First and foremost, Happy New Year.  I’ve been swampped in the land of client orders, and holiday planning for what seems like 2 months.  Add in the fact we hosted 5 versions of Christmas, as well as a baptism over the holidays, and you may understand the lack of posting on here for awhile.

2010 is here and with that comes lots of new plans and ideas in my head.  First of all…..VALENTINE’S DAY Mini Sessions!  I’ve wanted to do these for the past few years, and I’m now finally able to offer them!  Look back soon for a workshop offer for YOU!  Yes, that’s right,  a workshop for my clients…time to learn how to use that new (or old) dSLR (or regular SLR)!

Did the Holidays pass before you managed to get a new photo of your child? Looking for something unique and adorable this Valentine’s Day?

I will be offering Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions at the studio in Detroit on January 17th. For $95 you’ll get a 20 minute sessions with 8 proofs promised in an online private gallery for your viewing. The session will also include your choice of 48 – 2.75″x4″ “class cards” or 24 – 4″x5.5″ flat cards. The class cards are a very cute alternative to the traditional store bought valentines your child usually passes out. Tape a heart shaped sucker on the back, and you’re good to go.  Sessions will be available from 10:30am-3:30pm.

There will also be special digital mini collections available for purchase.  Click, mini sessions, to reserve your spot NOW!

If you’ve seen my site or blog at all, you know Miss V.  And if you know Miss V, you know her flair for knee socks!  I have to be honest, this is the session I look forward to every fall.  I want to see what kind of cute and crazy socks mom picks out for Miss V.  I have to say she did not disappoint me yet again!

I had a blast at this session, and I’ve got to thank dad for helping me explore the building my studio is in!  You helped me find some great places to shoot!

If you remember this fall, my childhood dreams came true when I met New Kids on the Block and then scored front row seats for the concert :) Well tomorrow I’m going to meet them again. WOOOO! (Yes, I’m aware, I’m a dork).

My favorite New Kid is doing a book drive this summer in an effort to provide children’s books to under privileged kids. They are collecting books at the concert, but also donations online. Last summer I did a charity promotion donating portions of my summer sales to the 3 Day Walk (donating over $150). This summer I’m going to donate to First Book via Joe’s Charity “Let’s Get This”.

I’ve teased about a summer studio promotion with a discounted session fee.  Well let’s do this!  In July and August, I will offer mini sessions at the studio in Detroit (Russell Industrial Center), not only at a discounted rate ($60), I will also donate $10 from every session booked to the Let’s Get this Foundation (an equivilent of 5 books per session booked).

Look for dates to be released VERY VERY VERY soon!  Tell your friends and family about this amazing deal!  $60 sessions AND 10 books being donated to the underprivileged children PER SESSION!  It’s INSANE!

And I can’t leave without some eye candy 😉

The Secret…..

September 16, 2008

My Studio :), originally uploaded by LilSweetPeaPhoto.

You’ll have to excuse the crappy photos. But I must share my secret. I’ve got a STUDIO! I’m not going to lie, I’ve wanted a beautiful natural light since I saw Audrey Woulard’s at her workshop. But I knew the timing wasn’t right for me.

I knew when it was meant to be, it would happen. Well, my time is NOW! If you modeled for us in Detroit, you already know the building, Russell Industrial Center. I’m going to have an 800 sqft beautiful urban natural light studio.

Right now you’re seeing the grungy before images. We will be working on exposing the natural red brick that is under the windows. And we will be painting the walls (both the cinderblock and the drywall) white.

I’m hoping in October to start offering sessions in the studio. So check back for some special studio only offers! Never fear, I will still be offering on-location session as well.
