front of the camera. This is a great way to show friends and family on Facebook little Susie’s first photography experience!
