We're nearing the time again for our annual Spring Portrait sessions at Bulloch Hall. I have heard from many of you via email as well as spoken to you directly and have thus decided to change some things up this Spring. While many enjoy having their children see and get photographs with the fluffy bunnies around Easter, an equal if not greater amount have opposite remarks about the bunny portraits.
Most of the comments center around the fact that while portraits with the bunnies are cute, they're just not something that they want to display on their walls or around their homes. So I'm always trying to please my customers and give them what they want. Case in point was when the bunny portraits first were offered over five years ago. They were done indoors to better control the rabbits and the lighting. Well clients requested an outdoor location and after searching, I was able to form a relationship with Bulloch Hall in Roswell to do the portraits in their gardens.
So with that being said, there will be no bunnies this year. And while I know that I cannot please everyone and there will some people who are disappointed, I also feel that many people will be quite excited. This doesn't mean they won't be back next year or the year after, but for this year no fluffy critters. In doing it this way there are huge benefits; first you get to get beautiful portraits on the entire grounds of Bulloch Hall which are stunning in Spring. Secondly, by waiting to do these in Mid-April we will ensure that everything will fully be in bloom which can be a problem in doing portraits around Easter this year. I'm sorry but I see so many portraits done with children or families standing in the middle of dead grass and bare tree's and shrubs. If that is the look you're after, then go for it. But that is not what I intend to show.
Our "mini" sessions will be thirty minutes long which if you know how I shoot will ensure that we get tons of images with many different backgrounds and feels. Plus, we'll have time to not only do family portraits, but also individuals of each person or at least combinations of people based on what you're wanting. And everything will be done ahead of Mother's Day. Speaking of which, I'm going to have some special products to offer that will truly be a gift that Mom's will cherish forever, so be on the lookout for those soon.
The dates of the sessions are as follows: Saturday, April 16th from 9am - 6pm., and Sunday, April 17th from 11am - 5pm.
Cost: $209.95 and Includes: (5) fully retouched, high resolution digital files, and a private online gallery to share with family and friends and for viewing and ordering. You can book your sessions here.
